Lan Anh Hotel

Surrounded by rubble

What we say: 3.5 stars

If you have to stay in Muong Lay then don't worry — despite its surroundings, rooms at the Lan Anh are comfy and welcoming. But call first to make sure it's still standing: on our last visit it looked to be partially demolished. The diminishing number of rooms are set around what was once an attractive courtyard but is now home to rubble and old mattresses. The more expensive rooms are in wood built blocks and are full of character: wood panelled walls, four-poster beds with pretty mozzy nets (yes, you'll feel like a princess), fridges and comfy beds. The deluxe rooms have double beds and bath tubs in slate lined bathrooms but standard rooms only have twins and shower bathrooms. There's no air-con though — it would be pretty impractical given the gaps in the walls. Cheaper rooms with shared bathroom are available in the building above reception — they're tiny but have the same comfy beds and the bathroom's adequate. Staff is friendly enough and, given the lack of alternative options, the food does the job.
