Wiang Inn Hotel

There are several of these large, three star-ish, mid-range hotels in Chiang Rai and whilst we’re sure some of the others are equally good we’ve included Wiang Inn due to its central location.

Photo of Wiang Inn Hotel

From the same era as the Wangcome Hotel -- the two do look very similar and were obviously built around the same time by the same architect -- but Wiang Inn has slightly better maintained rooms of the two. Their large pool is a welcome find and the complimentary buffet breakfast very good. Rooms are what you’d expect from a mid-range hotel so; tea and coffee facilities, cable TV, WiFi, en-suite bathroom, pleasant decor and furnishings and comfortable beds

Wiang Inn is on Phaholyothin Rd; adjacent to the bus station, a stone’s throw from the night bazaar and set back far enough from the main round that noise isn’t an issue. It isn’t surrounded by persistent massage parlour girls as is Wangcome, but they do have their own more discreet massage, and up-market karaoke services, in the rear of the building. Popular with tour groups, conferences and local visitors, it’s a large hotel and does get busy during high season. In low season however you may come across some good internet deals and all round it’s not a bad choice if you prefer the large hotel environment to smaller resort style. Helpful staff and reasonable levels of English spoken at reception and their in-house restaurant and bar.
