After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok The Legend is a pleasant relief. Our pool room facing the lawns and the river was excellent. The four poster bed with mosquito netting was quaint and comfortable and the bathroom was huge with a rain shower and essential oils. Breakfast was basic after the 5 star offerings in Bangers but they made...

Stayed here either side of a trek, four nights in total. We loved it. Slightly out of town but has a cheap shuttle. Great breakfast buffet and really nice high end Italian restaurant where we ate twice. Really beautiful pool by the river.

The hotel is a bit far from the main road (by foot). Room is clean and nice but I stayed in a room near parking lot so noisy in the morning. Less choices of breakfast and the taste of food is just OK. The garden is really nice and greenery with big trees.

The hotel is too far out of town to walk to any local restaurants - which is a shame, as you only have the choice of an evening buffet, or the Italian a la carte restaurant. As we are not big eaters, both work out very expensive. Our room was probably the furthest possible distance away from the main building,...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank for taking your valuable times to notify us your experience during stayed with us.

The Legend was our first hotel after a long flight from the UK via Bangkok. It was a very calm, welcoming experience and we were soon in our room. This was extremely large and cool. We had an ante room with plenty of storage room for our clothes and an electronic safe. This also housed a wash basin and had...

Nothing to complain about. It's a nice quiet hotel in traditional Thai style. The rooms are large with big balconies. HUGE showers! The staff is nice. Not all the staff are strong in English, but that was not an issue. We booked a boat up to Tha Ton through the agent in the lobby. I'm sure we paid 4x as...

We had a delightful stay at The Legend Chiang Rai! Beginning from the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a warm welcome and incredible hospitality. This excellent atmosphere continued throughout our entire stay, as we visited the restaurants, walked the grounds, and relaxed in the open-air lobby. The rooms, property, Thai architecture, service, amenities, and location are wonderful-- but...
