Lani Guesthouse

Classic Lao elegance

What we say: 4 stars

Tucked away down a small lane near Wat Hai Sok, Lani is a beautiful old Lao house with flourishes of antiques and local handicrafts. The 12 rooms are breezy and spacious with air-con, mini-fridge, ensuite bathrooms, and loads of character. The rooms in the main building are the most appealing of the lot, while the rooms in the extension are slightly smaller and cheaper. The lush, tranquil grounds offer a welcome calm while still being central -- the only time the peace is broken is when the monks play the drums. The rustic, charming rooms certainly aren't the best value in town, but Lani consistently gets glowing reviews from guests who rave about the gorgeous setting and helpful staff, plus rates include breakfast, WiFi, and airport pick-up. There’s a lot to love about this charming place, but after years of reviews, we find the high season prices more and more unreasonable.
