“Excellent service”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I only stayed in this hotel for 1 night and would have stayed longer if it hadn't been booked out. The staff were my favourite thing about this hotel as they were very helpful. The room was large and I appreciated the bath (even if the bathroom was older style). The pool area was nice. I enjoyed breakfast. The location is a little further away but still within walking distance of the old city.

I am sitting outside my room of the Rimping Village right now, relaxing on the terraced area where they have placed very comfortable chairs. It is raining, but I am comfortable and happy, looking out over the pool. I just had a delicious breakfast with excellent latte, fresh fruit, eggs made to order, and lots of other options. My room is huge, the internet has been fast and reliable, the staff accommodating. I am within easy distance to some great areas for walking around, including the night market and many delicious food options? Chiang Mai, as is true seemingly everywhere in Southeast Asia, has a zillion massage places, so I went to one recommended by the hotel where I got an hour long amazing foot massage for $8, and then later on that same day a 90 minute full body Thai massage.

The front desk made arrangements for me to have a tour yesterday, and they also have a fleet of bicycles to loan out to their guests... although, please take care because inexperienced riders may been intimidated by the crazy traffic patterns and bumpy road surfaces.

My only minor quibble was with my shower; only in the sense that the water pressure was so unpredictable here that showering becomes an adventure; shivering cold water that suddenly becomes scalding hot then goes cold again, all within the same minute. So, whatever...

This place is a true gem. 5 stars for sure.

I can't praise the staff and hotel highly enough. The hotel is excellent value, very clean and excellent food. We only ate once in the evening and the food was as good as the best restaurant . The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful and organised our taxis and day trips quickly and efficiently. If we return to Chiang Mai we would definitely return to Rimping village.

Room Tip: It's a small hotel in a quiet area so don't see a problem with room selection unless you pre...

very welcoming hotel on our arrival from UK . Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. excellent breakfast near the pool and rooms spacious with good sized bathroom . About 30 min walk from old town but great walking location near to the river for the night market and restaurants. Tut tuts to old city ( little happening at night in old town ) were cheap . would stay again

Loved the rustic look and friendly staff!! The hotel is nicely located, ideal for the many tours you can book in Chiang Mai and it is also walking distance to the town where there are many things to do/see (including the night market).

Would stay here again.

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!
