Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

ISTY has feel of a hostel. I stayed about 10 days. Most of the staff speak basic English. They sometimes did not understand at all, particularly one girl/receptionist. F. e. I told her to keep the breakfast for me if I am not there until 10. They were preparing vegan breakfast for me. Only 1 option for all 10 days. She said she would arrange it.The of my departure I came at 10.30 and the breakfast was not there… The swimming pool was quite good but located by the road so it was noisy sometimes, even trucks were passing by, very often motorbike. I was going to stay for about a months due to my flight cancellation at the time of the lockdowns. We agreed on a certain price for my long term stay. After 10 days they said (one male receptionist) that the price is higher, that it was only “promotion” at the beginning. I was really surprised to hear that. I found another hotel and left. I had constant issues with cleanliness. After cleaning, I always found a few things (fridge from outside,…) that had not been cleaned. even if I asked them to do the rest, they came and cleaned half of what I requested. The old cleaning lady seemed to be annoyed. The carpet that was on the floor on the corridor was awful, old, and full of big stains. Plus they never hoover it while I was there. I had to ask the receptionist if the could tell the cleaners to clean the lift. It was unbearably dirty, look like had not been clean weeks, which probably was not. I even could not see myself in the mirror properly. The cleaners cleaned it just a bit after my request.. The room was small so was the bathroom. The most efficient, friendly but still very professional, with very good English, was a receptionist Praew. She definitely deserves to be the front receptionist. Actually, I was surprised to see such a capable receptionist in such a hostel.

Service at a high level, breakfast ok. On the roof is a nice place to spend time with a drink. Unfortunately, in the room on the ground floor we had ants, after changing to the upper floor a lot of small flies.

This hotel is so nice, the accommodations are brand new and top quality The location is perfect, right across the street from the best Korean BBQ I've ever had, and the muay thai boxing stadium!! The breakfast buffet is delicious and all food offered is fantastic, multiple typical nationality breakfasts are available and all are fresh and tastes great, ISTY even puts out excess food for access for the rest of the day. The wifi access is high speed and one can stream to their hearts content anywhere in the hotel. They offer scooter rentals for cheaper than with a third party rental company. Everyday my wife and I returned the representatives at the desk would ask where we were, what we did, how was it, and would even make recommendations for the evenings dinner and the following days activities. They have access to everything one would need and you stay in luxury for way below luxury prices, it's a beautiful hotel and I would stay again anytime!

We did enjoy our stay here! Breakfast close to swimming pool and so far the best ever in Thailand we ever had! Great choice, european as well as thai cuisine. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Very cozy rooftop bar with happy hours starting at 6pm. Comfortable, large room, very clean, with AC, safe and little fridge, always full of water for free. Just don't open windows at all, you get many moskitos. Very pleasant staff, always helpful, laundry service and trip provider agent.

Loved this hotel as a base to explore the city. Modern, environmentally aware, roof top bar, free snacks, water and hot drinks. Rooms clean and great design. The owners are super friendly and generous. Really such a great hotel. Has a cool hostel vibe in terms of good hangout places and easy to meet people on the roof. Also breakfast is delicious. Loads of choice. Fresh waffles, eggs, fruit, yoghurt, local dishes. Also has good restaurants near by. Thanks for a fabulous stay

Stayed 11 nights in a standard family room overlooking the pool. Fantastic service by the amazingly friendly staff who went out of their way to make our stay special. Lovely having breakfast next to the pool every morning followed by a game of table tennis in the activity room. This hotel is very family-friendly with plenty of space for the kids to chill out why the adults relax with a drink by the pool. Location was good and only a 5 minute taxi ride into the main city centre. Thank you to the staff at ISTY for a memorable stay and we hope to see you again in the near future.

A reasonably priced hotel close to various cheap eating places and located about 4 km from the bus station. Modern hotel with a good vibe. Breakfast had reasonable options for this price range and loved that the hotel offered free tea, coffee, water and fruits all day. Staff friendly and wifi worked well. My cons for this hotel were the pool being quite cold due to it being in the shade and lack of seating/lounging at the pool area. The lounges by the pool were actually in the water which is a nice setting but impractical at times.

1. I saw there's melt candy stains on the desk after I check in the room. 2. And the dirt and dust on floor didn't be clean after 2 days. 3. There's no ventilation facility inside the toilet and no partition for shower area make the whole room wet after shower. 4. The breakfast area and the food looks messy. There are lots of ants on the breakfast table as they put fresh fruit on the table.

We stayed 6 nights at the Isty hotel and we were very pleased. The family room had 2 double beds and the receptionists had taken into account our request for the second room to be very close to the first one. The rooms were clean when we arrived and were cleaned every day. The towels were changed every day too. The receptionists were friendly and spoke perfect English. They were very helpful too and had an excellent knowledge of the area. The rooftop bar offered an amazing view of the city and the mountains. I loved the light from the temple that was floating in the mountains at night! It was usually quiet and a lovely place to play family games. It was easy to walk to Chiang Mai old city from the hotel. It took 15 minutes. The restaurant at the top of the road is ace. The food is cheap but tasty (no vegetarian options though), and the owner also organises trips around the area, usually cheap (we paid 3 tickets for 5 people every time). I only give 4 stars for 2 reasons. The pool is in the shade most of the day and therefore is cold and the breakfast area is too small for all the guests. The breakfast is great though. Lots of choice. We will use Isty again for our next Chiang Mai trip.
