                Absolutely gorgeous hotel - highly recommend”

                I’m very particular about hotels, and the Ping Nakara exceeded all of my rather high expectations. The hotel is beautiful, extremely well maintained, and well located for tourists. The staff are wonderful - very friendly, helpful and attentive to guests. Food in the restaurant is very good, especially the Thai food they prepare at dinner. The spa is also top notch, and worth trying. It is a lot more expensive than even the really nice spas in town, but it’s a lovely setting and they offer a first class experience (try the ginger tea at the end - I’ve never tasted anything like it, outstanding). Unless you stay at the (supremely expensive and very remote) Four Seasons, I can’t imagine there is a better hotel in Chiang Mai. I loved it, and I will return.

                Classic Hotel in Chiang Mai ”

                My wife and i booked this lovely colonial hotel in Chiang Mai, The porters were immediately on hand as we walked in. The reception staff then asked us to sit down to complete the checking in process. You can see that someone paid a great deal of attention to the decoration/details. it has a warm feel whilst using antique throughout the hotel. if you are looking for a smaller hotel centrally located, but away from the 1,000's of tourists, well this might just be the place for you. i would certainly return and would recommend the place, my only comment is that the breakfast offering, whilst good, could be improved. there is a nice pool and spa, and just few meters from the hotel, there is also a riverside cafe (le Jardin du Nakara), where you can have light bitted and afternoon tea.

                A very charming boutique hotel with a touch of Thai elements. Very attentive staff and you can actually feel that they are doing their very best to make sure you have a blissful experience during your stay. Not so commercialized like the international-chained hotels, Ping Nakara offered a very homey and cozy environment gave us a brand new experience. They even prepared sandwiches with juices for us to take away when we checked out at 5AM knowing we had a morning flight to catch!? p/s: Delicious breakfast too =D Thank you Ping Nakara for the pleasant experience.

                Staff Performance, facilities, ambience

                A new hotel designed in the colonial style, with beautiful wood appointments, nice interior decoration and a beautiful setting once inside. The hotel is on a pretty busy road and I worried that noise might be a problem, but once inside the room it was extremely quiet. This is because of the unusual layout of the room: when you enter you are immediately in the bathroom, which you have to walk through to get to the bedroom. This was off-putting at first but the staff explained it is to provide a buffer between the noise of the street and the room - and it worked fine! The staff was helpful at every instant, and I enjoyed afternoons and evening in the library or in the quiet small bar. I would happily stay here again.

                Great looking hotel, quiet and exceptional service

                Exceptionally beautiful hotel and great service from staff. But room was a bit of a let down in terms of design / standard. I was given a connecting room next to a family with kids and the noise was unbearable. Given the old classical theme, the connecting doors should be given some treatment to shield off noise and not just for the sake of aesthetic purposes. Great breakfast selection, quiet and quaint little hotel which it would be a gem if not for the privacy of the rooms and guests have been overlooked.

                Fantastic stay. Staff embody Thai hospitality at its best. Deluxe room big and comfortable. Breakfast excellent. We ate dinner at the hotel all three nights as the food was fantastic. Spa was exceptional. Certainly you can dine and enjoy a spa outside the hotel for less baht, but you will not get the same quality or service levels. Treat yourself to a ride to or from the airport in the vintage Mercedes. Fits perfectly with the theme of the hotel and harkens back to yesteryear. Bask in the colonial ambience created by the team at Ping Nakara. We did and we will be back.

                As charming as the city it belongs to”

