Don Khon doesn't have the quantity of accommodation Don Dhet does, but it does have a good selection of places to stay across a wide range of budgets. As with Don Dhet, if you are staying in cheaper accommodation that is not very secure, it's best not to leave anything of value in your bungalow.
Auberge Sala Done Khone is a sensational property and easily the best on either Don Khon or Don Dhet. There are a number of different completely different styles of room here, but our favourite is the glamourous restored French colonial building across the road from the river. Inside this wonderfully lit building are high ceilings, stunning old tiles, fancy chairs and all manner of old world... Read our full review of Auberge Sala Done Khone.
This is a wonderful guesthouse located about a kilometre north of the French bridge. The cheapest rooms are located right on the river with a huge communal balcony connecting them. They're wooden affairs, but they amazingly come with hot water which is almost unheard of at this price anywhere on Don Dhet or Don Khon. The expensive rooms are across the road with no view, but do have air-con. This... Read our full review of Pa Kha Guesthouse.
The bungalows here at Kham Pheng Guesthouse face the river and have views of the fantastic Si Phan Don sunsets. The most expensive bungalows here really are something even though they are basic – think solid wood floors, pristine beds and sheets, and a clean cold water bathroom with Western toilet. The best thing about them is that they are bright and breezy with the window and door open. You... Read our full review of Kham Pheng Guesthouse.
If you're looking for a riverfront bungalow, but don't like how basic they all seem to be, Pan's may well be the solution. Each room is a massive wooden and rattan structure, virtually air tight, meaning fewer bugs and allowing the air-con to cool the room effectively. The bathrooms have hot water showers, wash basins and Western toilets and are extremely clean. Each balcony comes with a couple... Read our full review of Pan's Place.
Seng Ahloune is a luxury bungalow resort set right on the river next to the French bridge. The bungalows are spacious and come with tea- and coffee-making facilities, large fridge, air-con as well as modern bathrooms with hot showers. The verandas are more refined here than those on Don Dhet and sitting on a chair is a more common pastime than lounging in a hammock. The nightly rate includes...

The rooms at Somphamit come in three different styles – old rattan, new wood or rattan with hot water and air-con. The cheapest rooms have wafer-thin walls, but they're also a good bargain with great river views. The newer rooms are set back from the river, but are slightly more modern than the cheapest. The most expensive rooms don't face the river, strangely enough, but do have hot water and... Read our full review of Somphamit Guesthouse.
