Stayed here for about a week while doing the Indochina loop a couple years ago. It's run by foreigners, I think an Australian man (?), who runs the hotel very well. He greeted us when we arrived and let us use the reception computer internet. Service is top notch, the attached open air restaurant has delicious, French-infused food. We ate at the attached restaurant often during our stay and it has several excellent dishes and a good, real breakfast.
The hotel itself faces the river, which is a great view if you're on that side of the hotel. We were in the cheapest room in the hotel, the single room overlooking the garden, and were very happy. The bed is comfortable, bathroom is spotless and has a Casino Royale-style glass shower. The staff are very helpful and friendly; we had no problem getting a tuk tuk to take us to the Buddha Garden and they were frank about telling us where we could get cheap public transport to Thailand.
This was one of my favorite hotels from a year of travel abroad. The style and decor of the hotel is very unique and creative. Each room was different and eclectic, but pulled together. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.
We were backpacking so this was a bit higher in price than our usual budget accommodations. If you're ok with the price, I highly recommend it! It is a bit of a short, flat walk to the more central part of Vientiane, but walking along the river to get into town was a pleasure stroll for us and we did not mind the location at all.
It was a great place for couples, quiet and very safe. We paid for our stay when we checked out and paid in cash in kip, but I think they also accept other currencies too.
