Reviewed 10 December 2011

Only 2 nights for my trip I'm stay with Star Hotel. Have the opportunity to visit Chiang Mai. Star guests at the hotel. Near the Night Bazaar as a clean-room facilities have been renovated. This place is a little small. It is worth the price. I think it will come back to stay again if the opportunity.

Room Tip: Room on the south side are quieter

The hotel is situated at a location near to the night buzzer but yet far from the noise. It is along a street which is not very clearly lighted. however there should not be any safety issue even if return late. We were assigned to a 3rd floor duplex room. my frd has ask for a change of room to higher floor as he understand that higher floor rooms are better for the Star Hotel as they have already been renovated. We were told we can ask for change every morning. But till end of the stay, we still did not manage to change the room. The bed were too soft where slight movement will disturb the person sleeping next to you. There is no temp toothbrush provided however the rest of the toiletry are provided. can also book for the tour from the hotel tour desk near to the door however, remember to ask for the best price.

Room Tip: There is a lady in charge of the tour counter in the hotel lobby is friendly. Talk to her on the ava...

This is a reasonable inexpensive hotel with comfortable air-conditioned 'Superior' (twin beds) or Deluxe (large double bed). It is situated in a quiet side street about 2 minutes walk from the Night Market.

There is no pool or gym.

A recent upgrade means that you now have free wireless internet in the room, (but only one device can use the username & password at a time). Speed is about 1 Mbps,which is a big improvement on sitting at one of the previous two terminals in the foyer.

I negotiated a deal which did not include breakfast so cannot comment on the food. However the evening buffet looked quite good an well attended.

There is a coffee & tea making option in the rooms, however they charge Thb50/day to replenish the stock which is just enough for 1 coffee and 1 tea each if two people are using the room.

To offset this, free coffee/tea & cookies are available in the reception area (along with two Thai language national newspapers & 'The Nation' which is an English language national newspaper)!

There is no 'safe' in the room, but valuables can be stored safely in deposit boxes by reception.

There is a shower but no bath in the bathroom!

This was booked for us as part of a tour we had arranged with Thai Focus to the Elephant Nature Park. Given the choice, we would probably have stayed in a guest house or somewhere with a little more character.

There's nothing wrong with this place, it's clean, the staff are helpful, breakfast is huge and varied, it's just a bog standard mid level hotel, and we'd rather stay somewhere a bit more characterful. Ideal place if you want a western style visit.

Very close to good restaurants and bars and the night bizaar.

Star is so much cheaper than comparable hotels, probably because most of the rooms do not enjoy a view. On the other hand, the price is great, and the rooms are really of a high standard.

I spent just one night so I will be very concise: if you want to have a laugh with your friends and experience (for one night) what a bad hotel is like, go to the Star hotel! Where do I start? Decor: back to the 70's ugly ugly ugly! Cleanliness: the sheets in the bed were dirty (either badly washed or not changed). Bathroom would need update (and I'm being kind). Carpet on the floor is dirty and to top everything up, the room stank; at least we had a room with a view on the opposite wall. Reception staff unaware of whatever happens around them and generally unhelpful.  My friend and I were in the room laughing for about half hour because we couldn't believe something like that could still exist! Finally the breakfast with wonderful selection of: 1 type of egg, 1 cereal, coffee, sausage or wonderful hard like stone croissants! Probably the only good thing is the location (very close to the night Market) and the fact that I'll be leaving in half hour! What a joke!!!!

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
