we spent time with the Pongs over December and first have to say they are a wonderful couple with a cute little boy, able to give great advice about chiang mai. We felt that the accomodation was great value for money but the rooms could do with some upgrades, particularly the bathrooms. A good shower would add to the experience... More

Our recent stay as guests of Mr Pong was amazing. CM River House is a large colonial-style bungalow with generous wood work, on the eastern bank of River Pong. The location is so serene, away from hustle bustle of the town, yet almost central - a 10 min Tuk-tuk drive gets you to the walled city. It has all the... More

Am staying there right now. This is the perfect place to stay in Chiang Mai if you want authentic Thai. Yes, it is out of the action of downtown, but like jpatch, Pong took me into town the first day to rent a scooter (200B/day). I'm 64 and my wife is 60 and we are having fun having the freedom...

We all liked the house just out of the centre of Chiang Mai. Its beautiful and the owner Pom and his wife are friendly and helpfull. Remember to take the telephonenumber of the house with you if you're going out because the taxi chauffeurs say they know where it is but then they take you somewhere else. The breakfast was... More

The guest house owners picked us up from the airport and were so helpful in giving us suggestions of what to do and see in the city. They even took us into town our first day there so we could rent a motorbike. Breakfast was simple and included local fruits. Rooms were modest but clean, with cable, wi-fi, and a/c... More

My partner and I really enjoyed staying in this charming, colonial style guest house. The big house is lovely and as it only boasts four rooms, it is quiet and there is a lot of space - there two very large balconies to relax on and two lounge areas. The owners (a couple) were extremely helpful and hospitable, they could... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Chiang Mai River House. We received a warm welcome when we were picked up from our previous hotel and instantly fell in love with the spacious and cool house on the river. The premises are kept meticulously clean and Amarin who runs the B&B has thought about all of the little touches that... More

On our 3-week Thai country tour we have stopped in Chiang Mai in January 2011 for 4 days. The "Chiang Mai River House" served us as lodging in Chiang Mai. The house at the ping river has only 6 guest rooms and is led by a charming young couple and the lady of the house does everything, that the guest... More

I stayed there for 5 nights. That's the most perfect guesthouse in my mind. Host lives with us, There are not many rooms so Amarin can talk and discuss with us about eveything. Amarin always apears in the right place and right time. She always knows what's happened when you walked to her. Different breakfast everyday! Alwayse clean! After you... More

If you are in Chiang Mai you must consider staying here. The proprietor was gracious and totally accomodating, while respecting your privacy. The rooms are spacious, the balconies and porches comfortable, and the whole house had an old world charm that I didn't experience elsewhere during our Thailand adventure. Each morning a nice breakfast was served at the time of... More
