I stayed here for 3 nights and the location is perfect - really convenient for everything in Vientiane.
I was travelling alone and felt safe walking to and from the guest house in the evening, and secure when in the room. It was very quiet considering the central location. I liked the arrangement for breakfast. When I was ready, I sat out on the balcony and the girls brought breakfast. It was simple juice/croissant/banana with tea or coffee, but exactly what I would choose so I enjoyed it.
The accommodation was clean but the towels didn't seem to be - they smelled very unpleasant. They were changed daily, but all smelled the same. I used a towel I had brought with me.
This is not the place to stay if you are hoping to interact with other travellers. There is no "common area" where guests mingle, and I had minimal interaction with staff and no-one introduced themselves as the owner or manager.
This is a personal preference, but after my stay at Sala Inpeng I have decided that I wouldn't book into a wooden built guest house again - I found it a bit dark and gloomy.
