We stayed at the Thongbay guesthouse in vientiane for one night in july 2007. Im not entirely sure how we even got onto thongbay, however im glad we did as it is a lovely and relaxing place to stay.
Our large air conditioned room (which accommodated 2 adults and 2 children) was $15 per night. The room is tastefully (and modestly) furnished and clean. The rooms are actually contained within a renovated building that reflects a traditional lao residence, with many secluded and quite sitting and relaxing areas.
The gardens are also very nice with several open-huts that are perfect for having a few drinks and a light meal.
The guesthouse also has a kitchen that offers a range of meals which are reasonably priced. The staff and manager are all very helpful and can also organise tickets, transport, tours etc. A traditional laos cooking course is available at the guesthouse, although we did not do this.
As other travellers have mentioned, it is out of town a bit, however this is not really an issue as tuk-tuks are everywhere.
We would stay here again
