Stayed here in January for 4 nights. It is on the river down a lane way, so it is out of the hustle and bustle, but only a 10 minute walk to Thapae Gate. Loved staying here, the room is large and there are lovely gardens to sit in, either on the river or outside the rooms. There are also... More

Yes, it's on a murky looking river. Yes, it's got squadrons of mosquitoes. And you're looking across at a very busy road , noisy and with lots of garish neon signs. There are no 'floating' staff. If you want a drink you must go and find 'the lady'. Why bother giving you a kettle with no coffee or tea sachets?... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The Hotel is situated on the River and is a 2 Minute walk from the Night Bazaar market and the rest of the the City Centre but it is tucked away and very quiet all the time. It has its own restaurant which we didn't end up eating at and a lovely garden. You... More

Clean, helpful staff, fair prices for food and drinks, great location, quiet and relaxing. Didn't really like room furnishing (a bit old). Hard beds but managed to sleep. Take insect repellant with you if you go to chiang mai.

Yet another mixed review. While the staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were not great. Our first room stunk of objectionable patchouli perfume. It was so intense that we had to move rooms; luckily they had one available. Other smaller issues like spongy uncomfortable bed, kettle and mugs but no coffee or tea, the hot water ran out... More

We stayed for one night. Great location - close to restaurants and night market, and just a 10-minute drive to the airport in the morning. The room we got was large, located on the ground floor facing a small pretty garden to have coffee in. All very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was a tad small but the strong water pressure... More

Quiet by the river and yet walking distance to night market. After a day's walk it is always nice to be back to Galare as it feels like home. The common verandah is a great place to read, drink and even chat with fellow travellers. A place value for $. Room is clean, shower is good too. Internet speed is... More

We stayed at Galare Guesthouse for 5 nights and we loved it there! It is quiet, away from the noise of traffic, and right on the river. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good AC, hot water and good WiFi. The restaurant on the river is excellent with very reasonable prices. Most of all, the staff is so kind... More
