Tamarind Guest House

Arguably the best in town

What we say: 4.5 stars

Tucked at the end of a quiet driveway directly across from Wat Mahathat, Tamarind offers six comfy and tasteful rooms in a restored Thai wood house. With polished hardwood floors and wood panel walls painted mint green and white, both fan and air-con standard rooms offer exceptional value. Rooms are moderately sized and spotless, and each are equipped with comfortable beds, flatscreen TVs and large windows. The air-con room we saw has a lovely partial open-air rain shower while the fan room has a large and bright bathroom with pleasant yellow trim. One family room is also available -- it was occupied when we visited but a family of five staying there had great things to say about it, specifically mentioning the fine service they had received from the good-natured young woman who runs the guesthouse. We concur -- she seemed happy to go the extra mile to make guests feel at home, and mentioned that guests are welcome to shower at the guesthouse even hours after checking out. WiFi Is free throughout and a second floor common area between the rooms has a communal fridge and complimentary coffee and tea facilities, where guests are also treated daily to free fruit and cookies that can be enjoyed on a large shared terrace with tables and chairs. A stone's throw from the most visited ruins and around the corner from the night market, Tamarind's location is also a selling point for those wanting to avoid the backpacker area.
