We paid 140000 kip for a room (set price) and because we were only staying one night and couldn't be bothered continuing to look for other places (we took a look at the Mixok but it was too expensive) so decided to stay. We arrived mid afternoon and left the room after we checked in for a last busy night...

I don't have any complaints about the standard of the hotel, my stay was very pleasant. Except for my last night. I was having a drink in the lobby and the night manager/supervisor got in to a fight with his wife. I had to intervene the first to stop him beating her and then two more time before he could...

We were three girls who stayed in a three-bed dorm on the fourth floor and found that two of three beds were very comfortable. The aircon worked well (we had the remote to adjust the temperature ourselves), it was very clean and we will never forget the free breakfast. The wifi was hardly ever working. The service is great, we...

If you go here do not stay in the room directly across from reception. No window, air conditioning that only works on freezing or not at all, and the underlying smell of old oil and fried eggs when you turn on the fan that is supposed to bring go in fresh to compensate for the lack of a window. And...

Did come to Vientiane by bus from Viang Vieng and the bus dropped me at the doorsteps of Mixay. Since i wanted to go there anyway I was quite happy. Got a single room at the second floor for 60.000 kip. Realized later that next door you get singles starting from 40.000 kip. There was a bed with a real...

I have read a number of reviews of guesthouses in Vientiane where visitors complained of bed bugs. I was so worried and made some research on-line and understand that this guesthouse is clean and free from bed bugs and thus head for it. The room was indeed clean and there was no bed bugs. The air-con is switched on at...

First impression is that this place tries but after a day, you realize they don't. The place is fairly clean and is a relatively good price with a free breakfast. However, the WiFi never worked and there were many excuses given to the various guests who made complaints about this. The owner demands everything to be paid up front unlike...

We just spent one night. 85.000 for a room with no bathroom. They only have wifi at the reception. We had a hundred mosquitos in our room. The walls need a painting. The shared bathroom was not very clean and no hot water. Nice situation and breakfast included.
