Both appeal to me for different reasons, although I'm leaning toward the Villa Ban Lakkham as a slightly "classier" looking place. My husband and I are going to LP for 3 nights (I know, not enough) next February, and I'm trying to zero in on the hotels now. They are both within my budget, although Sayo River is less expensive, even for the best room.
In order of priorities:
-Location (downtown, near alms ceremony)
-Balcony with good view of river
-comfortable, bright room
-friendly, helpful service
-wifi, preferably in the room
-Breakfast - basic is fine, but coffee is essential
Any feedback on these places or any additional recommendations in the $50- $90 range for a double in a good location would be greatly appreciated. I saw several places that look lovely but were slightly out of the downtown area; in the short time we'll be there, I would prefer to be close in.
Thank you for your help!
