This is the worst hotel that I've ever stayed at in Asia and I've lived in Asia for many years!!! The rooms are extremely dirty, the bed has bedbugs, coachroaches, ants, milipeads and rats are everywhere. The staff are both stupid and rude and couldn't care less!!! I'd sooner sleep at the bus station than endure another night there! Didn't...

Room was shoddy. Dirty bath and no hot water. Kids throwing a ball at our room till late at night. Staff were unfriendly. No one warned us about the 'massage' parlour next door. Don't go. It's a brothel. The hotel is basically used as a Sex workers office. Just avoid. Especially for the price too.

agreed we got there late at night but what a shocker. No taps on the shower so couldn't get clean after long bus journey. Terrible wardrobes and dressers, useless TV and very average bedding. Stayed one night and was anxious to get out early in morning.

Actually, Mekong Hotel is in Thakhek, not in Savannakhet! It is the one, which is also recommended by lonely planet. That's the reason why we booked a room at this hotel. However, our night at the Mekong Hotel was absolutely horrible!!! We knew that we would reach Thakhek after midnight and therefore booked a room via agoda.com at Mekong hotel...

The only room available was a big corner room with two single and a double bed @ 120'000 kip. The room itself was pretty shabby. Moldy walls, the floor a collection of ripped lino, the badroom in desperate need of a cleaning. The double bed was unusable. The 2mx2m mattress was just springs without any padding set on a single...

The Mekong is OK for the price, it's very old and very dirty, the location is the selling point right on the Mekong river, and very close to the Thai embassy, there is a restaurant on site, but is not owned by the hotel itself, Basicaly the hotel is a short time hotel, lots of ladyboys and other sex workers...
