Upon descending from the slow boat from Houai Sai, Laos, you will be greeted by a horde of hotel representatives who will whisk you away in their tuk tuks for a look of their properties. There is little to worry about should you not have any reservations as there are ample choices to make with only your budget and personal choices setting the limits.
Sokdee is conveniently located about 2 blocks from the main commercial district of the old town where the night market is held and where most of the visitors congregate.
It is a simple and well furnished guesthouse. Clean bathroom although there was a gigantic hole in the shower in my room. Good, cool a/c, quiet and reasonably priced at about $25 per night without breakfast. While nothing special, it is a place to hang your hat without worrying about much else. There are many, many places to choose from and if so, stay a night and do a better search in the morning after you have rested after the two day boat ride.
I shopped around for another place for the next four nights, but not before doing a search on trip advisor to see what others had to say. My review on the Chang Inn will be posted shortly.
It is a five minute walk to the commercial center where restaurants and shops are plentiful.
Your stay in Luang Prabang may well be the highlight of your visit to Laos, finding a great place to stay will make your visit even more memorable.
