Phonsavan

Budget accommodation is clustered on or around the main tourist strip in the centre of Phonsavan.


Main road 700 m east of tourist centre
US$10 to 20
Favanh Mai Hotel
Flashpacker - US$10 to 20
Main road 700 m east of tourist centre
T: (061) 211 555

Phonsavan has several large modern hotels that cater to Chinese and Lao business and the opened in December 2017, Lao-owned Favanh Mai is one of these. With a location on the main street, just 700 metres east of the tourist strip and a walk-in rate that’s a deal, it is worth including. Six-storey Favanh Mai delivers flash comforts and modern Lao hotel style. That means a lift, laminate wood... Read our full review of Favanh Mai Hotel.

Under US$10
Jennida Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
Main road, Phonsavan
T: (030) 941 9990

Don’t let Jennida Guesthouse’s facade put you off—behind the main street storefront of a minimart/Chinese shophouse and through a narrow lobby that doubles as the family’s living room lies a solid modern building. The two-storey motel-style building has 20 rooms, with the doors and windows running along the exterior corridor. It’s a similar setup to Nice Guesthouse except it’s...

Nice Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
Main road, Phonsavan
T: (020) 2222 8658

Phonsavan may lack charming budget accommodation, but Nice Guesthouse ticks off the right boxes to help it stand out from the rest. This guesthouse is often full and it’s easy to see why—especially if you’ve seen some of the town’s lacklustre options. The reception is a storefront smack dab in the middle of the tourist strip, at the intersection with the road to the market. Out back is... Read our full review of Nice Guesthouse.

Pukyo Guesthouse
Midrange - US$20 to 50
56 Saylom Village, 3 km from Phonsavan’s centre
T: (020) 5955 6275

If travellers don’t mind the out of the way location and staying away from the tourist strip, Pukyo Guesthouse, some three kilometres from downtown Phonsavan, is quieter and more relaxing than any guesthouse in town. Most of the relaxation will be done in the backyard, which boasts a seasonal above–ground swimming pool, picnic tables and a sala hut with cushions, hammock and a view over...

Kong Keo Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
Down lane near Phoukham Garden Bus Station and market
T: (020) 2858 5858

The extremely popular Kong Keo Guesthouse attracts a variety of travellers due to its mix of accommodation that ranges from basic dorms to pricier private rooms and bungalows. The guesthouse also has a rustic, casual bar/restaurant/courtyard and a fire in a bomb shell on cold evenings, all excellent conduits to meeting and chatting with other guests—Kong Keo will appeal to those seeking a...

One street south of main road
Under US$10
Sabaidee Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
One street south of main road
T: (020) 9994 8307

Tucked down a backstreet south of and parallel to the main road, Sabaidee Guesthouse has a new lease on life with what appears to be several freshly renovated/newer fan-cooled rooms—once saggy and basic, Sabaidee is now a solid building offering some modern amenities. For a 10,000 kip splurge, the brighter rooms are found upstairs. White walls coupled with large windows that receive ample... Read our full review of Sabaidee Guesthouse.

Just off main road beside Lao Falang Restaurant
US$10 to 20
White Orchid Guesthouse
Flashpacker - US$10 to 20
Just off main road beside Lao Falang Restaurant
T: (061) 312 403

Located just off the main strip, on the busy road leading to the market/Phoukham Garden bus station, White Orchid has been a Phonsavan mainstay since the 1980’s. The exterior of pastel hues and retro balustrade are a blast from the past and though it is no longer in its prime, the owners have done a good job of keeping it clean and tidy. The staff are also well-trained and friendly. That is... Read our full review of White Orchid Guesthouse.

Namchai Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under US$10
One street south of main road (behind Nice Guesthouse)
T: (061) 312 095

There’s plenty of room at Namchai, a large guesthouse just a block south of the main tourist strip, with rooms spread across two buildings. Potential guests can choose from cheap and decent rooms in the older building at the front of the property, the rooms accessed via an exterior wraparound walkway, or there are more expensive rooms within the newer building to the rear. The newer building... Read our full review of Namchai Guesthouse.
