      Im very proud of myself to found this place. Lol We're traveling as a couple and 2 cats. This place is pet friendly. Clean, beautiful, with a very nice atmosphere. Operated by the family(i think) and everyone is really caring and kind. Located on the riverside and a short walking distance to the walking street and restaurants, which is really great. Breakfast is also great(Pancake is awesome!). We would totally come back to stay here again on our next trip to Pai!

      Beyond Charming”

      I NEVER write reviews, but here is the exception. I just completed a 3-night stay at Baan Tawan Guest House in Pai, Thailand. This beautiful riverfront property is the perfect blend of modernity and tradition. The quiet, serene location is perfectly sited on the immediate edge of the town center, easily walkable to all venues and services. The owners/staff are friendly, gracious and speak excellent English. If you are going to Pai to party, don't stay here; you will spoil the ambiance. If you are going to Pai to appreciate the charm of a small Thai town you would be missing the essence by staying anywhere else.

      Excellent place in Pai”

      Baan Tawan is a guest house based on wood cabins. It is located in a great place near the river, 5 minutes of walking from the walking street. The family who runs the place is adorable and kind. The breakfast is ok, it includes eggs, pancakes and fruit. The cabins are big and warm, the area of the guest house is full of trees and plants, you could spend a day only by sitting near the river on their wooden chairs and reading a book. Highly recommended!

      Beautiful guesthouse, but bring earplugs”

      Baan Tawan has so many things going for it. Lovely gardens, right next to the river, and wonderful sunrise views. The guesthouse has accommodating staff and an alright breakfast included in the room fee . Unfortunately the noise and EDM from the bars in town made its way to the guesthouse until 3AM. Making getting a full night’s rest challenging. Obviously not the guesthouse’s fault, but something for folks looking for some peace and quiet to take note of.

      Ancient palace design and concept, charming but not well maintained”

      This guesthouse is built over a pretty large land site with small bungalows and a couple of 2-storey buildings. It has an ancient palace design, with “watch tower”, a small field and swimming pool. I could see how magnificent this place could be if it’s well maintained. It is located about 10 minutes ride into Changimai central. Not exactly very near.

      Pros: very nice place in grate location Cons: Most of the time the WiFi was not working good enough, and the blankets were also not fun to use and be inside.

      Could of been better”

      We did not get the room we booked instead were given a cabin with the promise of a better room tomorrow. The cabin not that clean and had gaps between the floor boards that you could see the ground . That night when we returned after dinner the TV did not work and in the shower no hot water . The manager came and brought a new cable for the TV but could not fix the water heater.so cold shower for us. Next day moved to different room where every thing worked . OK breakfast .nice grounds with garden and trees.

      Understand it's Covid”

      As I travel through Thailand during Covid, I really feel bad for the Thai people and businesses that rely on us. The fact is this place probably doesn't have the funds to keep it up the way it needs too. Balcony was messy with leaves and dirt, the upkeep does not resemble what's in Agoda pictures. So sorry to say, it worked for a night's sleep, but could use some TLC to get back to it's glory days.

      A riverside choice which is striving to please”

      Location on the river, breakfast, balconies, restaurant

      baan tawan is one of the older properties in pai and is now outshone by several newer and peppier accommodation choices. however, its owners are preparing to pour more money into renovating rooms and keeping it in the upper level of places to stay in pai town. the restaurant is excellent, in terms of both food and service. one dines in a romantic atmosphere close to the bank of the pai river. the degree of commitment by the management to making it an excellent dining choice is shown by having one of the owners serve as its head waiter. the rooms in the main building are comfortable without being breathtaking. the owner said our room was due for a renovation soon. i pointed out that the shower didn't produce a strong stream of hot water and he promised to look into it. the location of the property, both in being next to the river and in easy walking distance of the pedestrian shopping area, is its key selling point. one is only steps away from the hustle and bustle that makes pai a buzzing place to visit, while at the same time being slightly removed from the noise that accompanies the crowds.

      Beautiful bungalows with incredible staff”

      Beautiful area, Big rooms, Extremely helpful staff

      we had a wonderful stay at baan tawan. the owner let us choose our bungalow from the ones available, and all the ones we saw looked fantastic. they are located right on the corner of the main part of pai, so you can walk right into town any time without having the noise from bikes or restaurants. the provided breakfast in the morning was excellent and accommodating for vegetarians. we were left wanting to stay longer after enjoying our stay but they were already fully booked, but the owner was incredibly helpful in helping us book different accommodations to stay in town. i'd highly recommend baan tawan to anyone who wants a beautiful and relaxing place to stay that is still close to all the action in pai.
