This was probably the best major city place I've stayed. The rooms are nice, but most important to me is that it be CLEAN. This place was great. The rooms are super pretty, beds a little firm (not due to a thin mattress, just firm), but overall it was awesome. The best part of this hotel though is hands down the staff. They are probably the best staff I've come across at this price point which is saying a lot as I've been in a LOT of hotels. Great English, always willing to help. Location is OK, though you need to tuk tuk pretty much everywhere, but Bangkok is so spread out you can't really pick a location that will change that reality.

Definitely recommend!

This place is the equivalent of a boutique Manhattan hotel without the NYC prices. I was very impressed. Euro-sized rooms, not huge, but very comfortable. AC gets really cold & there's a lift big enough for you AND your luggage :) It's in a great location, we walked to/from dinner in the backpackers area and felt safe; get a tuk-tuk if you're heading downtown or the mall area. They offer 1-way tuk-tuks to all main attractions at no charge. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. And if you're in the mood for a large breakfast before heading out, check out the cafe around the corner (facing the same street, just next to the spa; they serve great coffee!).

We stayed here for three days. On our early arrival we could check in directly what was great.
We had a very nice family room and a scond room, both very clean spacious and a good airco. You can take coffee in the lobby for free.
Hotel offers a great tuktuk service to a couple of tourist places and also the Phra Ar Thit pier is at a walking distance, nice to take the longtail for transportation. Just buy the ticket at the desk or on the express line, not from people on the streets.
Also a very friendly staff!

Lodgings are arguably better than a budget chain hotel, at maybe 60% the price. Super clean, hotel staff speaks good English (somewhat rare in Thailand!) and is very helpful with getting taxis, directions, etc. Only real complaint is that sound isn't buffered well so you can hear doors slam and people talking outside your room late into the night. If you get the provided breakfast, you do get a full American-style serving (among other cereal, pancake options), but the quality is nothing spectacular -- just sufficient. Two-minute walk to the expat-popular Adhere blues bar, a neat hole-in-the-wall with live music that Western rags (e.g. NYT) love. Maybe a 15-minute walk to Khaosan road, though that street has turned into a tourist trap. If you want to burn 1-2 hours of walking (worth it!), can see basically everything in the old city in an afternoon.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the elevators so you won't hear drunk people coming in late at night while...

We stayed at Tara Place for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay.
The hotel is very comfortable, the staff is extremely nice and speaks fluent english, the room was very clean and comfortable and the location is good - a 7 min walk to Kao san and Rambutri (the hotel has a tuk tuk shuttle to these places too).
We also recieved 2 bottles of water every day and in the lobby you can prepare tea, coffee and eat cookies and muffins for free.

it was really surprising that this hotel was so good since it is really cheap too, and we would definetely stay there again.

We arrived at Tara Place on 25th May. We only spent the one night here as we only had a one night stay in Bangkok. The staff were friendly upon arrival and checked us in quickly. Bags were taken to our room for us and it was a very clean and Modern room.
The area is quiet, so you are able to get a good night's sleep but you're not too far away from Koh san road, so you get the best of both worlds.
The hotel have their own Tuk Tuk and will take you to places for free if you ask at reception. We got taken to Koh San road and i think this took about 5 minutes to get there, if that!
There is also free wifi and computers in the lobby area just by reception.
Overall, i would say this is a very good hotel and would stay there again! 10/10.

I have travelled a lot and this has been one of my greatest experiences. This hotel is affordable, clean, very well located, offers a very nice breakfast but above all the staff is just amazing. They are always there to help you, at any time. They give you tips and make you feel at home and safe. If I ever go back to Bangkok, I will definetely stay at Tara. Thanks for this great experience, you made it even more special.
