As others have said, there's not a lot to like about Phonsavan. If it were possible to avoid the city to visit the Plain of Jars, I doubt anyone would want to spend the night here, let alone two. The Maly Hotel reflects the town. Its old and tired. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed during our 2-night stay for "renovations",...

There's not a lot to like about Phonsavan. Destroyed by US bombing then rebuilt by the Soviets in the mid 70s it is dreary, utilitarian and uninspiring. If it were possible to avoid the city to visit the Plain of Jars I'd recommend you do that. And so Maly Hotel suffers from its town. Its old and tired. The owner...

We stayed for two nights in Jan 2016. A bit away from city centre, it is a small hotel. We booked a triple room which was spacious and clean. Reverse cycle airconditioning worked fine. Food is good though a bit on bland side for my liking but may suit westerners. Service can be hit and miss due to language barrier...

This hotel is right on a main road so at first blush I was not inspired. Then you go inside to reception. An old wooden interior reminds you of ski lodge. At night we sat by the fire. The restaurant served good food. The place appears to be run by a mother and two other young ladies. Rooms are of...

I stayed 4 nights and it was ok. Room is small and old but cute--kind of like an old victorian room. Could use some upgrades in the bathroom. Bring your own bathroom supplies. Yes, they have a hair dryer. No insulations so you will hear everything coming from outside including cars/ scooters/ motorcycles. Hotel is right off a busy street....

Stayed here with my mother for a couple of nights. The staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpful and the hotel itself was great. Really nice views of surrounds and the rooms were extremely clean and charming. Its a short walk from the centre of town but the walk itself is pleasant with fields and friendly locals. Certainly preferred...

The gentle decay of this quirky little hotel was tolerable because the rooms were clean, the Internet worked and the staff were friendly enough. The 15 minute walk into town was a bit of a annoying. Talking to others in town, apparently the guest houses are no so good either.

The hotel is a bit outside of the "city center". There is lots of decoration which can make it a bit surprising at first sight but rooms are quite big. In ours on the ground floor the bathrooms really showed their age. The owner speaks really good English and is really helpful. The tours that she sells are however REALLY...

Although being somewhat dark (old Laotian style), the rooms are clean and well equipped, and we found the staff friendly and anxious to please. Very good English was spoken by the owner and her daughter, so there were no communication problems on our visit. Breakfast was basically what we wanted - fresh fruits, omelettes and good Lao coffee. Like another...

It is old Lao style hotel located a little out of town (20 min walk). It has all the comforts that one need but it is the staff that brings this place to life. The owner of the hotel was one of the first to try and open Phonsavan (the plain of jars) to tourists, his family now maintains the...
