Fodor's Expert Review Saysong Guest House
Vangviang, Vientiane Province, Laos
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This is one of the cheapest deals in town, with an unbeatable riverside location. The three rooms facing the river have extras like TVs and minibars, and the bungalows have air-conditioning. The ordinary fan rooms, though, have no views and are quite spartan. Book well in advance, especially if you want a river-view room. Even in low season, this lodging is usually fully booked.
- excellent location in heart of town
- river views from some rooms
- super value
- cheaper rooms dark and very basic
- west-facing rooms get very hot in afternoon
