Chao Anou Rd, Ban Wat Chan, Vientiane T: (021) 262 090
In a cream building not far from the riverfront, the dated Phoungchampa Hotel (formerly Intha Hotel) is an okay guesthouse for those in need of air-con and a private bathroom.
The rooms are spacious and have springy beds, a TV, vanity, WiFi and clean ensuite bathrooms with hot shower. Big windows let in lots of light and the wraparound balconies would be a great spot for watching city life below if they had any seating. The detail that brings the room down is the old carpeted floors –- even a deep cleaning could not resurrect them -– and it makes the room feel more drab than it actually is. If you can overlook what’s underfoot, then it’s not a bad place. Rates aren't the lowest around and if you’re looking for a more modern and updated guesthouse in the same price range, try Mixay Paradise, Phonepaseuth or Souphaphone Guesthouse.
