“Nice hotel, but nothing special.”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Nice rooms, but shower was leaking. Overall a nice hotel: nice lobby, swimming pool, fitness center. The bar is definitely not recommended; they can't prepare a decent cocktail and it takes ages. I ordered a bloody mary but it tasted like tomato juice.

Be aware that the Ratilanna is run by Thai people so is the choice for top local events rather than the foreign owned hotels. Of our 4 day holiday 3 were taken up with the marriage of a celebrity who had a father at senior levels of the Military. I walked into the hotel to see several uniformed soldiers with machine guns,I got used to walking past them for 3 of my 4 days.The hotel is small and two of the main areas near the pool were taken up with wedding settings,it was not hidden away, the microphone was being tested and used from 3pm in the afternoon 'til late at night. I was not relaxed in this holiday which was a pity as it was my first holiday in ages. I was also angry that I had to pay 100% before arrival and yet the hotel had not had the curtessy to tell me that this event would be disruptive, the letter was in our room on arrival.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rati Lanna. Very new, clean and modern but with the character of Thailand everywhere. The room was spacious, huge bathroom, and lovely furniture on the balcony to make sitting out a real pleasure. The huge pool was great, and the service was good at the pool bar, and restaurant. A great buffet breakfast too. Only 5 minutes by Tuk Tuk to the night market - or to go into town to where there are lots of restaurants. Out of the madness, but not too far to be a pain to get to where the action in.

We stayed 6 nights in Rati Lanna Riverside and feel like a VIP the minutes after we arrived. The staff took us a through tour to hotel facilities and explained all details we need in a short time. Hotel and rooms are very well decorated. Though food is barely enough choice in the breakfast but at this price it is worth for the money.

We are specially impressed by the Front Office Manager who took good care of my daughter and one of my friend during their emergency stop at a nearby hospital. He arranged car and explained very details in Thai language to hospital reception. After that, he even sent a basket of rose to our rooms personally.

This is probably the best hotel after my 20 years of worldwide travel / business trip.

It would definitely be a big loss if you come to Chiang Mai but not staying here.

Stayed at this hotel in January 2012.....large, beautiful room with great view of the Ping River and much of Chiang Mai. The service was excellent....our breakfast buffet was quite good and we had a delicious dinner at the hotel for a reasonable price. The only drawback was that we were about 3 kilometers from the Night Market....too far to walk. The hotel is also quite close to the Airport but we never heard a sound.
