“Clean, modern but cheaply built hotel, with great staff”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Selected this hotel as my husband likes to swim and a bigger than average pool is a plus.
Our room accessed the central courtyard pool from the deck. Build quality is poor though and some fixtures need maintenance...towel rails and shower head etc all a bit off. Hot water could sometimes be hard to find. Noise does reverberate through the concrete and from upstairs rooms and without airconditioner you may need ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Lots of happy cheerful staff who are keen to help even with limited english! Great laundry facility and breakfast was nice...out of town as are most of the hotels and a tuk tuk will cost about 100 baht each way. Rooms could do with a desk and chair as we were here on business conference. Good internet. Four nights is probably long enough.

Room Tip: Weigh up pool access over noise from overhead!

We stayed 3 nights in Budsabong Hotel . The concept of this place is pretty special : most rooms are connected directly to the enormous pool or overlooking it . The location is in the countryside not far from the city center ,surrounded by gardens and between fields of rice and sugar cane . From Reservation to all necessary arrangements in and around Nong Khai the Hotel staff was very helpful , especially the owner Mrs. Budsabong . Nong Khai is a very easygoing place : nice markets and a long promenade along the Mekong worth a relaxed 2-3 stay , As we didn't want to go where all tourists normally stay , we were happy to find this place which is different and located discreetly . In order to get there and into town we rented a motobike but a tuktuk is always at hand or the hotel 'limousine' . There are several nearby restaurants at the Mekong and also a small day market . Highly recommended !

Reviewed April 20, 2010

This is not the sort of hotel I would expect to see in Nong Khai. It's a new property with rooms surrounding a large swimming pool. The room decor is modern and austere, but I am not sure whether it will stand the test of time. You need a car if you stay here since it's about 5 km down the river from the town of Nong Khai.

The room prices are about 1,800 Baht, which probably makes it too pricey for backpackers. But for visitors and expats visiting from Bangkok - particularly those with children - this is a wonderful place when you are staying in Nong Khai, particularly in April, when it is very hot here in Thailand. I don't know of a better place in this area.
