Great Hotel in the heart of it”

Big, Clean, Professional

Hotel Buaraya is a great hotel, the lobby is outstanding and very very clean. It's a good choice for Chiang Mai although we found ourselves going to the old city every night and this hotel is located outside of the walls. Not a major issue though If you want a large hotel, clean rooms and all mod cons with great wifi, you can't go wrong with Buaraya

location, space, cleanliness, parking

We enjoyed our stay at Buaraya Hotel. Parking space is ample. The location is great and convenient to walk around the downtown Chiang Mai. There are plenty of restaurants and food stall in front of hotel, including several convenient stores. This is not the hotel you will spend all day chilling out. It's just a cheap and clean hotel so you can conveniently explore the city center. Breakfast is quite poor and nothing to talk about but you can find many alternatives in front of hotel.

Great Location & Reasonable Price”

Price, location and convenient

A very low price hotel with breakfast. The location is well as well. We can walk to the Old Town, major temples and night markets within 15 minutes. Room is big and comfortable. Breakfast provides a variety of Thai, Western and Chinese food. Car parking is also provided. Convenience stores and roadside restaurants are also located outside the hotel. It is great to have a such hotel in the city center of Chiang Mai.

walking distance from the bus, lovely room, nice environment

my stay at the Buaraya Hotel was lovely. I walked there from the van station and found it really easily. 7/11 was just up the street and as I walked I passed many food stalls and restaurants setting up for the evening so local food was really easy to get hold of. I checked in quickly and easily and was given the keys to a lovely and very spacious room. Everything was clean and neatly laid out. I have no complaints about the room or the bathroom at all. I had a full sized bath with over head shower and everything was fresh and well maintained. My twin bed room was comfortable and everything I was promised in a room was successfully delivered. Breakfast was the usual buffet of food but I was particularly impressed with their honey pancakes which were delicious. I'd happily stay here again.

Accessible”

Well-known by local public transport operators, Near convenient stores and ATMs, Near local

Room was clean and bed was comfortable though view is disappointing. There are ATMs and convenient stores (7-eleven and Tesco Express) practically next door. It is also near one of the "gates" of old Chiang Mai which is ideal for the casual holiday photo-taking. There are also public buses (songthaews) lined up near the hotel every morning which you can take to Doi Suthep (and other places of course). At night, you can also find street food. If you are a Muslim, the hotel is near a mosque and two local eating places which are open during the day. The hotel though quite new, is well-known. If you need to return to your hotel from anywhere in the city, just tell any taxi driver or bus operator the name of your hotel or the road it is located at and they'll know where it is.

Excellent family value hotel”

Spacious rooms, very clear, staff helpful and some English speaking

We are traveling alot in Asia in 2012 and 2013 so need good hotel bargains as we are paying for a family. Buaraya meets this need perfectly. The place was spotless, and the staff was lovely. We got good tips on where to shop for furniture. It is a basic hotel, so no luxuries. easy to get transport outside, and easy to access the Old City through a nearby gate. Only complaint was the rooster who started to fuss very early in the morning, but that is likely an issue anywhere in the town. I saw complaints about the breakfast on another comment but we liked it. it is Asian, not Western, so just a question of setting expectation. There is a large fridge in the room, as well as a kettle, so if you want your own special cereal with milk, or oatmeal, easy to bring along.

Convenient lodging near walled city”

location, friendly staff, comfortable room

Not many of the staff were friendly but not well versed in English and I have no Thai skills which created some challenges. Wi-fi was unreliable and there was not public internet access. It was close to the Sunday Street Walk and tuk tuks were easily available at the hotel. The real challenge I had was obtaining information on how to depart Chiang Mai - no information on bus schedules were available at the hotel or at nearby "travel agents". I ended up booking a flight back to Bangkok was the train was not available due to weather conditions that had damaged the tracks.

Location, Wifi access in the room and spacious room

Stay in Buaraya Hotel was very good. Room was spacious, beds were comfortable and bathroom was clean. Had difficulty conversing in english with some of the hotel staff but they were very helpful in booking us a tour to Dao Suthep temple and getting us a taxi for a trip to Mae Jo area. Location of the hotel is very convenient as it is on the perimeter of central area/walled city and is walking distance to where most of the restaurants and shops are. There is a 7-Eleven and another convenience store a few meters from the hotel and at night there is a makeshift food market where you can try some street food.

Tasteful, but a few signs of age”

The hotel (especially the lobby) is pleasant with ample northern Thai decor. Spacious and welcoming. The guest room (superior double) has older solid wood furniture, and a mattress that passes, but isn't outstanding. The bathroom is clean, a bit cramped. Nice bathtub. Good view (sixth floor) of the mountain. Parking is convenient. Did not eat the breakfast, but it appears to be the basic level of breakfast buffet. The street food market in front of the hotel in the evening is a lively experience with crowds of both tourist and Chiang Mai residents. Easy to get transport from the hotel to anywhere else. Staff are capable and pleasant, though not overly invested in the guests. Finally, the hotel caters to Chinese tourists, though that was not a drawback during our stay. Overall, clean, tasteful, convenient, but some worn edges aesthetically. I'd go back.

My stay at the Buaraya Hotel was wonderful. The room was large with comfortable bed and fairly good internet service. The check-in was quick and the bell service was very good. I thought the front desk person could have been a bit friendlier, but her English was quite good. They were very gracious in allowing me to leave my bags while I went to hospital appointment. This stay was a very nice experience at a good price.

Doskonała lokalizacja, zaraz za murami starego miasta Chiang Mai. Przy głównej drodze ale jest wieczorem bardzo cicho. Pokój mieliśmy duży i wygodny, czysty chociaż wyposażenie lata świetności ma już za sobą. Największą wadą jest jedzenie - oferowane śniadania są niestety bardzo niesmaczne, mieliśmy wrażenie, że jedzenie (przynajmniej to "zachodnie" jest bardzo złej jakości).
