“Nothing royal about this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Except for the friendly staff, there was nothing royal about this hotel. The first room was located in front of the building, overviewing the night market. The room itself needs urgent renewing, only the bed was up to 4-star standard. Bathroom was more like 2-star. The night was horrible, with street sounds, party music, ... untill 4am. We asked to change rooms, they did so without fuss. This room had the same flaws, just not situated in front, so no street noise. The view from the room was horrible, and every hour a big airco machine started to make noise outside. The poor music in the hallway was way too loud and kept playing untill midnight. The swimming pool was more like an excuse for a swimming pool. In short, for European standards this was more like a 2-star hotel, once being a 3 star hotel. We're now in a 3star outside of the city for half the price, and it feels so much more welcoming, luxureous, royal than the royal princess.

Stayed for 2 nights, the hotel is very well located right on the Night Bazaar area. Exterior of the hotel looks very old, the interior of the rooms are quite nice, must have been recently refurbished, clean and equipped with all the amenities required. Lift has seen better days and took quite a while to arrive and small in size. Pool is a bit small and surroundings are not that attractive. Service is good though and good value for money. Will stay with them again whenever I am in Chiang Mai

Stayed here for 4 nights. The foyer is looking tired but they are spending the money where it matters. Great room which had been recently refurbished, free Internet, good hot shower and fluffy towels. Breakfast room was very pleasant and airy, good choice of menu, including fruit, Thai food, eggs, and European continental. Yes it is in the centre of the action, but that was great for us, however once inside it was a haven of peace, a perfect combination. Don't forget to use the little red topped buses, we were lucky enough to flag down Noi on our first day, she became a brilliant guide for the rest of he time we were there and even delivered us back to the airport. Great hotel, love Chiang Mai.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was simply the best ever. The location was great, very near the night markets for good shopping. The service was great and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We always looked forward to returning back to the comfortable beds after each day of shopping and sightseeing!

This hotel will be great for you if you like a busy busy location. It's located right in the middle of Chiang Rai busy night market.
I didn't like the location, but I have also didn't like the night market.
The room we got was very small, and the hotel is a bit too old to my point of view.
But if you like to be in the center of the center, this is the place for you.
If you go to Chiang Mai a recommend that you find a good hotel that is by the river

The Royal Princess may be showing its age but it has been well maintained and has the charm of the older hotels. It is located directly opposite the night bazaar markets and is a convenient walk to the old fort and the other side of the Mae Ping river as well!

Dwarfed by the Le Meridien and Royal Lanna, it holds its own with friendly staff and good, if not great, amenities. A warm smile greeted and bade us farewell and was a great place to kick back after a days travelling.

One final tip, they are linked to the Central Airport shuttle, which is a convenient way of getting some shopping in but also as a way to sight see the city for free!

We were in Chiang Mai for Loy Kothong Festival and this place is in centre of every thing. Two minutes from the river, a minute away from night market. Beautiful hotel with lovely staff. Definitely recommended. Rooms are very good in size and very well decorated.
