I always stay here when in Vientiane. Clean, nice and helpful staff, good location, good price. Internet connection is very good, has been useful during my business trips. Also friendly for families and couples. 3min walk to night market, many restaurants around.

I've just completed my fourth stay here, and the Khamvongsa remains one of my two favorite hotels anywhere. (The other is in Paris.) It isn't fancy, but the whole property is stylish and dignified, with excellent staff. The European breakfast (one of six or seven options) is wonderful: juice, fresh fruit, an excellent croissant, coffee or tea, and delicious fresh... More

„Cold“ Welcome. We had rooms located on separarte buildings although I requested upon booking to have rooms next to each other which was confirmed. Our friend complained about the unusual insects on the walls in Room 203. Luckily it was possible to transfer to Room 303. Both rooms were located opposite the main buildinig facing a construction site. Our room... More

Hotel Khamvongsa was an excellent choice. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was a good size and very clean. The hotel offered several different choices for breakfast. It is centrally located but not in the noisiest area of town. We would return there again and recommend it to others.

Hotel Khamvongsa occupies two elegant buildings full of nooks and crannies and joined by a partly covered patio. We had a wonderful 4 night stay there thanks in large part to the quiet and relaxed atmosphere that pervades the hotel. The room with floors and furniture in dark wood was lovely. We enjoyed breakfast and its variety of offerings from... More

Hotel Khamvongsa is close to the airport (15 min. drive) but conveniently located in the city center. They provide airport pick up service. You can walk to the bars, restaurants and monuments or rent a bike in the neighbourhood. There's a bar to drink a good, fresh Laobeer, a cocktail or banana shake, they provide wifi. Breakfast: no buffet breakfast... More

Spacious, clean rooms with stylish hardwood furniture. Good beds and friendly staffs. Centrally located but calm. Good breakfast with a number of options, all prepared from local ingredients. Only disadvantage is that you have to book long time in beforehand to be sure to get a vacant room....

We staued here for three nights. No elevators, you have to drag the suitcases up, but staff were helping as well, many thanks to them. The room could do with a little bit of cleaning - shelves in the toilet were amazingly dusty. There was safe, but a tiny one.TV and fridge with the minibar were in the cupboard. The... More

Rooms are fine, as is breakfast. We stayed in 2013 and again several times over January and February 2016. Manager was rude and indifferent. We booked a VIP bus to Vang Vieng through the hotel. We relied on the hotel to ensure that services they reccommend, and for which they may received commission, was reputable. We were taken to a... More
