Start with the plaudits.. a fantastic view over the River Ping,but just about everything else about the hotel was sadly lacking, miserable reception staff, strange reception area, wifi was non existent, rooms were very tired as was all the hotel.. I wish I could write something nice but even the breakfast was absolutely terrible

We stayed therefore Loy Kaithong and so it was perfect for what we wanted with the city being full and we could walk and see the parade and launch our Kaithong but - the hotel was not in a good state. It was clean but the sheets were grey and the bathroom needed a good refurbishment, also we had an...

Very cheap due to ghost rumours, although a hounting might have improved our stay. Yes, it is cheap and yes it is very very old and have had absolutely no maintenance for the last 25 years. Hotel staff dressed in their own clothes and joggingsuits. A very green algae-filled swimmingpool. Worn and torn interior. Someone had been writing on the...

My expectations of a budget hotel aren't high. I've stayed in some pretty questionable accommodations in Thailand but I've never once left a bad review. You get what you pay for but I wouldn't stay at this place if it were free. We booked four nights and paid in advance through an online travel site. The price was low but...

After reading some of the reviews about the hotel I booked the hotel with trepidation for 7 days from 20 January. When I arrived the greeting was quite off hand but did not take too long. There was no assistance to my 5th floor room however there are three guests lifts. The room was dated but quite large with uninterrupted...

So due to my procrastination on finding a hotel in Chiang Mai, we were left with very few choices, and we took a chance on this. The place was cheap and well-situated close to the river and the night market. The place wasn't as dirty as some of the other reviewers noted, but still was somewhat grimy and had a...

The Diamond Riverside Hotel must have been a great hotel in its day. At present it is a very economical hotel - about $20 per night. Expect what you pay for, it was relatively clean, a reasonable buffet breakfast plus it is located down-town close to the river and local markets. Walking distance to the walled city.
