Xailuedy Hotel (also written Xayluedy) is an excellent pick for flashpackers in need of new modern rooms.
A polite proprietress greets visitors and the complimentary help yourself hot water and coffee/tea station in the lobby sets the tone. Rooms are neat and tidy, kitted with amenities that make it a step up from your average guesthouse.
You can look forward to rooms with a flatscreen TV, minifridge, towels, WiFi rotating fan or air-con and a hot water bathroom with both a regular and rain shower head. A few dollars can be saved by taking a windowless room, which is exactly the same size, though room with windows receive oodles of fresh air and light.
The hotel is clean, though this is not a backpacker hangout, nor is the location anything special. It’s 650 metres from the Mekong river, and is on the same road as the Tourism Information Office, just 500 metres around the bend. The kilometre to the town centre, which has the night market and a motorbike rental shop, is manageable by foot.
