We stayed in a room with a deck overlooking the river. Outstanding scenery, beautiful room, open air shower, wonderful staff. My favorite (and least expensive) place I stayed in month long visit to Thailand

One night stay- overpriced for what you get. Freezing cold water- the water heater didn't make it hot and it was so late I didn't want to bother waiting to see if it could be fixed. The room was also dusty in spots- mainly hard to reach places like the fan. It was so thick on there I didn't want...

Thanks for your comments and we always like to know where we can improve. Sorry about the dust on your ceiling fan, and we have already cleaned that. As for your hot water, we use individual gas hot water heaters to be sure each room gets a good, hot flow and sometimes the gas tank runs empty, as was in...

Very basic bungalows but clean and actually very good for the price. The restaurant and breakfast are good. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Soppong. The staff was also very nice and the owner was really kind!

Thanks so much for your compliments, Giga. :) Yes, as you said, you stayed in one of our basic bungalows. All are different and we also have more upscale and spacious ones. We hope you can come back for another stay, and maybe stay in one of those.

The owner has such a wonderful spirit--a friendly, warm, kind, smart, and genuine woman, so knowledge about Thailand, and with a superb taste for music. I feel lucky to have known her, and grateful for her act of kindness in giving me a ride from Soppong to Chiang Mai. It is no coincidence her guest house is #1 is Soppong....

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...
