We just stayed here for one night but found it to be a very nice place to stay at $50 per night in the standard room. Rooms were spacious and clean with all of the necessities. Service was very good and the buffet breakfast was good. Free wi-fi was available on the lobby level. Within walking distance of the mekong and all of the major attractions.

Lao Orchid hotel is a clean reasonably priced hotel in a great location of Vientiane. It is next to the Mekong river. There are many great restaurants and bars next to the hotel, as well as the hotel having a restaurant and free breakfast daily. There are many temples near the hotel but to see the main attractions you will need a tuk, tuk driver. The hotel staff is great, Tot was just wonderful and helped me with anything I needed. I would stay at the Lao Orchid hotel next time I am in Vientiane.

The lao orchid was quite a nice hotel, well located and good service. The rooms were basic but clean and the breakfast area was a particularly nice place to start the day. The hotel is just 100 metres from the mekong and in the main tourist area.The hotel was not exceptional but if you are looking for a good value place to stay, I would recommend this hotel

Have stayed here many times and continue to stay come back. It is not the best hotel in Vientiane but it certainly is one of the better value hotels. The rooms are nice, basic and clean. If you are after a centrally located hotel and a comfortable stay then this is it.

I had a great three night stay at this hotel. rooms and very clean, everything works, and the staff great. Breakfast is also good, and enjoyed eating it while overlooking the nearby temple. They also have limited room service menu, which was great quality food. It would be a great place to bring kids. Close to the riverfront, and an easy stroll into town. The only bummer was the loud drunken party noises coming from riverfront nightclubs, but it wasn't too loud.

We spent five nights at the Lao Orchid Hotel after recommendations here on Trip Advisor and we were very satisfied with our stay. The rooms were nice and clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast really good with Lao standards. I would have been even more content if they hadn't completely run out of certain food stuffs (yogurt, bananas) some mornings.

As has been reported already, the beds are fairly hard, but I still found them comfortable and I slept very well, as did everyone in our party. And, yes, the dogs are still there and if canines barking bothers you, expect to wake up early.

They offer free wi-fi in the lobby but the signal was very weak so don't expect too much. (There's also a PC you can use).

The location is excellent and you have plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Stayed here in January 2010. Hotel only had one standard room available, so we got a standard room and a suite. The suite was quite large, basically a living room and a bedroom, plus a bathroom. Both rooms had a balcony with a view of the Mekong River.
Front desk staff speaks fairly good English, but the rest of the hotel staff speaks only basic English. PC's with internet access in the lobby.
Breakfast was quite good.
