“Pretty Decent Hotel in Chiang Mai”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were very helpful even though only 1 person can speak English fluently. Rooms are large and clean, spacious bathroom, big bed but kind of on the hard side, TV with some English channels, and free wifi. Location is a bit out of town, but 10 minutes walk to the closest 7-11 and some bars and restaurants. Tuk-tuk is around 80-100 Baht to the night market. Would recommend this hotel! Thank you.

We stayed at the Sakorn Residence for 4 nights. We only booked one night in advance and were dismayed to find that the hotel was booked out and we couldn't stay in our room for all 4 nights. We agreed to pay for the next room up, and it was arranged that we would move the next morning to the more expensive room. As we were heading out to dinner that night, the chap on the desk called out to us and told us that there had been a cancellation and he had wangled the rooms around so that we could stay in our room for the full 4 nights.... Now that's service.

The rooms are fantastic, clean and large. The only thing I can pick on is that the corridors have a large amount of echo for some reason, so you can hear a mouse fart from the other end of the corridor. Most people are also aware of this and stay quiet and be careful closing thier doors.... others however come back at 3am singing and being rowdy and slamming doors. One phone call to reception however brought up the night supervisor to quiet things down.... once again, great service.

The residence is a little out of town, so if you don't like walking in the heat and want to avoid Tuk Tuks, then find somewhere closer. We were happy to walk it to the edge of Chiang Mai, but in 30 degree heat, that was all we could manage.

30 degree heat takes me on to the swimming pool which is amazing, and the restaurant is right next to it serving hungry swimmers all day.

Breakfast was great, there was so much we couldn't eat everything we were served.

The reception staff were all extremely friendly and eager to help book tours, arrange transport etc.

I highly recommend this place and if I return to Chiang Mai, I know where I'll be staying.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the elevators.

Cannot recommend this place enough, by far the best hotel my wife and I found in this price range during our two months in Thailand. Fantastic value for money.

Rooms are large and very clean, with a small balcony, very good shower, lovely big bed, TV with some English film channels, and decent wifi.

Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Breakfast is excellent and plentiful.

Pool is not massive and very cold, but is again extremely clean and nice to relax around in the afternoon.

Gym has cardio machines only but these are decent quality.

Location is great, you are about a 30mimute walk from the walled city but it's an interesting walk and there are lots of good restaurants, bars and coffee shops along the river only two minutes away.

Do visit the lovely coffee shop on site, the cold Ovaltine is delicious.

The restaurant across the road is brilliant for a cheap lunch, and I'm talking really cheap 70bht for two people. Also Just to the right out of the hotel is a great little Indian restaurant.

The Healing Family Foundation is just round the corner and is also definitely worth visiting.

Apartment style living - large room, balcony, fridge, dishes (so you can bring home your own dinner from the night market). Very clean. Front desk staff extremely helpful and very good English. One high speed internet computer for free use at front desk. Printing done for free. Good wifi. Breakfast is self serve juice, coffee (Nescafe instant) and your choice of a western (eggs/bacon) or eastern (soup or rice/vegetables). Good but still left hungry most mornings. Nice pool. Nice gym. Nice coffee store and whimsical restaurant next door. A bit pricey for the area but good coffee/food.

Room Tip: I faced the back of the building which meant my balcony faced a retainer wall that had green plants...

Picked this at short notice and weren't disappointed. Thought we needed to be in the old town but glad we opted for this place as it was a few minutes walk from a few lovely riverside restaurants and bars. Room was massive with separate living room and adjoining kitchen. No view as it was at the rear of the block. Staff very friendly. Think the food facilities could do with improving but there was a great curry house next door in a garden setting. We found that if you want sun on the pool, best wait until after lunchtime. And if you stay in during the evening they have books and DVDs. About 25 mins walk to Tha Pae Gate.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view try the ones at the front as the rear ones just have a high wall full...

I will recommend Sakorn Residence if you accept a short transportation or walk to get to the middle of the action. The hotel is located a little out of the Old City area, but within reasonable walking distance (20-25 minutes from the city wall and somewhat shorter to the Night Bazar). The hotel may be reached from the airport by tuk-tuk for approx.. 120-140 Baht.
The residence appears relatively new and is well kept. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist at arrival, and all the staff were service-minded.
The reception is very basic.

My room faced the pool, and had a small balcony Facing northward, the balcony was not reached by the sun. The room was spacious and very clean, as the whole of the residence. The stone floor and concrete walls in the corridor made any sound easily carried, though it was disturbing during night.
Considered its location in a residential area, the traffic level in the morning was heavier than expected, which could wake up light sleepers.
WiFi was working well.

For breakfast the hotel offered a few basic prepared dishes to choose from. Though nothing special about it, I found it to fulfill its purpose.

The pool appeared clean, and was an attractive place to sit an relax in the afternoon (which was one of my reasons for choosing this hotel).

Overall pleasant stay. Very large spacious rooms, big bathrooms. We were asked to change rooms half way through stay from a double to a twin (fine by us as twins initially booked up), but it was a little inconvenient as we had to leave all our belongings in reception as the new room wasn't available until the afternoon. Quite good location, perfect as lantern festival was on when we were there so short walk to the river. Laundry not available in hotel. We had to take a 10-15min walk to the laundry they used, having an in house service would be better. Breakfast was ok, plenty to eat. Moderate range of trips available from hotel, however they have spelt their own name wrong in the front!!! Perhaps a little far from the gate of centre if u don't like walking, otherwise nice and close to some pleasant riverside bars and restaurants
