Despite its faded appearance, big Douang Deuane hotel still has life left in it and the rooms are good.
The very large rooms aim for comfort over style with clean linens, TVs, air-con, safety box, mini-fridge and plenty of functional furniture such as wardrobe, bedside tables and luggage stand. The attached bathrooms channel an old school hotel vibe, but that means you get a huge countertop and a shower/bathtub combo with a shower curtain. Most of the rooms have a private balcony and, as this is one of the taller buildings around, the higher floors offer great city views. Rates include a simple breakfast and WiFi in the room. All in all, if you don't mind the big building feel, the spaciousness of the rooms, central location and included amenities make Douang Deuane one of the better value spots around. We have seen similarly priced guesthouses offer far less. For a flashpacker, it’s a worthy pick over a guesthouse. Solo travellers get a discounted rate.
