The Imperial Mae Ping Hotel
Ranked #68 of 392 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Stayed here for two weeks for work purposes. The building is abit old and the amenities in the rooms are very basic. but yet its clean and the beds are good for me. If you were planning to stay here, get a high floor and ask for the mountain view room. the view is awesome.

There is a history in this hotel that i find quite morbid. A famous Taiwanese singer, Teresa Teng died in this hotel.. Was told it was on the 15th floor. so you know what to avoid. hahaha. Apparently, it was made as an attraction for those who followed tour agent!! Dang!!!

Room Tip: high floors and mountain view

Dear Effendy
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to post here on Trip Advisor! We appreciate your comments about our hotel. Allow us to correct your comment about the famous singer. Ms Teresa Teng did NOT die in our hotel, she stayed with us before her unfortunate passing away in a Chiang Mai Hospital. Kind regards from The Imperial Mae Ping Team/ Peter Schnyder General Manager

The hotel is well located, short walk away from Chiang Mai night bazaar and 15 minute drive to the airport. Hotel is mostly clean (rooms a little bit less than lobby), and there are mosquitoes in the lobby area and lobby bathroom. Food is great and offers variety. Elevators are quite small. Good free wifi and Internet connection in rooms. Staff is very nice.

We stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is dated and the customer service is not as good as in other hotels i have stayed in Thailand. The rooms are clean and the shower is very good. However, if you want a hotel in a good location then this is perfect. Dont bother booking for breakfast as plenty of places to go near by which offer healthy and cheap options and good atmosphere (Dada Kafe, Corner Cafe.)

Would recommend Love @ First Bite for cakes (not open on Mondays). Sunday market (for shopping and food). Dada Kafe for breakfast/lunch.

Thai cookschool - BaanThai cookery school - (it walking distance from hotel or they will pick you up) - make sure you negotiate the price.

Rainforest adventure - we used Jungle Flight and booked it via the hotel. We managed to get some money taken off the published price. Its well run and professional and safe!

Taxi cost 120 BH from airport and is 15 minutes. Suggest that you go to the TAXI desk at the hotel if booking a return taxi to airport as this was cheaper that using the reception staff at the hotel!!

Towels are provided - and there are two pools to choose from.
Also look out for the Red Taxi Vans ... they are a cheap way of getting around - its a shared taxi.

I stayed here for 2 nights. Location is great to get to markets and night bizarre. Breakfast good, pools ok, could do
With more sunless. Had an amazing facial in the spa. Rooms a bit dated and the thing that really let's the place down is the non interested non existent service at reception.

The hotel is located ideally close to the night markets. I have only positive things to say about this hotel BUT undoubtedly the biggest praise goes to the Head Chef Stefan who made our stay so memorable. Stefan is originally from Germany but now lives in Chiang Mai, but most importantly he speaks the the Thai language fluently. No problem was too big for him to solve and always with a smile on his face. The local people are extremely friendly but at times the language can become a barrier. Enjoy your stay at the Imperial Mae Ping hotel and don't forget to say hello to Stefan from me (The chocolate cake eating Football Swede!!!!)
