  • An Alternative to Chiang Mai's Tourst Traps

    by

    We chose this hotel on the basis of it being a member of the Amari franchise and were not disappointed, staying for almost 2 weeks.

    By Chiang Mai standards the hotel is ancient - built around 1970 - and is well away from the popular tourist haunts of the Night Market and the Thapae Gate, thus if you want to be in the centre of the tourist action, this is not for you. It is situated on the corner of two main roads, one the increasingly trendy - among young, middle class Thais and students from CMU - Nimannaheim Road. Unlike more modern hotels however, it has large gardens and road noise is not generally a problem.

    Rooms are good though in part starting to show their age and could do with some refurbishment, hence the rating, but very clean. Breakfast is up to the usual Amari standards, and can be eaten inside or outside all food being overseen by a German chef. Ask him how much his aged mother loves living in Thailand, after her only son persuaded her to move to Chiang Mai!

    Dinner is available in an Italian restaurant on site, but with so many eating opportunities either in Nimmanaheim Road or along Huay Kaew Road, to suit every palate from Thai to Mexican to Indian to Burgers, do not bother. Bar prices are high as would be expected.

    There are two swimming pools, one of which suffers from road noise as well as shadow from the buildings. The other is situated amidst the pleasant gardens and is much preferred. Note that ice creams are much cheaper from the 7-11 or Tesco Lotus Express shops a few yards away in Nimannaheim Road.

    The city itself can easily be reached by flagging down a Songthaew, and is cheaper than the hotel minibus, unless you haggling skills are really bad!

    Unique Quality: You are made to feel special here, from the moment you receive a welcome drink and ice cold towel. A nice touch is that the staff are expected to recognise guests staying for more than a few days - look for the rogues gallery of guest's pictures in the back office. Those staying a little longer are invited to a party held twice a month by the helpful Dutch manager and his staff, an opportunity to hat to the management team, meet the chef and others, as well as have a lovely, free buffet. I have never stayed in another hotel where the comfort of guests was so genuinely important to everybody.

    If you get an opportunity to see Wat Prathet Doi Suthep at night from the roof restaurant, do take it. The brightly lit statue of the Buddha seems to float in mid air against the black of Doi Suthep mountain. The effect is not anything like as stunning from street level.

    Directions: North west of the city centre, but with restaurants in the area. Don't miss the genuine night market a few hundred yards up Huay Kaew Road, heading away from the city and towards the university and the zoo. You'll find some genuine bargains there.

    Chiang Mai, the rose of the north, is a city steeped in tradition. Decorated throughout in local Thai handicrafts and artifacts, the Amari Rincome Hotel is the ideal place from which to explore this fascinating region of northern Thailand.

    Amari Rincome Hotel was one of the first hotels, I stayed at in Thailand. It combines the traditional Thai-culture and -style with (well refurbished) modern rooms, a multicultured restaurant and several amenities, making this hotel comfortable and convenient for businesspeople and tourists as well.
    Food excellent (the Italian restaurant to be recommended !), good service.Great pool and recreational facilities.

    Unique Quality: Located in a tropical garden, close to the city center

    Directions: Chiang Mai North

    Stayed 5 nights in early April. All facilities excellent but the genuine friendliness and helpfulness of all staff made our stay even more pleasurable. Breakfasts superb. Airport taxi service faultless. I would recommend this hotel to all visitors to Chiang Mai.

Nice place owned by two nice men

by Southerner about PJ's Place Guest House

Perfect service and crisp white sheets with a location that is right in the middle of the college/Orchid Hotel/Amari Rincome area. Pick up service at the airport and tailored service makes you feel like a king. Sweet quiet cul-de-sac, easy walk to everything yet so secluded.

Great stay at Amari Rincome!

by TripAdvisor Member Vakantiegangers

We had a great stay in this hotel during our vacation in Chiang Mai. It was easy to travel from this place to the highlights in the neighbourhood, such as the longnecks, the elephant show and the Sunday market. The hotel was nearby the city centre. We enjoyed the culture and the inhabitors were very friendly. We also enjoyed the massages, the food and the weather.
The hotel was fantastic; the bedrooms were beautiful and so were the swimming pool and the dining restaurant. The operators were very friendly and helpful and always prepared to help us in any way.

Great Value

by TripAdvisor Member ATM25

My wife & I just returned from a three night stay at the Amari Rincome. Upon check-in I was told that our deluxe room which I booked was unavailable; however the hotel countered by upgrading us to a suite. The suite was very nice and spacious, but in need of a facelift. The room was a little worn, but still very nice and decorated tastefully in Thai style. The staff in the hotel was very nice and the restaurants were excellent. We had a great dinner in the Italian restaurant. The pool area is very nice and is somewhat of an oasis within the city. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Chiang Mai, as the value was exceptional.

Nothing special

by TripAdvisor Member Peig.Dublin

We stayed in the Amari Rincome in July 2007. After staying in the Amari Watergate in Bangkok, we were expecting higher standards in this hotel.
The hotel is in need of renovation - it has a very 70s feel. Our room was a bit on the worn side. The pool is nice but is beside the car park and busy road.On arrival our toilet was blocked, lights bulbs weren't working and the air-con unit leaking. Once reception was contacted over these issues, they were quickly rectified.
If I was to return to Chang Mai, I'd choose to stay in the more central hotels near the night market, as there is very little in the area surrounding the hotel.

Hi, We are due to spend 5 nights at the Amari Rincome, the first week in August. Can anyone tell me anything about the hotel i.e. good location for trips or where we can book tours or trips. We really don't want to miss anything. What are the must see/do's of the area. I can't wait to go, we've been planning this trip for 12 months and have allocated 5 nights with a view to do a stop over tour (booked locally). I would really appreciate any advice from someone who's been. Emma

The Rincome is a just outside of the centre of Chaing Mai. There are plenty of places where you can book sightseeing trips. Doi Sethup temple is a must see as is a trip to Chaing Rai and at least one hill tribe visit.

Hi Emma,
I have recently stayed in Chiang Mai.
There are plenty of tour operators in the town offering mostly the same tours.
I used "Maitree Travel Co. in Soi 6 Changklan Muang" and was very pleased with their service.
Their web site is www.maitreetravel.com
I went on the elephant trip and it was great.
There is also a lovely elephant sanctuary just outside the village of Lampang, (about 45 miles from Chiang Mai.)
Here they offer free medical care to any elephant in Thailand. Yes, FREE.
The money generated from visitors to the sanctuary goes towards helping the elephants, not exploiting them.
I visited this place from Chian Mai and was very moved by what I saw there.
I think that you will not find this one on the regular tourist trip itinery but I hired a motor cycle to go there. I am sure that you could get transport very cheaply to visit there and it is well worth while.
Have a lovely trip,
Regards, John M.
