“Great location”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I stayed at De Naga for two nights. Great location and good service. Food not back and there are lots of other choices in terms of restaurants in the neighborhood. Walking distance to the night market and sunday market.

This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The service was second to none. The staff were always helpful and smiley no matter what time of the night! The pool area and general furnishing and decoration of the hotel was stunning. The antiques and paintings made you feel as though you were staying in a palace. Our room was gorgeous and the food was great too. Stay here!

De Naga's created a nice oasis located in a very convenient area. A bit of a walk to the night market but good for Green Bamboo massage (hands down the best), Saturday walking market, street foods n nicer eateries. Room was rather dark & well used with a very firm bed, bathroom was tiny & towels were mismatched & threadbare some days. Shower was very large w/plenty of hot water. Good a/c. View was of run down parking lot, power lines & trash.... (see pics)

Outside common area is quite pretty w/low drum music playing all around; setting a very "yoga-esk" mood. Pool was neat but also well worn & closed at the odd time of 7pm. Mosquitoes could carry a person off at night so maybe that's why.

Staff was ok & quite nice .... in true Thai style. Breakfast oddly expensive so go out to the bakery down the street or even the restaurant at the street which looks a part of the DeNaga complex.

Be certain that dragons (naga) don't give you nightmares before you book this hotel! Lol They're supposed to be good luck so if 1 is good, 100 must be better. They're everywhere!

Room Tip: Rooms with high ceilings will feel less "tight"

We stayed for 3 nights before moving on to Khao Lak. We arrived Sunday evening and went to the Sunday walking market which is minutes away and was not to be missed. The hotel was close to everything whilst being set back from the main road in its own oasis. All the staff were helpful even making dinner reservations etc. we dined in the 'house restaurant' on our last night and would also highly recommend.

I recently stayed at the De Naga for four nights. This quiet boutique hotel is located on the eastern edge of the Old City just a five minute walk from the Ratchadamoen Night Market. Check-in was handled courteously and efficiently. I was assigned a room towards the back of the hotel. There wasn't much of a view, just the alley behind the hotel. The room had hardwood floors and was decorated with dark wood furniture and Asian themed furnishings. The furniture was in definite need of replacement as they contained many dents and scratches. A small refrigerator and kettle were provided and included packaged coffee and teas. The bed was comfortable and the linens clean and crisp. The bathroom was a comfortable size and included a tub with shower. Although the bathroom appeared clean for the most part, a thorough cleaning around the tub was necessary as large patches of mildew were visible. The air conditioning worked well and was fairly quiet.

My room rate included breakfast each morning that consisted of a nice buffet with various fruits, pastries, breads, several Western and Asian hot dishes, and eggs cooked to order. On a couple of occasions I also dined at the hotel's other restaurant located at the front of the hotel's driveway. The restaurant offers a variety of Thai cuisine but also includes Western options. Service was good at both restaurants.

As others have mentioned, the pool is small and not suitable for swimming but rather for lounging and a cool dip during the heat of the day. Two computers with Internet access are available for guest use in the lobby (free of charge) and the hotel offers free Wi-Fi in the guest rooms. There is a concierge stationed in the lobby that can assist with sightseeing.

Tuk tuks are readily available near the front of the hotel. The Old City is easily walkable and one can walk from the hotel to the western edge of the Old City in 25-30 minutes.

Overall, I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay and highly recommend this hotel. All of the staff I encountered (at reception, in the restaurant, housekeepers, porters, and other staff) were all very welcoming, gracious, and happy to assist in any way. I believe they are the hotel's strongest asset.

GETTING THERE

The airport is 10-15 minutes away from the Old City by car. A taxi from the airport to any location in the Old City is a fixed rate of 150 baht (about US$4) if you go to one of the taxi desks and purchase a ticket. On the return, the fare is based upon the taxi meter. Surcharges apply in the very early morning and late evening hours.

The hotel location is perfect - in the Old City, but tucked away up a private lane, near the Sunday market street, if you're into buying cheap Chinese stuff. It's new construction & the rooms are large with modern bathrooms. Breakfast is excellent, & there are many restaurants nearby. The pool is tiny, but we didn't go to Chiang Mai expecting to use a pool.
The service was excellent - even drove us out to the airport in the hotel car, and the decor is interesting. By chance we were there during the Flower Festival so the prices were higher, and there are of course many cheaper options in Chiang Mai, but we would definitely stay there again
