What we say: 3.5 stars

The rattan bungalows here at Phou Iu Guesthouse 2 certainly are charming and the prices are currently much lower than in years gone by, presumably due to the recent sharp decrease in tourist numbers. Hut floors are tiled, there's a squeaky old mattress, a fan to circulate the warm air and a decent hot water bathroom with Western toilet – you even get towels! Tours and treks can also be arranged here and this might be the deciding factor for some. Each of the bungalows looks out across the lovely garden and is a real selling point of this place. Peaceful, cheap and charming. Check it out.
