we stayed 6 days here and it was fine. hot showers and okay wifi, not the best. housekeeping was great. bummed because i left some clothes outside to dry and someone snatched it.. lesson learned. the location is great! you can either go to the Old City or Bazaar easily. we walked everywhere. great stay! would come again.

Very convenient location. Close to the markets and a 10 minute walk to the old town. We never needed to use taxis or tuk tuks. Really helpful and friendly staff. Lovely big room and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

If you like to sleep in potentially hazardous and unsanitary caves, the rooms at the Thapae Boutique House are for you.

Shortly after a surly receptionist had checked us into this shabby little hotel (neighbouring a loud construction site), we lugged our heavy bags up 3 flights of stairs to find our "bedroom."

The front door took a big push because it was taped down with duct tape - which I was later informed was in attempt to keep mosquitos out - sure. But we huffed and we puffed etc etc. And we made it in.

Slumping onto the bed I immediately smacked my back on what was an inch of foam, atop a wooden board. Our "mattress", ladies and gents.

So that's comfort out- let's go for cleanliness..

The walls, thick with dust and squashed insects, were the next highlight. In fairness, we could barely see the critter graveyard due to the room's lack of windows but the seedy motel circa 1963 vibe still wasn't really doing it for me.

There were several holes in the plaster of the walls and ceilings, which in one area had helpfully been covered up with a band aid. "Dirty or clean??" I hear you cry. Well, my friends, we didn't stick around long enough to find out.

We talked to another receptionist who helpfully informed me that all of the beds were "thin and hard" but that she would move us to another room.

Lugging the bags back downstairs with a strength that almost matched her eye roll, we tried again.

This time we were welcomed into yet another dank cave, this time complete with blood stained pillow cases, filthy bedspreads and an assurance that "they don't usually have problems with stealing from the rooms." If that doesn't give you the vote of confidence, I don't know what will.

Heading back down to complain again, we skidded across the muddy, water-logged lawn, back to our charming friend in reception.

Having been at the hotel for under an hour, we requested a full refund, which we were denied. After much arguing, they graciously agreed to take a quarter of our total payment for two nights, as a "booking fee" for our "stay." We left the hotel and checked into Vieng Mantra, a fabulous place about 10 minutes' walk down the street.

Advice from two weary travellers- if you'd rather spend your afternoon after checking into a hotel in the bar or at the pool, as opposed to identifying the bodies of long forgotten insects and furiously typing words with inverted commas into Trip Advisor reviews in order to satisfy your rage- do yourself a favour and give this one a miss!

Stayed here for 1 night $31

Pros:
-quiet and away from the main roads
-friendly staff
-walking distance to tha pae gate, restaurants, night bazaars and few places of interest
-aircon was good

Cons:
-towels provided looked old and overused
-bed was very hard and felt like it was collapsing when we sat on it
-teak flooring squeaked with every step we made
-shower head was leaking the whole night
-water pressure was too low and not easy to tune to the correct temperature for showering. Either too hot or too cold
-walls are in need of repainting
- too cramped as the distance between bed and tv is too near

This is a nice small quaint guest house style, convenient location, limited on street parking. Inspect the room first, they are all different, mine was a bit small, but nicely appointed. There is a small cafe on site.

Room tip: Take a look at room first, quaint but a bit small
