“An OK stay, but there are better choices”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

The Wangburapa is in a fairly good location on the Thapae Gate sid of the moat inside the old city. It is within short walking distance to the Sunday market, the night bazaar and a good array of restaurants. The pool is nice and gets sun most of the day and pools at hotels in the old city are not common so this is a nice addition.

The hotel was clean, but the service left some room for improvement. While the room price was reasonable they wanted to charge for everything else - sometimes without letting you know in advance. We asked for some extra pillows one night and then were told the next day that we were going to be charged for each extra pillow - the amount they wanted to charge was about 15% of what we paid for the whole room - per pillow!!

The breakfast was average, with not a lot of choices for hot dishes, and the fruit and other items should have been covered to keep the bugs at bay.

Overall the hotel was 'average', but there are plenty of choices within a few blocks that are much better overall value in my opinion.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the back of the hotel as the street noise and sounds from a couple of pubs...

Right on the moat road and close to everything. The Wangburapa is an good hotel. We have stayed in many places in asia, and this place was above average. Nice rooms, (although the mattress is not good even for asia standards) the staff was awesome!!! Customer service is more important to us than almost anything. And this place had EXCELLENT CS. Has a pool although we didnt us it. I would recommend this hotel.

Great location, small pool was fantastic for cooling relief from the very hot weather!
Adjoining rooms terrific for our family of four.
Cheap laundry service.
We utilized 'Queen Bee' tourist services located a short walk down the road...very helpful and efficient!
Breakfast average...didn't change for the 5 days we were there.
All in all, a terrific stay...although most definitely the hardest beds in all of Thailand!!

Nice and clean hotel, breakfast is average level or more. I guess Asians will be fine with the breakfast. Coffee is good. The location of the hotel is inside of old town of Chiang Mai so it is easy to visit the momuments in town on foot. Night bazar is also close.
However, the phone in the room is not working for the outside of hotel. if you want to call out of hotel, you need to come down and ask a phone from the front desk, which was real fun!
Next to this hotel, there is night club which is the most famous in Chiang Mai. It is a bit noisy until 11:00 pm or more.

Room Tip: there is outdoor pool

The hotel is well located to the circular river so every taxi driver knows it at anywhere you thumb one. It may be reason why the old western gents like here esp accompanied by local street girls. The hotel has a swimming pool, surprise, but the shower doesn't work well as the water temp runs unsteady from time to time. Also pls have patience in the receptionists who usually can't communicate in english ideally.

Room Tip: Do book online since the door to door booking is a little more expensive

Comfortable beds with adequate space in the room. The shower was lacking, in particular the curtain was short and water soaked the vanity area. The front desk staff did not communicate well in English which did lead to some minor problems. The buffet breakfast was served when the hotel was full and ala carte when there were fewer guests. Both breakfasts were good and we all found good choices. Free wifi and bottled water. The pool was clean and had a shower ajacent to the pool.
