The Chompor Lanna was built last year and the rooms are new and in great condition. The hotel is situated in a quiet soi next to Wat Duang Dee, close to three king’s monument and behind Tamarind Village, so a convenient location for exploring central Chiang Mai.
The hotel has ample parking and the large site has three small rice paddies, some tradional buildings and a large pond and waterfall. The landscaping is nice and there is a lot of space.
The rooms are in two blocks, one of five regular rooms by the reception and restaurant and five superior “villas” by the pool and rice paddies. All the rooms are upstairs.
I stayed in a villa and the room was very nice lanna style, ample space and fridge, kettle, flat screen tv with BBC/NBC etc. I had a twin first and then a double which was nicer. Linens good and bed comfortable. the double had a mosquito net which the twin didn't. Air con was quiet and worked well. There was a lack of drawers and hanging space however.
As others have said, the bathrooms are a let down. Tiny and not well fitted out, with some “lanna” features like an earthenware jar in the shower that just gets in the way. The sink is too rustic and there is nowhere to hang towels or put toiletries. Interestingly the twins bathroom was smaller than the doubles. It's a real shame about this and just some simple hooks, a shelf and new sink would make an enormous difference, also loose the jar. Sink only has cold water.
All The water around the hotel does mean there are Mosquitos and there were a lot in the rooms. I think the hotel should provide some room spray to combat this (I bought my own).
The staff are lovely and very helpful so top marks for that and the breakfast was good. I didn't eat at the restaurant but the menu looked good and prices reasonable.
I liked the hotel a lot with those few caveats and would happily stay again as it offers good value in a great position, but don't expect luxury bathrooms.
