A very friendly hotel. The rooms are big, well maintained and very clean, it has an nice pool just next to the Mekong river. The restaurant is also overlooking the Mekong river. The only draw back is that it is located in an area where there is nothing to do, no interesting town or village to roam around. You can...

Our room had a balcony overlooking the Mekong river and we had the most spectacular views of sunrise over the Mekong. Many guests woke up early to see/photograph it. The hotel also had a lovely swimming pool. We stayed for two nights with a night in between. When we returned the staff instantly returned a mobile phone to us that...

Hotel has superior service and good quality breakfasts. The rooms are clean, good in size and has a beautiful pool and good Wifi. It is on an Island so there is not much around, but has a camping feel. There are many insects there, especially at night.

This hotel is perfect for sitting by the pool and reading books. It is clean, quiet and relaxed. If you want anything else, you are in the wrong place. We have long since ceased to expect any form of serviceoriented mindset from staff anywhere in Laos. If you want something, and that includes your bill, your menu etc etc, you...

After few kilometres by a bit bumpy road, right by the western side of the river Mekong, in a small village, is this well maintained lovely hotel. We were welcomed and checked in easily and most friendly. Our room on the first floor was simple, but spacious and comfortable wirh nice views from the balcony. Furniture were quite worn but...

Comfortable rooms with all necessary facilities. Strangely cheaper rooms have the best views? Breakfast good but our other meals we have had at the sister hotel restauarant just up the road. Much less formal and food great.

Lovely hotel right on the river. Comfortable room. All rooms look over the pool and Mekong. Breakfast adequate but limited. Not a lot to do. Dolphin watching close by, waterfalls and quiet roads to cycle on.
