Nam Ou River Lodge
Next school close to bus station T: (020) 5537 9661
This is a top little place built in April 2012 located just down from the bus station which as a result of its handy location is often full.
It's a two-storey concrete structure containing rooms top and bottom which all share a communal balcony overlooking a quieter section of the river compared to most. The design of this place is totally different from the basic bamboo huts you'll find elsewhere in town and is a great choice if you're looking for something a little more modern and more able to keep insects out. There's no WiFi and it is a bit of a walk into town, especially if you want to eat on the other side of the river, but these are the only negatives of this place – oh, except when the owner gets drunk with guests and simply can't be bothered showing rooms.
