Phonsavan Accommodation

  1. In Phonsavan I like the Nice Guest House.
    Its cheap $8 per night, has very warm beds, the water in the shower is hot, cable TV from Vietnam. only problem is the walls are thin so you hear everything going on. They also speak English. Its located on the main road into town just past the MAG office. There's off street parking and the gate is closed at night. Tel. 061 312454
     
  2. PHONSAVAN
    Nice Guesthouse

    80,000 kip a night & now with 10% discount offered for GT Riders!
     
  3. Hi David, when I was there in Dec 2008, the young chap doesn't seem to acknowledge the fact that I'm from GT rider to offer me any discount. I even took out the pastic Laos map, but he just ignored that.

    Eventually, I went across the road for another GH for half the price.

    Aha, you have to speak to the sweet female owner. She's the one who offered the GT Rider discount.
     
  5. Sorry no more discount, the owner is in Vientiane & the male staff are no longer as friendly.
    However the Nice is still good value for money.

  6. Balls ! I rocked into Phonsavan at 8.00 PM, checked my tank bag and realised I had left my kindle on the back of the bike in Vieng Thong. I stopped to ask a local if there was a restaurant where all the westerners hung out - no idea, nor a GH where people stayed, no idea, WIFI ? whats that ? Craters was the name I was trying to remember, and Nice GH was the place..

    The GPS sent me to some Maly hotel, "How much ?" 200,000 kip .. err, sorry, I think that too expensive for my budget - there was no way this room was 900B - Suddenly the price dropped to 150,000 kip and a book came out showing me all the other guests and the price paid .. woop! woop! alarm bells ringing .. i was out like flynn.

    After riding around a few places, they appeared closed for the night with no customers, I pulled into the Kemphonelor Guesthouse, it looked like the aquamarine Russian consulate in the headlights.

    They had rooms, in fact, they had a lot of rooms - like an empty hotel. The price was 60,000 kip - great.

    The room was more than acceptable, it didn't have aircon (no need, i guess) but everything in the room was new and hardly used - all the stickers were left on. The room seemed warm when I entered which was most welcome as I was soaked from riding in the rain, the people were helpful, they didnt really speak Thai or Laotian very well - I guess they were Vietnamese. They didnt mind that I dripped muddy water over their spotless lobby.

    For this alone, I recommend them highly, at a decent price - sorry, no pic of the room - but it was way better than most budget rooms in this forum.
