    Laos Vientiane cheap nice hotel

    Phetmanyxay Hotel is on Mahosot Road near the morning market, it's about a 500meter walk to the Mekhong river, fan rooms from 300baht and aircon from 450baht and up, nice and clean and quiet.

    On the 3rd floor is a free self serve coffee and tea area, they hide the coffee in the afternoons though, nice seating areas there on the 3rd floor aswell.

    The bad points; unbelieveably they close at 11.30pm, yep if you aint back in time then your going to be sleeping on the streets of Vientiane, anyway as I passed out in a drunken stupor at about 6.30pm it didn't make a lot of difference to me.

    All the rooms have tv's, they supply you with towels so thats something you don't need to carry if your doing a visa run, couple of tiny bars of soap, and a satchet of shampoo, also a couple of free bottles of water, all in all a pretty good deal.



    Nice comfy bed.





    Bathroom has a proper toilet and hot water shower.



    As I was leaving I wondered what this was.



    Now I know why there wasn't an ashtray and ended up using an old coke can.



    Contact details.
    Phetmanyxay Hotel,
    186/1 Mahosot Road,
    Ban Sisaket, Unit 11,
    Chanthabouly District,
    Vientiane,
    Tel; (856-21)263 351

    I stayed there last night, only because I wanted to boast to my children when I get old that I once slept in the same hotel that Mr D dog stayed at.

    Its a reasonable place, now 640 Bt a night, clean enough, freindly staff and good location.

    I think 350baht is their cheapest room, the cheapest air con room was 450baht, I assume that was tiny though, then they have some at 600baht, didn't look at them though.

    Hey DD, I was trying to find a map for this hotel and came across these maps which are he best that I have seen, thought you might be able to use them somewhere.

    According to the above map this hotel is number 200 is quite away from the morning market. Have they located it correctly on the map?

    PP - did you just turn up or book ahead? If you booked ahead do you have an email address for them?

    Just turned up MM, there is plenty of accom in Vientiane, and I think there were only 3/4 others guests in this particular one.

    no worries, will do that - I was surprised that the mali namphu was fully booked.

    Do they do airport pick ups?

    Well at the recommendation of DD and PP I stayed here last week. Crap location and average room I thought.

    Paid the $6 from the airport and organised for another $5 for him to pick me up and take me the 8km to the southern bus terminal the following morning for a 7am bus to Lax Sao.

    They wanted Kkip not US dollars so said I would pay them later. When i went to pay them the next morning upon check out he told me I had already paid ad it took a fair bit of convincing from me to make him check his records for which he almost fell over himself in gratitude as I guess it would have come out of his wages.

    The rooms were an ok size, the bed was a brick, the sheets threadbare the shower awful but for the price I guess it was ok

    As I type I am staying in a much better place but can't remember what it is called.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Locations OK but I like walking so near the morning market and a 15 min walk to every where else.

    Heres you chance to drop the "used to"

    640 Baht a room is like nearly 13 now so no this isnt cheap at all, and it does indeed look like a pretty crap room. And lets not forget this is Laos.

    since when could you rent a room in the UK for 13 quid as night?
    Last time I was in NZ I got a motel in Christchurch which is nearly as sleepy as Vientiane about 10 Km out of the city centre about 130 dollars a night and the bastards charged us extra for each kid and my Mia Noi.

    yeah it is hard trying to keep up with the antics of Mr DD all the time!

    Norton, you are correct - in fact I am just about to go off and have a look at the latest on that thread now!
