10/10 Exceptional

Two nights in December
Our request for a higher level room was met and we had a nice view from our bright and comfortable sitting room. The room had lots of character and lovely decor. We especially liked the cleanliness and central location yet the stay was peaceful since th hotel is set ba k a bit from the main road. This hotel had nice touches - we received a welcome package with snacks as it was the Christmas holiday period. Very good value for the money. We would definitely stay here again.

8/10 Very good

A good hotel in a good area.
This was a 5 night stay in a 4 star hotel conveniently located near one of the main night markets in Chiang Mai, within a 15-minute walk to Old Town and 45min to the NewTown. Rooms were comfortable but the beds are a bit on the hard side. The included buffet breakfast has very limited options and is not of 4/5 star standard, if you are a vegetarian then you are pretty limited. Really surprisingly poor dinner menu consisting of pizzas and a small selection of basic thai dishes. We were given a 'goody-bag' on check in which was a nice surprise and made use of the pool in the hotel's premier wing. Overall, staff were good but the hotel would benefit from an improved menu at breakfast and dinner.

Very Hospitable and Kind
The stay has been one of the most pleasant experience I had. The staff of the hotel were all very hospitable and kind. They were very accomdating to all our requests especially in relation to our grandmother. The food for breakfast are very good too. But really the people in Empress Hotel were the best. I would surely love to comeback given the chance later on.
