Accommodation in Luang probing we found is slightly more expensive then most places in SE Asia and this was the only place we could find an air con room for $10. However it was probably the worst $10 you can spend. The wifi is there but so slow that it takes over an hour to load a page, the air con blows out hot air, (it was 38 degrees outside and when we stepped out our room it was genuinely cooler outside), and the staff are beyond rude. We went down at around midnight because we could not sleep as the aircon would not work and asked if we could maybe move rooms or if they could help fix it. However the response we got was to be shouted at! The next morning we promptly checked out after a sleepless night and headed to one of the many nicer guest-houses nearby. When we refused to pay the full price of the aircon room (we still offered to pay the price of a fan room, when really we shouldn't of given them a dime) he threw a paddy as if we were in the wrong. Also several times we wanted to book different things at the hotel (before all the drama with them) and not once out of six or seven times was there some one at reception. The Two men spend their entire time out on the streets dragging people to this hotel and then forget about any guests actually staying there. On the up side you could probably leave without paying and they wouldn't notice you had gone as they take no record of who you are when you arrive. (I strongly recommend you only stay here if you want to try this tactic).
