“Great staff, drab, weary hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

We, family and friends, had booked into this hotel which is very convenient to the railway station and advertised itself as "recently renovated". Lobby was fine and the reception staff very friendly. As we exited the lift, however a threadbare, holed carpet was a surprise and the room that we were offered was awful. We went back to reception and said that there was no way we could stay there and offered to pay for one night - we had booked for four. The receptionist was very nice about it and said she would have to call her boss. She did so, and returned with a message that as we were so disappointed he would not even let us pay for one night, so we left with nothing to pay. Where else but Thailand would that happen?
The staff were very pleasant; we had a (very poor but served with a smile) coffee in the restaurant while waiting; the rooms were clean but very basic; there was free wifi.
We don't travel 5* but we are a bit old for back-packing.
This is clearly a back-packers' hotel and is very handy for trains and not too far from the Night Market area as well as being incredibly cheap.

When we arrived, the staff were friendly. Our bags had not made the flight and were being dropped off at the hotel. The airline phoned them to let us know we could expect them at 9pm. The staff did not even let us know despite us asking them to ring our room if they heard anything. We waited in all day because of this and then missed a trip due to them not letting us know - despite asking! The stay was topped off by my friend asking for a toilet roll because there was none in our room when we arrived. The reception staff (of which there were 6 and no other guests in the whole of the hotel) said they were unable to get this for us and directed us to a nearby shop!!! Only after an hour conversation did someone eventually "find" some toilet roll! How many people does it take to change a toilet roll - O just 1 but 5 will sit at reception!

stayed here a few nights as part of a tour. Its convieniently located a very short distance from the train station, you can walk to it in less than 5 minutes..

the hotel is quite nice, great restaurant, internet service, the rooms were nice and comfortable, warm showers, and a short tuk tuk ride away from the night market.

i really enjoyed this hotel.

Hotel Oasis is a relatively small hotel which means that they can offer personal attention to their guests. My friend fractured her knee while in Chiang Mai, which meant that we needed approval from the insurance company in order to fly home early. The staff at the Oasis assisted me for three days with fax, telephone, and email communication with insurance company. There were always several friendly staff persons going out of their way to make our stay more pleasant. I ate all meals at the hotel and was delighted with the quality of the "cooked to order" meals. The Assistant Manager allowed me to upgrade to a suite since I spent so many hours at the hotel. My rooms were bright, cheery, and clean. There was a large staff who worked constantly to keep the hotel spotless.

At times, I sat out in the garden by the swimming pool. It was too cool to take a swim...but, the pool looked very inviting.

This hotel is across the street from the RailRoad station. Very convenient for anyone traveling by train. Rather than walk to the Old City and the Night Market, most people take a short, inexpensive cab ride. The cab ride from hotel to airport was under $5 US.

I definitely will return to the Hotel Oasis on my next trip to Chiang Mai.

  • Liked — The wonderful staff and cleanliness of hotel.
