My husband,2 sons and I recently spent 3 nights at The Legend in Chiang Rai. We got an amazing deal through Agoda (80USD/night) and the room was perfectly fitting all of us (king+single). It was a very comfortable stay, the pool was wonderful with a gorgeous view of the river. The room is lovely with a very relaxed ASian style....

Very comfortable. We liked this hotel alot - the pool, the staff, the food, etc. We wanted to go outside of the hotel for meals, but were advised not to and we're glad we stayed there and enjoyed it.

Stayed in a Deluxe Studio room for three nights in March. The room was surprisingly large with entry area/bathroom, separate toilet, huge shower room and a bedroom big enough for a writing desk and couch as well as large bed. Outside of our bedroom was a small courtyard with table and swing chair. We were just behind the beautiful pool...

The location of the hotel on the River is good, and the infinity pool overlooking the river is ideal for relaxing. While we were there few people used the pool, adding to the tranquility. The staff generally were friendly and helpful, and it was good to see the Manager at breakfast with the guests and around the hotel from time...

Dear Guest, Many thanks for staying with us in April and for commenting on our facilities and service.

We were quoted THB4300/night when my wife enquired at reception - I was standing right behind her and it was obvious we were together. After long walk to go see the room (nice enough, with a jacuzzi, and overlooking the Ping River) our guide made a telephone call and then announced the price was actually THB7500/night because, it transpired, I...
