We stayed for four nights and the stay could not have been better. From the welcome we received at the start to the goodbye before we left. We were greeted with a welcome drink and a beautifully annotated tourist map with some recommendations marked on. Our room was a junior suite on the first floor (that's the top floor, I think it would be better on that floor rather than the ground) that overlooked the river, it was spacious with unique (for us) remote controlled beds that get into various positions; personally after a play I stuck with the flat position! Although it overlooks the river you actually don't get that much of a view because there is a (quiet) road and some trees in-between so it's a broken view. What sets this apart from other places we stayed in Laos we the attentiveness and professionalism of all their staff; they simply could not do enough to make your stay a pleasant and hassle free one. The breakfasts are wonderful and taken in the restaurant overlooking the Mekong; the food is well prepared and in addition to the buffet there is a good choice including fruit sharks, eggs, pancakes, and cooked fruit dishes that are cooked to order. They also have a golf cart to ferry you anywhere in town, it's a small place so not essential but handy, the hotel itself is not right in the centre but about a 5 minutes walk to the start of the main street. On our final morning we left before breakfast but they said goodbye and gave us a bag of munchies for our boat trip. Final tip, there is a traditional steam and massage place next door where you can get a good professional massage (although not in a particularly private room) and a hot sauna, good to undo any of your over indulgences.
