The Oloffson, Port au Prince Haiti.
Foreign Correspondent's Club, Phnom Penh Cambodia (a bit expensive)
Bright Lotus Guesthouse Phnom Penh Cambodia (near the FCC and way cheaper)
Xieng Kok Resort, overlooking the Mekong River, Northern Laos: price 50,000 Lao Kip or about $4.80 per night (they recently raised prices... I paid about half that...you might try negotiating when you get there, but still a good bargain at under $5)
The Medan Hotel, Banda Aceh Indonesia (yes, they finally moved the huge boat that was deposited in the parking lot by the tsunami). With so much foreign press and so many aid workers, it is generally full as it is one of the only places with "western" facilities.. It's kind of like a run down, dirty Motel 6...but hey, it's a place to crash and it's right downtown. If full, try the place next door...a bit cleaner. Both places will set you back about $20. Also check with NGO guest houses in the the area, that might let you stay...otherwise you're looking at cold bucket showers and an asian loo othewise known as a "squat toilet".
Carlito's for an incredible steak, on the plaza, Trinidad Bolivia.
