Breakfast for an added 150 Baht ($5) explains without hyperbole the outrageous nature of this hotel. As it is apparently useful to travelers going into Laos, they'll happily make their escape from the grim confines of this overpriced and most inappropriately uncomfortable accommodation. Hairs, stairs, and an unhelpful staff.

We only stayed one night prior to crossing over to Laos. It was a great location for this purpose and close to many places to eat and 7-11. The staff was very friendly and efficient. We had a double fan room and a triple fan room. These rooms were clean and basic, but many cob webs and insects (ants on... More

We stayed here in a twin room for a couple of nights. Overall it's clean but maintenance should be done for the facilities. The men's bathrooms and toilets were out of order and the other bathrooms had showers that were not attached to anything and didn't work properly. The staff wasn't very friendly either and half of the time we... More

We spent one night there on our way to Laos. Hotel was small but clean, room basic but confortable and clean. We had a nice terrace overlooking the Mekong river and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The owner was very kind and arranged a cheap transfer to the border for us.

We stayed here for one night in order to cross to laos the next day. The place is clean and all you need. It's family owned and they are very friendly and helpful. It's a cute hotel with river view. Has a restaurant on the property ( didn't get a chance to try it). Close to Border crossing ( 20... More

I like to travel inexpensively, and usually without frills. But life is too short for non-air-conditioned rooms, so, I chose The River House, which, at $28 for the night, was expensive by local standards, but worth the investment. It's a simple, clean, comfortable place if you want a bit of privacy and can afford to pay a little bit more.... More

We spent one night here in a room with a balcony. The room was modern, clean and comfortable. We had a King bed which was hard as usual in Asia and a flat screen TV, fridge, Air con, hot water, good wifi and a kettle with free coffee. The lady that runs the desk was nice and they also have...

We arrived late at the River House and paid extra price to get a riverside room, abt 600bht/night. We expected some much nicer rooms and were a bit disappointed. It is clean and comfortable but definitely overpriced. The shower head was broken. Friendly staff.

This is what we would call a "mean" hotel. It is nicely situated overlooking the river but the rooms are too small to put anything down with no shelves and the only place to work on your computer is also too small to rest the computer on. There is nowhere to put your clothes and only 2 hangers in the... More

This place has very good river views. The room was clean & we had our own bathroom, TV, Fridge, A/C & Fan & free Wi-Fi. It was nice to sit & watch the boats going up & down the river early morning & late in the afternoon. We only stay one night as we were touring North Thailand by motor... More
