“It was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This hotel definitely had it's pros and cons. The location is a short ride to the Old City (about 60 THB by tuk tuk) and around a 20 minute walk to row of restaurants (there's a mexican, japanese, tapas and thai restaurant on that row) if you exit through the *BACK* of the hotel. Walk through the hotel dining area and you'll see glass doors. Walk through it to get to the back building which is also part of the hotel, but a much older building where they have their seminar room and spaces that they rent out to businesses like car rental, laundromat, minimart, furniture shop etc. The walk through this part of the hotel is about a 3 minute walk n is fairly creepy esp at night. But it'll cut u through to the road that leads straight into the Old City. That'll save u time and money on tuk tuk.

I got a Superior room on the 16th floor. It was much bigger than i expected and had a little kitchen. The bathroom was very spacious and had a separate shower and bathtub. The bed and room was reasonably clean. The bathroom however needed some scrubbing on the walls in the shower area. We used the bathtub shower instead. But despite the little bathroom grime, I am generally pleased with the room overall. It had a big fridge, and spacious wardrobe. For anyone thinking of adding another bed in this room, you'll have ample room.

The only problem i had with my stay that really affected my comfort was actually the noise the bed frame makes when you get on, off or whenever you toss. Loud enough to even wake the person beside you.

Some other pros and cons: the room was quiet, the housekeeping staff were efficient and quick to attend to any request, the pool looks nasty, the wifi was great, tv had a decent number of english speaking channels, room had plenty of electrical outlets (i counted: around 6 or 7) so u can charge all of your electrical gadgets at one time.

It's located on highway and huay kaew road that easy to hide away from hard traffic. The room is very big with a small kitchen, standard bedroom and bathroom, the price is acceptable, ABF is good quality. I always choose furama when stay ar Chiang Mai. Don't miss dinner at Xanadu restaurant.

Booked a Deluxe King room on-line and check-in was straight forward although for some reason the hotel had us booked in for 3 nights instead of 2. The hotel has been a grand building in the past but is showing its age now and things are being overlooked.

After arriving in our room, I opened the curtains to find an empty beer can sitting on the balcony, together with copious amounts of pigeon droppings. The room was comfortable although the air conditioning struggled to cool the room.

The following morning we visited the breakfast buffet, and I realize we are in Thailand, but the western breakfast really was terrible.

In summary, the hotel was satisfactory and the room comfortable, but I'm not sure I'd book in again.

Having stayed at the Furama Sathorn Bangkok I was confident that the chiang mai furama would be similar. How wrong I was....

I paid for an up grade and breakfast , only to find that the breakfast was poor quality, and no assistance any where to get cutlery, the bathroom very dated and sink blocked, the floor 5 pool area covered with bird droppings from the trees on the top floor. Pools very dilapidated, and not particularly nice, and the afternoon I was there very noisy as a function was being prepared

Not a good experieece at all, best avoided..

I have stayed at the Furama in Chiang Mai, on a number of occasions and will be back there with some friends in November.

It is a three star hotel and you get what you pay for. On my first stay I had booked in to a Standard room which I wasn't very happy with, so I upgraded to a Deluxe King for a few dollars more. I was more than satisfied with this and would suggest that this is the best pitch for most people.

The hotel is fine, situated out of the noisy Night Market at the other end of town, but close enough for a Tuk Tuk to get you anywhere, for around 80 bht each way.

I agree in part that some of the common areas are a little aged but the rooms are good and cleaned daily.
