Still a good budget choice
What we say:
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.

Not bad at all.
I stayed here in December 2007. My room was quite comfortable, and very good value at 50,000kip. It was reasonably clean, and the staff were good enough to let me park my motorcycle in the foyer overnight (which meant riding it up a 4'' plank after I had drunk a LOT of Beerlao!). The craft shop is really good, but I had to do quite a bit of shouting to find somebody to open it! (Still, I had to do quite a bit of shouting to find somebody to book me in to my room!) Not the Ritz a perfectly acceptable place to stay. Interestingly, the staff don't stay in the place after dark. Maybe the ghosts of the two Malays bother them!
