stayed there for 3 nights. the room was pretty and they provide bottled water. nice matress, soft pillows and quilts are there if you need them. the staffs were very friendly and ready to help you with good advices.
located between Wat Nong and Mekong river so you will be near to almost everything in the old town.
the only drawback was the sewage issue in my room. its was not obvious at the first time but after a while i can smell it even when the bathroom was closed. i have asked them to put something to absorb the odour but seems that they forgotten. the next day i got cold and runny nose so it might be the reason i could bare with the room. the third day, just before i checked out, the toilet clogged up.

me : seems that the toilet clogged up.
staff (after she checked the toilet) : ok, we will fix the toilet for you
me : fix it for me?
staff : yes, we will fix it for you. you may pay it for 80.000kip
me : what???

of course i did not pay.

the place, the atmosphere, the staffs were good, but, never stay in the first floor except you got runny nose.

Overall, this is a reasonable place to stay, though I agree with many other reviews that I read that say there are cheaper places to stay which are equally as nice. $30 a night is quite a lot. As with many places in Laos, the rooms do not get cleaned, bins emptied or towels changed, even after several nights stay. Breakfast is fine, the location is excellent. Only one or two staff speak a little bit of English and we found that only one person has the key to the safe, and if they're not there, you can't access your things! To be fair, they did come that same night and open it for us, but for 4 hours we had little money on us. Apparently this is also common in Laos. Overall, it's fine, and they are friendly, and the location next to the river is the best bit.

"Highly recommended"

Stayed with a friend in a twin room for 6 nights. Staff are very friendly (though English is not so good). Met a woman there who had been staying in another guesthouse previously and moved to this one after checking many others. The location is very convenient - an easy walk to both rivers, the main street and night bazaar, and with lots of restaurants nearby.
The daily cleaning of the room was pretty sketchy, and the room itself was quite small, but the whole guesthouse is quite clean and new and we really appreciated having a separate, modern shower enclosure in the bathroom!
