Very friendly Italian owner. Good vibes and strong aircon. Would definitely stay again. Walkable to the main drag for food etc. No real complaints except the outdoor sitting area could have been swept off a bit more.

We stayed 5 days in Riverside and liked it very much. The place consist of some old and renovated teak houses partly with riverview and balcony, and a nice garden. Because wooden houses a a little clairaudient you have to be respectful for other people. The guest house is located on a quiet side road but not far from the... More

A very good traditional Northern Thai property in an equally good location.Stayed in Colonial Suite room. We reached there prior to Thai New Year festival, were staying for 2 nights and leaving on 12th Apr for Sukothai. As bus companies were not accepting advance booking at Lampang bus station (buses were coming from Chiang Mai and Lampang is a transit... More

I stay here whenever I'm in Lampang city. I've stayed in the colonial suite, room 9, 15 (double bed, private bathroom), and room 12 (triple room, shared bathroom), and room 5 (double/triple, private bathroom). I've had good experiences with all of these rooms, although other than the colonial suite they all have fans only and no a/c, which is absolutely... More

I stayed here for one night on business recently. The guesthouse is quiet, the location is good, right on the river(not much of a river so don't be disappointed) and the buildings are all timber. Good restaurant overlooking the river, felt just like a guest house should, like you were staying with relatives. Good ac, quaint effective bathroom, grounds are... More

And roomwas wooden with small balcony area ... perfect for relaxing. Riverfront restauarant is beautiful with also nice couches etc. There are some awesome Harley Davidson bikes and a Leeds... More

I meant to give this 3.5/5 stars, but was unable. The chick who operates the guesthouse is friendly, and helpful. I thought the American breakfast for 170B was a bit pricey, considering most places in the region include a free breakfast, or at least free coffee. Sitting by the river was serene at night, but I didn't like the barking... More

We adored our room at the Riverside Guest house, and our only regret is that we planned only two days in Lampang. The town is wonderful and off the tourism map, with much to see and do, and is particularly charming in its old teak vernacular architecture, abundance of lush gardens and famous horse carts. The Riverside reflects the charms... More

This is a great guest house, very relaxing location and attentive staff. Our room looked over the river with a lovely veranda. The bed was the best, sheet were crisp and clean with that lovely felling I can't get at home. The bed was big enough for 2 adults to sleep comfortably. The shower had good pressure and plenty of...

Great place to stay. Comfortable bed, clean and cozy rooms with nice decor. Very nice garden and seating outside along the river. Friendly staff and their banana jam is to die for. Will definitely stay here again. Only con is the barking dogs that neighbor the guesthouse which woke me up both nights. The night market is also close by... More
