Reviewed 18 July 2013

I stayed at The Empire with adult family members for about 2 months (May/June '13). It is very new with a fast elevator, decent wifi and modern washrooms. They do charge for wifi, water and electricity but this par for the course up here and quite fair, bearing in mind the very reasonable rates overall. The beds are comfy, TV quality good and the staff are unfailingly polite, helpful and pleasant. The only eating facility seems be be a separately owned resto off the lobby. They serve a buffet breakfast from 6.30 until 10'ish. The quality and choice are average, verging on poor. It is an open style resto, no a/c, and blackflies abound, swarming over diners and the food. Not good. It seems out of sync with the hotel. Lots of decent resto's a few minutes walk on Nimman ( I highly recommend "Smoothy Blues" at corner of soi 6 and Nimman, for brekky). Empire has no pool but a decent gym ( treadmills, universal, weights, eliptical). Underground garage with 24/7 security. There is another hotel next door that allows non-residents to use pool and facilities for about 150 baht/day. We spent long time crunching numbers and for long stay, this is the best hotel, lack of pool considered. Great location, reliable and clean. The north side (facing soi 6 is noisy at nite-sometimes all nite). I recommend the south side for quiet.

Room Tip: South side quieter. Cannot delete the " poor" entry opposite swimming pool- there is no p...

I liked the location of this hotel a lot, a 15 meter walk to Nimman, where there are a lot of little restaurants, coffee shops and bars. It was however very noisy. My room was beside the road and there were cars driving by with heavy music on all hours of the night, on top of that the soundproofing towards the hallway is very light as well. The furnishings in my room were fine, quite modern and clean.

With the best location in Chiang Mai, this hotel must be one of the best. I was so suprise when I reach the room. It's very big, clean and beautiful but so cheap. There are lots of nice restaurants, pubs, shops and ect. around the hotel. I really love this hotel.

I stayed for 2 nights on my business trip. Hotel provided good service (meets standard).
I didn't bother with maids as seen from some previous comment.
Biggest disappointment was the breakfast. I think they can provide more quality in breakfast.

Stayed there for 1 month renting a serviced apartment. The location is good, just near Nimmanhaemin road. However the service was one of the worst ever experienced. The maid is finishing cleaning the room in less than 5 minutes, and when you ask for an additional towel they want to charge you 100 baht per day in rental. Since it is a serviced apartment you pay the electricity charges which were almost 7000 baht for one month.

Very well located at the middle of Nimman Road.Lots of restaurants & cafe nearby. Tesco Lotus right below the hotel. Simple & modern room, lots of wardrobe space, free wifi & LAN. Comfortable beds but some pillows a bit lumpy & harden. Nice bathroom. Shower water pressure is not very good.
Overall it's a nice place to stay.
