Staying at Riverside Houay Xay Hotel in Huay Xai, Laos

Accommodation in Laos

In 2019 I did stay at Houay Xay Hotel (formerly known under another name), located right along the Mekong River. And along the main street in the center of town. 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. Sorry I did not make any photos myself but the shown photos are a good representation of reality. Recommended for just a night stay-over in town. This hotel has private & covered parking for cars & motorbikes.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
