            Value for money, staff performance, room comfort

            The owner of the guesthouse was very accommodating and helpful. They have free bikes guests can use to go around the city. The wifi connection is also good. The only problem I had was finding the location of the guesthouse. But all in all, I liked it! Will definitely stay there again when I go back to Chiang Mai.

            Nina's stay at Tara Guest House”

            If you would like to experience comfort, company and culture, Tara is the place to stay in Chiang Mai. The old wooden floors are amazing. You will live like a local and be proud of it.

            Tara Guest House is for anyone who would like to experience Thai hospitality and culture. Its modest amenities are compensated by the house's history, cleanliness, and service. It is a place for both young and old, especially old souls like me. It is one of the remaining old houses within the Old City, hence the sense of culture and Thai every day living can be felt in the house's structure, stair case, floors and even garden.

            Bikes, breakfast, friendly staff

            We enjoyed our 2 nights at this hostel, eggs and bread are provided so you can make your own breakfast in the mornings, and there are bikes you can take out for free. The owner was really nice and helpful. The beds were really hard, even for Thailand standards, but that was pretty minor.

            Staff, location, free water

            I guess because it's a "guest house" it is a one-star but the rooms are big and clean. Extra pillow, blankets, and toiletries are available with ease. Laundry on-site for 40thb a load in a washer ( hang dry in the backyard), complementary water ( chilled in the fridge downstairs) free bikes for exploring, the guy at the front booked our zipline and elephant tour no problem and lent us books about Thailand. Quiet, cute, amazing! Stay here.

            cheap, free bikes and friendly staff

            I only stayed one night but thought the hostel was okay for the value paid. The staff was super friendly though! Unfortunately only one bathroom with joining shower for such a bed dorm room isn't ideal. The bed mattress is too thin and hard. Also if you plan to sleep I recommend earplugs and eye mask.

            I've had a good overall stay at Tara Guesthouse. I quite liked that the house is not directly at a major road with lots of traffic. WiFi works well most of the time. The facilities are basic but more than sufficient. The staff has been friendly and helpful. The kitchen is huge and well equipped. I didn't like the noise of the water fountain in front of the house which turns off at 11pm, the air con of my neighbours room 7 is very noisy and my single bed in room 6 has been rather hard. And remember to take off your shoes before entering the house :-)

            rather clean, central to old chiang mai, affordable.

            although tara guest house was rather decently priced for what we were looking for (we were backpacking), in comparison to the other guest houses and hostels in the area, it was priced slightly higher, when really, it didn't have any more to offer. the staff hardly spoke any english, and upon checking in, we had to wait quite a while before anyone even came out to greet us. the rooms, although rather clean, are quite dated and unpleasant due to the fact that they're outfitted in very dark decor. the large windows do help a little, but the rooms still felt a bit dingy. all in all, the overall feel was not my cup of tea, and if it wasn't for the fact that we had already booked the hotel online, we most likely would not have stayed.
