We had a good feeling upon walking into Oudomphet Guesthouse—and that’s uncommon when it comes to Udomxai accommodation.

Guests are greeted with a neat row of potted plants, family photos on the wall, a drinking water dispenser with both cold and hot water, as well as free tea/coffee and a fridge with beer for sale. It’s all very tidy and that tidiness extends to the simple guesthouse rooms, right down to the neatly folded blankets and towels.

No frills lodgings.

Rooms are reasonably clean, boasting windows that brighten up the modest space with natural light and some smart touches like the bedside plug. The duvet has a washable cover—a cover or top sheet isn’t always standard for budget accommodation in Laos. The furniture may look plain but there is a handy bedside table, as well as a wardrobe with a mirror and chairs which, if you’re staying on the upper floor, can easily be moved out to the communal balcony facing the temple hill. There’s no grand view, nevertheless, it is a pleasant enough place to unwind since the town doesn’t have many spots to do so. The bathrooms are a typical Lao wet room with western toilet and choice of electric heated shower or cold bucket shower. Its high window brings in some natural light and be opened for fresh air.

Best of all, it is a Lao owned joint and the friendly, accommodating family speak English. Overall the rooms are not flawless but when it comes to cheap hotels in Udomxai, you can do much, much worse. This is a good pick for those on a tighter budget.

Oudomphet Guesthouse is 825m from the northern bus station, a bit farther to walk than Litthavixay Guesthouse or Xaysana Hotel. It’s on the road that wraps around Phu That hill to the Lao Red Cross Sauna. Follow Route 13 (the main road) into town and skip the first road on the left leading around the hill. Instead, it’s take the following left road.
