They're all over the place you...

They're all over the place you don't need help. Except for when your in Vientiane but when your there call in to ARDA language centre - ask the tuk tuk driver to take you to blue star disco - my dad used to run it and they'll always lend you a bed. <br/>dunno i stayed free.

uhh, if you really nice they might let you stay free, or they definately would if you can teach english.

Stay at hostels

Hostels in Laos are very good compared to some european counterparts. They very seldom are fully booked and you can just walk in and book a room.

some 5$ a night hotel with no running water in Xieng Khuong and electricity from 6 at night to 6 in the morning.<br/><br/>I'd stay at the SODETOR cabins in Xieng Khuong - went in to have a beer with a visiting American<br/>5 US dollars

NONE!!!! Actually, clean, nice people, cheap - hey, you want luxury, don't come to goddamn Laos

may say guesthouse: luang prabang

It's sparkling spotlessly clean, so clean that one could eat dinner from the floor. there's fan and shower with hot water, and the beds are like all beds in laos... impossibly hard, though they are supposed to be good for your back. There's a also a nice cosy garden at the back. Rooms (doubles) go for 4 $. No breakfast but there's pnenty of places across the road. The guesthouse sells purified water and soft drinks however.

If May Say is too basic for you, try Mano guesthouse across the road. Rooms are more upscale - and you can have air-con and possibly even a TV set. 6-10 $, phone: (856-71) 253 112

Vannida Guest House: Vannida Guest House

$6 for twin room with fan and private bath.

An older mansion with its own character. Has nice garden and large hall. A great place for travellers with children. Rooms are a bit shaddy and beds are too soft.

Mano Guest House. You won't...

Mano Guest House. You won't find this place listed in the guide books yet, they just opened 1 month ago (Sept. 2001). It's brand new! Everything is clean and sparkling.<br/>It was only 200 baht (or $5.00 US) for a double room.

No great views, but you'll have a comfortable bed, fan, hot water, good water pressure, and very quiet ...no stupid roosters to wake you up at 4 am!!

We stayed at the Villa Santi...

We stayed at the Villa Santi in Luang Prabang. It used to belong to the Lao Ryal family. Beautiful French Colonial architecture, small clean comfortable rooms with hot water. Free breakfast buffet. Excellent food! Centrally located. Free airport transfer. I highly recommend it.<br/>Expensive for the area, but still at about $35US, a great deal.

The restaurant and veranda upstairs has grat food.

If you're just passing though,...

If you're just passing though, there are plenty of guesthouses all over the place. If you want to live there, there are likewise plently of nice pads to rent. This photo is similar to the first place I lived in- not 'western nice,' but very Lao- and for $50 a month- in total- very cheap.<br/>For a gueshouse- $2-10.<br/>For a house- $50-200 for the cheapest. But even for $200 you can get a very nice pad. Very nice.

When in Luang Prabang i...

When in Luang Prabang i suggest you stay at one of the guesthouses along the Mekong river. It really is a beautiful relaxing spot. There are several guesthomes located along Thanon Khaem Khong. many may be full so it pays to get there before dark so you can hike along the road, stopping in at every guesthouse until you find one that isn't full.<br/>$5 USD for a single with a shared bathroom &amp; $8 USD for a double with an in room bathroom. there are only 6 rooms!

Lao style dinners often are prepared for her guests.

Vientiane is much more...

Vientiane is much more expensive than the rest of Laos! If you are in Veng Vieng, try to stay at Le Jardine! It is a small cluster of individual bungalows, run and owned by a French couple (and a cute monkey: qui s'appele le merditeur). A lovely place! Even if you don't stay here, come here for a delicious (French) breakfast!<br/>I believe that the price for a bungalow was 40000 kip ($5USD at the time of writing)
