Accommodation in Laos
During your trip to Laos you will stay in a variety of accommodation, from a comfortable city hotel, a simple beach bungalow or a night in a rustic jungle lodge. We have selected a selection of authentic hotels with lots of local character and charm. As hotels in Laos don’t always correspond to Western star ratings we have put together some categories to help you plan your trip and know what to expect.
In Style Accommodation – Category 4
Standard Accommodation – Category 3
This category covers most of our accommodation in Laos, from mid-range hotels to small-scale guesthouses. Small-scale charm and a favourable location are the main criteria for this category.
Simple Accommodation – Category 2
When there aren’t many options in the areas you travelling to or the surroundings are more important, our simple accommodation offers modest yet reasonably comfortable accommodation options. You will still have your own room even though the accommodation is more simple than some of our other options. For example, when you do our Luang Namtha trip you will be staying in a simple eco-friendly guesthouse that is situated in a small, authentic town.
Basic Accommodation – Category 1
In this category you really will be going back to basics! If you are trekking in Laos then you will be staying in a local hill tribe hut. You will be sleeping on a mattress on the floor with a mosquito net. The facilities are basic and are shared with other travellers. However, this gives you a real insight into the lifestyle of the hill-tribes and although basic, it really is an experience!
