We were still at home and we’ve already dreamed about staying at PN.
A little bit afraid of taking the girls to a boutique hotel, but we decided to stay for 3 days at PN in Chiang Mai and it all worked like heaven.
 
We had our day trips already planned with TRAVEL HUB (nice service, good guide and driver and truly cheaper than the other operators), we spent all day visiting wonderful places and temples or having elephant safaris and river bamboo rafting, but at afternoon, we could rest on that stunning and peaceful pool.
 
We didn’t need to worry about the girls, because the staff immediately asks them to join on some handmade candlelight, which they offer to their Gods. And they were delighted to join them and learned how to do that.
 
The PN is a quite piece of art – a British colonial architecture. The rooms are beautiful as well the bathrooms. Well done it really looks like heaven and the view from the pool are quite inspiring and very relaxing.
 
The service was top notch and the staff was always smiling all the time, which was contagious.  
 
We went to Chiang Mai during their Songkran Festival and it was an unusual experience to see all people getting wet on the streets. The girls loved it and of course we got wet also. Incredible, but at the room we had a full kit to get wet – water guns, waterproof wallet, etc – so we used it and it was so fun! When we returned at the hotel, at the entrance they provided us towels. I loved all that little details!!

The rest was also very good: breakfast, food, hotel location (20 min to the night market). Nothing to say: just go there.
 
We had dinner out all days: we went to THE RIVERSIDE restaurant (as recommended on TA) and to THE GALLERY restaurant (also recommended on TA) and we loved the food, the prices and their ambience.

We had a BREATHTAKING stay at Ping Nakara and we highly recommend the PING NAKARA and for some moments I’m still there…

This hotel is gorgeous - the rooms are very big and furnish beautifully. The staff are so lovely and really helpful. The staff at the tour desk in the foyer were excellent and helped us decide on the best options and fit a lot in during our two day stay.
Breakfast is great - they make your eggs/pancakes etc to order.
Great value for money.
The spa was lovely, but as with all hotel spas it was more expensive than others in the area.
Good location, not far from the night markets.

We planned on only staying for 5 nights in Chiang mai and the Ping but as the floods in the south forced us to stay in the north we decided to stay at the Ping Nakara. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for and we thought it was worth every penny. We did look at moving on after our 5 day stay but to be honest we couldn't find anywhere that could match the hotel and not wanting to be disappointed decided to stay and do lots of excursions.
The hotel is a beautiful piece of architecture and designed buy the same person who designed the mandarin (we where told) it is a small hotel and never felt full had it been full Then the limited pool area beds would have been an issue, but i guess people travelling to The ping are mainly short stay with the mind of Site seeing. We on the other hand spent a lot of time in the hotel.
The service was Impeccable, Each day we would receive Cold hand towels by the pool and My wife was given a china bell for service. ( so decadent we didn't use it as we felt embarrassed).
Our room which we upgraded to was the best room they had and it didn't disappoint the bed and pillow menu was lovely.
Food. well we certainly ate well in Chiang mai city and a lot cheaper than the south but we decided to eat in the restaurant on most occasions purely because of the presentation and quality at a ver reasonable price. Average price per course was 160 Baht which in thai standards is pricey but european is budget. I would say the same meal in the UK would be 3 times the price ( Now then Ping nakara don't put your prices up now).
I dont agree with a lot of the comments on TA with ref to the road noise. We where there for Songran and we didnt a thing as there is a Bathroom area and balcony between the room and the outdoors, incidentally can be shut off.
Would we recommend this hotel? Definitely worth the extra pennies. Would I recommend a long stay? well yes if you can completely relax and plan lots of trips out.
Ping Nakara. Thankyou for a wonderful stay and we will be back only if you promise to change the music once in a while by the pool..

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our people really appreciate your comments regarding our services and our architecture which is designed based on the Lanna Colonial style that was built around Chiang Mai a century ago.

It was our intention for making the price of food inexpensive, that way, our guests can enjoy our authentic Thai food as often as they like. It is also true for the affordable price of the beverages, and, as you may notice we also provide unlimited complimentary mineral water in every guest's room. So, please be assured that we won’t raise our prices on our food and drinks. :)

We wish you and your family all the best, and I hope that you can come back to stay with us again soon.

Kind regards,
Chairat

First time in Chiang Mai and we chose what turned out to be the perfect boutique hotel. Very well maintained with excellent service - one of the nicest and friendliest staff ever. It does not have a gym or too many restaurants but hey, idea is to eat out anyway! It has a well stocked welcoming liberary and plenty of corridor seating a la old colonial mansion style. Highly reccomended!!

This is a great little hotel. It is quite new but has a solid, classy old feel about it with lovely wide staircases and balconies and very nice rooms. Beds, in the Asian style, a little hard.

The staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. I particularly liked that the owner introduced himself and asked if we were enjoying our stay.

It's a short walk from the night market, but out of the way enough to be quiet. There's also a nice pool to relax in after a day out in the heat with a cute restaurant right next to it.
