“Good enough for Muang Khuang”
Reviewed February 4, 2011

This family-run guesthouse is located in a wonderful place, with terrific views oer the river Nam Ou.
Very basic rooms and toilets, but it is what you expect for the price you pay (in our case, 40000 kips for a double room).
The owner and his family are very helpful and nice people.
OK for one or two, which is the time you'll most probably spend in Muang Khuang before heading to Vietnam or deeper into Laos.
Recommended.

Reviewed December 5, 2010

We paid 50,000k for a night in a double room with attached shower/toilet. The toilet was a sit-down style with a bucket flush. The cold shower had really poor water pressure – I found it easier to have a bucket shower.
Our room had an air of neglect and could have been cleaner. No apparent attention had been paid to detail, eg the room door did not close properly, a fault which should have been quick and easy to fix.
Also, we were unhappy to discover a small caged animal outside our room. The cage was tiny and the animal was clearly distressed. We attempted to convey our concern to the guest house owners but they didn’t appear to speak enough English (and we certainly didn’t speak enough Lao!) to understand what we were getting at.

There are a couple of places in town with English menus where you can get the usual western breakfasts, fried rice and noodles. Other than that there does not seem to be much to do in Muang Khoua, but it is a convenient stopover if you are crossing the border from/to Vietnam.

Tip: From Muang Khoua we took a slow boat downriver to Muang Ngoi. This was a relatively expensive mode of public transport, but well worth it for the scenery. We paid 110,000kip each for the three hour trip.
