“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

The hotel is well situated on Chang Klan road, at the heart of the Night market. It is accessible to many of the food establishments (thai and american fast foods.) It is also quite near the moated city, which affords easy access.
It seems, however, that the hotel had seen better days. It is towered over by Le Meridien and other hotels nearby. Hotel service was good, with rooms well kept and exceptional breakfast. There is no free Wi-Fi in the room, which I found odd since many of the smaller B&B's around the area seem to offer free Wi-Fi to the guest. Quite odd for a hotel belonging to the Dusit group.

Offers comfortable rooms and is well placed for restaurants and bazaars but the hotel lacks atmosphere and the piped carols in reception over Christmas were terrible!

If you are looking for a hotel right in the action, Royal Princess certainly fits the bill. Unfortunately, my stomach began to sink when we pulled up--it looks seedy from the outside, and the while it has clearly been renovated sometime in recent years, it doesn't feel much better from the inside.

Our room was fine--the air conditioning worked incredibly well. The bathroom was dated and dingy. It desperately needed a deep clean and a renovation.

The breakfast was good each morning, with Western, Thai, and Chinese options.

The concierge/tour desk was completely unhelpful; they did not speak English well enough to help us with the problem we were having. Luckily, we dealt with it on our own. Also, you need mosquito repellent for the lobby itself.

The one bright spot of this hotel is the pool, which is this sweet hidden quiet oasis.

I stayed 3 nights. We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel upgraded us from a superior room to a junior suite. Little did we know that the room window faces a solid wall ; a junior suite with NO view. Since we were staying there for only 3 nights and reckoned that we'll be out most of the time, we took the room. The hotel could do with some renovation. The furnishings are a little dated and old. The bathtub leaked and we need to put a towel to prevent a wet bathcoom. This was made up by the friendly staff, superb service and great location. All in all, we had a great stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants easy access to the night bazaar and food outlets. Just remember to check out the room first and ask for a room with a view.

We stayed at the Royal Princess Chiang Mai for 3 nights. We were very happy with it. The hotel is a bit old, but has been recently renovated.. The room is a good size, had been repainted and recarpeted, with very good air-con. The bathroom is a bit old and dated, but very clean. The buffet breakfast is great, with good variety. The staff are friendly. The location is excellent, very very close to the Night Bazaar. Right opposite the hotel is a very good open air night market, which has a lot of restaurants and selling all kinds of local handmades and souvenirs. Definitely stay there again.
