We were really disappointed by the place. Dont get me wrong, we have an idea what can be expected in laos but it seemed that nobody cared a bit about the place. We have seen much more value for the same money. First of all, our booking was not registered. Yet, we were shown to a room which was spacious... More

The family who runs this business is so kind and helpful. This is a local place so don't expect air conditioner or luxury bathrooms but something great for backpackers who are not to fuzzed about accomodation. Laundry service abd beers at a local rate. Good wifi and views to the river.

The non-aircon bungalows are basic and a little grubby but not awful. There was no mozzie net in my bungalow so I finally got to use the one I've been lugging around with me! The shower was 'cold' but certainly not an issue in October. The owner is friendly and gardens pleasant and peaceful. There are however cleaner and better... More

I rocked up with a tuk-tuk driver at 2 AM and after ringing the bell and calling the office, one of the staff members opened the gate and showed me to a room. I had already tried to find another guesthouse at that time, but unlike this one, they didn't make an effort to take one more backpacker in at... More

I'm sure there is probably worse, but my husband and I (both seasoned S E Asia budget travellers) have never come across any accomodation as poor as Sedone for the money paid. The mattresses were thin and basic (but clean enough); there was no bottom sheet on the bed, but we were provided with a blanket; the electrical points sparked... More

The thing that brought us here on that first day in Pakse is being on the riverfront, having come from the south Mekong area, but the location is pointless and actually quite poor. There's a loud barrage of music directly behind the rooms, which thankfully ceases sometime around 10. They have (two) great open courtyard(s) with... One bench and one... More

I'll start my review by saying two things: 1) I have an incessant knack for finding redeeming features in even the most basic service & accommodation (hence, I very rarely give 1 or 2 stars) 2) I have absolutely no patience for those who travel on a beer budget (like me) yet expect a champagne level of comfort... ...but I...

This place is basic, but really beautiful compared to some of the boring/sad hotels inside the city. There are some disadvantages so this will not be a place for everyone, but we really enjoyed our stay here. + nice garden + friendly family managing the place + English speaking management + a lot of space to relax in the garden...
