Quite expensive for what it is, but okay for a few nights. The rooms are clean, and the breakfast is acceptable. The hotel is within walking distrance from both the bus station and morning market as well as the river and city center. There is free wifi in the rooms and a couple of computers for the guests to use...

Good WiFi, big rooms, and nice bed. That's it! Barely adequate hot water, zero views, noisy from street and from thin walls.... But worst of all is the completely unmotivated, untrained, and uncaring staff. I don't expect front desk staffers in developing countries to have excellent language skills, but the people working at AV have almost zero ability in English...

The laundry check list is split in two parts. One part dry cleaning and the other wash/iron. I handed them my custom made sports jacket marked for dry cleaning. It came back having been only washed and ironed with an obviously to hot iron marking the left shoulder and sleeve with shiny iron marks. I subsequently found out that they...

Spent 2 nights here, and booked the 2 huge rooms upstairs. pity the sink is in the bedroom. Breakfast is only OK, although i wish they would increase the price and allow unlimited coffee/juice. It would not take much to make this a good hotel, just a slight upgrade in quality of linen/towels etc.

Booked for 1 night in av hotel before flying back to Singapore. As our flight is really early, it is good that the hotel provides free airport transfer. Breakfast is buffet style with a good variety! The only negative thing about the hotel is that there are many mosquitoes along the corridor and in the room. You can literally see...

Hotel really clean.Very helpful staff.We weren't happy with our room,as the window was blocked off (new building next door).They immediately gave us another room. Breakfast was more than adequate.Although it could have been a bit hotter,everything was very fresh.And covered! Would definitely stay here again. Lovely...

We stayed at the AV Hotel in early January. We upgraded to a suite which was very clean, roomy and well presented. We found the staff friendly and eager to help improve their english. Breakfast was average but sufficient and the girls serving were friendly. The biggest draw back was the construction site next door. It is less than 1...

The AV is in quite a good location, about 10 minutes walk from the Mekong and the city centre. I was first shown a room with a blocked-off window (as described by someone else), but they moved me when I asked for a room with window. The room was fairly basic but very clean and very spacious. It also had...

Right near the Mekong waterfront where all the better cafes and restaurants are and tour shops. This is centrally located and easy to get to. the rooms were large and confy but basic.

We arrived at the AV this afternoon and were shown to our room which is quite spacious and with what looked like a large window behind curtains. When we opened the curtains what a shock we got as all we could see was a sheet of dark painted metal within a feet or two from outside the window. It appears...
