    Great No Frills Hotel!”

    Great price, awesome location, comfortable room, nice TV, cheap minibar, excellent wireless internet service.
    A little lacking in ambiance, but unless you're hanging out at the hotel, who cares? Also, the website could be vastly improved.

    i stayed at this hotel upon the recommendation of a friend, a chiang mai local. she emailed me her top four recommendations, but said that the empire residence was her number one recommendation for me. however, empire's website was a little weak, and a website for one of the other hotels was really nice, with lots of beautiful photos and easy navigation. i couldn't decide between trusting her recommendation and the slick website from the other hotel, so i decided to spend a few days in each -- a decision i came to regret. i wish now i had just stayed at the empire residence for my entire visit to chiang mai. empire was a little lacking in amenities that may matter to some people, such as a pool, or nice restaurant or bar. but i wasn't in chiang mai to hang out at my hotel, so i didn't care about any of that stuff. i just wanted a clean, comfortable, affordable place to sleep and check my email, and the empire residence was perfect for that. i whole heartedly recommend the empire residence.

    empire residence chiang mai”

    clean, breakfast, extremely helpful and thoughtful staff, great location
    n/a

    Empire Residence Chiang Mai is situated just off bustling Nimmanhieman Street on the northwest corner of Chiang Mai. It sits in the shadow of the sacred mountain temple of Doi Suthep and is in the environs of universities, medical care facilities and first clss dental clinics. Boutique shops and coffee shops abound as do day spas and major shopping centers. Empire Residence is but a short bus ride to Chinatown's street markets, the Night Market, and weekend walking markets. Easy access to superhighways leading to airport, points north [Chiang Rai, Pai and other points north and west], south [Baan Tawai for Lanna handcrafts] and east to Sankamphaeng [upscale teak, celalon and jade products] make Empire Residence a premier property in Chiang Mai with excellent value for money.

    Pretty good place overall”

    Free Wifi! Decent breakfast and central location.

    I have stayed in Chiang Mai at least 20 times over the last 4 years and have stayed in the Kantary Hills (very close), but this time the Kantary Hills was booked and I tired the Empire. It was great for 1/2 the price and Kantary Hills Wifi is also not free. The room was big, clean and bright. It was not a fancy as the Kantary and the gym was not as expensive its 100% worth it. I went to another gym just down the street called Power House which was great and about 8£. Next time I will book a suite at this hotel for sure.

    I'll definately visit and stay here for the whole holidays if I go to Chiang mai again. Great location, tidy and spacious room with balcony & delicious breakfast! If you're planning to take 1 day tour through a travel agency to most of the popular sites (doi sutep, doi intanon, chiang lai,) hotels like here in Nimman haemin are better than those in old town because the pickup time is much later than old town so your morning is way more relaxing.

    Very good location and very clean.”

    We enjoyed our stay at this residence. We did not use any facilities as we were intent on experiencing the area of Nimmanhaemin which this residence is ideally located for,. Just a few seconds walk to Nimman Road and you are in the middle of a bustling area. Our room was large and very clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. Yes, it is directly under the flight path to Chiangmai airport, but this was not a problem. The staff on reception were very helpful and friendly. Maya mall is just 10 minutes walk away, but before you get there it seems you pass all of life ... stylish cafes, restaurants, shops large and small and plenty of opportunities for foot massage plus bars, music and street food. A great area to stay and explore. We loved our stay this time because of the area and the accommodation.

    If you plan to walk around Nimman District, I would recommend The Empire Residence Nimman to be one of your choice. You can literally walk to many famous restaurants and shops without a need of vehicle. The room is not a kind of "WOW" but it surely has everything you probably need.

    3rd time at the empire”

    good sized, spotless rooms with plenty of desk room to work, wireless internet included, unobtrusive staff, plenty of space in drawers to store clothes, comfortable beds.
    a very poor breakfast, weak water pressure in the shower.

    I found the Empire last year when it first opened. It makes a good first impression- it's clean, the staff performs well and does so politely. The hotel is generally quiet. Even those rooms facing Nimman Road aren't too loud though ask for one away from the road if it's available. I spend a lot of time online if I have access in my room and the Empire provides this complimentary service. The location has its pros and cons. It's on the other side of town from the night market for example. The breakfast, however, is so disappointing that after a few days I gave up and walked a few meters down soi 6 to have an edible one in the little cafe. It's as if the restaurant has never seen a western breakfast before. Even after innumerable attempts they still haven't. They don't do a bad job with Thai food it should be said. All in all, the Empire delivers considering the very reasonable price.

    Good location, room cleanliness, reasonable price

    I always choose to stay at this hotel whenever I visit Chiang Mai. Its location is just perfect since it is located at the middle of Nimman road where you can find nice restaurants and chic café. The bedroom is clean and equipped with comfortable bed and good lighting. The bathroom is also clean and at the right size. Wireless internet is provided free of charge in the room but it is rather slow and always disconnected. Breakfast is not too bad although not many choices to select. Hotel staffs are friendly and check-in/check-out is fast. The price is quite reasonable, given the good features mentioned earlier.

    My Delux room was very spacious and equipped like a self contained unit with kitchenette and dining table. The bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom was good. The location was convenient for me. There is immediate access to banks, eateries and transportation on Nimmanhaemin road. I enjoyed the buffet style breakfast though I preferred the Thai dishes and the WiFi was excellent.
    I had no problems

    The Empire Hotel is a newish, modern styled hotel with spacious rooms and good facilities. I was on the fifth floor of seven accessed with fast elevators.My room had a balcony that looked over the side street which is the hotel's entrance, just off the busy Nimmanhaemin road. The location is convenient for activities on the West side of the old town. The Nimmanhaemin road strip is well catered with cafes bars and shops. There is a Bank and Seven Eleven store immediately on the corner. I would definitely use the hotel again

    Staff were very helpful and spoke English well Huge rooms Great TV Hotel is very well maintained and perfect location for food and shopping Bank outside easy to find public transport
    Rooms at the front of the hotel are VERY noisy Mainly Thai breakfast with toast and cereal for western tastes

    The empire is a good hotel with large rooms, friendly and helpful staff and has an excellent location with many shops and all types of restaurants next to it. It has a gym which although small does have everything you could need for a short stay. On the first night i was put in a room at the front of the hotel over the supermarket and got very little sleep as it was VERY noisy. I asked to be moved the next day and they did accommodate me in another room which was far better. The breakfast is good but is mainly Thai orientated with toast and breakfast cereals available for anybody with more western tastes. Good hotel, fantastic location if you don't want to be in the city itself but close to other amenities

    I was surprised by the size of my room for the price I was paying; it was very spacious with a huge family-sized fridge and a nice view of Chiang Mai's surroundings. The breakfast was rather simple, but if you are only there for a couple of days, it's fine. Close to the hotel there are a few nice restaurants and supermarkets, and there's always a taxi waiting to take you to town. It's really close to the airport, the ride only took a couple of minutes. The building is clean and includes a gym - Internet in the room was fast - overall I quite enjoyed my stay.
