What we say: 3.5 stars

The wide, open entrance is an attractive introduction to this popular guesthouse in the centre of Vientiane. Rooms above the lobby are the most affordable, but the real gems are in the back building and wrap around a beautifully manicured courtyard. All rooms are decorated in a simple but tasteful way and have air-con, hot shower, flat screen satellite TV, and clean ensuite bathrooms with hot shower. WiFi is free for guests, though it only reaches the rooms in the back building. Our only complaint about Mali Namphu is how quickly its prices have risen in recent years, with the budget travellers whose glowing reviews contributed to its popularity now priced out of staying here. The price now moves it into a different bracket with options like Vayakorn arguably better quality.
