Pornping Tower Hotel
Ranked #269 of 402 Hotels in Chiang Mai
Reviewed 12 November 2017

Old established Hotel sited over two buildings with one being the actual Tower comprising Deluxe Rooms and better. Stayed in Deluxe with no breakfast included in my room rate. Looked at breakfast on offer and the Standard rooms in original adjoining building and think I made right choice.
It's probably the Standard and Superior Rooms in the old building that generate bulk of negative reviews.
Be aware that even the Tower rooms show sign of dated decode and furnishings, whilst carpeted it been down for a while with some unavoidable stains.
Well located yet a bit on fringe. Easy access to adjoining eateries and night bazar, massage and bars nearby and close enough to Loi Kroc Rd action/attractions.
Has good pool but biggest gripe is that Porn Ping has no gym. Access to gym recommended by Reception didn't work for me with Tuk Tuk etc. For a hotel of this size and Standard with grounds available to not have a gym is very unusual and frustrating.
Housekeeping did a good job, Reception was friendly, pleasant and professional. Roof top bar is available although not well patronised. Drinks a bit pricey.
Has no safe in room and this also is unusual and annoying, safety deposit boxes available at Reception but you need to walk around with this clumpy key.
Had a very good size window with great sunlight and outlook to mountains and across the city. Sadly the pidgeons have made a mess of the windows and area outside the window - not sure what Hotel policy is on keeping this clean. See picture uploaded.
Other than that it worked well for me and happy to recommend if you accept the mentioned annoyances as the price was good.

Room Tip: Avoid Standard and Superior rooms. Upgrade to Deluxe.

Requested an upper floor room with a view and a large bed when we booked, got a low floor room with 2 single beds and a view of a wall !
We were in an older part of the hotel and the room was very run down and overdue for a make over.
The biggest problem was the carpet which was very old, stained, and very smelly.
The location was great, just across the car park to the famed Night Bazzar and the buffet breakfast very good, but you can do a lot better for the price in the Nigh Bazzar area of Chiangmai.

The hotel has shown improvement in the rooms as they are in the process of replacing the fire alarm system. The staff at the check-in counter were also more friendly and worked quickly especially during this Loy Krathong festival. The rooftop restaurant which used to cater to ala carte dining during this festival in the past, now charged THB1199 for a buffet during this festival which actually turned us away.
The hotel is nicely located to the center of action during this festival and the hotel really need to buck up after years of neglect and we can see more and more smaller hotels sprung up around the area.

In staying at the pornping tower for over a month now ,i have experienced consistently an attentive and beyond excellent service by all the staff ( front desk , housekeeping , restaurant , room service ) as well as an unflinching effort to make my stay here a 5 star experience !!! from unsolicited upgrades to knowing my favorite foods ,,,is there better hotels " yes" but the price , location and service is superb and iam quite happy in stating this .. i give it a 3 1/2 star hotel with 5 star service , and deserving of the " Land of Smiles " award!!

For the price, this accommodation works as its located near to night bazaars, riverbank and cafes/bars. The hotel is outdated/stucked in time and somewhat feels quiet though its a huge property. Very strict with number of people in the room. No hair dryer, iron and water heater in the room.
