“Clean and friendly, in need of some updating”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Stayed here a week ago while in Chiang Mai for a couple days with my girlfriend. The pluses: staff is very friendly and helpful with booking transportation/activites, the rooms are large and clean, the wifi works well, and they serve a decent hot breakfast. The minuses: the property feels 70s-motel old, and needs some updating, especially the interior of the rooms. The large-building-around-pool setup probably lends to my motel impression. Location, a tuk-tuk ride away from the old town, is not ideal, since so much of the rest of Chiang Mai is walkable.

To sum up, while I won't be out recommending the place far and wide, if you got a good deal and you're looking primarily for a no-unexpected-surprises stay, you could definitely do a lot worse.

We stayed 3 nights on our honeymoon and we had a balst in northern Thailand. The staff at Rimping Village made our stay. They were so helpful in booking our excursions, even the last minute night before cooking class, to arranging a driver for the day to take us to the wat's and waterfalls at a great price. The grounds were nice, but could use some updating, but our room was great and tucked away, so we felt really comfortable.

We spent 3 nights at Rimping Village and had a lovely stay. The rooms are a decent size and quite comfortable. The staff could not have been nicer. They were more than helpful in booking day trips. Although the hotel is in a somewhat busy area the hotel is quite and very relaxing. Very easy to walk to wonderful restaurants. I prefer smaller hotels and Rimping Village was a very good choice.

I only stayed in this hotel for 1 night and would have stayed longer if it hadn't been booked out. The staff were my favourite thing about this hotel as they were very helpful. The room was large and I appreciated the bath (even if the bathroom was older style). The pool area was nice. I enjoyed breakfast. The location is a little further away but still within walking distance of the old city.

I am sitting outside my room of the Rimping Village right now, relaxing on the terraced area where they have placed very comfortable chairs. It is raining, but I am comfortable and happy, looking out over the pool. I just had a delicious breakfast with excellent latte, fresh fruit, eggs made to order, and lots of other options. My room is huge, the internet has been fast and reliable, the staff accommodating. I am within easy distance to some great areas for walking around, including the night market and many delicious food options? Chiang Mai, as is true seemingly everywhere in Southeast Asia, has a zillion massage places, so I went to one recommended by the hotel where I got an hour long amazing foot massage for $8, and then later on that same day a 90 minute full body Thai massage.

The front desk made arrangements for me to have a tour yesterday, and they also have a fleet of bicycles to loan out to their guests... although, please take care because inexperienced riders may been intimidated by the crazy traffic patterns and bumpy road surfaces.

My only minor quibble was with my shower; only in the sense that the water pressure was so unpredictable here that showering becomes an adventure; shivering cold water that suddenly becomes scalding hot then goes cold again, all within the same minute. So, whatever...

This place is a true gem. 5 stars for sure.

I can't praise the staff and hotel highly enough. The hotel is excellent value, very clean and excellent food. We only ate once in the evening and the food was as good as the best restaurant . The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful and organised our taxis and day trips quickly and efficiently. If we return to Chiang Mai we would definitely return to Rimping village.

Room Tip: It's a small hotel in a quiet area so don't see a problem with room selection unless you pre...

very welcoming hotel on our arrival from UK . Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. excellent breakfast near the pool and rooms spacious with good sized bathroom . About 30 min walk from old town but great walking location near to the river for the night market and restaurants. Tut tuts to old city ( little happening at night in old town ) were cheap . would stay again
