Hidden Treasure

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 6, 2006

We enjoyed everything about our stay here. It is a small boutique hotel with approximately 40 rooms in the centre of old Chaing Mai. It is quiet,peaceful and very clean. The staff a extremely friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. They serve a great buffet breakfast each morning.

Unique Quality: The Hotel is in the style of Traditional Thai houses.
This hotel was beautiful. It is like a little oasis in the heart of a bustling city! It is very central, 5mins walk from tae pae gate and 10mins from wat chedi luang and wat prah singh (2 sites you must see!). The hotel rooms are very clean and spacious, the staff were always polite and helpful and their was always a good selection of european and thai favourites for breakfast. We would definately recommend this hotel!

Directions: Centre of Old Chaing Mai

An oasis within a city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 7, 2005

Unique Quality: The hotel is a comfortable place to stay, with only about 40 rooms. All rooms are renovated within colonial styled 2-storey buildings, with a lot of lush greenery surrounding the buildings. They also have pretty good security control at night.

Directions: It's located within the old part of Chiang Mai town.

In the old city

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 26, 2005

I have stayed at this boutique hotel three times over two years. It's a little garden oasis in the city. The location is great. Not many nicer hotels in the old city-which is surrounded by beautiful wats (temples). If you don't stay in this area, your other main choice is in the tourist ghetto by the Ping river with all the package tourists.

From the hotel you can walk easily to some of the best wats, restaurants and shops. Tuk-tuks and songtaews are always hanging out by the two entrances-so it's easy to get around.

The rooms are nice, but rustic. Concrete floors, hard beds, but all the rooms have stylish black and white photos and beautiful pots of orchids. If you can spend a little bit more money, i recommend the deluxe rooms which have a nice little balcony with sitting area. I have stayed on the first and second floors. The steps to the second floor are uneven and steep, but the rooms seem to have less mosquitos. If you have a problem with the mozzies then ask the staff and they will put mosquito repellent incense coils in your room. The staff are friendly and will help you with any of your travel plans. When booking your reservation don't do it through their website. I saved 30% off the room rates by booking it through another site.

The breakfast was average, but has a wonderful selection of fruit juices. The pool is okay and clean, but can get crowded in the afternoon.
If you are in chiang mai on a sunday afternoon-they have a great sunday market which starts outside of one of the hotel's entrances and spreads to outside the city walls. Really nice. Better and more low key than the night market. Don't worry about the market's noise, since the rooms are located off the street by the hotel's inner courtyard. Very quiet.

Directions: inside old city walls, adjacent to Wat Umong

Peaceful Retreat in the Heart of the Old City

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 14, 2004

Tamarind Village is a peaceful boutique hotel located in the center of Chiang Mai's old city. The location is not only great for touring the various Wat's and historic sites in the old city, but it is also much quieter than the noisy tourist district near the river. The rooms are comfortable, although somewhat simple. Mosquitos were a problem in our room, but the staff will spray if you ask them. The staff is also quite helpful in assisting you to book any tours and/or transportation that you may need. It is definitely pricey, but you can usually get good discount rates if you look around.

Unique Quality: A descent breakfast buffet is provided. The pool is simply lovely, especially after a hot day of sightseeing. The inner courtyard of the hotel has many beautiful trees and flowers. The hotel has only 40 rooms, so it's never terribly crowded. Overall a lovely place with a great location.

Directions: inside old city walls, adjacent to Wat Umong

The best hotel in town with a swimming pool

by written on July 2, 2004

This is the luxurious hotel I occasionally find by walking around the temple area. It definitely looks like a luxurious hotel and it even has a swimming pool. As I am on the budget and independent travel, there is no possibility and meaning to stay here.

But the surrounding atmosphere tells a very good place to stay, especially for honeymoon.

Unique Quality: A great view and the swimming pool

The most charming hotel in Chiang Maï

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 30, 2004

The small hotel Tamarind Village deserves no star... because you really cannot classify it.
It is unique by its charm. It used to be a monastery.
Located in the old city of Chiang Maï, you wont find it unless you have been told...
A small door leads to this protected heaven...
If you arrive at night, you will immediately fall in love and the rooms are designed with style. A great experience !

Unique Quality: Pool is great but not very big. The restaurant is charming and the breakfast changes every day with fresh products from the market.
On sundays, Rajdamnoen road is packed with a charming local market..
Rooms are nice...
You have small patios inside the hotel... great...

Directions: Rajdamnoen Roas is famous in the old city. Start from Tha Phae Gate and walk 10 minutes to reach it.

Tamarind Village

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 1, 2003

I wanted to stay in the old town area and was attracted by a picture of this Hotel. It's kind of upperscale but since I only stayed here for one night, I thought it may be tolerable.

This place is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are nicely decorated and the court yards are nicely maintained. I did not have time to use their pool but the pool sure was inviting.

The western style breakfast was OK. Though I would prefer local style better.

I am sure I will stay here again the next time I visit Chiang Mai

You probably can find a MUCH better rate from those Chiang Mai hotel websites than from Tamarind Village's own website.

Unique Quality: It's simply a very beautiful place in a very good location.

Directions: 50/1 Rajdamnoen Road, Sri Phom, Muang, Chiangmai 50200
