We decided to go spend a night up in the Akha Hill House. The free pick up and drop off are great. Once up there we discovered that accommodation is very very basic for the cheapest rooms (4 walls but open to the roof) and just ok for the "upgraded ones". Food is just ok, but nothing special. We barely... More

we booked a package which included transfers, accommodation, meals and trekking. It took me 1 month to secure a booking due to poor communication. After reading the reviews I was quite hesitant but booked anyway. The rooms are basic which is fine, but need maintenance. The bathroom was not cleaned properly and there where some creepy crawlies. The mattress was... More

Our trek included one night in the Akha Hill House and so this review is 2 parts Firstly, the trek itself was fantastic. Literally one of the highlights of my SE Asia trip. So if you're going to trek in Thailand, that would be my suggestion do it through them. The accommodation in Akha Hill on the first night was... More

In my opinion is not a place for enjoy the nature at all,the worst thing is they have elephants ride treckings. Of course is not for a real animal and nature lover.A wild animal has to be in the wild! We have to stop this trates and animal abuses and not participate if not you are same responsible for the...

the staff were not very friendly, dogs were scared of the staff and hiding under customers chairs, our luggage didnt turn up until 8pm leaving us cold and wet from our trek in the rain. The rooms and facilities were tired, it seemed as though no maintenance work is carried out and the staff arent interested in making it a... More

The individuals that we booked with were great and friendly. The village itself is beautiful. The first night we spent in the bungalow we saw two huge spiders in the restroom and two cockroaches in the room. It is nice they give you a mosquito net to sleep in, but we still were shocked at the size of the spider... More

It is in the small Akha Village (about 30 - 40 familys) at the N-W direction of Chiang Rai. The Guest House provides free transportation to and from the Guest house. The journey takes 1 hour. The price for staying in the single room (shared bathroom) is only about US 4. It is incretible money-worth. The room is very basic... More

The rooms are a bit basic with poor beds and little to keep you warm in the very cold low season. I had to get up to put several more layers of clothing on. Apparently it had been even colder at other times (this was about Christmas). But the views are spectacular and it soon warms up in the morning.... More
