Khongsavath Guesthouse

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

Khongsavath is popular presumably because of its Mekong river location and it has a good balance of style and value – just the ticket for flashpackers.

All the rooms here are tastefully decorated and the customary hard beds are covered with colourful Lao fabrics. They have poorly lit but absolutely spotless bathrooms, which are wet-room style with electric heated shower. The ground floor rooms at the back are basic, a bit dark and dim with only small windows. The riverview rooms at the front (room #4) and on the second floor (room #3 and #1) are slightly more expensive but it is primarily due to the big windows and extra light they get rather than any decent river views. We found the staff very eager to help. Free WiFi and breakfast is included. Prices for guesthouses on the Mekong are inflated but of the lot, this is one of the few we recommend. Khongsavath Guesthouse is across the lane from The Belle Rive Hotel.
