“Magnificent Room”
Reviewed 25 September 2009

This hotel is tastefully furnished & designed. Great for couples. Swimpool however is small, not really children's haven. Door handles are decorated with sharp dragon head features, hazard for children. Breakfast buffet is good, cooking is great.

Very nice hotel with great interior, friendly staff and great restaurant. Located in the center of old city, close to most of the tourist attractions. A bit noisy at night (thin walls and you can hear people walking on the corridor). Many pubs and bars close to the hotel.

We booked the De Naga after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It is a great spot to stay in Chiang Mai. On arrival you are given herbal tea and a hot towel while you are being checked in. You are given a complementary cocktail at the cafe at the front of the hotel also on arrival also.
The rooms are a good size, beds are so comfortable and the decor is so quaint. There is a mini bar, some not all of which is complementary, bottles of water, soft drinks, beer and nuts which are replaced daily. The bathroom is a nice size and the shower is fab! There is free internet points at the hotel and the pool, while on the small side is great after a hot day touring round the city.
There is also a tour operator located in the hotel lobby which we booked the night safari through, would recommend it as a great way to spend a night in chiang mai.
The breakfast was very good also, a great variety of food with your eggs cooked fresh just as you like them. We ate in the cafe also, the food was beautiful and very reasonable also. They make great cocktails too!
There is a bar at the entrance to the hotel which is always busy and it is very central to the attractions in the city. The night market is close by, we got a tuk tuk there only cost 50 Bhat, and they dont try and take you off to different places unlike other parts of Thailand.
I would recommend this hotel as a great spot to stay in Chiang Mai. The staff as so friendly and go out of their way to help you. It was a very enjoyable stay, and i would definately stay here again in the future.

service is a nightmare (except house keeper,really nice and helpfull), they try to charge you for everything... and always with a fantastic smile... felt really bad
air conditionning was really noisy and they wanted to charge us because we took a towel for the day, when we just arrived back to the hotel, they just said before "Hello", you have stolen a towel,then we'll charge you...
swimming pool is really small (be careful at the picture) and the water was not really clean
bad souvenir because the price was really high (if you check in the same street, you get really nice bungalows, much cheaper and really friendly)

I found the De Naga using tripadvisor and on our first visit to Chiang Mai we thought it would be nice to stay in a boutique hotel. We were not disappointed. I was travelling with 7 friends so we took up 4 of the 55 rooms. The rooms are beautiful and tastefully decorated. The bed was huge and very comfortable. There is a free mini bar with 2 softdrinks and 2 beers and nuts every day. Be aware though that it is only certain items in the mini bar not everything.

The whole hotel is lovely and so relaxing just to be there. Check in was fine, the reception staff are wonderful and so helpful. This also applies to all of the hotel staff from the bellboy right through to housekeeping staff. We used the tour desk to arrange a night at Khum Khantoke and it was very reasonably priced and a fantastic night out. A must do in Chiang Mai.

Breakfast was also good. The variety of jams, cereals etc was great and they cook your eggs and bacon to order so you know it is fresh. We also got a free cocktail every day at the Cafe De Naga at the front of the hotel. We ate there a couple of time as well and it was good. Cheap Singha as well (50B). The staff there were great. Great little Italian restaurant on the corner as well. They do a really good pizza for when you are Thai'd out.

The pool is not very big but was refreshing to have a dip in the afternoon after being out in the heat all day. Great location as well just inside Tha Pae gate and so close to the walking market.

I would definitely stay here again (and I hope to) and would recommend it to anyone. It is by far the best boutique hotel I have stayed in. Loved it.

We booked De Naga based on TA reviews and loved it. We stayed 5 nights including New Years 09. The hotel was not big, but it was very new, modern and central. We were 4 and stayed in 2 rooms, both very clean and spacious, tastefully decorated with attention to detail and price came with free water/soft drinks. The bed was confortable. Breakfast was delicious. Location was great, right next to Sunday market and walking distance to main temples, lots of restaurants, bars, shops and night market. Free internet on the lobby. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The concierge desk help us arrange private taxis to various sites (e.g Chaing Dao elephant camp and bamboo rafting) and tour/activities (Flight of the Gibbon, water rafting etc) at reasonable prices. There was a lso a small pool, but we did not get to use. My only complain was that as we stayed over New Years, there was an expensive (for thai standards) mandatory new years dinner (~50euros/person dinner, while the room cost 60 euros/night), but I understand this is common practice in Thailand over both, Xmas and New Year and that most hotels charge even more!. Anyway, it was great to spend new years in the center of town, close to where everything has hapening. I will always remember watching from a rooftop of a nearby bar the hundreds of lit paper lanterns all over Chiang Mai's sky.

The staff picked us up from the airport and gave us a mini-tour on the way to the hotel. They were very kind and pointed out some interesting sites and restaurants. They even gave us the history of old city and the wall.

The room was nice and we loved the free beer. The mini bar had other goodies available at a low cost.

I especially loved the bathroom. Large closet, full length mirror, good lighting, lvery spacious, large seperate shower, and large and deep tub. One day we got back to the hotel after a long day of touring and the pool was a little crowded (really only a group of 5 people but with a little pool, that's crowded) so I filled the tub up with some cool water and took a nice private soak.

We really, really liked breakfast....a lot! They had a nice selection of baked goods, fresh fruit, and home made granola, yogurt, and jams. I liked the vanilla pineapple jam so much that I bought a jar to bring home. The granola was killer as well with huge roasted cashews and toasted coconut!!!!

So back to the pool......it looked nice and clean, but any time we wanted to take a dip there was always a crowd.

We had breakfast, which was included in the room, at Naga Restaurant, but we ate dinner one night at Cafe Naga. Cafe Naga is located in the front of the property right on the street. We had mixed satay, kao soi (to die for), some noodle dish with a thick gravy sauce, and mango coconut sticky rice. The food was sooooooo amazing!!!!! Definately try this place. We also managed to sneak in a caramel filled brownie from their bake shop.... it was super delish!

This place is really laid back and in heart of the action, although it doesn't seem that way because it's so quiet and serene!
