We stayed one night Gin's Maekhong View and we are very positive with everything. The hotel is very central in Chiang Saen but still with a fantastic view over Mekong. The room was very nice, everything clean and a great view over the Swimmingpool and Mekong river. All the staff were very helpful, we had a good lunch first day... More

This place is off the charts in all they do in quality service and location. Located a little north of Chiang Saen (approx 1 mile), it's views are absolutely mind blowing! The staff is incredibly nice and helpful in all that we asked for. We were given a choice of rooms as we stayed in the Hut of Love. The... More

Lovely quiet hotel with a balcony overlooking a Hugh sun flower field with the Mekong River in the Background. The hotel is a little far (for walking) from the centre of town and it was slow to find a Tuk Tuk to down town area. Breakfast was just OK but very acceptable

Last time I was in Chiang Saen, I had stayed elsewhere but had called in to Gin's Maekhong View Resort just to see what it was like and was impressed. This time I stayed for three days at the end of January. I'd driven from Chiang Rai and arrived slightly early, around 1115hrs to be greeted warmly by the manager,... More

I thought it was a bit expensive, but the rooms in the new (big) building were very nice, spacious, clean and fresh, so we stayed 3 nights. Unfortunately the huts closest to the river were booked out, but my glimpse inside one suggested they are nicely furnished and maintained. The whole complex has good vistas of the river, which are...

I live 20 km from Chiang Saen which means I go there quite often. Have eaten at most of the restaurants along that stretch of the river and have found the Maekhong View to be one of the best but it is the most expensive [tourist prices] Has a very pleasant terrace which overlooks a well manicured garden with pool,...

Cannot share bad reviews. We liked this place a lot! Stayed two nights in a "love hut" by the river, with a large wooden terrace (with nice garden furniture) facing the mekong and a sunflower field. You can sit in the evening and watch the boat traffic on the mekong - very relaxing. Unfortunately no moskito net, but is necessary... More

This was the tiniest portion of spaghetti I ever had. The tomato sauce was actually quiet good, apparently home-made, with fresh tomatoes, garlic and onions. But how can a restaurant serve such a minuscule portion to a paying customer, I wonder? Did they run out of pasta? Speaking of which: It was badly overcooked. The straw which broke the camel's...

We stayed for one night in Jul 2013 in the Maekhong View Room (201). This air-conditioned double room was good value at the 1000B/night low season rate. The hotel is very new, spotlessly clean and a tasteful blend of whitewashed concrete and dark wood. It's right on the bank of the Mekong in the sleepy town of Chiang Saen, with... More
