The location is great - near the night market and many places to eat. Unfortunately, this also means loud music at night. Food is terrible but the view from the rooftop is nice. Staff members were nice but need to learn to speak some basic English. Had a good massage in the 'spa' on the ground floor - clean and... More

Good location especially for the evening and night where the food stalls on the Mekong riverside, and the next door restaurants are quite packed with diners. Morning jog along the pavement by the riverside is refreshing. Have rooftop restaurant which provide food with reasonable price, and excellent view of the sunset. About 2 to 3 km walk to town centre.

The hotel is substandard. It's value for money. Good location as Mekong Riverside. Good access to the riverfront means an immediate access to the waterfront. City centre of Vientiane is a walkable distance. A lot of outdoor cafes and restaurant at the Waterfront and surrounding area... Amazing view of sunset from Rooftop Restaurant. U don't have to order the food.... More

Hi, a friend and I spent four nights at the Sengtawan recently. I won't deny it's well sited on the river, the staff are nice and helpful (a few utterly daft front desk staff who couldn't use the eftpos if their lives depended on it), the rooms spacious the beds comfortable and reasonably good furniture, airport transfers are free. However!... More

I went to Vientiane for 2 nights as I needed apply for a visa for Thailand. I chose this place as it was reasonably priced, reasonably near to the city center and reasonably rated in the public. As a whole, I was satisfied with my choice, especially thanks to the incredibly helpful staff, yet my stay was harmed by some... More

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

Huge room! fabulous rooftop view. Superb location. excellent service quality. Was there during the boat racing festival and I was shuttling in between the main stretch and the hotel for rest which was very convenient.

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
