The Tamarind Village is an outstanding place to stay for a day, a week or a month. On site restaurant serving outstanding meals, large pool and just about anything else a quest might want or need for a grand stay in Chiang Mai. I'll be staying there again next year when I do another motorcycle tour of Thailand. It is the perfect place to unwind and shed your jetlag blues before continuing on your journey of this wonderful place they call Thailand.

This older boutique hotel has potential to be an urban oasis. Although located in a bustling part of the old city it is quiet -- although some of the guests on the grounds can be noisy. About 60 percent of the hotel's guests are now mainland Chinese who can be a bit loud and like to smoke. The hotel offers a free buffet breakfast but get there early as certain items seem to run out.

The rooms are tastefully decorated. The one we stayed in had no real doors separating the room from the bathroom. Fine if you're a solo traveler but a couple or family may not like that arrangement.

I had one issue booking through the front desk a taxi for a day tour. We were assured that the rate to visit a couple of tourist attractions outside the city would total B1500 for up to eight hours. But the driver refused to take us to a nearby third location in the fifth hour saying that would cost B800 additional. I refused to pay extra and we returned to the hotel. I explained to the front desk what happened and they were polite and apologized for the confusion. But they need to do a better job of booking taxis and explaining the terms and conditions to the guests.

Dear 7J1AIL,

Thank you for your kind feedback on your recent stay with us Trip Advisor. We do pride ourselves on offering guests an oasis of calm at the heart of the old town of Chiang Mai and are sorry to know you were disturbed by the noise of other guests during your stay.

We are also sorry that there was confusion with your taxi driver. We did our best to assist with booking this service for you and to communicate your requirements to the driver. Unfortunately we cannot always control the behavior of outside operators and non-hotel services. Your comments are well noted nevertheless and we thank you for them.

We hope to have the chance to welcome you back again one day in the future.

Wishing you all the best.

Kind regards,

Claudine

Excellent service, beautiful rooms, very clean, neat, and creative. There is also a very cozy restaurant with a pool view and live music. The food is superb and service phenomenal. This hotel is also in a perfect location (50 baht) cab ride from the night bazaar markets. You also have a spa offering a variety of Thai massages 60-90 minutes. I refuse to stay anywhere else in Chiang Mai!

Aiming to travel on a reasonable budget, we opted for the entry level room. Comparisons against other hotels did highlight the limits of the room’s scale, but definitely still on the charming side of small, utterly comfortable and with touches like lemon grass incense imbuing a sanctuary like ambience. Inventory wise, the room offers all the usual features: storage, TV, safety deposit box, toiletries, local guide books. All clean and well maintained. I found myself sleeping soundly each night on a respectable double bed, thoroughly rested come morning.

Breakfast, although not gastronomically ground breaking, set a high standard, to which we found subsequent hotels struggling to match. Its a buffet breakfast with a mix of cooked Thai food, fruits, smoked meats and omelets. There’s a choice of teas for the cha drinkers and plenty of fresh fruit juices, and as is custom, polite and friendly service throughout.

The location is in the heart of the old town, a few minutes pilgrimage away from local shrines and other tourist attractions. As a photographer, I could easily visit the shrines in the evening with the benefits of interesting lighting and fewer tourists. Just across the road are surprisingly good tourist friendly restaurants and transport to other areas is easily hailed and fairly priced.

Beautifully formed, full of character and thoughtful touches, I can still vividly remember my experience at the Tamarind Village. Given a chance, I would go back tomorrow, Chiang mai is definitely one of the highlights of my Thailand trip and the Tamarind Village accommodated my stay there brilliantly.
