The Khamvongsa is a throwback to another era. It's a blend of Lao and French colonial stylings--dark woods, white walls, ceiling fans--and it oozes old fashioned elegance and atmosphere. Staff were as courteous and professional as one would expect in such a place. Breakfast also matched the quality of the setting. The food was well prepared, nicely served, and delicious.... More

Beautiful stylish hotel, nice dining room, great breakfast, clean comfy and large rooms. Comfortable and cozy beds. Nice washrooms. Easy walking distance to night market and other restaurants and sights. AC a bit noisy. Could hear the traffic from the front - if that bugs you get a room at the back.

Good quiet location, walking distance to most-visited sites and restaurants. Clean, somewhat basic but comfortable and a good value for the $. No special frills, but attentive and helpful staff. We had one of the loft-type rooms with a good view on the 5th floor with ample family space.

Y thing it's good value for money in Vientiane. Big rooms with a nice decoration and a good bed. I was in a single room and had a desk and some armchairs in the room. Wifi was working quite good. For the sunset and the nightmarket on the Mekong river you have only to walk a few minutes. Only for... More

We stayed during the passing of 2015 and we were happy we chose Khamvongsa. It is at a great location, a few minutes walk to the Mekong overlooking Thailand's sleepy Sri Chiang Mai town. Our room is on the second floor on the back. It provides no great view but is quiet. In fact the bland street out the window... More

This place is very nice. The French-colonial decoration style really embellished its charm and beauty. The reception was helpful but they seemed a bit giddy when ask about anything. It is close to Khong River and a five-minute strolling to the centre part of Vientiane. The room was small. Cramp if you prefer a decent living-space so I would say... More

Although this is the only place I stayed in Vientiane, I'm confident it is good value for money in the city. The hotel has a very charming colonial feel, the rooms are spacious and clean, the bed is huge. I suppose it is all a bit on the basic side (bathroom in particular) but for the price it is more...

We stayed here two night, the place is very clean, the room is very spacious and I love the interior like colonial style. The breakfast is good you have 4 types of dishes you can choose. Pancakes, croissants with yogurt and fruit, eggs with beans and toast and the other one I think is a soup, plus tea or coffee... More
