A most pleasant stay at the Ping Nakara Hotel. The decor of the hotel is of exquisite luxurious taste placing us in our minds in the early 1900's whilst offering the latest comforts and technology. The staff is pleasant and attentive. As an added bonus just adjacent to the hotel there is an equally beautifully done garden restaurant, Nakara Jardin,...

After staying for 3 nights in a budget guesthouse, we decided to splurge for our last 2 nights on some really nice accommodation. Ping Nakara did not disappoint!

We recently stayed at The Ping Nakara for the third time and would highly recommend it for a couple of days in the city.

This hotel is overpriced for what you get. Period. I don't know how it's supposedly a five star hotel. Realistically, it's a three star. We stayed for three nights on a honeymoon trip and it was the most disappointing of the five hotels we stayed in throughout Asia. Why, you ask? The hotel is not historic (built in 2009), but...

Dear Guest, Thank you for this detailed comment on our hotel. While we appreciate the thought and time that went into the review, we must take issue with some of the points as they are not factually correct. We clearly explain on our website that our hotel design follows the era of colonial houses in Chiang Mai (we also post...

We booked this hotel in Chiang Mai. We received a small gift of two small elephants, very thoughtful. The spa was great, lovely ambiance and treatment. Was nice having breakfast at the pool. We liked the library room. The pool was great to swim in, but you need to use it while the sun is overhead.
