Spent a week here while visiting family in Chiang Mai and found it to be pretty average, although very busy. We were booked here by our family because the location was convenient to their home. Actually the hotel is in a pretty good location and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. When we checked in we were given a room with 2 beds instead of a king. The bathroom had a bit of an odor and the beds were pretty firm. The front desk staff were accommodating and we were able to move to a king room the following night. It was a bit nicer, with no odor in the bathroom and a slightly softer bed. My wife said the towels, linens and bathrobes were also better in the second room. The rooms did have a fridge and there was a bedside control box which was handy for turning the lights on and off and controlling the thermostat. The air conditioning in the room was fantastic and kept things nice and cool. The selection of english language television stations was rather limited. The breakfast in the morning was fine, although the bacon could have been a bit crispier for me. Overall I have no real complaints and found the Empress to meet my needs. It was certainly better than the Lai Thai Guest House, the last place I stayed in Chiang Mai.
