It's big place near Dongpalan, many rooms have a door directly to central yard with parking place and there are some shrubs and trees by the rooms. We stayed in this place for second time in 2009 and I cannot be very happy about its declining quality. Somehow we liked it a year ago when it looked much better - with no broken pipes and ceilings, without notes on the walls and there wasn't that moldy smell of linen; at that time we paid 60 000 KIP for a room with private hot shower and double bed. It's still the same price.
Additionaly to lower standard comparing to year ago we now see more karaoke girls there and mafia style guys with cars no ordinary Lao can afford. Did we got to wrong place? Staff looks a bit lethargic, they seem tired all the time. It doesn't feel dangerous place, though... guests with 'their' karaoke girls won't pay attention to you.
Unique Qualities: Of course, low price has it's 'price'... but if you are modest with your needs, you'll be fine. Since there are no screens on the window, expect mosquitos.
