Spent 4 nights there with 2 children in April 2013. Hotel is not easy to notice from the street and tuk-tuk drivers do not usually know the place either. Prepare yourself with the directions. The hotel itself is a nice surprise, although at first sight I felt it a bit overrated on Tripadvisor. But in a few days the ever smiling and attentive staff and the super-relaxed environment helped me to understand the rating.
The room is ok, nothing special. Everything worked and indeed the beds are comfortable. The bathroom was basic with a bathtub and shower. Cartoon Network works and there are couple of other channels but most are Lao-speaking. Another big plus for those travelling with children is that the hotel has a close courtyard with no direct access to the street.
Make sure you buy a MOSQUITO KILLER SPRAY in a nearby corner shop. They sell it for $1.50 or so and it is the best investment ever made! You would not enjoy your stay without it.
Breakfast is not the most important meal for us and it was ok with 5 or 6 options on the menu including various egg meals, pancakes or noodle. Comes with free flow of coffee, tea and fruit juice. A few different fresh fruits are also served.
It was constant 40+ degrees Celsius in Vientiane during our stay and the pool was so great to have. A true life-saver after a full day walking around in the city.
