We loved our stay in the Moonlight Champa. Upon arrival a note was scribbled onto the chalkboard welcoming us - what a nice touch! The owners Brad and Isabella are both incredibly friendly and helpful, as are Mr. Lei and the rest of the staff - I really can't say enough good things about them all - always welcoming, with big smiles on their faces, and happy to help out with any queries, recommendations, etc. If you're chilling out in the lobby area they'll offer you a coffee - really just the nicest people and best hotel staff I've ever had in Asia.
We opted for the deluxe room which has a balcony overlooking the front of the Settha Palace Hotel. It was lovely being able to finish off our evenings in Vientiane with a nice drink on the balcony. The rooms are clean, the beds are super comfortable, and the lobby is very welcoming and comfortable, a nice place to chill out for a bit, inside or out. Location is good - only short walks to the morning market, fountain, museum and temples. At 250,000kip (approx $33) it's a bargain.
Because of how great the staff are, how welcome I was made to feel, and how in just two nights it had already felt like home - I would highly recommend staying in the Moonlight Champa as a terrific budget option, and when I return to Vientiane I'll definitely be staying here again.
