The Legend Chiang Rai Hotel
Show reviews that mention
Incredible place located next to the river, extremely quiet, great for relaxing. The room is very spacious with two balconies overlooking the garden. Breakfast is served in a lovely restaurant overlooking the river. To top it off the swimming pool is amazing, especially after long bicycle trips. We highly recommend staying at the hotel. We love this place.
The Place is nice. Good quality. They have everything you need.”
Overall is good. Nice staff, nice facilities, not that many parking spaces, but other than that everything is great. They have everything you need, iron, hairdryer, nice open-air bathroom.
The Legend Resort have a good Location . From there is not far to visit the White Temple , the Big Budda , the Blue Temple and the old Temple in the Town . Also very nice to see the Golden Triangle .

The Staff very Friendly ! And the Restaurant dela Casa was Fantastic . Very very delicious food and very good Wine's . So we can recommend the Legend Resort in Chiang Rai .
Interesting place by the river”
Location is a bit far from the night bazaar and other night spots. It took us about 30 minutes to walk to the night bazaar. The hotel provides shuttle to the area with a cost. 50B per person one way. Even bicycles are not free and they are quite old. As it is rainy season and by the river, a lot of moths a night and hence many lizards with some as longer than your palm. Not suitable for those who don't appreciate nature. Staff are polite and courteous. Nice breakfast restaurant by the river.
Amazing hotel and staff”
This is our 6th or 7th stay at The Legend and we have always been extremely happy during our stays. Everyone on staff exceeds our expectations with their personal and professional attention to details. Mr. Sawat is one of the most kind and helpful hotel staff that we have ever met. We completely enjoy our stays at this hotel and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. Dr. Mike and Karen Lacey
Nice and Big hotel beside the brown river”
It's a big property with many rooms. If you are lucky enough to get the good facing (away from the road), it is more quiet and peaceful. Simple Resort feel. Staffs are friendly and can speak simple English. Breakfast is standard and limited.
Boutique but old”
The hotel is located in the city on Kok river bank so very nice view. Nice facilty such as gym and pool. Breakfast was so so. Room is old and smell proved it. Bike needs to rent for 50 baht which could be free given high rate room charge. Extra person charged half of room rate(1,000 baht) which should be less due to the beds can accommodate 3 persons already(queen +single) So other new boutique ones offered cheaper rate and definitely worthier.
Relaxing Spot by the River in Chiang Rai”
Studio rooms and villas set in beautiful gardens with lovely views of the river. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great breakfast, again in a lovely restaurant area with views of the garden and river. Nice swimming pool. Just a few minutes by Tuk Tuk from the center of Chiang Mai. Staff can easily arrange Tuk Tuks or there's a free hotel shuttle bus in the evenings. Good spa and massage as well. I'd definitely stay here again if returning to Chiang Rai.
Too many ants and pay attention to the complimentary water”
There are too many ants inside the room which made us cannot have a relax stay thoroughout the night. Also better pay attention to the terms when you drink their 'complimentary' bottle of water. You need to leave the empty drank bottle inside the room otherwise the hotel will charge you for extra money which is kind of tricky and kind of a disappointing experience to me and my family.
Nice short vacation”
Nice, original, Thai style resort , located next to the river Kok. Rooms are spacious and include a desk to work at. Bed and pillows are very comfortable. Bathroom is rather unique, very large and includes a water bowl so you can shower the old-fashioned way. Balcony includes view of garden and pond. Room has airco and ceiling fan. Breakfast buffet is adequate with sufficient choice (Thai & western). Coffee (incl. espresso) is excellent. The river view when dining or swimming is beautiful. Hotel & garden & surroundings are very well-maintained. Staff is service-minded and helpful. Food at the Italian restaurant (Wine Casa) is very good. In conclusion, a very nice hotel for a relaxed and quiet stay in Chiang Rai.
good overall, exception”
everything is good, exceptional
Peaceful riverside retreat”
only one minor issue for us was that our safe didn't work and was forced dead repeatedly and the pool bar was not open and no drinks were offered by f you were relaxing by the pool.....apart from that no complaints...lovely staff team,good food and a spacious comfortable room....100 baht to the famous White temple temple and we used the hotel tour operators to go to the Golden a Triangle...great day out.
Good hotel on the river ”
Pros great spot for breakfast on the terrace in the buffet area,food was nice,room was old Lanna style and did the job,staff courteous and smiling.(some previous reviews sounded like they staff weren’t up to the job it’s just northern Thai style,so chill out they are shy and reserved)gardens were great river view was awesome.Cons not many it is a walk to town but there are lots of cheap taxis hotel shuttle etc. it’s probably a 3.5 not 5 star but in Chiang Rai it’s relaxation time not comparing time.enjoy
Beautiful Home in Chiang Rai”
It's a great place from which to explore Northern Thailand and a lovely place to come home to at the end of the day. In fact, we even scheduled time spent in the hotel just to enjoy the traditional Lanna architecture, the river views and chatting with the staff. Lookheb the travel agent there is brilliantly intuitive at finding a tour that just suits you and our guide Parn was so kind and informative. Staff at the hotel were great too. Only thing I found tough was that the swimming pool was tooooo cold!
A very decent resort at reasonable price”
The resort is quite large, located nicely beside a river. The room is clean and spacious. The breakfast offers varieties, and the restaurants are all nicely decorated. Staff are friendly and helpful. Only a pity that they don't reply to email prior to the trip.
Nice, Thai style hotel, good room size”
Good value for money. Good size room, with nice thai style decoration. Restaurant is next to the river, with good range of breakfast. Overall it was good stay and will consider staying here again for my next visit to Chaing Rai.
Lovely & Welcome Stay”
When we arrived the staff were very smiley and welcome. We were served with a traditional welcome drink. we were then taken to our room which was very spacious and lovely. The room was decorated Thai Lana Style with a huge bathroom. The balcony was also lovely with some seating area. The pool was absolutely stunning overlooking the River Kok. The breakfast was also good, lots of choices of foods. Thai rice porridge and full ABF breakfast was available. Nothing better that having a coffee over looking the peaceful river. However one thing that was the best for us was our tuk tuk driver who i really was helpful and i really recommend that if you need help around Chiangrai to call him. His name is Mr Noi 0814738816.
Charming hotel at the Kok river!”
Quietly tucked at the river, this Northern style hotel offers a relaxing quiet atmosphere, with charming details . The hotel is well looked after, but not of the latest standards, the rooms are clean with typical northern style furniture. The bed and mattress are however a bit hard to sleep on. Great pool with stunning views on the Kok river. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The breakfast offered a nice variety in very good quality. The restaurant Wine Casa has a small but distinctive selection of wines. We enjoyed a very tasty bottle of Italian wine, with a beautiful view on the river...Charming and tempting!
Comfort room and Polite Staff”
Very impress for the stay. I traveled with family of 5 people. The superior room is just perfect not so big or small. The hotel is also decorated nicely in Northern style. Superp for the value of money.
