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

The Galare guest house is perfect for people who want to be close to the main attractions whilst also wanting a relaxing and quiet stay, the breakfast is a reasonable price and all the staff are very friendly. The only thing was the shower took a while to get warm and the shower head wasn't too great but that didn't...

We had a nice experience at the guest house. The room was dated and the bathroom could have been cleaner, however our overall experience was fine. A couple downsides: the wifi was unreliable and was down for a large part of our stay. Additionally, very few of the taxi or Tuk Tuk driver knew where it was making it a...

Galare is a wonderful place to stay in Chiangmai. It is within an easy walk of the municipal markets, the night bazaar and the Muslim quarter. At the same time, Galare is quiet and serene, with gardens and a restaurant on the bank of the River Ping. The Chiangmai natives who own and operate Galare truly preserve the northern Thai...

This delightful little guesthouse sits on the banks of the Ping River... It's secluded yet still convenient position makes it an ideal choice for anyone visiting Chiang Mai. Our room off an upstairs balcony gave us uninterrupted views over a tropical garden and out over the river... Cane armchairs outside of our room meant we could relax and have a...
