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...

This was a really neat hotel. Breakfast included. Nice rooftop restaurant. Rooms were comfortable. Breakfast hot and varied. Staff very helpful. Situated directly across from the riverside food markets. Really handy, lots of food and drinks and meeting places. Nice to walk along the river front.

This hotel has a lot going for it but could do with a lot of improvement. First, the plus side. Its position is great, right beside the Mekong with great views from the rooftop bar and restaurant (to get the best sunset view go out onto the balcony and turn right). The restaurant itself serves good food and the service...

The hotel is pretty good but a bit noisy because of loud music from other restaurants. The hotel has a good restaurant view in the 5th floor. Foods are nice. Just some comment is staff should be more helpful. So, learn more how to do service industry work.

Old hotel so a bit dark and gloomy but with beautiful carved mahogany everwhere. Rooftop restaurant has great views of the Mekong, and is right next to the street restaurants. Very large en suite room, and quiet inside even though it was the New Year water festival. Not many staff speak good english, but the man at reception had excellent...

We arrived in the evening and there was already quite a lot of noise in the local area. The bed was hard and there were some unusual noises during the night that woke us up. We still can't work out what caused the noises. Breakfast was adequate. I enjoyed the noodles and rice. The Laos coffee was quite good. The...

Stay here only if you like intrusive Thai music until 11.30 at night. Very nice hotel but the Thai music will not be appreciated by farangs trying to relax in their room. Location is excellent and easy parking.

This hotel is situated on the riverside of the Mekong. It must be the scruffiest one on the street, and not the cheapest. The rooms were pretty basic and not too clean. It seems to be a very old establishment. For £40 per night, in Laos, it was expensive. But having said that, dont expect anything to be cheap in...

This hotel was part of a tour and was booked by them. It shows itself as a 3 star but I am afraid it does not deserve any rating. The whole place is very very tired and in need of a total refurbishment. The first room we were allocated had a faulty safe so we were then moved to another...

Th bathrooms are clean and tidy But lack professional finish for tiling etc. There is a good Top floor with views over the river - supposed to be rated 3rd best in Vientiane - But a bit...
