Good value old hotel

You step back in time when entering Khammouane Inter Guesthouse with old Escher-esque tiles underfoot and decades-old lounge suites to relax on.
The rooms don't get any more modern, but the value is good, particularly in the rooms with air-con and hot water. These rooms come with minibar, cable TV, a small dresser and although it may seem like an exaggeration, the hardest beds we've experienced in Laos – so hard in fact that we had to check to see that it wasn't a piece of wood under the sheets. Free WiFi is available in rooms on the ground floor and in the lobby for everyone else. Motorbikes are also hired out at great rates, but we found them to be poor quality. Staff are helpful.
