Initial impression was very positive. Lovely exterior, great common area room downstairs and lovely terrace looking over the Mekong. $50 seemed to be excellent value - which maybe it was. The room was nice - all dark teak-wood - but the bathroom was a complete disaster. Bath / shower design was a joke - nowhere to stand up. Both the...

We found this little guesthouse by chance and stayed for 4 nights. We really enjoyed the view from our balcony - we could see the Mekong from our bed! Ask for room 103 which has windows on 2 sides. :-) Staff was just perfect, very clean, 1 min from That Xieng Thong. Very good value for the money.

Never wanted to give a bad review. In 5 months of travelling, TripAdvisor has served me well on both Hotels and Hostels. However, for the life of me I can't understand how this establishment is rated so highly. I had booked last minute, wanting to spend New Years out of a hostel and with a double bed. At 70$/night I...

The Mekong Charm Guesthouse has the potential to be so much better than it was when we stayed there in Dec-14. It has nice views of the Mekong River, but the guesthouse itself has lost some of its “charm”. Our room had the following issues: - the floor was dirty, - the duna cover was dirty and had clearly not...

We stayed there for a few days and had no major complaints about anything. The owner and staff are friendly though at times language was a problem. We had a deluxe room overlooking the Mekong and that was worth it. Typical of the country, the bathroom was basic, the bed was hard as blazes, but still not The hardest in...

This place faces the water on the Mekong side of the peninsula. The public areas are well mantained. The balcony room was large and simply furnished. The linens were clean but a little tired. The bathroom was a little weak - the shower was standing in an old tub with a shower wand. A/C worked great. Breakfast was tasty with...

Getting me to leave a room before my scheduled time is something of an accomplishment. I've stayed in places with all kinds of problems before without issue. But the Mekong Charm guest house hit all of the sore spots to send me packing 3 days before my original departure date. The guest house is located along the Mekong river bank,...

The hotel is a beautiful hardwood building on the riverfront that may be enjoyed from the balconies or the veranda downstairs. Our room had a comfortable bed, a minibar, wi-fi, and a bathtub. The hardwood means the room can be dark, but that was fine for us as we got a really good night's sleep. It's a family owned establishment,...

I don't normally write reviews, but this place impressed me. The Mekong flows in front of the house. The house itself has an elegance, which seems to have been lost to us. And the people working there are interested and interesting. The cost of board is so low. You won't regret staying here.

Our room was fantastic value- large, clean and nicely furnished- especially for the price. The host was friendly and helpful. On our first night though, the power went out in our room, so the aircon stopped working and I had an awful sleep as it was so hot. In the morning they tried to fix it but it they had...
