Don't stay here! If you must stay, for goodness sake don't eat there!

We thought we had found a gem, an old wooden guest house on the bank of the Mekong in a great location. We should have realised something was wrong when we found the staff so unfriendly. Not smiling, not welcoming - the promised 600 Baht rooms were suddenly 800 Baht etc.
The rooms have a sort of tatty, run-down, rustic charm. But the tiny bathrooms are the sort with no shower curtain so everywhere gets soaked when you have a shower.
However the BIG PROBLEM is that they have a major plumbing noise problem. The water pipes made a terrible noise all through the night, buzzing, humming, droning - at times it felt like the whole room was vibrating with it. Impossible to sleep for long.

WORST OF ALL was our experience in the "restaurant". The restaurant looks great, but the food is awful! The waitresses were in a bad mood from the start, banging plates down rudely. I live in Thailand and eat Thai food 99% of the time, but just sometimes I fancy some European food. They had 'T-Bone Steak' on the menu for 300 Baht. Obviously domestic beef at this price, but still expensive for a meal in Thailand and I have enjoyed steaks for 2/3rds the price. When it came the ‘steak’ was a twisted, blackened mess, with about 12 tiny glass-hard chips. I tried to cut the steak (with a steak knife) from every angle – it was like the sole of my shoe! I just could not cut it at all. We called over the waitress who went away and came back saying there was nothing she could do because they didn’t have any sharper knives!! We explained that if I could not cut it, then I could not eat it, and so it was no good. She took it away saying they would cook it again! It came back hammered all over into pieces with a thick brown sauce over it. I tried a piece, but had to spit it out – it was just too revolting. I refused to pay for it. There was no manager present so they phoned him/her. I ended up having to pay half to avoid trouble – but had nothing to eat! The Thai people I was with said their Thai food was awful also – far too salty.
I walked along the river (turned right) and soon found a bar called ‘The Local’ and had an excellent hamburger with loads of chips for 100 Baht!

Room Tip: Stay and eat somewhere else! This place looks nice but is a disaster!

Best location in Nong Khai, next to Tha Sadet Market. Guest House on the Mekong River. Fantastic view from restaurant. Guest House is next to Tha Sadet Market, so you will wake up with the city. If you're a late sleeper, this is not for you. It is very noisey. Bathroom is not the best, nor the worse, I had in rooms. I do like a clean bathroom. Hot water and air available. Staff is approachable, but not outgoing. Neither friendly nor rude. Guest House is an old traditional, style Thai house with great wood structure. Wake up and walk into the Tha Sadet Market, or down the prommenade along the Mekong, or walk two (short) blocks away to find either Thai or European restaurants.

Room tip: Ask for riverside rooms ahead of time.
