Booked at last minute guided by reviews on Trip Advisor! This hotel is very clean, stylishly furnished, with very friendly and helpful staff. Our room, on the fourth floor, had good aircon, a huge bed, actually two twins pushed together, with fine linens. The bathroom was spotless and equipped with an electric shower which worked like a treat. The room had a lovely balcony from which we enjoyed the view of the night market, the Mekong and all that was happening in the Wat opposite - including their preparations for alms giving. Breakfast was good, a selection of Asian and European foods plus freshly cooked egg dishes. The breakfast room also had great views over the river and the Wat opposite.

The staff were happy for us to use the breakfast room even after we checked out. We used the wifi and someone brought us cold water to drink while we waited for our pickup.

Only stayed one night but would stay there again, at the drop of a hat. No complaints whatsoever.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 4th floor at the front. Not noisy even though it overlooked the street and had...

This hotel is in a great position, near the river and the night market, we had a room overlooking the road and the view and it was relatively quiet. However after spending 23 days in Indo China we had visited a lot of hotels, this one fell down due to firstly the lack of interest when checking in and secondly some procedures at breakfast were not up to normal hygiene standards I.e. Cold meat was stored in a hot container!
If they tighten up standards I would stay there again.

My partner and I stayed here twice during our trip to Laos. Airport transfers were easy, on both occasions our room (different floors) overlooked the street with a view to the Mekong and Night Market and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the passing parade!

There were plenty of places to eat in close proximity and the breakfasts at the hotel were good. We got a tuk tuk to Patuxai (The Victory Gate) and walked back to the hotel, checking out various sights on the way, very easily. The staff were helpful and (reservedly) friendly. The only hiccup we had was when we had to make a last minute dash to an ATM because the hotel's EFTPOS machine was not working on checkout. Overall, we loved it!

Really enjoyed the friendly reception staff and the fact it was close to night market. Rooms comfortable with large bed and breakfast offered a good range of food including eggs to order. Nice open air restaurant on first floor. Room included chairs and shower gel and shampoo, kettle and coffee and tea and fridge and safe. Returned as we were happy with it.

Lovely hotel opposite the Vat Chan temple, right on Mekong River and near great night markets. Breakfast offered many choices, served on the front terrace.Hotel was happy to mind luggage while we ventured to southern Laos. Lovely eateries close by, sure to please any taste and budget. I loved the restaurant at the Salana Hotel a few does away.The bar near the to top of the hotel has wonderful views, reasonably priced drinks. The laundry situated towards the river was a handy find.(only charged $1.20 per kilo) For Aussies wanting a familiar ATM there is am ANZ one around the corner. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located one-half block from the Mekong River embankment & the night market. The entrance & reception are in impressive but the rooms are very well appointed & clean. Our stays on two separate occasions were part of a Laos-based package so I can not comment on the value for money. The staff were very courteous & efficient & the breakfast selection included both western & Lao dishes.

Nice hotel located just a few steps away from the night market that offers a lot of nice local artifacts but also a lot of fake brands. If you see something you like in the market, don't forget to negotiate the price and buy it here as you are not guaranteed to see the same products in the north.

The rooms are quite basic but ok. Amenities aren't the best so make sure you bring your own shampoo and shower gel :)

Breakfast is good, as a few local dishes are offered.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Free wifi throughout the hotel but sometimes the reception is not always the best.

Don't forget your mosquito spray!!

Good value for money.
