Sparkling new rooms

What we say: 4 stars

What a delight to see a once dire guesthouse reinvigorate itself with a brand new building and lick of paint on the old building. Set right on the Mekong next to the slow boat dock, Phonevicith's more expensive rooms have terrific views across the river to Thailand. The rooms in the new building are great with sparkling floors, new beds with reasonable quality linen, cable TV, WiFi and a few bits of furniture. The best bit is that they get lots of natural light and because of this they have a very clean feel to them. The old rooms are still quite dark, but not bad value all things considered. There are few eating options up this end of town aside from the attached restaurant, but the 1.2 kilometre walk into town might just be the tonic you need if you've just arrived on the slow boat with stiff legs.
