The large rooms in the main house at Gin’s have desks and fireplaces, but I doubt it ever gets cold enough. Gin’s is just over a kilometre from town so we imagined that the Mekong River, just across the road, would be the only sound at night. Unfortunately, it’s surrounded by karaoke bars, where clients wail into the night.
Cost: 300 baht for a ground floor double with en suite bathroom and fan; 200 baht for a bungalow.
Finding it: Just over a kilometre north of the town centre, near the Mekong River, on 71 Mu 8. (See map below.)
