Still a good budget choice
River road, Sekong T: (038) 211 039
Despite its echoing corridors, proximity to public radio speakers, and reputation for being haunted, the Sekong Hotel has a lot going for it.
It has a selection of restaurants across the road and is about a five-minute walk to the central market. Supposedly visited regularly by two Malays who died on the river, in years gone by we've got the creeps in this place – or was it one too many Beerlao? The rooms here have a bit of character and have been upgraded in recent times and now usually come with hot water. A small restaurant is on site, but the restaurants across the road are far more popular. It's a good budget place and the rooms do catch a good amount of light. It's probably the pick of Sekong for backpackers and the best rooms would suit even flashpackers.
