We stayed there during the Thai New Year "Song Gran". It was fun during hot and sunny days. People would throw water to each other, anybody walked by would get wet. Even we were in a taxi "TukTuk" that open on the sides. Nobody would be angry, it was an acceptable occasion. It's Thai culture that the whole country celebrates every year.

The hotel was very nice and clean, staff were vey helpful, they served fruit punch when we checked in, it was refreshing. They made us feel so special, they waited to open entrance doors for us every time we go in and out. They were very polite whereever we were in the hotel area; bar, restaurant and pool. It is a nice size pool, very big. It was a lap pool.

We stayed in a room that has Ping River and pool view, it's very gorgeous, there was a small deck, but didn't feel small, It was cozy with a nice sofa & pillows. It was very inviting. Bathroom has a waterfall. It is different.

We used our taxi driver from the day he dropped us off at the hotel. We went to Doi Intanoon and Doi Suthep, it took us all day. Doi Intanoon is not in the city, it took us a couple hours by car. But it was worth it. We used local taxi, not from the hotel. It was a bit more from the hotel. We just walked out infront of the hotel. There would be taxi come by or they waited out there.

We really enjoy our stayed there, we would go back.

We stayed at Rati Lanna from 8-10 September and we had a Deluxe Suite connecting with a Deluxe Room. It was the best. The room is so beautifully decorated, it is amazing...especially the swing in the Deluxe Suite. We have travelled so much and never had a hotel that had a swing in the room balcony. It was a very simple but yet a very unique touch. It made us feel young again..thinking about the days when we were young..carefree with no problems. My husband is so moved by this experience that he wants to buy a swing for our home balcony now...ha ha. Very peaceful and loving environment. The alms giving to the monk in the morning by the hotel riverside is a very very meaningful event which has left a deep impression on our family. We came out of this hotel stay with a very deep emotional peace. The first night even though the hotel restaurant was ready to close for the night, they were so kind to accomodate us for coffee and dessert. They went out of their way. The hotel also arranged flowers and cake as a beautiful surprise for our 13th wedding anniversary. It was a very sweet and touching surprise. The spa was excellent. The staff are so attentive, courteous and ever smiling. We will definitely go back again. Thank you for an amazing holiday.

The Ratilana was a wonderful surprise - amazing rooms, wonderful breakfast and great service. The staff remembered us at breakfast even after we checked out and came back several days later. Everyone was smiling and helpful but the main thing is the rooms - what beautiful decor and great furnishings. A definite gem.

Would have liked to have shared this review sooner but in the course of planning our next trip I have to say this was the memorable one so I though better late than never. We upgraded to one of the suites that had its own outdoor area with a large spa - the best decision we made. The hotel served us our b/fast daily in the suite either inside or outside and it made things even more relaxed for us. I really cannot commend the staff more - all outstanding especially front desk team and the ladies that helped with babysitting for us. We hope to return soon.

This a nice hotel, great rooms and with a nice layout. However, it is pretty big and therefore rather impersonal. You can have a great sleep, but it lacks character in the way that it is a 'hotel'hotel and the way they decorated is a bit phony or over the top.
Also the pool is great and the location is pretty close to the centre.
Watch it for their extra services, especially those coming from their tourist-desk. Theeir prices are double or triple the prices you normally pay (from renting a motorcycle, taxi's to day tours). When informing the reception-desk about this they understand, but could not do anything about, other than whispering in my ear how to arrange things outside of the hotel. So not exactly a great partnership which gives a rather dumb impression. One should not be hassling with the hotel but being felt as if at home. At least that is my opinion.

This is a well appointed, well maintained and luxury hotel. Rooms are fantastic; very large and comfortable. Bathroom is a dream ; with waterfall behind window and television.
The service is impeccable, staff is always happy and ready to fulfil every wish.
Breakfast is delicious. Perfectly relaxing to sit beside the pool which is beside the river and have your lunch and drinks brought to your bed at very reasonable prices.

We stayed at Ratilanna for 5 nites in May this year. After checking lots of hotels on the net and Tripadvisor we went for Ratilanna based on value for money, extremely high standard of accommodation and location. Although the hotel is not a short walk to the market, the fact you are outside the hustle and bustle is a huge bonus that you can only really appreciate once you are there. The staff cannot do enough to assist you in every way and our room rate included free wifi which was a big plus. The day spa was lovely and not expensive compared to Aussie prices. The breakfast is amazing with a very large variety of food. The hotel has a fantastic pool with swim up bar, great spot to enjoy a drink after a long day of sight seeing or shopping. We were upgraded to a Deluxe Suite that had a huge lounge room & 3 plasma tvs and we would definitely recommend opting for the suite if your budget allows.

Positives :
Wonderful friendly staff at every turn
Perfectly clean and presented rooms
Fantastic food
Location - if you dont want to be crawling on top of other travellers
Lanna style hotel, not your giant concrete monstrosity

Negatives:
We had to leave :(
Seriously this hotel is great you wont be disappointed if you stay here.
