“A cracking hotel.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

A top hotel in a great location. The staff were absolutely brilliant and could not have been more helpful, attentive and were unbelievably courteous. We booked the free hotel tuck tuck to visit the Golden palace which was delayed due to traffic. Realising this, the staff immediately brought this to our attention and paid for a taxi to get us to our destination as planned. It was my first visit to Bangkok and when visit again I will definitely stay at the Tara Place. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

If you want to stay among the happening place, then this one is for you. The most happening khao san road is 5 min walking distance from this hotel. You can just walk back to hotel, even if you are drunk.
Rooms were clean and basic. Staff was very cordial. Generally, not many ppl know english in thailand but staff at the hotel was very helpful. You will have to check-out on time but if you plan to roam around the area, there is a luggage room where you can keep your stuff (offcourse nothing precious). They will give you a map explaining the area surronding and it was indeed helpful. The river cruise pier is also walking distance from hotel.

Also there is a free tuk-tuk service to grand palace from hotel in the morning. And there is no swimming pool.

We took bus 511 from ekkamai to reach this place. The bus doesnt go directly on the samsen road, where the hotel is located. But it will drop you somewhere at the junction and then you will need to walk some 10 min. We had no problem finding the hotel as we had directions and address in thai with us and lots of ppl to ask for direction on road.
If you are taking taxi, then it can drop right in front of the hotel. The road is quite busy. Lots of taxi;s and buses go right in front of the road.
If you are coming from South bus terminal (sai mai tailing chan) to this hotel, then you can take 516 bus which will drop you right in front of the hotel.

There are many many eating options near tara place. You will not runout of eating options.

We are pleased to service you.
Actually, there are many buses right at the front of the hotel depart for more interesting places, such as Chatujak Market, China Town and Hua Lam Phong station (Main train station).
Just ask the direction at the front desk......

Great hotel in a great location. The room was a good size and clean with a very modern, spacious bathroom.the complimentary water and very cheap beer in the mini bar were both very welcome! The free tuk tuk to the grand palace is a great idea so you can save your strength for the hot walk around the palace grounds. Good location near khaosan road and the lively but calmer rambuttri. I would definitely recommend Tara place!

My and my husband arrived to Tara place in early morning around eight o'clock and after just an hour waiting the room was ready so we could have a rest after such a long journey without extra charges. The check in went quickly and staff at the main desk was very friendly and helpful. They speak very good english.There was a store room so we could leave our suitcases safely and go for a coffe while waiting for the room .The rooms are small but very comfortable and everything is brand new and very nice and clean.
The location is great close to the Khao San Road and all the tourist places.
There is a free tuk tuk service at the hotel to temples and Khao San Road and complimentary coffee and snacks in the lobby.We booked the room with breakfast so we had breakfast vouchers to the little resaurant just around the corner.
In general is a nice clean place with a smiling helpful staff and great location .
I would recommend and i would definitly go back again !!!

We spent one night here and booked 2 rooms. My son had stayed here previously and recommended the hotel for its location and good value. The rooms are well presented, very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. The complimentary refreshments and nibbles in reception were a bonus and the free tuk tuk to the Grand Palace much appreciated.A great little hotel, set back off the street, travel agency and massage facility next door. We were directed to an excellent riverside restaurant just around the corner by reception..

My friends and I took a taxi from the airport to here. Great place, and the price is pretty good for us, since we almost reached our budget.
Each room has only one free wifi account, which can be only used by two devices. So, if you have lots of gadgets, you'll have to pay more.

The hotel is brand new, the rooms are really clean and confortable. The hotel location is excellent, 2 blocks away from Khaosan Rd. but far from the noise and the caos. The hotel Staff is really kind and helpfull and they have a free tuk tuk service to the temples and Khaosan Rd.
The first floor rooms can get a bit noisy, but otherwise this hotel is a a great choice, I would definitely recomend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor are a bit noisy.
