Photo of Por Boun Phan Guesthouse
Rooms walk out to the upper balcony (yes, there are hammocks) while the lower level has tables, chairs and patio umbrellas to soak up that terrific river view.

The rooms themselves looked fresh and new when we inspected in late 2016. Clean linens, white walls, solid wood floors, new air-con units—we noticed there was still a price tag attached to one cushion. All rooms come with a private tiled wetroom bathroom with hot water shower. A big selling point for a travelling couple or tall folk is that one room we saw had a king-sized mattress, a rare find in Lao guesthouses.

The owner speaks a little English. The price we were quoted for air-con seems steep, especially with neighbour Somphamit Guesthouse’s air-con rooms going for far less. The price is right for the fan room however. If in need of air-con, negotiate a little or try next door.
