Take the time to wander down Vientiane’s back streets and small lanes and you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find beautiful, quiet spots, old colonial homes covered with bougainvillea, crumbling walls and tropical gardens.

Photo of Auberge Sala Inpeng
Auberge Sala Inpeng is one of those pleasant discoveries. Behind a picket fence in the heart of the downtown core is a little “village” of typical traditional Lao houses, raised solid wood bungalows with a front porch. This kind of hotel is a rare pleasure in Laos, especially in Vientiane.

The bungalows are surrounded by a peaceful, manicured leafy garden providing you privacy from the outside world. Your room feels like your own little cottage. All rooms have rattan furniture, air-con, solid wood floors, fan, mini-fridge, mosquito net and basic tiled ensuite bathroom with hot shower. The included breakfast is served on your front porch, a pleasant spot with table, chairs and bamboo shades that you can roll down. The popular economy rooms are quite small and do not have a TV but with a low-season rate of US$25, it’s excellent value. Superior rooms are a little fancier, with more space, a bigger bathroom and extra finishings. To top it all off, staff are very sweet and kind and do try to help.

Auberge Sala Inpeng is located across from the new Makphet restaurant location, the lane across from Wat Inpeng. You can access this lane from Quai Fa Ngum, or from Chou Anou or Khunboulom St. With only nine rooms, book well in advance if you want any chance of snagging a reservation.
