This budget priced guesthouse is in a fabulous location - on the river and a short stroll to the night market. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are VERY friendly and extremely helpful. Having meals looking over the river is a peaceful and serene experience. My daughter and I had a room each and both of us had...

Excellent location albeit not the easiest place to find initially. Rooms are all you would expect from a budget hotel and a little bit more. Lovely location next to the river and convenient for local restaurants and the markets. No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We have stayed at the Galare several times in recent years and always enjoy it. The location is excellent - right on the river, but convenient to the night market, not far from the East Gate of the old city (about a 20 minute walk), and lots of good restaurants nearby. The rooms are simple but quite adequate, clean and...

The guest house looks better on photos than in reality. You however do have a nice view onto the river. The room was quit small, compared to other hotels and guest houses in the same price range. But it was clean and quiet. The bedding was a bit strange as it consisted of two separate sheets with the blanket in...

A garden next to the river and very near the nightmarked. Nice and clean rooms and helpful staff. A kitchen that offers very good meals, but breakfast not included in price. A good place to meet other travellers and a peaceful place near the bustle of the city. Have a beer and sit under the palm next to the river...

It was definitely worth staying at the Galare Guest House, All those good reviews about it were true indeed! The friendliness of the staff there is just great. The restaurant is okay and abit pricey but pretty much everything is pricey there in Chiang Mai. The view of teh Ping River is beautiful at night and the rooms are SPOTLESS!....

Nothing to complain about but I wouldn't book it again. I know now that there are decent hotels at a good price near Maya Shopping Mall in the area north of the airport and would rather invest money in taxis than staying at guest houses like Galare

We loved this place. It's close to the night market and several temples. The rooms were clean and the property had a great atmosphere. The staff is super friendly, and their restaurant has great food right on the river. Great prices too. Staff very trustworthy too: I left cash and my camera sitting on the bed and they came in...

Relaxed and family friendly hotel, good staff that care about clientele. Great central location so able to access Chiang Mai city and all its many market delights with easy walking distance access to some very very good restaurants without costly taxi travel. I will be back to again enjoy Chiang Mai from this great little hotel soon,
