“I think you'd be silly to stay anywhere else!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2009

Newly bulit but with a traditional regenerated feel to the place this hotel offers a charming stay in the Laos capital. Dark wood and white walls make this place feel hip and modern but old-worldy at the same time. The rooms are large and clean with lovely wooden floors. The rooms feature aircon, a TV and a fridge. Breakfast is nice and the Laos coffee superb. For 30 dollars a night what you get is a high quality small hotel. No smoking in the rooms - ha!

The location is right near the center, just a short walk from the mighty Mekong.

I had an excellent stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and service-minded. The Continental breakfast was great - I really miss the fruitsalads and the Lao yoghurt. The Swedish pancakes is also a most. The hotel is excellently located just a few steps from the river and close to shops and restaurants. The rooms are quiet, clean and modern and decorated in very tasteful Lao style.

A lovely, clean, stylish hotel with helpful, friendly staff and an owner who went out of his way to help me when I needed it.
The rooms (and apartments) are spacious, great beds with firm (but not hard) mattresses and crisp linen. My ensuite bathroom had a powerful wet room style shower but plenty of room so the rest of the bathroom didnt get wet. It was all spotlessly clean, with a fridge, tele including English and French channels, air-con and fan.
The breakfast was great - lots of options from Lao style, bacon and eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, yoghurts and croissant.
There is also free internet access.
The location is good - just a few seconds walk to the river with its food-stalls, and it's also close to one of the best restaurants I ate in while I was there (Mak Phet).
But most of all the consistently friendly and helpful staff were what made my stay there particularly enjoyable, and as I say, they went out of their way to help me when I encountered some difficulties.
My fellow guests were a mixture of aid workers, business men and women and holiday-makers. This place is not a backpacker/party place, but I found the atmosphere very laid-back and gently sociable: even though I was on my own, it was easy to have a chat or find company for dinner.
This hotel is really good value, and spotlessly clean but it's the staff who really make it a great place to stay. I've put the contacts on here because I don't think there is a website yet.
