The day of our arrival there were many people checking in and although we had to wait our turn, almost immediately eye contact was made with a staff member who gave us a warm smile letting us know we were acknowledged. The registration itself was not only fast and efficient but our preferences were given a high priority, i.e what side of the hotel we wanted to face, and did we want non-smoking, etc. My overall impression was the hotel wanted to ensure our comfort during our stay with them. We felt very much at home, so to speak. The staff from the front doormen, the concierge, the servers, housekeeping were amazing in that the friendliness displayed by one and all was genuine and welcomed by us - they all seemed to have an uncanny sense of when to kibitz and when not to and that we appreciated very much. The rooms are very, very comfortable - the bedding is to die for. Actually, I can only say that their attention to detail made everything perfect. The restaurant is most definitely ...
The breakfast was excellent and the doorman and information center was helpful. The location was great!! Terrible wifi in the room. Bed was very uncomfortable and outdated. The front desk women were rude and one woman tried to charge me more for a cab than another hotel staff, which is suspicious. Overall very outdated and do not recommend
Good location and very relaxing atmosphere
The location is fantastic. It surrounded by the shopping area, night market and restaurants with reasonable price. The lift is very slow.
There was nothing especially good, but the attitude of the staff was good enough. When I asked to change the originally assigned room to another, my request was comfatably accepted and quickly processed. a. The house keeper was very slow to deliver new towels when I asked to change them. b. I can't blame the hotel for this. One early morning (before 5 a.m.), the big sounds which made me hop out of bed. I checked the outside, and found someone was knocking the door of the third room next to mine, He did not pay any attention not to annoy his neighbours. He seemd to try to wake up his friend. The sounds finnaly stopped after several repetitions. Was I just unlucky?
Excellent hotel and facilities. Fantastic location near everything. Great room.
The hotel services are excellent, specially the hotel concierge staff services. The breakfast is good.
Never before did I receive a menue for pillows. That was excellent!
We have now stayed here twice, and now we will continue to stay here, its central location, great buffet breakfast, fantastic Gym & sauna. The pool was a little cold, we were not the only ones who thought this. Oct/Nov
Good location for shopping good breakfast Check out process
i really enjoyed staying at centara duangtawan, its close to night bazar and all facilities available around the hotel, the verity of food in the beakfast buffet was very good. i advice those whom planning for honeymoon to choose this hotel. finally, i plan to visit that hotel again in the near future. nothing
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location Pool wasn't in the sun all day and was very cold
The free cocktails and laundry as well as the fantastic views. The sports centre was also very well equipped with a good sauna and jacuzzi. The chinesr restaurant on the top forr was also excellent. We would come back to this hotel and recommend it to others. The in house indian food was not as expected.
Everything - the location was absolutely perfect and the staff were very friendly. This is the best hotel in Chiang Mai!
The location, close to the Night Market I booked additional deluxe rooms in the hotel for the same period via agoda. And these rooms were in the renovated part of the hotel. But after intervention we could move to the better floor
Good location. Easy walking distance to night markets, restaurants, shops. Lobby and common space is bright and welcoming. Rooms and hallways are somewhat dated.
location of the hotel is good ... and the staff were helpful the hotel is old and need to be renew. (old furniture and decoration)
I planned to stay at Royal Princess for 6 days. I ended up extending it to 15. The rates were good, service was excellent and the location is fantastic. Tour agent should be more specific about rates.
Very friendly reception services with warm welcoming treatment by the staff and cleaniness of the enviroment.
Fantastic location right on Night Bazaar street. Amenities and facilities were exactly as described. Internet is very sketchy. Signal went in and out constantly in room.
the location is very close to the night market and easy to find for the restaurant and spa the interior in lobby and lift is to old
Convenient. The renovation a bit disturbing.
