Royal Lanna Hotel
Ranked #255 of 392 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed February 22, 2006

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Lanna for 3 nights. The location is great (right across the street from the Night Bazaar, and close to many restaurants.) We had a nice view of the mountain from our room, however there was construction going on nearby, and we could hear the noises of the machinery until late night. It didn't bother us too bad. You would likely have this problem with any hotel near the Night Bazaar.

The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and had nice sheets. There were nice towels in the bathroom too. Only problem was that there was barely ever any hot water. Most of the time we took cold showers, any hot water we got was very sporadic. The hotel staff did mention something about running the water at low pressure to get hot water, but we couldn't get that to work either.

As soon as you step out of the hotel, be prepared for all the taxi and tuk tuk drivers offering to take you on tours of Chiang Mai. There are many taxis arounds, so you can always check prices and compare with the taxis around the corner from the hotel.

We used the tour agent on the first floor of our hotel to book our tour to the elephant training park, bamboo rafting down the river, and trip to the flower garden. It was a full-day tour, and included an excellent lunch buffet at a resort near the elephant park.

The breakfast buffet was decent. The restaurant had a selection of both Thai and Western foods.

We booked our stay on asiarooms.com, which was the cheapest deal. Good hotel for the price. Just don't expect to get hot water.

When checking in staff refused a safe box on the rationale that my room door had a hasp, and my own lock was sufficient.

My room was subsequently burglarized, with a sizable padlock being broken and cash stolen. Hotel security claimed to be unaware of any noise or activity on my floor (burglary occurred in early evening).

I believe some hotel staff to be complicit. No way would I return to the Royal Lanna.

We chose this hotel for its location near the night bazaar. This hotel is ACROSS THE STREET from the night bazaar. It is very convenient. You're in the middle of all the action. The staff is very accommodating, friendly, and warm. The breakfast was good: pancakes/french toast, omelettes/eggs made to order, ham, sausage, toast, cereal, two juices, milk, coffee, tea, cocoa powder (for cereal or coffee?), as well as Thai dishes such as rice soup, phad thai noodles, pork, and stir-fried vegetables. My husband liked the selection. We would definitely stay here again. Shopping and restaurants all around you. Five minute walk to Anusarn market as well. Can't go wrong for the price. Paid about $22/night and that included airport pickup. Also, I liked the view of Doi Suthep mountain from the room. We stayed at the Suriwongse Hotel the last time we were in Chiang Mai. Suriwongse Hotel is another fine hotel ACROSS THE STREET from the night bazaar. It, too, had a good breakfast, but Royal Lanna has a much better view. It is a highrise hotel whereas Suriwongse is no more than 4 stories or so.
