“Nice room bad breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

The location is great & our room was clean & comfortable, which was great for the price, but I think it is a better hotel for local Thai than foreigners. The breakfast had no eggs & white bread for toast. We ended up eating just a piece of toast & jam. We love Thai food, but we were hoping for eggs or something western/ simple.

We are sorry to hear that dinner menu has different prices for Thais, but not surprised. I wonder if other places do the same.

We looked at the hotel rooms, they seemed okay, but we eventually decided on another hotel.
However it's the restaurant I'd like to comment on. We asked to sit at a table overlooking the river. While a table was being cleared we picked up a menu to check dishes and prices. It was in Thai with English underneath. When we were seated the waitress said we had the wrong menu. She produced an English only one. I pointed to the table of 10 Thais sitting next to us that were using the same menu. She was was insistent I use the smaller English menu, however I was also insistent. Eventually she gave up and left both menus on the table.
In fact the menus were pretty much the same except for the one she wanted me to use was 20 to 30 baht more for each dish.
We ordered our food and watched as the table next to us ordered additional food and were served before we received anything. After a 35 minute wait we gave up, paid for our drinks and left.
Evidently at this restaurant there are two menus, a higher priced one for farang and a lower price one for Thais!

Although they didn't speak great English,the staff seemed friendly enough. Think we got upgraded to river view room as had balcony. Room decent size with free water (had to pay for tea/coffee though). Bathroom was fine. Free wifi. Large, modern hotel which was well located to nearby pubs and restaurants (try Bamboo Mexican House for amazing bread). In between boat dock/immigration and bus station. All in all, fine for a stay of one night.

We were only here for one night, as we were crossing over to Laos the next day.
The rooms were nice and clean, but don't be fooled in to having a cup of tea or coffee as you would have to pay for these items.
The beds were comfy.
We didn't have a control for the Air Con, we asked for one but is was broken, we could have the A/C on we stood on a stool to turn it on, we were asked if we wanted to change rooms, but thought we didn't need to do that.
We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening.
We did have breakfast in the morning and that was a fine way to start the day.
We were there as a group so don't know about price but I do know there were cheaper in town but standard who knows!

We had a 1 night stay before taking a slow boat down the Mekong to Luang Prabang. Beautiful location looking across to Laos across the river. Rooms clean, tidy and comfortable all with river views. Good dinner and breakfast and in a central location in the midst of the town. Good service and air con. Would recommemd

We enjoyed our stay at Namkhong Riverside Hotel in Chiang Khong. We had a lovely view of the Mekong River from our room and it was very peaceful. The restaurant at Namkhong has good Thai food too. If we are in Chiang Khong again, we will definitely stay here.

This hotel was part of our driving package of the Golden Triangle. The hotel is on one of the main streets in Chiang Khong and has ample parking if you are driving.

The reception area is functional and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel does not have an elevator (at least not that we could find) so you do need to carry your suitcases up or down stairs.

The rooms are small but comfortable and have a balcony that looks over the river and into Laos. It is quite idyllic with small boats. The bathroom is simple and not very well planned nor is it very obvious how to obtain hot water for the shower. The bed is comfortable and the air conditioning works well.

The breakfast is simple but varied with both Western and Asian dishes. We ate in the restaurant in the hotel (also overlooks the river) and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant staff were very friendly and we have a lovely evening.

There is free internet in the rooms.
