Prefect location, but fire in next room”
This was an interesting stay. The hotel is located in a great area near the city and a popular street with many bars. We checked in around 4PM, the room was not ready, so they gave us complementary coffee and muffin while we waited 1 hour for the room. The room was great, however the power went out a few times when we were there (as it was out for the whole street). There was a fire in the next room over which filled our room with smoke in the early morning so we had to change rooms. We were told the fire was caused by the power problems. I would stay here again as this was a great hotel with some problems beyond their control.
Best location in Centre of Town”
overall this small hotel is in perfect central location,can walk easily to anywhere and all things within 3-4 streets. night bazaar a huge plus as a very relaxing place to go oin evenings with eateries within and micro thai folk shows popping on and off stage. i would stay again next time in chiang rai.
Great Hotel, awesome”
The breakfast is really standard.. but the rooms are amazingly bigm good bed, good tv, good location, close too many temples, busstation and night market and other markets... Close to the bars if you want to and food market
Beautiful Hotel..awesome experience.”
want to stay there again. chiang rai is beautiful..everything. want more time there...so beautiful. road motorbike through the mountains from chiang mai to chiang rai..never forget as long as i live. this hotel topped it off...icing on the cake. outside of hotel doesn't look great but once you are inside excellent. stay performance # 1. i told them about almost running out of gas on my small size...120cc scotter on 180 kilometer trip. he rigged up a small gas can that i could put between my legs in the middle of the bike..my backpack on top of that...so no worries going back. small gesture...no charge..always get my repeat business. can not recomment enough. true thai friendly with a smile.
This hotel was ok, great location shame about the stairs, we had 5 flights of stairs. The water in the bathroom flowed all over the floor because of the design of the bath. You can walk to the bus from the hotel, that was good. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are looking at price and location. research before you book online with a booking company as I am sure it is cheaper to book with starbright.
Decent hotel centrally located”
The place looked like a pokey little guest house on arrival. Checkin did not go smoothly due to the limited english of the night staff (day staffs english was fine). The room however was a surprise - very nice, large and clean with TV,fridge,kettle,etc. Wifi was free but available only in the lobby and free breakfast. Comfortable bed and quiet road meant a good nights sleep.
Big &nice rooms but lousy service ”
it doesnt look like a hotel. The deluxe room is big, well designed & clean yet it looks little bit creepy as the hotel with few rooms are not fully occupied. The service is pretty bad. There are no receptionist at night & the receptionist cant speak fluent English. The location is nearby the bazaar yet the bazaar is closed very early.
friendly staff and close to everything”
we where able to go on a hilltribe trek to local village and see amazing waterfall. lunch was included in the price and finished of the day with a relaxing bath in hot spring. hotel in close to transport, restaurants and night bazaar. breakfast was included with the deal. excellent time! all the staff her were very friendly and helpfull with information. most staff were able to speak a little english which was helpfull.
Right in the middle of town”
I was a little concerned when I arrived. The outside of the Starbright looked a little old and run down. However, the rooms were fairly spacious and clean. No elevators so best to request a low floor if you have a lot of luggage. Always quiet in the lobby and bar. Breakfast was ok. The location was excellent. About a five minute walk from the night market and bus station. Many restaurants and bars within walking distance.
Nice, simply hotel in convenient location”
the deluxe suite we had was a massive room which was unnecessary for us but if you needed space for reorganising your stuff - this would be the place! it was a basic room but very clean and well set out. the location was very close to the night markets and very convenient to cafes and shopping.
Better than expected ”
Surprised that the room was so quiet and large right in the middle of town. Great location near the night market and massage salons. Only bad thing was the bed... very hard, more so than the usual Thai bed.
Star Bright Hotel - Chaing Rai”
We stayed at this small boutique hotel for three nights, the rooms were large and very clean. Hotel staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful and they served a good breakfast. The only real downside was that there was no swimming pool, the location was good though as we were very close to all the restaurants and bars in the evening without being so close as to be noisy.
A Star not so bright at all”
Despite the large room and very friendly staffs, also the central location, this hotel is still a let-down. I was not pleased with having to climb up to 5th floor each time i come back from a tiring trekking tour. The air-cond is excessively noisy at night which kept me awake most of the night. The flooding in the bathroom after each time I take a shower was horrendous! I used up all 4 large towels to soak the water up, still almost took me 15 min to clean the water up, what more can i say?! Give this one a miss and book the Wiang Inn, which should be better than this "Boutique" hotel.
The hotel is in a very good position. All the relevant place ( night market, shops,etc.) and events ( Sunday Market, Clock Tower ) of Chiang Rai are within reach. The breakfast is simple but good and the hotel is very quiet. The rooms are clean and broad : good for have a period of relax with a good company ! I 'thinking to return with my mate......
OK for a overnight stay”
The stay would be perfectly OK if not for the plumbing problem in the bathroom. During our stay, the bathroom would be flooded each time after our shower in the bathtub. The hotel staff did try hard to solve the problem but somehow they could only provide towels to soak up the water. I think the hotel really need to take a hard look at the plumbinbg of the bathroom.
Great Location in Chiang Rai”
Upon arriving at the hotel we thought there must surely be some kind of mistake. From outside, it has a kind of budget hotel look about it. The reception, bar and restuarant area downstairs was abandoned and kind of dark. Although the staff on duty was exceptionally friendly and welcoming, the initial impact on arrival is not particularly positive. The room, however, was a great surprise - spacious, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed having the night market just across the road. I would certainly recommend the hotel to other travelers planning a trip to Chiang Mai. Just be warned that your first impression of the place may not be a good one!
Excellent value for money”
The hotel is very small but very nice. The first impression was not so good from the outside but once we saw the room we were very happy. Also the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was a choice of american, continental or asian and it was served very nicely. Very good air condition althought we did not use it. Tv with a lot of English channel. Very near to th night bazaar, internet cafè and there is a department store just opposite.
location, large rooms”
excellent location, walking distance to bus station and the night bazaar. the staff was very helpful and extremely nice. breakfast was tasty and good options. the rooms are huge! very nice bathrooms too! after being on a 2 day boat from laos it was so nice to have a good, clean, comfy room to clean up in.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Starbright. The location was good...close to the night market and various restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The one draw back was there was no elevator. I would not recommend this for elderly people. They did have a spa and an American breakfast was included which was more than enough to start the day. We would visit again.
Great location in downtown”
About 1/2 block off the main street and 1 block from the entrance to the night market. Great location, very friendly staff, standard American breakfast included, rooms were large, fairly soundproof with good air con. Location was great - could easily walk anywhere downtown.
