      Chiang Mai Orchid still a great hotel”

      Wonderful location, friendly helpful staff, good value for money.

      We have been staying at the Chiang Mai Orchid for 15 years or so...perhaps 12-14 times with and without accompanying friends and never sorry. As is usual the higher the floor the better the room and higher the price . The top floor rooms all have lovely balconies overlooking the city. The hotel is located on Huay Keau Road within 500 meters of the wall and moot. The TOPS shoppng mall next door is modern, clean and cheap and has a good food vendor court and an excellent grocery store.

      Big old hotel with full facilities”

      Clean and convenient. Lots os staff to provide help. Nice local food at hotel restaurant.

      Chiang Mai Orchid is one of the oldest big hotel in the city. Its location is convenient for me who has business to do with Chiang Mai University but for most tourists, it might be more convenient to stay over the Nimanhemin Road for your night shopping/dining. Although the room and facility look a little too aged, the hotel is very big and they have pretty much most things we need....it is just not in the most stylish way as many other smaller boutique hotels in Chiang Mai will offer. But the hotel restaurant offered a very nice local food in a very reasonable price. The breakfast buffet was also nice. In conclusion, although this place might be old and does not offer the fancy look to the visitor, it is clean and convenient.

      Great price, location, decent breakfast

      Chiang Mai is full of lower-cost hotels, but many are dumps. Chiang Mai Orchid hotel is just fine, and a great value in my opinion. Our basic superior room was large, beds comfortable but pillows are average, and reliable wi-fi but needing frequent re-login. The bathroom is clean enough but not pristine, water pressure is real good, and hot water is not a problem at all during long showers! The basic buffet breakfast that came with our room was a step up over most lower-cost hotels - with actually quite nice multi-grain bread for toast, yoghurt, musli, and the usual a variety of Asian vegetable dishes and stir-fry, and soups. Coffee is good and strong, and fresh milk was always on the buffet table. A very large pool looked great, but I somehow did not get to use it. My bad. The location right next to the huge Kad Suan Keow plaza is also a big plus in my opinion - you can find Starbuck, Pizza Company, Black Canyon Coffee and other chains there plus the inevitable massage services, gadget shops, handicrafts, a basic local food court, and a full supermarket. Staff throughout the building seemed pretty friendly and helpful when something is requested. We would stay here again, and probably will.

      Orchid Hotel - Chiang Mai”

      Cleanliness, decor, photos in lobby, live music.
      A better understanding and conversing in the English language.

      The Orchid Hotel in Chiang Mai is great. Good food, clean, the understated decor, photos in lobby give one a feel for its majestic proportions. The traditional live music played by gentle folk adds to the ambiance of the foyer and relaxes one instantly. The Spa next door is wonderful for a massage. The staff in the lobby and reception go out of their way to accommodate one's wishes and arrange sight-seeing tours with ease. Thank you.

      staff was very helpful and friendly. Ordered some food in the Mae Rim restaurant and the waiter flooded me with complimentary food and drinks. Counter staff was concerned that they didn't have a room ready for me and provided me with wifi and luggage drop services. my only complain - I requested to check in early on the website. I arrived at 8am and was told I will only get a room in the afternoon. I was traveling over night and was desperate for a place to sleep. The website or the hotel could inform me early if early rooms are not available. Will still definitely return to Chiang Mai Orchid Hotel when I return to Chiang Mai.

      Comfort and spaciousness
      Could do with a paint job and more mirrors everywhere.

      The Orchid is very good value for money. Especially in the low season (up to October 31), when it is only $26 per night. This is really very good value for a hotel in this central position for this part of Chiang Mai. The staff were unfailingly friendly. I often wonder, though, at how tired they must be when some of them are employed merely to open and close doors. I tend to tip well in Thailand, since I can guess how low the wages of staff must be.

      My stay at Chiang Mai Orchid Hotel”

      Great, friendly, courteous staff....Super buffet breakfast included with room cost. Very accessable to shopping at the mall, just 200 meters away.
      I found no faults with my stay there..I would like to see more english speaking stations on the television if that is possible.

      I had stayed at another hotel previously and they charged for WIFI..The orchid does not charge! The hotel is a short distance from night bazaar or the night life but it is easy to get to with tuk tuk. I live in Chiang Dao which is 80kms north and I will go to chiang mai 2 weekends a month and my plans will be to continue staying at the Orchid Hotel..It met all my needs.

      Nice, older hotel, good service, beds & location”

      good service, next door to major mall, great location

      Check-in was easy (they do require a print-out of voucher). They are flexible and willing to do what is necessary to set things right even when due to miscommunication or misunderstanding on part of the guest. The rooms are decent size, nice bathrooms, clean, and beds are firm, but comfortable. The breakfast is good. The hotel is older, but still very nice, and a real bargain. The hotel is located right next door to Central Plaza mall and on the edge of the Old City and Chiang Mai University areas. I liked this hotel and will stay here again if I need to be in this area.
