“Great Location. Good cheap hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

Yes the hotel is showing it's age but overall I found this hotel much cleaner than some of the older hotels I have stayed in this location and it was cheap. Stayed in Deluxe Room which was spacious and mainly clean apart from a few small niggly bits in the bathroom which would have not taken much to rectify. The bed was very comfortable and the room itself was away from any traffic noise.
The street where the hotel is located in is not the best looking street to walk down but it is totally safe as is the rest of Chiang Mai is. The hotel is situated at the back of the Centara hotel and next to an unfinished hotel which was abandoned some time ago.
2 free internet computers in the Lobby
Negative points
Unfreindly staff at reception (except for one) which could be down to their command of English)
If you drink coffee in the room it has to be paid for, however coffee is free in the lobby during the day.
No swimming pool, but this does not bother me.
Breakfast is average and does not really cater for westerners
Will I stay here again. YES

I stayed in Star Hotel for 3 nights. Upon arrival the receptionist lacked common manners and was quite rude and unhelpful. They could not find the confirmation of transfer that I had sent a few weeks earlier. The breakfast was of a good standard and rooms were clean quiet and comfortable. The same receptionist upon checkout was just as unhelpful no smile no manners a dissappointment in fact considering that all the other staff were great. Bad day or not if you work in the leisure industry you must deal with your guests politely and with a smile.

we didn't agree with many negative comments about the hotel, sure it is an older hotel located near all venues, a short walk to the main street, towels were replaced after two days even though we were following the conservation options, beds were clean and comfortable. if staying longer than two days there are better breakfast choices outside the hotel. aside from that we had a pleasant stay.

My friend and I stayed at 2 places in Chiang Mai on Our holiday to get a feel of the different Places. The first one was next side Thapae gate which we much preferred. But Star Hotel was also good because at the end of our stay it was convenient to run out and get last minute gifts at the night bazaar.
Star Hotel is kind of rundown and not so new but it was alright for the price and location. We were happy that the bed was clean and nice. Not so the carpet but since we were hardly in the room it didn't matter.
The Best thing was the free internet and free drink. they provided at the lobby. Breakfast was quite alright with a mix of western and thai food. Overall, this is the place to stay if you just need a reasonably priced place to sleep near the night bazaar. Just don't expect perfect service and spick and span rooms.

Very old hotel. Carpets have not been cleaned for quite a while. Rubbish left under beds. Shower not working properly & dirty. Bathroom has not been cleaned. Furniture in room very old. No safe in the room to keep belongings.
Wifi in room great & location fantastic. Otherwise very ordinary & am regretting paying upfront or would have left already.

i looked for a simple place to stay at chiang mai, didn't need fcilities (pool, spa etc.) just clean place to sleep in - star hotel couldn't fulfill even that,
the hotel is so depressing, dark and desolate that it's not worth the proximity to night bazzar.
when i asked to deposite personal items, all three reseptonist began to look like crazy for their key and asked me to return after few minutes. when we left - same story.
at check out they demanded us to pay for a coffee that we allegedly drank at the room, total lie! when i insisted that we didn't drink anything i was asked to wait until thje reseptionist check - in another person who waited after me.
when they realized that i won't give up, just like that (no double check and nothing) they released me!!!

The Star Hotel is in a great spot, very close to the night bazaar and within walking distance of a number of good restaurants. The rooms here, however, leave much to be desired. They are sparse to the point of appearing unfinished and, more importantly, are unclean. The carpets, in particular, do not appear to have been touched in some time. Front desk service was largely perfunctory and the on-site restaurant was passable if unexciting (I only ate here for breakfast). This place has potential given its location, but I will likely seek out other accommodations the next time I am in Chiang Mai.
