A piece of serenity on Don Det. Beautiful rooms, lovely pool, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and dinner as well. Mathieu the owner will go out of his way to help you book a tour, take you in a tuk tuk to the zip lining over the Mekong. I was booked for 3 days and I stayed a week.

Comparing to your average Don Det guesthouse this hotel looks a lot more upmarket and there are a lot of good points to highlight here. It is only a couple of minutes walk from the pier, huge bonus when you have to walk with your rucksack in 35 degree heat! The swimming pool is lovely and really needed, plenty of chairs and space too. The breakfast terrace has a beautiful view and the food at breakfast is tasty. We stayed in the rooms on the right hand side which I think are older than the main building. The room was airy and spacious, there was a fan and an aircon and both worked well. Wifi connection was also good. Things to improve are as follows: beds by the pool need mattresses and the towels need to be upgraded, curtains in our room had yellow stains, bedside tables and lights should be added. It would be nice to have some shower gel in the bathroom too and perhaps a fan there too for ventilation.

It is the nearest hotel on Don Det when you disembark from the Nakasong ferry... and comparing to the neighboring hotels also the cleanest. For dinner, as the restaurant options in this part of the island are very restricted, we stayed in the hotel restaurant. It was delicious.

Stayed for 2 nights over New Years / Eve / Day Could have stayed another 5 days easily, great location, close to so many eateries and amazing view of the Mekong from the restaurant! The pool was so refreshing on a hot day and the bar was really good too! The rooms were nice and big and kept clean. Only down side for us is the lack of a safe in the rooms and the open shower meant there was water everywhere when you showered. Overall a really relaxing vibe and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We loved our stay at the little Eden - we found out about the hotel in our lonely planet book and were not let down! Big spacious rooms with air con, comfy beds and well equipped bathrooms (properly functioning toilet - which is surprisingally hard to find in Laos!). The pool area is comfortable and has a nice relaxed atsmopshere . The best thing of course is having access to the best views on don det during both sunrise and sunset! Would definitely recommend :)
