The hotel is situated in a great position right on the banks of the Mekong River out of the city centre. Its great location on the riverfront gives immediate access to the riverside walk, and the centre of Vientiane is a walkable distance. In the evening outdoor cafes set up along the riverside and there is a great choice of... More

This hotel is convenient to access main attachments of Vientiane.Otherwise, I think there is no special than a standard hotel for one or two nights stay.That's all. I marked it as 4 points with 01 bonus point for the Rooftop restaurant, specially when you have a beer there at dust.

Slightly away from the actual center of the Sengtawan is quiet. But you can take free bikes and then they reach the center. The breakfast buffet is simple but they are certainly satisfied. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The room is good (kettle, fridge and care utensils). But at night it is at a reasonable time then quiet.... More

Love the roof top restaurant, day and night. Vientiane is a sunshine city, in roof top can enjoy the warm and wind , see the birds fly on the river. And the brilliant of restaurant line up on the river bank at night time, full of festival mood and enjoyment. Should be an attractive spot to be visit.

This is a very basic hotel, but the location is very good. The hotel lobby is very welcoming, however the rooms are very dated and run down. It was a bit musty, but the air conditioning worked and helped to ease the musty smell, but the a/c was a bit noisy. The hotel was acceptable enough for the one night,... More

Having been to Bangkok and now at Phnom Penh it's plain to see how far the Sengtawan has to go. The bedroom we had was quite large but laid out in a very odd way. We had one bedside table in the right place but the other was on the room. The safe couldn't be opened, there was a coffee... More

Do yourself and the young man at the reception desk a favor and do NOT stay here. I stayed at this hotel only one night in early March 2014 and that was enough. I was completely put off by the attitude and behavior of the young man at the reception desk, who was indifferent to guests to the point of... More
