The Dhavara Hotel is highly recommended. The free airport transfers, efficient friendly staff, excellent breakfast and Wifi connection to rooms, clean and spacious. The rooms are large, and well appointed. The décor throughout the hotel adds to its charm. There are many hotels in Vientiane...More

Please disregard my last answer - got confused with another hotel - age related problem in my case - within their website blurb - they mention colonial - the building itself is pretty ugly - see my reviews - the rooms are probably in a colonial style - wooden floors - highish ceilings - old fashioned bathroom fittings - minimalist decoration - but the building is surrounded by modern buildings - the Ansara which is close by is probably slightly more colonial - we ate at their signature restaurant - the main building is in a "colonial" style with a modern extension around the swimming pool at the rear - the area that both hotels are located in - may have once been the colonial heart of the city close to the Mekong - but Laos is not a rich country and the days of the French are long gone - the area has now been taken over by the night market and a range of eating opportunities both on and off street as well as hotels and hostels - it is very safe - but perhaps not as attractive as it was once - enjoy
