Royal Lanna Hotel
Ranked #251 of 389 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed 26 April 2012

This was my second stay in the Royal Lanna. It's not my kind of place–I don't like to be in the center of a tourist magnet, or a multistory hotel–but for what it is, it's good enough. B1500 a night isn't really expensive in Chiangmai, and my room was a decent size. Everything worked: no lightbulbs that needed replacing, WiFi signal was okay (but I actually used my 3G personal hotspot instead, so I can't speak about speed), hot water was reliable, linen clean, and so on. The staff, with the exception of one disoriented woman at the front desk, was prompt and helpful. (The woman at the front desk wanted to be helpful, too, but put so much effort into avoiding mistakes that waiting for her became infuriating.)

I thought the breakfast buffet was sadly lacking: no croissants or other pastry, third-rate bread for toast, limited quantity of undistinguished fruit. The coffee was drinkable, which is the best I've ever been able to say of hotel buffet coffee, seating pleasant. The friends I traveled with said they had an excellent supper in the same restaurant for the absurdly cheap price of B240 (USD 8) for three dishes plus two plates of rice.

If you like the Night Bazaar, or jostling with tourists from every corner of the world, the location is great. It's a very short walk to the Ping River, too, for visitors who like rivers more than crowds. The German restaurant just outside the driveway serves solid, appetizing food at reasonable prices, with extremely friendly and competent service.

I stayed for 3 nights. The Night Market is a stones throw away from the hotel front entrance. The staff are very nice, the rooms might be old, but they are absolutely spotless and spacious. There is a breakfast buffet that is more than adequate.

I stayed in this hotel early March 2012. The location of the Hotel is good, easy access from airport, rooms are old need to change the furniture and curtains.
Air conditioner was not very effective.Bathroom is clean enough but towels are worn out. Breakfast was good , Front office staff friendly and courteous. Overall
can rate as a 2 star + hotel. worth the price paid for.

Room Tip: ask for rooms on the highest floors. they are far better than the rooms closer to the ground floor

The room we were given was spacious with nice furnishings. We were only in this hotel for two nights but would return for a longer stay. As others have said the location is good and we enjoyed shopping in the night bazaar both evenings. Good 'ole american fast food was right across the street with McD's, Burger King and Pizza Hut. I know it's silly to get excited about fast food but after several weeks of rice and rural food it was a delight to order a mocha frappe from McD's (although I think they used expresso instead of coffee - it was strong!) I would recommend this hotel.
