This hotel was inexpensive and quite comfortable. I paid for a room with a fan as I didn't think I needed air con in December. And i was right, it was chilly. I got a room on the roof which had great views of the Mekong and the local area, beautiful at sunrise in particular. The problem is that it is completely at the wrong end of town, near the old border crossing. I didn't do my research well enough as there is a new border crossing for tourists and its out of town. To get to where most of the eateries and limited shopping are its about a 15 minute walk, not that I mind walking but it may be inconvenient for some. Its a tuk tuk Ride out to the border and it cost me 200 baht from my hotel. It's right on the main road as well so there was a bit of traffic noise. On the plus side the bed was warm and comfortable. And cheap!