Location is right in the night market with plenty of food nearby. Staff are friendly. We had rm 216 which was dark because it faced a blank wall and construction site . We couldn't sleep past about 7AM because of crying kids, scraping chairs and walking sounds. We assume the restaurant was below us. We stayed a week and room cleaning was minimal. The carpet was dirty when we arrived and wasn't vacuumed during our stay. The shower also needs attention as it is difficult to actuate. In general we feel we paid for a premium room but didn't receive it.
comfortable and very close to all ammenities at a good price
Our stay at the Royal Princess was great. The Staff were very heplful, freindly and courteous. Our room was spotless and the bed was comfortable. Its a great value for the money and the location is perfect. There was some painting going on in the hallway which created some fumes but did not impact our stay. I think the majority of the renovations are complete
everything wa very good. the athmosphere was cool
Everything. Excellent hotel. Nothing
very clean hotel with a relaxing atmosphere and good, prompt service
We were there for New Year's Eve and the restaurant was lovely.The fresh floral arrangements and christmas nut crackers on the tables were a great touch. The food was excellent.
The breakfast was amazing along with the customer service!! The staff were very attentive, helpful, and welcoming. Would definitely go back!
Excellent hotel in every aspect. Staff very helpful. Romms perfect and pool area superb. Maybe could have provided water by the pool.
Upon check-in we were pushed to upgrade so we could have breakfast included. I've traveled all over Asia and haven't had to pay extra nonetheless made me feel like I was a peasant. The service was average. Tried to fill up the tub for my other half and there were pubic hairs floating around. The room was also cleaned better based on how much tip I left. I had great experiences at other Shangri-La hotels but this wasn't one of them.
The security lady at the 1st floor entrance was so kind, truly felt welcomed. The hotel's pool and pool side service is excellent. The staff brings sunscreen, insect repellent, icy water, a few slices of melon and towels as soon as you get to the pool. The location is also decent and the hotel staff at the 2nd floor main entrance did an excellent job of getting us transportation and directing the drivers to the right places. The condo next door is being constructed, so we had to bear a constant construction noise at the pool side, but it is not the hotel's fault. The room is not as clean as I would like. The carpet is a bit old and is stained. The room air condition fan noise is loud even at the lowest fan speed setting. The most of the hotel staff did an excellent job of providing good service, but noticed the land of thousand smiles is no where to be found with a few staff.
luxuries hotel people are excellent they tried to please us by all means. breakfast buffet was not as we expected from Shangri-la standard if we compare with Malasia or Singapore Shangri-la food was not luxurious at all. I suppose because they had low ocupancy.
Shangri-La Hotel, Chiang Mai is excellent in all ways! It is strange not to find any flaw from arrival to departure..
excellent service second to none, staff is superb and location was good.We upgraded for the horizon club services ( not rooms) with mere 800 baht and the value of the money was excellent.Horizon club people are out of this world , so gooooooooooood I complained about the putting green , which was unusable and the response was immediate and the thanked for the feedback and informed me about an immediate improvement plan. These people are so good
Location is very go od the night bazar is only 5 minutes walk far , and there are alot of bars resturants and tour services arround place. no
We hope they change the tv and add more tv Chanels
Your staff, Breakfast choice and quality and the pools. Oh, superb beds! Room furniture a little old and poor quality. Bathrooms very basic (bath & shower especially with grouting between the tiles blackened with mould.
The swimming pools were great, breakfast was superb with selection and variety of free fruits and overall the facilities were clean. Location was excellent, could walk pretty much everywhere. Prices at the spa and restaurants are far above the regular thai standards but that is OK as there are tens of options in the neighbourhoods. Same goes for internet and laundry, which were priced as in Europe but luckily, there were several cheaper options available at the neighbourhood.
The location is very good and the restaurant/bar next door serves delicious food! The hotel is quite old and is in need of renovation.
Excellent value for the price. The hotel caters for all tastes and the service is impeccable.
i did not like the hotel, the staff were unprofissional, and hardly speaks english, no experiance in hotel managment althou the hotel is very old the hotel is old, furniture is very old, staff don't spaek english well, to hard to communicate with operator or room service.
Imperial Mae Ping is perfectly situated close to the night bazaar but far enough away not to be caught up in the traffic and noise. Airconditioning was difficult to regulate.
High quality rooms and friendly and helpful staff make for a great product! We had a great stay. N/A
curtain & carpet is old and dirty.
the complimentary beverage when checking in. the photos online are cherry picks. the hotel is generic, loud (lots of noise transmission between rooms), water temperature fluctuates an unsafe amount, staff smiles but is unaccomodating. Much better options in this city.
The staff is amazing! The hotel is beautiful and out of the pages of Wallpaper* magazine. I would go running back in a second!
