4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Lovely hotel opposite the Vat Chan temple, right on Mekong River and near great night markets. Breakfast offered many choices, served on the front terrace.Hotel was happy to mind luggage while we ventured to southern Laos. Lovely eateries close by, sure to please any taste and budget. I loved the restaurant at the Salana Hotel a few does away.The bar near the to top of the hotel has wonderful views, reasonably priced drinks. The laundry situated towards the river was a handy find.(only charged $1.20 per kilo) For Aussies wanting a familiar ATM there is am ANZ one around the corner. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located one-half block from the Mekong River embankment & the night market. The entrance & reception are in impressive but the rooms are very well appointed & clean. Our stays on two separate occasions were part of a Laos-based package so I can not comment on the value for money. The staff were very courteous & efficient & the breakfast selection included both western & Lao dishes.

Nice hotel located just a few steps away from the night market that offers a lot of nice local artifacts but also a lot of fake brands. If you see something you like in the market, don't forget to negotiate the price and buy it here as you are not guaranteed to see the same products in the north.

The rooms are quite basic but ok. Amenities aren't the best so make sure you bring your own shampoo and shower gel :)

Breakfast is good, as a few local dishes are offered.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Free wifi throughout the hotel but sometimes the reception is not always the best.

Don't forget your mosquito spray!!

Good value for money.

The location is excellent, very near the night market and close to restaurants. The room was good and clean. The breakfast buffet was adequate. From the small balcony you could catch a glimpse of the market.

Worth it!.
The location is excellent.............all very clean and there's a lift in the building.
Room 308 is very nice offering views of the neighbouring temple and the river..........
Usual inclusions, including safe, wardrobe, desk, tea making facilities fridge , TV, etc.
The bathroom is smallish but has a good size shower.

Walking distance ( and amongst) t he riverside restaurants / bars and the night market is virtually at the door.
Breakfast is simple but very nice.
Plenty of tuk tuk / taxis at the door if you don't want to walk.

This hotel has an amazing location, given that parks, stores and the public transportation are accessible or are only a few minutes away. The hotel rooms are decent and clean. The hotel was able to assimilate the Lao culture into the furniture, the atmosphere, and the design of the hotel building. It was a great view from the balcony with all the people passing by and the view of the sunset. The food was great and I really like how spacious their restaurant was. I really like how sumptuous the meals were, and their servings were huge. It was really worth every penny. All the warm people especially the staff were all endearing and I really hoped we can stay longer, but we sure will come back.

We were happy with this hotel for our last night in Laos. Our room was large, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, great location close to restaurants and night market. Didn't like the position of the air conditioner, blowing on my face! Outside balcony for meals quite pleasant of a morning before it got hot. The hotel has a lift and this was appreciated as it was the end of our trip and our bags were heavy. Reception very easy to deal with and very pleasant and helpful.
