Not bad, but overpriced
What we say:
There's nothing wrong with the rooms at the concrete multistorey monolith that is Thaveesinh. It's just that they're a bit bland for the price and the bed coverings are of the same quality as the cheaper places in town – gaudy and cheap. Rooms have standard Lao beds with poor quality sheets, old TVs, hot water bathrooms that could do with more light and some have air-con. Free WiFi is also available, but as with most places in town, it's patchy in the rooms. If the rooms were 20,000 kip cheaper, we'd recommend this alongside the likes of BAP and Friendship, but at these rates it's slightly overpriced. One bonus is that it is located directly opposite the Gibbon Experience office.

nice place for one night
We stayed there on New Years Eve and had a nice, although small room with private bathroom and a/c. The terrace on the roof was perfect for seeing the firework on the thai side of the Mekong (on the 364 other days, it's perfect for watching the stars!). Room and bathroom were clean enough to feel comfortable there.

More expensive now
I stayed here for one nigh and paid 300 Baht for a double room with fan. There were lots of mosquitos and no net, which was really frustrating. Also the first room they gave me had not been made up, and it looked really grotty, especially the bathroom. Maybe the air-con rooms re better.

Comfortable room,good for a night
At 400B for air-con,hot water,fridge and cable TV,this was pretty good value,especially in a quiet town like Huay Xai.Recommended before/after an uncomfortable river trip.Love the balcony as well.
