I spent 5 very comfortable nights here. Basic facilities, yet some of the best 'home-cooked' meals I had in Thailand in the river garden restaurant. Spacious room with sat TV and wifi. The guesthouse accommodated an eclectic mix of travellers, from backpackers to retirees. Excellent location on the river - on one side, the night markets, the other side-the Warorot... More

This well established place was lovely. Great cafe overlooking the river, such helpful staff. Their tour guides brilliant. Safe deposit and computer at reception.Lovely garden to relax in. Room are small but big enough too.Try a boat cruise for a couple of hours, you get picked up at the hotel, on the river!

Great guest house next to Ping River walking distance to the night market and center of town. No pool. Spotlessly clean, breakfast lunch and dinner service in covered open air setting. Great for budget travelers. Wonderful helpful staff.

Unfortunately the advertising belies reality.We found the room overpriced & not clean...dirty floors/ pillows smelt / bed linen stained. All the staff seemed to be asleep or close to it. Have never done a bad review before but "Galare"just failed on all fronts.

Situated right next to the river, away from the bustle of downtown, it's a lovely little guest house. Friendly staff, good clean rooms, wifi and average breakfast. A short walk across the bridge to the riverside bars, or 5-10 minutes to the inner walls. Absolutely no complaints.

Lovely, cold, efficient air conditioning was so welcome after returning from outings each day. All the decor is rather dated but this part of the charm of Galare. Room was clean, big and comfortable. Free water provided and available as well from a chilled water filter on the verandah which was great to see. Wifi was a bit slow at... More

Marvelous popular budget accommodation with very friendly honest easy going and hard working staff.(a few baht is considerate for them) It is a very short walk from Galare to some of the best food and Jazz in the old city if you like to stroll and take in the sights or cheap as chips if the Galare calls a tuktuk....

Best masaman curry ever in the guest house restaurant. Rooms are clean. Generally quiet. Helpful staff. Free cold water. Close to Night Market. Nice walk to downtown. Massage shop right down end of street. Nice lady does laundry across the soi from guest house.

Nice hotel situated in a quiet area on the riverbank with friendly knowledgeable staff. Rooms were large and comfortable and spread over two floors with balconies (no lifts). There is a nice garden area to sit or lounge and another on the riverbank. The restaurant overlooks the river, it has a limited menu but the food was very good and... More

This hotel feels like home. The staff was super helpful and friendly and all spoke very good English. The rooms have that homey feel to them and while the facility is older, it's very clean. The beds are a little stiff but that's the only negative I can think of (and I don't mind stiff beds anyway). The rooms have... More
