“Quiet place to stay after your long riverboat ride!”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

My husband and I moved to this hotel after staying a little down the road and sharing our room with a mouse.

The room that we stayed in for three nights was on the first floor, it included air conditioning, fan, WiFi and glass doors opening out onto a small balcony facing the interior courtyard.

The room featured, wooden floorboards, an open closet with plenty of hanging space, a comfortable bed, clean bathroom (with shower curtain!) and a small writing desk. Amenities for the guests include, drinking water and coffee and tea making facilities. ($20 USD per night)

The owner also showed us the newly refurbished rooms in the back of the property which have updated bathrooms, fridge and a television. ($30 USD per night)

The Phounsab Guesthouse is a one minute walk to the night markets, bars, restaurants and Phu Si hill but is super quiet in the evenings. The doors of the guesthouse are closed at 11pm or so with a security guard remaining at the entrance.
