    Excellent stay here!”

    The location is perfect: right on the river and easy walk to restaurants, etc., yet quiet. Room was just as described; clean and spacious; facilities were fine. Host was exceptionally hospitable and helpful, and has great lattes available in his little coffee shop. Be sure to talk with him about arranging day trips and onward travel, as he is very knowledgeable and helpful. I would absolutely stay there again. Can’t think of any negatives.

    The Owners were very friendly and helpful, also the Husband spoke English. Quite easy to find and a good location right beside the Mekong River. Within walking distance of Tha Sadet Market further along the Riverbank, and DD restuarant for a delicious evening meal. Their Coffee was really good. The Room & Bed were OK and Clean. The only thing wrong was the A/C and Fridge were noisy.

    Basic but comfortable stay near the river ”

    One of the friendliest places I have ever stayed in Thailand. The owner showed great concern for my sister who was quite ill during our stay. The hotel is walking distance from a great German Bakery and after a short walk you will also reach riverside restaurants. Highly recommended in Nong Khai.

    Excellent service, peaceful location with great views ”

    This guest house is located directly in front of the river with unblocked views of the river. It is located in a very peaceful and quiet location and yet within walking distance from convenience stalls, laundry shop and local eateries. The room is very clean, neat and very comfortable. You can just relax in the room the whole day or at their cafe and enjoy the breeze. Another thing to highlight is the service provided by the owner which is top notch. Upon arrival, the owner personally brought us to the laundry shop as we have 2 big bags of dirty clothes to wash. As we were leaving for Laos the next day, the owner even personally drove us from the guest house to the border and along the way, he stopped by a pastry shop and brought us some delicious local pastries. Best service I have experienced from staying at so many guesthouse. The owner speaks excellent english and will provide you with all the information you need about Nong Khai. Will definitely be back on my next visit.

    Good enough for a few nights in NK”

    Great location right beside the Mekong and super friendly owners - they have decent bikes for rent also and a nice cafe. Downstairs room is fairly basic, functional - about right for the price. No bed sheet provided (only blanket?), also poor lighting in bathroom. Can be a bit noisy during the night and early mornings with neighbors, passing tuks tuks, street sweepers, etc.

    Great proprietor”

    The room is functional and basic but large and comfortable. Nothing luxurious but all the elements (airco, large fridge, hot shower) function well. I am disabled and had a ground floor room, but if you are able bodied get a room on the first floor which have unobstructed views of the Mekong. The proprietor was terrific. When my walking stick broke he drove me to the largest pharmacy in town to get a replacement. He gave great advice too.

    Everything was good about the place except the housekeeper must have been off. The room was never cleaned, water replaced, bed , made or anything else done while I was there. That aside, the owner was friendly and helpful, the location was good, and I’d stay there again if they agreed to clean the room.

    What a find ”

    The Rim Riverside us a 4 br guest house located on the banks of the Mekong River. Don't expect luxury, however, what you loose out on you gain on the wonderful warm welcome and continues helpful tips from the owner Gung. I loved this place, it was so relaxing to sit in the small coffees tea, watch the world go by and meet interesting people. The rooms are basis, but have your needs.. No breakfast, but is an advantage it will force you to stroll along the promenade where you can find a few nice places within 1 km.. Owner Gung will always offer you a lift downtown fir an evening meal. Yes a wonderful 3 nights for he, thank you for being part of my life.

    Pleasant stay thanks to fantastic hosts”

    Stayed in Nong Khai for one night and chose The Rim Riverside due to its price and the recommendations from other travellers. I did not regret the decision: the room is fair according to what you pay for and the hotel is located close to all of Nong Khai's main attractions, so this would have been enough reasons already to stay here. What really makes the difference are the owners: both are very friendly, giving recommendations on the surroundings and even offer a transport to the bus station to go back to Udon Thani. They hand out bikes for a small fee in order to catch up with the city and run a small coffee shop on their premises. The whole atmosphere is very relaxing and friendly, you really feel like staying at home. Plus they have a couple of sweet dogs and a cute cat. Highly recommended!

    Tempted to give this place a bad review just to keep it a secret. The guy who runs it lives on site and cannot do enough to help. He is a gem. Great river views. Uninterrupted accross the Mekong with Laos as a background. The only thing better than the view is the service.

    Lovely stay”

    We loved our stay at The Rim, and would definitely recommend the place. Mr Tung is wonderful, always there to help with anything, and his wife is the happiest Thai woman I know. Their coffee is great too, there is a good reason the cafe is called Coffeeholic. Big room, clean, everything fine, just maybe slightly expensive. Still, I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Gracious hosts, great cappuccino ”

    Stayed for 6 nights. I had an upstairs room. The room is basic. Bedside tables would have been nice so would not have to put phone water etc on the floor by the bed. The curtain doesn't quite fit the window so there is a gap letting the light shine through. Not seen on the photos here is a new building blocking most of the view of the river and I guess built on where the garden was, not really much of a garden now. I think there is just the one room in the new building, but that will be the best room for the view. The room was clean, the a/c shower and fridge all worked well. The host, Tong, is a lovely guy, always ready to help and make delicious coffee. There is a funny cat that will obsessively suck on your hands or arms when you pet him, never saw a cat do that before! I can recommend this guest house and would stay there again.

    Amazing - This is your place”

    My experience at this little hotel has been incredible. Initially booked for one night, but extended to three nights. The location is fabulous, beautiful views of the river, quiet, perfect for light sleepers. The room is spacious, so is the bed. Good AC. Good WIFI. But what is really outstanding about this place is the people who run it. I have never seen such caring friendly loving people. I can say I missed them right after I left. They will go out of their way to ensure you are enjoying your days and have everything you need. Book here and have some days to spare. You might also end up staying longer!

    All we wanted and more”

    All we wanted was a view of the river and the Rim Riverside not only provided this but so much more. The owner is a sprightly man in his 60s or 70s - excellent English and went over and beyond the call of service to provide us with so much help - providing advice on eats, buses to Bangkok, and more. The amazing hospitality of this place is evident in the number of strays that have made this place their home - two beautiful dogs and the most affectionate four-month old kitten you will ever meet. Nong Khai was one of our best trips ever, and The Rim was one of the reasons why.
