I really don't understand why people have been giving this hotel bad reviews? We stayed 2 nights at Akha river house, we had a room with a private and clean bathroom and only payed 400 baht/night. The room had a big balcony with a nice view facing the small river and the hotel is located 10 minutes walking distance from...

Stayed 2 nights in the new rooms during our time in Chiang Rai. Tidy room with a balcony, clean bathroom. Staff were helpful enough, motorbike rental available. Roughly 10-15 motorbike ride to city centre

Being on a budget we booked this place as the pictures made it look quite quirky and fun. It was nothing like the pictures! We had booked a double room with shared bathroom, the building felt like it was going to collapse everytime we walked, you could hear and feel anyone who was walking around as well. The walls are...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! We booked on booking.com where they described every room as having air conditioning, a fridge and satellite TV. We were placed into a room with none of these. Instead it had 100s of ants crawling on the walls, a door I could break with one hand, Windows that don't fully shut, a basic fan...

We booked this hotel because it claimed to have "Free wifi, air con for all rooms, toiletries, towels, free bikes", etc. We got there late in the evening. The room they showed us was disgusting- mold and insects all over the walls, dirty sheets (my friend's sheets had ants crawling on them) and no air con. We got an upgrade...

The common area is really great. It has pool, ample seating and a river. The rooms are cheap and dirty. The beds are big and comfy. The staff are helpful. The views are the best for budget chiang rai.

I am all for budget rooms and 500/baht a night is a good price for most hotels in Chiang Rai but our water turned off the second night and our air conditioner leaked water the entire time. The bed was also quite itchy and the whole room was full of dust.

If you are on tight budget and want to get the budget rooms in building behind, don't and try other places with similar 250b mark where you can get your own clean shower etc. It could be quite OK if they would not just take care of the new building. The bathroom is not cleaned at all, the room is...

We spent one night at Akha River Guesthouse. It was awful, the room STANK of cigarettes, the walls were black with mould, ants all over the bathroom walls and no bikes to rent (as they say there are). Don't get me wrong, we are two 20somthings travelling on a tight budget, we don't mind slumming it in the slightest, but...
