Found a good guesthouse in Vientiane (after too many crappy ones), called Chindamay Guest House, on Sihom Road, BanHaiSok. It's west of the strip, just where Th Setthatirat starts. (A Y-junction with a tiny gas-station, where Luang Prabang Rd meets a smaller sideroad). 6 dollar for a fairly new, fairly clean room with nice big bed and the best toilet I have seen for a long time.

The Ekalath still works fine for me every time. Secure under cover parking, huge rooms, quiet, not a high volume back packer turn over hotel.

Does this hotel have an email address guys?

I don't mind ringing the number.. but usually find an email works best when booking rooms and getting a confirmation.

Cheers

Telephone is the only way to get through to them & even that can be a bit frustrating.

Central Vientiane.  Good clean place down a quiet sub soi.





Advertised price of 120,000 kip. Ask for 100k and you will get it.





Secure parking for the bike.



Outside area to sit. Coffee and restaurants nearby.











Cheers

Brian
