Clean, central, flashpacker friendly
97 Pangkham Rd, Vientiane T: (021) 212 263 F: (021) 261 395
Located right beside Mali Namphu, we’d choose Phonepaseuth over its more upscale neighbour just for the overwhelmingly friendly, polite and attentive family here.
This guesthouse makes you feel like a five-star guest, a refreshing welcome compared to many of the zombie-like receptions we’ve experienced at other Vientiane hotels. Phonepaseuth's prices have remained consistent over the years.
The rooms are simple but clearly have been well-maintained and are still comfortable with clean sheets over springy mattresses, solid polished wood furniture, vanity, cable TV, in-room phone and attached wet-room bathroom that is new, sparkling and clean. They even upgraded the standard electric heated shower with a rain showerhead. Some rooms are better than others, and you pay accordingly. Rooms with a balcony over the road are light and airy, while some rooms don't even have an exterior window. It's definitely worth paying the few extra kip for balcony rooms #201 or #301. There's a computer in the lobby for guests to use and drinks for sale. Free WiFi in the lobby and breakfast are included in the price. A top flashpacker pick.
