Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 12, 2013

If you travel to Chiang Mai this hotel is a must. It provides every bit of comfort for your journey and the service is excellent! The quality service is the foremost memory i take away from my stay at Rimping Village. Its a nice quiet area but also close to town, particularly the night markets. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast is tasty and filling. Thankyou to all the staff there for making our stay pleasant and enjoyable.

After reading the reports of other TA travelers we booked 4 nights at Rimping Village and were happy we did!
Although this is not a 5 star resort, we found the personal service from the staff to be at 5 star level! The word "no" was not in their vocabulary and they went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.
The included breakfast each morning was very good and we enjoyed having coffee outside on the patio by the beautiful large tree!
We will book this hotel again on our next visit to Chiang Mai!

Rimping village is in a great location, close to the night markets, cafés and restaurants, but removed enough to be quiet at night. The staff are wonderful, the rooms are just great. Breakfast is outstanding, what more can we say? Rimping is rated highly on trip advisor and deserves it. We will stay here again and again.

We were picked up at the airport in a luxury Mercedes Van and taken to the hotel where we were warmly welcomed with smiling faces, cool drinks and face cloths.
Our room was quite large and the bed provided a very solid nights rest. The breakfasts are plentiful. You can get unlimited amounts of everything you like from cereal to juice to eggs to pad Thai to French toast. The breakfast is a great time to stock up for the day.
But above the nice room and great breakfasts are all of the staff. Each one went out of their way to help or make valuable suggestions. One day we hired a songtheaw and the desk called to see how everything was going and if we would be at our destinations before closing time. That is something I have never experienced in any of our world travels.
Our hats go off to Rimping village staff for friendliness, efficient service, valuable advice, care and concern and above all else, their kind and positive attitudes.
We would definitely return here and highly recommend this property to others. It is worth a 5 star if only for the tranquility and hospitable surroundings in the middle of a bustling city.

We spent 3 nights at this little hotel. At first we thought it was pretty modest and we figured we might not be very satisfied. Were our initial impressions wrong.

First of all, the place is quite pretty and although set near a busy part of town, it was quite serene. Our room was small and a little dark, and we could have used a desk for work, but it was quiet and the bed was comfortable.

Breakfasts were included and they were very good. Each day the options changed but included fruit, juice, eggs, French toast, pancakes and an assortment of meats. My husband loved eating the sticky rice with mango while one morning, I enjoyed pad Thai! We were able to work out by the pool, which was very pleasant and comfortable.

But, the biggest surprise was the service orientation of the English speaking staff. Nothing was out of the question. Everyone always had a smile on their face. When my husband had a desire for Korean food, they did research and found us a true Korean restaurant in town! They asked about our various daily adventures. And when we said we would leave at 5:30 am for the airport, they suggested a wake up call at 5 am, and asked what they should pack for our breakfast! Other more expensive Thai hotels didn't even bother to unlock the doors so we could leave on our last morning!

This is a delightful little gem, and very reasonably priced. I may rethink my view of Thai service after this visit!

We were 3 couples on our 10 day trip to Thailand .
Rimping Village was suggested to us by our travel agent .Yes the Hotel is really good in terms of service, cleanliness etc., but the rooms are'nt really anything to rave about .Location wise it is not far from the night market.Its nearer to the river and there is a quiet place to relax alongside the river & the bridge (five minutes walk from the Hotel).
We also enjoyed the zipline which the staff at the Hotel guided us.It was indeed great fun & adventure.
All in all a quiet stay and this Hotel would surely be recommended for family & elderly people.

Our stay was very pleasant due to the never-ending efforts of the attentive staff. The grounds of the hotel are kept spotless. Our Superior room was clean, safe, and comfortable, but nothing special. The buffet breakfast was varied each day and we enjoyed eating on the outdoor patio having a nice view of the pool. Breakfast also included eggs made to order.

It was the staff's attention to their guest services which makes this hotel a stand-out. Whether they were flagging down a tuk-tuk and arranging the fare, transporting us to the airport in a timely manner in a luxury vehicle, or supplying guest towels for an outing to the elephant preserve, the hotel staff have their guests well-being in mind. Staff were well equipped to answer every question we had about the area attractions. While the room itself was very basic, I would recommend a stay at this hotel because of their high quality staff!
