We literally stumbled across this place after arriving from the airport and taking a short tuk tuk ride into town. We looked at several guesthouses along the river and this was the place we decided to stay - it was so nice we stayed 5 nights instead if 3!
As it was low season in July we got an amazing room rate of 130,000 dong a night for one of the standard sized double rooms. The owner showed me the huge double room facing the river but wanted 200,000 dong for that one. Fantastic value as no one else was staying there - online it was $30 (peak season price) per room so we got a great 'walk in' rate.
The rooms are tastefully decorated, aircon works well there's a fan as well and a TV. Shower in the wet room worked well and had lots of hot water. Room was cleaned everyday and towels and bedding changed every other day. There was free tea/coffee and water available. The owner was friendly (family run joint) and pointed us to where the laundry service was round the corner (only 8,000 per kg) and where to rent bikes (opposite there is a bunch of mountain bikes which I strongly suggest you get if you plan to explore further than just the tourist street as the roads turn into dirt tracks and are very rocky). The agent round the corner also books tours e.g. Kuangsi waterfalls they were very good also were the cheapest for the VIP bus to Vang Vieng & Vientiane. Recommend them!
There's a fantastic restaurant opposite the guesthouse called Lampache. We ate at a lot of places but Lampache was by far the best, good value not expensive but good portions of excellent Lao/Thai and western cuisine. The staff are also really lovely.
Really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse, easily walkable to all points of interest in town.
