Nothing bad to say about the Legend. Had a wonderful stay. They really shouldn't charge for shuttle to the night market but at least they have a shuttle. Very nice room,good breakfast and beautiful grounds.

I spent just one night here en-route to the ( excellent ) Luangsay Mekong cruise from Houisay, Laos. I wish I could have stayed longer. Quiet, riverside location, friendly and helpful, short tuktuk ride into town, good restaurant and very generous breakfast. The property is extensive, however, and there are a lot of rooms scattered around the spacious grounds, so...

However, we stayed one night and it was freeeeeeeeeeezing.........we are from UK, so can tolerate the cold, but this was beyond anything you would expect.
