The Suriwongse Hotel in Chiang mai is a very good value for money hotel for those seeking 3 star hotel accommodation close to the Night Market bazaar and central Chiang Mai. The Suriwongse is affortable value and is ideal for those visiting Chiang Mai looking for reasonable 3 star hotel accommodation.
Unique Quality: Excellent inexpensive value for money hotel in Chiang Mai
This hotel is in the prime location of shopping paradise in Chiang Mai where handicraft, antique, silk and other Thai traditional products are easy to find at bargain prices.
Unique Quality: this one of the most popular hotel in Chang mai due to its strategic location within the famous night bazaar. The hotel room is clean, big and comfortable even there swimming pool is clean.
Unique Quality: This is a very popular hotel among the tour groups due to its strategic location within the night market itself. Just walk out from the lobby door and step into the opposite road to the heart of Chiang Mai's Night Bazaar at Changklan Road. You will have endless shopping bargains here. The hotel restaurant also serves a good selection & quality buffet. In some times, there is a band playing some favourite western and local music pieces.
The better thing about this hotel is the location. In front of the Night Market, with a big room.
The breakfast is not so good, the swimming pool is clear and staff very gentle.
We payed U$26 for a double deluxe room
I would stay there again
Pleasant but the furnishing and overall ambience is a bit tired. The toilet is also not well maintained with stains and cracks every where. The breakfast that comes with the room is okay but lacks variety if you stay there for more than 2 days.
The bed is huge - I think it is super king size as you don't even get to roll off the bed or kick your partner!!!
Unique Quality: The good point about this hotel is that the Chang Klan night markett is practically at your doorstep and if you can't live without Starbucks, it's just right next to it with Haagen-Daz beside it and McDonald's opposite.
Directions: At the bottom right of the Chang Klan night market and junction of Chang Klan and Loy Kroh roads.
We booked the hotel for 3 nights stay in a standard room. Costs us around SGD$45 (USD$29)per night per room. In the end, we got free upgrade to premium room because they were fully booked. The room is spacious. Has the basic amenities that we needed: Bed, TV, Aircon, king size bed. It comes with a bathtub (though we didn't use it). The breakfast was not very satisfactory though. The buffet dishes were cold (except for the omelette and the "Today's Special" corner. The waffle at the "today's special" corner are nice though).
Unique Quality: It is very near the night bazaar which makes it very easy for us to do our shopping, dinner and massages.
A good hotel, that we didn't "live" too much, because we were out all day long, and so tired at the end that bed was all that matters. However, we noticed that breakfast was good, and service was nice.
The area is calm, with lots or commercial places around, allowing a pleasant small walk around, to start digestion, before carrying your bones to bed.
This is a cheap hotel in what would generally be a good location right in the heart of the night market.
It is pretty rundown inside and the food on offer particularly for breakfast is very unappealing, however it is pretty cheap.
HOWEVER right now it is surrounded by building sites which are likely to remain for at least six months if not longer.
This building work is on a massive scale and goes on ALL NIGHT so bring your earplugs if you plan to stay.
Directions: Outside the old city but centrally located for the night market and close to river.
I had quite a comfortable stay in this hotel, the staff were quite friendly and were most willing to help with any request. The only thing is that the reception for the television programmes were quite bad..but I didn't bother asking for help from the staff because most of the programmes were in Thai. :P A bit troublesome was the key which was still the conventional key(attached to a big piece of metal bearing the room number) instead of a magnetic strip card. Overall, I would still definitely recommend to people who are looking for a hotel with a good location, fairly comfortable and not too expensive. ^_^
Unique Quality: good location just opposite the start of the night bazaar.
This is a hotel frequented by large tour groups from regional countries. But the loads of tour groups did not detract from the efficency of hotel staff. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Daily buffet breakfast included passable Western food. The hotel has a pleasant, clean swimming pool. The tour reps in the lobby will PHONE YOUR ROOM everyday if you disclose your name/ room number, so don't do so unless you want daily wake-up calls. Starbucks coffee shop shares the property so you can escape for morning coffee and Bangkok Post. Night bazaar is just across the soi if you're a shopper or want to enjoy the nightlife. The hotel is a soft-landing for budget-moderate travellers who make their first triip to Chiang Mai. firstname.lastname@example.org
Directions: Opposite night market in central tourist area.
Has anyone stayed at the Suriwongse Hotel in Chiang Mai. Would you recommend it? Is it central? If not, what would you recommend for about the same price?
What is 'the same price'? A nice place to stay in CM is CM BLue Guesthouse. Central (within the moat) and very close to the very excellent sunday market (which is 10 * more nice the the night market). Rooms are big, clean and the common/'restaurant' area outside is very nice. Rooms are around 300-350 baht per day (around 8-10 $)
If you're interested i can look up the phonenumber and website. Though it shouldn't be too hard to find. I read a while ago on the net that they are highly recommended (which was after i got there the first time).
asiarooms.com has it listed for 956baht per night
I'm not a fan of the Suriwongse Hotel for several reasons, not the least of which is, a LeMeridien Hotel is under construction directly across the street.
I think in the +/-1,000baht range, the Raming Lodge right up the street from the Suriwongse is a better deal.
You can get prices, and read FRESH raves and rants on asiarooms.com for ALL the larger hotels in Chiang Mai.
Contact retire-on-550-month.com and they will find you accomm that fit your budget with good location. See their website and then email date and what you want and your budget.
When you arrive it will be waiting for you.
Two areas are popular in CMai
One is night bazaar and the other is Kad Suan Kaew around Central Mall.
Night bazaar is for shopping and restaurants of all types. But after a couple of days enough is enough so best to see other areas.
As the cost of transport is so cheap being close to either is not that important. For a couple I would recommend NW corner of moat near Central Mall as it has better nightlife and large mall
For singles probably better around Night Bazaar. More bars for single men and disco for single lady(s).
There are other choices and it all depends on budget.
for accomm. - just tell them what you want and you budget and they will find the best for you.
Recently a new hotel offered $10 US a night. They have swimming pool, and more on site and only a few min from Night Bazaar.
So lots to pick from. Being close to NBazaar will cost you more and there maybe better out there for you.
