“Very quiet guesthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013

This guesthouse is situated in a street of the Sisavangvong Road at about 300m of the Joma Bakery (coming from the bakery, turn left at the fountain).
It a very quiet guesthouse with nice rooms and clean bathroom.
There is always someone at the reception desk.
Coffee/tea and bananas for free at the reception desk. Sometimes, when we were in the room in the afternoon to refresh us, the staff surprised us with fresh fruit.
Upstairs, there is a large common terrace with Wifi (bad Wifi connection in the room).

Room Tip: Rooms at ground floor are cheaper

Stayed 2 nights prepaid with Agoda. The daughter-in-law of the owner spoke good english. Arriving quite early in the day, I expected to have to wait for the room but it was ready. Room was excellent compared to the place in Vientiane. No probs with toilet or roosters like previous reviewer. The son of the family even took his motorbike to call me a tuktuk couple of times. Cleaning staff were courteous. The night guy was actually a young schoolkid who spoke good english and was reliable with wake up calls. Breakfast was nice and served just outside the room on your personal table. Would definitely recommend.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

We stayed at Rattanakone for one night only. The guest house is really clean and neat, and the service staff are really friendly and helpful, although not all had good english. The service was great, the man on reception even went to a shop up the road for us and bought a beer for us when we enquired where we could get one.

Ok, now the reasons why we only stayed one night:

1. The toilet blocked up and we could not flush it, it nearly overflowed!!!

2. The neighbours have roosters. Yes I know nearly everyone has roosters in Laos, but these were right outside the hotel room window and they crowed not just in the morning, but at 10pm, 12am, 2am, 4 am etc etc.... so no sleep was had by me.
To make it more difficult, the reception guy who spoke good english wasn't there for me to tell him the problem. So we could not understand each other.

This was really disappointing because everything else about the guest house was great!!!

So my suggestions to the owners are.... train all of your staff in english, fix your sewerage system, and ask your neighbours to either get rid of the roosters, move them, or cover them up somehow.
