Diamond Riverside Hotel
Ranked #308 of 388 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed 5 April 2015

My husband and I spent 4 days there at the end of Feb this year, chosen because of the room rate 17 eur with breakfast and the building position. Nice but tired building, a bit dark in the loby,an outdoor pool, hotel seen much better days, elevators work, room clean but could be much cleaner with so little effort (nothing that ajax can`t do, mostly in the bathroom), no WiFi in the room (there is a WiFi in the lobby though), TV few channels but who needs TV in Chiang Mai !?!, bed and linen average (clean but little worn out), perfect incredible panorama room view over Ping river from 11th floor, breakfast mediocre, staff attentive (asked for late check out, no problem!). Close to action- Night Bazaar,Tapae gate, restaurants and lots of bars with live music. Don`t forget the room rate which is more than acceptable, let`s be honest! Would stay there again!

Room Tip: All standard rooms, choose a Ping side, high floor, incredible sun rise view. Heard the city view...

I did not want to write a review, but since cockroaches are keeping me awake, i have nothing better to do. Usually i can deal with a bad hotel, but when roaches walk over you, yeah thats right, while trying to sleep, thats where i go crazy. The breakfast i cant even describe because thia morning a found sonething slimy in my coffe. No TV, no wifi. The pool is dirtier than some of Bangkoks canalas. Stay away fron this place.

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

Room Tip: If you must stay here ask for a river view

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 invited guest a cockroach! Breakfast was ample but don't have the warm milk.

Room Tip: Try ans get a room overlooking the river.

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 dusty windows of the room. 5 of 7 lamp bulbs did not work neither did the electricity to the old tv, this was fixed though.
All springs in one side of the bed was non-existent. Well, then it's more romantic to use just one side of the bed. Mostly loacal warm dished for breakfast, toast machine out of order, but there was bread and jam preventing me from starving too much. haha, I must learn one get what one pay for - I just couldn't imagine it could be this tragicomic and ready for condamnation.
