“Does the job well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012 via mobile

From what I read before about Vientiane hotels - Chanthasom seems to do pretty good, at least on the low season. Clean rooms, good wifi (i.e. The favoured scandinavian bakery had MUCH slower internet), staff is OK friendly
- at least when you are with them - and understand English good - when you speak slowly and with a smile. But these factors are in place in any Developing SE country you go to.

Hotel is quiet, within walking distance from centrum, and clean. Shower was hand held, but hot water etc. Breakfast was a piece of bread (baguette), butter and a fried egg. Nothing to celrbrate.
Yet For about 600BHT/night this all is good since Vientiane standards seem to be lower but more expensive than Thailand. Go figure (I guestimate government corruption from tourist oriented businesses, make no economic sense otherwise).

Would stay again.

Stayed June 2012, traveled solo

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

I was booked in here by work colleagues when I visited them, and I stayed one night. The reception was friendly and the room was clean, if a little functional, and the bed was comfy. The free wifi worked well. I found the location good - it is not in the thick of the tourist area if that's what your looking for, but within walking distance. My room was on the roadside and I guess it could be quieter to ask for a room at the back (although my colleague had a room at the back with noisy pipes), but I didnt notice any road noise during the night. The breakfast was a poached egg and French bread, washed down with a sachet of the dreaded "3 in 1" nescafe.
