The only good thing about this hotel is the view. The rooms are in semidetached cottages. There are big gaps in the window and door frames and since there are big windows on both sides of the room, there is a strong draft. While we were there night temperatures were around +3C and it was very windy. The heating (Mitsubishi air pumps) worked only sporadically and we were freezing cold in spite of double extra blankets. With the exception of the sheets and the bathroom the place was filthy, the windows looked as if they hadn't been washed since the place was built some seven years ago. There was supposed to be a restaurant, but there was no staff and therefore nothing to be had. The little town with a few simple decent restaurant was quite a hike down the hill. Breakfast consisted of instant coffee, bananas, fried eggs( done well ahead of time, a bun and some rice gruel. with the exception of one young woman who took care of breakfst, nobody spoke any English. The whole place feels totally neglected. There is some sort of slow wifi which works unreliably. Unless you are a backpacker used to really roughing it - don't go there.…
Terrible place to stay althougha great view. Far too far out of town without your own transport. Our room was unclean, the bed as hard as a rock and the pillows so plump they were impossible to use. Mosquitoes in our room, dogs barking all night. Cutlery was not clean in the restaurant where we were supposed to have breakfast. Breakfast was not acceptable for a ‘deluxe hotel’. We left after one night.
The hotel is on the site of the old runway. There is a vibrant market and food stalls nearby. There is a nightclub but I didn't go there and it's far enough away from the hotel not to be a nuisance. I had breakfast by prior arrangement at the Runway Restaurant which was freshly prepared for me each morning. The staff were friendly and eager to please. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I thought it was reasonably priced.
If you're coming to Phonsavan and if you're willing to make some compromises, you can have a good time at the Phouviengkham hotel. I have visited the town four times and checked out 2-3 hotels at every occasion, and in my opinion, this place is the best (maybe with the exception of the other hillside resort, but I have not visited that one yet, and it is even farther out of town). + enjoy the stunning view from your own spacious terrace + spacious room including two king size beds, which might not be up to international standards, but which are definitely at the upper end of everything I have experienced in Laos so far + friendly and helpful staff: offering shuttle services for free to town and airport anytime we asked - the bathroom needs some renovations, shower door missing, etc - no mini bar (but two small water bottles provided for free) - restaurant is open only for breakfast +/- breakfast is a rather limited event, as expected: fresh eggs and baguette, fruits, butter and jam, coffee and tea…
Not sure what's going on here, but it's prob not completely kosher! Stayed here one night and turned up unannounced. No other guests, lobby a mess, 8 blokes drinking Johnny Walker Blue label. Asked for a room and rate. Much confusion and shown a room that was huge with mismatched bedding, creaky floors and filthy bathroom. Quite frankly it was bloody creepy!
