We stayed a few days in this hotel and on our last day 80 dollars disappeard from our room. The attempt to find a solution with the owner of this place failed. He would not be interested in this situation and rather accuse us of being liars. I would not recommend anyone to stay here considering that there many other places to stay in town!

***Warning*** I stayed in this guesthouse for 4 nights. I always took my stuff (money, passport, credit card) with me but on my last day I hid it in a bag in a gopro case and when I came back i packed my stuff and recognised that my money is missing. We went down to the owner and he did not care about it and just said we can say anything but he doesn't believe us because we are just customers. I would not recommend staying there if you want to keep all your stuff - there are better guesthouses in this town!

I stayed here for a couple of days and between the 6 a.m. construction, the "screaming maids" (usually starting around 7 a.m.) and the obnoxious tourist (usually starting around 6 a.m. [or so]); I never could get a good nights sleep. This is a very noisy place. The rooms are "OK" (hot water is "hit and miss"); the staff is "OK" (though none of them speak English). They do have some decent food; however they just raised their prices by 50% across the board! The owner has motorbikes and bicycles for rent at same price as everybody in town; but he lets you keep them for 24 hours (unlike other shops in town). I want to advise everybody that I had a very expensive ($125) "Case" knife stolen from my room during my visit! So be careful of your valuables! Although this hotel (guest house) is in the heart of the town, there are several other choices in town that would probably serve you better.

The room was good for the price we paid (60.000kip for a twin room) but I would never recomment this place to anybody. In our second day in the town, we left early to go to the Plain of Jars. Just before, I decided I did not want to bring all the money with me so I left some in my backpack. By mistake I did not put them in the locked pocket. When we came back, we found a cleaning glove outside of the room and the money was gone. i went to ask to the reception and the owner started to yell me that nobody went to the room, that was my fault because I left money AND he pulled my arm to a random room to show me a paper with the "hotel rules". He never stopped yell me that "happens all the time" (not a good sign tho). I knew I was not going to get anyhing but I past through all the hassle to make a police report (I had to go to the office three times, deal with officers who did not understand English, and a lot more...). When I went back to the hotel, the owner pulled my arm again and tried to push me inside of my room. I know It was not right, but I slapped him and he tried to answer back. I could have avoid the all situation putting my money with the lock, but I do not think that dealing with guys like that is the kind of holidays that anybody is looking for.

Thought we would check this place in the heart of the tourist part of town as it is a hotel. At a price of 100000 kip we did expect much and it was ok for the price. It was a decent sized room with a large but rock hard bed, air con that didn't want to be adjusted, a Lao style bathroom with hot water and some English channels. Two negatives were the poor Wifi and the piece of thread they called towels. We stayed the night and have since moved across the road to the appropriately named Nice Guesthouse and are much happier

Phonsavan has limited choices. I travelled here with Lao work colleagues and they think, value for money, it's one of only two places to stay in this town. The rooms are large, clean and have the basic necessities. The bed is perhaps the hardest I have experienced in all of SE Asia's hard beds! It honestly feels like it's made of rock - certainly harder than the wooden planks I slept on, sans mattress, in PNG. Thank goodness the pillow was ok. The shower is, if you wait long enough, hot and good, but don't be perturbed if it takes quite a few minutes (literally). The lovely couple who 'manage' this hotel have very little English and are not particularly helpful, but if you persevere and smile a lot, they try to assist, e.g. there was a doona on the bed covered in a nylon slip - either way it was hot and uncomfortable. After several requests for a sheet and no response at all, he finally said "don't have sheet'. I smiled/laughed and said "Yes, you have sheet". Then he said "I don't know sheet. Come." He then led me to the nearest empty room and I showed him. Then off we headed to the storage room and we both fossicked through the large basket of clean linen to find what was needed, both smiling and laughing. In summary, very very basic but reasonable both in attitude and weight on the pocket.

Staff friendly, room reasonably clean, free coffee in the morning in the lobby. They didn't give us fresh water every day, and didn't clean the room on our last day. We were there for 4 days as one of got sick. The rate was pretty good. There was cable TV, Fox movies and free WIFI. Easy to find and across the road are eating places including Crater's Cafe. Rooms are large, beds are HARD. Our room was noisy as we were on the ground floor and everyone had to go past our room to get to theirs and when buses pull up late at night and leave early in the morning...........it's noisy.

There are a number of different rooms available but I didn't see anything other than a twin. They have Wifi in the lobby but I couldn't get it in our room. We paid 60,000kip per night and stayed for 2. It is in a great location for eating and organising your trip and is about 1km from the bus station (it took us about 15mins to walk it but you can just get a tuk tuk for 5,000 pp) It had a hot shower but the water was a patheticly warm dribble at best. It is also worth mentioning that Phonsavan is a dust town in general and this does reflect on the linen by leaving what appears to be a slightly orange tinge to pretty much everything! It was also a little noisy in the corridor when people are coming and going which might have an effect on your sleep if you have a early night etc. Oh and the staff speak very little English.

Rooms and bathroom were large. Plenty of space for bags and it is possible to shower without getting toilet wet. But beds are rock hard and you can feel the springs. Also walls do not offer much insulation from noise outside. Paid 100k kip per night, you could probably find something better nearby.
