“Not the old Princess but still the best hotel in Narathiwat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

Narathiwat has strong links to the Thai Royal Family and this hotel has long serviced the needs of their senior staff, politicians and other VIPs. The old Princess hotel was elegant and the staff superb, but the revenue and outgoings were not in balance. The property was thus sold and the new owner has pitched the hotel at a slightly lower level. As a result, many fixtures and fittings are now a little threadbare and the staff are no longer so plentiful or so immaculately dressed. However, the Imperial is still far and away the best hotel in Narathiwat, and excellent value for the price (as little as Baht 1,000 or $35).

The Imperial is in Narathiwat which is a city rocked by years of violent insurgency.. but if your going to southern Thailand you know all about that stuff already.
The Imperial is a calm oasis in a stormy sea.
The staff are friendly, polite and helpful... eager to please.
The rooms are large and well equipped. Everything you could possibly want is there - including a washing line in the bathroom and detergent in a little box by the sink.There are Malaysian tv channels in english as well as the usual international and local Thai channels.
There is a lovely pool, a small gym and plenty of security outside.
Its hard to find hotels this good in southern Thailand.. this one and the CS Pattani are the only hotels south of Songkhla that I would recommend.
The prices are VERY reasonable. If I remember rightly I only paid the equivalent of £30 per night, and its worth about 4 stars by European standards.
One problem is the restaurant.. They do their best, but there aren't many Thai people who would happily eat there. But no need to worry. There is an AMAZING fish restaurant 2 minutes walk away. Leave the hotel, follow the only road out of the entertainment 'complex' outside.. cross over the big main road and right in front is a blue-fronted restaurant that is always packed with people (it was when I was there, and I was there in Ramadan!!).

Probrably the only good hotel in the place.
Even if is a big starred hotel, you can have an human touch.
It's easy to meet the manager, Mr Borinai Moosa, to ask something on order for breakfast and so on.
I really suggest Narathiwat and this hotel!!!

  • Liked — it's the best there and have no alternatives of same level
  • Disliked — nothing
