        Lovely Highland Trip Furnished”

        Beautiful setting; right on rivers edge

        Loved everything. Staff very helpful. Hotel is owned and managed by the Akha hilltribe; and tried to use natural materials to build and furnish the room; let us use the bikes to explore town. Helped to arrange a travel tour; and transportation. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

        Great Character close to the city”

        relaxed river-side garden setting close to the city

        this new akha hilltribe style hotel was conveniently located but in an almost rural setting by the river. friendly and attentive staff were always helpful. room was comfortable and clean. only disappointment, the food wasn't the best i have experienced..... i will definitely come back, but eat out.....

        sweet staff and a peaceful setting”

        This place was very quiet and peaceful. My room was beautiful and had a lovely balcony which you could sit out on. I asked for one a bit further away from reception, which is also further away from the big main road, so I didn't get that much traffic noise, and the view of the road was mostly blocked by trees, if I looked towards it. But my balcony view mainly was of a beautiful jungle-y scene. It felt very nice to sit out there in the evening with a book. I stayed in low season and it felt like I could have been the only guest! I'm not sure if it was for this reason that the place didn't serve food? Which is really a massive drawback considering that it is really far out of the centre. You can walk in in maybe 30 minutes, and there was a little market maybe 15 or so minutes walk, where you can buy some nice local street food. The girl working on reception was really sweet and helpful. The main issue for me, apart from the distance being a bit far out of town (although it is really close to a great coffee house - akha coffee? maybe? amazing coffee there! and a lovely owner), was that the room was damp. I think this is maybe an issue with the climate and rainy season here, so maybe it is the same everywhere? But it meant that the room smelled of damp a bit, and that wasn't great. One last positive is the guesthouse also organise free pickup to go to their mountain village (hill tribe) place where you can stay, and it's super peaceful and beautiful there. Very basic, though - be warned!
