Did not get off to a good start here, as I was given the key to a room which was literally opposite reception. I looked inside the room and it was very dark, even with the curtains open and the lights on in full daylight. I asked for another room and was given one that was in a block to... More

Hotel got positive reviews in Lonely Planet in the past. The last positive review on trip advisor date from latest 2014. Our experience was a worn out, overpriced, poor choice for breakfast, terrible coffee and worst of all is the service. They are not helpful and not interested to help at all. We stayed 2 nights and then decided to... More

The outside of the hotel looks quite nice on the outside, but seems like it has had its best years. Staff is bored and not very helpful, old rooms with run-down bathrooms, cleaning not done very well (had dirty sheets after cleaning, dirty bathroom at arrival), breakfast with over the date orange juice and staff did not even respond to...

This hotel is mainly for groups. I was booked in with a group and as I had to arrive early I booked an extra night. Like a previous contributor I arrived - in the evening after a long HK-Hanoi-LP trip - to find no record of my booking, through booking.com. However, I got a room ok. Room mostly ok, minor... More

I was in email contact with the hotel and even though I confirmed twice my room booking they did not have me booked. Nor was there a taxi to pick me up at the airport. However, it all worked out ok. I stayed in a deluxe room which was quiet and large. Bed was a bit hard but bathroom was... More

We stayed here in January for two nights in a deluxe suite. The deluxe suites are a little away from the standard rooms. They are reasonably spacious rooms built from hardwood and standing on stilts. The grounds are really well kept with pretty gardens and a breakfast/dining area on stilts in a pool in the middle of the grounds. We... More

We had a good room, not large but clean, and enjoyed our stay. The pond in the middle of the villa must have been stunning when they built the hotel, but now there's quite a lot of maintenance to be done - this applies to the entire complex. The guys working there are lazy: you'll find them sleeping in the... More

When we walked into this hotel after a long bus ride, we were really excited to see our room - the grounds are absolutely beautiful, and we had heard several recommendations about this hotel. However, when we walked into our standard room, it smelled like mold, which we soon realized was due to the fact that the shower flooded the... More

This was one of my favourite hotels in Laos, despite them having some building work going on! I found the staff here to be so friendly and helpful - they even asked what time we would be getting up so that they wouldn't do any drilling before we were up. I do agree with one of the previous reviews that... More
