Sunset Guesthouse

Comfy rooms and local charm

What we say: 4 stars

Sunset Guesthouse strikes a great balance between aesthetics, amenities and value. Rooms are side-by-side in a stilted structure and stylish elements like exposed brick distinguish them from the rivals along the river. Furnishings go beyond the basics and rooms have chairs, reading lamps, and reasonably comfy beds with locally-made cotton linens. En-suite bathrooms are very clean with Western-style toilets and hot showers. The long balconies have padded chairs, hammocks, and unobstructed river views that are, as the name suggests, spectacular in the evening. The on-site restaurant offers some of the most interesting and traditionally Lao dishes available in town and, if it's working, offers free WiFi which just barely extends to some of the rooms. The owner speaks English and French fluently, really cares about his guests and is a great source of local information. This place is slightly more expense than the basic options in town, but it is ever so slightly better.
