    Location 7.46 /10

    Located in the heart of Chiang Mai, this hotel is just a two minute walk from the night market and shops. The airport is just over 4 mi away.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    With 384 rooms divided into eight categories, the Meridien Chiang Mai is not really what we'd call a small-scale establishment. The common thread throughout the hotel is undoubtedly the space; huge corridors lead to the guest rooms which are also extremely spacious, even when it comes to the basic category rooms.

    With regards to the decor, modern tones and soft colours have been chosen for the carpets and cushions, and the rooms also feature large windows which overlook the city (most of the rooms are on the upper floors). Unfortunately, the windows do not open and you can't help feeling a bit like a fish in a fish bowl, however, they do afford a great view of the Chang Mai skyline. The bathrooms are spacious and comfortable and the decor is refined.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Originally opened in 2008, the entrance of the Meridien Chiang Mai will definitely leave an impression. The large lobby entirely decorated in beige marble with extremely high ceilings welcomes guests as they arrive. The pastel colours and essential lines are an attempt to make you forget the total lack of windows, creating a space that is somewhat closed in on itself. The maximum effort has been made with the resources available, however the large hotel lobby does not invite you to sit and relax as the attractions outside the hotel are too interesting, as in the rest of the country.

    The facilities and the quality of service are impeccable, the only weak point of the hotel being its location. Wedged between a building and a street, it has too many spaces without windows that create a cave-like atmosphere, which is chic and design, but still a cave.

    Only the small swimming pool escapes this sense of confinement; located on the upper floors in amongst some greenery, it has a view over the rooftops of the city.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    As with other hotels in this chain, the Meridien has two restaurants: the main restaurant, the 'Latest Recipe', and 'Favola', specialising in Italian cuisine. The first restaurant offers international and Asian cuisine while the second has an Italian character that is rather surprising for northern Thailand.

    The chef, Gustavo Maurelli, a Canadian-born Italian with a Neapolitan mother and Genoan father, was born in Montevideo in Chile. A citizen of the world, as Plato would say, this chef speaks fluent Italian, Spanish and English... His passion is atomic cuisine, combining fresh and natural ingredients with Italian culinary traditions. The restaurant area echoes the chef's desire to share his art: the kitchen is an open area consisting of a counter with various tables lined at the sides. The only regrettable element is the lack of a view and/or windows, and we think that with nicer decor, everything would be perfect. The menu provides an Italian cuisine that has been expertly and passionately revised by the chef, playing with the ingredients, the shapes and the physical composition of the food and allowing his travels to bring colour to his style of cooking. The presentation of the dishes is perfect. The Favola is worth experiencing, even if you do have to ignore the standard assertion that "it's a shame to eat Italian in Thailand."

    To know

    Based on the 'asset-light' model, the building is owned by a rich Thai businessman, who also owns the popular Chang Beer.
