Lan Kham Guesthouse

Family-run, but overpriced

What we say: 3 stars

Lan Kham Guesthouse is a good little family-run guesthouse just across the road from the Mekong River and the multitude of restaurants that sit along the banks. The look and feel of solid wood when you enter this guesthouse immediately points to a quality establishment and this is carried through to the bedrooms which are tastefully decorated with local fabrics. Bathrooms are still Lao-style wet rooms though and the rooms are smaller than we'd expect from a guesthouse in this price range, but they do come with satellite TV and free WiFi. Rooms #222, 299 and 289 on the second floor are the best as they have a skinny balcony overlooking the road and a partial view of the river through some trees. The thing we couldn't get past was the price which was quoted at $45 – the same price as Mekong Holiday Villa which we highly recommend. If you’re having difficulty finding accommodation, this is an acceptable place but one that is overpriced.
