“Fantastic rooms, excellent service in a great area”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Our room at green tulip was fantastic - large bed, excellent air con, very clean bathroom with massive walk in hot shower, fresh towels and a safe. The room was decorated beautifully, as is the whole guesthouse, in fresh bright colours.

Nai, the owner, and all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and seem to to be able to book you in to any activity in the area (many at a discount).

There is a spacious roof terrace and a lovely seating area downstairs with free WiFi. There was a free breakfast available (tea, juice, toast) and eggs and bacon at an extra price.

The hostel is in walking distance of all the main sites of central Chiang mai. I recommend staying on a Sunday as the unmissable Sunday Market starts just at the end of the street.

Green tulip was a 2012 Trip Advisor winner and at this rate is sure to win again in 2013.

Our double room with private bath was spotless and spacious. Comfy bed and clean sheets and towels. Great WIFI signal too.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, but sometimes a bit pushy with tours, etc. You couldn't enter the restaurant area without them trying to sell you a tour or asking what your plans were. I found it a bit much. But they were so nice, it wouldn't stop me going back.
The location is also a bit of a walk from the river but close enough to the night market, which is awesome.
Overall a good option in Chiang Mai.

What an amazing few days we had here ! We chose The Green Tulip as it had been recommended by a friend and it was even better than expected !!

First of all Stella the cook made us one of the family, an amazing, happy, bubbly women who made us feel so welcome when we were home sick ! She is the best cool in Thailand and cannot so enough to make you happy !

Nine was just as welcoming and helpful she booked all our excursions and transport without hesitation and even booked us taxis when we mentioned going for an exploration!

The whole place was clean, food was great, free wifi and very cheap !

We became very attached to the staff here and didn't want to leave, I will return to Chiang Mai just to see them again !

There are endless amounts of activities to do which are all booked at reception.

You must stay here it will make your time in Thailand unforgettable !

THANK YOU GREEN TULIP

I stayed at Green Tulip House for 3 night recently and everything was bang on. The staff especially were great, with Niene (number nine) and Stella were both super helpful even though they are very busy ladies. They were very helpful in choosing from the myriad of Elephant tours, sorted out buses for us, and were always keen to answer even the smallest questions.

The room itself was great. We stayed in a private (double) room and it was a very good size, and nice large shower. Everything was very clean and well maintained. There was no safe, but lock up drawers in the cupboard were available. Nice and new aircon units in the room and a decent bed.

The only real drawback was that it was a little far from the things we kept having to walk to e.g. the sunday walking markets. However even in the heat the walk was manageable.

Overall I think the Green Tulip is a great place to stay, made especially comfortable by the always helpful staff. They even posted something to us that we accidentally left in the room!

Green Tulip was, by far, the best hostel I've been to in Asia. The staff were so amazing, they would do anything to help you. Great place to meet people. Great location. Extremely clean. A really fun place. Price is excellent. I had the best time there. I'm leaving today and I'll miss you guys a lot, would definitely return to this place. Thank you all for the great time, you were amazing.
I just read a review that said location was not good. Well, it took me 5 or 8 minutes to walk from there to the night bazar. And, also, saying that staff were not helpfull, well, I think these peolple have been to a different hostel 'cause the staff at Green Tulip was the best I've seen so far.

We enjoyed staying at the Green Tulip so much the first time in Chiang Mai that we returned here after a short trekking trip away. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, they could not do enough to ensure we had a great stay. The manageress supported us in organizing trips, transport (both locally and flights/trains further a field) with very competitive prices and patient! Stella was the heart and soul of the Green Tulip always ready with a kind smile and enthusiasm for her work. Awesome place to stay and we will return!

Room Tip: Thai massage is available on site, definitely worth 180B. Do it!

Although we arrived quite early in the morning, the staff tried to get us into the room as quickly as possible which was nice. The room was clean, and each bed had it's own locker underneath. Good bathroom for 6 people, there was even 2 toilets. We didn't have very long in Chiang Mai so we wanted to get the most out of our few days- very friendly staff helped us to do this by writing out a schedule for our few days, with what we wanted to do and the tours we might like to go on. Stella was a wonderful host and so very accommodating.
The only downside for us was returning home at night, you had to ring the doorbell and wait for someone to wake up and come and let you in. Several times the staff seemed a little annoyed that we had bothered them, even though we had no other way into the hostel and it wasn't even that late.. other than that, great stay!
The vegetarian restaurant next door was delicious :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the 6 bed female dorm- great choice
