                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.

                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.

                Check-in was a breeze and we were given a quick orientation around the hotel. Rooms are big and comfortable and has a small balcony that faces lush greenery. Mini bar and snacks in room are complimentary and bar at the hotel offers a 1-for-1 Happy Hour deal from 5-7pm daily. The spa at the hotel also runs a promotion for some of its signature treatments. Restaurants can be found within the vicinity and the Night Bazaar is about 10-15 mins walk away. Upon check-out, we were surprised by the management with a pair of ceramic elephant ornaments to bring home with that added a memorable touch to our experience here at the Ping Nakara hotel. Thank you.

                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.

The daily breakfast is a buffet with smiling service and excellent food, the rooms and overall design of the hotel are outstanding, not your usual hotel, more like a beautiful residence than a standard cookie cutter hotel, making you feel welcome at every point. We relaxed by the pool in the library terrace with a bottle of champagne one evening, the staff were excellent, friendly and always looking to assist us.

                This place has real WOW factor. It oozes old world charm and elegance, from the plush sitting rooms by the pool, to the gorgeous library, all the common areas have a distinct quality about them which continues throughout the private rooms. Large comfortable beds with pillow menu ensure a good quality sleep, decked out in colonial style decor, staying here really felt like a journey back in time, but with the modern conveniences of fast internet and cable TV. The food was a real highlight (must taste the Burmese Pork Curry) but the Ayervedic Spa was truly world class and highly, highly recommended.

                A Wonderful Hotel”

                Great Location and Peaceful Atmoshpere

                Ping Nakara met all my expectations. The hotel is small and has a nice quiet classy atmosphere. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was great - your order for eggs was taken by a waiter and delivered to your table. The restaurant also prepares great Thai dishes. The bed in the room was very comfortable. I would definitely come back to this hotel. It is truly a five star location. It is easy walk to various downtown Chiang Mai attractions. The Ping Nakara Spa has everything you would expect in a high end spa. I enjoyed my two visits there.

                The style and ambience

                I stayed here with a friend for two nights and wish it could have been longer. Due to the style we thought it was a colonial refubishment but it turns out it's around five years old but with the most amazing attention to detail and styling. Everything about the hotel is goregous and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody planning to visit Chiang Mai.

                Helpful but not well-trained staff, great spa

                The hotel gave you a colonial feeling with a very beautiful architecture. The room is decorated in an colonial style with the private bar for free! The spa therapist is also very professional and the atmosphere was just awesome. The only problem of this hotel seems to be the front desk who didn't seem to be well-trained and took a very long time during my reception process

                Nice boutique hotel

                The hotel is a small hotel, but offers very nice interior of the old world style. The breakfast of this hotel is excellent. the rooms are very comfortable and clean. It's very close to the Chiang mai night bazaar as well.

                colonial style hotel

                The service is a little lacking and the price is relatively high compared to other hotels. The hotel itself is new and very clean. Staffs are friendly. The hotel is not located next to the ping river. It's just close by. The hotel is built on a small plot of land, hence boutique hotel with very nice colonial style layout. This hotel is highly recommended for a honeymoon trip.

                Beautiful colonial style Hotel”

                Good location. Spacious and stylish rooms. Great breakfast. Very good service.

                This is an amazing hotel and one of the reasons we tend to choose boutique hotels instead a big chain hotels. The hotel is just beautiful. Rooms are spacious and each one has a small balcony. The breakfast was very good and the staff was very attentive. I would not hesitate to come back. What a great hotel!
