“Clean, ok breakfast. airport transfers a good price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

I only had one night here and it didn't strike me as anything special. It was clean, good location, OK breakfast, cheap airport transfers. Staff while helpful were not friendly. A perfectly acceptable hotel, pricey but probably not for this standard in Vientiane.

If you like walking, shopping or looking for a place to relax for a few days in Vientiane with friends, family and tour group.I would like to recommend you Lao orchid hotel, very nice and comfortable, You feel it's warm from hotel staff, as well as the hotel location makes it so convenient for you to wander around Vientiane town by foot. Close to many restaurants, tourist attraction, night market, where souvenirs are displayed on the Mekhong riverside promenade every evening. You get to see the local life's styles. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: From the third floor up, Recommend to request room with city view. Actually, both side have nice vie...

The office booked me at Lao Orchid Hotel for 3 days until I could find another one of my choice for my 2 month stay. But I decided to stay on at Lao Orchid Hotel.

The room is very spacious with a king size firm bed. Has functional and clean toilet. Every afternoon, one gets a saucer of assortment of fresh fruits. All the drinking water you want -- complementary. Good sized television. Super clean rooms. Clean white bed sheets and pillow cases everyday. Wooden floor is so shiny and clean you can walk barefoot. Breakfast assortment everyday.

Location is excellent. Near an assortment of restaurants and cafes , massage parlors and the Night Market. Can do invigorating early morning walks along the river easily.

But the plus plus are the wonderful staff who are all very friendly and helpful.

Their hotel car service is worth the money. The drivers are all very friendly, helpful and always on time!

Room Tip: 3rd and 4th floors would provide better views.

Second time visiting, and prices have doubled. Its a nice hotel but not sure if I will return as I'm happy to have less 'luxurious' surroundings. The Lao Orchid is over priced even though it is nice to relax as Vientiane is a lot busier than it used to be.

We stayed at a sweet little boutique hotel AND the Laos Orchid, and it would be a toss up as to which was better. Clean, quiet rooms, extremely accommodating and sweet staff, great food and perfect location. We used a hotel driver for a 1/2 day tour and he was over the top gracious. When he said he would take care of us, he did. This was typical of the service we received. We are staying there again on our way through Vientiane. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We stayed toward back of hotel. But seemed like good construction and quiet building.

We spent 3 nights here on arriving in Laos. It was clean and comfortable and we liked the location. The breakfast was quite good as well. The wifi only seemed to work in the lobby but that was not a big problem for us. The best part of the stay was being awakened the first morning by the sound of monks softly chanting in the morning as they collected their alms. Our balcony gave us a great view of this activity each morning, without us feeling like we were intruding. I would recommend a stay here.

Stayed 2 nights in a deluxe room which was lovely, nice and clean and spacious. Included a safe, and a kettle for tea and coffee. Breakfast was great, lots to choose from and well cooked, loved the espresso coffee available as well. Location wise this was a great pick as we were able to walk to the river and the night markets, and also many shops and restaurants close by. We hired bicycles from a shop nearby for the day and rode all along the river and to Patuxai and other sights.
