Gateway Villa Hotel
Old facade but updated interior

Just across the corner from Phonethip, at the top of the old immigration office/boat crossing ramp, Gateway Villa Hotel offers rooms with hot water bathrooms and Western toilets.
The hallways are quirky and some of the twin beds share a platform. A few rooms come with flatscreen TV, fridges and all have free WiFi. We don't particularly like the thin cardboard-like walls which do nothing for privacy. On the plus side, breakfast is included as is a great view of the Mekong from the communal balcony.
