Located at the southeast corner of the peninsula, Sokpaserd is a Lao-style guesthouse just across the street from the river.

Rooms, which have air-con, windows, tall ceilings, clean cotton linens and an overall decent level of cleanliness, all this being good enough to overshadow the saggy spring mattress and minor issues. It has a box TV, table, chair, mirror, hooks and large bathroom with electric heated shower. And if there was any doubt this is Lao-style and not a Vietnamese-style accommodation, there’s even a no-smoking sign in the room.

Sokpaserd is fresher, cleaner, more spacious and light than neighbouring guesthouse Vang Nam Yen Haung Heung, and the fact that they are the same price shows you what to expect when it comes to Attapeu accommodation. You can always take a look at both before deciding. Both are conveniently placed for some riverside at sunset action.

Our room had minor maintenance issues (leaky pipe, mirror off the wall) that should probably be addressed before throwing money at a whole new building—as of late 2016, they were in the middle of constructing another wing. In any case, we assume that once that is open, guests can look forward to new mattresses.
