Strange rooms with bucket flush toilet

What we say: 3 stars

Just across from Phonethip on the corner at the top of the hill from the immigration office, Gateway Villa Hotel offers old quirky rooms with bucket flush toilets and strange beds in some of the rooms. At least the bathrooms have hot water. Some rooms come with old TVs, fridges and all have free WiFi. We particularly don't like the thin cardboard-like walls which do nothing for privacy. On the plus side, breakfast is included as is a great view of the Mekong from the communal balcony. This place needs a bit of a spruce up before it becomes competitive with the other guesthouses in town.
