Hidden down a long private driveway off a busy street in Vientiane. I loved the old colonial character of this hotel and the antique objects showcased throughout. My room was huge, quiet and had an oversized semiprivate balcony. Plenty of hot water and daily maid service. Laid-back atmosphere adds to the ambience. I would recommend.

Our family of five (with kids aged 11-16) stayed here in August 2015... we had been working in a remote part of the country for a number of days and as fun as that was, we were happy to come to a place with hot shower and wifi! Lani's guest house was clean, welcoming, central (we walked everywhere), and excellent... More

Just spent a week at Lani's House by the Ponds and loved every moment of it. Great renovated old house right in the most lively part of Vientiane. Very quiet, considering the location. I had a large room on the 2nd floor, and a balcony. I'll stay there again next time I go to Vientiane!

I really liked this place. Spacious rooms with good facilities at a great location. Not crazy about Vientiane as a tourist destination but Lani's made it comfortable. Nice,simple breakfast. Friendly, helpful staff. Wont be back to Vientiane but if I did I would stay here again.

We spent 7 nights at Lani's House by the Ponds (formerly the Lani Guest House) in October 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay . The house is a classic remnant of colonial Vientiane set back from the road in a lush tropical garden with fish ponds. The Lani is situated adjacent to a lovely temple (wat Haysoke) which adds to...

I stayed with three friends for three nights at the end of March 2015. Lani's colonial character epitomised what we had hoped to find in Laos. I can speak for all of us when i say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfectly located yet set 60-80m from the main road. Staff courteous and helpful. The place itself was... More

We stayed here for a few days over New Year. The house itself was charming, while the rooms were spacious and clean. It has a lovely location next to a temple and an easy walk from Vientiane's main areas. Everything worked as expected, though I did bang my head a couple of times on the mysterious glass bugshield (possibly) inside... More

Actually there're plenty reasons to love this place. I've tried several hotels in Vientiane throughout the year and this is the last one for this year in which I chose to pay more to get better room & services .. but I didn't. Location: Beware !! Some hotel agency may pin it with the wrong location. Please use "Google Maps"... More
