Phouphadeng Hotel is located on a hilltop about Phonsavan, so it is a bit out of the way. The accomodations are cabins with a main lodge where the restaurant and bar are located. The accomodations are a bit spartan but have a certain rustic appeal. The cabins are heated by fireplace and the hotel staff make certain that you have... More

We were very anxious what to find after reading these reviews, but pleasantly surprised after our visit. New heating system for the shower was installed, repairs were made. Tremendous view from the cabin and restaurant (valley and city). Big and private cabin which was clean (but could use a spring clean). The entire complex could do with a renovation (dont... More

We weren't expecting much as the reviews were terrible. The staff were very helpful and obviously trying to cope with no resources. Was once a little haven after a hard day at the plain of jars, you can tell but the owner's son has let it fall into disrepair and neglect. The stairs were rotten in cabin one, cabin five... More

Yes, the reviews are accurate but you know what you are getting before you arrive. Our view was lovely but during the night all you can hear are dogs barking. Dinner was poor but we were warned by reading the reviews, you have to try it to believe it. However, the hotel redeemed itself after I had an unfortunate fall... More

I traveled to Phonsavan, Xieng Khoang with my friends in May this year and stayed here for only one night. I was impressed by the nice cottages on the hill and from here you can have an overview of Xieng Khoang city. However there is a little issue here about the lack of water. In the evening, when my friend... More

I traveled in a group and came to Auberge Phouphadeng in late afternoon. The first sight at this hotel took our hope that finally, we would have an relaxable night in really nice cottages. Actually, don't let the outside performance of the cottages fool you. I had only 1 hour to take shower and refresh before the night activities, but... More

We stayed here for a single night on 17th March, and have to agree with most of what's been said before. The condition of the rooms is pretty un-cared for, with gaps in the walls where the timbers have come apart. We had to order dinner when we arrived at 4pm so that the ingredients could be sourced from the... More

Great views and I thought the place was very quaint and I was happy to stay for a couple of days - if only because the alternatives are so limited. Having said that, comfortable beds, fabulous views and hot water (albeit slightly idiosyncratic and probably dangerous) made for a good stay for me.

If you are travelling to see the Plain of Jars take your sense of humour with you. The hotel selection is very limited, indeed this is not a popular tourist destination. Other reviews of the hotel tell the sad story of the conditions. We felt we were going to fall through the floor boards when we walked on them. We... More

The hotel was terrible! no wi-fi in the room, hot shower is controlled by LPG ( and you can see the tank outside) too far from the city centre. Lucky we only stay one night here otherwise I'll get crazy! Not very good value for money, you pay 69 USD in Luang Prabang or Vientiane and you get better hotel... More
