This is the coolest, nicest, best value spot we stayed in Laos. We got a great private bungalow by the pool for a great price and really, really enjoyed it. The manager told us after this month it was being closed and renovated, so hopefully they're able to maintain the charm because it was really fantastic. I'd definitely recommend this... More

Great value with a view of the river rather than the town. Clean and comfortable room. The inclusive breakfast of bacon and eggs was also very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We also did our laundry here - as cheap as it is anywhere else with door to door service and clothes washed and folded to a high... More

I liked this hotel, but I can't give it a higher rating. The positives. Good location, right on the river. Cute room whose downsides become more obvious the longer one stays. Breakfast is good,served at a table overlooking the river. The room itself is ok. Most have small balconies where one can pass the time. They are, however, dark. The... More

This place is really rundown & is in real need for major renovations & even rebuilding. There 13 attap thatched villas in this property. Rooms are very dim. This can be easily ratified by just changing to higher wattage bulbs. The air-conditioner control are fixed high on the wall where it is difficult to read the controls. The bathroom is... More

A charming hotel with traditional bungalows. Breakfast by the river with great service and ad lib coffee and fruit juice. Although very centrally located, once through the gate you leave all the noise and bustle behind and can really relax. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. (Some minor faults need attention - for example the rails on... More

We spent a couple of nights here as a treat for valentines day. The rooms are pricey but in my eyes it was worth it. The room was gorgeous, nice and spacious with a bath! We had a lovely view of the river and we were right next to the pool. We ate here for breakfast and dinner, on each... More

To be fair we arrived a bit late and having walked the strip, this was the last one and we were too tired to haul our stuff back. Top end price for backpackers, but it was an ok experience, get the pool fixed guys!!

Thatched bungalows were quite charming. All rooms have a river view. Comfortable bed. Appreciated the robes. Good breakfast riverside. Be sure to get, at some point, the pineapple mint shake. Delicious and refreshing. Small pool which apparently was closed for the season. Saturday night music from bar upriver on the other side came over but it wasn't objectionable. Sunday night,... More
