Tai Lu Guesthouse
Attractive old guesthouse
What we say:
The Tai Lu was the first guesthouse in Muang Sing and has one of the most attractive exteriors. As the name suggests, the building is Tai Lue style, ringed by a balcony and with wooden detail that has been painted in several different colours. Rooms are along the front balcony and are very simple yet charming with rattan walls, mosquito nets and passable hot water bathrooms. The owners speak great English compared to many other Lao people in town making getting what you want all the more easy. The restaurant underneath is the best in town so you won't have to walk far to get your meals. Prices are pretty good here, but you might be able to shave off a few thousand kip in the low season if you bargain hard.

Finally, superb Lao food
Did not stay here but, seeing that the restaurant always had diners while the others were empty, the choice was obvious. A friendly mom and pop place with ready smiles and good recommendations from the Lao menu serving food that Laotians will readily eat and do cook at home and not fine tune for tourists. Even the sticky rice was good on its own! Ambience was 'faded Laotian' ie dusty floor, crumbling wooden doors, a pet here and there, but overall its what goes in your mouth that ultimately matters...
