We had trouble finding information about places to stay in Phonsavan, and finding something at a reasonable price was even harder. We booked here knowing that it was only for two nights, so would have had to have been pretty bad to move. It was just okay (leaning towards bad). Because we were four, we got the "executive" room on the 4th floor (no lift). It had two very soft and saggy beds - which is unusual for this part of the world where beds are usually rock hard. Towels were dingy and old, bathroom was not particularly clean but usable. There was always hot water, but we did notice that whenever one of us had a shower there was water leaking in the nearby hallway, dripping down the tile staircase. Since the last set of stairs is small an steep, it was a terrible slipping hazard and we were constantly being extra cautious. The breakfast was meagre with one egg and some toasted bread. There was never enough butter or jam and you only got one cup of coffee, which is never enough for us! On our second night a french tour group arrived. They were all in their 60s an 70s and were given no help hauling their bags up the stairs to the third floor. The next morning when we came downstairs early to catch our ride, there were people sleeping in the lobby in sleeping bags. For the price, we expected more - even though the pickings are clearly somewhat slim in Phonsavan.
