“Rooms need thorough cleaning”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Considering the price, it is rather ok -- rooms are large, the bed is comfortable and the place is quiet. The sheets and towels were all stained, but smelled of recent wash. Internet works all right. But there was a bit layer of dust all over our room. Behind the bed, which we had to move after something fell, the dirt had adhered to the floor. We asked them to clean it and they simply passed the broomstick very quickly, which clearly wasn't enough. The bathroom was quite disgusting. For a new place, it was rather run down, I think. Have no idea how this place compares to others in Phonsavan though.

The hotel is ok for the price,comfy beds and good views from the balcony.
Do not organise tours from here though.
The guy promises you the earth then you end up with a grumpy old guy with no English spoken and no local knowledge. He is the owner of the Sabaidee guesthouse down the road.
There are plenty of tour options in town.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with family

Stumbled upon this place after everything else on the main road was full. Its just behind Nice GH. Its good value for money 80,000 for twin room. There is a tv and the beds are very comfortable. Good location - very quiet. The bathroom is very clean as well but they need to do something about the leaking which comes after taking a shower - the water floods the room sometimes.

3 friends and I stayed at this new guest house in Phonesavan, Xiengquang in February 2011. It's a new building that is just behind (South of) the Nice Guest House on the street that runs parallel to highway 7 the main street in town. Rooms were clean with comfortable enough new twin beds and good comforters (important in Xieng Quang in February.) Not well insulated for cold, but with the comforter I was not cold. (And we had no problems with noise.) There was an on-demand hot water heater that was at least adequate and an AC for summer. For 10$/ room / night the price was right too.

Nam Chai Phone number for a reservation: Landline: 061-312-095 Cell: 020-2234-0546, 020-2293-7744.

Make sure to visit Nisha (the indian restaurant) while in town - their packed lunches are good for the plain of jars trip, but if you order one they will make you write a positive review letter, and pack extra hand wipes. Dinner or breakfast are great options here too.
