“Good value”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

This guesthouse is really good. The rooms are big with fridge, tv and a nice bathroom. The staff cleans your room if you want them too, and gives you free water and coffee every day. We were leaving by plane very early in the morning and they fixed transport to the airport.

My partner and I found this hotel to be fantastic! It was very close to the drop off point where the buses from Vang Vieng stop and within walking distance to most things that we wished to explore in Vientiane. The manager lady was welcoming and was super helpful when it came to arranging overseas phone calls and airport shuttles. The rooms are of a really decent size and the wardrobe is huge! If you are staying for an extended period this hotel caters for that with a large fridge, kitchenette, plates and cutlery. It was hard waking up in the mornings as the bed was like a large marshmallow that didn't want to let you leave it's grasp and we were happy with that! If we end up in Vientiane again we would stay here in a heartbeat!

We stayed for 3 nights in a room with no window with air conditioning, and it was exactly what it said on the tin! The bathroom was fine and the bed comfortable. Well located for getting to the river, and surrounding by great restaurants and cafes. We would stay here again.

We found this gem after walking around town looking for something halfway decent within our price range. Our room didn't have a window but we often find that without a window it's much quieter. Unfortunately, we were both a little sick while in Vientiane and therefore spent a good amount of time in our room. The bed was really comfortable, there was a large fridge, a kettle, cups/plates, a kitchenette sink, and the internet was fast. Not a bad place to spend the day in bed! The room and bathroom were really clean and for $18/night it was a steal.
If we ever find ourselves back in Vientiane we will stay here again!

Room Tip: If you have the money - pick a room with a window.

I love the location of this Guesthouse. It was easy to locate and the staff there were really friendly and helpful. It is a street away from the main area where the Night Market is at. The guesthouse on the whole is really clean. As you walk into the room area, you'd have to remove your shoes. I stayed in the triple-sharing room and it was huge. We had a window but it merely opens to the corridor. This was not a problem as we were really only back at the guesthouse in the night. Hence, it really is a perfect place to unload your stuff, venture out and head back for a good night's rest. :) Toilet was clean and everything worked perfectly fine. I love it that there is a full-length mirror in the room as well as along the stairway down. Will head back here again on my next visit to Vientiane.

We struggled to find a place suited to our budget in the capital but we were very relieved to find this place.

Although a little bit out of our price range, we couldn't refuse when we saw the lovely room. Fridge, kettle, comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom.

Our only advice we can give is if you have the money to spend, pick the room with a window. We spent a week in a room without a window and it got very very stuffy and hot, even with two fans on but it didn't ruin our time here at all.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and will always ask you if you want your room to be cleaned when you leave in the day.

The greatest point in BENACAM it's justlike home, very cozy warm feeling while being on a visa run and having this uneasy feeling of an outlaw personality.

Most rooms don't have windows, it might not be comfortable for some people, but if u plan just sleep andshower there - it's perfect.

Internet is there in the rooms, however mind how u charge your laptop, the sockets in the rooms only have 2 holes (european style), and they didn't have the adapter for me, so I couldn't use my laptop coz itwas out of battery.

What my husband pointed and it's true, i think: the narrow stairs, no windows and no instructions available in the room - what happens in case there's a fire in the building? It's gonnabe really difficult to get out from that bulding. Because this time we were there with our little kid, this question of safety struck us for the 1st time ever.

And my final point -as I observe almost everywhere in Asia, even in very nice places with good owners, and also this is the problem with my husband who is Thai, people here have difficulties with maintaning and preserving the great places they have created. For BENACAM, we had one electricity socket off the wall hanging just the level of the bed, which is a real danger for the kid. The mirror in the bathroom was broken in 2 parts and it was still inplace but looking like atcan fall off on you atany moment. Soap holder was hanging along the wall, I couldn use it. What thehell, would u ask? Can't u live without a soapholder? I could before I had my son :) But now having a problem with putting the soap away means he will get to it, and it will go into his eyes finally,and there will be a long loud moaning and crying, and noone around will be able to sleep.
And finally, theflash inthe toilet was broken, and it stopped working alltogether on the 2nd day.

And to close this review, my husband's new converse shoes were stolen our 2nd night there. They said to us it was the 1st time ever such thing happened. Because it was my present,and also it was his first pair of decentshoes ever in his life, he got so upset, It was just about to ruin the whole experience of our trip. The guys on reception didn't show us the cam video with the excuse there's some problem with the screen in the lobby. But they agreed for late check out, then they gave us another pair of converse that was there for a few months, forgotten ot left there by someone, and it was the old school durable pair of US converse, with better quality than our stolen converse,and they gave us the 50% of the shoes price back, ours stolen cost 2100 B, we got 1000B back. So at the end, it felt as a fair change,and my husband left the hotel happy and smiling,and so did I
