The hotel is run by a beautiful family who was so helpful and kind. The food is not included but it is very affordable and available at their restaurant. It was absolutely delicious! You must order mango sticky rice here. They make it the traditional way (everything mixed together instead of separated) and it is to die for! We ordered it at every meal. With every meal we continued to say mmmmmm!
Our room had a huge bed overlooking the mekong river. The bathroom was slightly bizarre as the shower had no separation from the toilet so everywhere got wet. There was many ants and geckos in the bathroom. The wifi worked well, but was best at the restaurant.

The guest house was centrally located for walking, bicycling or boating. The room was fairly basic but clean, with two beds and washroom with a toilet and shower with hot water. You can change money at the front desk. It was all I needed.
The guest house also operates a restaurant directly across the street, and right on the shore of the Mekong, which provides great views of the river, the far shore and a few of the 4,000 islands in the area. The food was fine, the beer was cold and inexpensive, and the staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged a longtail boat tour that included a stop at a smaller island.

Room Tip: See if a river view room is available. Even if it's not, the guestroom restaurant across the street provides great views.

The pick-up is great as you can ask them to pick you up anywhere. The restaurant is the best in town and all the food was great, from typical asian food to western kitchen. The included breakfast is also excellent, with fruits, homemade bread and good coffee. We had one of the two rooms with river view and the room as well as the bathroom were rather big and very cosy. Ac and fan both included. You can also book boat tours to Don Det/Don Khone and buses to nearly everywhere.

Room Tip: If possible ask to get one of the two rooms with river view.

Room a fair size, but another small bathroom - so small you can shower whilst sat on the toilet!

Meals are taken across the road - with fabulous river views.

If you can spare a few pounds more, move up the road to their sister establishment, Pon's Hotel - not only great river views but also a very welcome pool.

Spent one night here while travelling. Good and cheap room with AC, clean bathroom with hot water, WiFi and all you need at that low price. Great location in front of the river, they also offer tasty and low cost food.
