Honestly, I wasn't expecting much when we stayed here. This trip was last-minute (like "decided to go to Laos the day before and booked in half an hour" last-minute), and our usual favorite spot was full the first night, so we booked this place with Agoda points simply because there were vacant rooms and it was across the street from...

First I will say this is you everyday basic hotel, a 1.5 to 2 star at best. The purpose of this hotel is only for those who are going to the Thai Consulate for visa business as it almost across the street as there is nothing else around the area why anyone would want to stay there. With that said... More

Considering the cost of the room and that this is a 3 star rated hotel I was quite happy with my stay. The reception staff spoke English were friendly and helpful. The internet provided in the foyer was fast. I did not use the wifi in the room as there is only 2 pin power plugs and the reception did... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice, and both times the stay has been just fine. I booked with Agoda both times. The guys at the reception desk are very friendly, the rooms are clean and the wifi in both rooms I have stayed in was decent enough for FaceTime conversations. I don't understand why people complain so much about this... More

They tried to cheat us since the beginning. We asked for a double bed beforehand but when we got there they gave us twin bed (We had to pay more 12 dollars for the double bed). They also tried to lead us to a bedroom with smoking smell, but we complained and they changed. They gave us another bedroom but... More

This hotel is not so bad.. if you just come to Vientiane just to do your visa, this place can be ok, but don't expect anymore.. the breakfast is really cheap and not so clean.. internet is not slow, it's awful, even in the middle of the night.. ;) etc etc..

Being so close to thai embassy make it a really good option. The room was clean and everything working. Wifi is little slow both in the hall and room. Staff really gentle. The breakfast is not one of the best had, You will find some soup, steamed potato, fried rice, eggs and small sausages, baguette bread, butter and 1 kind... More

cozy little hotel across from a few restaurants and cafes. room was average but clean, no issues during my one night stay, the only concern I had was the burning of a huge garbage pile right outside of the hotel, luckily the smell was averted due to the aircon filtering....the place is rated number 3 in the local area top...

If you are looking for excellence by a western nation's standard, you will not find it here. However, if you have traveled around South East Asia a bit, you have probably developed a different set of expectations for hotels by now... unless you are staying at a place for over $100 per night. For us, cheap, clean, wifi about sums... More
