Situated on the "new" street along the Mekong river, west of the town center. Rooms are (very) big and reasonably clean. Breakfast buffet is on the top floor: sit on the the terrace and enjoy the view over the river. Our group of 9 was splitting up in Vientiane: some left 1 day earlier by air, others left the same...

Many reviewers complain about the staff but I found them very helpful especially as I accidentally left my ATM card in the machine at the airport and they frantically made phone calls and ran me to the airport and back with fuss or charged. The room was comfortable but noise from the bar band next door is extremely loud until...

Stayed here for two nights. Pros: It's got a great view of the river and the night market across the street room if you had a suite with a balcony and riverside view, so there's that. Cons: The hallways were darkly lit in the daytime and the non-balcony/riverside rooms were...weirdly designed. I don't really know how to explain it, but...

Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. The hotel is old. Rooms are locked using keys. No electronic security here. The rooms are fairly large. Old wooden furniture fills the room. The bed is large and comfortable. Slightly on the hard side. Bathroom is well appointed with the usual toiletries and plenty of water for a hot shower....

Back in Vientiane again after 8 years and so much have changed and yet so much the same old dusty komunist town. The Sengtawan is located just 10 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from the night market right on the Mekong, the mother of all rivers as her name is in Lao. "Ma Kong". Just cross the street...

Great location and has the basics. The beds were hard and the hotel is quite dark. Front desk was friendly. If you want value for money in a great location this is where to stay. The breakfast was basic and take your own coffee to the room because there is a kettle with no coffee or tea. Also take your...

The Sengtawan Riverside Hotel is a reasonable hotel on the Mekong river in Vientiane. It is quite an old hotel and is fairly dark but offers good, spacious living conditions and a relatively vibrant location by Vientiane standards. Sengtawan offers airport transfer as part of the stay. This was not particularly made clear on arrival but it was actively offered...

The hotel is located in a rather good location overlooking the Mekong Riverside. This is right in front of all the night spots where are the open night restaurants are located and is a pretty happening place. The hotel is somewhat average with ok facilities. I suspect it needs some further maintenance and upkeep. I had to to change three...
