“Walked for 2 hours and this was the best price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Very busy week when I was there. Many places were full. Lucky to find a room here. The price was great, room was clean, WIFI strong, and good free breakfast. Will stay there again if I ever have the need to go back to Vientiane.

Room Tip: the lower the floor the better the water pressure but top floor was ok.

When i arrive in Vientaine, all the hotels were full. So, I had no other option but to stay in Mixok. They gave me a room on the 5th floor and the hotel do not have a lift. SO every time I had to go out and come back, it was a tough ask. The room was small and the surprise was when i went in the bathroom. The bathroom was bigger than the main bed room, Hats off to the engineer, Later that day, I went in search of another room and check out the next day.

Stayed at the Mixok Inn, not guesthouse. Paid 150,000 kip a night for a double. This seemed to be a good rate compared to the other guesthouses we looked at in the area.

Pros:
Room was clean.
A/C was included in the price.
Wifi worked well and wasn't turned off at night
Friendly staff at front desk.
Breakfast included. Have a choice of pancakces (2) or eggs & a baguette.

Cons:
Tons and tons of mosquitos in our room and no mosquito net.
Could feel springs in the mattress, not the best nights sleep.

Room Tip: No lift, so if you don't want to walk up 4 or 5 flights of stairs, ask for a room on the 2nd or...

I am currently sat waiting for a refund from this guesthouse. We found bed bugs in our room and showed proof to the guy at the desk, who just told me that 'its ok' repeatedly. After showing him pictures of bed bugs online and the horrible bites they can inflict, he informed me that they don't bite you, and he would not give me a refund nor would his manager. He said that all rooms are full so we can't move. Cannot believe this blatant denial when I have two bugs on a piece of paper and can show him many more between bed and head board. Avoid here at all costs.

We came in after a research of differrent gusthouses. We saw a room in the third floor and it smelled like sleeping in an ashtray. We left to see some other rooms around. Since everything else was taken we had no choise but to come back. When we came back 10 minuts later the price sudenlly jumped higher. When i asked why the staff Member mumbled somthing about sombody booking the room...lao people are bad liers. I was so upset i left Right away angry. I was lucky enough to find a diffrent gusthouse that was much more moddest than i intended but at least the people are honest and straightforward. Watch out.
