Very happy with our stay at the Dhavara in the center of Vientiane. We had this huge room on the 5th floor, and the space was great after being rather cramped in our previous hotel in Luang Prabang.
Good breakfast buffet with a lot of...More
The Dhavara is a small boutique hotel (26 rooms). The rooms are large (premier rooms are very large, convenient for those with a lot of baggages), very clean, furnished in a kind of colonial style (not sure the 'antique' phones in plastic and keys are...More
I stayed here for three nights. I booked through Agoda via Tripadvisor. (I usually book through a hotel's website, but the price was much better through Agoda for the dates I wanted.) We enjoyed out stay tremendously. The hotel is near (within a couple of...More

Please disregard my last answer - got confused with another hotel - age related problem in my case - within their website blurb - they mention colonial - the building itself is pretty ugly - see my reviews - the rooms are probably in a colonial style - wooden floors - highish ceilings - old fashioned bathroom fittings - minimalist decoration - but the building is surrounded by modern buildings - the Ansara which is close by is probably slightly more colonial - we ate at their signature restaurant - the main building is in a "colonial" style with a modern extension around the swimming pool at the rear - the area that both hotels are located in - may have once been the colonial heart of the city close to the Mekong - but Laos is not a rich country and the days of the French are long gone - the area has now been taken over by the night market and a range of eating opportunities both on and off street as well as hotels and hostels - it is very safe - but perhaps not as attractive as it was once - enjoy
