We stayed at discounted price which was about $50/night. For this price it was awesome and stay every time at that price. Probably would not pay more as there are lots of options in Chiang Mai. Very clean, nice pools.

We booked this at really short notice after being very disappointed with the first one we'd booked. Very clean nice rooms. Although the language barrier was a bit of a problem now and again, but the staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble for them. We ate lunch and dinner here a few times and the food was marvellous....

We spent four lovely days in this 4-star hotel on the Ping River. Great accommodations, good restaurant and a quiet, pleasant respite from the hustle of downtown. Staff is very helpful. Highly recommend.

The hotel was sleek and neat. It had middle eastern architecture. Though the rooms were much smaller than it was visible over the internet and it is quite near to Chiang Mai Airport. The staff is very courteous and always ready to help, though the breakfast had very limited stale Vegetarian options.

For a solo-traveler, I actually felt a bit awkward staying in this hotel alone. EXTREMELY romantic atmosphere. Adequate staff - no noteworthy attitudes among the workers. Very clean and safe. Food at restaurant was a bit of a let-down. Got a rash on my legs from using the bathtub- it was my own fault for deciding to use a bathtub...

I was impressed even before I stepped foot on the property. As I was traveling with my mother who has mobility issues and my brother I had a number of questions about the facilities before I booked. All questions were answered promptly and when we did arrive they were expecting us and had gone out of their way to accommodate...

Arrive here during Songkran festival in April. Upon arrival we were picked at Airport by hotel transportation.

Our room was upgraded and it was superb, with a view of the river which flows next to the hotel. We had our welcome dinner...
