Ideal location, quality rooms
410 Rimkhong Rd (on the riverside promenade), Nong Khai T: (081) 873 0636, (086) 458 7236
Our favourite of the few guesthouses located right on the riverside promenade, Baan Mae Rim Nam makes up for its lack of character with solid accommodation, good-natured staff and fabulous views.
Painted mint green on the outside, the modern two-storey building has cool, airy and spacious rooms that all come with TV, fridge, desk, hot water in clean ensuite bathrooms and abstract art that continues with the pastel theme. Our only gripe is that beds are a little springy. The cheapest rooms represent good value, though we're not quite sure if the river views and slightly more space in the superior editions warrant a 300 baht price jump. This is especially true when you consider the large terraces that are perched directly over the promenade and shared among all guests.
