This Guesthouse is well located not too far from the river and close to shops and restaurants. My room was on the ground floor which was very nice. There was a terrace just outside and also a lovely courtyard to eat meals in. My room was comfortable but a little small. The bed took up most of the room but...

A simple basic guest house located in a convenient spot. Across the road there are places for massages, a cafe at the corner of the street, and a few minutes walk to Wat Sisaket and That Dam (Black Stupa) and another few minutes walk to the Riverside. From the outside of the hotel, it looks small but interior is spacious...

The installations are pretty nice and because of the picture and reviews we were expecting a lot. It was ok but not amazing. We had to wait a little bit because the booking had not been notified and they gave us a wrong room. However they were nice with us and tried to make us happy.

I enjoyed by stay at Malinamphu. The pros are the customer service. Most of the staff spoke enough English to get around Vientiane. They were also willing to hold our bags before check in and long before our flight to Luang Prabang. The rooms seemed clean enough but nothing special for the price. I know $38 is really not a...

I have stayed at the Mali Namphu many times in the past. This visit was after about a 5 year break. I was surprised that the price has nearly doubled. The room smelled moldy, the shower sprayer wasn't functioning properly, and over all was not worth what they are now charging. The only improvement I noticed was in their breakfast....

I stayed here 1 night and found it to be good value for the price. the room was nice and came with a fridge and the WiFi was strong. The hotel is in a good location near the river and is only a short walk to the shopping center. On the negative the breakfast was a bit basic and you...

Clean room with ample breakfast served in a courtyard. My only gripe is that they promised a free hotel pick-up that made me do the booking but they never showed up at the airport! The only explanation they gave is "the driver did not come to work today." During checkout they had a huge sign at reception "FREE SERVICE TO...

We read pretty good reviews about this hotel so we had high expectations, but our stay was very "meh". As soon as we entered our room for the first time, we noticed that it hadn't been cleaned yet and there was still stuff (used towels and used soap) from the previous guest in the bathroom. We notified the staff and...

We stayed for 6 nights in February. I thought this hotel was excellent value for money. The room was clean, bed comfortable and free water provided daily. I found the breakfast to be excellent, being able to choose 2 items from the menu meant we were not hungry again until late afternoon. Some days there were some options unavailable but...
