“famous”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Try to stay at Baan Rim Taling for more than one night, it will be worth it!

Then ask Maleewan for the curry with pork and pineapple, it is world famous and will justify a trip of thousands of miles just to taste!

The river at the bottom of the garden is an excellent place to cool off.

Good wifi most days.

Room Tip: Rooms directly under the private quarters tend to be cooler.

We are currently staying at this beautiful little place by the river. Don and Maleewan have made us feel so welcome!

Very helpful, it's a 400m walk from the main town. They offer you free rides to the Laos border.

You can book your fast or slow boat here to get to Laos.

Thanks so much.

This place is perched right by the river and has a lovely dining area. Rooms are pretty basic but the price justifies that. The owners are very friendly and helpful which is what others had recommended us before. All in all, perfect little place to stop by before crossing the border.

We arrived late and as we were walking to the Baanrimtaling the owners drove past us and offered us a lift. That was the start of a short and welcoming stay. We were only there one night, but would have happily stayed longer. Rooms were comfortable and there was hot water for showers.

As with many we stayed here the night before the crossing to Laos, and thankfully the staff were great and told us to ignore everything we had read a out getting to the border early etc, they provided a free lift for us to Thai Immigration at 9am, buy 10am we had got visas and were officially in Laos.

Great food, great views, a few Mosquitos, but on the Mekong what do you expect.

There are some places, in unexpected, secret parts of the world, you arrive to "at coïncidence". Where you plan to stay "one night" and, without knowing exactly how, one week has passed.

A wooden house aside the Mekong river where time has stopped.

Let you live, and enjoy. You would always find helpful people. You would always catch a smile flying around.

More than the enchanting place, good prices, delicious food, friendly staff and nice people, amazing view. It's an atmosphere.

Thank you, Maleewan and Don.

I only wish that I could rate this place higher than 5 out of 5 - it would get it and then some.
I arrived here very sick from Laos, ending up in hospital.The wonderful owners Maleewan and Don took charge of everything which included visiting me every day in hospital, bringing food for me, advancing me cash when I didn't have enough for the hospital bill and a thousand other kindnesses which you might not expect from family let alone strangers.
This above-and-beyond-the-call-of-duty aside, Baanrimtaling has much to recommend it. The beautiful gardens, full of butterflies and birds, lead down to the river - across from which is Laos. The raised, open-sided restaurant offers cheap, great food with wonderful service and has great river views.
English is spoken here, everywhere is clean, the free wifi is reliable, there is a courtesy ride to the river to get into Laos, shops and sights are nearby.
If it wasn't for the fact that this place seems to need no advertising to be popular then there is no way I would write a review but would keep this beautiful place with its beautiful people all to myself.

Room Tip: If you want a cool room (cool as in temperature) then opt for room 6,7 or 8 downstairs with shared b...
