Stayed 3 nights at The Galare Guest House during a business trip. The location is good for access to everything. The room was clean but in need of some updating. The restaurant served a nice breakfast but not unusual for CM. The price was a little high for this level of accommodation. I will look for a better value next...

Of the 5 hotels we stayed at on this trip the staff at Galare Guest House made us feel absolutely at home. They were so friendly, we joked & cut up with each other; They learned how to make our eggs perfect after the first day. The lady who worked the tours took a day off to drive us to...

This place was definitely one of the high points of our Thailand trip. Centrally located, amazing price and friendly staff who recommended a lot of activities including elephant park and cooking classes in Chiang Mai. Rooms are spacious, neat and clean. Food in the restaurant was so authentic. Words fall short of explaining how amazing this guest house has been....

Quiet and clean. Lovely location on a greenish river which still looks lovely with lights twinkling at night. The outdoor restaurant right next to the river is quite inviting, food ok, didn't really sample much. Breakfast not included, but for very reasonable price get to sit outside and feel comfortable and relaxed. There is a small fridge and water boiler,...

Galare Guest House is a fantastic place to stay! An oasis in Chiang Mai. I appreciate their free filtered water service that saves the plastic and provides safe drinking water to guests! I wish more places in Thailand had similar practices!

I stayed at the Galare for two nights before switching to a more traditional hotel. The location is fantastic, right on the Ping River and within walking distance to the night market. The hotel offers breakfast outdoors which was very good, but use bug spray or wear long pants to avoid bites. The rooms are basic but clean. No safe...

Enjoyed a lovely stay at Galare. Wonderful value for money and extremely helpful staff. The location was very close to the markets and a short walk to the old city. Would definitely recommend and will stay there again.

A nice quiet guest house in a secluded spot near the Ping River. Five minute walk to the Night Bazaar. Friendly staff with clean and comfortable rooms. A bargain price considering the location and facilities provided. I would thoroughly recommend as accomodation in Chiang Mai.

The front desk tries it best to help you even though they hardly speak English. But they make it up in effort! De beds are nice and soft, the towels are soft and the atmosphere is very good! Location just outside several bazaars. And nice good market
