“Good hotel right by the market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

Overall, enjoyed my time at the hotel. It was convenient having the market right next door. Other sites in the town are too far away.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Arrived after a 15.5 hour train journey to be shown (by a really nice bag guy) to our twin room. We booked a non smoking double. They said there was nothing else so I went to reception and the chap came up with another room with a double. We went to our new room and it stank of cigarettes! We were so tired we just went to bed.
In the morning we complained again and were told they have nothing and to come back at 3 to see 'if' we could change. Being in Chiang Mai for only 3 days, we didn't want to waste a day by having to be back at the hotel! We complained again to the nice young chap on reception, but the older lady cut us off by telling him to get the manager (we assume, don't know as she spoke in Thai) The manager didn't really say much, just came up with a room on the 16th floor. So it all could have been avoided right?! I just don't think they really care about bookings much. We'd booked our room 5 days or so before going. The room on the 16th floor had Thai women coming and going at all ours of day and night, and they even knocked on our door at 2am and 6am one morning??? Something weird is going on! Didn't feel too safe.
The women on reception looked at my girlfriend everyday like she was a piece of trash and the men outside the hotel looked at her like a piece of meat! Quite used to it, but it was a joke coming from hotel staff! All in all, very unprofessional. We didn't even want to hand the key in when we left for the day as we'd have to speak to reception staff when we returned. Breakfast is good, but busy. Good location by the night market. The price is good though.
Would never go back and didn't even want to while we were staying there!

The hotel has a good location, close to night market, the river and the restaurant. The staff are friendly but the hotel might seem a bit runned down. I was Tour leader in Chiang Mai in 1997-2000 and there has been only little improvement in the rooms, but compare to the price I paied then i am more than happy. Thanks to Khun Win, the Bell man, who is still there after so many years.
Absolutely a hotel i can recommed to allm who want to explore Chiang Mai and not have high demand for comfort or luxuary but just want a place to sleep. You will feel like home.

We stayed at this Hotel from 2-5th November.

The location is unbeatable.. u walk out of the hotel and you are in night Bazar.

The price is terrific value for money at 899 THB.

The Hotel is old and aging but nice and clean. no musty smells at all.

Roof top BBQ has live music and limited but good food.

Staff is friendly. They gave us a late check out at 4.00 PM and also threw in the complimentary breakfast on the last day.

Definitely recommended.

I stayed at Pornping in the low season October and it cost me 500 baht a night which is very cheap for a hotell with such facilities. Nice pool and a generall high standard even though it seems to be an older hotel. 2 Nightclubs under the hotell so some room might hear the noise at night time. About 5 min walk from Night Bazaar market.
