I spent three nights at this guesthouse. There are many positive aspects I can highlight: I was lucky enough to get a room with a view of the Mekong river, and the balcony is lovely. The staff are very kind and friendly. You can drop your laundry off with them and within <24 hours, it comes back clean and neatly folded for 10,000 Kip/kilo (~$1.20). Breakfast is served outdoors on the patio, also overlooking the Mekong. Wifi is available.
My main source of dissatisfaction is the paper-thin walls. I could hear the person in the room NEXT to mine snoring. Loudly. So much so, that I had to wear earplugs. The other drawback is that even for a three-night stay, they never came once to make the bed or replace the towels.
Overall, I still enjoyed my stay but the drawbacks are worth highlighting.
