      Excellent value and good services with a historic touch.”

      Sala Don Khone is located in the middle of Ban Khone, the largest village on Don Khone island. Ask the ferry from Ban Nakasang to drop you on the spot. There are different types of accommodations, all around the Historic House. The room was very spacious and excellent value. A good breakfast and optional lunch and dinner are served in a nearby restaurant, but in normal times there are many alternatives nearby. Katay has good advices and can arrange tours and transport.

      So good we extended our stay”

      We enjoyed our stay at Sala Done Khone. It started a little rocky because of confusion about what was offered here on Agoda and what the hotel could actually provide (there are no TVs in the rooms and reception is not in the building pictured above). The manager who greeted us was fantastic, very apologetic and did his best offering solutions and compensation. We loved our quiet suite just down the road from reception and close to the swimming pools. Our suite had plenty of space was clean and tidy and had a beautiful bathroom. We would be happy to stay at this hotel again. Out thanks to management and staff.

      Great location for a lovely floating hotel”

      What a surprise our floating room was! Literally on the water, could lay in bed and watch the boats go by..... The large and airy dining area, also on the water, is a pleasure to hang out at and watch the world go by. Our rooms were lovely although despite the beds being made every day and towels changed, the bathroom was never cleaned. The staff were very helpful, organising out bookings back to the mainland and the rental of motorbikes. We were in the pool every day - what a pleasure with the hot weather. If I ever have the good fortune to visit the 4000 Islands again, I'm going straight to Sala Don Khone.

      Unique Floating Studios”

      Sala Done Khone is divided into three distinct sections; the Old French House, a set of bungalows, and the floating studios, where we stayed. They provide a unique perspective of the Mekong, floating on and sitting flush to the water. It's lovely, especially around sunset, though the studios themselves are a little tired e.g. hole in the bathroom wall, dirty stairs to a nondescript roof (a wasted opportunity, it could be made into a nice terrace), and old sheets. But overall a good experience except the early morning wake-up from someone cleaning bamboo with a noisy pressure washer right outside our room. Bizarre and irritating. Book your trips and tours down the track at Chez Fred and Lea because Sala Done Khone charge a markup.

      Very pleasant stay. Peaceful and good location to enjoy the Mekong on the balcony outside your room. The room was clean. The air conditioning worked as well as the ceiling fan. The shower was adequate. However the swimming pool was not inviting as it needed cleaning. Shame as we got there after hours of travelling and a swim would have been most welcome ! Don Khone is a beautiful island well worth visiting if you want to enjoy peace and quiet and a true sense of what Laos is all about.

      Highly recommend. We stayed in a floating bungalow for 3 nights and it was brilliant. Clean rooms, brilliant view of the Mekong and attentive staff who organised reasonably cheap tours for us. There is also a pool area with sun loungers that I wasn't aware of when booking. My only comments for improvement would be that the beds are pretty old and full of springs, however I am yet to find a comfortable bed in the whole of se Asia and the breakfast is rather poor. Coffee was instant, juice very cheap and sugary, bread tasted like meat. Take our advice and head to 'the garden' a lovely resteraunt 2 mins up the road with a lovely massage place attached. Overall a positive experience though on Don Khon.

      Cleanliness, room size, location

      Staff performance was terrible from prior to check in (didn't communicate at all via email to offer assistance on coming to Don Khone), through to check in when we were hardly acknowledged on arrival and also during our stay where staff were less than attentive. The restaurant was incredibly disappointing and breakfast was so meagre i.e. Buttered baguette and a banana. Dinner was also underwhelming and for the cost, I would recommend going anywhere but there on Don Khone. Wifi was also really poor and would intermittently drop out throughout our three night stay. In saying all of that, the rooms are conveniently located in amongst the thick of things on the island and the rooms are clean and very spacious. Unfortunately I felt it was overall poor value for money.

      Bungalow - rice paddies view”

      We loved to stay on Don Kon island, and enjoyed the swimming pool with the Mekong view (even though there are bungalows on the front but you see Mekong on the side and in the pool). The bungalow we stayed in was very quiet (at the back of a nice garden that could be so much prettier with some cleaning) and we were happy with that. But you have to know this thing : this hotel is overpriced : you don't get the quality you expect for this kind of place. For ex. : they change everyday the bedsheets (which is a waste) BUT they don't clean the floor of the bathroom, even though there are marks of soil on it. The very simple breakfast is served on a tired terrasse which has, thankfully, a great view. The hotel management should read the reviews and try to improve, because they have a great location, and very fine buildings, but they don't really make the best of it.

      Great view, direct access to river, rooftop balcony

      As above the room was excellently located and you do really feel like you are floating as the waves take you with each passing boat. Waking up to the view of the river with Don Det and the sky as background was fantastic. This is truly a place meant for you to forget about time and just relax by the river all day. The front desk staff was excellent and very efficient. The housekeeping team can be both fast and yet complete in their work. On the flip side, this hotel does take some time getting to from the airport with a 2.5 hour drive and a 30 min boat ride but it was worth it getting to the 4000 islands. The regular bus takes you from Pakse city southern bus terminal to ban nakasang in 4 hours and then a boat ride to the islands and costs 70,000 kip (USD$9), however the only way from the airport to the southern bus terminal seems to be a minivan transport which costs 100,000kip. We took the minivan all the way to nakasang instead for 800,000 kip.

      ????

      Booked for 3 nights in "renovated" bungalow - thankfully special was offered 3 nights get one free. On arrival barely any words spoken or greeting given by duty manager. Definately not a renovated floating studio even when repeatedly asked. Keen to do some tours and book return boat/bus with Sala Don Khone as indicated that they can do bookings but unfortunately not helpful - when asked if they had a map - was advised to look at the mural painting of the island outside. Made fatal mistake of leaving a dim light on after our return from dinner to find we had over 3 million other guests ie; insects both dead and alive. This was due to no sealing around ceiling or around/under doors & windows. Toilet moved when sat on. Towel rail fell down when even looking in its direction. All linen very tired and scratchy, sheets for duration of stay were not changed, simply re-made - complete with holes and insect's dead remains. Breakfast ladies were both always lovely, greeted with friendly smiles and happy to top up the coffee cup. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. Sadly the more you pay and are deceived by what they say they offer the less you actually recieve.
