"This is my first time at this hotel and it’s the best of the 3 hotels I have stayed in Chiang Rai. The location is very good in the centre of the traditional part of Chiang Rai. There are plenty of Thai and foreign restaurants nearby. The Night Bazaar is only 2 minutes’ walk and these markets are great affordable shopping with cheap eating options. The room was very pleasant and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is great with much variety. The staff are friendly and helpful. The shuttle to the airport is only 100 THB per person. The swimming pool is big and deep however, it is not suitable for non-swimmers and children. Even the shallow end is deeper than a young child. Supervision is essential. The hotel is popular for tour groups which means that the tourism industry sees this as value for money, but also means it can be very busy, especially with booming Chinese tourism. I have nothing to be disappointed about with my stay here."

"Stayed here for a second time, and it still is for me the best in Chiang Rai. It is centrally located, rooms are clean and well maintained. The only downside I experienced was, we arrived early in the day, but we weren't allowed check-in until about 1PM. They kept telling us that because we booked thru Agoda, check-in time is strictly 2PM. Nothing really bad because that's what it says on print. They allowed to keep our luggage so we can go around town. But, it would have been a nice touch if we were allowed to check-in earlier, the hotel wasn't really fully booked because it's off season for travel now. I wonder, if we booked through the B2 app, would we have been allowed to check-in earlier? Perhaps... In summary though, the value for money is really way above board, especially because we got a discounted price. Will definitely stay again here next time I'm in Chiang Rai."

"Greatest thing was Suvanna, the manager. She was extremely warm, friendly and helpful. I also really appreciated her English speaking skills. 2nd best was the pool that is long enough for laps. Poolside furniture was not very good. My room was very clean but the cleaner they use is toxic. I only let them clean my room once because the smell lingered for days. Breakfast buffet same everyday, mostly asia. Pancakes, French toast, peanut butter occasionally would have been nice. All in all, little pricey but nice place to stay."

"Room service from Tid Doi Tid Din was by far the worst thing we ate in Chiang Rai. Breakfast buffet was great for a breakfast buffet. There is excellent food in the area, but there is a message/guideline posted requesting that guests don't bring in food, which was disturbing and offensive considering the quality of the room service. The staff were cordial and professional. They took a while to get around to requests at times, but at other and more important tasks, they were very prompt. The room was close to immaculate and much more impressive than it appeared on the website. The pool and view were not impressive."

"Newly renovated hotel, still in the process of preparations to get fully run. The room l stay is clean and nice, TV not functioning well due to connecting issue, some time you get the channel and sometimes you don’t. Housekeeping must be more alert when doing makeup room, Best quickly get the makeup’ room sign ready. I not use to the bathroom with glass, even is lightly mate cover. A little disappointed during new year evening, lounge beverage was close way to early before count down. I have to go out and buy some beer to celebrate at my room. Hotel staff are friendly and nice. Beautiful restaurant, breakfast can be improved with live stations for fried eggs and others. Overall, l still have a good time in Chiang-Rai. "

"Family room suite has spacious space, worth the price. A 7-foot King size bed is perfect for family who has to sleep with kids. No floor stepping which would be dangerous for toddlers. Check in/out service is fast. Breakfast is good for everyone. A lot of selections, changing everyday. Gyms is also good but close at 8 pm is too early for nowadays's trend. Kids' club has a big ball house which is heaven for every kids (Small toddlers to the early adolescent!) It's free, though! This hotel is probably the only hotel in Chiang Rai which has a good kids' club with ball house. Anyway, hotel should provide attending staff, at least to control kids'play which always has various age groups at the same time. Another toys are mostly broken. Should be replaced and get maintenance. Swimming pool is also awesome for kids. A pool bar is also available. (It may be even a lot better if there is a curly water slide.) In-room amenity is well equipped."

"This hotel is a great pick in Chiang Rai. The location is very convenient, close to the clock tower, a lot of restaurants and a market. The room was bright (only one small window but good light and all in white) and the bathroom newly renovated. The bed was huge and very comfortable. However, the room was not very spacious but enough for our stay and amount of luggage. We also really enjoyed having a water boiler and coffee/tee, which they refilled daily. We did not have any meals included, so we can't rate the food/dining. The staff speaks english and was very helpful, they helped us out with a map and organised a taxi for us to take us to the bus station. We highly recommend this hotel in Chiang Rai."

"I stayed at this comfortable hotel on my last evening in Thailand, and was incredibly impressed. The rooms are just as comfortable as any midrange hotel in Europe or North America, and at a fraction of the price ($10). The staff were welcoming and friendly, and handed out free candies to guests upon arrival. The hotel is located around a 10-minute walk from the Night Bazaar and the heart of sleepy Chiang Rai. The bedding and rooms were extremely comfortable, and though the bathrooms were spartan and featured those pesky electronic water heaters, they were perfectly acceptable. If you find yourself in Chiang Rai, this is the perfect place to hang your hat - it's almost impossible to not enjoy your stay here."
