As we turned into the road where the hotel was we wondered 'what have we done', it was a back street full of pot holes and dust and not very nice. We walked down the lane to be greeted with a reasonably large hotel with a pool. The owners and staff are Vietnamese and very friendly and accommodating. As said in other reviews the place is in a state of remodelling which could go on for a few more months, at times it was quite noisy. Our room had been repainted and modernised, had coffee and tea with mini bar, air conditioning was good, the shower in the bathroom did not have a waste, the water ran out across the floor to the other side of the toilet. The hot water at times was hard to regulate and the pressure was not good. There is no hair dryer or phone and TV is Lao only no English or other language. The bed was quite hard as it appeared to be on a concrete base. The pool was cloudy when we arrived, after 4 days it was green, we did not use it but others did. Breakfast had corn flakes, fruit, pancakes, toast and eggs done a number of ways, tea and coffee. The table clothes need changing as they were well worn and grubby. It is not far from the river, eateries, night market, and the many Wats on every corner. We booked on agoda and I guess the price was right for being so close to everything but as for quality of the hotel it is over priced even after the renovations. Staff arranged a taxi to take us to the airport at 4.30am they were always very helpful.
