I spend a lot of time in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Many times while crossing the iron bridge by foot (located on the west side of the Ping River about 100-200 meters south of the Diamond Riverside Hotel, I see a significant DISGUSTING discharge of brown to jet black water that runs into the Ping River at the SW corner of...

I booked 5 rooms for two nights but we changed our mind and stayed at this terrible hotel for one night only.everything in the hotel is outdated and below the expectations of any traveler around the world; the rooms furniture are super tired and the colors becomes dirty. The windows curtains are half closing . The water in the showers...

Not as bad as the reviews might suggest as yes it is old but it is still great value for money. For $25 per night for 2 people with breakfast and a river Ping view and a short walk to the Night Market we actually enjoyed it. Yes it is an old hotel but the staff were friendly and the...

Yes, this a older hotel, that said it was once a grand hotel. Highrise with lots of open lobby area. It is set in a large area right on the river, steps away from the Night Bazaar. The rooms ( mine) had been painted and new carpet and the views over the river and surrounds were magical. The room furniture...

I had read some reasonable reviews on Expedia and other sites, but pretty shoddy ones on Trip Advisor. This hotel is like a grand, elegant old lady who needs a new set of flash lingerie and some cool outer garments. If the owner of this establishment wants to contact me, I can give him/her/them some really good ideas for making...

This was the last hotel I stayed in before returning to California. This hotel is central to the night bazaar and I love the location. There are also massage places near that aren't very expensive. I highly recommend this hotel. I miss Thailand.

We were moved to this hotel after ours was overbooked. We only lasted 10 mins. The lobby looked nice and clean but once we got to the room it was a different story. The carpet was old and dirty, furniture dusty. Worst of all of this was we found multiple bed bugs on the bed. We asked for our money...

Room was good size, had a bath and shower Breakfast was a terrible experience, typical Asian mad rue, all elbows queue cutting, food ran out and I went out to find breakfast around streets. Last resort type of place

Old hotel with no touch of class. Rooms are pretty outdated including the TV set. Need to refurbish in order to remain competitive in the market.The carpet stinks and air conditioning (being centralised) is poor. I will not recommend other than its location.
