“Grand Deluxe 'Penthouse' rooms”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

We were a party of 6 and whilst one couple had a 'deluxe' room on the 3rd floor (1200 baht per night inc breakfast) which was quite adequate, we opted for the Grand Deluxe on the 6th (top) floor (3000 baht per night inc breakfast). The hotel has 3 rooms like this. This review covers the Grand Deluxe Room. We stayed 4 nights. The large room is essentially open plan with curtains and screens around the bathroom area to preserve modesty. There is air con which is quiet and a large ceiling fan. The room has windows on all four sides and is a little like being in a lighthouse, it has terrific views of the mountains (which were mostly obscured by smoke in the atmosphere caused by burning off the rice paddy fields further north) and of the city. There is a double jaccuzzi bath which takes a long time to fill - but due to the hard water the bath water will not foam, good fun though! A small wardrobe is provided which means some clothes must be kept in cases for storage. The bed is very large and comfortable. It was not noisy and we slept well. There is a fridge that is stocked with some beer, soft drinks, fruit etc and these are included in the tarrif. Outside the room there is a private patio seating area which has a 'water feature' consisting of a small pool and waterfall effect that operates on a timer in the morning and evening. We used the laundry service which was efficient and reasonably priced. The hotel owned massage facility opposite needs pre booking and was quite expensive in relation to others nearby.
Breakfasts were taken in the outdoor restaurant on the ground floor and there was a reasonable choice of both international and asian cuisine with the usual 'egg cooking' station available. Tea and coffee was a little stewed but acceptable.
The small pool suffers from a lack of direct sunlight due to its posiion and pool towels were not immediately available on the 2 out of 3 occasions we requested them but eventually some fresh towels were found. Use the pool with a little caution, one of our party developed an eye infection after swimming which may or may not be related to the water - I didn't notice it being tested or treated at all. All the hotel staff are young , keen and helpful,they all have quite good English.
Location of the hotel is quite good. It is situated on a road that looks typical of the side roads in Chiang Mai, not altogether salubrious but nevertheless ok. Positioned just outside the city walls it is a 5 minute walk to the moat which surrounds the old city. This means it is quieter than other locations. The hotel is tidy and well kept and the standard of housekeeping was good.

Room Tip: A view of the mountains will generally be more attractive.

We just stayed for one night but we would like to have stayed one or two more nights.
Clean place, clean and big rooms. Also a good balcony.
Small swimming poll but the hotel is also small.
Old city it's very near and the train station it is about 10/15 min. walking.
Good value for money.

Hotel is just outside Old City walls. It's 10-15 minutes for the airport by taxi. The location is good as you can walk to the old city in 5-10 minutes and you can also walk to the Night market area in about 15ish minutes. Rooms were a good size. Had a small balcony overlooking the city. The rooms on the 5th floor had strange but nice features. There are windows onto the hotel corridor from each room (curtained for privacy) and the bathrooms have a window into the main hotel room (can close). All seemed strange to begin with but the rooms was very nice. Could have easily stayed for longer

Nice 3 star hotel just off the old city and not far from Chiang Mai Gate. The room was quite good and clean. The breakfast was simple with a selection of a few dishes of thai and western cuisine. Fare enough to fill your tummy till proper lunch. There are a few restaurants/eateries at Son Donchai Rd just minutes from the hotel. In any way taxi is cheap enough to travel around or you can even explore the neighbourhood by foot and chill in the pool afterwards... The only thing that soap wasn't provided

Hotels feels more like 4*, we stayed 6 nights in Deluxe double. Very big room with balcony overlooking the mountains. Really nice pool but does only get sun from 1-4. Breakfast was really tasty:eggs,salad,fresh fruit. Tea and coffee in the room,fresh water and juice provided in the room. Fresh fruit on arrival. All was perfect! 5-10 min walk to town. No need to take a taxi or tuck tucks.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days last week and it made us feel like home. The warm hospitality and service of the hotel was great. Room was clean and well decorate with a reasonable rate. Love the traditional design of the hotel itself. Located at a good location close to night bazaar. Might need to walk a bit to main road. Will choose this hotel if I visit chiangmai again.

Cannot fault this hotel. Excellent in every respect .
Close to all amenities, great staff, beautiful room. Swimming pool. Breakfast included in price
. Chang Mai is a great place to visit clean quiet cool and cheap. A visit to the Buddhist Temple on top or the mountain is a must some 2500 metres high. For food and drink visit Tiger Kingdom in Town,some 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Steak and chips for 129 baht.
