“Oke hotel. Strong Wifi!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The hotel is dated, but it has a good swimmingpool, it's on a good location by the nightmarket. Just in the sidestreet so its quiet but convenienty close to the shops.
The hotel ( that was the reason I choose it) has a strong wifi.
Most guest are chinese (but it seems most of the tourists are nowdays)
Its not the best hotel ever but it does the job for a reasonable price!

The hotel is clean and quiet with comfortable beds n shower. We stayed for 3 nights and are out most of the time. The available plug point at the dressing table is block by the bulky mirror and difficult to use the adapter and we can only use the next electrical plug point from the toilet. There is one more plug point and this is for the bulky TV. There are slippers for us to use and please do not dispose it, they recycle! They served breakfast at 6am. The surrounding of the garden and pool is serene and beautiful, try not to miss this. Wifi is available per person per password! This is a good basic hotel in the city away from the noise. The hotel is near to all the day n night markets thus shopping is easy. Look for the wholesalers in the day market, it is worth walking, bargaining and buying!
They are a lot of decent foot massage parlors near the hotel and It is cheap at 200 baht for 90 mins. A good Foot massage include the shoulder n spine!

Room Tip: Higher floor so that you can have a better view of Chiangmai.

The other people writting reviews have got it correct. This is a good location - I have stayed here 6 times. Good if you rent a car, tour or walk.

The hotel is quite basic but very clean and comfortable. it is NOT a hotel you want to spend hours and hours in sitting by the pool.

I will return again if I am back in CM and look forwards to the same level of comfort.

Stayed here with my wife, on our visit to Chiang Mai. Grand structure, and can be viewed from a distance. The hotel looks like it must have been the best in Chiang Mai some years ago. Its an olden style hotel. Some top diplomats from Lao and Pakistan were staying there when we were there.
Nevertheless it meets all basic needs and functions one requires. The rooms were decent and clean enough. They have 2 pools, where you can unwind in the evening. The breakfast is very good, with a large spread.
The beauty is the location. Very close to the Bazaars and everything like 7/11's, pharmacies etc, are within 5 minute walking distance.
The service is pretty good, but the staff doesn't smile too much, but never the less, they are very helpful.
The Wifi is super, and I used Skype and Viber extensively from my hotel room.
The view from some of the rooms, is pretty neat, with mountains in far sight.
I would recommend this hotel to people who need clean, neat and basic accommodation in Chiang Mai, with all amenities, at a decent price.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a mountain view. They are at the backside of the hotel.

I have been a guest at Mae Ping hotel almost since the opening in the 80´s. I have considered the Mae Ping hotel as my home while in Chiangmai. After an absence of 9 years I was really looking forward to visit the hotel again. But this time I was really disappointed. I can truely say that, as far as I can see, no significant improvement have been done in the hotel for all these years! It really looks worn out, and run down, and this includs the furniture, the carpent, and many other items. Even the breakfastroom is just the same as ten years ago, and the pot serving coffee must be from 2. World War!!
The people working at Mae Ping is friendsly, as always, and they are not included in my complains. But unless you want to lose guests like me, I think the management or the owner should do something to keep Mae Ping among the great places in Chiangmai.

Dear Drammen
Thank you for your time to post here on Trip Advisor and for your recent stay here with us in Chiang Mai. Your comments are very much appreciated and noted. It is not the truth the hotel has not done any improvement over the last 9 years. Much has been invested in Fire Life and Safety and other significant areas such as energy saving. In all our outlets the carpets have been changed and further improvements are in the pipeline. We do hope to have a chance to welcoming you back in the near future and please do contact the undersigned.

Hotel has great potential but is very outdated and never felt clean. Hotel staff indifferent.
Good location in Chiang Mai, close to restaurants and Night Bazaar. This was the only hotel in Thailand where English was a problem.

Highly recommend this hotel. They have the best location, right next to the night market. The service was very nice and the staff was friendly.
Breakfast, has a lot of selection. The Chinese restaurant they have was very good as well.
