Le Calao Inn Review

Fronting the Mekong and just down the street from Wat Xieng Thong is this small hotel, which was resurrected from a ruined mansion built by a Portuguese merchant in 1904. Four guest rooms upstairs open onto a colonnaded veranda to views of the river and the hills beyond. The two rooms on the lower floor are larger—with three beds each—and have private terraces, but are a bit dark. The Buasavan Restaurant on the ground floor serves French and Asian fare. Because of the hotel's small size and popularity, it's highly advisable to book ahead November through April or ask about the owner's similar properties nearby.
