Comfortable and stylish
There are two sections to Sokdee Residence and both are well priced for what they offer.
The newer building out front offers a more luxurious stay and this one fills quickly because it’s comfortable and stylish. Each room in the new building comes with air-con, cable TV, immaculate hot water bathroom with separate shower, in-room safe, WiFi, elegant hard wood floors and glass doors that open to a little semi-private terrace with seating. The cheaper rooms are simpler and have similar features but don’t feel as special, mainly because it is older and has tile floor. Breakfast is included. Sokdee Residence’s pleasant location is on a small street a block up from and running parallel to the Mekong. It’s directly across from Lao Wooden House.
