“Perfectly lovely”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I spent 2 nights in Tanita house and it was just a bless, a relaxing perfect stay.
Aor is so lovely smiling welcoming, how cant we feel otherwise that good.
This little original paradise behind a fence is a beautiful place to relax in Chiang Mai. Everything is authentic, tek houses, tek furnitures, clean big room, bathroom, couldnt ask for more.
Thank you Aor for this beautiful lovely stay.

I can only repeat what has been written below. The teak houses and peaceful garden make Tanita House unique but what makes it extra special is the kindness of the owner, Aor, and her staff who could not do enough to help. For example,Aor even drove us to our next B&B rather than let us take a taxi. If we ever return to Chiang Mai this would definitely be our first choice.

We stayed here for 3 nights and wished that we could have taken it with us! Everything about Tanita House is perfect. The location is great, 10 minutes away from the airport, on the quieter side of town, but a short walking distance to the hustle and bustle of the town and by the river where all the up and coming bars and restaurants are. Aor and her staff are absolutely lovely. Nothing is too much for them and they are all so friendly. (Aor got up at 5.30am to make sure that the taxi picked us up as we departed.) Breakfast was tasty and cooked on demand. There was unlimited tea and ground coffee, available all day long.

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed in.

Everything about Tanita house is tasteful, quiet, and charming. But the great location, which is an oasis in the midst of the day to day busyness of Chiang Mai, is not the best reason to stay here.

The owner/hostess is Aor (pronounced Aw), and she is attentive without being intrusive, helpful in the extreme, and a fountain of information should you need anything.

The morning breakfast is served fresh, when you get up, and she even has a fresh brewing coffee machine with everything from hot water (to dilute it if you find Thai coffee too strong) to cold milk and even soy milk.

You will not do better in price, location, nor in a hostess who turns into your friend by the time you must bid her goodbye.

We hate high rise hotels and love B&B's - and having traveled the world but we have found none better than Tanita House.

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids 12-16 years) stayed at Tanita a couple of weeks ago -- first 2 nights, then an amazing trek with Chiangmai-trekking for 2 nights, then back at Tanita for 3 nights. It was more than lovely -- it was a wonderful respite from the noise of the city. Our kids had the 2 room family room and we stayed next door in another small house. The site is beautiful. Lots of trees and plants, and the rooms are lovely as well. Aor, the hostess/owner, is so sweet and helpful. I could have stayed much longer. We went to a number of restaurants but Aor recommended Regina's just down the road, on the river. It was very affordable and very good. Highly recommended.

Beautyfully furnished, ultra clean teak houses.
Old little houses tastely renovated, really confortable beds, nice small balconies to sit in the shadow.
Calm atmosphere, very lovely staff.
10min walk from the night market, close to restaurants, nice art shop zone. 15-20min walk to old city. Nice furniture shop.

I highly reccomend this place. Thank you!

We stayed for two nights and wished it could have been longer. It is in a lovely location at the river side, close to some lovely bars, shops and restaurants. Very peaceful and quiet, the bungalows were lovely, clean, peaceful and smelt of incense burning outside. The breakfast was good and you could help yourself to water and tea/coffee whenever you liked, our host was fantastic and very helpful. We would definitely stay again.
