Not impressed. The room itself was fine although the mattress was too soft for my liking. I prefer a firm bed. I'm a middle aged woman who dresses in a relaxed fashion and was treated as such. My first night, someone arrived under the guise of 'turning down my bed.' She was clearly checking out the room to see that I wasn't up to mischief - she even opened the bathroom door to peek in. My bed wasn't turned down on any evening after that. When I went to check out, I was asked to wait until they checked my room which took about 10 minutes. I found the whole process patronising and rude. For $150 Australian dollars per night, I felt the place was overpriced, the staff were aloof and I was basically ignored (when they weren't checking up on me). I spent the rest of the week in Rimvang Guesthouse which cost 1/4 of the price. While the room wasn't as good at Rimvang, the staff were warmer, friendlier and way more attentive.

The frontage and reception area of this hotel is superb, checking in was quick with a welcome drink We had arrived on the evening of new year and we were pleased to see that the hotel had a new year dinner which was a 5 course meal with a glass of wine for 32 US dollars and was excellent. There is a small pool to the rear of reception which has chairs and a couple of tables around it. We didn’t see anyone use it as a swimming pool. We did however make use of the courtesy hotel shuttle one afternoon to visit the sister hotel that is located out of town, it was lovely. There was a large swimming pool with sun beds etc set in beautiful gardens and country side vistas. Our room at Villa Santi was basically a disappointment, it was in an annex across the road from the main building about 30 metres away. The actual building looked run down by comparison to the main building although there were outside and balcony seating. The room was an ok size and had good storage and AC. There is a fridge in the room which was noisy and the seal was very dirty. The room including furniture could do with a serious up date . The bathroom had a shower in the bath, no nonslip mat and frankly I have seen better showers in a backpacker's hostel . We were also disappointed with the quality of the bathroom toiletries. The room itself was not particularly clean . The mattress on the bed had seen better days and was not very comfortable. The main building in contrast is an architectural gem. In addition to reception and the Princess Dining Room it houses about 5 bedrooms which we have not seen internally nor have we seen these rooms advertised. Breakfast was served in the dining room with some tables on the veranda overlooking the front of the hotel . The breakfast was limited fruit choice, less than exciting and no yogurt available although eggs were cooked to order. The best thing about this hotel was the location, set in the old town within easy walking distance of some major attractions. There is also a plethora of bars, restaurants and shops nearby.

BEWARE IT’S A BAIT-AND-SWITCH SCAM. Actual hotel is nothing like the pictures. The hotel in the pictures is closed and you are placed in a shabby, old, run-down building across the street. (SEE PICTURES). However, they still charge a premium four-star price for a one-star experience. STAY AWAY, THERE ARE MUCH BETTER HOTELS IN THE AREA FOR A LOT LESS MONEY.

We spent three nights here. We used their prompt laundry service. The hotel gardens are out of this world. Swimming pool looked good. Poor internet. Room looked a little tired particularly the bathroom. Lots of mosquitoes. Awful WiFi. Heavy rain in afternoons limited time outside. Free shuttle bus into town.

Entering the hotel is like entering an old hotel set in the Indian foothills. Lots of old dark brown wood giving it a lovely atmosphere. Set in semi jungle it was like going back in time with up to date facilities. Grounds were very well kept with small streams running thro' them. Rooms very good and comfortable though the bathrooms could do with a bit of TLC as regards the grouting! Overall very good and definately recommended.

With this hotel, you have to be very careful. We were specific with our agent we wanted to stay in the central, in town, location (the other location was outside town and they have a shuttle service from both locations). Our guide brought us to the in-town location and the front desk said we were booked for the outside town location. We dug in and asked our guide to get in touch with our agent. After realizing we were not going to be moved, they (our agent, sub-agent and hotel front desk) found us a room in the annex across the street, although not the ideal room type. We have to say that the hotel is rather delightful, quaint, very spacious and was worth fighting for. My wife woke up early to see the monks in their daily ceremonial alms ritual. There was a lavish wedding across the street with about a 1,000 guests. The location is close to the market where there is food and souvenirs to be bought. Breakfast is a la carte, with pretty much whatever you want.

We stayed in the hotel in town and our room was over the road in the annex - delightful room with seating area. The hotel was fabulous with an Elephant Plunge Pool just right after a busy day sight-seeing! The breakfast was excellent, with nothing too much trouble. We had dinner there one night outside with Laos traditional dancer to entertain us, and the food was great. On our last day we took the free shuttle to the spa hotel which has the most incredible pool! We also had a traditional Laos massage, and drinks by the pool. We were able to charge this to our bill at the other hotel. We had the best of both worlds - our hotel right in town and you benefited from the lively atmosphere, the monks walking past to collect alms each morning - while having the luxury of using the out of town hotel's pool and spa! Fabulous!!
