I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our stay at Baanrimtaling.....really sweet staff, great and well priced rooms, an amazing view over the Mekong, and great food too. We were so thrilled when we came in on a late night bus and were met with such a lovely place and room, we almost wished we could have stayed longer but had a slow boat to catch.
Now, a word of caution about booking the slow boat trip through them. Were I to do it again I would definitely have done it on my own....not because it was overpriced, although it is cheaper to do on your own, but because it put our group in contact with some really scummy people, particularly one creep, who took us through the slow boat process (we were handed over to him at river crossing). He lied to us about many things just to make a buck, so we would exchange money and buy food before getting on the slow boat through his people. Also he used scare tactics telling us we wouldn't get a room for the overnight in Pakbeng if we didn't book now through him. DON'T BELIEVE THAT. We were there at the highest season and there were more than enough rooms at many places. Find one yourself. Also know that buying tickets at the guesthouse ahead does not ensure a reserved seat, although they tell you so. We arrived to find a few scattered and undesirable seats that we had to make work and it was very unpleasant. So just be aware of all this and enjoy the great guesthouse itself, but organize your own travel!
