The hotel is close walking to the more touristy area of Vientiane with it's restaurants and bars. A stones throw from the Mekong river means you can stroll along the front in the daily night markets without needing a tuk tuk. Our room was spacious, in good condition and our only gripe being that the room wasn't 'sealed' and there were no mossie nets. A few bites later...
The room electrics are controlled by your key card which when removed turns everything off; the fridge, your pc charging, everything - this took a bit of getting used to as we were desperate to charge up after a long overland trip.
The staff are amenable and arranged a breakfast 'to go' when we had to depart for an early morning flight. Breakfast was included in our price and was substantial, so much so we often went without lunch.
