About Us

For Apple1

      Apple Guesthouse offers quaint, personalized & friendly 10room accommodation in the heart of this unique UNESCO heritage city, just behind the main tourist street & two doors from the mighty Mekong River & its varied restaurants for all budgets. A short walk will get you to the major attractions; temples, restaurants, tourist information, tours, & morning & night markets are just around the corner. Rooms are spotlessly maintained; many in teak, which is the traditional Lao style. All have air-cons, fan&free Wifi, LED TV with CNN, BBC&HBO. The two superior rooms each have their own private balconies overlooking the quiet streetscape. One superior double room has a fantastic brand new private bamboo porch creating a stylish romantic atmosphere. This’s good for smokers as smoking is only allowed outside the guesthouse. A large triple room is very useful for a small family or if you are a group of 3 with a Queen & a king-single bed. Our family room is very spacious with 2 king-size beds and roomy. The common balcony upstairs overlooks the alleyway’s activities, where you can sit and enjoy free tea, coffee, cool water & magazines. It’s a popular place for people using the free WiFi.
