Chantimieng Guesthouse is in a fantastic location in Muang Sing, right in the centre of town but also off the main road. When you arrive into Muang Sing, you come to the first criss-cross intersection, and turn right. Walk for about 50 metres, and here it is.
Next to Chantimieng is a rice paddy restaurant, where you have the same view as above. The photo above is taken of the shared area, on the second floor of Chantimieng.
The rooms are reasonably small, but perfectly adequate, with double or twin beds, hot water electric showers and flush toilets. Rooms in the front have wooden opening windows, covered with openable insect screens with views out onto the rice fields in the photo above, and rooms in the back look onto the village.
The price of a room is usually 60,000 Kip per night per room, although during the Muang Sing festival rooms are 90,000 Kip and during other important days rates can be between these two figures.
It is incredibly quiet here at night, with only insects and the occasional snorting buffalo to be heard. The morning scenes are almost always beautiful, with heavy mist covering the valley and then becoming whispy as it rises off the mountains. The staff here speak basic English and go out of their way to try to help you.
