The location of the Guest house is perfect near to downtown, easy 10 minutes walking distance to the city's restaurants and shops and 5 minutes to the Mekong River.
Rooms are very clean and furnished with wooden furniture well presented.
The cloth rail in the wardrobe is unfortunately placed; it is difficult to hang your cloth side by side.
A hairdryer would be a good purchase!
Although the energy saving light bulbs in the room gives a warm atmosphere but you really have difficulties reading a book in bed. The bedside lamps should have at least 60Watt bulbs! The height of the bed is rather unusual and the pillows are far too small.
An incentive would be a flask of hot water or electric kettle and two cups with herbal tea or coffee placed in the room which would definitely ad a lovely touch.
The bathroom like most guesthouse bathrooms have no hooks or rails to hang your towels. The shower is has a great water pressure and even the warm water works well unlike other guesthouses. Some people would probably appreciate separate hand held shower heads. The shampoo and soap is rather basic, I believe it is not expensive to have them in nice containers, as refills.
I did not check if there is a free computer station with internet access for clients but I highly appreciated the Wi Fi which works well, despite the many connection wlan network names available.
The breakfast variation we had where rather basic a choice of fresh fruits, homemade muesli & yogurts and better Tea would be fantastic. Laos coffee is not everyone’s taste.
Overall this was a good place we stayed at. I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone visiting Vientiane.
