The title says it all! We stayed in one of the huts and were woken in the night by a rat touching my boyfriends hand. Resulted in us having a terrible nights sleep. Having now read previous reviews it seems the owners are aware of this problem and decided not to do anything about it. There were also no tours... More

I stayed here two nights and it was fine. The room was 50,000 kip and I found out another girl was charged 40,000 kip. So BARGAIN when you get there! The room is alright -- plywood ceiling, hard bed, drippy bathroom. There's wi-fi at least and the owner and his friends are friendly. They light a fire at night and... More

60,000 kip a night for a damp-smelling, mosquito infested, cockroach crawling, and dark room. The manager, Veo, is friendly and helpful. He does tours of the Plain of Jars as well. He can speak relatively good English and likes to have a chat over some beers by the fire in the lobby/hut. His kids are cute too. Hard to get... More

For 60,000 a night, the room itself was acceptable. Very basic, a little musty, and an open window (no glass, just a plastic sheet with gaps and curtains- cold!) We were in the new block, and did not encounter any rats. A couple we met, who had been staying there too, woke up with a rat on their bed, however.... More

I turned up at this guesthouse as I was advised that Mr Keo could organise trips of the plain of jars unfortunately when I arrived I was not part of a group so I managed to organise a tour with one of the local agents. The accomodation is pretty basic which I expected except that there were rats in the... More

Although we had made a reservation in advance and were told that we would be picked up at the busstation, no one did welcome us there when we arrived or did know anything about our coming and reservation. This wasnt a big deal as there were enough free rooms left. We got two of the rooms in the long house,... More

We decided to choose Kong Keo Guesthouse from the many many options available in Phonsavanh after reading the numerous reviews about Mr Keo's excellent hospitality. Unfortunately we experienced none of the positive elements mentioned in previous reviews. When we arrived we were shown to our rooms by Mr Keo; the rooms themselves whilst basic, were relatively comfortable and the showers... More

Rustic bungalows are comfortable enough. The real highlight is evenings around Mr. kong's campfire. Plug in your iPod -- Bob Dylan is always welcome. Mr kong is a wonderful host. He and his associate Mr Well run tours in the area. The tours are fun and reasonably priced. Phonsavan was surprisingly chilly. The bonfire is a godsend!!

Nice and quiet. near center of town and close to the nightly entertainment. The owner Mr Kong is a friendly, really nice guy. He also organizes trips to the jar sights. There is a fire to hang out at. The rooms are ok, we didn't have any insect or rat problems.

The owner, Mr Kong, ran a fantastic day trip out to the historic plain of jars and some of the fascinating 'secret war' sites which were informative, well organised and at times a lot of fun. In the evening he set out a delicious Laotian buffet, sat around the fire with us drinking beer Lao, laughing and telling stories as... More
