“Good value, nice rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Stayed 2 nights at the end of my Laos trip. Clean, comfortable room, bathroom also ok. Wifi works even great in the room. No problem with the staff, but they seem pretty strict. Very central, many great places to eat around and the mekong is not far.

This could be a nice place to stay in Vientiane but the owner is unbelievably rude. When I didn't leave the key at the front desk when I went out to eat, they charged me lots of money as a fine. When I refused to pay, they called the police. I spent an hour being interrogated. The owner and the police wanted a bribe to go away. These are nasty people. Be careful if you stay at this hotel and they will keep your passport if you do something that they do not like.

This is my first trip to Laos, so I booked here on a recommendation from my nephew's friend. Location is close to all the major sites including the night market. I stayed three nights in mid-Feb. Good value for 22 USD w/o breakfast. WiFi works great, actually faster than at Hanoi and Hoi An hotels on my current trip. A/C also works great. The hot water was the disappointment of my room.
Guest house is adjacent to restaurants and pastry/coffee shop, my room is on second floor. Woke up to first to smell of smoke (from burning garbage?) and then fresh baking. Can not remember seeing fire/smoke detectors in the place. Don't use contact link on their website to book as they never responded, use the email them directly. Front desk staff are not very out-going so you have to initiate any discussions on getting tourist information including a MAP from them.

Rooms are good value, however the staff are ridiculous, they are completely inflexible and wouldn't allow a friend to sit in the room and wait for his bus that left at 6pm(he'd stayed the night prior in the guesthouse himself), then sitting in the lobby where no one else was watching a movie on a laptop at half volume we were asked to leave. You are much better trying one of the other guesthouses around which are of exactly the same quality and value.

Stayed in a double room for two nights at 170,000kip (usd 22) per night, without breakfast. Big room and clean. Hot showers too. Very prompt at email reply. TV reception was relatively clear compared to the other guesthouse I stayed. There is a total of four storeys, was lucky to be given the second storey. Rooms are along a corridor, if you get rude neighbors, you may be disturbed by some door slamming at times. Don't expect much from the receptionist, the interaction was purely transactional than friendly. But no complains with this price. You can get a taxi at the airport at 57,000 kip. The tuk tuk to the airport, hailed near the guesthouse, was settled at 40,000 kip after a bargain.

We really ended up here by chance, looking for a comfortable room where we coukd find some rest, after a long journey.
The staff wasn't so talkative but the room was clean and spacious, good bathroom with hot water and there was a safety box as well.
Quite quiet also - we spent a really good night there.
It may not the be the cheapest option (170,000kips for the double) but definitely not the most expensive in Vientiane.
They also arrange for you a pick up for the airport by taxi for 65,000 kips , which is a bit expensive I guess.

Stayed for two nights good size room very clean, quiet and well located to everything only one thing that needed some attention and that was the air con. Each time I would switch it on black soot would come out, the unit is in need of a good clean or maybe replaced. I think the room I stayed in was number 306. Would stay there again on my next visa run.
