I stayed at the Montri back in 1997 with several family and friends. It was truly amazing back then. I stayed again a few months ago, and sad to say, they have completely changed into some kind of overpriced boutique hotel. Staff not very friendly, but good wifi.

I have been staying at the Montri for 16 years and have never had a complaint. The bathrooms are very compact but very clean. The new renovations have commanded a new price which is at the high end of a budget hotel but it is still good value for the position and the price.

This is a popular older hotel with many return travelers, especially from Europe and the United. Pros: 1. The popular hotel restaurant has a health conscious menu. 2. Clean, reasonalbly priced upgraded rooms. 3. Near registration offices for Muay Thai boxing school and a Thai culinary academy. Cons: 1. No heater in the rooms. 2. The taxi drivers need to... More

This mid budget property has been a mainstay of my family since my brother discovered it back in '89. The location is perfect, right in front of the gate, and abuts the old brick wall surrounding the old city. Plenty of shopping and restaurants surround the place, and the price is right. I highly recommend this no frills hotel for... More

Although I like to stay in Hotels with a pool, the Montri is a great play inside the moat of Chiang Mai giving access to all city attractions, with clean rooms and a freshly renovated look and reasonably priced it makes the ideal place to stay in Chiang Mai

I stopped in Ching Mai on the way to Mae Hong.

Slightly pricier than comparable hotels in the moat, but the location can't be beat. It overlooks the TaePae gate / night market, as well as the Sunday market. You're within walking distance of a large chunk of touristy Chiang Mai. The hotel itself is comfortable enough, with free wifi, amenities, a flatscreen TV, hot water, and A/C. It's neat, well...

I got a room at the Montri for 2,400 baht for three nights as a special low-season promotion. You get what you pay for in life and there are certainly far better hotels in Chiang Mai than the Montri, but at 800 baht a night, it still represents very good value for money. I stayed here four years ago and... More
