“Awesome staff and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We recently stayed at the Rimping Village Hotel in Chiang Mai. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a suite (room 413) the room was spacious and very comfortable although we had some local wildlife nearby (rooster starting about 4am) that was a little noisy. the facilities are excellent and the hotel is located just a short ten minute walk from the Chiang Mai night market (walking street) and other attractions (shopping centre, temples etc). The best thing about the hotel was the staff. They went to the trouble of learning our names and arranging any tours or activities for us. They really made us feel like we were the only guests. I would certainly recommend Rimping Village Hotel.

We enjoyed our stop here. The service was friendly and room clean and well stocked with free water.
The hotel is a long walk to the old city walls so you may need to consider a tuktuk or taxi.

The buffet breakfast is a good spread and the pool area looks inviting.

We stayed for two nights, ten days apart. The service was excellent from the moment we were met at the airport. Rimping Village arranged transport to and from the hotel and this was in a luxury mini bus. When we arrived back after 10 days, we were welcomed back like friends and asked how our trip went, etc. Our luggage (which we had stored with Rimping Village for the 10 days) was already waiting in our room and they brought us fresh towels and apple juice to our room. Excellent service!

Our room was nice and spacious and very well equipped. It also had a balcony and you could open the doors at night to let fresh air in. The hotel is located within walking distance of the night bazaar and the Sunday bazaar and most of the important sights although tuk-tuks and taxis are readily available. We had a good breakfast with a range of warm dishes, fruits, yoghurt, cereals and breads/pastries.

We will most definitely recommend this hotel and return here if visiting Chiang Mai again. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the service was excellent!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are very spacious and quiet.

This is a fantastic hotel and was just perfect for our family of four. We had a large room with two beds -- just the right size for all of us. Loads of DVDs to borrow so that after a long day the kids could zone out a bit while mom & dad unwound with massages (check out the nearby Fah Lanna -- awesome). The staff here was helpful and welcoming; our youngest son celebrated his 9th birthday while in Chiang Mai and the hotel even provided a birthday cake upon our arrival. It's walking distance to the Night Bazaar and nearby are a number of good street food vendors as well as laundry services. Great experience.

Stayed for few nights. Staff are friendly. The most important is the staff do listen to us and organize things ahead. Baby court was arranged upon arriving without chasing. Suitcase were arranged ahead and up at our room after our second return to the hotel from a few days away. Taxi back to airport was well arranged and waited for us without us chasing them. Everything was great. Hope the staff can keep doing that and provide this good service at all time. Leave us very good memory.

My family stayed at Rimping Village end of November this year. The rooms were clean and pleasant, the staff were friendly and the food was good.

Rimping's proximity to Chiang Mai's old town was handy. Loved the free bikes. We used them each day to explore the streets of Chiang Mai.

Can't speak highly enough of the staff. After we left Rimping for a three day trek, we returned to Chiang Mai and stayed at different accommodation. On one occasion we were stranded in the city with no directions, nor any means of getting 'home'. In desperation we called in at Rimping and asked for help and they were fantastic! Taxi was called, directions given and iced water while we waited. Can't ask for more than that!

Can highly recommend Rimping Village.

Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. A close walk to the night market and many restaurants. During our visit, many people were enjoying the pool. Very nice buffet breakfast and strong WiFi internet in the room. Great A/C and good beds. We had a mid-level room and the place to use a laptop was small - an observation, not a complaint
