Take a few days to relax in this fantastic resort, far from the noisy city centres. The pool was beautiful, very clean and the water temperature was so perfect to oblige you not to get out anymore! The pool side room is undoubtedly the best choice. A special thank to the hotel manager and to the staff, very helpful, attentive...

We stayed at this resort with three small girls. We had two pool access rooms. Rooms are spacious, clean and you con more or less jump directly in to the pool. The location is outside the center, but it is easy to get a taxi or tuk-tuk. The staff do not speak much English but they were nice and very...

We had a very nice and relaxing weekend stay at Budsabong recently - escaping from our city or residence in Laos. The (humongous) pool was such a nice luxury & it was very worthwhile getting a pool-side room from which we could just open our backdoor and jump in. The hotel staff were all very welcoming and helpful (helping us...

The second time to this tranquil hotel because of hospitable staff that helped suggesting sightseeing trips and also nice nearby dining places. They also greeted and made small talk, trying to be friendly with us. It's quite nice to make us feel like home. The hotel facilities are modern and good enough especially a huge bathroom and a beautiful swimming...

Inn the heat heat of the day it is difficult to leave the hotel when the pool is so convenient, ie right outside my hotel room door. I didnt expect much from a regional hotel but was comfortable during my short stay. Thankfully I was able to travel around with my own car as the hotel has no shuttle service....

Although we stay there in low season, it was strange that we were the only guests... Room and pool okay, but the balcony was very uncomfortable without any chair and a hard cot. Very far from the city center and no restaurant/shop nearby. I will not stay there again.

sums up the Budsabong Resort in Nong Khai.Whilst it is not located on the Riverside and some 5km from the City Centre,it more than compensates with its lovely rural position and good size swimming pool,a bonus for sure.
