Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 16, 2013

The place is beautiful, quiet, with a very comfortable bed. Loved the wooden rooms, such a nice smell inside. Breakfast in the morning was included, which was great.
The whole place is just so relaxing, it has been one of our best accommodations in Thailand.
The only negatives were somewhat cold shower, as in not hot, and slow internet. Otherwise awesome. Tanita was very helpful and accommodating. Thank you for everything!

Tanita House is set back from the road, a short tuk-tuk ride away from the centre of beautiful Chiang Mai.
We stayed in a traditional style, Teak Wooden hut, which was wonderfully hand-crafted and finished. All mod-cons were to be found inside (except a TV - which you wouldn't want to use anyway!).

Aor, the lady that runs Tanita House, is wonderful - she could never do enough for us. A real gem, and so friendly. Breakfasts has something for everyone, and although a limited menu (as you would except at a small place), more than made up for that in the quality of food.

The whole place is stunningly beautiful, service is first class. There is also a laundry just 2 doors away which is excellent. I couldn't recommend this place enough - we had an amazing stay, and it was so easy to get the most out of Chiang Mai whilst we stayed there.

We spent 4 nights in Tanita Guesthouse. I choose this place based on the reviews- and everybody was right when said that this place is great. We booked a wooden house, nice and clean (they clean every single day,make the bed,change towels), the breakfast is simple but you can eat as much as you want and there is water and tea-coffee provided all day. Aor,the owner is a beautiful person,always smiles,greats you in the morning,organizes you anything you need-taxi,tuktuk,excursion etc...She has a galery by the way with beautiful wooden things!! The guest house is just right next to the river, close to restaurants and bars, and just 15 minutes walking from the city centre. We loved to stay here, the whole staff is great and helpful!!!

We ended up staying here an extra night, so four nights total. We thought the home/setting were both lovely, the house sits far back off a fairly busy road, just over the bridge from the river and about a 20 minute walk into the old town. Aor, the owner, goes out of her way to be accommodating and helpful. She was always available when we needed a question answered. The breakfasts are plentiful, always bacon and eggs are offered in addition to yogurt, juice, granola, toast, fruit and coffee and tea. Each cottage is separate and are very clean and quiet. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All cottages appeared similar.

We just came from a 5 night stay at Tanita House. We couldn't have a chosen a better ghest house!
The rooms overlook a beautiful garden and the place is very quiet!
Aor, the owner helped us with everything we needed! When we checked out she even drove us herself since she couldn't find any taxi or tuk tuks at the time...
The rooms are very clean, air con was very good and breakfast delicious! The homemade cereal is amazing! We also could drink water, tea or coffee any time! The tea is of very good quality and with a wide selection of favours!
It's away from the crowds but still close by the night market and old city by tuk tuk.
Would defenitdly stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property!

What a lovely place. We loved our 2 night stay at Tanita House.
As others have said it is a little oasis of calm yet only a 10 minute walk to the night market and slightly longer to the old city.
Aor (the owner) is helpful and friendly and speaks very good english.
The bungalow was spacious and clean with a large comfortable bed. The bathroom was quite large and although perfectly clean would benefit from an update (but perfectly acceptable).
Wi fi was excellent.
The communal kitchen area was great. Coffee,tea and bottled water is available at any time.
Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast, jams and also a cooked breakfast of bacon and eggs if desired.
