A friend and I stayed at this guesthouse for 3 nights and loved it. The staff are friendly and caring. Our room was very charming with beautiful dark wood, a fan, fridge, hotpot and view of tranquil garden behind the property. The breakfast buffet was lovely with several choices, fresh fruit, eggs, pastries, baguettes and yogurt. It was very reasonably priced and just perfect. The internet was better than in many other places I have stayed in Laos. Several reviewers commented on the chickens. Yes, there are chickens and roosters around the property and yes, they crow early in the morning. Just be prepared. We turned on the fan, had earplugs and a noise masking machine and slept just fine. We had to move hotels a few days later and got away from the chickens but then had traffic noise. We wished we had not moved. I would take the chickens any day because this place is lovely and a great deal.
