“Nice place to stay and quiet - excellent choix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

If you want peace and quiet away from the noise this is the right hotel. It's only 10 to 15 minutes walk to "downtown" which I did everyday. The Hotel is facing the Mekong river. My stay was from january 1st to january 5th. There is a very nice swimming pool next to the restaurant where you have breakfeast in the morning. There's also a computer room with high speed internet. If you have an iphone, blackberry or personal computer, you can have wi-fi internet to your room with no charge. Staff is great like anywhere in asia. Lundry is available and done in 24h delivered to your room. There's also connecting rooms if your more than one couple. A free shuttle is available from the hotel to the airport.

First, be careful about hotel names - so many of them are quite similar! For example, this is NOT the "Riverside Hotel." This one is part of the Vansana Hotel group, and they sometimes refer to it as the "Vientiane Riverside Hotel." But I believe that most booking services will use the name listed here.

It is a typical "western-style" building, rather large compared to its neighbors. But it features a pool, lounge, big rooms, etc. I had a corner "suite," with two rooms, and a balcony with a view of the river. The room was a bit out of date, style-wise, but It is it is a great deal for little money.

But best of all (for me), it is far enough away from busy streets to be quiet and calm. Sitting on a unpaved road along the river, I found it to be a perfect location. If you walk about 20 minutes, you'll be close to the main tourist area.

The staff was quite friendly

This new green brick may not look too inviting from the outside but the spotless rooms and friendly staff make it very comfortable. A few doors down from the Beau Rivage and not to be confused with the Riverside Hotel this hotel offers some refuge from the noise and bustle of town. Fantastic riverview rooms are around $60 with breakfast. Bargain hard as there is also a new hotel nextdoor. Very good restaurant.
