Staff performance may have declined slightly since the owners opened the cheaper Good Morning by Tamarind further down Naresuan Road, but the original still has plenty going for it.

With polished hardwood floors and wooden walls painted mint green and white, rooms boast a classy style that betrays the affordable rates. Medium-firm beds are draped in silk, desks are adorned with intricate woodcarvings and partitioned showers come with rain shower heads in addition the usual moveable shower heads. Each room is a little different from the next, with some bagging you attached balconies and others opening onto a wide shared terrace that had been expanded since our last visit. WiFi is free and TVs are absent. Guests share a single communal fridge and can help themselves to complimentary coffee, tea, fruit and cookies. Tamarind's location is also a selling point. The side-lane setting means peace and quiet at all hours. The staff member who we most recently encountered was more business-like than the sweet pair of women whom we met the first time, but she wasn’t rude. We got the impression that staffers rotate between here and the larger Good Morning, located a five-minute walk down Naresuan Road.

We noticed that rates listed on booking sites were slightly higher than the walk-in rates. If Tamarind is full but you really like the location, the neighbouring Sixty Guesthouse is another boutique-y spot with similar rates.
