Wood, wood and more wood
Popular Lao Wooden House lives up to its name: The rooms have wood-panelled walls, wood balconies are furnished with hardwood tables and chairs, and even the bathrooms have rich wooden accents.
Surprisingly, this isn't overwhelming. This six-room guesthouse positively gleams with polished surfaces while inviting white sheets and big windows offset the darkness of the rooms. The wooden exterior is brightened by cheerful yellow paint, potted plants, a tiled patio dotted with tables, chairs and white sun umbrellas, and warm, friendly service. The whole hotel is tucked behind a cute – no surprise – wood picket fence. All rooms have air-con, minibar and satellite TV. Rates include breakfast served on the terrace and a small bar opens later in the day. It’s a quaint location, on a small street running parallel to the Mekong River.