Overwhelming and warm service; excellent service staff; great variety of breakfast buffet with national and international dishes; excellent location next to night bazaar (but quite)
staff, location, room food, all excellent nothing it was an excellent hotel
The hotel staff is very very very excellent . No .
Great location - Friendly staff - Excellent facilities - Nice accommodations. Good value for the money.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff Everything was great
Cleaness,location and staff constant attention to guest's need Terrible noise on the ground flour. The volume of bar music was often too high
Just one minute walk from the night market.
I booked a club room. You can stay on a higher floor then and it is nice to have some drinks at the lounge. The bar is quite nice, too. The rooms are small.
Location close to the night bazzar and conveience access to any near attraction. Stuck up front desk
The hotel has got a very good location, near the night bazaar, and several restaurants. The design of the hotel is very modern and stylish. The rooms are nice too. The people working in the reception were not always very attentive. Some were very helpful, but some did not make any sign of seeing the customer. Once I stood in front of the reception desk for several minutes, waiting to ask some questions. Four people were sitting there, but nobody made any sign of wanting to talk to me. One of them was busy combing her hair! I expect more from a five star hotel. There was also quite much confusion about our booking, the check out date etc.
room was spacious, comfortable beds, quiet and clean, convenient parking right at the front, good security, good kitchen. breakfast buffet did offer more varieties in the past
Near my favorite restaurant Jia Tung Heng Hotel staff ...receptionist is not polite n helpful
good service, grate location brakfast is the same every day
Though the hotel is old, it was kept clean. The attitude of the staff was friendly and kind enough. Basically the service was acceptable, but the information on the festival event in the city should be more properly gathered and provided for the hotel guests.
room big enough it is pity no safety box available.
hotel staff had a good command of English and were very polite and competent! Nice place to be, hotel is next to night market => very good! nothing
This was a decent hotel with a Great city location, for shopping and the rooms were much better than described in other reviews. The Breakfast was alittle lacking with selections not replentished , when they were out , they were out ! lol
It was clean. Great location. Minimal noise. The pool was closed due to rennovations - it would have been nice to have received a small discount or other benefit as one reason for selecting this hotel was the pool. The breakfast was OK (just). The coffee is awful - even busy hotels can make decent coffee.
the breakfast was average..no bacon..very ameuter service with no knowlege of customer service
Location, right next to the night Baazar., Did not have any facilities in the hotel. They would have to shuttle you to another place and shuttle would stop at 4pm.
The room was truly excellent value at 2000 Thai baht including as much Continental, American and Thai breakfast as you might wish to eat (in a spacious restaurant atmosphere). Our room not only had very comfortable beds but also a big sofa. There was free tea and coffee and the minibar was very reasonably priced - dressing gowns, slippers, plenty of hot water for the good bath and shower. Everything was spotless. The location near the night market is superb and the sound proofing very good. We visited at holiday time so there was no renovation or building work going on. This is now our first choice of hotel in Chiang Mai for sheer value for money.
The architecture and decor is suberb. The attention to detail is beyond description. Location is wonderful. It is wonderfully tranquil and reminded me of the Lost City in Beijing.
Loved the hotel's landscaping and the deign of the facility. I've never seen a landscaping crew work as hard, and their efforts showed. Liked the pool a lot as well. The staff's professionalism can really be improved. They weren't rude but They need to work on the little things. My wife asked the front desk for a list of the costs associated with the hotel's laundry service. The guy at the front desk says "it's found in the closet near the tv" (which it wasn't). This is supposed to be a five star hotel. Other places would apologize and quickly go find a list for their guests, instead of fault the blame on their guests. Additionally, there is no hair conditioner in the hotel's bathroom. I understand that some may not require this, but I'd be willing to bet a good portion of the hotel's guests do. You have to personally request conditioner from the hotel's maid service. Weird. And finally, their drink pool service has a lot to improve upon. I had to go to the hotel's other bar on the other side of the hotel to get drinks by the pool. On the last day of my stay, the hotel staff told me I could call that bar and they would deliver drinks over to the pool, but when I called, no one answered.
One of the best places we have ever stayed.......
