The hotel is an eyesore in such an historic town, and given the number of...

We really regret it that we paid 5 star rate for this 2 star quality hotel. It has horrible loud music from the dancing club owned and run by the hotel (within the same premise), from 11.30 to 3.30 midnight. During the day time, there is very loud noise from the construction site by the river (on the sand bank),...

The hotel is the tallest building in the city (14 stories w/ 3rd floor open-air design), by the Mekong river and you can clearly see Thailand on the other side of the river. The location is withing easy access to Fountain Square and the rest of the city attractions...
