Too many GHs to choose, but not so many GH we can recommend. Management is usually bad. Most of them are run sown. Most GHs charging similar price with similar quality. Most rooms are double. Single rooms are very few. Simple rooms without bathroom cost d30,000kip, with bathrooms d60,000kip+. Many have at least 1 HW shower.
The best valued hotels are high class ones. With $50, you can stay at the first class hotels.
