Don't be deceived by the Excellent TA reviews or website pictures about this hotel like we were. This hotel will be the biggest rip off of your trip.
For $45 a night you will get bedroom walls covered in water stains and mold, a tv that has laughable 11" screen, a noisy AC unit, and a bathroom that also has permanent dirt grime stains on the sink, floors and around the drain (see pictures). The shower isn't even divided from the sink and toilet, and for $45/n I think that's unacceptable. Our hotel in Vang Vieng was $15/n and was cleaner and nicer than Rama hotel. When the manager showed us our room on the first day i looked in the room and i said "there must be a misunderstanding, we booked the $45/n room". It's that bad. The location of this hotel is not so good as well. It's located outside old town and a 20 minute walk to the Mekong river front. At first you think that's ok but when you walk around and see the locations of other Guesthouses you'll see that Ramas isn't so ideal. Breakfast was a mediocre buffet of toast, oranges, coffee, juice and eggs. One morning there were cold scambled eggs left out in a tray and the next morning we ordered 2 fried eggs, waited 30 minutes, still no fried eggs. Also I every day the oranges were left untouched as there were little flies constantly swirling about them.
What I find really comical about this hotel is that I'm not the first TA review to complain about the dirty bathroom or moldy room or cold eggs, and yet the hotel consistently replies on TA "my staffs have taken this seriously and are doing all that we can to improve in all the areas that you've mentioned."
There are dozens and dozens of hotels and Guesthouses located inside old city and along the Mekong Delta, for 1/2 to 2/3 the price and are inifitely better. Do yourself a favor, don't book this hotel and look for a place once you get here. You won't be disappointed.
