The Chanthapanya Hotel promotes itself as a "Family Hotel". Well located across the road from the National Hall of Culture and within two blocks of the Mekong River. A definite cut above the many Backpacker Hostels. The room I had for a week was comfortable and clean. There was a bit of traffic noise early morning, but bearable.
The staff were friendly and very obliging. The free Wifi was appreciated.
The Hotel had a very reasonable breakfast of local food. Continental style food - fruit cheese, bread etc and if you really insisted the cooks could knock up some fried eggs and bacon I dont know though why people would bother.
Front of House proved to be good at fixing little problems and could quickly arrange transportation
For eating out just around the corner there are Lao (try Lao Kitchen) restaurants, little French style cafes and if for the junk food retards a pizza joint
Minor final rant why don't Western Hotels work out that independent travellers will look for free wifi when searching for accommodation? It seems to escape them that free wifi is a real inducement. Instead they try to stick it to you if they can.
Summation, I enjoyed my stay and when/if I come back to Lao PDR this place will be on my list to stay at
