“Decent hotel”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

The hotel is out of town and in a quiet, non tourist area. The room is huge although the furniture looks tired. Swimming pool is good. Breakfast has plenty of choice. The highlights are the hotel's 8pm shuttle bus to night market and every hour shuttle bus to Central World shopping mall. Our room package included airport pick up and transfer to the Royal Flora exhibition. There are a 7-Eleven shop and a local bank nearby. You should try to exchange the money at the local bank as they offered very good rate compared to the hotel. There is a restaurant named Riverhouse within 500m which served good food, live pop music but the services was slow. Additionally, you can hop on to the shuttle bus to Central World to enjoy food there. There are more than enough restaurants at Central World foodcourt. In summary, we enjoyed Holiday Inn Chiang mai.

On a recent visit to ChiangMai we stayed here for three nights. Had read reviews on TripAdvisor and was aware that the property is old. And found that its really quite old- it needs a makeover...We liked the location. Though its away from main areas, you are near to night market and airport. Traffic is really bad in CM so its kind of disadvantage if you have to move to another part of the city. Out of three rooms booked, we were allotted one suit, a quite a big room. We had a good view from the suit, actually saw some good fireworks during new year celebration at riverfront from our room!!! We were on 5th floor, but better to be on higher floors to enjoy the view. Room was clean and beds were good, Holiday Inn style. Rooms are of very typical old style with some odd arrangements and furniture matching with some odd taste. It also needs some better planning during next renovation... Be aware that many rooms have two single beds, and not easy to put them together...
Staff was quite helpful, and knew English well. The concierge people helped a lot as we were having our own car and took their advice to move around. Housekeeping was equally good. Had some good choice for vegetarian breakfast, but it was very much of the same dishes every day. You have some good food options around the hotel and near night market so not a major issue.
Hotel provides wi-fi with a charge. I would reckon that its not a "market" practice nowadays to charge for internet connectivity, something the hotel management should immediately change. Hotel provides some free shuttle services to nearby places including a mall. Since we had our own cars, did not use it but may be helpful at times.

Room Tip: Book the rooms on higher floors.

Went to Changmai recently and stayed at the Holiday Inn. Was taken aback when we went into the room. It looked so 70s with green walls and well faded green carpets(actually all the upholstery is green). The room is however very clean, The showering area needs to be revamped as it is kinda narrow and dim. The springs in the mattress was jabbing my ribs and squeaky. The elevators are slow esp in the morning. Takes a good while before one can get into the lift. The breakfast is pretty filing but the menu gets rotated every two days. Would not stay in this particular hotel the next time I return to Changmai.

We hosted a business training conference here. The hotel is good about setting up conference and meeting rooms and there is lots of space for small to medium meetings. The WIFI (you have to pay for it separately) is poor to non-existent in the conference rooms , so be aware and make wired arrangements if you need WIFI in the conference rooms. The food in restaurant is average. Breakfast is good, lunch and dinner just ok. The Chinese restaurant on second floor was a disappointment. Hotel staff are all friendly and eager to please (this was a plus). Conclusion is that this is fine for a meeting or conference, but I would pick somewhere different for holiday stay.

Room Tip: River View is not worth paying extra for

Nice hotel, nice staff, was upgraded to a suite, but the hotel is in need of an update, the furninshings in the room are all a bit tired, ts also a bit out of the way from the central action in Chiange Mai, so if you want to be in the midst of everything, go elsewhere, if you dont mind a bit of a walk in and out (and its safe enough for that) or a short tut tut journey, you will be OK

Room Tip: be a priority club member

Spent a week here with our four children and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The breakfast was delicious, rooms spacious, all six of us could have easily shared one room. There is so much to do around the city. This specific hotel is a bit out of the way but that is ok. Only trouble was the long wait at the elevators and the huge tour groups that descended in the weekend.

I have just checked out. It's a bit far to city center, but it's very easy to find tuktuk in the front of hotel. Its 100 THB to night market. Rooms are spacious, but the bathroom seems old. Breakfast and service is very good. The staff is extremely helpfull.
