Diagonally opposite the Phongsali Hotel, in the eastern part of town, the three-storey Viphaphone is notable due to its yellow exterior.

If cleanliness and comfort are your priorities, then there are better options in town. Rooms are large and clean, although the floors in some rooms need a sweep, and have comfy beds and a window with a view. Private bathrooms need bleach – litres of it in order to remove the multiple layers of mould and grime which has built up over the years. The more expensive rooms do come with hot water and Western toilet, however, so it’s not all bad. The cheaper rooms shun the Western toilet and come with a squat version instead. There are much better rooms in town and some at better prices. This should be a last choice, but we wouldn’t be surprised if you somehow ended up here anyway due to its prominence on the main road.
