Don Khong Guesthouse
Fair value rooms, great food
What we say:
This popular choice right next to the passenger ferry ramp is a decent option in town with large rooms. The rooms come with or without air-con, have attached bathrooms with hot water showers and Western toilets and the top floor rooms have wonderful communal balconies. WiFi is available in the restaurant which also serves up perhaps the best food in town – everything we have tried over the years has been excellent. The owner is a friendly lady who speaks English and French quite well. Air-con rooms are perhaps a tad expensive, but the fan rooms are a bargain.

Very good choice!
Spacious, clean rooms, now in 2012 high season 120.000 with aircon and 80.000 w/o. Very friendly owner who seems to offer reliable advice. Very good food at the restaurant at the river Mekhong. Lovely athmosphere! Located directly at the ferry port.

Agree with above regarding cobwebs, but a couple swishes with an old towel and they're easily gone. Nice to have hot water for a change, as on other islands this is not available (or at least I didn't notice any!). Food was pretty good, Lao cocktails were great! Had a look at the place across the street the 'planet praises and it was dumpy in comparison, staff and clutter lying all over the place. We paid $7 for a large double. This was my second stay there and I'd stay there again.

We stayed in a large double room which also had a single bed in it for $6. Other rooms avilable were $5 or $7 (hot water). Rooms were in need of dust (huge cobwebs) but were otherwise clean. The owner quoted extreemly high prices for transport but was friendly and helpfull. The restauraunt food was ok but nothing special.
