“Attentive & personal service in a great location, fabulous Thai food with a contemporary twist”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

Having split our two weeks in Chiang Mai over two great hotels, The Tamarind Village and The Chedi Hotel we concluded that the boutique Tamarind won us over for great value fabulous Thai food, familial comfort and attentive friendly service. Great central location with dining options nearby, coffee shops and the obligatory but very friendly 150 Baht Thai massage up the street, couldnt ask for anything more. So good we came back for our farewell meal. Almost forgot the private cooking lesson from the sous chef, where we enjoyed learning more about the culture and ingredients of this wonderful cuisine.

This hotel has the best location, located in Old City. The staff is kind and helpful and the rooms were clean and cozy, while still being in a natural setting. The breakfast was wonderful with a large array of fruits from Thailand and traditional dishes. I also enjoyed eating across the street at Hot Chili Restaurant and walking the Sunday market which is on the same street as the hotel!

This hotel is situated sound in the Old City in Chiang Mai. The workers cater to your every need. They make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It was great to stay with family and friends. The breakfast that is included has the best options out of any hotel i have ever been to and i have visited over 30 countries on 4 different continents. I would highly suggest staying here Affordable, Classy, and Beautiful.

Room Tip: I enjoyed my 2nd floor living.

This was our first visit to Chiang Mai and we wanted to stay at a hotel which didn't have the feel of a large, impersonal hotel. We chose the Tamarind Village based on it's TripAdvisor reviews (and the hotel's website) and we were not disappointed. It's a lovely, well maintained property. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast team could not have been any nicer or attentive. The Lanna style architecture and surrounding landscaping created a charming and quiet refuge in the center of the Old City. Cons: Our room was somewhat on the small side, but it was well appointed and very clean. Restaurant and Spa were pricey compared to off-property options; but, both were very good. Pros: Very convenient location - lots of sites and restaurants within walking distance. Excellent staff. Good value. We would stay there again.

The Tamarind is a peaceful & serene space tucked away in the old city of Chiang Mai. The service, from online reservations to airport pick up through check out was first class. When he had a slightly yapping pooch somewhere it the neighborhood interrupt our sleep, we were given a new room and upgrade right away. We went of the recommendation of good friends and we will pay it forward to others.

We spent four nights with the hotel and every one of our encounters with the staff were top notch. They are considerate, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the daily outings were a lot of fun. The location is perfect with the majority of Chiang Mai's attractions within a short walk or Tuk Tuk ride.

Room Tip: We had the Deluxe room and it was worth the cost. The included breakfast is also a great way to star...

Loved this hotel. we spent 3 nights here at the end of our honeymoon in Thailand and it was the best of all 3 hotels. We loved the fact that it was within walking distance to the old city and that the night market happened right at the end of the drive, without causing any noise disturbance to the serenity of the hotel. the staff were attentive and lovely, the pool, whilst a little shallow, was refreshing to dip into at the end of the day after visiting many temples, markets and having massages... must admit that we did not visit the spa in the hotel as the prices were steep in comparison to what was offered within walking distance away... the breakfast was good, I had lunch there too, but mostly ate out cheaply in the great eateries all around. we had a Lanna Deluxe Room - compact but again great chic boutique feel and nice touch giving you 4 complimentary bottles of water, as boy you need them in all the humidity! We would go back in a flash.

Room Tip: Our Lanna deluxe was perfect - particulary the fragrant jasmine welcome bouquet on arrival, was so b...
