The Pornping Tower must have been the "State of the Art" during its time maybe in the eighties with 23 floors, it is still very tall by Chiangmai standards. Sadly though it is obvious that it has seen better days. The rooms reflect that but is still clean enough and the amenities still work. Unlike other similar properties that I have stayed, they have thankfully two English channels on TV, namely BBC and National Geographic that you can watch before going to sleep.But at around USD 40.00 including b/fast, it is a steal. Located in downtown Chiangmai close to the night markets and the newer fancier 5 Star properties that have come up since, it is ideally located and adds to its value.
Breakfast is pretty good though it tends to be more suited for locals and has a Thai/Chinese orientation with Congees and the like. But at USD 6.00 for adults and USD 4.00 for children if not included in your room tariff, it provides value for money. Seems like it is catering to the domestic market now.
The Hotel now a bit run down still seems to be going strong and was quite full unlike the really rundown joints that are empty and have that really sour and dour feel. It also seems to have lively night club that seems to be the happening place around especially during weekend. It is good place for a few nights for people on business but definitely not recommended for a family holiday.

Room tip: I stayed in a room facing the entrance which provided a good view of the goings on in the front which was open and not all together unpleasant. I would suspect that the views from rooms at the back may not be as pleasant. and would be looking into side sois. Please be warned that you have to put up with pigeons that have taken up residence in the window ledges due to the creepers that have over the years grown quite thick and long.

We stayed here with 6 other friends who all had the same opinion as us.

The hotel is in a great location. Just behind the Night Bazzar and main street.

Maybe in the 1980's the hotel was happening but now its very old. For $12USD a night maybe we shouldnt complain.

The rooms are quite old but were very clean.

We had dinner one night on the roof, however the staff seemed more interested in what was on the giant screen then looking after all of us.

The breakfast was ok. Had an egg station which was great.

The pool was ok, a bit run down but it served its purpose.

The biggest issue we had was when we asked what an airport taxi would cost back to the airport. Every person at the desk who wanted to book it for us continually gave us different amounts. In some cases 3-4 times what the other staff member said. It was all very suss.....

We eventually just booked it online and they turned up for half the price of the cheapest person behind reception had said.

For 12USD a night i'd probably stay there again.

Overall this place is pretty average. It's not too dirty, the rooms are sufficiently air conditioned, it gets the job done. The breakfast is outragously expensive though.

Previously 4-5 star hotel which has not got a refurbishment for a few years, but despite the 'older' look, very good price quality. Very clean, nice beds and friendly staff. Location is excellent, just few minutes from the night bazaar. Little bit further from the old city centre but not a problem for day tours or whatsoever.

Having stayed at the PornPing a few times as part of an annual group event and having read some of the other reviews, I have to say that the price/value is not that bad. Yes - the hotel is very, very dated and the towels are quite thin but it is in the heart of the Night Market, the staff are really nice and accommodating and they do not sell themselves at a very high rate. And the hot water pressure and amount is incredible. I did a mahout as a day experience in the jungle with the elephants and after a rainshower in the jungle and bathing with the elephants, an EXTREMELY long and hot shower awaited me at the PornPing. Now they have free wifi in the room!

Room tip: Request a room on a lower floor to insure strong wifi connection and strong water pressure.
