We stayed at the hotel from 15th Dec till 19th Dec. It was really an amazing experience. Right from the time we were received by the hotel staff till the time we were dropped at the airport every moment we were made to feel special.
The rooms were very good and spacious and the central location of the hotel was an added bonus. The Wifi was free and the staff was very friendly and courteous.But the real "WOW" moments were being given flowers and choclates every night during our stay!!!
The only improvement that I wish to recommend is the breakfast. Even though the spread was huge and covered a variety of items, but it was absolutely same everyday during our stay. Wish you guys can improvise and change the contents of the menu for the breakfast on a regular basis to add variety! :P

This Hotel is filled with a lot of foreign tourists, it has a nice pool. The food is good, at least the breakfast buffet. The location is ok, within 10 minutes walking distance one is at the Night Market.
Wifi is now available, but it is very expensive. Especially considering that just 20 m from the entrance there is a lovely coffee shop with excellent (ice)coffee which offers Wifi free of charge.

I can only imagine that the warm welcoming staff referred to by other reviewers, were not working the day I arrived. Staff I spoke to were surly and not at all like I had experienced in other hotels throughout Thailand from 3*to 5*. This was also the only hotel I stayed at that charged for wifi. There were people in the bar that evening who were clearly repeat guests so the hotel must be right for some people but it somehow did not feel Thai. It was almost trying not to be. Door staff did not bother to open doors when you approached. Staff at front desk were particularly rude. The cocktails in the bar were good and the breakfast a good quality. But overall, an underwhelming experience. Not likely to return as other hotels in the area are far nicer.

We stayed at the Empress during our honeymoon in Thailand. The location of the hotel is great, very central and close to main spots like night bazaar, old city and river Ping. Although we were upgraded to a executive room, it looked extremely basic and we had a view of a swamp. It's a great hotel to stay in but don't pay over the odds. Breakfast was lovely. Disappointed that they didn't offer free wifi. And they have a live band playing in the bar in the evenings who are just so cute.

I stayed at The Empress in February 2013. And I was very 'Empressed' by the warm welcome, the beautiful decor and the little surprises they kept giving us.The reception area is large and spacious with a beautiful centrepiece of roses. My room was very large,beautifuly decorated with crisp white linnen and was spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and couldnt do enough for you.
The food was Buffet Style, except for the evening when it was the eve of Chinese New Year when they served us with a very secial starter beautifully presented on a large decorative plate, the main course we then chose ourselves. We were then served a gorgeous sweet course...again on a decorated plate (best china?) and as we left all of the ladies were given a rose. Nice touch.
The evening before, when we were enjoying a drink in the lounge/bar we were given chocolate bars and roses and on our final night were all given an elephant key ring. How generous.
I would definitely stay there again , I wouldnt bother going anywhere else.

Room Tip: From what I heard from other people in our group..all the rooms were great.
