      A Simple Escape on the Mekong”

      We had a lovely time during our one night stay however would have gladly added another. Small 5 room boutique hotel with quite and simplistic touches. Absolutely loved the high ceilings on the top floor and the balcony with its deck chairs. If you'd prefer a fully indoor bathroom (some exposure through the roof) take one of the bottom room options. A nice getaway while away with the lovely family who lives and maintains it.

      Unique hotel and very friendly staff

      We really enjoy staying at Sofa Gallery Hotel. We booked a Garden view Room but we upgraded for the River Room for 400Bt. The room was very comfortable with a fantastic view of the river. The breakfast was great.We love the staffs here. When we left the hotel, We booked a car from the hotel to take us to Chiankhan, an old city about 250km north of Nongkhai. We stoped at several places along the way such as Sangkom, Park chom and Wat Him Mak Peng. The Meakhong river view along the road was very beautiful. The trip was great and we will definitely do it again.

      The staff and management, the facility and the general warm feel of the experience.

      occasionally in my travels i find things that make an entire journey worthwhile. the sofa gallery is such a place. i went up to nongkhai for other reasons, but will return for the chance to stay and experence this wonderful little place. nothing in the world suits everybodys taste entirely, but if you like comfort and calming ambience along with exemplary food and service this is the place. i found its location to be quite good for me, as i was driving a car. but i have no doubt the management can help out those on foot with getting around comfortably. their recomendations for places to visit was spot on for us! i am looking forward to bring family and guest to visit them again soon! thank you mr viset and max! you are first class! i am happy to have met you!

      Riverfront garden with koi pool. New hotel & clean.

      Great little hotel in NongKhai. We spotted it last time we were in the town but had already booked elsewhere. We were most happy for the peace and quiet of this hotel after the visa run to Laos. The garden and views of the river are beautiful and then we walked into town for a meal at a Vietnamese restaurant on the river which seemed popular with local residents. The staff were friendly and the fact that the hotel and all furnishings are new and clean (we’ve had some nightmares before in Nongkhai and Udon) we’ll try and stay here next time. We stayed in the garden room but next time would like to stay in the river front rooms because we saw they have balconies and bathrooms that look out onto the river. Really nice. Philippa

      Charming bed and breakfast on the Mekong River”

      Personalized service, small and secluded, nice view, quiet

      The Sofa Gallery hotel is similar to a bed and breakfast. Khun Viset has renovated an old house along the Mekong to accommodate guests. The hotel is on the outskirts of town on the bank of the Mekong River towards the Friendship Bridge to Laos. It is nice to be away from the seediness of the tourist part of town, Thaa Sadej, where there are numerous guesthouses but feels unsafe. The Sofa Gallery is in a safe, quiet location. Transportation is required to go into town, which can be called to pick up guests from the hotel. The hotel serves a local style breakfast with several items to choose from or one can sample all. There is no kitchen but a few dishes are available and there are a list of items the hotel staff will order for nearby restaurants. Free wifi but no television. The hotel is new, so still needs to work out some kinks.

      Hotel with the best feeling!”

      Location right on the Mekong River, gorgeous Thai gardens front and rear; friendly, helpful, genuine staff

      Walking into the Sofa Gallery is like walking into a small garden paradise. So peaceful. The rooms are also beautifully furnished with comfortable beds and a good functional bathroom. I stayed in a garden view room however was not really able to see the garden from the top floor. The Riverview rooms on the ground floor have a magnificent view of the back garden and the Mekong. These are well worth a few extra dollars. Relaxing in the back terrace style garden overlooking the Mekong at sunset, after dinner and for breakfast all give a sense of luxury. I arrived too late to order dinner however breakfast was simple but fresh and delicious Thai style. Other guests opted for a continental style breakfast. The staff were incredibly accommodating in everything from food choices to helping to resolve issues with foreign exchange. I highly recommend this hotel.

      Great view, excellent service”

      Very nice view of the river from the upstairs balconies, breakfast was also very good.

