over the last 7 years i have been travelling in south east Asia every year and stay in all kinds of accommodation ranging from $8 per night upwards, after biking through other parts of Laos thought i would treat myself to a nice hotel with swimming pool for a bit of r and r, big mistake here,,,first the room had a really musty smell so the room person sprayed with some deodorizer smell came after about 5 hours, don't worry about using the pool, first after you walk through the car park then 50 meters of something like concrete in the heat i got to a luke warm pool that looked like a stagnant pond with leafs and dead insects no shade no umbrellas no towels so i thought i would get a beer at the poolside restaurant no staff, hot as a sauna no air-conditioning just horrible, breakfast was ordinary to say the least i like Asian style breakfast but not sitting in baine- maries just luke warm for how long who knows, the coffee was as thick as tar you couldn't drink it the bread was very cheap considering you can get really good bread in pakse and no sweet pastries or if stale and hard, stick to the eggs. some staff were nice and others seemed not to care, and one last thing it is far from the main central city allow 20 min waiting time after you ring for tuk tuk ,,i really don't know who rates these hotel but this one in particular about 2 and a half stars
