Golden Lotus Guesthouse
This is a very nice little guesthouse with only a few rooms. My room to the front was spacious and clean. It had a comfortable double bed, TV with lots of channels for relaxing after a hard day sightseeing (or watch football games at night), and a well sized bathroom.
The other great thing about the guesthouse is the location. It is just off Sisavangvong Road, opposite of Wat Mai. The morning market is actually outside of the guesthouse, and I could look at the market from my room (no noise issue either). The night market is literally a 1 minute walk away, the night food market is 3 minutes away, and lots of restaurants and bars are all nearby. You really cannot ask for a more central location.
The staff is the final advantage of the Golden Lotus – they were always trying to help, provide recommendations, and also enjoyed a chat with the guests.
