The rooms are really well presented with a keen attention to detail for a guesthouse of this price. Clean, cosy and comfortable. Free water replenished when you need it, a decent wifi connection and an enclosed shower cubicle as opposed to the wet room style bathrooms you tend to get in SE Asia. The owner is Chinese and doesn't speak a word of English, but was always pleased to see us. His son who speaks good English and the young Laos staff member are the guys running the show here in a light hearted and friendly way as tends to be the Laos way (although they didn't have a clue who Batman was!).
The restaurant across the road is as good as any in the center of town and quite romantic by the river. As we left they had just got a second hand pool table with a cue ball more akin to a hexagon which led to some hilarious games of pool.
They also sorted us out very helpfully with a room very late when our flight out of Laos was cancelled and we had to stay an extra night, though it was a their VERY backpacker lodging round the corner as they were fully booked. We enjoyed LP so much, and the guys at Mekong Sunset made it all the better.
