Reviewed 24 February 2014

I'm puzzled. The TripAdvisor reviews suggest this is a great place to stay in Vientiane, and yet here I am, in one of their rooms, puzzled. It's similar to a Holiday Inn or Days Inn or Motel Six. Plain, ordinary, minimalist. No frills. Hard bed.
I'll give them credit for the reasonably strong WIFI, but other than that....

Good points: location close to the waterfront and many dining/bar options, and not too far from some sights (eg Victory Arch), good sized room, clean
Negative points: no luggage racks in the room so you have to bend yourself double to get stuff out of your suitcase on the floor; can't read with the bedside light as globe not bright enough & too far from pillow; no shelf space in bathroom for toiletries bags etc;no indication of temperature control on basin tap; construction next door so very noisy and dusty in the open air dining area (though hardly their fault. Probably very nice when no construction.). And to top it all, they refused to give us a second room key; but after a lengthy sulk they asked us to pay a $20 deposit for the second room key! I have traveled to over 40 countries in the last 30 years and have never been asked to pay a deposit;

We checked in here late at night having been disappointed by our first choice. The staff were really helpful and the hotel proved to be excellent. The rooms were very modern stylish and spotlessly clean as were the communal areas.

The breakfast was great and the location is very central without being noisy.

A friendly, good value hotel I would whole heartedly recommend.

We spent just one night at Sabaidee on our way to Luang Prabang. We were very pleased with our stay. The hotel staff were very helpful and accomodating. The hotel was extremely clean. There was a very nice outdoor eating area in the middle of the hotel which was very nice with the basic but good quality breakfast. The hotel is a very easy walk to many restaurants and even sights.The beds were comfortable (although thinner pillows would have been nice). Also, in our room, the curtains to block out the the light from the lights in the central part of the hotel would have been good.

There was free drop off to the aiport in the morning. Free wifi in the hotel. Special thanks to Hanh (5) for taking such good care of us.

We would definitely stay here again.

Sabaidee is located near the central business district of Vientiane. We stayed two nights at Sabaidee. Even though its located at a central location, its very peaceful and quiet inside the hotel.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. Bedroom and bathroom are kept very clean and proves that the hotel has a strong housekeeping team. Do not expect any great views from the room. The best advantage of being in the hotel is the proximity to most of the places within the city.

Service was atypical of most of business hotels. Service is hurried and impersonal but adequate. We had no issues with the service.

Breakfast spread is really nice and wholesome. But the coffee too a bit of getting used to. Restaurant is open to the sky and its a great option to sit outside and enjoy the breakfast.

Free wireless provided was flawless and decent enough for a short stay.

Overall, I would rate Sabaidee as a great no non sense hotel for a few days stay in Viantiane. Its really worth it.
