I knew this place from Lonely Planet book. I called the number to ask about price. The guy said 115,000. When we've arrived suddenly the price increased to 160,000. The house was actually nice and set in a traditional style with wooden floor. The garden was beautiful. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was extremely hot (facing west) and aircon... More

From reading reviews of other places I'm not sure if there are many good cheap places in vientiane to stay but the draw back with here is it's a 20min walk either in searing 37 degree heat or down dark dangerous roads at night, which includes having to cross two major roads with no pedestrian crossing. Tuck tucks were hard... More

A lovely wooden accommodation, with a lush garden and lots of places to relax and sit. Hammock, chairs and tables on shared balconies. Our room had a fan and airco and on suit bathroom. We took a Lao cooking class which was given in house by a very nice lady. Only 1.5km from town, so an easy walk. Also possible... More

Villa Lao offer two types of bedrooms, if the ensuite bedrooms with private bathroom and air conditionning are overall OK, we cannot say the same about the standard bedrooms. These latest are not so clean, noisy and offer an access to a dirty and broken shared bathroom. Breakfast is neither of good value and on top of that, the place... More

I had to be in Vientiane for 10 days so I initially booked a standard room on their website. The guesthouse is about 1.5km out of the center. It's ok to walk to the center and back during the day but in the evening, the road to the guesthouse is dark and quiet. There are no restaurants and marts nearby... More

For $30 a night you get a double room with Aircon , en suite shower room/toilet , minibar & a balcony overlooking the gardens . The breakfast included in the price is basic but you can also order from the a la carte menu ( quite cheap ) . The rooms ( we stayed in 4 different ones in 2... More

We stayed at Villa Lao for 3 nights at the end of 6 weeks travelling in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. First the positives: A comfortable bed, a clean room in an interesting old building and a quiet area. Less good: the breakfast, we had many great breakfasts but this was poor, just a reheated baguette, a packet of butter and... More

This place is really beautifull, and people are super friendly. There is a large garden with tables and cute little bungalow to chill. Also few hammacks, with a swimming pool it would be perfect. Note that the standard room have a shared bathroom, but only for 2 or 3 rooms per bathroom. The superior room is really nice and comfy,... More

My husband and I stayed here for three days and absolutely loved it. The grounds were beautiful and our room was spacious and clean, and a killer value. Best of all was the staff - the woman who runs the place helped us rent bikes, recommended restaurants, organized a cooking class for us, and booked our room in Vang Vieng.... More
