Nong Soda Guesthouse

Our rating:
3 stars, based on 1 expert review

The long-running Nong Soda, also known as the Mekong Riverside restaurant, is a series of large and somewhat goofy lime-yellow concrete buildings by the river and just past the Thai consulate at the north of town.

The location is a tad out of the way but not too far, especially if you rent a bicycle from the guesthouse for 10,000 kip per day. Rooms could use a good coat of paint and bathrooms are slightly grotty, but all are equipped with air-con, hot water, TVs and fridges. There's no WiFi to speak of, so that should keep the techies away. On the bright side, a large upstairs terrace is ideally suited to cold drinks and a sunset view, a restaurant serves basic Lao-Thai and Western fare and this is one of Savannakhet's only options if you want to be close to the river. Staff were friendly when we last visited but we've received reports of them being on the lazy side.
