“Good option in CR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This hotel is nicely appointed. Rooms are clean and the food is quite good. Location is very convenient too. I walked in during shoulder season and received a hefty discount over the advertised rate. I may have given this property the highest rating (keeping in mind I'm comparing to other CR properties) if the staff had been more approachable or helpful. An excellent option for CR.

The hotel clearly gets a lot of group tours in and the staff were surprisingly poorly equipped to handle the usual check in/check out procedures. Both were frought with confusion.

The rooms are ok, clean and dated. There is no security safe. The pool is in the middle of an expanse of cement with a nice piece of garden at the back.

We stayed one night and it served out purposes but it is not the kind of place you would linger for longer. Nevertheless, is is reasonable value for the rate they charge.

We needed a city hotel for the evening before our boat trip down the Mekong, and the Wiang Inn fitted the bill. It is not going to win any awards, but it was comfortable and the service was pretty good. Rooms are large and beds are very comfortable. I was really impressed with breakfast - doors opened at 6 am and people piled in! Everything was cooked and ready to go -well organized for such an early start. I am not sure I would want to stay here for more than a night or two, but if you want easy access to the night market and city attractions, the Wiang Inn is not a bad place to rest your head.

This hotel looks good on internet but grubby and old in reality. Although the price was not bad 2000 baht for a twin room think there must be better hotels. When we were shown to our room it was clear from all the hair on the carpet and in the bathroom that it hadn't been cleaned well so after a word with house keeping they re vacuumed it again but not well. Internet only in the seats in the entrance. Cocktails mega money don't bother. Good points close to night bazaar which was good. Pleasant enough staff. Breakfast was horrid first morning big free for all buffet which was busy - to be fair the hotel tried its best here . Second morning felt cleaner with less people. Stayed 2 nights but wouldn't return we opted to stop at their sister hotel Dusit Island hotel and although lot more money at 3400 baht it was worth it.

If u want 2 b in center of town, this hotel is perfectly located, reception nice, staff courteous, but breakfast not oso good and rooms looking a bit old fashioned, needs makeover. Lots of restaurants within 200 yards which is perfect and night bazaar same.

Room Tip: Check the view before settling in

I was reluctant to book here because of the rather ugly exterior of this hotel. But once inside the picture is one rather of opulence. Very swish interior, enormous rooms, huge beds, good bathrooms, nice room furnishings, a selection of bars and restaurants you may wish to avoid and a karaoke you will most likely wish to avoid. But value for money this is the ticket. And it is only minutes walk from the Green bus terminal if you are travelling by bus from Chiang Mai. In Europe this would be a €200 - 300 per night. Also there is a full size pool and a large buffet breakfast. The hotel is on the 'main' street of Chiang Rai and is only 5 minutes walk from the night market and night food markets - where you will want to eat!

Room Tip: The pool view rooms would probably be more attractive but perhaps they cost more. But all rooms are...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Wiang Inn for 2 nights in November. The lobby was very luxurious and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the rooms weren't so luxurious as the lobby and could do with a revamp and some modernising especially the bathroom. Despite this the room itself was very comfortable and safe, especially the large double bed. Although the room does not have a safe, safety deposit boxes are provided free of charge at the reception desk which were really useful. We used the hotel tour company which were really good and provided us with a private tour of the Golden Triangle and white temple. Breakfast was very good and so was the a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. The hotel is very well located with many restaurants nearby and is very close to the night market. Having said this, if your aim is to visit the Golden Triangle and not hill tribe trekking, we would recommend you stay in Chiang Mai and visit on a day trip as Chiang Rai itself does not have much to offer. Overall this hotel is extremely good value for money.
