Souannavong Guest House
Pleasant family-run spot
What we say:
The Souannavong is a small, family-run guesthouse with a central location two blocks north of Saint Theresa Church in the middle of town. A true guesthouse, the lobby area feels more like a living room with its couches and TV, and WiFi works well throughout the building. Rooms are all a bit different so you might check out a few -- the larger upstairs rooms, though well-kept, have a lived in feel while the newly renovated air-con offerings downstairs are small and some have windows only facing a hallway, but they're fresh and clean. All rooms have TVs and basic hot water bathrooms. The only downfall here is that staff can be difficult to find -- more often than not the lobby was unattended during our stay. To their credit, however, staff are friendly and genuine when you do find them. The guesthouse also rents out motorbikes and bicycles, but at time of writing the latter were extremely rundown so we'd look elsewhere for wheels. For rooms, though, Souannavong is a solid budget choice by Savannakhet standards.

We stayed here for a night in Jun 10. It was heaps better for the price than any others that we looked at on the street. The bathroom was clean, the aircon worked and the family running it were friendly and nice. For 60,000kip it was definitely good enough.

We arrived in Savannakhet in the middle of the night and the lady of the house opened the doors to take us in She didn't even charge us the first (half) night! The rooms are basic but clean and big. The upstair rooms have cable TV and aircon and are better value than downstairs. The location is also very good. All in all great value!
