Chiang Khan is not easy to find something that has off street parking & is or over priced, or tiny.

I had a bad experience here last trip, getting kicked out of my Guesthouse at 3pm in the afternoon, & swore I wouldn't go back, but Chiang Khan still has a bit of a lure on he Mekong.
After spending considerable time on google maps & booking.com, then riding round for what seemed like hours I ended up at Ban Aomsin

Like most places in Chiang Khan, a small premises, but excellent location in Soi 17 & with of-street parking.
I got the last room, a small one, but for the 600 baht price it did the trick. (the bungalows must be better too I guess.)

A small bathroom, but everything worked

My only complaint is they could have replaced the broken door lock, but never mind. It's probably just one room - the last one I got, so I was thankful.

Now on the way out I spied what looked like a gem of a little place on the cornr of Soi 17 & the walking street market road.
Small, good parking

worth investigating for some. Soi 17 on the corner of Chai Khong road, the walking street market road.

I just spent a day up there. I booked a room at the Chic Chiangkhan Hotel, which is located at the Eastern end of the Walking Street near the temple.

We encountered the same issue of there being no off-road parking, but there was a house down Soi 20 that you can use for 100b a night.

Our room was tiny and you could hear every noise from the adjoining rooms. Having to remove footwear before entering the hotel when wearing full riding gear is a ballache too.

Not recommended.

Chiang Khan is OK for a quick visit, but has little to offer to those looking to stay somewhere for longer than a couple of days.

Yes the thrill of staying in old Chiang Khan.
Over rated & over priced accommodation, no off street parking & generally poor sound proofing in those imitation classic old houses.
Bring on a decent find from someone with off street parking, clean, spacious, and quiet.

I did see this place that looked like it might be better for riders.
