Located on the Mekong River on reclaimed land it is very close to the centre. There are a number of restaurants nearby and if you like walking you are 15 minutes from most... More

I have stayed here several nights for business. Plus point: luxurious hotel, impressive design and very comfortable. Large & clean room, quick service are another advantages. It is close to the riverside street which have many good restaurants and bars - really important if you want to enjoy nightlife here, because in other places they close very early ~7-8pm!!! But...

The hotel is very central and close to many restaurants and bars. The staff is very kind and the hotel is clean and cosy. The swimming pool was also very refreshing. We are very satisfied with our choice.

I love Laos and Don Chan was suppose to be the best in Laos. The hotel really need renovation because all the furniture and electronic is so out of date. I really hope they will do something about this because the place have so much potential.

Not the best of experiences I had so far, especially considering the services one would expect from a Hotel that boasts of a 5 Star rating. Huge bulky furniture, out dated wall papers, considerably far from the Downtown central areas and the room service needs an immediate chin-up. I was having trouble connecting to the Hotel Wi-Fi and this guy,... More

The results obviously is still mixed. One the hardware side, the room is small and bathroom is smaller. The desk, bed, and other furniture in the room are getting old and... More

Stayed a night. Luxurious and overall comfortable but not quite deserving of a 5 star rating it claims. Asked for a little ice and gave me a bucket of ice and charged me 24000 kips for it. Other hotels would have provided it as a service. Booked the airport shuttle and it didn't show up. They had to scramble a... More
