“Friendy, great location, beautiful”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We came with train from Thailand and were dropped off at a very ugly-looking hostel. We wandered the streets and came to Lao Orchid. The staff is friendly and helpful in any way, they booked us bus tickets and found places my friend could exercise and were just great. Clean, comfortable, everything you need and more. We broke a chair by accident and of course offered to pay for it, but they would have none of it. They said accidents happen, dont worry. THUMBS UP! Recommended.

Stayed for two nights with my son in April 2013. Excellent location for all the sights as well as the night market and restaurants. Lovely room and bathroom: balcony overlooking the Mekong river and a beatiful temple next door. Delightful hotel with helpful staff. Would certainly stay again.

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Very satisfied. Good value for money. Staff very friendly. Night market just round the corner. Good bargains can be found at the night market. Disappointed with Talat Sao.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the Mekong river.

Lao orchid hotel is beautifully situated in the city on the Mekong.
Ideal for exploring this compact city.
The staff were excellent, spoke good English and were very helpful. In our case they made numerous phone calls to Bangkok on our behalf to sort out a problem we had in transit there.
Trips to Vang Vieng and Ban Keun were well organised.
This is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, everywhere immaculate.
Breakfast was copious and top quality.
Four star quality at a most reasonable price.
We stayed there for 3 weeks and had a good reduction on the price

Room Tip: Always go for a deluxe room

Love this hotel and is our second time. Just so convinient overlooking the Mekong river. Perfect p,ace for families. And just a door down from hotel is Common Grounds, which has great food and indoor playground for the little one. Staff at hotel are the best and very helpful in deed, and will go out of their way to help you. Also at the staff at restaurant and kitchen are always welcoming and friendly, oh it's also cheap hotel to stay at. At night just cross the main road and they have night markets everynite of the week, so would recommend this hotel to anyone

Room Tip: All rooms are good

I noted a previous review that had suggested possible dishonesty. I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last seven years and I would find the chance of the staff being dishonest highly unlikely.I had an experience two weeks ago during my last visit where money had fallen from my pocket during breakfast. It would have been easy for the staff to have picked this up once I moved away BUT,immediately one of the ladies approached me and handed the money to me. Nothing special perhaps but indicative of the great people who work here.It is a great hotel but hardly 5 star.I like it for the position and the lovely staff. It is usually full from repeat visitors and corporate bookings.Tells you something then.
