This hotel is on a very busy street and has no security at the front Reception to keep anyone off the street from walking in and using the elevator. Twice we had someone turning and pushing to get into our room, not acknowledging who they were.
It is in a good location for walking to restaurants, etc. And the breakfast is substantial.

I can only assume there are two hotels of this name in Phonsavan because my experience was far from that of other reviewers. For a start it is a longish walk from what passes for a centre in the town, where the three best (or least bad) restaurants are situated (Italian, US, Indian). Transport in the town is minimal. The hotel has a restaurant but it is open from 7 to 9 in the morning uniquely, for a breakfast aimed at the Chinese tour groups who make up most of the clientele. Power cuts both in individual rooms and more generally are common. No glasses, cups, tea , coffee, soap provided, though helpfully there was a kettle. Air conditioning only setting is cool (it can be cold at night). Staff affable but not hugely competent or English-speaking. No bar though beer available at reception.

The town has no 4* accommodation, so Favanhmai is probably the best 3* hotel in Phonsavan. Simple yet functional. Big spacious room. Surprisingly good breakfast. Fast and reliable internet. No swimming pool.

1. Location: Not near the main eateries and (few) attractions in town. But easily reached on foot in about 15 minutes' leisurely walk. Given there are not that many options, not really much to complain about here.

2. Rooms: Although the hotel is rather new, it does seem pretty dated in terms of furnishing. That said, rooms are clean and a/c and bathroom functions well. Beds are comfortable. However, you might be better off with your own toiletries.

Temperature drops a bit in these parts; bathroom has hot water, but - of no fault of the hotel - blackouts are frequent, which means there will be no hot water or wifi. Wash up as soon as you can once back in hotel.

3. Amenities: Breakfast is sufficient to get a filling start to the day. Wifi is iffy, but mostly ok. Not a pretty place, but definitely functional, given the choices available here.

4. Staff: Some difficulty in communicating in English, but nothing to complain about too.

Date of stay: December 2019

Room is clean and quiet. It is a few blocks from restaurant and bar locations. A/C works ok. Amenities are very minimal be sure to bring extra with you. Breakfast is basic and weighted towards oriental cliental.
