We stayed in a 100,000 kip double room. The room was dingy and cold (we had to ask for extra blankets), but perfectly fine for our three night stay. We were most excited by the enclosed shower - the first we'd seen in a while - no wet floor in the bathroom!
We heard from others that a hotel along the road to the minivan station was much better and cleaner for 80,000. The guesthouse had a sign saying China Food outside - so that may be a help.
We didn't even bother with breakfast at the White Orchid and instead ate most meals at Bamboozle - a great brand new restaurant catering to tourists.
There was a guide connected with the hotel but he charged upwards of $120 for a tour! I can't believe people pay this for a private tour when you can with a small group for $18 anywhere else in town.
If you have an extra day I'd recommend the silk farm outside town (50,000 return tuk-tuk) and the market - we had the best noodle soup at a stall there (10,000).
