My partner and I couldn't understand all the bad reviews for this place; we found it to be great in every aspect. The location was lovely- overlooking the Mekong- and the guesthouse itself was very clean and homely. We paid 200B for a double room with a shared bathroom; the bed was very comfortable with perfectly clean bedding and the... More

There are a number of positive aspects to this guest house, but they are sadly outweighed by the negatives. Great location overlooking the Mekong, hosts are very pleasant and the food is good, although I suffered from upset stomach a few hours after checking out. On the negative side - room was filthy, water didn't work properly, shower was disgusting,... More

This is a lovable but irregularly maintained guesthouse well located near main roads with a broad view of the Mekong. Service was friendly, although only the manager speaks much English, so you have to catch her to make payments or other arrangements. But you can order food any time without her help. We stayed in the 'fanciest' room, with a... More

good location overlooking the Mekong, however the room was very dirty, bedding questionable, had to turn on the water each time to get the toilet to flush and shower beyond description. Room was made of very ill fitting wood, light did not work ....I could go on, defiantly a place to be avoided, however breakfast and dinner was quite good.

We got a double room with own bathroom and riverview. The room was very big and clean and for 380 Bath we thought it was a very good deal. Two minor complaints: was no mosquitonet although there are quite a lot of mosquitos (we've seen that some rooms do have one) and there was a frog in the bahtroom. The... More

A quirky characterful teak residence with comfortable, albeit basic, rooms all with balconies overlooking the mekhong. The owners are wonderful, full of interesting information and advice. The restaurant food is great, the cold drink fridge a bonus. Sipping a cold beer on the balcony watching the river drift bye and contemplating the hills of Laos on the other side, (we... More

Nice location near to the border crossing, with views back across the River and a mix of rooms available. 4 bed dorm 130bh per person or a single room was 150bh. Doubles also available, some with a/c. The wifi was pretty good too.

We stayed here for two nights before the boat trip to Laos. It was very cheap and the food was good. We really didn't leave that much - there is not much going on in Chiang Khong. We spent a lot of time sitting on our balcony and in the eating area. It was VERY hot when we were there... More

This is a simple but beautiful teak home stay that has great views of the Mekong. The people who own it are lovely and really friendly, and you get to meet lots of other tourists from around the world. The rooms are pretty basic but otherwise it is a lovely place to stay while crossing the border from Thailand into... More
