Best Value in Lampang

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Nov 2012
Riverside guest house is a lodging, a homestay style in Lampang. The rooms are decorated based on the original houses in the northern region ("Lanna") style. The location is very convenient. Just next to the walking street area, Kongta street, which is held every Saturday night. The restaurant and shopping areas are in the walking distance.

The rooms are not luxury. They have a feel of northern atmosphere, embedded with a modern style touch. The rooms are based on the structure of the old traditional house styles. There are two typical types, with air con. or no air con. I used to stay there in both types of rooms. The room without air condition is not that bad, if you are not staying in the Summer. The temperature of Lampang is quite comfortable at night. The rooms are small, with local decorations. The bed is fine, but the pillow and blanket is not quite comfortable. The bathrooms are not luxury, quite old and small. But they are clean and sufficient.

The owners are friendly and helpful. They can speak English fluently. So, it's a plus for foreigner travelers. They provide wifi access with no additional cost. The breakfast is lovely. You have to select the breakfast choice, international or Thai style, in advance. The scenes are lovely, the breakfast tables are just next to Wang River.

The best part of this place is price. It's pretty cheap. If the bed amenities are improved, and the bathrooms' conditions are improved, it will be excellent. I think many travelers don't mind to pay a bit more for additional traveling luxury.
Date of stay: October 2012
Room Tip: Don't forget to try omelette with Thai sausage for breakfast....

Reviewed 10 September 2012

I stayed for three nights and fell in love with the place. My room had a large bed and a balcony with a lounger and chairs overlooking the river. It wasn't the most quiet - noisy dogs in the yard - but could barely hear any traffic and the traditional teak and colourful decor was worth it. No tv or fridge (which meant my father stayed elsewhere) and some rooms don't have air-con (which I found I needed). The breakfast wasn't cheap but was very tasty and they bring you nice extras like banana jam and bacon/sausage when ordering eggs on toast. You can get better value in Lampang but I doubt you will find anywhere with more charm.

Room tip: One upstairs with a balcony and air con - I think there are three of these.

We stayed only 1 night on our way from Mae Salong to Sukothai. The place has a bit of a backpacker's feel in a positive way. Laid back and relaxed. Luckily we booked 2 adjoining upstairs rooms (with small private hallway) in advance as all others were taken. Ours were on the street side and thus noisy. For the rest, also thanks to the aircons, they were perfect, certainly considering the price. The guesthouse is perfectly located with a nice terrace (where they serve a great breakfast) and garden at the river, and close to plenty shops and restaurants. Staff and the non-Thai owner are very helpful in making all kind of arrangements and clearly care for your well being without being too present. Overall, we would not have mind staying a few more days !

We stayed at the guesthouse for two nights and loved it. We stayed in the family room which has a double bunk and queen bed. There was plenty of space for us all and we liked that there was no tv. The guesthouse has a lovely restuarant/common area that overlooks the river and this was a great space for playing board games and relaxing. We have booked in for the last night of our holiday in a couple of weeks. We thought 1200 baht a night was a good price for this room with air con. We didn't eat at the guest-house but enjoyed exploring the restuarants nearby. We found nothing to complain about.

Room tip: Room 10 is the family room which are rare in Thailand.

No tv-yay! No aircon (in our room)-none needed, we were on the river,with a fan and lovely breeze. This antique wooden hotel has a great vibe and perfect location. Owner is super cool. This is probably my second favorite hotel in the world. If we ever return to Lampang, would never stay anywhere else.

Room tip: The rooms on the river have great balconies, cool breezes.

A delightful guest house in a lovely location on the Wang riverside. Inexpensive but with all facilities, including option of air-con rooms, large balconies overlooking the river, efficient, hot showers en suite. Big, comfy beds with mosquito netting (useful - it is near to water!). Lovely lady proprietor to welcome you who speaks many languages including Thai, English, several other European, Chinese and Japanese! Her staff are all attentive and friendly. Breakfast is extra, but again reasonably priced, including Continental or American style (eggs to order), and a large a-la-carte selection. In the evening guests can help themselves to the well-stocked frig of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for that romantic night-cap sitting by the riverside with views of the illuminated bridges, night sky, etc. Note what you drink on slips provided and pay when you check-out. I shall stay there again, for sure.

Room tip: If you find fans inadequate choose an air-con room for that little extra cost, and a guaranteed good nights sleep. It can get hot and sticky in Thailand!
