The Sengkeo Guesthouse is a budget Laos hotel a short walk away from Vang Vieng’s busy town centre.
Good points about the Sengkeo Guesthouse
The Sengkeo Guesthouse is one of the cheapest places to stay in Vang Vieng which now has more mid range and expensive accommodation than it does budget accommodation suitable for people on longer trips around Asia looking to make their money stretch further. Booked online its cost $11 to $12 USD a night for a private double room with en-suite bathroom, which is slightly less than you would pay for a bed in a dormitory nearer the centre of town. If are looking an affordable option in Vang Vieng and staying in dormitories isn’t your thing, then the Sengkeo Guesthouse is good choice.
The Sengkeo Guesthouse may not be right in the town centre, but is well located in terms of being the major tourist attraction and local transport:
- Vang Vieng South Bus Terminal is 350 metres walking distance from the Sengkeo Guesthouse.
- Walking Street is 550 metres walking distance from the Sengkeo Guesthouse.
- Tham Chang Cave is 1.4 km walking distance from the Sengkeo Guesthouse.
The other thing we liked about the Sengkeo Guesthouse is that its a peaceful place away from the noise of Vang Vieng town centre.
Rooms at Sengkeo Guesthouse
The six rooms at the Sengkeo Guesthouse are located within a long thin building facing onto a large garden. Each room has its own entrance leading directly into the garden, which leads onto a major road which runs north toward Vang Vieng town centre.
The rooms at the Sengkeo Guesthouse are 12 sqm including the bathroom. This enough room to walk around the bed. The rooms have a bed, a light, a fan, a wall mirror and some hooks on the walls to hang clothes. They are basic but comfortable enough as a place to sleep for the night.
The bathrooms at the Sengkeo Guesthouse are compact. Everything works and the showers have hot water. They are what you would expect in relation to the quality of the room.
Facilities at Sengkeo Guesthouse
The Sengkeo Guesthouse provides fairly good free WiFi in the rooms. The other amenity is the tables and chairs on the balcony outside the rooms facing onto the garden. The rooms are not great to sit in, but the balcony is nice and somewhere you could sit and have a drink in the evening with friends if you are travelling in a group.
The Sengkeo Guesthouse also has a restaurant which is run as a stand alone business called the Kapphet Vegan Restaurant. The restaurant gets quite a lot of trade as it is the only vegan restaurant in Vang Vieng. The menu is Laotian dishes and a few international dishes minus the meat, eggs and milk.
