“Nice hotel in central location, good value for money...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

The Raming Lodge is centrally located, walking distance to the old down and the night bazar. The rooms and bathrooms are large, breakfast is surprisingly good and service is competent and friendly. It provides good value considering the hotel category and price point.

My room (superior, second floor) was pretty large with local, wooden furniture. It had a TV, small safety box (won't fit iPad or laptop), kettle and fridge. The king-size bed consisted of two beds pushed together, with a noticeable gap. They are firm - as often found in Thailand. The bathroom was also large, with local, slightly rustic tiles. The room was clean, but the towels and linens were a bit worn and could use replacement. The room and bathroom had small windows to the alley, leaving the room fairly dark - which may or may not work for you. The A/C worked fine, but is turned on/off by inserting the room key.
The service was very competent (more so than other mid-range hotels in Thailand), front desk staff was fluent in English (also better than average) and very friendly (same same as elsewhere).
The breakfast was a pleasant surprise and offered a wider variety than other hotels in this category.
The pool is located across the street and looked fine. The spa was under construction. The spa prices seemed well above other establishments in the neighborhood and I didn't try it.

Overall, the Raming Lodge was very good value and offered an above-average experience for this category of hotel.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the street and higher up for calm & quiet

Great place to stay !
Don' t waist your time to browse all hotels you can not find better than this one for this category of budget ! We stay 5 nights , deluxe room booked directly on their web site , very good deal including pick up / drop at the airport / breakfast / free Thai massage voucher / BBQ set voucher . Friendly staff , big bed , pool , near by night market , old town. We rent bike for 50 thb per day to move around .we even booked a tour with the hotel as it was more expensive outside . The boss is discret but always here taking care of everything !

This hotel impressed us. Their service was outstanding. The rooms are fantastic. The buffet breakfast was great. The location is ideal for walking around and close to the night bazaar. Definitely worth every cent!

If you want to stay in Town without the hassle Raming lodge is just for you.
Great rooms good food at a price you can afford. I have stayed here 3 times over the past years and found it very friendly, clean and even has a swimming pool.
You can have the normal room or go for the suite.

Room Tip: Go for a suite on the top floor and enjoy the views over the mountians.

I hate to leave a bad review but I was surprised by my bad experience after all the good reviews I've read.

The biggest issue is the paper thin walls and noise. I can literally hear the guests in the next room right now coughing and doing whatever it is they are doing. The rooms are dated and I feel the need to sleep in my clothes... And trust me, I'm not that picky. Wifi didn't work for most of the time, I ended up connecting to another place's wifi.

Upside: super friendly staff and location is close to the market.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Stayed here for 5 nights in August, and had a pleasant stay. This is by no means a 5 or even a 4 star hotel but the value for your money here is great. We payed about $40usd a night it's a nice hotel, good size rooms with huge bed, free wifi and breakfast included. Check in was fine, with a welcome drink on arrival. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the heart of Loi Kroh Road with tons of bars and restaurants around. Right across the street is a spa and massage place where you can get foot and back/shoulder massages for $2usd for half an hour. The hotel is within walking distance to the Saturday and Sunday walking street markets and close to the night bazaar area down the street. The breakfast included in the morning is pretty standard, have an egg station which was very good, and a its a mix between Western and Thai. We were also given 1 free dinner during our stay in the restaurant which was decent. It was a BBQ chicken skewer and sides were extra. Live music which made it nice.
We had a couple issues during our stay, which were minor but worth pointing out. Such as seeing a large cockroach in our washroom, having to get someone to come to our room 3 times to get our safe batteries changed. We also booked a few day tours with them which were fine, but they recommended an adventure day trip through Jumbo Elephant Camp (another review as well) which was pretty bad, so we were disappointed that they would even recommend such a place. We didn't know who the operator was until after the tour was booked and thats when we saw the reviews. Hopefully they don't book other people in the future with this operator.
Overall it was a good stay, friendly and helpful staff and hopefully those small issues were just a one time thing.

We stayed 3 nights in Chiang Mai and were really happy with the accommodation. Room was nice and big and very clean too. Had complimentary massage which was good and the breakfast is fantastic. We also booked a day trip through the hotel's concierge that we both really enjoyed. Good location as well as it's close to the night markets, a lot of massage places and the night markets.
