    Again, another hotel with an good pool which I think is needed in Asian/very hot countries. Holiday Inn is alright in Europe, a bit basic but serves the needs but in Asia looks like they make more of an effort in décor/customer service etc. Great honest review.

      I agree. We always need a pool out there, as Scots we are just not used to it. I can honestly say that Holiday Inn is far superior in Asia to the hotels in Europe by far. Have stayed in many in the UK too which were no where near as nice

    The deposit would have let me down as well, especially the double price. I agree that the pool looks really promising!

  3. wow an expensive double deposit would have made me pissed. So why did you choose a major US chain rather than all the awesome hostels in Chiang Mai? Just curious because when I was there, there was a plethora of airbnb and unbelievable hostels that were in the heart of the old city.

      We booked it last minute on the ipad in an airport in Bangkok, there wasn’t a lot of choice and we had made a mistake with flights that was leading us to Chiang Mai with no time to research. We had no idea what we were doing really and just wanted something booked!

    I hate when that happens in luxury hotels. That just because we arent dressed up, we’d be given not so good treatment even though we have the money to pay for all of the luxury.

  5. I’m not particularly keen on the Holiday Inn type of hotel – they are generally more business focussed. Shame that you felt badly treated though

    In my old home I had the exact same issue with the air con, can you imagine. So I really feel you on that one, I’ve never gotten used to it and even occasionally moved to the living room!

    It sounds like this hotel has a lot of pros and cons. I’m always on the look out for a good luxury hotel near the Old Town, and the location seems really good, but it’s too bad they made you feel like outsiders. I tend to look for more boutique or indie hotels with more personal service than chain hotels offer for this reason.

  8. The pool looks inviting. It’s a shame that you felt out of place. The staff really makes a lot of difference. Holiday Inn does feel more appropriate for the business traveller.

  9. It looks like a beautiful hotel – but it’s a shame you were made to feel uncomfortable. Some people are quick to judge, you could have been secret millionnaires for all they knew. Also annoying about the noisy air con but I guess in Thailand having noisy air con is way batter than no air con! An honest review, well done.
