Gorgeous Hotel”
I loved this place where attention to detail brought an amazing experience. Stayed a few days over Songkran, which is out of season, and the hotel was very quiet. Breakfasts were good and wholesome. Room design and comfort were extraordinary. Staff were available but at times we're limited by their English language abilities. The gym and pools are fantastic with trainers who can help, although their English is also limited. As usual in Thai culture, the Sheik Istana staff ooze warmth and smiles at every opportunity. I will grab an opportunity to visit again if it pops up.

Lovely tranquil hotel in Chiang Mai”
The hotel is conveniently located to the airport but unfortunately not too many other places in the city. Other than that inconvenience it is a wonderful place to stay. It was clean, tranquil and idyllic. The staff are genuinely kind hearted and sweet, qualities hard to find in the hospitality industry. The Landscaping is beautiful. I would definitely stay here again

Very poor management”
I have had a very bad experience with the hotel starting from the booking right through to the last night of stay. The hotel seems to have cash problems as the hotel kept asking us to pay for everything upfront unlike other hotels I have stayed in. From room charges to extra bed charge even when taking cash deposit. The last night we stayed, the hotel decided to spray mosquitoes chemical at 9pm to 11pm. This was really inconvenient since they expect you to either be in your room before 9pm or come back at midnight. The truth is we could not get back in time and have had to brave the chemical sprays. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Best to give it a missed.

We loved our stay at this hotel”
Great staff, nice rooms, delicious breakfast but a little out of the way. We took advantage of the bikes to explore the square during the day but other than that were forced to use Uber to get back and forth from the main part of town where all the shops and restaurants are which wasn't bad at all- took 10 minutes tops. We just typically prefer to navigate on foot or by bike.

Worst Hotel Experience ”
We booked hotel well in advance and requested for a king size bed but were given a twin bed room with no alternative for all the 3 days. They were not even willing to accept their mistake and said in any case room charges are non refundable. Staff was very rude and didn't treat us properly. Wifi connection was too slow and kept disconnecting frequently. Hotel didn't provide us with international multi plug for mobile chargers (apparently they just have 2 which were already in use). Gyser was also not working and room and pool was not clean. Overall a very bad experience.

Terrible hotel...please avoid!”
decor, river location, manager
The bathroom had a terrible stench. They said they would fix it and worked on it but the smell came back after awhile. They wanted is to wait until 2 in the afternoon for another room, then when they saw how terrible the room smelled they moved us to a deluxe room but the shower and toilet had yellow water. The staff were unorganized and hard to get ahold of. The breakfast was not very good and we were served omlettes that were undercooked. Another guest also had problems with the room because it was very noisy and was waiting to have the room changed. After many hours we gave up and decided to check out immediately.

It is a hotel by the Ping river, it only takes minutes from the airport to this hotel. This is a theme hotel that use the concept of middle east palace for their decoration. The room size is ok, there is not much to choose from the breakfast but it is fine generally.

Beautiful hotel but poor maintenance ”
garden, spacious room, breakfast
First of all, the hotel is a beautiful one. Nice garden, spacious room, balcony is a bit small but you still can sit there reading books for a laid back morning. We feel it's a waste that such a beautiful hotel is not maintained very well. The hotel is quite far from the old town area and is in the middle of absolutely nowhere. The river view is actually a section of river so narrow that almost looks like a ditch. Not very impressive. It costs 200 bah to get to the old town, but when we were in the old town we rented bikes and rode back to the hotel at night - quite dangerous though. There are multiple steps up and down in the room, entrance, closet and bathroom. At night we had to put some clothes next to the steps so that we wouldn't fall down in the dark. There are steps in the corridor as well. It's not a big issue but shows lack of consideration. The second night of our stay, the toilet was broken (not our fault) and couldn't be fixed. We waited for over 2 hours in the morning before they figure out how to resolve this - offer us a different room (and we only have 1 full day for traveling). Their original offer was asking us to use their public bathroom in the reception, we refused. Nobody appologized to us for ruining our morning, only repeatedly questioned us whether we flushed something to the toilet that broke it. They don't provide electric mosquito coils, only traditional one, and they don't provide matches or lighter. They told us if we need to light the coils we should call them even in the mid night and they will come to our room and light it. Anyway our stay is not entirely unpleasant, but probably would not stay there again. Would recommend to families who like a decent garden in the hotel (just ask the kids to watch the steps in the bathroom area) and have their own vehicle.
