“Fine place to drop your bags after a slow (boat) day”
Reviewed March 6, 2010

We booked it in Chiang Khong, not necessary but in the husstle of arriving in Pak beng it's nice to know where you go. They picked us up on the hill above the boats and took us with them. It made our childeren (2 and 5) feel comfortable.
The place is ok, no AC, clean, good shower. Breakfats, here but also in the bakery, was slw but ok. We paid 500 baht to a middle man. It will be cheaper there.
Contrary to the husstle-stories they tell you: they do acceptt baht, electricity stays on and there are enough beds in pak beng.

If you're going to stay in Pak Beng..... then do yourself a favour stay here!
The room was spotlessly clean and as there was only cold water to the bathroom and it was very cold..... the owner had supplied two large vacuum flasks of hot water for washing. Breakfast was bacon and eggs and coffee - most welcome. He then made a packed lunch, a salad bagette - which was a work of art and tasted better.
I cannot speak highly enough of this little guesthouse - our short overnight stay was a pleasure.

Given that accommodation in Pak Beng can be very difficult especially if you are coming upstream and all the best rooms will have been snaffled by the downstream passngers who have arrived earlier this is pure gold. Modern (2006) with clean if simple rooms (USD 15) with bathrooms and hot ( very hot) water. Breakfast (not included) OK, sandwiches made for the boat. A few metres from the landing. Book in advance if you can.

We'd heard all sorts of horror stories about Pakbeng and terrible accommodation. This guesthouse is very nice. It's right on the road about 150m up from the jetty, The rooms were clean, comfortable and the gas fired showers worked perfectly. The electricity was switched off at 11pm and came back on at 7am. They organised breakfast and sandwiches too that were about the same price as elsewhere, just a bit slow.
We booked a room from Easy Trip in Chiang Khong and paid 500B for one night. When we arrived, a couple we travelled with ran up the hill and got one of the last rooms for 300B. So the commission is high but at least you know there is a good room for you when you just want to crash after the boat trip. I think there are only 7 rooms and Easy Trip had booked at least 4 of them the day we arrived. According to the sign, you could call Mr Tip on [----] or on mobile [-----] and they may take bookings over the phone. The number in the Lonely Planet is a mobile no so won't work with the area code printed.
