We stayed at the Ping Nakara based on other traveler reviews. Location is very central with walking distance to the Night Bazaar. Our room was gorgeous with lots of character and generously supplied with quality toiletries. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious.

Well maintained and well equipped rooms, including complimentary mini bar. However the service at this hotel is the star of the show. It is very hard today to find genuine service however everyone I came across at Ping Nakara made you feel like nothing would be too much trouble and nothing was too difficult for them to help you with,...

We stayed 9 nights at Ping Nakara during August 2016. Sort of old style colonial as you will see from some the pictures on their website. They have 3 old Mercedes outside which are not just for decoration, they are actually used. When we left to go to the airport, they used one to drop us off. A quaint ride!... More

I cannot recommend Ping Nakara highly enough. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, and situated in an extremely convenient location -- not far from the night market, and a short tuk tuk away from the main Old City area. The staff is incredibly attentive and friendly, and our stay was completely smooth. Highly recommend.
