Rimnam Guesthouse fits the bill for a typical Chiang Khong guesthouse: in the middle of town, cheap, slightly dingy rooms out back, pricier air-con river view rooms out front, with terraces overlooking the Mekong, plus a well placed restaurant and helpful staff.

It’s all-round average, but that’s not a negative thing and in other towns, less blessed with a great accommodation range, it would stand out. Rooms in the two-storey, orange-painted block are a decent size, clean and come with ensuite bathrooms and hot showers, TV and WiFi while the front ones are large and airy with balconies. The rear ones are a tad on the grungy side with zero views and probably best forgotten. Note all rooms have air-con but fan prices are applied if you don’t turn use it. They have one huge family room with four beds and two separate shower and toilets, which would be good for a family or bunch of people travelling together. Their restaurant gets good reports with standard Thai and a few Western choices at reasonable prices and a pleasant seating area. This might not be our first choice, but it is good value if you can grab an air-con room -- consider it a backup choice.
