We liked the stay in Little Eden, all clean and spacious. The beds were some of the best we had in 4 weeks in lao. The breakfast was good and the pool was really appreciated to hang out and get some snacks from the bar.

We were travelling to Don Det with our children (4 and 7 years old) and stayed one night at Little Eden. The rooms were fine and the food was good, although a bit expensive compared with prices generally on Don Det. The big draw is the beautiful sunsets from the restaurant and, especially if you are travelling with kids, the...

I was no laughing at you I was just very happy that I didi'nt have to install a new lock on that door, since they all have a master key. And these copy cat reviews are not at all original. Greetings, Mathieu

Good location on Don Det, you arrive by ferry from the Nakasong it is a short walk approximately 300m to the check in overlooking the magic Mekong. Nice hotel with the restaurant area over the river, the sunset views are breathtaking. The breakfast and food in the restaurant were good. The accommodation is good, big comfortable bed, large bathroom. Don...

The owner of this hotel is a confrontational alcoholic. When we arrived he had been drinking for what seemed like 24 hours (blamed it on Lao New Year) and was treating his staff like slaves (holding out his spent cigarette for someone to come take from his hand.) The next night at dinner, we were joking amongst ourselves and he...

Lao Newyear is in April not in January. And I have indeed a black belt in Judo. About the confrontation I was right as I can see that in your review. Good luck. And I don't even smoke. So I don't know what you are on about. Mathieu Verborg

I arrived at Little Eden expecting the usual welcome from the people on the desk. To my surprise, the owner Matthew was awaiting my arrival. Reviews are all about disecting the good and bad points about a hotel and triyng to put a objective point of view of the experience. This review is a little different. All I can say...

Enjoyed 6 nights at little Eden, beds were very comfortable for Asia and the breakfast had good variety. The pool was a great addition but the seats were very uncomfortable and need some sort of cushion. Friendly Lao staff and an all round good stay.

Little Eden probably has the best position on Don Det from which to view the sunset and the restaurant is perfectly positioned to do this. We stayed for 5 nights, our room was large and the bed was comfortable, the swimming pool is an added bonus. Unfortunately we did have some maintenance, service and security issues with our room which...

When I'm of the clock, I'm of the clock. If you work as many hours a day year round as I do, you will not even be able to speak incoherent. You will not be able to speak at all.
