    Exceeded first impressions”
    We booked on the internet and expected an en suite double room. When we arrived we were shown a bamboo hut with a fan over looking the river but we were told we could move into the brick building, also overlooking the river, the following day. However the hut had a balcony and hammock, the bathroom was a bit primitive but the place had charm and a mosquito net. The next day we turned down the move to brick building and stayed in our cosy hut. Staff were friendly, we didn't try breakfast. Short walk into town along by the river.

    Stunning location.”
    Hotel has a large balcony overlooking the river--a great place to just sit and soak in the wonderful views. The large delicious breakfasts are served here. The hotel is quiet and only a five minute walk to town. The owner is very knowledgeable about the area and runs tours.

    Perfect Stay”
    Location is a bit walk away from the central town area but more close to the real local life. There is a primary school nearby and morning market. Of course as all the others have mentioned, the view from the balcony is so beautiful! At night you can see the milky way from the balcony and lucky me saw a shooting star! Was really stunning! Mr Mang and the wife speak good english and they helped in whiever way they could. I left my phone on the minivan while arriving LPQ, Mr Mang helped me contact the driver and got my phone back. Thanks Mr Mang!

    I'd recommend it for 1 night only”
    The price is reasonable (we paid 13 AUD for a double room), but it is pretty rustic. There are some bugs and big gaps in the floorboards and bottom of the door so nothing you can really do to keep them out. They do provide a mosquito net which helps. On location, the views of the river are beautiful but there's not much else in the immediate vicinity - though it's only a short walk to restaurants. They can also organise onward travel. We bought bus tickets to Dien Bien Phu for 260k LAK each, we think this may be expensive, especially given the standard of the bus (old, cramped (very cramped!), bit dirty). The bus seemed to be more of a locals bus than a tourists bus, which is fine if that's what you paid for and expect. I'd just recommend some more research before buying.

    Bad Choice”
    Sadly I have to give this place a bad review. It was everything ok till the first night. First we had no water during 2 days. We bought also a boat tour, bit the boat has no conditions, we had to seat in very hard and small wood place, the Kaiak Intake was also broken and let water come inside. We could not paddle. When we made the check-out the woman wanted to charge us more than we booked with Agoda. Moreafter they agreed with us to prepare a room for 3 people and after, said that they could not do it and charged 80.000 kips for one person in a room. The owner was drunk while talking to us. So I don't recommend this place just because of the Staff. Shame...

    Noisiest place in town”
    There is a flotting restaurant just few meters away who start his music at 9AM until 23 PM!!! The manager also have a travel agency, if you don't take is tour he we will be the worst with you! Also all day long there is only one man who doesn't speak english to manage the place... And the room doesn't worth this price, it's crazy expensive and it's also really noisy, you heard a water pomp, people next door and above... I stay one month in Laos and it's the worth place i have been. If you want some tranquility go to Muang Gnoi to the veranda hotel, the bungalow are cheaper and soooooo relaxing....

    Glad we stayed here, its a little walk from restaurants but it is very peaceful. Only noise from the occasional boat passing. Room comfortable. Get a room upstairs, less noise from other guest's and better view. No facilities at the guesthouse. They have a lovely area by the river but no beer or snacks for sale so you can't really enjoy it.

    Its a homely atmosphere, facility is between bus stop and main tourist area, both in comfortable walking distance. River view is nice but staff often not available for requests. If you stay on first floor be aware that every move is heard in the ground floor :-) If visited in winter months be aware to have enough warm clothes, it gets quite chill inside the room.

    Good view, and peaceful place. ”
    We stayed here for 4 nights. It has there own balcony which is very peaceful and lovely. And not too far from city. Close to market but little bit far from restaurants. The coco restaurant was our favorite. It takes 10min by walk. Mr. Mang has his own tour shop. So you can ask him for the day or 2.3days trips. But we are not sure if it is cheap. Costs of tour is not clear so you have to compare with an-others. There were many bugs, even cockroach. We saw a huge one in our toilet.

    Book this through agoda, when we arrive the owner (?) said it had no available rooms. It was a bit late (9pm) so we couldn't find any other place to stay at that time. Maybe they don't use agoda or cross check reservations made here and other places. Good luck!

    Peaceful location, nice view, difficult to communicate with staff ”
    A really nice spot away from the more touristy bridge area with a nice view and huge room. Decently comfy beds, mosquito net, and cramped bathroom and shower. Biggest issue was communicating with staff- only 2 people speak English. If you need anything, you'll have to wait and check again to see if someone new comes and if they speak English. They were all very friendly, however. Would reccommend.

    Big room, amazing river view, very clean. Only down side is it is a bit far from all the restaurants. I was traveling alone and found it a bit scary walking back in the dark from town. But if you're not alone the walk would probably be fine, it's not very far. Would recommend!

    Hotel needs some renovation though, but for 10 plus USD per night....nothing more to ask for. However the view was facing the Nam Ou river, nice view and great sun- can wash ur cloth and dry it under the dun although the laundry is 1 kg for 10000 krit.
