Guesthouse Name: Oudomphet Guesthouse.
Address: MXQM+7W4, Muang Xai, Laos.
I stayed at Oudomphet Guesthouse in Muang Xai, Laos. This was a last minute booking as I found myself back in Muang Xai unexpectedly after a brief visit to Boten. Most of the cheap guesthouses in Muang Xai aren’t bookable online, so I just picked this guesthouse that was marked on my map. I paid 80,000 LAK ($6.30 USD) for a night.
Not many tourists visit Muang Xai so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a room. The reception staff had no English, and I had no Lao, but that is no problem for such a simple transaction as booking a guesthouse room.
I got a double room with a private bathroom, and my room was on the corner with two windows. The bed was comfartable and the room was cool enough with a rotating ceiling fan.
The room had simple wooden funishings and everything was kept in good condition. There is feee wifi here, and I had a good reception in my room.
The bathroom was of the basic Southeast Asia variety with an instant hot water system.
There is a little common area outside the rooms on the first floor.
There is no breakfast service here, so I went to a nearby Chinese breakfast place. I got the staff to order transport to the train station, which is about 3 km away.
Overall this was a decent guesthouse in Muang Xai, especially for the budget price. There is no online booking here, and addresses aren’t very useful, so just look for it on Google Maps.
