Previously the Blue Hotel, the now Bien Phong Guesthouse remains a good budget option.
The exterior is done up in shades of peach and rose and the hotel is located in what passes for a central location in Son La. They offer up some clean, spacious and bright rooms, with fridges, TVs, and even in-room computers. The staff here are friendly, but speak no English — go prepared with a phrasebook or they'll have you booked in before you can blink.
