Not the cleanest place but it's a decent place for the balcony with great views. No AC but it has a fan which is more than enough for the chilly nights in Nong Khia. Hot water is a plus as well. Definitely do a tour with the owner Mr Mang at his local tour agency Nong Khiaw Adventure Tours.

The lodge is a bit more expensive than the places across the river (100,000 kip for a double room with ensuite with hot water) but it felt much nicer than most of the bungalows I looked at. I had the room right next to reception, a little bit away from the main building of the lodge. I had a balcony...

The price of the room is affordable and worth it for the view my friend and I could get from the balcony. The rooms are spacious and although it is fan-cooled, it still cooling. Beds are also comfortable. However, rooms are not as clean as expected. Overall, worth a one or two days stay.

Beautiful setting - Big, clean, spacious rooms. Relaxing setting out of the hustle and bustle of the town. A 10 minute stroll to bridge where cheaper accommodation is situated - just depends on what you want.

We stayed here for a couple of days and had a room on the upper floor. The view was amazing, overlooking the river and with the mountains in the background. Value is good. The owner also runs a travel agency. He is a bit of a hustler, but he means well.

For $20 a night, pretty good value. It is in a lovely position on the river, and the rooms are not too bad. But for this price you cannot expect perfection. There were yellow paint stains on the floor. The shower was only just warm, and very cramped. The stairs to the upper floor were really more like a ladder...

This place has a nice view, and spacious bedrooms, however the bathroom can be disgusting. Our bathroom was smelling like sewage. Nobody is there to help you out. Mr Mang, the owner, who has a travel agency, is always trying to sell you something, and quite honestly, we did not like the tour we took with his agency.

This lodge has really nice views of the river and is a 5 min walk to the bridge, restaurants and bus station. You have access to tables and chair on the balcony which is a nice place to read and enjoy the view. The staff are super and friendly too. You can hear your neighbors, so the place is really...

Stayed here only the one night, in a bungalow, which was a reasonable size with bathroom. View from the small but private balcony was wonderful, so peaceful watching the fishermen on the river and away from the town, although it is a small town (at the moment. ..) so wouldn't have minded being a but more central. Breakfast was extra...
