Arrived after a long bus journey. Was pleased to get the last room. When I checked in, the bathroom was filthy and the room itself had seen better days. The mattress was old and worn. Would definitely not recommend staying here. No idea why Lonely Planet recommends this guesthouse in the first place?

While I didnt expect too much from literally getting in late and jumping into the closest tuk tuk to find a place, Syri wasnt too bad. While you cant really find staff anywhere when you want a Laobeer, its still decently clean. Fastest wifi I've had in all SE Asia so far though, so thats something!

Prices are pretty good, but the rooms are not great. You can do better for this price at a better location (go a little more south, near the river). Worst bed in asia (and there are quite a lot of bad beds around), almost impossible to sleep more than one hour straight. Can't tell why the lonely planet mentions this... More

Wow, never stayed in such a crappy place,my partner will say I'm a spoilt westerner, but couldn't wait to get out, 1 night stopover was all I needed, it has given me a measure of what quality is, the whole place needs a makeover, new paint job, new Lino,the staff were very polite kind people, if you're a backpacker wanting...

We arrived late at night and as most other places were full we decided to stay here as it was in the LP book. The room looked clean on first inspection, however after a proper look we soon discover the bathroom was filthy, hairs everywhere and grime all over the sink and floor. We knew we would only stay one... More

Friendly staff and has the feel that it was once a grand home before they opened it up to falang. I stayed in a twin room which was huge. I agree with others who say the place does feel a little worn but it was pretty good value for Vientiane. (100,000Kip) Close proximity to everywhere you need to be, decent... More

Pros: Lots of charm Welcoming, friendly staff Good atmosphere Quite location, but still close walking distance to main street Reasonably priced A local bowling alley is round the corner, so a nice change. Cons: Felt a little unclean (stains on bedding and grubby bathroom)

Nice building with lots of room types available. An ensuite double room with A/C was 100,000 kip per night. The shower in the room was good and the laundry service was quick. Quiet location about 5 min walk to the main streets.There is also free wifi.

The room first looked clean and spacious. On the first day I saw one cockroach in the bathroom which is acceptable. The second morning, there were two dead cockroaches on the bedroom floor. Ok. Then in the evening there are three living ones in the room. I called the receptionist and asked for a spray. I sprayed the place and... More
