The room was dreadful the cabinet that the tv was on was ready to collapse. The bathroom if you could call it that was a shower falling away from the wall the mirror had lost its... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was the first hotel we saw after making the Mekong River crossing from Thailand. The first room we were shown was small and dark and we asked for a look at a better room. We were taken to the top floor to a large room next to a shared deck with a great... More

We then managed to haggle the price down to 120,000KIP, (we only paid 100,000KIP after some confusion with the change!) for a double room with air... More

I stayed at the Gateway right on the corner of the walk up from... More

They also have cheaper rooms for about 60 000 kip but we didnt see them. Pros: - wifi in the room that worked well - Free... More