                Interesting architecture, spacious rooms, perpetual cricket symphony

                Somewhat situated by the Ping River (I say somewhat because you don't really get a view of it from the hotel itself), Ping Nakara sits on what used to be a forest station mahouts parked their elephants at. All the history is long gone, and despite the interesting and quaint architecture (a combination of nine influences if I'm not mistaken) the hotel is a surprisingly modern building, no more than a few years old. There's the colonial feel, the spacious rooms--each named after a flower/plant, tasteful decor and always-smiling, English speaking staff. The spa is not cheap but it's definitely clean, professionally run and nicely appointed--popular enough to warrant an advanced booking. A stroll through the garden will take you to the Nakara Jardin, a cafe/restaurant on the hotel grounds offering seats perched by the Ping River. Here, under overhanging branches, you get the crickets, frogs, serenity and view. Location wise, although the Night Bazaar is just a short stroll away (and not particularly worth its hype), the Old City (its walking street is not to be missed on weekends, especially the evenings) may take about 15-20 minutes to get to on foot. There are enough tuk-tuks to ensure a short-cut is always available, but as always, haggle to keep it within 100 baht. I went to Chiang Mai to get away from the mad city life for a few days, and the Ping Nakara had a big part in making sure that went without a hitch. (Well, the air-con stopped working the first night, and after the technician failed to fix it, we were upgraded to a larger, pool-facing room the next day. It's a detail I only recalled at the end of this review, and that says plenty about how much I enjoyed myself.)

                Attentive staff, excellent colonial atmosphere, value for money

                We've stayed 3 nights in Ping Nakara and it was exceptional from the very first second. The hotel is so well designed, with attention to every little detail. I like beautiful objects and architecture, and they have managed to exceed my expectations. We had a top floor room with a small balcony overlooking the right side of the pool with a view on luxuriant vegetation. The rooms are very well decorated and comfortable, I felt at home for the entire duration of the stay. We also went for a 2-hour massage and it was a delightful experience. The staff is well trained and it was one of the best massages I have ever had. I would definitely go back to this hotel every time I have the chance traveling to Chiang Mai.

                Superlative service from everyone. The furniture was a little dated but only adds to the charm, bed and pillows were very comfy, shower was fantastic. TV channels were very limited but wasn’t important to us. Breakfast was a little limited in variety but quality was very high - delicious. Dinner was enjoyable and better meals are walking distance away. Spa was fabulous. Would definitely stay there again.

The attention paid to the smallest of details creates and aesthetic that is just a feast for the eyes. You know this is the case when the only negative we can find is that there is not a convenient hook in the bathroom to hang the complimentary robe! The staff was always pleasant, courteous and very helpful. Their only desire was to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Bravo...just an outstanding facility!

                Recently my wife and I stayed for 5 nights in the Ping Nakara. We could not fault it. Our room was spacious with a lovely verandah overlooking the pool. The pool itself was quiet and relaxing - just what you need after a day walking the streets of Chiang Mai. All staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were excellent. We also had 2 evening meals at the hotel which could not be faulted. I liked the location as it was close enough to walk to the main areas in town, but far enough away so that it was quiet. A great hotel and we will be back.

                Can't be better ”

                Every time we came to Chiang Mai, we will stayed in this hotel. We felt like staying in a Lana style traditional elegance mansion with excellence service. We enjoyed the room with large balcony , the library room, pool. The food in the hotel restaurant is very delicious , great breakfast with local choices. Staff are very helpful and even the tour operator gives very good recommendation and services. We will come back again and again.

                Really Amazing Experience in Ping Nakara!”

                Hotel is near the night bazaar within 10 mins walking road but very quiet. Efficient check in and laundry service and intimate room service. Nice breakfast and outdoor swimming pool. We received a pair of ceramic elaphent as souvenir. It's the best living experience in Thailand!!

                Very friendly and helpful staff”

                We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. We spent 3 nights there and the staffs are very nice and helpful. Hotel is clean and the breakfast is good. Also, we had free refreshment at mini-bar and spa is excellent. Hotel provided a free rdide from hotel to the 3D Paradise Museum by the antique Mercedes Benz. In addition, the Almsgiving activity is also a meaningful experience for us. One minor problem is the carpet at the floor of the room. It is not fixed on the ground firmly and it is slippery if someone stands on it. Highly recommend this hotel

                Fabulous ”

                Super cozy and stylish hotel. Great staff, awesome pool, good food and drinks, amazing spa too. This place is also close enough to the action and nightlife to go have fun but not in the middle of the noise and craziness. I would definitely stay here again.

                Love this little gem”

                Beautiful boutique hotel, very comfy bed and pillows. Big whirlpool bathtub, fantastic water pressure (shower head). On my first day there all other guests were out and it felt like my own mansion. Wide dark teak stairs, library beside the pool, smell of lemongrass floating in the air.. Slow down and enjoy this hotel and you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.
