The Lao Plaza usually serves the nicest buffet in Vientiane, though my visits are usually associated with business meetings. It is the Lao New Year, so restaurant choices are very limited. My logic was that as one of the premier hotels in town, they should serve decent food a la carte. My assumption was challenged today when a simple cheeseburger... More

I felt they are trying really hard to be a top-end hotel. The staff is very friendly and tries hard, but you can see they are not very experienced. I found the rooms nice, clean and spacious, internet working fine (although only on one device at a time). The lobby area is nice, and they don't bother you to have... More

I have to confess that the reviews of this place did not fill me with much confidence but the folks in our local office insisted that the hotel was back to its best - and they were right. As 5 star hotels go this one is not in the Premier League, and might even struggle to stay in the Championship,... More

Lao Plaza hotel certainly was not a 5 star hotel. It was clean and comfortable. But imagine my surprise to find that prostitutes were brought in for some guests! And the management seemed to be aware of it.

The rooms were very modern with all the essentials: a comfy bed, a safe, a refrigerator and a clean bathroom. However, they were a bit small, but I don't specifically have an issue with that. I found the breakfast to be adequate, but nothing special. The coffee was just awful, however. In another hotel in Vientiane where we stayed, we... More

comfortable hotel, very cloce to the city centre where you can go by feet. Big rooms and bathroom, the most wonderful thing of this hotel is the food, the dinner provided such a big food choice, with so many fishes, sushi, salmon, and others. There was also some good spaghetti (!!!). The vote is just 4 because it is quite... More

The room was large as was the pool. The breakfast was excellent. The bathroom was dated as were the furnishings. The A/C did not work well, either on or off, no controlling temperature setting. There was construction on a higher floor and the noise began early and went well beyond the promised quitting time of 5PM. The only free internet... More

The hotel is clean and good condition, although not the prettiest of the architecture. The location is ideal, restaurants and most of the attractions are within walking distance. The service is fine, the buffet breakfast is intresting with good blend of local and international. The rooms are good size, clean, quiet and well maintained. The swimming pool is large and... More
