January is cold in Phonsovan. An especially hard bed makes for a brutal night. But hot water showers, and cordial hospitality go a long way. Mr. K and his staff were delightful, and not enough can be said about Mr. Noods. Mr. Noods organized our individual tours, arranged our drivers and shuttled us from and to the airport. He is...

They came to the bus station to pick me up as I arranged for this before hand. The rooms are fine for the price and clean. Everything worked and wifi reception was ok and speeds were good enough for a Skype voice call. Breakfast was good with fruits, toasted baguette, ham, mini cocktail sausages and eggs. Coffee was thick and...

Nice hotel with ok rooms, a balcony and good breakfast. Would absolutely stay in this place again. Interesting area! Visit Plain of Jars. Very interesting and terrible with all the US-bombs still in this area!

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the plains and we loved this place. A bit away from the Main Street makes it nice and quiet. Friendly and welcoming staff that were helpful and kind. We got freshly cooked breakfast each day by the staff, they waited until we were up before making it so we would get hot food....

Cheap and practical - simple room and en suite, small breakfast. Several examples of cluster bombs on the staircase. Well located for a couple of things to do in town, just along the main road, e.g. the UXO centres (open until 8 or 9pm?), and massage by a UXO blinded victim (until 9 or 10pm) plus a couple of eateries....

The Hillside Residence. The hillside is about a 12 minute walk from the main “downtown” eating area which is no big deal, but at night the little pot holed, rock covered side road on which it is situated can be a bit of a challenge. That being said though, the “Hillside” is a great little place to stay. Whilst it's...

We would highly recommend the Hillside Residence (and Phonsavan in general) on a number of fronts! We had debated whether to go there — it’s out-of-the-way, and a big time commitment — but we were tremendously glad we did. We chose the Hillside Residence for the combined good price and what sounded like helpful guidance with tours. Before arriving, we...

The hotel is a bit away from the main street, which means it's quite at night. ;-) you can easily walk to all the important things in town (which is actually not much...). The owner is very, very friendly and helpful. He made fresh breakfast for us every morning. The rooms are very clean and they have a nice little...

Like others have said, the owner is a very friendly guy. The hotel is clean & rooms have balconies, but it's nothing fancy. It was still abnormally cold when we arrived in Phonsavan, so sitting out on the balcony was not an option for us. We piled on the blankets in order to be warm enough at night, then walked...
