Riverside Houayxay

168 Centre Rd., Huay Xai, Laos

About a third of the wood-floor rooms in this midtown hotel have superb Mekong River views. All rooms come with air-conditioning, TVs, hot water, and minibars, and the adjoining restaurant is among Huay Xai's best options for a meal with a memorable view. The Riverside, next to the former ferry crossing to Chiang Khong, Thailand, is decent choice for a convenient night's rest. For some reason, rooms booked through a travel agent are a far better deal than walk-in requests, so either call ahead or see if an agent across the river will set you up before crossing.

PROS

  • centrally located

  • good restaurant with memorable views

CONS

  • expensive for Huay Xai
