We arrived at this boutique hotel after suffering two record cold, rainy days on a Mekong cruise. The hotel had gone out and bought oil space heaters for every room which were extremely welcome to our bone-chilled group. Meals were still outside since this part of the world does not expect such cold weather, but they provided a blanket for...

Smart and stylish hotel. Lovey gardens. Nice rooms. Well managed. Great pool. Clean and friendly. Classy furnishings. Helpful managers who are always there. Well positioned. Generally quiet. Breakfast taken outside and this can be cold in the morning.

A fantastic stay in Villa Maly with very helpful and welcoming staff. The general areas (e.g. pool, bar, breakfast room, reception etc.) of the hotel as well as the rooms were beautiful. The Walking distance to the city center made it easily accessible.

This hotel is superb in every department. I was made to feel so welcome and the staff were so keen to help and to do anything extra to make my visit pleasurable. I was given a free upgrade on arrival, and the room was opulent luxury. Highly recommended hotel in a wonderful location.

It was a short walk to the main strip in town, but enough off the beaten path it felt like a secret. Staff was very attentive (we asked for an extra towel) and the croissants at breakfast were the best I've ever had. My only regret was that the weather was too rainy to make use of the lovely pool.
