We stayed here for 4 nights, pre-booked based on reviews from tripadvisor. The guesthouse was clean, and nicely located (but there are >10 other guesthouses in that area)
we didnt get a room as shown in the pictures by other visitors. Our twin room has white walls and dim lights and no wardrobe/desk etc, aside from a TV (so no place to hang yr clothes etc). Also, while Jimmy, the owner, has good english, the day-time reception speaks very basic english. For two times, he even just cut off my line when I asked him questions he does not seem to know the ans. Find that a bit strange...
So I think its a okay place to stay in for a night or two, but I probably wont come back
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Apple Guest House offers quaint, personalized and friendly 10 room accommodation in the heart of this unique UNESCO heritage city, just behind the main tourist street and two doors from the mighty Mekong River and its varied restaurants for all budgets. A short walk will get you to the major attractions; temples, restaurants, tourist information, tours, and morning and night markets are just around the corner. Rooms are spotlessly maintained; many in teak, which is the traditional Lao style. All have air conditioning, fan, free Wifi, LED TV with CNN, BBC, HBO and the Australian network. The two superior rooms each have their own private balconies overlooking the quiet streetscape. One superior double room has a fantastic brand new private bamboo porch creating a stylish romantic atmosphere for people like "YOU". Our family rooms are very spacious. And the customer service by Lao owner Jimmy (a former Buddhist monk and who has lived with his Australian family for 12 years) and his beautiful wife "Nou", is truly exceptional. They both speak excellent English, have good local knowledge of the city and countryside and are very helpful with Tuk Tuk, travel and tour bookings. The common balcony upstairs overlooks the alleyway’s activities, where you can sit and enjoy free tea, coffee, cool water and magazines, and is a popular place for people using the free WiFi. Nou and Jimmy invite you to come and experience our warm hospitality. ... more less
