Laluna Hotel and Resort
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"This hotel has been one of the highlights of my travels around Asia. Set on a quiet road about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Chiang Rai, the fairly ordinary entrance road does not prepare you for what waits at reception and beyond. Once checked in the friendly staff guide you through a tropical paradise of plants and trees to one of the spacious and well equipped bungalows. Make sure to bring mosquito repellent as this is one of the prices you pay for staying in the centre of so much greenery. Reception staff are friendly and helpful although two of my few criticisms of the resort are that a) Their airport transfer is overpriced by about 200 baht (I booked through the tour place across road) and b) some of their tours are also more expensive than walking across road - plus there do not seem a lot of options for the solo traveller. But these are both small, easily remedied criticisms. The attached restaurant bar provides breakfast in the morning and drinks and meals at night; remember to get your daily 10% discount coupon and remember the 3 for 2 happy hours too. The restaurant have both friendly staff and some amazing food. Try the Kao Soi Gai - a new dish for me and now one of my all time Thai favourites! The breakfast buffet was perhaps the best I have experienced with a wide range of Thai and Western choices. Also easy to get a tuk tuk up to the night market (should be about 50 baht each way) All in all, the LaLuna is a gem in Chiang Rai and is most definitely on the 'must return' list!"

The Riverie by Katathani (SHA Plus+)
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Family room suite has spacious space, worth the price. A 7-foot King size bed is perfect for family who has to sleep with kids. No floor stepping which would be dangerous for toddlers. Check in/out service is fast. Breakfast is good for everyone. A lot of selections, changing everyday. Gyms is also good but close at 8 pm is too early for nowadays's trend. Kids' club has a big ball house which is heaven for every kids (Small toddlers to the early adolescent!) It's free, though! This hotel is probably the only hotel in Chiang Rai which has a good kids' club with ball house. Anyway, hotel should provide attending staff, at least to control kids'play which always has various age groups at the same time. Another toys are mostly broken. Should be replaced and get maintenance. Swimming pool is also awesome for kids. A pool bar is also available. (It may be even a lot better if there is a curly water slide.) In-room amenity is well equipped."

B2 Chiang Rai
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Stayed here for a second time, and it still is for me the best in Chiang Rai. It is centrally located, rooms are clean and well maintained. The only downside I experienced was, we arrived early in the day, but we weren't allowed check-in until about 1PM. They kept telling us that because we booked thru Agoda, check-in time is strictly 2PM. Nothing really bad because that's what it says on print. They allowed to keep our luggage so we can go around town. But, it would have been a nice touch if we were allowed to check-in earlier, the hotel wasn't really fully booked because it's off season for travel now. I wonder, if we booked through the B2 app, would we have been allowed to check-in earlier? Perhaps... In summary though, the value for money is really way above board, especially because we got a discounted price. Will definitely stay again here next time I'm in Chiang Rai."

Pimanninn
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"Stayed at Pimanninn for first time, and was more than satisfied w/ quality of room, especially for having been booked at such budget price. Location is not the best in Chiang Rai, but one may walk to several areas of interest w/in 20 minutes. Staff is very friendly, although severely lacking in English communication skills. Swimming pool is rather large, and Fitness Center is replete w/ high-qualify fitness equipment. If visiting Chiang Rai in future, will definitely consider booking at Pimanninn again."

The Heritage Chiang Rai (SHA Extra Plus)
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"We are very grateful to choose The Heritage Hotel during our holiday in Chiang Rai, a five star hotel. The rooms are big, new, very clean and very modern. Especially the bed, very soft and comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful and very delicious. And the hotel staff is very friendly and speaks good English so communication is not a problem for those who don't speak Thai. If there is a chance to come to Chiang Rai again, we will definitely come back to The Heritage Hotel."

Le Meridien Chiang Rai Resort SHA Plus +
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"It is Le Meridien, so of course I am picky. First of all it is quite surprising to find such a huge mega resort in a place like Chiang Rai. First day was extremely quiet, almost no clients in the hotel, it gives the experience an uttermost feeling of luxury. The following day at least 60 Spanish people in coach bus and 30 Chinese people raided the hotel... it was different =_= It is only for people who love this kind of huge luxury building, and already know Le Meridien's style. They made proper efforts to use as mush teak as possible and have the Thai feeling in the architecture. Service is really good, and "Net" was really helpful, thanks to her! If you are in Bangkok, it is only 1:20 flight to chiang rai and then a 10 minutes ride to the hotel, worth it to go away from the craziness and pollution of the capital. +++ Positive +++ + Amazing setting, the view on the river or the massive trees lighten with lanterns in between the buildings... the camp fire in the evening... we even saw a meteorite crashing few kilometers from us, it is hard to top that. + Spacious and clean rooms + Super comfy beds (zzzZZZ) + Big balcony + Excellent service (special mention to the woman called "Net" at the front desk!) + Food in general in the three restaurants is really good + For 400THB the breakfast buffet is good, but I would say 300THB would be a fairer price + 24/7 gym + Great WiFi + Hotel shuttle to airport (200THB) - the guy is from Fast & Furious though + Almost everyone in the team speaks a really correct to excellent English --- Negative --- - For this price and expectations, rooms should have a double door sas system. We really hear too much the people walking by or the room service ringing and talking to the guests next to us. So long privacy... - Shower is good, and water temperature is stable but having a plastic bathtub in this kind of hotel makes everything look super cheap all of a sudden. - TV is way too small, or the room too big I don't know, either way it i"

Grand Vista Hotel Chiangrai
City Center,Chiang Rai - View on map
"There are few hotels in Chiang Rai that meet a Westerners expectations. Grand Vista does. Security is excellent, room is clean. Breakfast was Thai style with a special Chiang Rai speciality soup, vegetables/salad and egg station. Front desk staff was extremely kind and English was well spoken. For the rate I'd recommend this hotel as the #1 in CR. I recommend booking a back room as the front faces the highway and back-side is quiet. "

More about Chiang Rai

As a regional capital, Chiang Rai gives its name to the entire province, and travelers come here for rustic getaways, jungle trekking, and a chance to engage the dozen hill-tribe cultures that have settled here. Legend states that Thailand's famous Emerald Buddha was discovered here, and while its temple remains, the prized artifact has been moved to Bangkok's Wat Phra Kaew.

Visitors typically spend a night or two in the city center, or Amphoe Muang Chiang Rai, before heading out into the backcountry. With the borders of Myanmar and Laos just over the horizon, there is plenty of culture to explore. The three countries meet at the Golden Triangle, a once lawless land that has replaced opium cultivation with the safer and more reliable tourist trade. Attractions here include the Hall of Opium, Burmese-styled temples, and excellent hill-tribe trekking opportunities.

Chiang Rai’s peak season is in December and January, a time that attracts many domestic travelers to enjoy the cooler temperatures the region offers. The city’s best hotels are located along the Kok River or near the centrally located night bazaar, and they provide excellent assistance in arranging the activities you would like to partake in.
