“Excellent location by the river front and right beside the palace”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

I am totally satisfied with the location and the overall presentation and services given by the hotel. This is one of the rare hotel in Laos whereby staffs can speak English fluently. The hotel is next to the palace and 5 minutes walk to Wat Xiengthong. The jetty is right in front if you plan to take a slow boat ride to Pak ou caves upstream.

The hotel is in a great location on the river road, with large comfy beds in large clean rooms. Breakfast was adequate and wi-fi OK. I have stayed 4 different times now and the hotel is good value and like a home from home.

We stayed 1 night at this pleasant hotel though had booked 7. Unfortunately, the internet was not working upstairs and needed repaired. They were so kind and understanding when we asked to check out after only one night. They even gave us a $5 discount.
The breakfast included was pleasant and served on the outdoor patio. They offer complimentary bananas, tea and coffee 24/7.
Request a room not overlooking the Mekong as there is a street in between the river and the hotel. The traffic dies down at 11:30pm and is then fairly quiet.

This was reasonable, served a solid breakfast, had rooms that were more than adequate, and the staff was excllent and very helpful. Across the street from the Mekong and away from the shuck and jive of the main tourist street (but a several minute walk from important sites, morning & niht markets and more), the views were good. Big rooms and nice western bathrooms and a host of riverside restaurants (not across the street which is reserved by the owner of this hotel) within a couple of minute walk. Nice to have coffee, tea and fruit out all day; staff helped us arrange things that were not with the usual tourist herds which would have been very difficult on our own. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 204 & 205 have best views.

Clean rooms, great location and very friendly and helpful receptionist. I thought 55$ is too expensive considering there are so many cheaper options with the same standards. WiFi didn't work in the room or even downstairs in the lobby. We used the computer next to reception instead. Breakfast ok and quick.

I booked a double room but was given a family room with fantastic view of the river. Unlike other budget accommodations dotting the river, the view of the river was not obstructed by any stalls at the river bank. There are tree stumps at the river bank for one to enjoy the view with your own beverages.

Although it is located on a main road, traffic is not much at this part of town. There are also double window shutters to block of the noise and light. Although the corridor for upstairs are made of wooden floorboards, I couldn't really hear the neighbours.

Although breakfast is pre-fixed according to the day, they only cook them when you are seated. Therefore, it can take awhile to be served. If you are in a hurry, do allocate 30 minutes for all the food to be served.

Morning market is just behind the hotel, while night market and the temples are just slightly further down.

Nice quaint little guesthouse by the river with 10 small rooms. Clean and pleasant with a very friendly young staff. Only objection I have is for the ants that are ubiquitously crawling around. Included breakfast begins only at 7:30 which can be quite late if you have an 8am appt with a travel agency. Nothing special either... 2 pieces of bacon, eggs sunny side up, and French toast. Supposedly alternate between Lao and western every other day but we had this same twice in a row. Coffee is only Nescafé as well. There are many guesthouses out there for 1/2 the pice but at ~$30 per night not much to complain about here
