    Fabulous 8.6 From 166 reviews

    Good 6.0
    Lacks attention to detail.
    Where do I begin. Kitchen had dirty dishes and utensils, no microwave and no pots and pans. Had to go ask for pans to cook with. They had two worn out pots to choose from and one pan was broken. The rooms were very spacious and bathrooms were relaxing, clean and modern. False advertising with no memory foam for beds as site stated. Housekeeping left our door wide open so when we returned we had two lizards and mosquitoes in the main living area. WiFi was spotty and was unavailable from midnight to 8 a.m. neighbors above us woke us up with rowdy running, yelling, laughing, loud music, and splashing. They slammed their sliding glass doors repeatedly. Attention to detail was lacking. A lock on one of the sliding glass doors was broken so we couldn’t lock it. Security booth looked sketchy with random people always hanging out with the guard. Receptionist insisted that we give him/her our passports so they could make copies. Told us it was for our safety in case someone robbed our room. Loved the spaciousness and bathrooms. Robes were a nice touch. But not enough to make us book here again. I’d give this place a 2 out of 5 only because the kids had a blast in the private pool and I enjoyed the shower and comfy oversized couch.

    I would definitely come back.
    The absolutely best service I have ever received. Good food within walking distance. And good WiFi. Breakfast - meh. Really clean everywhere, and a small gym with free weights.

    Fair 4.0
    Great reception staff - very bad and old hotel
    The opium from online reviews had great promise. After visiting the opium and spending a week there, I felt it’s necessary to provide an accurate insight on my stay. The reception staff are amazing, very good English, very helpful and helped us book tours and provide a lot information. It’s a decent area location wise, near night markets and local markets. But that’s as far as the positives go. The hotel is very old. The rooms are dirty and even when cleaned it still feels dirty. The toilet and the room stinks permanently, whilst the shower water is never hot! The internet is completely bad, slow and doesn’t connect a lot of times. The cleaners are rude and never cleaned the room properly. The pool is also dirty and the breakfast options are small and tasteless. Lastly if you want an authentic experience in Chiang Mai, the hotel is full of tourist and not cultural vibe. I came with my girlfriend based on the reviews online and to be honest, I would not go back ever. Bad experience. Felt dirty my whole time there and was delighted to leave.
