This hotel worked out great for us (myself and two buddies). We found it by recommendation from another Westerner who was at a local expat hangout restaurant. (We just sort of showed up in Vientiane and started walking around the river area where all the tourists area) The property is hidden around a corner and seems fairly new. The rooms are nice sized, modern and clean. Wifi is in the lobby, but you can get the signal on the second floor. We did not take the breakfast option as that is $5 more and there are restaurants all over and some within crawling distance. Our room price was $22USD and well worth it and a great value in our option. Water pressure was good, water heaters worked great, wifi was fine. Overall a very good property.
The location is spot-on. You can walk all over the river front area and rent motorbikes just up the street for touring. Traffic in Vientiane is not that heavy and is civil. 2 nights in Vientiane is plenty.
The staff (as indicated in other posts) is not bubbly and friendly but they are not rude either. They are just kind of "there!" Not really helpful, chatty or welcoming. They just do their job. We tried joking around a bit. We did manage a little smile from the young women that worked there.
I would stay here again if visiting Vientiane and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good clean, newer hotel and they are on a budget.
