Low budget on the Mekong
Ounkham Rd, Ban Vat Nong, Luang Prabang T: (020) 5560 6296, (020) 7777 2668
Along with its neighbour Khongsavath Guesthouse, this is a great guesthouse for those looking for a budget place on the Mekong.
It’s a family-run affair with great big rooms on the second floor that have polished hardwood floors and a more upmarket feel than many of the budget places scattered throughout town. The rooms feature small windows, air-con, free WiFi, bar fridges, tiny tables and chairs and very respectable bathrooms. Rooms on the ground floor are less charming since they have tile floors. Overall, it is very comfortable. The main problem about this place as with many others on the Mekong is price. In the high season, some rooms go for $50 which is a few dollars too expensive for this quality. But during the low season, a room for $30 is more reasonable. The owners are willing to negotiate on their advertised rates and knocking $5-10 off these will get you a pretty good deal. Breakfast is included, served riverside.
