We went here due to recommendations from LP but it is a dump. We came up river from Luang Prabang via small motorboat (a must for the scenery and the people) and could climb directly to the balcony from the river via a rickety old ladder so decided to walk around instead. When we got into the town there were no directions on how to get there but we finally found it by walking down little alleys overflowing with sewage.
When we got there no-one was at reception but people were all sitting around on a balcony that shook whenever someone walked on it drinking beer. We finally got someones attention and they showed us a room. It had doors that didn't close let alone lock, filthy sheets on the beds and a cold shower.
We got the feeling that this place survived because people were too tired to seek out other accommodation after finding it as there are very few places to stay here.
For dinner we originally ordered there but it took an hour before they came back and told us they didn't have that and could we choose something else. So we did, we left both dinner and the hotel for another place.
