The check in staff were all excellent and helpful. We arrived to be told that we had been "upgraded" to a city view but the view is much better looking out over the me Kong in to Laos, so didn't really feel like an upgrade. We got to our room and it was like a Sauna, we tried to get... More

We stayed for 1 night in this hotel, we booked it last minute on line because we didn't plan anything ahead. We got a suite on the riverside. During the evening we had a lovely view on the river and we hopes on some nice views during sunrise. However this didn't happen due to cloudy weather. The beds where good... More

We have just returned from spending 3 nights here. I'd read some very negative reviews & was worried about what to expect. I had no need to worry. Staff were extremely attentive & could not have been more helpful. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were fine for the price paid. Breakfast was included in the price paid for rooms &... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here when it first opened. The room was immaculate, the views of the sunrise over the Mekong spectacular. En-suite was very nice. Air-conditioning worked great. Breakfast was unremarkable but adequate like most places in Thailand but dining on the terrace overlooking the river at any time is very enjoyable. Service was a bit disjointed as... More

Looks like it once was a very nice hotel however now looks old and could do with a new lick of paint. Rooms are a good size and are clean. Riverside rooms look across the Mekong river and a flood lit Laos border. There is also a Casino on Laos side that lets off fireworks at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm.... More

The view from our third floor room is indeed splendid, especially at dawn. The room itself is spacious ( room 310) with a large bathroom area ( shower and rest room are separate...like in most hotels in France). A bathtub is strategically located in the middle of the bathroom area...a view of the Laos river bank. Small refrigerator, TV, mini... More

The Serene is located near most of the attractions. Our room on the 3rd floor was very nice and had a beautiful view over the Mekong and Golden Triangle. It was great to sit on the balcony and watch the river traffic and sunset. Although there is a restaurant in the hotel there is also a nice local restaurant just... More

First of all, the positive: stunning location right on the river and within easy walking distance to great food and site, friendly staff. Now, the negatives outweigh the positives: air con didn't cool the room, t.v. worked only sporadically, breakfast included a plate of fruit that had obviously cut the day before as it was dried out and, finally, no...

Serene at Chiang Rai is located in the Thai village of Sop Ruak - also spelled Sob Ruak - by the Mekong River about 400 metres south of the Golden Triangle tripoint area, i.e. the place where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. The location is very suitable for day trips to Laos and Myanmar and the staff is very friendly.... More
