GO ELSEWHERE………. My partner and I booked four nights over the Songkhran weekend. What a HUGE mistake!! We paid 425 baht per night for a Bungalow room, but on check-in we were given a standard double room that was NOT the style of room we had paid for online (as per the photos that influenced our decision to stay there). The room we were given on arrival was actually advertised online for 135 baht cheaper, yet we had already paid the higher rate for the better room. I pointed this out to Malewaan, the female owner, when we saw the room she gave us, and she immediately went into a rant blaming the online booking company saying that it was their fault, then turned her back on us and walked out. Fact is, it’s her website and her photos of the rooms. She obviously doesn’t computer check or update which of her rooms are available or booked online on a daily basis. Therefore, potential guests are booking rooms that may or may not even be available, complete with discrepancies in the pricing. When we checked the reviews, (in hindsight), we found she has a history dating back to 2015, of falsely advertising rooms and overcharging for what you actually get. In our case, we booked and paid for a more expensive room, but were given a cheaper room, and as it turns out, the worst room in the guest house. She made NO attempt to rectify this situation whatsoever, let alone offer any sort of refund for our overpayment, preferring instead to blame the online booking company, and then treated us with contempt for even daring to question that the room she was giving us was NOT the room we had booked and paid for in good faith. As the owner, it is her responsibility to make sure, that room occupancy and availability is updated on a daily basis. She fails miserably at this most basic task. To make matters worse, when we came back to the guest house that same first evening after having a wander around Chiang Khong, we greeted all those in the restaurant (which included the owner) with Sawadee Krup, most of the other guests said hello, yet Malewaan just stared at us and said nothing. Her non-action made it clear she had attitude toward us and certainly doesn’t like it when you call her out on her false room advertising, overcharging and basic mismanagement. If you read through the reviews you will read where other guests have also seen the other side of Malewaan. She fails to take responsibility for NOT updating her online room availability, which results in false advertising, yet will still take your money, charging you for a higher price room but actually putting you in a lower priced room. The room. Room 3 is directly under the restaurant, and as it is an old wooden building that has fallen into disrepair and seen better days, the whole room shakes and creaks from every footstep and chair that moves above you. You can also listen clearly to every conversation from the restaurant above which is made worse when guests keep drinking and talking till all hours each night. And at 7am the noise starts all over again when the first guests hit the restaurant for breakfast and Malewaan’s daughter starts another day in her restaurant playground. Oh, and why there is a mould ridden fridge, (that doesn’t even work), in the room, is anybody’s guess!!! The attached bathroom. In a word SKANKY!! It is disgusting. There is mould ingrained into every crack and crevice of the shower cubicle. It is totally rank. Malewaan obviously has no idea as to what basic hospitality hygiene or cleanliness means. The toilet is not even cemented/attached to the floor properly, so when you sit on it it moves around as though it is going to fall over. Seriously, we did laugh at that. But yet again, this simply reflects the mismanagement of Malewaan and the disrespect she conveys to her paying guests. The roosters. The resident roosters start crowing from 4am, well before sun-up. Both mornings we were woken by the incessant noise from the roosters and laying hens. Some may find that romantically exotic. We found it yet another annoying factor that prohibits guests from enjoying a peaceful nights’ sleep. We should also add that Malewaan’s toddler daughter, is allowed to free range in the restaurant area from 7am onwards. The restaurant area is her playground with all her typical child noises and electronic games echoing down into Room 3. As parents ourselves we have no problem with the toddler, but paying guests have a right to enjoy peace and quiet. Yet another example of Malewaan’s mismanagement, and inability to separate her business from her personal life. All in all, Baan Rimtaling is the WORST guesthouse we have ever stayed in in Thailand. It is overrated, overpriced, noisy and disgustingly dirty. Even after the same issues have been critically reviewed by other travellers dating back some 4 years, Malewaan continues to falsely advertise, hoodwink and overcharge paying guests. She continues to espouse blame toward the online companies (who actually promote her business), whilst taking NO responsibility or blame for her own inept management, greed and contempt for international guests who actually pay for her livelihood and sometimes dare question her ethics. Look at our photos and video attached and make up your own mind. We stayed 2 nights out of the 4 we had paid for, then went ELSEWHERE. Give it a wide KARMIC berth!! Its DISGUSTING.
Beautiful guest house on the Mekong River

This place would be perfect for the night before entering Laos or am escape from the city. So clean with a breath taking view of the mighty Mekong River. The owner was one of the sweetest and most welcoming Thai people I've ever met and on top of that, the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a scenic getaway from the city and ideal for couples.
Very nice stay

We arrived quite late at the Thai boarder from Laos and a tuktuk brought us to this beautiful home stay. It is located directly next to the Mekong river and has a breathtaking view from the balcony. We hat great Thai food in the evening and even the Thai breakfast was really fresh and delicious. The owner is heartwarming and informed us about the surrounding area in very good English. Thank you very much.
Enjoyable stay at Baanrimtaling

The Homestay has a very river view. I enjoyed walking by the river in the early morning. The location is very near to place to find our dinner & breakfast. The homestay's kitchen is not operating in the morning as too few customer. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Good hostel with extremely helpful and friendly owner

We stayed there for one night after coming from the slow boat in Laos. The dorm was good and pretty quiet. Only the matresses were a bit to hard. The bathroom had really warm water, which was great. The food in the restaurant there was tasty and with a reasonable price and you have a great view on the Mekong from there. After dinner we had some talk to the owner, which gave us some really great views into the history and developing of laos and Thailand. Also we got good instructions to find the bus to Chiang Rai. For the price of 100 Baht in the dorm absolutely a great place which is quite close to the bus station (only about 400m). I would definitely stay there again.
