Tel: 856 71 253 888's insider take:

The restored 1957 Mercedes sedan that picks you up at the airport only hints at the colonial grandeur awaiting you at 3 Nagas. Expect four-poster beds draped in mosquito netting in the hotel's 15 rooms, which occupy a pair of century-old mansions just a few minutes' walk south of Wat Xieng Thong. Once home to a royal courtier, the newer (1903) building holding rooms 8–15 is quieter, and has views of the auberge's private garden and the Nam Khan River, a Mekong tributary. All of the Wi-Fi–equipped quarters average at least 450 square feet, with vaulted ceilings and Indochine flair. Handmade soaps and shampoos are another nice touch, but the bathrooms need a good renovation.
