Stayed 3 nights and will be back soon. Best location in town by far, with a real & up close view of the Mekong and its life. Also, the climate was perfect; a real Scandinavian summer! The hotel golf cart shuttles you off at any time; very convenient. Stayed in a superior with a cosy terrace where I spent hours reading and listening to the mighty river.
Free WiFi (who dares charging for it those days?) and a laptop for your use. No restaurant (expect for a very good breakfast) though one can order good quality snacks through reception delivered wrapped and tasty in 20 minutes; convenient. Coffee/tea/cookies complementary all day. For dining I recommend the Blue Lagoon where Swiss Peter caters for all with a smile.
The room is just what one needs and was kept spotless (and moskito-sprayed while you're out in the evening - no smell). Softs & water complementary in mini bar, LaoBeer ordered from reception at very reasonable price ($1.50) and it's good indeed! Great feature: the super comfy bed with its electric device that raises it for comfortable reading or raises the lower part - and there's nothing like taking a nap with your feet up after long strolls. Upscale bathroom amenities & good power shower.
Owner Mr. Urban Paulson and the Manager Daniel (both long time very knowledgable Swedish hospitality globetrotters) along with there Lao Staff were literally always at hand to welcome, assist, laugh and recommend (or discourage from easy first-timers mistakes).
Living in Indochina, I will most certainly be back for more. So should you!
Thank you for a rejuvenating and fun retreat!
