We certainly had no luck. A room in the middle of the reception and an other one under the noisy floor of this one was given to us. Brilliant hospitality but the rest did not follow by the whole. The restaurant is far from being the best that I knew in Thailand.

Like so many before us, we came to Chiang Khong only for one night on our way to Laos. We arrived in the early afternoon and headed right for the Baanrimtaling since it is walking distance from the bus drop-off. The location is spectacular, perched right on the Mekong river with a view to Laos.

Unfortunately the owners were out for the afternoon/evening so we didn't get any info on the area because the woman working there didn't speak a word of English. But when the owners did return, wow, they were very enjoyable to talk to. Don gave us a whole historical rundown on the area and Malawan cooked up a really good dinner. The specialty of the night was pork chops so we ordered that and the pineapple curry that everyones raves about. It's true, it was good. The overall food quality was excellent. We also enjoyed our breakfast the next morning with the local passionfruit.

They gave us plenty of advise for crossing the border in the morning and helped arrange a tuk-tuk to take us.

The setting is great and the common area is very comfortable. We originally chose one of the bungalows but then moved into a back room that was more enclosed because we were worried about the bugs. We probably shouldn't have moved. Can't say I recommend room #2. It had two single beds and a bunk bed. We were traveling with a five year old so she was thrilled with the bunkbed. But the beds were like sleeping on slabs of cardboard, no air circulation and we were not sure when the sheets had last been washed. The bathroom was a little creepy with an earthen back wall (it felt like a cave). The rooms just looked like they needed a little TLC and the cockroach running around didn't help.

But the price was right and for the hospitality and the food, the place was well worth it. That is why I am giving in a very good rating. The room itself was not worth the 350B we paid but everything else made up for it. I would still recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area, just because of the owners. Also some of the other rooms looked more airier and better maintained. The bungalows have there own terraces with comfy chairs and they weren't much more than what we paid. All rooms have fans and the open ones have mosquito netting.

Yes, I would stay here again!

Ok so, we stayed here for the usual trip to Luang Prabang.(please see end note as this is most important*)
I had bad food poisoning so went straight to bed, however....staff don't speak English AT ALL unless owner is there. No big deal but u can't order ANYTHING and expect to get the correct order as we found out. As I was sick I just wanted tea and this was impossible! Next day my boyfriends feet were covered in ant bites that he got in restaurant. A week later we are in Vientiane....and he's gone to 3 chemists for creams over the week and bites are still there and itchy. One or two are now raw from scratching.

We stayed during rainy season which makes it impossible to sleep. There was water literally pouring onto tin roofs or something all night.

Bathroom had various leaks then puddles.

WORST PART**
Ok so owner SEEMS extremely friendly,helpful, knowledgeable. Shes definitely an intelligent woman.But she's a business woman. She had a huge info board on Laos with weather, currency,visa and slow boat info. All very official looking. As I was sick I didn't research price of slow boat and Malaween KINDLY offered to book it for us. She charged me and boyfriend €30 each for a ticket that cost €11 each.
It took her a 30 second phone all to arrange. As it was on a big information board we assumed it was official prices, we were totally ripped off. We didn't find out until we arrived in Luang Prabang and asked everyone else what they paid.

If u want somewhere to sleep go for it, but book your own slow boat. Place does have character and is quirky. But like all tourist areas in Asia...they want to take your money!!!!

I heard some horror stories about guesthouses included in package tours to luang prabang so we knew to do it on our own and we stayed here before taking the slow boat. Best choice we made. The owner was welcoming and friendly. The food was amazing and filling. The drinks are self serve and you just keep track of what you take in a book and there is even a free drop off at the border crossing with instructions in the morning. Wish I had more time there!

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.
