The Sala Done Khone Hotel offers different categories of rooms and they're spread around a bit - the location of all is good though, close to some nice restaurants, a little mini-market and local travel agent. The pool is reasonably sized and nice and the room we had was quite large, very comfortable and clean. Definitely recommended!

We stayed in the house across from the river and it was a french colonial antique! The floor tiles were from the early 1900's and still in amazing condition, huge room and bathroom. Extra side bed (would be great for a family of 4 even). Very clean, amazing landscape around the house. Quiet and romantic, perfect for honeymoon treat.

Living in a houseboat is the only reason to stay there. You can sit in the verandah just looking the water, fishermen, boat traffic. Rooms in the hoseboats are not bad, however old fashioned. Do not expect deluxe rooms, you have better choices on the island. Other and better accomodations exist at Sala hotel, but not on the river. The...

Large room, hard beds, no drawers or hot water. Good base to go around. Did not go in pool as it looked dirty. Restaurant right on Mekong river so beautiful view. Had lunch once and food was good. Staff polite but extremely limited English.

The islands are a haven for backpackers, and Sala Done Khone standard rooms would be considered luxurious. However we were not backpacking and hated the first room we were given; dark room with non functioning AC and a smelly bathroom. One email to the tour company got us an upgraded room. Much better. The hotel occupies a number of houses...

I believe that some of the rooms in the old hospital building are very smart but those in the little floating bungalows are not. However, the sheer beauty of the location, sitting on quite comfortable chairs on your own veranda a couple of feet above the fast-moving Mekong, gently moving with the passing boats makes up for the basic standard...

I stayed in their floating studio, something I was really looking forward to from the time I booked it months ago. The room they gave me was simple and basic at about 80 USD a night, not cheap for a village on an island in the Mekong. However the experience of it, the surrounding beauty and the whole vibe of...

We stayed three nights in a floating studio and ours was the last on the row. Room was very simple but spacious enough. Bed was most comfortabe. There were no space or hooks to hang clothes and occasionally there was "the smell" specially in the bathroom. Entrance was not so safe and definetely not for disabledor small children. The house...

A French suite in the colonial French building we stayed was a total contrast to the less of Don Khone vibe and character - but that made a unique experience in our opinion! It was fun and adventurous to go out in the sun by rented bicycle through fields to Li Phi waterfall and beach. Got a bit of sun-burnt...

Location was great, if you tell the boat driver from Nakasang that you are staying at Sala Done Khone he will drop you off right at the stairs of the hotel. We took the room on the river which was very unique experience especially the one night it was raining. The room had a private pool which was never clean...
