We have stayed here for several years. The staff is friendly and helpful. The quiet location by the river is perfect for us -- close to wonderful restaurants and easy transportation to anywhere we want to visit.
I have a friend that lived here for years. Nice common areas. Restaurant on site. Right on the river. High marks for cleanliness and good staff. I rarely come back to any hotels. I come back here when I’m in town. Excellent location.
A great find!”
Great location - a quiet place on the river in a garden setting, but conveniently located to markets, short walk to old city. "Tu" from Lanna travel service does a great job planning excursions. I would definitely stay here again!
Lovely guesthouse in a fun part of town”
Great time here and even came back multiple times. Very cheap when booked at the place , not online. Delicious breakfast with a good view. Laundry was very expensive (charged per item) but they did advise me of an alternative around the corner which was only 50thb per kilo.
We have stayed here for years and will continue to do so. This year there is a new solar water-heating system and the showers were less than optimal. The water temperature varies drastically. A bit disappointing but environmentally more friendly. Everything else is so wonderful that I would never consider changing hotels!
Quiet cute guesthouse”
One of the best place to stay close to the night bazaar. Quiet, peaceful with a nice small garden with lots of chairs and even hammocks! Makes you feel at home! The restaurant on site provide good meals too! The room size are quite okay. The personal are all very nice and friendly. Always welcome you with a smile! The location is really nice. Few minutes walk from Kalare night bazaar and also kad luan. Plus lots of restaurants and cafés close by. The only downside will be that there’s no convenience store close by. But I definitely will choose to stay again in the future.
Very good location, quiet and clean. Good for a couple.”
Not my first time at this place and still impressed. Galare Guest House is clean, quiet, plus a lovely restaurant with Ping River view. Their staffs are lovely and helpful. It locates in a walking distance to night bazaar. Across the street from Galare is Ban Ho Mosque community which you'll enjoy Kao Soi, community market (on Friday) and roti!! Anyway, this place is not that huge, we appreciate the calm travelers with good social etiquette.
A very nice place to stay, staff very good they keep the rooms and guest house very clean, ”
I have enjoyed my stay here and would have no hesitation in staying here again and I fully give Galare Guest House a full recommendation as a place to stay in Chiang Mai, it’s location is 5 minutes to Night Bazzar and 10 minutes to Old City walking and it is right on the edge of the river👍
Friendly & lovely guest house”
A very lovely place. The receptionist lady is very friendly and she is always smile to welcome us. I recommend you should try the restaurant here, the food is fresh or and taste ^^. You can both enjoin the food and the river view from the restaurant. The room facilities is not new one but clean and cute. The special thing is that it seems like every thing here is run by the lady, and they make me feel like they are my aunts ^^
Quaint place on the river”
Such a quaint charming place Walking distance to the night market. Beds are harder than most Americans are use to but the room was very comfortable. An older German called us with our bags and he wad quite welcoming and friendly.
V good 4 day stay”
Nice riverside location V friendly helpful family run hotel. Visiting tour agent spoke good English and was v helpful.15 min walk into town not too bad.
Quite, river side, perfect garden”
Good rooms, nice bslcpny and garden, perfect to rest river side restaurant
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
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.
Nice clean warm place to stay ”
Staff are excellent , smiling face all time . Breakfast taste good . The only thing that there was no hair dryer ... We bought food from Warorot market as our dinner, staff offer plates & cutlery , it really feel like a home ..
Nice terrace with river view”
We were here with Loy Kraton. From the terrace we had a great view on the river with the thousands of Krathongs floating by, and the thousands of lampions being launched from and around the bridge. Room is clean. Bathroom quite small. Restaurant is good. Don't know about breakfast: had to leave to catch plane before breakfast.
Lovely little place”
This was by far the best hotel I have stayed at while in Thailand. The hotel is built amongst nature with tall and lush greenery surrounding the place including the river which runs along just where the hotel restaurant is at. The restaurant also served delectable and authentic thai food. It was located all the way to the end of the soi (unlit at night) which made us feel a tad bit unsafe when returning form the local night market (which was really near). The room was of adequate size, the bed was nice, the bathroom and everything was clean too.
Great location, accommodating staff”
Loved it here. About a 10-min walk to the Old City but a mere stone's throw from the daily night market. Reached chiang mai at 7am and Galare had no qualms about checking us in early. Staff were really helpful and cheerful all the time. Rooms were clean and the hotel even left two soap bars and a birthday card for me. A 2- star hotel but 5-star treatment
relaxed atmosphere great value..amazing”
Perfect...food is great and priced low. Have travel service at hotel at great pricing points. Staff friendly and very helpful. Saved 800.00 USD staying here vs. A botigue hotel with stuffy atmosphere and huge prices.
nice classic hotel next to ping river. fantastic!”
It is definitely one of the hotel in Chiangmai that I am going back again especially If I go with my family or girlfriend. The place is located next to ping river which makes the place so romantic and it is also very convenient as it is located nearby Chiangmai night bazaar. For Muslim, the halal street is actually opposite of the hotel :)
