New Mitrapap Hotel
Ranked #280 of 394 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Huge building, probably a former hospital. Well located but quiet as well.
It's been surely one of my worst experiences in a hotel:

- Old, shabby, dirty room. Besides, the toilet was broken and we had to get another room. In the second room, the water heater was broken too (temperature selector not working).
- Wildlife: we found a HUGE cockroach in the toilet, and a couple of geckos on the wall.
- The staff was very unkind and not very useful: they didn't inform us of the free coffee and toast (we read about it in the booking info); they weren't nice when we had to change the room (broken toilet). Besides, they tried to cheat on us: when we ordered a taxi from the reception, we had to pay there, and we got no receipt, no invoice, no nothing. But they didn't tell the taxi driver we've already paid ! The man asked us for his money, and we told him (I hope he got paid after all ...).

To finish with, I forgot there the battery of my camera. I sent them an email the next day, but never got an answer.

A not expensive, friendly hotel ( ฿450.- a night for two), reasonably clean although full of ants. Wifi worked easy. No breakfast apart from powder coffee. Restaurant over the road, well situated for markets, parking space ok. However my wife became ill after one night and I couldn't stop sneezing when I entered the room. Insecticide? Maybe not.

After spending more than 1 hour trying to find the place, I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful lobby. However, on exiting the elevator on my floor, it was more reminiscent of The Maze prison. The room was very basic and clean enough. Wi-fi didn't work. They wanted THB 500 for the key which I refused to pay. Would never stay here again nor recommend anyone else to.

Hotel is very clean, ac,TV and fridge are working. Personnel is friendly. Breakfast is very poor (coffee and toast with butter).
Be aware that booking the place via internet is 20%cheper so plan stay in advance as u wouldn't get a discount if want to stay longer.
And police is not suggesting walking in that area at night because of high level of crimes. . take a red cab for 40_60baht to get back.

Unless you like to hang around tourist magnets like bars and restaurants, this hotel is between 3 and 12 minutes walking radius to China town, the Tha Pae Gate, the night market and Sompet market Soi 7 Moon Muang on the North east side ot the old town.

The rooms and hotel common areas while really dated are cleaned every day and linen refreshed.
The min bar is empty for your use. The AC is remote controlled like the TV. The beds are comfortable. The staff are always there to help. The Wifi is good most of the time, with some melt downs on weekends.

Room Tip: Look at the room for ti's condition an views if you have a choice.

Like a lot of other reviewers of this hotel, on first impressions we were not overly impressed. It does have a strange prison-like interior design style on the upper floors. The room was basic, with built-in furniture that looked home-made and somewhat tired (some rooms were being redecorated during our stay). However, we had booked the hotel through an Air-Asia Go package, and our arithmetic deduced that we were paying next to nothing for the hotel. After briefly considering checking out and upgrading to another hotel we decided to give it a go. It turned out to be not so bad! The good points were the air-conditioning which was quiet and very efficient, the housekeeping which was also efficient with clean sheets, towels, soap and toilet roll replenished daily, and the small in-room fridge which worked well. The shower and toilet facilities were also not bad. The TV had an assortment of channels which were so-so. An English Language news channel would have made a big difference. The reception staff spoke variable amounts of English, but always tried their hardest, and what they couldn't manage in English they made up for with a broad smile! We'd heard about the breakfasts of toast, margarine and coffee, so we never participated. There are many cheap cafes around the area where a good meal can be had for very litte money. The location is good in that it is within walking distance of the Night Market and the Sunday Night Walking Street market. The local Chinatown is just around the corner where the Wararos indoor market which is mainly frequented by the locals is a "must-visit". For travel further afield the local "red taxis" which are converted pick up trucks will take you anywhere in town for app B20 pp you can just flag them down in the street even if they already have passengers. Tuc-tucs are also relatively cheap, but negotiate a price with the driver first. To conclude, if for whatever reason you are wanting a cheap hotel with good position, good air-con, clean sheets and towels every day, then I'm sure you could do a lot worse! If you are so optimistic as to expect Ritz-Carlton quality and service for hostel prices, then look elsewhere!
