Bad business ”
This place has so much potential, but unfortunately it is not being managed well or at all. We arrived with excitement and were quickly disappointed. On arrival we stood at the outdoor reception for about 15 minutes before anyone even spoke to us. 1 bamboo bungalow was basic but not too bad. The bathroom light was a bulb precariously hanging through the door and wired to a plug socket the other side of the room (This eventually broke....it was sketchy) Next bamboo bungalow was down an unlit mud path, not safe or easy to find in the dark at all! There was a huge spider in the bathroom. Next bungalow was a concrete and air con one, without a mosquito net (Not ideal, as there was a big gap under the door). Within moments a rat ran out from under the bed. It had chewed the blankets. There was a stain on the pillow case which could have been urine and the pillow itself was mouldy. The restaurant was a mess of tables and chairs. Food was ok though. It's hard core. Unclean.
Stunning stay. Secluded, rural location. Perfect for exploring local villages and trekking the hillside. Owner is very friendly and helpful but best visit during peak season when staff are fully prepared and all facilities available/clean.
Awesome experience and would highly recommend . We were there only 2 nights and wished we had more time to stay. Thank you.
dont go ”
the best part of saying there was the drive to the hills... some people are ok, but the owner its all about money and they rip you off. the food also its bad, the bungalows expensive and horrible... u can see the Akha tribe at all, they all want money the waterfalls ok, but the pool its not working nor the wifi,,,, i will not recommend this place.
Lovely Small Village”
Close to natural, friendly staff
Very beautiful and silent place. There were only few other tourists, so it was pretty nice place to be. Specially the food was so delicious and cheap. For naturelovers, no partys here and no wifi. I recommend for two nights.
good food. fantastic neighborhood”
better go there with a motorbike or a car for admire better the neighborhood.electric sockets are a Little Dangerous in the rooms
Great location, horrible hotel ”
The location is amazing, but the hotel is infested with bugs (over 60 bugs were living in our room). The AC barely works, half the time it blows warm humid air making the room way hotter/ humid than outside (extremely hard to sleep in a sauna with bugs crawling on your face). Finding the hotel - The hotel is on google maps (even it showed us the days we booked) one location is in the middle of a field 30min away from the actual location, second is in Chiang rai at a place that we could not locate, third is on the travel websites, none of the 3 are where the hotel is located. After 7+ hrs on a motorbike we rode around an extra 4 hrs going to each location, (we called them numerous times with no clear answer of where the place was besides "look up a water fall and we are there" then finally getting directions from a local. Staff- Some of the staff was helpful the rest don't care you exist and are too lazy or occupied with their phone to help. Don't mind those? You'll love the place!
Wonderful people. ”
I wish we had more time with the akha hilltribe. The people were lovely. The food was great. It's exactly as it looks in the photos. This isn't a 5 star hotel but if you're looking for an authentic experience with locals and beautiful views - this is the spot. I can't wait to go back.
Quiet hill top oasis just outside of Chiang Rai. Great base for multi-day treks or casual walks to the local waterfall and hot springs. I throughly enjoyed my stay in VIP Bungalow #4!!
difficult to get there
Great location but basic accommodation ”
The view out of the huts is amazing. The place is difficult to find and a bit overpriced regarding that the mosquito net had huge holes and the facilities are very basic. Good for one night but then it gets a bit tough. I would recommend it to nature lovers.
Secluded and authentic”
This is great for anyone looking to get off the beaten track, away from the busy city and to experience beautiful nature and authentic village life. The location is gorgeous, with great places to visit within walking distance. The locals are amazing, and the food is decent and well priced (60 baht or so for a meal)
What a quiet night.”
I am a repeater. Last time air condition was out of order. This time it was amended. Bed matress was properly changed. Last time it was very old to sleep confortably. I would repeat my visit Appe Hill Hotel next year. One thing I would like to request is house cleaning periodically at least once a day. No house keeping neuther cleaning was provided during my 5 days-stay. Other than the house keeping issues everything OK. See you next time. Bye. Chisato
A nice escape from the city ”
We had a pleasant few days in the Akha Hill House Hostel. The driver picked us up from the old bus station and drove us the 20km to the hostel. When we checked into the roo we were a bit surprised as the room was very basic considering we booked the "VIP room" (it is just a bed and the bathroom). However the private balcony has an amazing view of the hills which made up for the room (there were two plastic chairs and a tree stump table). The food was very good and the staff seemed very friendly, although conversation was difficult sometimes.
The hill house is just that, a bungalow style room built from the local bamboo and materials. Pretty close to nature, sometimes too close, like the giant Dinosaur lizard that lives in P1. Enjoy.
The only place to stay in Chiang rai”
The best place to stay when in Chiang rai. A truly fantastic and original experience. A location you will find nowhere else. With healthy and very tasty a la carte food. And inexpensive. Always a fire burning and cold beer in the fridge. Loved the self service aspect. Warm and friendly staff. Beautiful views and places to visit in easy and fair walking distance. A magical environment.
To nature lovers”
So beautiful nature :)
Well worth the trip!”
Staff was friendly and offered cold beers after long walks. Sunrise and sun set on the deck of your bungalow is spectacular. This is a must stay if traveling through Northern Thailand.
Even though we visit at the low season we had a great time. The views were fantastic for the prices in the P bungalows. A fan room is fine for all times of the year as the weather in the mountains is much cooler than the cities.
