“Great stay in old city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

The location of this hotel is fantastic. Originally we were trying to decide between here and something closer to the night market. We were very happy to have picked Tamarind. All the major wats are within walking distance and the general area lacks the commotion and riffraff around the market. This hotel is quiet, the rooms are very well appointed, and the pool is great. If you are thinking of coming to Chiang Mai you can't go wrong staying here.
We stayed in one of the suites, which was well worth it.

I can't believe I've waited so long to review this hotel. It was my life's dream to travel to Asia, and when I decided to go to Chiang Mai, I combed TripAdvisor and every possible source for a hotel. I was a little hesitant to stay in the middle of town, but this was the best hotel of my entire trip. It is the perfect balance of urban location and romantic getaway.
The staff is beyond fabulous. I had many questions before, during, and even after my stay and they were kind and informative at every turn. I was give a cake for my birthday, we had massages at the hotel, and ate there several times because it was so easy and the food was so good.
It was very hot when we visited, so the pool was a fantastic advantage (although I do agree with other comments that it can be a bit crowded in the afternoon.) And we liked the other guests and made friends with one family.
The location is just perfect, because you will be able to walk almost anywhere you want. Also the tours that they arranged, to Patara and to the shrine in the mountains, were just perfect for us.
I would never, ever stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: We stayed in the little individual house next door to the spa and it was the most amazing room of ou...

My wife and i spent six lovely days at the Tamarind village, situated centrally in the old town of Chaing Mai its easy to get around the tourist sites and has bars and shops close by. The room was pretty basic but had every thing we needed,the food was very good and the staff very helpful. The hotel overall is an oasis you can escape to from all the hustle and bustle of the outside world and we would go back without hesitation,

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel (3 nights). The location is amazing, right in the middle of the old town. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and very quiet. The food is also very good and the staff very helpful. However the rooms are very small but clean and comfortable.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This lovely hotel is perfectly placed in the heart of Chiang Mai, close to the must-see temples. Swimming pool very welcomed. The room was OK, but not more - however, bathroom and amenities were great.
Breakfast is really good, with a lot of choice - from to Thai to international meals.
Will definitely return, and strongly recommend.

First of all I don't normally write reviews but we have just come back after spending four nights in the tamarind village. It's a quiet get away right in the middle of the old city.
Truly fantastic stay at the Tamarind Village. We walked through the main entrace through a bamboo driveway which is beuautiful this makes you feel like uou have come to a little hideaway. The hotel is very peacful and the staff are fantastic. The room was lovely with daily fruit placed in the room. The room was tidy and well kept the furniture was very nice. There was even a little incense burner in the room which helped with the mosquitos and made the room smell lovely. The attention to detail was fantastic. My six year old daughter loves the place and wants to go back.
The pool was always tidy and the staff always asked if you needed anything. My wife liked the daily hand massages abd used the spa. The food was brilliant, there was a wide range of food at breakfast and the food in the restaurant was also very good.
The hotel itself is right in the middle of the old city with inexpensive restaurants and bars near by. The is also a number of temples within walking distance.
Our stay was fantastic we just wish we had booked in to the hotel for a few more nights. We would recommend this hotel to everyone. We will be booking again soon.
