It's not that we had a particularly bad experience at the Rimping Village. It's just that the hotel didn't meet our expectations, especially after coming from a similarly rated "5-star" property in Siem Reap that was much better. On the positive side, the staff was extremely nice and accommodating. They helped us arrange tours and provided suggestions. Breakfast, while standard, was fine. The airport pickup/dropoff worked well and was very useful. They put roses on the bed as we were there for our honeymoon.
The room left a lot to be desired. It was simply a standard hotel room, one that would probably be classified as a 3.5 star in the United States. The bathroom had a flooding issue every time the shower was used. There was a rooster nearby that was very loud, starting at about 4am every day. And the location was a disadvantage, in my opinion. Yes, it's removed from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai, but the neighborhood is a bit secluded, and you walk down a sketchy alley to get to the city.
All in all, this is a fine property if you have reasonable expectations, but I would try something different if returning to Chiang Mai.
