Arrived here with a package tour to the brder and slow boat. First we got a room with two single beds, but we chose to get an upgrade for 200 bat to have a big bed and a private bathroom. The shared bathroom rooms are a bit noisy, i suspect, but it looked clean. Our private room was fine, clean,... More

Rooms are nice, although many walls are bare cement. The bathroom is outside the room in a screened in section. The hot air from the air conditioner makes going to the bathroom feel like you are walking into an oven with occasional water dripping on you, we ate there and service was slow some in my group did take away...

We stayed here as part of a G adventures tour for 1 night before crossing the border to Laos. The room was boiling hot when we checked in and we couldn't get the air con to work. On investigation it turned out the batteries in the remote control were finished. We replaced them with some spares we had but why... More

There seems to be some confusion with this page - the guesthouse pictured is not the Nam Khong Guest House in Chiang Mai. That branch was quite nice; the staff were quite friendly (especially the head lady, 'Annabelle'). The rooms are fairly clean, the noise isn't bad, and there is a nice lobby for reading/relaxing/meeting other travelers. As with most... More

This quite possibly be the worst service iv ever seen in Thailand and that's after many years traveling in this part of the world. Movie night- no - staff watching Thai soapy, dinner discussing, 50thr to use pool, 20thr to use a towel + 100thr deposit, they advertise as river side - no - other side of town. Just don't... More

We stayed here as part of the Laos slow-boat package. What a joke! Everything, including towels, the swimming pool, cushions were all chargeable! What really took the biscuit was in the public restaurant and bar area, where you're allowed to watch films on the TV, was when two of the staff came in and turned the film off that everyone...

Nam Kong is a great place to stay. It's not luxurious but it's the best value in Thailand. For the cost of 200 baht we received two double beds, a fan and a private washroom. The location is close to everything although sometimes it can be loud with the neighboring hotel having parties. The best thing about the guesthouse is... More

First, I would like to clarify that I am writing a review about Nam Khong Gueshouse in Chiang Mai on Tapae Soi 3. It seems some of the reviews may be for a different guesthouse elsewhere. My room had bedbugs. Do not stay here!!! Upon discovering the bedbugs in the morning, I immediately went down to the reception with three... More

I've stayed one night in this hotel on our transit to Laos and it was maybe one of the most beautiful and best value hotels on our whole 2 month southeastasia trip. It's just an oasis of peace and calm in a very shady, ugly, dirty town. It has a beautiful pool and very clean facilities. All the cabins are... More

Our stay here was booked as part of a "slow boat" package (a mistake in itself), from the Green Tulip House in Chiang Mai (final destination: Luang Prabang). We thought this guest house sucked for the following reasons: - Towels are not included in the cost of the room (20 Baht extra, plus a 100 Baht deposit) - We were... More
