This could be a very nice place to stay. We checked out a few others in town and this was definitely the best choice. The location is superb: elevated, so great views, and a nice garden. The room was ok: clean, spacious, balcony, fridge. We were told there was wifi in the room but that was not the case. Even... More

Not in walking distance to town, but town not worth walking to. An excellent base for visiting the Plain of Jars. Spacious clean rooms, bathroom fine. Staff friendly, few spoke English. Very good breakfast selection. Have order dinner well ahead, but it was quite good and one could await dinner with a well made G&T on the West facing dining... More

Considering its location to the Plain of Jars, this hotel was better than the nearby guest houses. The room is spacious but lacking in decor, lighting, quality of bedding, bathroom was dimly lit, very low water pressure, door gaps at the bottom were wide enough for insects and possibly creatures to enter into the room. Hotel staff were friendly and... More

It is in an impressive position on top of a hill, but up a rather bumpy track. The design of the hotel and rooms is very good, but fixtures and fittings let the rooms down. The beds were hard, had overstuffed pillows and the shower in the bath was next to useless due to poor water pressure and inconsistent temperature.... More

This hotel has so much potential but needs a good leader. There was no information at all about the hotel or the district available in the lobby or in the very basic rooms. I think the town is new to tourism which is a shame because the plains of jars are very interesting. The staff are clearly not happy and... More

We stayed here for two nights in order to see the Plain of Jars. We had a two room suite which was comfortable with exception of a very hard bed. Water pressure in the shower was barely adequate. We had no problem connecting to the internet although it was slow. Service was ok - we did get a hello from... More

The Vansana is a modern, comfortable hotel about a 15-20 minute walk to the main street of Phonsovan. The hotel has a shuttle and tuk-tuks are available, so for us this didn’t turn out to be a problem. We stayed here two nights in late November ‘13 and ate dinner in town one night and at the excellent hotel restaurant... More

We had one night here to visit the Plain of Jars. There are very few hotels around and this one seems to be the best for Westerners. The hotel is on the top of a hill with good views all around. We visited in the cool season and at 06.00 it was 10C - had not realised that parts of... More

The hotel provided a decent place to stay in an area where there are only a few options. The staff didn't make any attempt to make you feel welcome just got on with their jobs and ignored the guests. Food was very mediocre and wifi virtually non existent. The room was fine set by small garden plots. The hotel is... More
