The staff were friendly but did not speak English so the universal sign language came in handy. The rooms were basic but clean. i would certainly recommend that you upgrade to a river view cabin as the common area overlooking the river is beautiful. We tried the food one night but would not recommend it. If you want something to eat go across the road to the Jungle guest house - The food there is amazing. You can also get laundry service (expensive) at $80B / kg.

If you want a very relaxing place to be one with nature, this is the place for you. The rooms are built above the Soppong River in a treehouse like format. The hotel entrance is right off the main road however but the rooms are quite far from the road so all you hear is the sound of nature. The room itself was rustic and comfortable. The owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. If you have any questions or need recommendations for things to do they are very helpful. The food at the restaurant was also delicious.

We stayed in a bamboo ,wood ,grassed roof room on the river,the balcony over the river, airy with beautiful views around the bed,although not far from a road,traffic noise was ok. The food was beautiful Thai meals, everything I ate was yum.Joy and Burt and their daughter are lovely people. A good place to explore Soppong area from or as a stopover on your travels, we came just to relax between places.spent 3 nights relaxing and eating,went on a little sunrise tour with Burt for morning coffee. Caught the Prempracha bus from chaingmai arcade bus station,that was a great journey also,loved it.

After a bad experience at another hotel we moved to Soppong River Inn and were very happy with our stay. They have a range of different rooms at varying prices depending on budget and are all tucked privately away in the trees. The most expensive and luxurious being down by the river. The staff were all brilliant and the owner helped us organise a trek with a local guide, "Gaymoo" which I cannot recommend enough. We chose the full day tour and visited his local village as well as trekking through the forest and swimming through a cave. Food in the hotel is great too. If you want to get off the beaten track from Pai I would recommend visiting Soppong for a few days and staying here.

Thank you so much for your comments and of course we are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as your day trek with Gaymoo. We will pass your comments along to him. Gaymoo comes from the Karen hilltribe village Muang Paem, which was identified by UNESCO as a sustainable community based tourism project, partly because of their traditional hand weaving with natural dye, so we always pleased to recommend a trek starting from there. It was very nice to meet you and hope you can visit us again!

I reserved a bungalow via Agoda, but upon check in was given a regular room (named Bamboo 2). When I showed my reservation to the owner, instead of honoring it, she claimed it was a mistake made by Agoda. When I tried to insist, she pointed out to one bungalow near the road and claimed this was the only bungalow available (thus trying to have me to give up on the idea, as near the road is noisy etc.), which certainly wasn't the case as apart of me I only saw one other couple and one solo female traveler at the resort at that time) Anyway, room was dark and cold (temperatures at night can get as low as 7-8 degrees Celsius) with no heating whatsoever. to make things worst, the only window in the room did not shut off. The solution of the owner: instead of calling some handyman to fix it, she put a towel between the window and the frame thus trying to prevent the cold from coming in (not really helpful), while all the while complaining that she haven't had a customer like me before (really "sorry" that I complained about a window that doesn't shut off).

Your one star review is the first we have ever received in all our years, but your accusation of dishonesty concerns us the most. Please allow us to clarify your comments and complaints. You did reserve the bungalow in the front of our property with a request for a large bed. As it says in the Agoda listing, this room has two twin beds, so in trying to accommodate your request, we offered to move you to a better room down by the river front with a queen-size bed, and we apologize if you felt that was "dishonest". There were in fact no other bungalows in your price range where we could move you, as you had booked our cheapest room. It does get very cool at night in Soppong now. In the interest of honesty, we reviewed data from our onsite weather station and found that the low temperature on the night you were here was 14.9° and not "7 - 8°" as you stated in your comment, and the high that day was 25.4°. Our low temperature this year was 9.5° several weeks ago and it has never reached 7°. We note that you also complained about the cold weather in your review of your stay in Pai. When you were here, you contacted our staff many times, complaining about the cold, and we did our best by providing you with more blankets. You will find that very few hotels in Thailand and none in Soppong have installed heating systems for the couple of weeks where the temperatures are cool at night. After you left, we followed up on your complaint about the gap in the window and did see that there is indeed a gap of about 1 cm. For that we apologize, and we had not previously received a complaint from other guests. Please understand that when you complained late in the day about that, it was not possible for our handyman to remove and replace the window frame so we did our best to satisfy you by closing the gap with a towel. Although we were unable to verify your comment, we also apologize if our staff did say that we had not had a customer like you before. If they did make that comment they should not have, but in fact we have not. All in all, we did our best to satisfy you and your complaints, but it seems that was not enough. Accusing us of being "dishonest" because of that is inaccurate and uncalled for.
