I just wanted to comment on the showing of the movie CHANG on the premises. Its a wonderful experience: a 1925 movie, showing the hard life the Lao people had. Its history about Lao and about making movies. The hotel has a nice set up for the movie and good service is offered.

Loved the room (suite). We were upstairs with a balcony overlooking the Mekong. Sitting room (for luggage) with sofa, Bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom was very modern with a new stand alone tub (beautiful) and a 6 person shower. The accommodation was excellent. Breakfast was good though the buffet was not nearly as huge as larger hotels. the coffee and...

I spent two days at this property in a second level suite; I felt like I had gone back in time but for the access to in room internet and very functional AC. The hotel is located well with a view of the Mekong river and adjoining a celebrated temple. Hotel guests sat outside at sunrise to make rice offerings...

Quaint old hotel with all the oddities that go Ruth refurbining a former palace. Our room was fine but others complained about multiple floors and tv not located in bedroom. All I can say is the room was clean, bed was hard and nice bath products. A member of our group visited the spa and raved about the message but...

We stayed here for the second time in four years. We requested a suite with a balcony view of the Mekong River. The accommodations are attractive, and quite private. There are four units per floor, with only two floors in each small building. There is no pool, but rather, a very pretty long water feature. The location is superb! We...

The rooms are spacious , tv on the ground floor but not in the bedroom . Comfortable bed and spacious bathroom . wifi and tv work fine. jacuzzi on ground floor was a surprise and we actually used it a few times. breakfast just soso nothing to write home about. The historic aspect is overblown.. nothing regal about the place......

We had a large suite (Mekong Suite #1) which included an anteroom which could have been used as another bedroom (it contained a bed, a sofa and a chair). The suite was on the ground floor, but it still required steps down from the check-in desk, or steps up from the other side of the grounds. The suite also includes...

Location is terrific...near the river, shrines and open market. This is a small hotel and rooms are authentic but had every amenity we needed. Beds were quiet hard, but I think that is typical of the region. On the evening of our stay, there were musicians and dancers performing traditional Loa songs for guests...really charming. Small reflecting pool with twinkle...

For us there are no major problems with this hotel. The location is great near the river and a short walk to the main street. But the hotel itself is very tired. Our room which was traditional style smelt foisty throughout our stay. The bathroom was small with very old plumming. Breakfast buffet just average with uninterested staff just going...

This was a nice hotel in a great location. It was a little pricey, but we did enjoy our stay. I would definitely stay again. Don't expect a 5-star JW Marriott, this is pretty local, which was refreshing compared to the big city hotels. Think, check out of reality for a while. Everything is a short walk away. The hotel...
