“Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Tara's Place is run by an exceptional staff led by hotel manager, O. We arrived after a long day out and around Bangkok only to discover the hotel was overbooked due to an error on AsiaWeb. O apologized profusely and had arranged for a free Tuk-Tuk ride to a new hotel with a pool and a lower price. She drove with us and ensured we were comfortable and cared for. I would highly recommend Tara's Place. The staff is professional and the entrance is well stocked with freshly baked goods from O's mother's bakery. Don't miss out on a good thing!

The staff are amazing and will do anything to help you out, they let us use there printer to print out flight tickets and even let us phone the UK when our cards got blocked, all for free! The rooms are very clean, wifi is excellent. Only downside from a female point of view, there is no mirror in the bedroom, only one in the bathroom. Very handy location, 5 minute walk to Khao San road. Free tuk tuk shuttle comes in handy and there are always taxis outside. I would also advise writing down the name of the road the hotel is on, as it is new not many tuk tuks know where it is when you are trying to get back! Would definitely stay again.

been to BKK khaosan area many times,but this was the best stay at Tara Place so far.
the rooms are tidy clean,though a bit small in size.the wifi was working excellent and the staff @ reception counter were just awesome.they really try to make you feel comfortable from the first second you enter with always a friendly smile on their face.
the location is also very central,close to khao san and rambuttri rd and just a stroll of 10 min.away.outside on sam sen road you ll find lots of shops,7/11's ,bar's and all kind of road life.
lack was the missing room service and in room breakfast,but it was compensated by a very nice and modern coffeeshop right in front of Tara's,serving western breakfast,lunch n dinner as well.
my room was located on the rearside of the building,very quite night time,but getting noicy in the morning with housekeeping and reckless guests,slamming doors and talking loudly on the hallway's.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the rearside 4th floor,they do have elevator.

The staff is absolutely the main strength of Tara Place.
There are usually 3 or more staff at the front desk, and all of them is very agile, friendly, helpful and speak English fluently.
- I emailed them before booked the rooms for asking some questions, and their response is very fast and clear. I also emailed another hotel, but sadly there's no response.
- If you get lost on the way to the hotel, call and ask the staff to speak with the taxi driver for directions. Some taxi drivers are hardly speak or understand English.
- If you ask some questions like 'How to get there...', 'What is the best alternatives..', they nailed it.

The location is near Khaosan Road, but far from the noise. It is also surrounded by 711 and ATM machine next door. You can ask the staff for other services nearby.

The room is very clean. Fresh water in the fridge is free and delivered every day. Free wifi, free snack at the lobby. There's also luggage room and free tuk tuk service to Grand Palace at the morning (8.00, 10.00 or 12.00), and to Khaosan Road at night (18.00). The lobby also has two computers we can use for 20 minutes (or more if there's no other people in line).

Totally recommended.
