Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very ugly outside and inside! Dirty blanket on the beds terrible toilet. Door that don't close and any upgrade of room is just a waste of money the structure are very badly damaged and you risk an electric shock from naked cable on the rooms.

This hotel boasts being the first 'luxury' hotel in town; this could only be true if it was built 40 years ago and not a single maintenance job had been done since. Arriving at 4am without a booking we were just grateful to get a bed, which I admit was at least clean and comfortable. Beyond that though, the place was pretty gross. Dirty bathroom, dirty pool, dirty everything. Breakfast? It was yuk; sad looking weiners sat in cold water alongside other equally unappealing tidbits. Plates were dirty, flies were afoot. Tried to order drinks via room service, the phone didn't work, they took it away, and that was the last we saw of it. Staff were nice, and gave us help when needed, but it ain't enough to drag me back to this place again! Tip Chang - accept you've long lost that 'luxury' hotel status and target the backpacker market or get started on some seriously overdue renos!

horrible rooms (tried 4) cheeky staff (asked me for 100 baht for taking a small case upstairs after I gave him 20). Mosquitoes in the room - dirty place all round. I paid through Agoda and lost 850 baht rather than stay there - a dump.

It is marketed as a "luxury" hotel but that was 20 year ago. They still charge premium prices for a 250 bath room. The pool was drained a long time ago but this is never mentioned. The rooms looks to be "renovated" with splashed paint here and there and silicone.

If they lowered the price to the 200-300tbh range it would be a good place. Now they mostly survive on renting out party rooms and the shifty karaoke establishment in the ground floor.

I booked this on Agoda looking at glossy photos. I was highly dissapointed on the pathetic condition of grand old hotel. Rooms/bath were in pathetic condition and very basic. I was put off by near break down condition of the place. Staff are very helpful and that was only good part of the deal. This hotel is cheaply priced but other guest houses are much cheaper with similar or better living conditions. Other star houses might be in range of 70 USD to 100 USD but are much better. Lampang is a small town with lot of attractions and can be easily accessed on rented car/scooters. Hence location of all hotels make no difference due to ease in access.

I don’t know where to start!

Stayed for 1 night (1 too many!) in August and chose the hotel from the information provided on the hotels’ website which coins phrases such as
‘‘The 1st luxury hotel in Lampang…’’
‘‘Feels like staying in your own home’’ and
‘‘The legend lives on’’.
Certainly the nightmare lives on.

When you arrive you find images of the room choices fixed to the reception desk. You choose the room type you prefer from the choice available. Within 2 minutes of entering our room I was back in reception asking where was the room I had booked. I thought I had booked the best suite available…after a discussion the reception staff decided I had, although there may be a better room but that had a flooded carpet.

It turns out the information on the website and in the brochure is more than ten years old.

The ‘’suite’’ was tatty with plastic lined curtains, no pictures on the walls, no ornaments on the rickety furniture, handles missing off cupboards although strangely enough the bathroom was of a good standard. Having been out for an evening meal, my wife & I decided to have a drink from the minibar. Having selected two bottles of beer, we frantically looked around for the opener, which we couldn’t find, so I went to reception to ask if I could borrow an opener. Without further a do, the young Thai lady proceeded to use the doorjamb of reception to remove the tops.

It’s just that the hotel was so dirty and looked so unloved…refurbishment is well overdue.

My wife and I couldn’t face breakfast so we left as soon as we could.

Although modestly priced, I feel my expectations were way too high as set by the web-site and reception information. Surely the management/owners should remove/modify this out-of-date information to avoid disappointing further guests and visitors to Lampang.

I stayed at the hotel for one night to join Songkran Festival. The hotel is renovating as I could see. The room had removed the carpet out and changed to lovely clean white tile. Breakfast was good and also the atmosphear in the restaurant. We bought a package which include dinner at the restaurant by the river and ride the hourse carriage from the hotel. There was a great view and the food was great taste. I recommended.

We stayed here one night with 4 rooms, the beds are good but the rooms surely have to be improved, using the bathrooms needs a good mental condition.
Anyway the service made it all, the staff very friendly and the restaurant, eventhough not very promising from the looks, served very good Thai food with an attentive waiter, the breakfast was absolutely fabulous and included in the reasonable price.
The location right downtown is good for an evening walkiing stroll and to get on the horse carriages which take you around town in the morning.
Free wifi access is provided in the lobby area, so are 2 PC stations.
It's a typical thai biz hotel which you can find in every city, we would go there again.

i have stayed in hundreds upon hundreds of hotels in my life. this had to be the worst of all. no joke.
dirty dirty rooms. ancient toilets and bathroom fixtures. broken things. ripped and worn furniture (see pictures attached). it is also downright dangerous to stay at this hotel- the key to one room will open all the rooms on that floor!!!!! we know this because we were shown a room, rejected it and suddenly asked to see another room. he used the same key to open another room (and no, it wasnt a staff master key!!! it was the numbered key with tag that he would later give us). later we also tried the key in the room of the couple travelling with us - and yes it opened their room too! if it werent so late at night when we arrived we would have run! the more expensive superior rooms were supposed to be rennovated but i guess that meant it was rennovated in 1969!!! we didnt even eat breakfast- just got out of the adams family pit first thing in the am.
sleeping in your car would have been more comfortable and safer.

This is an old hotel, and it is true that you can see that upon arrival.
However, there are talks about renovating the place (I talked to the staff) but they cannot do it all in one go (which is understandable because of the budget and the amount of things that has to be done).
And the staff makes up for it. Some may be a bit shy to converse in the English language, but you can see that they are trying. Also, there are managers walking around who would love to help out and make your stay as comfortable as possible.
If you would make the effort to come visit again later, I bet you can see the improvement. Just don't expect the furniture and the state that the hotel is in at this moment to be like a Hilton hotel (let's be honest, you also pay much less). Also, keep in mind that the pictures that are on the website are old and made a bit more glamorous. But then again, what hotel does show it's actual state of the rooms? The price is fairly reasonable, and the service is with a great smile. The staff welcomes you as one of their own.
