We arrived at the Kha Vi with a little bit of trepidation as we'd read some unfavourable reviews on Tripadvisor. When we arrived however, we were checked in politely and efficiently by the English speaking reception staff and shown to our room. This was across the street in another building and they staff helped lug our heavy bags into the room.
The room was large with 2 3/4 sized beds, a small TV, aircon and a fan. The aircon was the best we've had so far on our travels through SE Asia and it could be left on when we went out which is unusual.
We were worried being on the ground floor would be quite loud but, apart from an obnoxious guest shouting at the night porter at around 7am, we slept very well and were undisturbed by any comings or goings. There were building works going on on both sides of the hotel but they weren't all that loud.
Kha Vi is located about 3 minutes walk to the Royal Palace and there is a park at one end of 258 street and the river at the other end. There are plenty of tuk-tuks waiting outside and all of the drivers are friendly and quick to joke with you when you start seeing them regularly.
We also ate breakfast at the hotel on one morning and the food was tasty and similarly priced to other restaurants on the road (a little bit more expensive than other areas).
We have booked a morning bus to Kratie through the hotel and we got a fair price.
Overall, our stay at Kha Vi hotel has been excellent and we would recommend the hotel to other travellers in a heartbeat.
