            Nice Hotel for a Getaway”

            Size of the Room, 2 Pools, River Views

            We stayed at the Shiek Istana Hotel in March for a family getaway, and it was lovely. The room was a good value for the money (we stayed during the off season) and we enjoyed the design and ambiance of the hotel. The room was HUGE with a lovely bathroom featuring lots of mosaic tiles, separate tub and shower, and nice carved vanity. The Persian rug in the room was a nice touch, as was the balcony overlooking the Ping River (I believe all rooms have a view of the river). If you couldn't tell, the whole hotel has a Moroccan theme, which is nicely pulled off, but if you are coming to Chiang Mai for the first time, you might find it a bit odd. The location is also a bit to the south side of the town (probably 10 minutes to the night bazaar with your own vehicle). WE loved the two swimming pools set among the Mediterranean gardens, and the breakfast buffet was spot-on. The only disappointment we faced was that we wanted to eat dinner in the Moroccan restaurant on our first night, but it was closed! Overall, the hotel was very nice and we enjoyed our stay!

            I stay here more than 3 times. It is perfect as always. I do appreciate staff service here especially front desk and concierge. They are always helpful and really have service mind. Room are so big and very comfortable. It is really worth comparing to the price we paid. It is so cheap comparing to quality and things you got from here.

            beautiful hotel far from everything”

            surroundings conducive to rest and relax. clean. very friendly staff.

            The rooms and grounds of Istana are really beautiful. You'll think you're in Morocco. Rooms are really nicely decorated. Quiet. romantic. It is a long way from everything, though, so be prepared for that. They do have a shuttle to the city center. We had friends take us around so we did not use shuttle, but judging by the great service and friendly staff, I am sure the shuttle service is fine. The only blemish during our stay was the fact that black water gushed out when we turned on the tap in the washroom. They took us to another room. No explanation given. They have a fully equipped fitness center, which was a great bonus for me. This is not your usual lousy little hotel fitness room with a treadmill and elliptical. It is a full fitness center. Niiiice! Highly reccommend this hotel if you want a nice, quiet hotel, but there is nothing to do in the area. Absolutely nothing. You will need to use the shuttle or taxi.

            This hotel is closed to the airport, makes you easy to go but there is nothing around there. But still, it is worth to visit since the hotel itself is good enough. Try Moroccan food in the restaurant. You are not going to be regretted.

Its a little far from the main stuff in town but we knew that and wanted to stay away from the craziness and have a nice quiet week. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

            Rooms, Outlook, Gardens.

            We stayed for Six nights at the Sheik Istana Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Our room (203) was excellent, large and well decorated. We had a view of the River and the Wat opposite, although higher would have been better. The Garden and landscaping are very nicely done, as well as having a well equipped gym, and excellent Spa facilities. Breakfast was pretty good, and the staff were very attentive. I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again. The Hotel has three shuttle buses per day, at 9am they go to the Worawat market, at 1pm to the old City and at 6pm they take you to the night market. Getting a Taxi was easy and although its South of the City, its only a 200BHT taxi fare or 100BHT in TukTuk.

            Excellent hotel, great facility, great accommodations. Excellent staff performance with excellent service mind. Staff tend to understand customer expectation and do they job to try to exceed that. Location is not far from central of Chiang Mai. 2 swimming pool and big/great fitness center. Hotel decoration is also great, neat and very detail. After you checked in, you will get a key card which grant access to alternate hotel entrance bypass the front desk. This make you feel more like home. I still don't have negative feedback for this and will surely be back to stay in this hotel again.

            This place would be perfect for romance, I shared a room with my sister and we still had a great time, we appreciated all the energy that went into decorating the place and loved the toiletries. . The pool is huge and great for a cool down and the gym is well equipped. The staff were friendly but the hotel wasn't very full and seem to be doing most of its business of its gym memberships. One draw back was the lack of poolside service. I love a cocktail or beer at the end of the day by the pool. The also had a shuttle that went to local attractions a few times a day, the hotel is also a quick ride from the airport.

            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.
