I was leary of staying here based on the bad reviews of cleanliness and breakfast. I was wrong. Room was clean and breakfast was wonderful and plentiful and bug-free. Coffee was GREAT.
We stayed 2 nights and 1 full day. i.e. we arrived in the pm of day 1, had a full day, stayed a second night, and left the next morning to Luang Prabang.
The full day we used for a water cave+kayaking trip - it was so much fun! But we discovered upon arrival in Luang Prabang that a HUGE amount of cash we had locked in our suitcase had been stolen - all our money! (we travel with cash, yes). We are diligent responsible people that have traveled w/o being robbed for 20 years! We know this is the window during which the money was stolen. We are so disappointed, it has ruined our trip to Laos!
Recommend the hotel, just never leave anything valuable unattended.
