My friend and I spent 2 nights at Raming Lodge in April and had a good experience. The well-maintained older hotel is centrally located near Tha Pae Gate and offers great value. We booked a deluxe room including breakfast, spa credit, and free transport to/from the train station/airport for a nominal extra cost over the superior room rate.
Front desk staff was courteous. The deluxe room had no view but we did like being on a higher floor; the bathroom had a quirky opening into the main room that never ceased to entertain me. The breakfast buffet was mediocre, but it worked in a pinch. The pool, which is located across the alley from the hotel building, is okay. However, my friend suspects it wasn't chlorinated, which caused her a minor skin problem later on.
Communication with the hotel was not very good, so we weren't sure if a shuttle would pick us up at the train station; we ended up hiring a tuk-tuk. However, we had no trouble storing our luggage for the day and then taking an evening trip to the airport on our way out of town.
We used our spa credit for massages, and they were just okay. The business across the street offers superior massages for a fraction of the cost. At least the spa itself is relaxing.
Overall, Raming Lodge offers outstanding value and we would consider staying there again.
