Simmaly looks nondescript from the outside and even we had our doubts about whether checking it out would be worth our time, but inside are surprisingly modern rooms that will please most budget travellers.

Rooms are plain, with beige walls, a bed, a floor fan and an ensuite wetroom bathroom with hot shower, Western toilet and a mirror. Everything looked clean and in decent shape and the price is right.

WiFi is available and the owner speaks some English. Each room has a window but it faces the semi-outdoor corridor so natural light is limited. On the upside, there are security bars on the window so you can feel secure if in need of fresh air.

Simmaly has a central location on Road 16, right where local buses to Pakse pick up/drop off and across the road from the central market. It’s convenient if relying on public transport as it’s an easy walk to the eats and Jhai Cafe.

Savanna Guesthouse has the edge in terms of comfort but it is a little bit away from the main strip. Travellers counting every dollar can save a couple here.
