What we say: 3 stars

We're really sad to see Arimid decline as it has done in recent times from one of the better options in town to one of the poorer. The painted rattan bungalows located towards the slow boat dock are as basic as ever, but they are starting to look a bit unloved with some basic maintenance issues starting to appear. The feel of the rooms here is unique for Huay Xai and mixes things up nicely compared to the concrete monoliths closer to the centre of town. Each wooden-floored room here comes with a spring bed and a tiny hot water bathroom with a sink. It's not a bad spot to relax in after the slow boat journey – it's just that it doesn't offer the same value as it once did. Perhaps worth a look anyway.
