“OK hotel for a brief stay”
Reviewed February 16, 2011

We were in dire need of a room as we could not have one more night at the Hotel Khamvongsa which was our preferred stay (32$ a night). That hotel had charm and an aura of peace around it, while Mixay Paradise was as Lonely Planet and ppl at TA describe it: a room. You get what you pay for, and for our double bed (which took up most of the room), clean room, standard bath with a small hot water tank togethr with a shared balcony came at 15$ (incl. breakfast) and we were happy to stay there for that amount. Not a place to stay for weeks and dream away your hours, but decent budget hotel.

This guest house does not have any competitors in Vientiane! Just the BEST ONE! for around $10.5US (which is NOT cheap for Asia) you will have very clean room, very nice service and breakfast quite buffet!!! Im service EVERY DAY!!! Internet Wi-Fi included form 11am till 9pm. Very nice relaxed environment. The BEST guesthouse in whole South Asia so far!

I reached Vientiane rather late in the day and most guesthouses were full, so I had to walk around and went to enquire in many guesthouses.

Mixay Paradise was full along with many other guesthouses and I only managed to get a room the next day. After popping into quite a number of guesthouses, I feel that mixay paradise offers v good value.

Location: very central. town area. close to restaruants, shops, mekong etc. beside mixay is another guesthouse where you can get relatively good value food. you can also rent a bicycle at this guesthouse. very useful for vientiane. otherwise turn right and you will be able to find a few shops that rent motorcycles. opposite mixay paradise is mixay temple. besides the temple is a local lao school. i spent some time here watching the local children playing during their school breaks and i also took some photos of them. quite interesting. for a massage, turn left and left again at the street. walk on until u reach impeng temple. opposite the temple are two shops that does good massage at a good rate of 35000 kip for an hour. otherwise turn right after exiting mixay paradise, and you can soon find mixay massage at the same price. but i found the place to be a bit more seedy.

rooms: clean, but basic. i only managed to get the double room with fan without toilet. not an issue for me. but the whole place was very clean. and i got a good sleep. room is a bit small for 2. but i was staying alone, so not much of an issue. twin rooms are bigger.

service: i find the service quite bad. the staff there just hope that you disappear and do not bother them. thats the impression i get. and if you go to the reception, they will look down and pretend not to see you. unless you call out to them. maybe its just the pple i met.

others: as others have mentioned, there is free wifi from 11am to 9pm. i dont understand why they cut the service at 9pm, since most pple would need it after that time. its not that fast either. there is breakfast provided. you get your own set. toast bread, a piece of ham, egg and some fruits. more than enough for me. they offer airport transfer at 40000 kip. not that exp. but you can always neg for a lower rate with the tuk tuk drivers on the streets.

the double room with fan without toilet was 85000 kip. with toilet and ac is 110000 kip. add tv is 120000 kip i think. single fan is 75000 kip.

the rooms after often full. if you arrive late, try to email them first.

We paid about $11 for double room & private bathroom, and got a decent breakfast for that too. The place is clean and the staff were great, would go back if I return to Vientiane. Free Wifi only for 10hours a day though, but you get a signal from the place next door if you want to fork out 6000kip an hour

Unsure what BoxingHercules means, but we have just arrived at the Mixay Paradise and all appears fine, hot showers, helpful staff, close to the river, option of AC in the room or just a fan. You can pay in Kip, USD or Baht. Double room 85,000 Kip or USD 11.
More than happy. Although unsure why the wifi is only availible between 9am - 11pm?

Good hotel (recently opened) with good value for money. We had a room with a/c and hot shower for 98.000 kip (USD 12). Hotel is clean, small breakfast included and free wifi between 11am and 9pm. Rooms are very small but this didnt bother us.
