This hotel is located out of the way from the main city of Chang Mai. However, the taxi is only about $ 6 USD each way to the main area and so it is well worth it if you want to get away from the hustle. Additionally, the hotel has a shuttle at set times to take you to the...

I stayed in a lovely room on the fourth floor with a great view on the river and a pagoda. The restaurant offers nice food - I loved the Khao Soy! The breakfast is varied and you can have a very fresh coffee from the coffee machine. The only drawback is the current renovation that will be finished by October....

This was our 2nd visit this year, and the service was even better this time. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, always smiling, and they really went out of their way to make our visit even more comfortable. Once again, the food was delicious, the breakfast is part buffet and hot dishes cooked to order, surely the preferable...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Sheik Istana Hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The pool is lovely and for the most part of our stay we had the pool to ourselves. But it's the staff that make this hotel, we were fortunate enough to deal with Mr Noom who is exceptional. He goes beyond...

Situated on the river just out of town proper, this magnificent property is replete with all the trimmings for a truly luxurious stay. We enjoyed a fabulously large Suite complete with kitchen facilities, indoor swing-lounge and mosaic-tiled bathroom decorated in such opulent detail to make you feel almost like royalty. The whole property is a beautiful piece of Moroccan-styled art...

Everything is great about this hotel. Is comfortable. Room is spacious and bright. The breakfast is nice. You'll definitely find this hotel unique as it is based on Moroccan style. However, the very downside is the sound insulation. You can hear noise from the next room and it can be quite irritating if you want a good relax after a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sheik Istana is ideally situated on the Ping River, the main river that runs through the city, in one of the most beautiful locations in Chiang Mai. All attraction areas are all within easy reach. The design of the 35 luxuriously appointed guest rooms was inspired by Moroccan and Asian architecture, making the hotel ideally suited for a romantic getaway or honeymoon; its convenient location and beautiful, cosy and elegant atmosphere will however equally appeal to business people. Relax and take in the stunning views of Wat Chedi Lium, one of the ancient temples in Wiang Kum Kam,from your guestroom terrace and have yourself pampered by our friendly and professional staff. ... more   less
