Nice guest house with atmosphere”
I like this guesthouse. It definetly is worth booking, close to night market. It overlooks the river and has a good atmosphere. The rooms are nice, however, not huge. It has a very nice garden, where you can sit.

Exceptional”
We stayed at the Galare Guest House for 12 nights in the middle of February, 2018. We found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The location is very close to the Night Market, looks out over the river, and is within walking distance of the Old Town. The staff and especially the tour operator, Doo, are very friendly and efficient. The small restaurant is open from 7:00 am to 4:30 pm and serves a limited menu of good quality food. The only down sides is that the room was fairly dark and the bathroom small.

Peace on the River”
Very well positioned boutique hotel on river Ping at reasonable price. Quiet. Once a hangout for missionaries on leave from converting hill tribes. River cafe with okay breakfast but nothing else except view and ambiance.

Breakfast, Play area, location, staff”
Four great things: The breakfast is actually quite tasty and reasonably priced. There is a small garden area for kids to run around. The location is pretty convienient as its' located near the night market; and the staff was very friendly. The rooms were a little worn down. Not super clean... hair on the floor, very stained towels. Bad smell from the bathroom. But it worked. It's not a bad place at all; but for the price there are newer, cleaner places around that are similar.

Overpriced and old room”
The room was noisy, in desperate need of renovation and a new bed. There are plenty of better options in Chiang Mai and I’m not sure how this guest house has received such great reviews.

Awesome location. Great value.”
Beds are soft. Breakfast at Guesthouse is OK - bacon and eggs, plus some other choices, but for the same price, you can get nicer breakfasts and real coffee a block away. 5 mins walk to Riverfront and trendy bars including the Bus Bar. Really friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely return

Good”
The environment of the guesthouse was quiet and serene. I enjoyed the stay, except that there is no elevator to the top floor, very inconvenient especially for guests with larger luggages.

Chiang Mai Hospitality”
Stayed here for 4 nights with my wife and a Thai-speaking bestfriend. It was my first time traveling to Thailand. Came here to meet my office interns from Chiang Mai University while traveling to tourist attractions around Chiang Mai. We arrived there in the evening. I'm surprised while I'm on my reaching to Reception , the lady boss know who I am. The check-in was smooth. The room is ok and comfortable. The garden is scenic, since it is situated in front of Ping river; a nice setting for your breakfast. The location is near to Night Bazaar, around 15 minutes of walking. On the last night at there, we reached the guest house around midnight and had requested for airport transfer on very last minute (hours before our flight back to Kuala Lumpur )with the night-shift caretaker uncle. He called the lady boss and he said the lady boss will ask her staff to transfer us to the airport at 3am in the morning. Hospitality at its best! Overall, we recommenced this place.

This guest house sits at the end of a quiet alley, just a short walk to the night market and the old town of Chiang Mai. Comfy room and helpful people!

Quiet area close to the river”
A short walk to the night bazaar. The street running parallel has a great number of food, bar, spa options, etc. We didn't end up trying the restaurant at the guest house as we had too many other places on our list to eat. The guest house room was spacious and had a gorgeous interior, it was a great place to return to at the end of a tiring day. They had lots of pamphlets about tour and activity options if you're into that, and the staff seemed keen to help organise things - although we happily planned ourselves.

The wonderful old charm of Chainag Mai 30 years ago! Not the young, plastic hipster place of 2017 but rather a simple reterat for the socially, environmentally, politacally minded crowd.

Great Bargain Old Chiang Mai”
This is a great guest house. My favorite place to stay. I have been coming here for 15 years. Chiang Mai is changing, but if you want to see how the city used to be this is a great little guesthouse with a great location near the night market and the best Khao Soi restaurant.
