Khammouane Inter Guesthouse
Good value old hotel
What we say:
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.

Seen better too!
In Laos you expect mattresses to be hard, plumbing to be dodgy and wiring to be suspect, but my room stood out in all three respects with a table-like bed, a toilet cistern that dripped water all night and bare metal next to the light switch that gave me an early morning shock.
In its favour, the guy in charge was friendly and spoke good English, the location was good (not that there's much action in central Tha Khaek but there was karaoke next door...) and it was cleaner-than-average.
Prices are up by 10,000kip across the board but still decent value given the lack of alternatives in town - not a patch on what you'll get in Luang Prabang in same price range though.
