Had a wonderful stay at the Lao Orchid. Spent three nights in the clean property. The staff take great care of this property. The location is perfect for sight seeing and walking around the center of the city. Everything is nearby. Tours/car service can easily be arranged through the desk. The breakfast is nice, and included Asian and Western dishes.... More

Staff was very kind and I bought at the reception a ticket for a bus to Vang Vien much cheaper then from other places. The buffet breakfast was great ( they even had cheese....so unusual... More

We chose this hotel unexpectedly. The result was good. Lao Orchid hotel is very nice and clean. Its close to the market, and Mekong River. Breakfast was good also. The only one point we want to complain is the aircondition. It made noises and we hardly slept. All in all, it was a good stay and we will come back... More

After staying in hostels and some poor hotels, the Lao Orchid was well worth the money. The rooms are clean and very well put together. Service was great. Buffet breakfast was awesome. If you're looking for some recuperation after living the backpacker life, this is a great spot to do it. Also, I could see the night market from my... More

The breakfast was excellent with a good range of continental and Asian dishes. We found the staff very helpful. We arrived very early due to... More

Lao Orchid was the last of many hotels we stayed in all over Laos. It was by far, the best. Of course it was the most expensive, but at $70 USD, it was well worth it. The room had a king size bed, was very clean, a decent bathroom with an actual shower stall. Not many hotels in Laos have... More

I stayed at the Lao Orchid last week for one night. The rooms were super clean and very well maintain. I last stayed here in 2009 and the hotel is still in 1st class condition. Breakfast was good and staff were good as well. And with the Night Market a few meters away the Lao Orchid is a great hotel.

Good clean hotel - decent sized rooms can accommodate a 3rd adult with an extra bed. Location is great - just across the road from the Mekong river bank where the nightly market is setup. Wonderful sunset views with Thailand across the river. Only some rooms, on 4th floor have a side view of the river. Ask for them if... More
