                  Good value for money”

                  Excellent rooms, very clean, housekeeping exceptional, good restaurant. In he middle of Chiang Rai, able to walk everywhere if you wish or a tuk-tuk park at the end of the street.
                  No lifts, although there are only 4 floors the steps are uneven. So be aware and diligent when climbing them.

                  The Starbright is centrally located in Chiang Rai, close to everything, rooms are exceptionally clean - excellent food and well priced bar. Only drawback was no elevator/lift, only 4 flights in total, so won't worry everyone.

                  We had just one night at the Starbright but could happily of stayed longer. Comparitively large room & ensuite, not flash but clean & functional. Breakfast (included in room price) was ordered as required & was good. The bar area, adjacent to the dining room, opened onto the outdoor sitting area on the street front so was good for people watching. Will stay again when next in Chiang Rai.

                  location

                  This hotel was ok, great location shame about the stairs, we had 5 flights of stairs. The water in the bathroom flowed all over the floor because of the design of the bath. You can walk to the bus from the hotel, that was good. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are looking at price and location. research before you book online with a booking company as I am sure it is cheaper to book with starbright.

                  Great location, friendly staff.
                  No elevators. We were on the 5th floor and had to plan our excursions accordingly.

                  We really enjoyed our stay at the Starbright. The location was good...close to the night market and various restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The one draw back was there was no elevator. I would not recommend this for elderly people. They did have a spa and an American breakfast was included which was more than enough to start the day. We would visit again.

                  Free wifi, great breakfast buffet, large room, comfortable bed, nice bathroom.

                  This was an interesting stay. The hotel is located in a great area near the city and a popular street with many bars. We checked in around 4PM, the room was not ready, so they gave us complementary coffee and muffin while we waited 1 hour for the room. The room was great, however the power went out a few times when we were there (as it was out for the whole street). There was a fire in the next room over which filled our room with smoke in the early morning so we had to change rooms. We were told the fire was caused by the power problems. I would stay here again as this was a great hotel with some problems beyond their control.

                  A Mediocre Stay In Chiang Rai”

                  close to bus station, clean room, walking distance to night market.
                  shower was lacking hot water.

                  We arrived in Chiang Rai by bus which was convenient for us to walk to the hotel. Its location is definitely a plus. It was central to downtown Chiang Rai. Staff were pleasant. Only problem we had was the shower was cold. We mentioned this to the staff and someone did come by to try to fix the problem without any success. Breakfast menu was limited but tasty and the service was good. Access to massage boutiques and travel/tour shops were next door and across the street. If the shower was working properly it would have been a better stay.

                  Great Location in Chiang Rai”

                  Location is great with its close proximity to the night market. We found so many nice little places to eat, shops, travel services and of course, the phenomenol thai massage all just steps away from the hotel. The rooms are huge, clean and very comfortable. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
                  The hotel is actually quite small so has a very empty feeling to it. The spa, from what we could see, was closed the 2 days we were guests in the hotel. The restaurant and bar area were always empty. Breakfast was a good continental style meal, but not the expansive buffet you grow accustomed to at this category hotel in Thailand.

                  Upon arriving at the hotel we thought there must surely be some kind of mistake. From outside, it has a kind of budget hotel look about it. The reception, bar and restuarant area downstairs was abandoned and kind of dark. Although the staff on duty was exceptionally friendly and welcoming, the initial impact on arrival is not particularly positive. The room, however, was a great surprise - spacious, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed having the night market just across the road. I would certainly recommend the hotel to other travelers planning a trip to Chiang Mai. Just be warned that your first impression of the place may not be a good one!

It's in a good location in the centre and near to the bus station. Only downside was that the wi fi connection wasn't very good so made internet quite slow.

                  I was a little concerned when I arrived. The outside of the Starbright looked a little old and run down. However, the rooms were fairly spacious and clean. No elevators so best to request a low floor if you have a lot of luggage. Always quiet in the lobby and bar. Breakfast was ok. The location was excellent. About a five minute walk from the night market and bus station. Many restaurants and bars within walking distance.

                  Because apparently no other rooms were available we took one of the two executive suites on the top floor. These are roomy but not quite as upmarket as the photo suggests. Comfortable bed, plenty of room to lounge about, bath with shower over it. For a hotel at its price level there were some deficiencies: no bedside lamps, limited selection of TV stations, broken fittings, the shower floods the bathroom floor and the air conditioner from this and the next room were very noisy. Still, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very handily located close to the centre of town but in a quiet street.

Very near to th night bazaar, internet cafè and there is a department store just opposite.

Clean and so friendly, but not much english spoken. The Tuk Tuk drivers at the bus station never heard about it, but some guy on the sorng-taa-ou actually knew where it was and directed us. Tell you're driver it is next to the WangThong Hotel. But with our short stay we had clean room, hot shower, lots of space and it's a 2 second walk to the night market. Good for our 1 night.
