Riverside Houayxay Review

For a convenient night's rest just next to the Lao immigration and the boat to Chiang Khong, Thailand, the Riverside is a decent choice. All rooms come with a/c, TV, hot water, and minibars. Fourteen of the wood-floor rooms have Mekong views, the location is smack in the middle of town, and the adjoining restaurant is probably the best option for a decent meal with a view. For some reason, rooms booked via a travel agent are a far better deal than walk-in, so either call ahead or see if an agent across the river will set you up before crossing.
