Great hotel, but really starting to look dated.
This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel within a year. Both years have been for a conference which the hotel handled spectacularly. The food was great and the entire conference went without a hitch.
I was also very pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade on my room when I checked in.
The last time I wrote my long review, I was unable to comment on the pool or fitness area. The pool is very nice, a large pool which catches the sun almost all day. There are perhaps not as many loungers as one would like, but it shouldn’t be an issue on a regular day.
The fitness area is, unfortunately, very dated. Some of the equipment doesn’t work, there is no traditional wet area with a sauna and such connected directly to the fitness center. Like the rooms, this looks worse than it is and is fully functional.
The staff was brilliant as always, and they were more than happy to accommodate my late checkout until 3 pm, which was very generous.
If you are thinking of staying here whilst in Chiang Mai, then I don’t think you would have too many complaints. The hotel and the rooms simply need modernizing with a makeover.
