I spent a lovely 2 weeks at the Lotus Hotel. Please don't get this hotel confused with another
hotel in Chiang Mai called the Lotus Hotel Pang Suan Kaew or you will be sorely disappointed.
Also be careful so that the taxi or tuk tuk driver does not try to hijack you to the Lotus Hotel
Pang Suan Kaew as happened to 3 tourists from New York during my stay.
My room at the Lotus was spacious and lovely with glistening hardwood floors and marble
countertops around the wet bar and in the bathroom. The bathroom had a very nice modern
shower. There was a nice flat screen television in the bedroom with many cable stations
available. The owner of the Lotus is a trained architect and this is evident from the attention
to detail in the room and the nice artwork.
The genial owner is fluent in English, French, Thai and several other languages. He spends a
lot of time on the premises and the welcoming staff is well trained and speaks English well.
A lot of the staff have work at the hotel for a long time. Free wi-fi is available throughout
The hotel is conveniently located to the nightlife in the area. The hotel is also within walking distance of the Old City and the Central Pang Suan Kaew Shopping Mall or a short ride by tuk tuk.
The hotel offers breakfast and a light lunch. Dinner is available at the Garden Bar next door
which is owned by the Lotus Hotel. The menu offers a wide range of Thai, European, and
Middle Eastern food as well as a full wine list and cocktail menu. Friendly bartenders Bo and
Wit offer attentive service. My favorites on the menu include Chicken Kiev and a macaroni,
mushroom and chicken casserole.
The Garden Bar features a monthly Quiz Night and most nights a friendly group of
expatriates gathers around the bar.
For a boutique hotel experience at a very attractive price, the Lotus Hotel can't be beat.
