Hotel with the best service.
Only stayed here for the one night but it was the best service I have ever had from a hotel and I stay at a lot with work. On my next trip to Chiang mai I will definitely use this hotel for my main stay. A goody bag was given to us when we returned at night and they gave us a free airport transfer service in the morning. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great hospitality !
This hotel has amazing hospitality. From the crazy multi course dinner to bringing snacks to your room. The staff helped us feel so comfortable and arranged tours for us flawlessly. This is an amazing place to stay for the price. It is s little outside the old city but we used grab very easily and never had a ride that was more than $5.00

Our stay was FANTASTIC - the hotel property was beautiful, clean and in an incredible location! The pool was nice and refreshing, however the best part was the hotel staff. Every single individual at the hotel was kind, professional and accommodating to our group of 30 people in every way possible. Communication with the hotel manager was impeccable! We will definitely be back!

The Empress is regal and inviting. Keep it up.
Attending conference centre nearby. Staff are friendly. Want to really commend the housekeeping team of ladies. Polite and asked me nicely when i want my room cleaned when i encountered them in the corridor. My room was spick and span. Pool was nice. Pool is nice. Very clean..sloping desig is unique. Only recommendation is to have an outdoor clock perhaps for those swimming to check the time. The clock at the bar is too small. Breakfast tasty and good variety, the staff very professional and clears plates fast. Hotel looks old from the facade but it is well maintained. The premier wing next door looks very elegant. Staff turndown service is nice. Flowers, goodie bag, really feel pampered. Walking distance to the night market but takes about 15 mins past a neighbourhood shopping centre. Enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back again.
