Hotels in Laos

Here’s a list of hotel recommendations. We devided them in categories “Backpackers”, “Working Class”, “Movin’ Up” and “High Rollers”. We didn’t list the Vang Vieng guesthouses, because we will most likely reserve them for everybody. Also read Veo’s post about hotels for more information and if you want us to reserve your room.

A lot of information came from these two websites: Lao Hotel and Restaurant Association and Travel Fish and from the Lonely Planet.

> Backpackers (basic, $5-$10)
These are the guest houses that backpackers on a budget stay at. The rooms usually come with a fan and little to no effort to make the rooms look “nice”. That is not to say that they are not clean. Some are. Bathrooms are usually shared with other rooms. I doubt though that they will take reservations so early. If you reserve, make sure you remind them again one or two weeks before arriving and then again the day before you arrive. Otherwise they might give your room to someone else.

> Working class (budget, $10-$25)
These guesthouses give good value for money in Laos. The rooms are simple but clean. They often come with aircon and tv. The warm water showers are the kind where the water is heated by a small electric heater with corresponding low water pressure.

> Movin’ up (standard, $25-$50)
Your mileage may vary in this category. If you find a good one, you get extra comfort and cleanlyness and friendlyness and more effort to give the place and rooms more style, which can really be worth the extra expense. If you’re unlucky, you only get the pretence of more luxury for your extra dollars.
