Lampang Wiengthong Hotel
Ranked #18 of 29 Hotels in Lampang
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I stay at this "business hotel" for one night to attend a seminar. The rooms are ridiculously dated with damaged furniture, stained linen and a dingy, dirty bathroom. Breakfast included in the rate is terrible. Even properties I describe as "poor" usually have one or two good things worth mentioning. But that isn't the case with Wiengthong. Lampang now has decent B&B accommodation so stay away from this dump.

I stayed in this hotel for one night. The bed wasn't bad, the bathroom and room decor were quite dated. The breakfast in the morning was a buffet, I tasted most dishes and enjoyed the food.

I caught a horse drawn coach to a local restaurant in the evening. I would definitely suggest that you try out a horse drawn cart, experience something local.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Chiang mai, the reason for choosing this particular hotel was for its swimming pool (apparently there are only two hotels in lampang with pools), however we should have looked at it before booking! There's nothing particularly wrong with the room itself, although it didn't have a balcony but the pool was very murky with no loungers so didn't use it. Breakfast is included in the price but wasnt very appetising. We wouldn't stay here again.

We, a group of professionals had to stay in this hotel in the month of July 2011 and then in Sept 2011. What a mess in the reception area as it was converted to sell flea market goods. Totally messed up!! We all felt cheated for the environment. We went to the breakfast room.. Oh my God, it looked like a crowded bus stop and service was so poor. Unfortunately, we do not have good property in this town.

Room Tip: No tip is required! Best advise is to stay away from this property, if you can!!!!

En route to Bangkok from chiang Rai, I needed somewhere to rest, this place popped up on my search, and judging by the trip around the town it was probably the better choice.

This place is well dated, and in it's hay day was probably something else to be seen, sadly today it is just a stop off for travellers and the whole place is in a time warp basking on its glory days of the 1950's.

I was comfortable enough, and had a meal in the restaurant which was very nice, and not over priced. There was free water provided in the room and a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.

If you need a place to stay when travelling through Thailand then this place is OK, go with an open mind and think It's just for the night and you should be ok.

Room Tip: ask for a deluxe

This hotel was probably quite nice when it was built, but such a description could not be afforded it now. It's tired, dog-eared around the edges, and is in desperate need of refurbishment. Exposed wiring in the rooms, stained carpets and dingy dirty bathrooms are it's current offering.
The staff too are in need of a makeover. The reception staff in particular appear uninterested, and at not time appear to put the guest first. Whilst staying on the 10th floor my wife called the reception to ask if they could send up a wifi voucher to our room. We were told that they would not be able to do this, as there was nobody available to bring the voucher to us. Yet when I made the journey down to the reception 2 minutes later I found 5 members of the reception staff sitting watching the tv.

The breakfast food is awful, the wifi 'speed' appalling and hotel offers very little value for money.

The only positive that I can say for it is that it's better than the Wienglakor Hotel across the street.

In summary: awful, avoid if you can.
