Staying at Riverside HouayXay Hotel in Huay Xai, Laos
HouayXay Hotel (formerly known under another name), where I stayed in November 2019, is located right along the Mekong River. And along the main street in the center of town. See location tag. Be aware that it seems there is another hotel with almost the same name. Also be aware that although the hotel is right along the Mekong River only a few rooms have really river-view. There is no doubt it is a bit older hotel and lacks good maintenance. But everything is clean and in working order. And for me just sleeping for 1 night that is enough. And as I was with the motorbike I prefer a hotel with private on-site parking. Here even covered under the hotel! All rooms have private balcony, private bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning and an old TV. The hotel does not have a restaurant but serves some coffee & tea in the morning. And there is a huge verandah along the Mekong River, where probably once was a restaurant. Staff was very friendly and speaks a little bit English. You can book this hotel via Agoda. Sorry I did not make any photos myself but the shown photos are a good representation of reality. Highly recommended for just a night stay-over in town.
