Room very spacious, clean and bed very comfortable. Strong wifi and great aircon. Staff very helpful and friendly. Except very noisy from the disco pub at the 1st level. I'be to bear the noise every night after 3am then can sleep. Maybe is cheap and many local Thai will also choose to stay here, but it's unsafe for a single... More

I have been staying here off and on since 1982 (before they built the tower), have always enjoyed my stays, and never experienced any of the problems that others post here. This hotel has always met or exceeded all my most important standards: It was clean, the plumbing worked well, and the air conditioning worked very well. I appreciate the... More

This hotel is rundown. Room disgraceful. Depressing. Filthy. Mouldy. No WiFi in rooms. I wouldn't recommend it at all. I read the mixed reviews. I should have booked elsewhere. Don't stay here! Pick up from airport guy couldn't speak any english. No tea or coffee or electric jug. Very disappointed.

Right next to the Kalare Night Market and in the centre of Chiang Mai this is a great base. Not the most modern building and showing its age a little, nevertheless this is an excellent hotel.

First the good. Location. Breakfast. The bad: this hotel is really feeling its age. It is run down, smelly, and shabby. My room stunk pretty badly. They have a paucity of larger beds, so I had a room with two singles. I am not a big man, but my feet hung over the edge. The selector for the bath did... More

I booked 7 nights, only stayed 5. Price through Agoda was reasonable, and i stayed there a few years ago. Lovely reception area. Good first impression. Got in my room, oh dear. Old, aged, odour, dirty bathroom. I was in the 6 storey block at the front. I spoke to someone who stayed in the tower and they were more... More

...a wonderfully pleasant surprise! Having read these reviews, I really did not expect much. I had previously stayed at The Royal Lanna Hotel and had a less than pleasant stay. Pornping could not have been more different. The most important aspect that excels here is the staff. Their positive attitude and overt willingness to help was so impressive. For example,... More

Once upon a time this was probably one of the grandest hotels in Chiang Mai, but those days are long gone. The rooms are in pretty poor condition with wall paper peeling off the walls, stains in the carpet and that musty smell you get from old buildings.They do wash the sheets daily, but have clearly been used for many...

This hotel is old, tired and very much outdated. The location is near the Night Bazaar and therefore very convenient. The room was average at best, a little grotty and clearly showing its age. It appears no effort has been made to even minimally modernise and spruce up the place. Despite this, the staff were attentive and friendly, breakfast was... More
