Poor value & mediocre hotel, good wifi
It was the best wifi we've had in Thailand, but the hotel wasn't much outside of that. The room was large, but the bathroom is old & the shower is small. The check-in process was long (they didn't have our booking because their fax machine was broken & they didn't speak English). The hotel is conveniently located close to the Golden Triangle area.

Golden Triangle visit
We visited Sob Ruak where our daughter is working with Think Elephants International. It is a small town with the mixed appearance often seen in developing areas. The town is safe with friendly people, with storefront restaurants which offer delicious local cuisine and local street markets. The Serene Hotel was excellent, with all the amenities and a nice riverside location in walking distance to the "downtown." Breakfast buffet was comprehensive. We recommend the Serene; as the starting location for our 3-week trip to Thailand we could not have done better. The helpful staff and relaxing ambiance were terrific. Great value for the cost.

A very nice place in northern Thailand
The Serene is a very nice hotel in a beautiful place, the Golden Triangle, Thailand. The staff is extremely nice, and many of the staff speak excellent English (Pangie is awesome!). The rooms are very comfortable, and you can't beat the price. I would highly recommend staying here if you're passing through.

Expensive for What You Get
My husband and I stayed at the Serene two years ago and wanted to return as it had been really nice. The room was wonderful with the river view and balcony. The air conditioning was not working properly but the technician came up right away. It did not work any better....could not turn down the fan speed so air blowing right onto person on far side. The internet was annoying as everytime you stopped using it the wifi would shut down and you had to put in the network and password again. The pool was out of order and the breakfast was not as it had been. It was basic....egg, toast, jam, fruit and instant coffee. I asked for iced coffee mid day and I asked for cappichino in the morning but this four star hotel had neither. Only saw one couple there for supper and breakfast.
