We stayed here with our 8 year old daughters in March 2012. We re-located here after a poor experience at another Vientiane hotel.
The first thing that stands out about this hotel is the service. We arrived one evening, looking for a place, with 2 young kids in tow, looking rather disheveled. The front desk staff immediately brought us drinking water, and reviewed our options. Then they actually took us to see two different rooms, and gave us our choice. We felt the rates were very reasonable, given the quality of the hotel.
I did not catch the name of the young Vietnamese gentleman who often has the night shift, but he was so very friendly and helpful. He assisted us with translation with our pre-arranged driver and other matters. All staff, in fact, were very friendly and professional.
The only minor issue we had was that there was a misunderstanding in the kitchen that delayed our breakfast order. Immediately, the aforementioned Vietnamese gentleman apologized, saw that our order was corrected, and offered free special coffees, deluxe fruit shakes, etc as compensation.
They offer ipads to use, one was complementary with our room, and the kids really enjoyed the games.
The bathroom was absolute heaven. Large jacuzzi tub, with lights and radio... was hard to leave!
In all, I would highly recommend this hotel. It is very centrally located, and surprisingly quiet given that it is on a busy street. I am a light sleeper, and the only noise I heard was the gong of the neighbouring temple... which is a welcome, exotic alarm clock.
