White Orchid Guesthouse

Hotel wannabe

What we say: 3 stars

Opposite Nice Guesthouse just off the main drag through Phonsavan, White Orchid feels more worn and busted every time we visit, although at the prices charged it's not like anyone can lodge a formal complaint. That said, for a hotel that had its heyday circa 1987, the owners have done a good job of keeping it clean and tidy and the staff are well-trained and friendly. The room pricing policy seems to be dictated by the size of room and all have cable TV, new bathrooms and double beds, but we recommend they employ a different tiler next time – a hodge podge of tiles whacked into the wall, some off-kilter. It's a strange place – a budget guesthouse trying to be a hotel and that feeling comes through in the rooms. That said, the cheapest rooms will do for a few nights and the staff will look after you if you have any problems. Changing money, booking tours or just getting travel information can be done at the front desk.
