Hi Jbabe57, Thank you very much for a lovely review. We're happy you enjoyed our unconventional approach to running a hotel. It seems to work for most people, as long as they are not looking for a 5 star hotel. We'd love to see you back here again and you can explore some more of this wonderful area. Happy New...

I highly recommend a stay at Viang Yonok. We stayed for 3 nights in November and had a lovely time. From Vassana (known as Jim) picking us up from the next town when we missed getting off at Chiang Saen (communication problem with the driver), to Ian taking us into town and giving us a tour before dropping us off...

Everything about this place is outstanding, especially the owners and workers. Everybody bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable. The accommodations are comfortable and aesthetically lovely. The food is great and made to order with our strange requests (vegetarian, diabetic). We left something's behind in our room and Ian went out of his way to drop it off for...

This is not your traditional 5-Star hotel and it does not pretend to be one. The Viang Yonok is a hotel owned by people who want to make you feel as being in a 5-Star place without the artificial cache. It is down to earth and you feel pampered by the owners as if you were part of the extended...

I enjoyed everything about this place from the special little touches on your arrival to the flourishing farewells. I received great advice on things to do, Chiang Saen is a beautiful town on the Mekong with amazing ruins dating back to 1100 with great shopping, massage by the river. There were bikes to rent, but I used scooter, beautiful pool,...
