We stayed for 3 nights and paid $28 for a double room with balcony and breakfast.
We arranged pick up from the bus station and we were charged a different price to what was quoted in their email.
The room was dark and had a shared balcony which can get very noisy at night.We had A/C, TV and fridge.Sometimes there was no hot water, the sink was broken and the shower hardly had any power from the water.
There were ants everywhere.
Breakfast was not great,we would have gone elsewhere to have it if we hadnt already paid.The bread was stale,the eggs undercooked,the fruit was over ripe and the coffee was like tar.I love a strong coffee but this was too thick, you had to ask for milk as they give you the powdered creamer satchets.
There was a very pushy member of staff whom i cannot recall his name.On our first morning at breakfast we were knackered after a 15 hour bus journey from Vientiane.He proceeded to sell us tours of the city, all we wanted to do was eat our breakfast in peace.
We booked a boat trip to the Buddha Caves for the following day.However the next morning my partner wasnt well so we couldnt go.We tried to arrange it for the following day and he said we needed to pay an extra $20 as we had cancelled.We reluctantly paid but were fuming.Dont book any trips with them,it is cheaper to book them yourself down by the river for half the price.
There are plenty of nicer places to stay in the town for half the price.
