“Not worth the cost”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Not sure where the photos for this hotel come from, but they are not from the hotel. Phoufa is in a shocking state. 200,000 kip per night for a double room, broken toilet, broken shower, no towels. Of course Northern Laos is not where one would expect comfort, however at 200,000 kip one would expect basic ammenities. Best to stay anywhere else since the standard in Phongsali is generally low, however Phoufa is charging up market rates for rock bottom standard. The walls have a thick layer of mould growing in the bedroom area.

Room Tip: Don't stay here would be the best option.

At first glance it seemed like the best of the mediocre options in Phongsaly. The closer we looked the more dirt we found and the typically-Lao hard mattresses in our room were particularly dirty. After discovering the western style toilet was missing a seat and did not work we asked the staff for help. The word "falang" was exchanged several times between the two men on duty and then finally the one who attempted to help us eventually started yelling at us (no kidding). Following that we left and returned to the guesthouse where we had spent the prior evening.

Beyond the appalling service this hotel is rather far from the centre of town requiring a longer walk for food and transport and an uphill walk on the way back to the hotel. It took us about 10 minutes either way.

Room Tip: The only difference we could discern between the VIP rooms (200,000K) and the regular rooms (100,000...
