Inoffensive and better than the most basic in town
Main road, Phonsavan T: (061) 312 454, (020) 2222 8658
Nice Guesthouse is in the eastern end of town near the cluster of hotels and restaurants that most foreigners frequent.
It's incredibly popular and is often full and it's easy to see why. It's an inoffensive place located in prime position of passing tourists looking for a room. But for your money, you can do better. The rooms come with beds with clean sheets and a quilt, tiny hot water bathrooms that require you to hover around the toilet to have a shower, free WiFi and fans. When we stayed there, there were spit marks on the walls of our room which needed to be cleaned, but not all rooms had this lovely feature. The rooms at Lieupi Mixay are better and the same price, but Nice Guesthouse is still a worthy contender in town for those not wanting to stay in the absolute cheapest places.