We were so pampered by the resort. Siripanna arranged special wine and cake for us knowing that this was our honeymoon. We were so delighted and thankful for the staff. Everyone was so friendly and the whole resort is just beautiful and comfortable, almost like a paradise. We had such an enjoyable stay there and had an amazing time.
We enjoyed every think inregards to the hotel the pool & thw staff were all very good & helpful.
Excellent location and outstanding service and decor also features a high-level
The staff were amazing and the hotel grounds and landscaper were absolutely beautiful...
We booked quite a while ago and got a free upgrade to the honeymoon suite on arrival. The room was great and we really enjoyed the hotel and lovely pool during the very busy light festival. The breakfast was OK...but nothing to get too excited about! Maybe the breakfast could do with some improvement. But the other food we had during our stay was great.
Very Nice staff. Beautifully arranged hotel. We loved the koi's swimming in front of our room. Great breakfast. Small but nice pool. At night with the lights on it's even prettier! Everything very clean! We had problems with the shower. It was from hot going to cold and back to hot and so on. We think it was due to the other guests. On moment when there where no other guests taking a shower the problem was much less.
very good value for money, excellent restaurant, nice cosy room, very central
Very attentive, friendly and accomodating staff. Excellent little attached restaurant with good breakfast and very talented dinner chef.
very nice hotel, big rooms, nice bathroom, nice swimingpool,was great with a littlle kid. massage was not so good. we also paid more for the tour we booked trough the hotel than guests from other hotels.
Peaceful, beautiful design, nice location. roomservice.
The amazing architecture made this hotel experience so unique. The staff was 5 star. Nothing bad I can say. Would be nice to have a clock in the room though.
The better stile,design,very frienly staff!
room accomodations; attentive staff
It was a great location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing, pool area lovely. The furniture in the rooms were a little outdated, and the pillows were terrible, but the overall place was lovely
The staff were excellent and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. The hotel design was quite nice.
The hotel itself was stunning- so beautifully designed with every detail taken into careful consideration. The room was lovely- I particularly liked the bathroom! I used the spa facility which was excellent, a little pricey for Thailand standards, but it is a 4 star hotel! The pool was another great feature, again, beautifully designed to feel like a small lake in the middle of an exotic garden! No
Location is in a nice hip Thai area, we were amazed. Interior and ambiance of the resort is very nice. Free upgrade. Restaurant was not busy ( we were in low season). Music at pool to loud (solved). And once a snappy receptionist. And really the only flaws I can think of.
good location, good rate from booking.com wood decorations need more maintenance to keep the hotel looking clean, and not rundown
Helpful informative staff, great room & location
The hotel is absolutely "serene". Everything is spotless and the atmosphere is perfect for quiet relaxing. A great base (central location) to visit the centre of Chiang Mai and surroundings. The rooms are large with excellent airco and a nice balcony facing the garden. Every room has a large round hot tub. Free WIFI at the pool and on your balcony and free use of internetcomputers.They have a great breakfast with different hot meals and a wide range of fruits and also choice in sweat pastry.There's a cook at the counter to prepare your egg's or pancake just the way you like it. We paid 2400 THB a night which is not much for the high standards in this hotel.
Calm, well-designed, open-plan boutique hotel with wonderful garden, pool, breakfast area and water feature. The wifi worked well and was free. The location was very central, near the nightmarket, old walls and canal. The staff were wonderful. We liked everything about the hotel !
The matress was a little too hard to the point that I started feeling pain on my neck.
The Bodhi Serene is centrally located and good for exploring Chiang Mai. The rooms are large, decorated in a nice traditional thai style and have a very large bath. The hotel has a nice boutique feel and atmosphere. The hotel room rate I got was good value and I would stay again.
Clean, convenient and good value for money. Good swimming pool and rooms were spacious and comfortable The cleaning staff stole my watch - do be very careful with valuables
the hotel really is serene. The gentle atmosphere and its central location make it an excellent choice for Chiang Mai
dark woods including parket flour, intimate, nice swimming pool, value for money due to its special location a lot of moskitos on arrival
The best is the location in the heart of Chiang Mai combined with absolute quietness. Lack of small spa
Loved this place. Great staff and location, lots of restaurants nearby, Sunday Walking Street close as well. They treated us and our three young kids genuinely kid and nice. Changing rooms due to closeness to a pub was no problem. Great breakfast, nice pool.
