We stayed here twice whilst traveling around the Chiang Mai area. The location is fantastic being right in the heart of Chiang Mai and surrounded by numerous night markets. The rooms were large and clean with the only negative being quite a hard bed. Breakfast was extensive and the pool was very large and well laid out. Walking distance (or a very… Read more

Walking distance (or a very short tuk tuk ride) to the old city as well as numerous other markets and temples. Read less

The room is spacious, but rather old. The receptionist should be trained to be more friendly. Quite a selection of breakfast but mostly Asian stuff, but very minimum selection for the Western appetite.

I rated the Duangtawan Hotel based on my overall view. I will say its worth staying there but a few things to note. We had a superior room with a king bed overlooking the pool. It was a nice clean large room. We wanted a higher floor but the only available were queen beds. We should have looked at one of those rooms because the king was like sleeping on stone. My only regret was not changing rooms. But that is our fault not the hotels. The Duangtawan is very nice, clean, great staff, but could use a little freshening up. The rooms are good, but the carpets on the hallway floors are very stained and not reflective of the rest of the hotel. The pool is nice, very large and clean. We had breakfast included. It was good with many choices. Abundant seating. No issues finding a table. The restaurant is large enough that you can have a table without fathers around you if you want. The only issue I found is they make too many eggs ahead and though placed under lights, they are not proper heat lamps and the eggs are cold. They will warm them for you if asked but we all know that doesn't make an egg better only a bit over cooked. I always asked for fresh cooked and it was done but reluctantly. Or just get an omelet. Those have to be made to order. Location is awesome. Easy walk to markets and many restaurants. The night street market is just down the street including Anusarn Market. Read less

I would highly recommend the Riverside House as an alternative! Read less
