“Lovely, peaceful guesthouse.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

This place ticks all the boxes for me - clean, safe, quiet, value for money, delicious breakfast and a great location close enough to the action in chiang Mai without being too close. Great restaurants nearby, and walking distance or short tuk tuk ride to the old city. The owner was very helpful, booking tours for us, offering advice, and she even offered to drive us to the airport when we left, even though we had to be there at 6am. My only issue was the bed, which was very hard, although I think this is normal in Thailand. After the first night I found blankets in the cupboard and placed them on the mattress to soften it, which helped. Overall a great experience and we would stay here again.

When we walked into Tanita House we found ourselves in a beautiful tranquil oasis. Incense were burning, everything was made from wood and greenery was in plenty. In addition Tanita is in brilliant location being withing walking distance or a short tuk tuk from markets etc. Not knowing what to expect after booking on the last minute, we were amazed a how lucky we were to have found Tanita. A substantial breakfast is served with an assortment of teas, coffee, yogurt and fruit. They truly cater for your every need, right down to burning incense outside your room to keep the mozzies away. Aor is an incredible hostess and helped us find a cooking course, trekking adventure and airport transfer at fantastic rates. There is not other choice for Chiang Mai when it comes to accommodation.

Room Tip: the beds were a little hard, but i'm just a picky sleeper.

We booked this place after reading the reviews from others here.

It was perfect. This is a family-run place on the edge of the city. It's very calm, the service is good, and Aor was just fantastic. Extremely kind, very helpful, ensured we had an absolutely terrific time.

The rooms are great, spacious and clean, food is ok, and is the perfect pad for doing your exploring/activities in the local area.

Make sure you book this place early though, you don't want to lose out.

Location for us was great, close to the river & just two minutes walk to the Riverside & Good View restaurants & bars which both had good food & live music.

I say an oasis because coming into the little compound that is Tanita from the heat & bustle of the city, you immediately feel cooler, the air quality improve & more relaxed ( thanks to the many trees & fragranced plants).

Aor who runs this place is it's major asset. Her English is good & she is helpful beyond which you would ever expect.

The wooden houses are simple but very clean & the aircon works well, though the bed was way too hard for me! access to drinks 24/7 in the breakfast area is a lovely touch. Breakfast is a help yourself affair with bacon & eggs cooked to order, sets you up nicely for the day & is of good quality.

We stayed for 7 days & could have happily have stayed for more as Chiang Mai has so much to offer.

Literally the only think I would change about this place would be to add a small swimming pool. Though when we wanted a chill day Aor was able to recommend a place an easy 10 minute walk away where for 100B per person you can use the pool & facilities for the day (Eco resort) they did poolside service food & drinks there & had an undercover ping pong table ( if you have laundry to do take that with you too as they have coin operated washing & drying machines so you can get it done whilst you lounge for the day!)
