This is one of the best hotels I have stayed worldwide. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is great if you have your own vehicle. It is situated by the River Ping over looking pagodas and ruins of a historical city. The sunrise and sunset is most amazing. The interior is superb, making you feel like you are in a Middle East country (except the air-conditioners that dont seem to match with the building). Tyhe hotel restaurant is great for breakfast and dinner (the portion is rather big). The afternoon drink there is relaxing. It is aperfect hideaway indeed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sheik Istana is ideally situated on the Ping River, the main river that runs through the city, in one of the most beautiful locations in Chiang Mai. All attraction areas are all within easy reach. The design of the 35 luxuriously appointed guest rooms was inspired by Moroccan and Asian architecture, making the hotel ideally suited for a romantic getaway or honeymoon; its convenient location and beautiful, cosy and elegant atmosphere will however equally appeal to business people. Relax and take in the stunning views of Wat Chedi Lium, one of the ancient temples in Wiang Kum Kam,from your guestroom terrace and have yourself pampered by our friendly and professional staff. ... more less
