Close to attractions”
It's situated very close to the main attractions of the island, including the bridge who connects with Don Dhet. Nice view over the bridge. Bicycles were very helpful for the waterfall; some good restaurants in the area. Do the dolphin watch.

If service is important don’t go here”
Loved our stay here, and the two gentlemen who run the reception area were fantastic and very friendly, it all went down hill every morning whilst having breakfast.The girls had no idea of service and are probably in the wrong job.I would say this needs addressing before I would stay here again.

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.

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.

A perfect and peaceful location to recharge your battery after a travelling for a while. Helpful staff however, English vocabulation can be improved in order to avoid misunderstandings between costumers and staff.

A comfortable hotel in countryside”
Nice room, good service and unique location
At first, it took a bit long to check in, the staffs were not very goood at speaking English. The room was nice, large and well-organised but there was no hair dryer and the secutity lock was not working. There was a swimming pool near the river, very nice view but we did not have time to try. In short, it was the best hotel in Don Khong island as I thought.

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.

Awful!”
Dirty, rundown, urgent need for repairs. Cockroaches in the room. Noisy neighborhood, bar music until midnight so bring earplugs. Customer service non-existent. Furnitures broken, carpets and bedsheets stained. Breakfast so disgusting that we had to eat at a near-by hotel. The worst price/quality ratio ever experienced. Walk away!

Classy Heritage Hotel...”
but go for the riverside/floating studio rooms rather than the Heritage Suite we were in. Though located in the main old French colonial building, it was dark with no windows. Nice but... bed was good. Hot water pressure lacking. Nice pool that my mother-in-law took advantage of, nice restaurant along the river. Staff was friendly and helpful. Most disappointing was the breakfast (limited options) - especially the coffee! For being so close to the Bolaven plateau and all the fine coffee being grown and prepared there and other parts of Laos, having really muddy, sub-par coffee was unacceptable (and the alternative was Nescafe instant coffee, which we opted for because it tasted better than what was "brewed"). Nice, pleasant place overall though.

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.

Excellent Location, facilities and lovely staff”
We ended up staying 5 days, as the place was so relaxing and enjoyable. The staff were lovely and very service oriented. We did stay in the floating house rooms which were on the river which gave us a lovely and relaxed outlook, however I know the other rooms are excellent as well. One of the places where I have had the best service in Lao.

Floating studio the best”
Stayed in the floating studio, incredible view, very relaxing but expensive for what it is. Not sure why you would want to stay in some of the rooms. The one we booked on line was situated next to the road overlooking a garden so not private. Fortunately we were able to upgrade but it cost us. Pool OK if you don,t look too hard. Overall definitely in need of a makeover without increasing prices.Food dreadful and staff very basic

Location, floating studio, restaurant
The floating studio's are really nice, with a nice balcony adjacent to the water. If you have the choice, take the ones with a flat roof, as the airco is hardly capable of cooling the ones with the tilted roof.

Average stay in a primitive style building”
price, tranquility, food
Well, we booked late the night before and arrived to find out that our bungalow was not available. Surprise, surprise. We were given a discount and stayed in a room with a shared bathroom among two other rooms. Had to wait a lot of the time to use the bathroom. No power after 10pm so no fan, lights or ability to charge electronics. Windows were not very well sealed so the bug net for the bed was a necessity. Location is not the greatest. It is at least a 15 min bike ride from the ferry boat. Hard to find. Also, the ferry boat closes at 6pm so if you are not on the island by that time you are screwed. Overall, make sure you are aware of the no power after 10pm, primitive rooms, shared bathroom, and not so good location.
