Basic rooms with a Mekong view
When exiting the boat ramp, head right
These rustic thatch bungalows overlook the Mekong below and it's the best feature of the place.
Choose from two types of rooms: double with private bathroom or twin with shared bathroom, but in all honesty you are extremely unlikely to be sharing it with anyone else except the owners' family members. All bathrooms are cold water, squat toilet affairs which could be brighter and cleaner. The beds are basic and the sheets threadbare. You do get a mosquito net and at least you have a TV to watch overly dramatic Thai soaps on. The attached restaurant is your best bet for food in town and the dock is nearby, a minute stroll down the hill.
