I would definitely return to Tao Kae Lao”

Both exterior and interior designs are very unique, it combines well with Chiang Khan identity. The room ia quite spacious as well as the bath room. The smell is sooo clean and it is indeed clean. I even asked the owner of what kind of breching liquid they're using. Everything in the room are well equipped with simplicity and necessity. What they offer are so generous, free bike for in-house guest, unlimited high-quality coffee, unlimited noodle cups, unlimited snacks and well-prepared complimentary breakfast. All aforementioned are FREE of charge. They also charge the minimal amount for soft drinks and liquors. The price we paid is exactly the same with the price you will be paying at 7-Eleven. Comparing what we paid and what we got, I will definitely revisit this guest house. The two owners are very helpful and friendly. They even offered a free bike, despite the fact that I had already checked out. The only down side of this place is their blanket is too small.

the owner showed us the place and facility before we check in and it's pretty impressive of the selection they have offered as complimentary (as per guesthouse standard). I have got the room with the river view where i can have my own 2 exit door from my room. the location is quiet yet not far from walking street where you could walk at night.

Highly recommended! Perfect location for those who enjoy the quiet place in an old town Chiang Khan.”

The location is the best which you can enjoy the Kekong river view from the room terrace. It is not too far from Chiang Khan night market and local morning morning which you can easily find yummy local food for breakfast for a cheap price. Since it is not in the middle of business street so, you can find a quiet moment here at the guest house. For active travelers, you can enjoy morning jogging, bicycling along the river to Phu Thok for a sunrise.

Old style gem”

This 3 room guest house is well placed near soi 5, the quiet end of Walking Street and all rooms have a river view. The ground floor room has an entry on to the riverside path and bicycles are freely available for local touring. Some might find the self service breakfast meagre providing only coffee, toast, and a selection of juices and potted meals but for me it was readily available and the coffee machine excellent. The beds are large and comfortable and the rooms have both fans and air conditioning. There are no televisions but the wifi works very well. This guest house may be a little more expensive than other options nearby but you are paying for everything being of a high standard and in excellent working order.

Weekday trip to Chaing Khan”

We read about Chiang Khan walking street and read multiple reviews pros and cons. We settle on a place with Mekong river view close to walking street that has old Chiang Khan charm. Tao Kae Lao delivered. It is a cross between a hotel and airbnb. The owner greeted us like a friend and gave us as much or as little info as we needed. The room is spotless. The place is charming. Amenities on par with 2.5 star hotel. 150m west of Wat Sri Chiang Khan so you can get good night sleep before 11pm. Tao Kae Lao won't suit everyone but should suit most 30-50yo couples.
