Kodchasri Thani Hotel Chiangmai3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed for a week in the Kodchasri Thani Chiang Mai and we were pleasantly surprised by it - the hotel is located in the Old Town of Chiang Mai, and it's within walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, bars and other conveniences. Staff is great - they really look after their guests and the property. The hotel is in good shape, and the common areas are maintained daily - as regular users of the pool, we found the level of maintenance and cleanliness way above average. But there's a couple of quirks in the Kodchasri Thani - as other reviewers have indicated, internet access is dismal. Breakfast is monotonous and bland -for a hotel of this category, this is a gap that can be easily solved. Overall, a very recommended stay in Chiang Mai.
This hotel has so much promise. As the one photo shows it's a rising star. A few tweaks could really bring up the rating. To a 4.5. The staff is very kind and always willing to assist. We had trouble with the wifi the entire 4 days we were there. They helped us reset it at least 30 times. They also helped us print out documents. 5 star for effort. 2 star for wifi actually working. The location was super. You walked out of the hotel and you were right in Old City. 5 star The breakfast was excellent and service was very good. 5 star Our room was nicely appointed and very spacious. The toilet was broken and we had to take the top off to flush it. We had the maintenance team there 2 times. They said it was fixed however .... we could not get it to flush. The sink leaked and they fixed that on the 1st visit. (Our closet door was broken too) 5 star for effort and 2 star because we couldn't use it properly. The bathroom was nice but it doesn't have an outlet in it and there is no other place to dry hair etc. Couldn't find other mirror in our room either. Could be common not to have outlets in the bathroom. 4 star Coffee and tea service worked well and I loved afternoon tea. Special detail for sure. 5 star There was a distinct odor in the lobby that was not palatable to us. No idea what it was but we didn't care for it. 2 star The grounds were very well kept and someone was always working on keeping spotless. 4 star Maybe we just had bad luck....
My wife was celebrating her birthday and we decided that a special dinner was warranted. We decided on this restaurant as it is within walking distance from our own hotel. The building looked opulent, the restaurant decor viewed through the windows was impressive. There are a couple of very high steps to negotiate before you step over the high door threshold. Greeted by a waitress and waiter. We had a choice of tables - the only customers in the restaurant. Meal and drinks menus presented promptly, napkins draped on our laps, and we perused the offerings. Ordered drinks, they waited at the bar until we were ready to order the meals and were then served. Our meals were served fairly promptly; my entree of Chiang Mai spicy sausage was delicious, the accompany vegetables were tongue burners. My pad Thai with prawns was tasty although I feel it had sat for a while while preparing my wife's meal. Three prawns included. My wife's sea bass was big, covered the entire plate/platter, she tried but admitted defeat as there was too much. However, she acknowledged that it was a lovely meal. A second round of drinks to finish. The dining room decor is charming, the background music was nice but repetitive, the football match on TV probably should have been televised elsewhere in the premises. We enjoyed our meal in solitary splendour, it was overall very enjoyable but we have enjoyed better at some of the local restaurants during the week.
I don't know where to start... this hotel is unique, intriguing and opulent. It is like staying in a museum! In fact, this hotel has a museum on site as well as a full Buddhist temple! The food is outstanding and the staff is first class. I will always stay here when in Chiang Mai!
We had lunch at the restaurant (part of this hotel) called Chaang Imm Restaurant and it was amazing. The decore throughout this quite large venue is exquisite, staff very friendly and helpful and the meal was to be recommended. I had the Balsamic Beef Salad, followed by Fried Banana with Icecream, cornflake topping and chocolate sauce - perfect combination. My partner had the Khao Klook Kapi and didn't leave a scrap. Meal prices range from 120 THB up to the high end choices, but not as expensive as I would have thought.
The staff is very friendly. The hotel is adorable with a nice pool, cute rooms, free breakfast, and wifi. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to town, restaurants, temples, etc. We were very happy with our stay!
