Warmly recommended !”

Spacious room with balcony, view on the Mekong, perfect location to move around

We arrived here by chance, just following the Mekong, sunrise side. Then the building retained my attention, as the architecture is particular, modern and exotic, like a mix between oriental and occidental style, painted in clear colours, with the use of wood, a beautiful garden full of flowers in bloom. There was also plants on the balconies, all facing the Mekong. Round varnished tables in heavy wood, and comfortable woven armchairs. We came in for a visit, then the French manager (nicknamed Baba) warmly welcomed us. He speaks good English and perfectly Lao. We had the choice between two rooms : one on the ground floor, and one upstairs. Both were perfectly clean, luminous with large windows, bathroom, furnitures, and beautifully decorated. The room downstairs was more spacious, but we took the one on the second level for the panoramic view on the Mekong. Two glasses and a bottle of water on the table, clean towels, white sheets and toilet paper. The bed was excellent, and the pillows delighfully soft. Easy to attach, a large mosquito net was ready to install, and the water under pressure flew normally in the cleaned bathroom. We stayed there four nights, instead of two, because the place was so charming, peaceful and perfectly quiet for holidays. The staff, a Lao woman with her teen daughter were just adorable, helpful, attentive, and smiling. In the morning, we had breakfasts, and the food was tasty : French bread, real butter and quality fruit jam. The drinks were good also, black coffee and Lipton tea mith fresh milk. The guesthouse is well located, only 5 mins walk to the ferry boat, close to many restaurants, bars and shops, and still in a quiet area, surrounded by nature, between the Mekong river and the rice fields. Don Det was so lovely, there, maybe the best experience we had during our tour in Asia !

Sophisticated Oasis in Don Det”

Although pricier than its neighbors, Baba offers a great location, a friendly and always -helpful owner, and some of the best-kept rooms in Don Det. While the restaurant was closed this time due to it being low season, I remember from my previous stay there that it has the best coffee on the island. Essential place to stay for any non-budget traveler.

Great quality place to stay”

We loved our room at Baba's. Big, pretty clean (we did find some traces of spiderwebs on the window sills, well-furnished, very powerful A/C in addition to a strong fan. Handmade soap in the bathroom and a big bottle of water componentry with each day of your stay. The balcony is great to chill on with a view of the river. Food is overpriced and not filling, so pass on that. Owner is very courteous. Located just a hop, skip and jump away from the Don Det ferry port. Best choice on the island!

We had a good time in Baba Guesthouse. The AC and wifi worked well, the rooms are big and clean and the owner takes good care of the customers. If you are looking for some confort it's a good place to stay although it's overplized compared to the other hotels you can find there.

Don Det is a backpacker paradise, if that's not your cuppa, avoid the island entirely. That aside, Baba's was a good respite from it. Lovely room, huge bathroom, service was good.

This is close to the main drag in Don Det though quietly apart and set back. The rooms are comfortable with chairs and table and with good outside patios. The breakfast bar opposite is attractive and right on the river.

Just about OK”

This area of Don Det is full of backpackers guesthouses, and not really very nice or clean. We would have stayed in Don Khone if we had known. Baba guesthouse was ok, rooms were simple with balconies overlooking the mekong. We arrived early, and French owner mentioned check in was not before 12, he even charged us for hot water for our tea bags we had brought with us. They have a restaurant space in front of the hotel but only served limited breakfast, unused the rest of the day - seemed pointless. Steps up to the rooms are so high, you may want to stay downstairs. Not the best place on the island.

Best accomodation on the island”

The rooms are large, clean and have great views overlooking the river. The aircon is fantastic - we met lots of people who had booked bungalows but found the weather in May too hot and were scrambling to find alternative accommodations with A/C. Our only suggestion is that they invest in a water filter for people to fill up their bottles, rather than supply plastic 1.5 litres each day.
