Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Huay Xai has a good range of accommodation from cheap guesthouses through to quite comfortable midrange small hotels. Some of them have Thai mobile numbers so calling ahead from Thailand is an option. The cheapies fill up fast. A few of the guesthouses overlook the Mekong River -- recommended!
