“Clean, cofortable but too many rules”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Clean and comfortable, we paid for the room with the lot, others we saw at the hotel looked a bit claustophobic. Breakfast was average at best. Cofee tea and juice available for most of the day free. Staff friendly and helpful. Too many rules, ie no guest to your room or else fined and evicted. No food to your room or fined. Mark any sheet,towel etc fined. Five minutes late for breakfast or afternoon tea, bad luck you miss out. Coffee after 5pm on the dot,no longer freeThis could so easily be a great budget hotel but administration needs to become more flexible.

They sell overpriced bus tickets - vientiane to nong khai for almost 50k kips instead of 15k kips on bus station.

Rooms are clean especially bathroom but very small with no space for belongings. Instead of desk they could equip a room with some shelves.

I just stayed here for one night. Location is perfect. Rooms are nice but small and can be loud (ear plugs work great). The breakfast is very basic (eggs, toast, jam and and fried rice) but does the job. Staff is super helpful. As a single traveler it was a bit over priced.

This hotel is ok and the rooms with window and bathroom are actually a good value, compared to the other options around in Vientiane. The staff was indifferent, but not unfriendly at all. The rooms were very small but clean. It's ok for one night or two.

One of the newest and cleanest 5-storey guesthouse from the owner of Mixay Guesthouse near, at the next street.
Pros: It's new (looks still new at May 2013), well managed and clean. Good option between of mostly old, cramped and sometime partially ruined hotels and gh of riverside of Vientian.
Breakfast is a good option.
Cons: a bit pricy, and often fully booked. You can find cheaper, but not better.
Tooooo much ridiculous "do and dont's" stickers with messages everywhere. :)

Room Tip: Check your rooms before booking. Not all rooms there are the same (some noisy, some without windows...

I had 1 single room with fan. It's clean and nice. The bathroom is also clean and wide. It's quite cheap but an amazing ones. The breakfast is better, the best among other hostels I stayed during my trip to 6 countries in Southeast Asia. But they took some time to reply my email for booking confirmation. Overall, I'd like to stay here again next time.

Booked this one and managed to get a pretty good deal after having looked round about 15 other hotels. It was clean, although there was a smell from the drains. One thing that did ruin the place was the amount of notices warning you about various fines.
