Okay for the Swimming Pool
This was once one of the best hotels in Udon Thani. A decade ago you'd have been hard pressed to find better and even in 2010 it was very good. Udon Thani has however since undergone rapid development and there is much more to do and see here. The city area is now more concentrated to near Central Plaza and UDTown. A few years ago the latter, which is a large outdoor shopping mall didn't exist and since it has, Central Plaza has become a huge shopping mall having an $88 million USD upgrade a few year back. This is the area most visiting Udon Thani city would want to stay. Unless here for adult activities in which case there are hotels on Soi Sampantanit which is nicknamed Soi Fai Deng (Thai for: Red Light Road). This all is the first issue with Ban Chiang Hotel is it is no longer near much of what Udon Thani offers. Meanwhile they have let this once beautiful property become worn down. I visited here yesterday and while I'm not sure if it was just renovations the Karaoke place that was once there was closed. It did look like it was maybe undergoing renovations. The final thing left that might make this hotel worth staying is the swimming pool. The actual pool itself is kept clean as far as water treatment is concerned. The reason why is this is where many Thai families take their children here for swimming lessons. If you ever get to observe this it is almost sad to see as they are all quite militant about it, and some of the smallest kids cry but do learn to become serious swimmers. I'm not talking only how to swim, but rather swimming fast, with proper stroke, learning various styles. Even some kids that look 3-4 years old are zipping across the pool coming up for breath and going through other actives. You'll also notice the type of guests using it in that being an adult there as children leave the pool area almost all will wai you as per Thai customs. All that besides the point. The pool is okay and while not massive is fairly large. The area surrounding it isn't the best, as there are not too many lounge chairs and the plastic grills that handle the overflow are a bit aged, but the actual inside the pool for swimming is good. There are also changing rooms, toilets and an outdoor shower right at the pool. If staying here for the pool, this is most ideal during hours children are in school. The reason why is they have these swimming lessons going on other times, and also anyone can come use the pool for a fee of 60 baht for adults, 40 baht for children and the bulk using it are under one of those two as opposed to being hotel guests. I swam here yesterday and did enjoy it, just the property has now become aged. All would be fine if the pricing for staying in the hotel reflected the no longer too ideal location, and the hotels condition. However this is most often priced similar to some of the best hotels in Udon Thani and for that price one can do much better.

Won't go back to stay
The room smells, bed incredibly very old and too soft, bathroom is nothing fancy tho quite clean, simple breakfast probably because not too many guests here during my stay. I won't go back there if I have other choices.

Ban Chiang Hotel Looking tired
On first appearance the hotel is very grand even has its own very large wine shop ! The hotel has a very large lobby, banqueting rooms and a large pool (although did not use), coffee shop (50 baht most drinks) and a large dinning room which is where breakfast is severed. Breakfast is buffet style and has a very good selection of Thai and western dishes and they will cook you an omelette fresh. But having said all of that this hotel is trying to still live on the grandeur of the past I think, this was obviously a high quality hotel in the past but is not at its best anymore. The reception staff seemed to have forgotten how to smile in the land of smiles and any question was answered in a short reply no extra information supplied just an answer. The room was large and had all the usual: room safe, TV, fridge, bottled water, arm chairs plus a kettle and cups for making tea or coffee but no actual tea or coffee to make ! I stayed on two occasions in a 7 days time slot and the first room looked like it had not been cleaned fully with a lot of things on the floor as if it had not been vacuumed and an old food bag in one of the draws. They could have done with some kind of booklet to explain what was available in the hotel and how to use the bedside control console for the lights and TV ! The bathroom in room 901 was looking very tired with black mould, cracked and dirty tiles, toilet, tap and shower fittings dirty and lose, even the towels looked old plus hairs on the floor. Although the second room bathroom was looking better. The 8th floor is what they call the excutive floor so go for a room on this floor as I think they look after the rooms better here. Did not try the restaurant or café and they charge for WiFi. Location was about the best thing for this hotel with plenty of local food stalls and a night market just a short walk away plus a couple of shopping malls a tuktuk ride away, ask for a town map from reception when you arrive It’s a nice hotel for 1000 baht a night but the room cleanliness lets it down badly and so for the price it’s an average hotel and if only want a single or couple of nights then its ok for the price but for longer you can find better in Udon Thani.

There is better !!
Stayed there last week only one night, myself and wife 1300 one night, ok not expensive but will never stay again. Stayed there 4 times in last 2 years, but now its so run down, rooms smell bad, air con no good , balcony windows dont open,carpets covered in cigarette burns, and dirty. Wi fi , forget it pay 100 baht but keeps disconing, if you can get a signal. Breakfast very average, swimming pool big but need a voucher from reception, tiles missing, alot, basically in very bad shape. There are many new hotels in Udon for the same money, and ten times better ! This hotel is out the way and doomed, sorry but they aint invested anything back in to this hotel for years.

Avoid this hotel like the plague
This is probably the seediest and most awful hotel I've ever stayed in. I should note that I travel frequently, especially in Asia, so that I can compare. However, Ban Chiang was the worst I've ever been in. 1) They insisted in prepayment in full, although we had several major cards 2) Even the so-called "WiFi internet" must be paid daily in cash 3) Most staff does not even speak basic english 4) Rooms are shabby and worn out. Reasonably clean, but no upkeep for ages 5) Furniture is wobbly, outdated and uncomfortable 6) Pool is across the parking lot, only 3 deckchairs usable. the other dozen is broken. Staff pretends not to understand when asked politely for something (and yes, I DO tip for service, LOL) 7) Breakfast isn't worth getting up for. Dishes not all too clean, selection pretty limited, service non-existent 8) Room phones work only occasionally 9) WiFi internet is hardly usable. Permanently logs out users, is unsecured and doesn't allow VPN use. CRAP. 10) Bathroom can be best described as "yuckie". Repairs with different types of tiles, lots of silicone and plaster, residue of black moldy spots. Pipes leaking. Tub small and shower in tub, unfit to be used for people over 5 ft / 160 cm 11) TV approx from 1980, no HBO or alike available 12) For a daily rate of about 1100 Baht for a deluxe room it's not worth it. I've stayed in pleasant 2-star accomodations, but this 3-star is really the seediest place I have ever been. The 3-star Napalai Hotel in Udon (which was booked out) is also well-worn, but with acceptable service and working equipment as well as edible food and nice pool. The Ban Chiang can be recommended only for by-the-hour use, if at all.
