Day 117: Easy Rider

Woke up around 730 and felt slightly dehydrated, to the point where I didn't feel like breakfast but settled for OJ and coffee. Headed out about 0800 with a firm destination in mind: the guesthouse round the corner rents scooters; yes they ask for your passport but thousadns of people do this every year so I was just going to swallow my guts and...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Empress Hotel Chiang Mai

    What a host.

    from

    I recently stayed at the Empress with my partner and from the minute we arrived, we received excellent service. The lobby and reception staff really made us feel welcomed. The hotel although an older one now, is in excellent condition and very clean too. The buffet breakfast is filling with plenty to chose from. The rooms are well appointed, clean carpets, bathrooms and bedding. Although the Empress is a little way out from the night market (approximately 10 min walking) it is still worthwhile staying here. The gardens and the floral arrangements within the hotel are fantastic. We would both stay here again. It's good value for money and nothing seems to be too much trouble for the staff to organise.

    Decent location, nice room - no mosquitoes!!!

    from

    Stayed here thru part of a tour. Lobby area is very nice - large rose arrangement. Hotel room was very nice also. We scored with a king size bed - an oddity in Thailand it seems. Room decor was very nice. Tuktuk drive to night market was 20 baht. Would definitely stay here again.

    Moderate old hotel in the city centre of chiang mai

    from

    good for a stay over in chiang mai, located centrally and easy accessible with taxi or tuk tuk. old rooms, not renovated, very small bathrooms. small pool, not heated and full of chlorine. very moderate. lot of tour groups stay at this hotel for it's nice price.

    New Year - Great Hotel

    from

    This was not the normal kind of hotel that I would go for as I prefer the more local hotel style rather than a high rise. However - the Empress Hotel was an excellent choice of hotel.

    Nice stay at Empress

    from

    We found the Empress to be more than adequate in every regard. They provided Christmas decor, activities, and entertainment, to the extent that Buddhists understand Christmas... Nevertheless, they had a late night Christmas eve buffet which we found to be festive and delicious. Afterward, the Elvis impersonator was better than most American versions. They provided connecting rooms. The bath facilities were very "American". Abundant offerings at the buffet breakfast. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable, and an easy stroll to plenty of shopping and dining. Helpful, English-speaking staff.

    A reasonable base to explore a lovely town

    from

    The Empress is a good average hotel with clean rooms, friendly staff. It's not in a particularly scenic part of town, about 15 mins walk from the old town but with plenty of tuk-tuks. It is close to the night market. There is lots of good local eating. Chiang Mai has a lovely feel, people are friendly, its easy to get around and there are lots of activities. One of our recommended bars is the Fai-Yen Cafe on Moon Muang Road, which serves good food and is used by a mixture of ex-pats, tourists and locals. Also has great music. Great for shopping with some more unusual clothing and jewellery shops on Tha Pae Road. We were there for the Loy Katong festival (full moon in Oct/Nov) which is a marvellous festival - the equal of the Notting Hill Carnival.

    Terrific!

    from

    What a great value! This place is close enough to take a tuk-tuk to anywhere in the city and far enough away to not be bombarded. If you like to walk it is about a 10 minute brisk walk to the night bazaar.

    Gracious, grand hotel with well designed, spacious bedroom. Well maintained pool deck, and exceptional Chinese themed restaurant, amongst others within the complex. We were so impressed with food onsite, that we didn't eat anywhere else during the 3 days we were here!
