I do not know if I was lucky in having a good experience, whether others are too fussy or it was the fact that I was with a Lao guide. This hotel has a main block and a set of three wooden chalets – I stayed in a chalet which I had no complaints about. There was a very good mosquito net, although I am not sure it was really needed. The en-suite was a wet room so of course you had to make sure items such as the loo roll were out of the way. There was plenty of hot water from a gas boiler (instructions for use in Chinese). No TV. Ground floor just a couple of steps up from the parking area. No fridge. Fan but no A/C - in Feb this was not a problem.
The restaurant is a big open veranda overlooking the Mekong and the elephant park on the opposite side. Two of us sat there for much of the evening talking, drinking and eating a little but unlike some comments the prices seemed to be reasonable. We were not hassled to buy anything we did not want. Nice place to have breakfast.
At night large gates to the hotel are locked so reasonably secured from people outside. I would stay in the chalet again.