      Staying at Sofa Gallery is more like staying at someone's home than at a hotel. Very friendly, attentive staff. Rooms are a little small, but very, very clean. Also, perhaps because the rooms are a little small, the A.C. units in the rooms work very quickly. It's also only a short walk to two very nice restaurants on the Mekong. It's in a quiet location outside of town, but only a couple of minutes by Tuk Tuk to the center of town. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

      Beautiful boutique hotel”

      Private and quiet

      perfect for a romantic getaway, this tiny 5 room boutique hotel offers the best views of the mekong and wonderful service. sofa gallery is decorated tastefully for the artistic and rustic eye. it is so peaceful to sit in the garden at the back, or on the river side. the only downside is it's slightly out of town. so hire bikes/ scooter or tuk tuk to get around.

      Amost peaceful, lovely place to stay”

      garden and outside areas, ponds with fish and lotus blossoms

      The sofa gallery is quite unique, I feel it is a work in progress and will continue to blossom. The owner is very caring, and helpful. It is very artistic and peaceful, there are arrangements of fresh flowers everywhere and in our bedroom 3 arrangements. Our room was ground floor with a view of the Mekong river, just open the glass french doors and you are out in the paved area leading to the river. There is no television, we realized that to have had one in these surroundings would have ruined the ambience. About 600 metres towards town is a massage place which was excellent, we had oil massage. In all a great place to stay .

      Wonderful hotel in a quiet town”

      Very relaxing environment with a great view of the Mekong and wonderful staff

      I absolutely loved this place, but it's definitely not for everyone. I spent 2 nights there, on my way to Ventiane, just on the other side of the Frendship Bridge across the Mekong river. If you need a swimming pool, gym, or even wifi or a TV, then this is not the place for you (but then what are you doing in Nong Khai?). If on the other hand you want a relaxing place to spend a few days away from the city, enjoying the sunrise and sunset on the Mekong in a small hotel decorated with taste, then this is the place you have been looking for. The hotel is very small (maybe 5-6 rooms) with 4 rooms river side (the ones to get, in my opinion). It is an old habitation/trading building that belonged to the owner's grandparents and that has been converted into a hotel over the last 2 years. The two rooms on the top level of the hotel, river-side, have a huge balcony, of which the bathroom is a part. It's a strange setup at first, but really enjoyable (the balcony has a heavy leather curtain for privacy). I have read comments regarding the water in the shower not getting warm... Well, the shower and sink have no water temperature control, just debit control. You get whatever temperature comes out of the pipe, so you'll never get steaming hot water if that's your thing, but then it's really hot out there, and a refreshing shower is more what I needed. But still, "refreshing" is relative, it's 38° (100F) out there, and the water is never cool either. The breakfast is excellent. You get the choice between maybe 4-5 sets and you have to tell the day before at what time you plan to have breakfast so that the small staff (2 wonderful people, one lady and one man, the man can speak some English, the lady almost none). I had a great time at this hotel, and I only wish I had spent more time there, cutting on my time in Bangkok. If I return to Nong Khai (probably as part of a longer trip to Laos) I will definitely stay in this hotel again.

      Lovely little boutique hotel set on the river.”

      Great service, great food, good central location.

      My friend and I booked two nights at the sofa gallery hotel. Our host "Ty" was extremely welcoming and helpful. He was able to recommend places to eat, although I found the food at the hotel to be the best. Any request was catered for and the service from the staff was of a very high standard. At times they fussed over us a little to much, if you like that level of service you would be very satisfied. The hotel was in a good location, a short stroll into town and not far from the friendship bridge. We had no problem crossing the boarder here to Laos.

      Quaint and authentic Thai residence”

      The hotel is contemporary in appearance accessorised in tasteful Thai furnishings.

      The hotel is located close to the Meekong river in a peaceful and quiet end of town. The staff are very friendly and helpful which made us feel at home. It is a small hotel decorated in lovely Thai soft furnishings that complement the hotel's rustic feel and design beautifully. We were very comfortable and it felt more like a big home than a hotel. We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend it to anyone travelling around Nongkhai or into Laos.
