“Fair hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Rooms were clean, cable TV worked fine etc. Didn't eat at the hotel nor really hang around too much so not a lot to comment about. The hotel is near the river and around the corner from a notorious bar or 2. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Stayed 25 to 28 jan.Did cut the visit short by one day not because of the Hotel but two days in Veitiane is enough.
The staff is helpful, the rooms ok but the price is a little bit to high for what is offered.
The brakfast was ok , nothing fancy but contained what you need in terms of yougurth , fruit etc.
For me it was a standard hotel with good location

Since first reviewing this hotel some years ago, have stayed 2 or 3 more times, lastly this month. Hotel facilities & amenities still very good, staff polite & helpful, breakfast reasonable, but I find it hard to justify a rate increase of 30% which is out of step with other Vientiane hotels.

The descriptions and photos on the hotel website match reality. Deluxe double is 30 sqm, but that includes the bathroom and a little access corridor, so the actual room size is about 24-25. The place is absolutely spotless, staff is polite and helpful. Don't blame them for their language skills; the educational system in Laos being what it is, they are doing very well. I found the breakfast buffet (included) disappointing: little to no choice in bread, pastries, cheese, cold cuts; and the coffee was so-so. Still very good value in its categorie.

Very nice Hotel. I stayed this hotel almost two week on my bussiness trip, the hotel was very clean, good breakfast, staff are very firedly and polite, but they need to have more training on hotel hospitality, if you need to be international standart hotel.

Fb staff have to learn more english communication, they can't understan our order or inquiry.
Others than that it is a very hotel location and very easy to access to the town.

Room Tip: Note: Pls book a room not close to the street.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Comfortable rooms with balconies overlooking pretty little temple. It is close to great restaurants and shopping. Scooter rental next door as well. Water pressure wasn't great -- that would be the only negative.

Room Tip: Overlooking street and temple.

Fantastic location, if you can get a room up the top of the hotel, ask for a view of the Mekong river.
The room was spacious, with a superbly comfortable bed, and good air con.
Loved the little balcony where you could look across to the beautiful Wat and see the night markets.
Breakfast was good, and varied.
Fresh fruit, cereals, toast with spreads (and NZ butter!), and local breakfast food.
The pork stir fry was to die for.
Staff are very friendly, and happy to help out with recommendations.
So good to be able to walk everywhere, lots of temples, markets, shops and restaurants.
Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room 408 or 409 have the best view of the Mekong.
