I stayed at the Golden Lotus for four nights back in October. After arriving by boat I looked at a number of guesthouses, but after seeing the room at the Golden Lotus I was happy to spend more for the room than planned. The main reason was the spacious, very clean room, a comfortable double bed, TV with lots of channels for relaxing after a hard day sightseeing (and able to watch to Champions League football at night), and a well sized bathroom.
The other great thing about the guesthouse is the location. It is just off Sisavangvong Road, opposite of Wat Mai. The morning market is actually outside of the guesthouse, and I could look at the market from my room (no noise issue either). The night market is literally a 1 minute walk away, the night food market is 3 minutes away, and lots of restaurants and bars are all nearby. You really cannot ask for a more central location.
The staff is the final advantage of the Golden Lotus – they were always trying to help, provide recommendations, and also enjoyed a chat with the guests.
Other amenities include free tea facilities and a shared fridge in the lobby, the usual WiFi (with good connection on the first floor). They offer laundry service, and can arrange bus tickets as well. Finally, there was always someone in the lobby, even during the night (sleeping in the lobby), so you could come back to the guesthouse at any time (though they will remind you to be quiet so no other guests are disturbed by late comers).
Overall, it is a great guesthouse with a perfect location, and a fantastic value for the off-season price I paid. I would highly recommend it.
