The Maylyn guesthouse is in a lovely spot down by the river. The wooden bungalow on stilts we stayed in was small and basic (with a quilt that smelt of many of the previous occupants' sweat, and roaches in the bathroom) but very pretty. It had a lovely balcony facing right on to the river. It's supposedly in the quieter end of town, although were kept awake by the thumping sound systems of the bars on the nearby island until about 4am. That racket was then replaced by another - a cacophony of cockadoodledooing and mooing and braying from the many surrounding farms. That said, it was pretty good value for less than 6 quid.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a budget guest house/mini eco resort.We are on the edge of a village our rear faces towards the Karst mountains. We are located next door to the beautiful and expensive Vieng Tara Hotel. We have a variety of rooms some are simple basic timber frame and bamboo bungalows for people who want a more authentic SE Asian experience and we do have more conventional masonry rooms for those who need them. The main appeal of our place is the location, the views and of course our Garden which at times is full of butterflies. Early wet season is best for the butterflies. I recognise that we may not be what everyone is looking for but many people love us.. ... more less
