Thanks to all the reviewers. We chose this hotels based on reviews , and we are delighted. It's absolutely lovely. Spacious, comfortable, with a balcony , view over the town centre, good wifi, helpful staff, good TV., and just around the corner from lots of coffee shops and restaurants.
There are plenty of cheaper places , all of which looko pretty good , but if you feel like splashing out a bot, this is certainly a boutique hotel with character.

My very best experience in South East Asia’s boutique hotels.
Everything was perfect in this chic hotel: excellent service, superb rooms with a view and a balcony, great location: Dhawara hotel has no real competitors in Vientiane. The staff is very efficient and the general Manager is fluent in French and English. Dhawara also offers free shuttle service to the airport.

The Dhavara is really a beautiful hotel. The rooms are lovely and tastfully decorated. The housekeeping staff is so efficient that our room was always cleaned and madeup before we came back from breakfast. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of choices. The hotel is located so close to everything. Just a few minutes from the Mekong where many cafés and restaurants are located . The staff in general is extremely helpful and accomodating. We would definetly stay at the Dhavara on our next trip to Vientiane.

As we had a punctured tyre on the road to the South, we decided to go back to Vientiane instead of going to Paksan. At 7PM on December 30th, we had no room in Vientiane. By chance, we arrived at the Dhavara hotel. We entered the lobby and we wanted to stay: it looked like a stylish English hotel, really comfy and welcoming. We were very lucky to get two rooms, as we were told that the hotel was full on the 29th and on the 31st.
We were told on the spot that, as there was a festival near by, it would be noisy during the night. In fact, we had no problem at all with that.
Our rooms were beautiful, with a lot of old style mirrors and furniture. The bathroom was also nicely furnished and the water very hot (rare in Lao). The bed was very comfortable.
The breakfast in the, again, beautiful restaurant was very good and the staff was friendly, with a young man speaking perfect French (as is quite common in Lao).
The location is very good, close to the centre of everything. Of course, this place is not for you if you want a garden or a swimming pool. It's in the middle of the city with no ground around.
Our only regret: not having known this hotel on our first visit to Vientiane.

The Dhavara is probably one of the nicest hotels in Vientiane. Huge and clean rooms, nice bathroom and tasteful interiors combined with good service and friendly staff. Additionally, the location is perfect (walking distance to the major, though only few, attractions) and the breakfast is quite good too.

We have stayed at this hotel in the "presidential suite" with our family. Hotel was great, good breakfast, clean and friendly staff. You certainly feel the "boutique" in the hotel name, most likely it is a family run hotel.

All in all it is a very friendly hotel but not very suitable for children as there is no pool or space for them to run around, so might be much more suitable when travelling without children. Hotel furthermore should work on the tourist information / update on travel options, the hotel's travel desk could not help us with a few specific questions.
