Inter City Boutique Hotel
Ranked #55 of 93 Hotels in Vientiane
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed here over 4 years ago and this was my first time back.

The hotel is what can be described as, quaint. Rooms are very dated, but for me this adds to the charm. French style doors reminds of the colonial past of this lovely country. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom facilities all in good working order too. Would definately recommend this place.

A nice hotel in a decent spot overlooking the Mekong. Can be noisy at night due to the bar next door and the main road. Breakfast is simple but nice. Rooms were very clean with comfortable beds and a safety deposit box.

This place isn't bad. It's right by the river and has some positives but it needs some work. The breakfast isn't great and the rooms do need some work. The A/Cs in some of the rooms don't work great and the rooms are a little run down. The doors to the rooms had massive gaps in them leaving the A/C to go out the door. The bathrooms need work and the shower heads could use replacing. On a budget it's not a bad stay though and they have good tv channels in English.

I have had the misfortune to stay in a few bad hotels over the years and the Inter City in Vientiane, Laos ranks right there with one of the worst. I should go and check the dictionary definition of 'boutique' perhaps but the Inter City and 'boutique' don't go together in my opinion. The moment the taxi pulled up at the font of the hotel, my heart sunk "I've made a poor choice!".

I had a deluxe room, I would hate to see the basic rooms. The bed was shocker with the feeling of springs coming through the lumpy old mattress. The air con rattled noisily through the night. Although the was hot water in the shower, there was none over the hand basin. The TV showed 65 channels of 'snow' as if there was no antenna connected. The curtains were faded, the floors rough wood. Breakfast was poor. The hotel looked like some freakish art collection. No maintenance had been done, in fact the place has moved beyond maintenance. Destruction remains an option. Reception staff were generally pleasant and helpful. Other staff were indolent and couldn't care less. Avoid this place. There are many better options available in Vientiane.

The interiors were good. Not that impressive, but you know it had been thought out. You can appreciate the effort also in the corridors going to your room.

Good location. Lots of restaurants in the area. And just across a night bazaar that mushrooms in the evenings. (NOTE: you can buy lots of goodies at very, very, VERY cheap prices)

A very big CON for me: the a/c is a bit too warm despite cranking it up. I don't know, maybe it is the sweaty summer weather. But the entire hotel is very warm for me.

We booked this guest house through the website Agoda. A friend had recommended it as he had stayed here before. The hotel is located on the River running through Vientiane and is located fairly central to the city. The hotel itself is dated and I would not recommend staying there. The outside plants are dead, the AC barely worked, the towels are paper thin, silvers of soap were provided for the “convenience” of the guests, and there is no hot water in the bathroom sink. The breakfast included with the room is very poor, the best and only part worth eating was the bread and fruit. Overall not a comfortable stay and the hotel is loking run down. I did like the artifacts in the lobby..

I booked a suite which proved to be spacious, with plenty of hardwood furnishings in traditional style. It was lovely! However, the rest of the hotel is shabby and lacking in maintenance. The initial view of the outside made me think that I was about to enter a slum. Check-in was efficient but the lift does not reach all floors so I had to navigate dark, dirty corridors and stairs to my room. Food is barely adequate with breakfast being awful. Beer Lao is present and the 'Gold' is to be recommended. Transport in the area is by tuk-tuk - when you can find one. Bills, like everywhere else in Vientiane, are presented in $, ThB and Kip. However, be aware, that no matter which currency you try to pay with, you will get your change in Kip. It is best to put everything on to the room bill.

Room Tip: Book nothing less than the de-lux suite and eat elsewhere.
