Avalon Hotel
Ranked #47 of 94 Hotels in Vientiane
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Clean and comfortable room, unfortunately hot water seemed to be in short supply during our two night stay which was annoying. Breakfast was good but not enough seating and had to wait around for a table on both mornings until one vacated by other guests. Hotel was fully occupied during our stay and there are only 4 or 5 tables for breakfast - some guests had to sit on sofas in the lobby to eat their breakfast. Staff were friendly and very accommodating.

Room Tip: Rooms at front have balconies and are brighter and feel more spacious.

The rating I see for Avalon is a 3.5, and that is about right. I give it a four, because - well, it does everything you would want a relatively cheap hotel to do. It is downtown (but not as close as I would like to the river and center). It is clean. My room was ready when I came, and the front desk guy recommended I wait a few minutes for a better room, as the one ready right on arrival (I was early, 11:30) didn't have a window. I appreciate that. The WiFi worked. The TV and its remote too. I was on the second floor, so only one floor to walk up. The breakfast was mediocre, but edible. Nothing special (for that, see the Khamvongsa, which was full) but nothing wrong - and for the Agoda price, that is all I would expect.

Rooms are clean and OK, but nothing special. The view is of the subarbs of the City, location is not on the Riverside but a 15 minute walk. The disadvantage that disturbed me the most is that the room was infested with mosquitoes. Nice breakfast with an outside terrace.

There is no TV in the single rooms ($18) but wifi available. Good breakfast (included) served outside. Comfy lobby w/newspapers. Hot water with strong pressure. Has an elevator, so good if you have a lot of luggage.

This was my second stay at Avalon Hotel and I enjoyed it very much.
Pros: great location in central Vientiane, good clean rooms, great hot showers, good breakfast (on the last day, I realized one could get eggs for breakfast), good beds with clean sheets changed every day, good WiFi
Con: I traveled on my own so the size of the room was fine, I would have felt cramped with a travel companion in the same double room.

Location is very near to little Chinatown in Vientiane where you can find food and shopping. Its located in the city centre but on the other street which is quieter. Hotel lobby decor is nice and clean. Lift is a little too narrow. Room are big, clean, hot shower water. Mattress is hard and I cant really sleep well at night. Unfortunately, breakfast is limited only with eggs, bread and some fruits. Breakfast in right infront of the hotel. Wifi is fantastic. My room on the 3rd floor, air con was dripping water and I went down to the reception and they change for me immediately.

Hotel is close to the centre of Vientiane, but in a quiet side street. Room we had was a bit cramped for a couple, but well-equipped and clean. Ample hot water, but you had to wait a long time for it to come. No restaurant in hotel, but plenty of choice close by. Breakfast served in lobby or just outside at the front. Good value.
