nice view from top level, quiet, clean. Water pressure good, hot water is hot, convenient table for work, wtite. with electric plug above it. a low table to put the baggage. not far from center. close to old airport. but beware the location on the tripadvisor map is incorrect
Recently new hotel behind the bus station/market. Great location, only three minute walk from bus. Back from the main road, so lovely and quiet. Rooms are big and clean. But a little spartan. Very echoing, could do with a rug and some wall hangings. This would help dampen the sound of other guests using the toilet! You can hear everything. Bathroom is big, but the shower and toilet are in the same corner, leaving you a very small area to have a shower. Bad design. Free filter water and tea/coffee in reception. Owner and staff very friendly and helpful.
At first the place seems a bit off the centre, but it is in fact (on foot) very close to everting, Mr. Souk, our tourguide to the Plains and other attractions, made our stay to a real memorable pleasure. His English is excellent, so rare still in Laos, and he will answer all your questions with a smile. Ask for Mr. Souk!!
I stayed for 3 nights and whilst the room was quite simple it was fine for what I needed and I slept well. The best thing was that the owner and staff were so friendly and helpful. The owner sent me a message the day before I came and throughout my stay with tips, information and offering to help. As a solo traveller it made me feel really welcome and reassured and he helped me with my bags on the last day and took me to the bus station and made sure I got the right bus. I met other travellers there which was nice and I enjoyed visiting the plain of jars and thermal pool. The guesthouse location is close enough to everything but it's down a quiet road and useful to bring a torch for the walk back in the evening. Melinda
Abay the owner was not there when we stayed but his communication was amazing on what’s ap. At one point we could not get the hot water to work but we just messaged him and he came back to us straight away and we got it working. I loved that a free pick up is included from the bus station. There is nothing better after a long bus journey. The guest house is in a great location close to everything you need but also very quiet. I also felt it was very good value. The complimentary tea and coffee is also a nice touch. We would definitely recommend a stay at this guest house. We originally only booked one night but stayed for two.
