Mixok Guesthouse
Ranked #49 of 201 Vientiane B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stayed at the Mixok Inn guesthouse which is on the same street one block from the sister company. We Looked at around 5 different guesthouses before we checked into this place. Vientiane is not the cheapest place but the difference between 120 kip and 150kip was quite significant. The rooms were new and had really comfortable beds and pillows cable TV, Aircon,WIFI in room, decent bathroom and free breakfast (limited options). Helpful staff can also organize onward travel. Two thumbs up.

The Mixok Guesthouse is located on Setthathirat Road, which is the main tourist street, just two blocks away from the Mekong River. There are shops, restaurants, temples and tourist sites within walking distance of the guesthouse. My husband and I stayed here for two nights en route to Luang Prabang. We did not stay in Vientiane to do any sightseeing in particular, but given the location of the guesthouse, we did end up seeing some of the city's major sites, so it was definitely a plus.

What we liked most about this guesthouse is that it is CLEAN. The floors were sparkling and the sheets fresh. In fact, we have been traveling for almost a year now, all over Asia, and the pillows at this guesthouse were probably the cleanest and newest that we have slept on. The mattresses were a little soft and you can hear the noise from the street at night, but I slept quite comfortably despite this (well, woke up with a little tweak on my neck and shoulders, but not too bad otherwise). The AC and TV worked and you get full WIFI signal even on the third floor. Our room was spacious so I even had enough space to do a little yoga in the morning!

Breakfast was average, not much to comment on, but at least it's included in the room rate.

Ladyboys do hang around street corners at night. I was with my husband so he did not get approached. Not sure if you're a single guy.

in all the time i have spent in SE Asia this is one of the best GH i have stayed at.
Price was the main reason we chose here as it is very reasonable. But everything about the place exceeds most GH. The room was newly revamped, very clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in.
The staff were amazing, friendly and offered great advice which saved us alot of money.
They never tried to push their tours but told us how to do it all locally at a fraction of the price.
Its in a good location and has a internet cafe.
All in all.....two thumbs up!

There is not much wrong with this guesthouse: we got our room already early in the morning, the room was run-down but functional, WiFi worked fine. We had a good night's sleep there and the hotel is very centrally located so you can explore Vientiane by foot. Breakfast is not a big hit and is served at Mixok Inn just next door.

If you look for an OK place to stay for a night or two (why would you stay longer in Vientiane anyhow?) - take it. You won't find a much better deal if you want to book ahead.

The place looks clean enough, and it's a cheaper option than the other Mixok up the road. OK mattress, Ok room. The place is very badly insulated. You hear EVERYTHING that is going on in the corridors. Slaming doors, staff talking, bedroom neighbours. We took one of the rooms at the back to avoid street noise. Still, a dog was barking at anything late at night. The staff was partying in reception until late. Reception staff was quite unfriendly. Only happy when they received money. They sold us a bus ticket that was more expensive than the others. They lied on the trip duration (6 and a half hours to go to Luang Prabang from Vientiane by bus is just impossible).

The room we got was big, with desk, wardrobe, cable TV and aircon. It had two big windows which meant it was really nice and light. The bathroom was fine, hot shower. We had a shared balcony right next to our room. It is located in the centre of everything which was good, but did mean it was a bit noisy. The particular corner it is one is a ladyboy hang out, but that didn't really bother us, it was quite amusing observing them.
The beds are very comfortable and the wifi is good,
The room was a good price, especially considering you get breakfast which for us tends to be the most expensive meal of the day. Breakfast was nice; tea or coffee, fruit, egg and baguette.
I would recommend to a friend.
