Royal Mekong Nongkhai Hotel, We are one of the best choices you when you visit Nong Khai Province. With location next Mekong River and near Thai-Lao Frindship Bridge. The hotel building have been designed, not only, to maximize guest comfort, but at the same time, take full advantage of the extraordinarily unspoiled nature. All guest-rooms have the view of the endless Mekong River and the Lao's lush landscape.
The Royal Mekong, Nongkhai hotel is 9 storey with 198 key bases, is located at Nongkhai province which is the longest province in Thailand and at the top of the North-East of Thailand, adjacent to the Mekong River. She is just 25 Km. from Vientiane (The Capital of Laos PDR). She is also adjacent to the Friend-ship bridge (Thai-Laos PDR bridge, The only bridge between Thailand and Laos PDR.
This hotel claims to comply with ISO 9001 but how it keeps that status is beyond me. Our room was in need of redecoration at least five years ago. The carpet was stained and dirty. The TV was probably first generation colour - ours was heavily tinged with red and there was very little choice. Internet access was WiFi only and not fast. There was no PC in the lobby area. The location is perfect for the Friendship Bridge to Laos but a long way from anything else so if all you want is a visa/renewal that s it. I think it s time for the old girl to abdicate!
We booked for three nights but could only bear to stay for one and checked out late on the second day after we undertook a second trawl on the internet (a great way to spend time on what we thought was a well planned holiday!) I complained about the hotel to sawadee but without asking for a refund. Their response to my email was prompt and fair. They gave me an unconditional refund (i.e. I was not told I had to take a voucher) for the two lost nights less a nomnal admin fee. I thought that was good customer service and it s just a shame the hotel let them down.
awful breakfast, hot juice, cold eggs and tasteless rice. lack lustre staff. Not expensive but still disapointing.
good location..staff very good but talk little english!!!room clean and big...
The hotel is nice and good value for the money, but the interior and rooms needs urgently renovations. There is is strange smell in the hotel and in the lift they tried to solve this with some herbs on the floor in the lift. Carpets looks dirty and I guess the smell is from that. The cleaning staff did it s best, no complaint about them. The breakfast was just ok, but if you wanted a little late breakfast, they was run out of toast and anything you wanted on that toast. I guess they struggle economicly. The stay was ok, but my next visit in Nong Khai in april 2011, I will be looking for another hotel.
Booking service is good and easy.
Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Left after 1 night even though paid 2 nights. Room wall, bed cover filthy. Dangerous wiring on bed lamps. Cold water. A/C not cool. Large rips in carpet. Noise in next room all night, hotel staff not help me, only offer to change room at 2am! I have photo of all faults. Will report to all travel sites such as tripadvisor etc. I mentioned all problem to staff & they not care or ask why I go to other hotel. Again, worst hotel I have ever stayed in my entire life!! Better hotels for 500B.
No problem with websawadee
Breakfast was so good.
Old hotel with pool. A bit overpriced for what it is, but the only hotel around with a pool, which was a bit murky. Not really a bad hotel but you will feel like a ghost there, syince only about 6 rooms out of 200 are occupied... service is as slow as in Laos if any... One funny thing at this hotel is that they don t call you when its time to check out, so sleep until 3 P.M :)Old and broken furniture will remain at the poolside probably forever as well as rubbish on the parking lot left by customers a year ago.... booking on RES24asia.com grat as usual.
RES24ASIA.COM great as usual. Will book with them every time
Location is not good if you want to be in Nong Khai and have no personal transport. They will call a tuk tuk but will cost you between 80 and 100 baht per time there and back.Rooms need renovation, fungus on my shower curtain, hot tap on sink would not turn on, phone wire connection was taped into wall with masking tape and did not work properly. I checked out early but the terms of the booking service are no refund. I did not complain to hotel staff because their English is not good enough for this. (This is a not a criticism of staff. this is NorthEast Thailand and English is very rarely spoken_
We will never choose Royal Mekong Nongkhai Hotel again. The only positive was the big rooms and the vue to Mekong - everything else is negative. The hotel wasn t kept in repair and anywhere was very dirty and not cleaned. The staff wasn t helpful - was not able to help to get a taxi to airport - and seemed not to care.
The bookong service worked perfect and effective.
Excellent hotel. Good rooms and reception. A bit far away from the town Nongkhai; you need transport. We had a good 2 days stay.
It is the worst hotel we have ever visitted. The hotel is old, with old furniture in their old rooms. Actually a chair broke down while we were staying in that hotel, and suddenly dangerous nails were sticking out of the chair. The staff at the breakfast dont pay any attention to the things which are missing. So if there is no toast, jam, butter, you name it, then tell it to the staff yourself, because they wont see it. The hotel also advertise with 2 hours of thai-massage in your room for only 300baht. But after only 1 hour of poor and very soft thai-massage, the 2 massage-ladies clamed to be finished! Not only did they cheat about the lenght of the massage, they also had the nerve to ask for tip!!! We made a complaint at the reception, but they didn´t care. Their only comment was: Well, sometimes they make a quick massage! Dont ever visit that hotel!
As always, booking through the R24 reservation system is okay. But in case of changes (if you want to change the dates of reservation), the system is much to slow.
Clearly in need of modernisation & efficient management. Bedroom O.K. but aircon noisy and barely functioned. Bathroom had more than its fair share of ants, which presumably were also in the bedroom. Dining room a disaster as some dishes on the standard menu were not available and it took the staff nearly 20 minutes to inform us. Breakfasts unappetising and stone cold. Service some of the worst we have come across in Thailand.Large open car park which could present security problem as nobody manned the security hut at the entrance. I understand this used to be a Holiday Inn - I wish they would take it back as the present management (or lack of it) ruins what could be an excellent hotel due to its situation on the Mekong. Needless to say, we shall not return.
Good, as I tried to book through Asia Rooms who stated that rooms were unavailable.
