Reviewed 6 May 2011

We stayed 6 nights in this lovely guesthouse and occupied 2 different rooms. They both were really good compare to the price you pay. The A/C is doing a great job, the sheets are really clean, the matresses are good and you have enough space to drop all of your luggage.

The bathroom is a little bit small, but they are all small in Laos, so no worries here. Just accept it :)

Normally we would have left after 4 nights but my girlfriend went ill after dinner in town. Vieng, your perfectly english speaking host, took really care of her. She is one of the most friendly hosts ever. She even re-arranged our transport to Vang Vieng. Also, she really helps you to find the best plan for you and not for her own interest.

Breakfast was included and was good too!

It is a bit out of town, but it takes you only 5-10minutes walk and it's more quiet here.

Room Tip: Book in advance as you will receive the best room

Lovely room, great breakfast. Wonderful gardens to relax/play in and great Gin and Tonics. Bit of a walk from town for our children but this wouldn't have been a problem if it was just us. Only one member of staff speaks much English but she is helpful and they are all very nice. A homely place.

I stayed in the Villa Suan Maak in December 2010 as part of a longer trip around Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. It was probably my favourite hotel as it was full of character and the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. We were a group of 5 and as a result were given the two rooms on the ipper floor of the guesthouse. These were adjoining rooms, one of which had a little balcony overlooking the front garden. The rooms were very specious with lovely (almost Moroccan style) furnishings. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms felt very cosy and homely. The bathrooms were wet rooms which I'm not normally a fan of, but I found this to pretty much be the norm in Laos. The owner of the hotel, Vianne, was absolutely lovely and recommended The Coconut Garden restaurant to us, which I found to serve the best food I have had in Asia so far. i would definately recommend this hotel (and also the Coconut Garden)!!

The staff here are wonderful, especially Vieng, who I think is the owner and is usually at, or around the front desk. Her english is perfect and she can help set up trips around the area and will even call people in other cities to help with accommodations.
We had planned to stay here 3 nights, but added an extra one. The rooms were clean, had AC, hot water, and your breakfast was also included. Free wifi internet and a computer to use. Sure it is not right in the busy area of the city, but it is QUIET. It is only about a 5 minute walk into the downtown area and well worth it in my opinion to have a nice, quiet sleep.
Excellent value for your money!!

I've been there 3 times on a 2 months period and really enjoyed this place. Suan Mark is a bit outside the crowd and the noise of the city center but only 10 min walking from the center. The landlady and her staff are really dedicated, kind and smiling. This is definitely a place to stay if you want to be outside of the crowd. there is no tv, but this is also enjoyable. The last thing is the breakfast, you will take it in the garden and it is excellent and included in the price.
