The outside space is nice enough but the place is generally a bit run down: rooms have dust and cobwebs, towels are stained, mosquito screens are patched with bandaids... For a fan room this bad in the middle of nowhere, 700 baht is plain indecent. On top of that, walls are paper thin. If nobody is there, fine. But as...

Dear 'Bad_Bra1n" - We do appreciate your time in providing comments. We note that you stayed in one of our Bamboo Rooms, which was fully renovated including new flooring less than a year ago, so we were sorry to hear that you found it "run down" as we do our best to keep all our rooms fresh and updated. We...

We pre-booked a king bed room for 700thb through agoda the previous day, on arrival the manager claimed to have not been notified of our booking, we were shown a 700thb room which only had a double bed that we declined, we were then shown a very pleasant king sized room at a rate of 1000thb and due to the...

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments, Gerry. We also take such input seriously in hopes that we can find ways to improve our service.

My girlfriend and I stopped in here on a whim while riding through the Mae Hong Son Loop and could not have been happier! The owner is very friendly and accommodating, the bungalows are clean and comfortable, and the restaurant is surprisingly delicious. The Moo Manao came recommended by the server and was probably my favorite dish in all of...

We chose Soppong River Inn to stay at while driving around the Mae Hong Son loop. Right on the river, this place is beautiful! We stayed in Bamboo 2, which was quiet and had direct access to an incredible deck that offered a tranquil view and places to relax. The bed was comfortable, and the shower had good water pressure....

Thanks so much for your nice comments, Megan. Yes, due to our elevation, most of our guests rarely feel they need AC during our cool nights, but we do have some AC equipped rooms just in case. We are all happy that we helped you feel at home and enjoy your stay and our food. :)

Very decent place in this little town where options are scarce. The rooms are pleasant and definitely good value. Staying in the deck / common area while listening to the sound of the river was very pleasant. The restaurant of the hotel is excellent, and already a good reason to stay there.

This is a great hotel and certainly by far the best in the area. Soppong is a relative quiet village sandwiched between Pai and Mae Hong Son. The staff here are so attentative and helpful. The food at the hotel cafe is also of a very good standard. Tasty Thai food at a very affordable price. Loved the Khao Tom...

Highly recommend this spot. In particular if you can get a room on the river. Very good value, nice people, good food. The grounds are very leafy and there's lots of butterflies around. Cute cats too.

I stayed at the Soppong River Inn for three nights, and my stay was sheer bliss from beginning to end. It's situated in a very untouristed little town called Soppong, and I couldn't have felt more welcome, comfortable and happy. While I was there, the owner's daughter, Aom, was running the inn. A lovely, graceful and kind young lady, she...