Located in old city near lots of shopping and temples. Great location. Hotel staff will help with any directions. beautiful rooms and common areas. Excellent free breakfast makes the cost reasonable. Will be back!
we were collected from the hotel in a very nice vehicle. upon arrival we were pleased by what we saw. The staff very nice and helpful and the hotel itself is a little gem. The garden and pool are beautiful and the rooms are just as nice too. There was also a little rest room with lovely designed furniture in it and a little water feature going all the way round the outside with fish in it plus there were books for you to borrow. We had a room facing the beautiful pool and garden which are tended to by a gardener. The gym is small but adequate. The breakfast was very nice. Lots of choice and again the staff couldn't do enough for you. Didn't eat evening meals in, not a lot or choice and prices a bit high but I think it was assumed you would eat in one of the many restaurants outside. We were able to book trips from the hotel and the staff were more then happy to help. Rooms were kept immaculate and tended everyday. Beautiful hotel and would definitely go there again.
After a night at a terrible hotel (more like a hostel in disguise), we went in search for another hotel to stay. We walked to 3 other hotels and have the staff show us the rooms before choosing Kodchasri Thani. We got a good price for our room, which included a daily breakfast buffet. Every morning we will eat breakfast outside by the pool, which has many potted orchids of various colours. Our room was comfortable for 3 nights and quiet. Being near the Old Town made it easy for us to walk and explore this charming city. The front desk staff was helpful and pleasant.
Chaing mai We arranged for the hotel to meet us at the airport and they sent a nice air conditioning van so plenty of room for us and our four cases, they only charge 300 THB very good price, he also had cold flannels and a cold drink waiting for us a lovely touch. We arrived at the hotel that had not changed at all even down to the cats they had five years ago, the lady on reception was still there too. We were given rooms 105/ 106 these are ground floor with little courtyards with a table and chairs at the front. They are very large pretty rooms with a large walk in shower, the beds are on the hard side I would say and the rooms can hear every sound so good earplugs do help as the rooms I feel are in the best location, the noise is from the Chinese guests they don't know how to be quite when they return at night, but as most of the area close at 11pm so it's not late when they all return by midnight it's pretty quite. The rooms have a docking station for the old iPhones ( not good for us) and the TV doesn't have much you can watch in English. There is a kettle and tea and coffee in the rooms and a mini pay bar, they leave you two bottles of water per day free, the others you have to pay for. There is a small gym if it's what your looking for with air condition in it, the swimming pool is small but the place is like a spa area, with a small pool, gym, small restaurant with seating outside overlooking the pool area, towels and shower gels should you need them, they only have around 8 sun beds but as this is a city, most guests are out and about so we always got a subbed, the hotel need to replace some of them as they are broken. The area is covered in lovely pots plants and lantons hanging from the trees so indelicate and relaxing. My main concern is if you have small children there are a set of small steps that lead to a small balcony that looks over the pool with a small wooden decking area, this only has a chain across and is NOT safe for any children, they could very easily fall and be badly injured or at worst be killed. There is a open area at the back of the hotel with comfortable seats to chill out and read books, left by other guests, there are two apple computers for you to use as you require. There is a little moat around this with fish in to look at. There is also a small museum in this area open all the time for guests to look round, it's only small and contains things from there culture. The hotel is in the walled city so where everything happens, lots of bars and massage places, a massage is a must! Don't think they are seedy as they are not they are amazing, I had a foot massage every night and it was only around £4 for an hour. There are lots of local 7/11 stores for drinks ice creams and anything you may need, there is also places like Boots and Mc Donald's if you find your missing home We found a nice restaurant called Hot chilli which we managed to find and spent the rest of the week eating there, if you come out of the hotel turn right walk to the end of the road, turn left and your there it's about 10 mins walk, the prices are around £25 per couple with a drink, it's the drinks that cost money everywhere so be careful. Try and visit for the flower festival this is so lovely they decorate the whole park with fresh flowers and you can smell them as soon as you walk in, it's all free and you will be truly amazed, on the Sunday they have a parade this is a must it goes on for around two hours with everything from bands to beauty queens on floats along with all the flowers, the whole city stops and people come to watch.
