This was our second stay at the Legend. The quality room we had was as good as last stay. Big comfortable bed, enormous shower room and bathroom/ storage area, and peaceful and quiet. Staff and service excellent, breakfast was also very good. The omeletes were so big we had to share one. It has a new Italian restaurant and wine... More

This was my second stay at this great riverside resort. It's one of the "grand old ladies " of Chiang Rai and perfectly located on the banks of the Kok River. Take the shuttle into town to try the local food and don't miss the stunning golden clock tower. The GM Khun Makoo is everywhere, you see him when you... More

This hotel is ideal: Just 5 min away by car from the center and yet so quiet. The rooms are big and cozy, the pool fresh and by the river and the restaurant offers good options. A big plus the Italian Restaurant on site... The service is perfect: fast and friendly. Overall an excellent value for money..

The resort set in the great location, on riverbank within Chiang Rai city. It is easy access to walking street, temples, local shops or opposite side cafe. The architect is simple, nothing special but beautiful with Thai's northern design influent. Low rise building either one or two floors. The itself is large & pretty functional.

Nice location, close to the city center and overlooking the river. Very quiet. The rooms (the one bedroom pool villa) was nice and large, the pool was relatively small but the terrace was big and the views from the room nice.

A very good place, near the river with autenthic Lana architecture. Professionnal service, great breakfast buffet. Near the center, you will enjoy and relax at the swimming pool. A plus point for the bathroom, big place. Wi-fi, shuttle to night market. Quality wine and nice Italian restaurant or Thai Buffet, you will enjoy for business or vacancy trip.
