“Good choice for short stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2011

The hotel is in a great location, nice neighbourhood with easy access to most of the city sites. The room was large, clean and comfortable with good Wi-Fi and TV with good choice of channels. Good hot shower with wash hand basin located in bedroom which is odd, but you get used to it. Breakfast not that good but adequate and if you want better selection you have nearby bakeries/cafes etc . Staff here are bit over formal but nice enough, free airport transfer (at 4am) was very good, the hotel is literally 10mins from airport. All in all a good choice for a few nights in Vientiane.

This hotel is centrally located for almost everything and you can move easily around the city from here. The rooms, especially my deluxe room is huge, great Wi Fi signals, very clean, good new towels and bed linen, walk in shower, ample cupboard and desk space and multi channel LCD Television. For the budget or longer stay traveller, they don't get much better value than this.

No lift or swimming pool, so if you need those, this place isn't for you. Staff attentive, friendly, helpful and polite.

Sleep quality excellent with no outside noise and quiet air conditioning.

Room Tip: Try deluxe rooms on third floor, great value.

The hotel is close to the town centre without being right in it. 10 minutes walk gets you to the main restaurants and shops.
Service is good and there is free internet. Breakfast not up to much.
But the rooms were clean and the staff helpful. It is a mid-range hotel and good value for money.

Very good, will definitely come back! Near good Lao restaurant, in a quieter area, not in the middle of the busy touristic area! Very good value, nice design, clean, helpful staff!

Having stayed in December 10 I had no hesitation in booking again at the AV Hotel. It doesn't have the most attractive facade but please ignore that as what lies inside is a most comfortable and well decorated Hotel.
The room was larger than is the norm with dark wooden furniture offset by a crisp white background, clean,sparklingly so. Large bathroom, shower only with a vanity unit inset in the main bedroom area.
Good free wifi internet connection. PC available in the lobby.
Breakfast available in the lobby as well. I always go to ''The Scandinavian Baker'' near the fountain for what must be the best breakfast in Vientiane so can't comment on the hotel fare.
The hotel is centrally located on the quiet end of the road. Construction is still progressing next door I was located on the opposite side of the hotel and heard no noise nor much noise in passing. All in all would thoroughly recommend.

Awful stay with drilling RIGHT NEXT TO OUR WINDOW starting at 06.30 in the morning...

What did the staff do when we called them to see if we could change rooms? -nothing.

And really, for a hotel this "nice", the least I would have expected is an excuse. (instead the person on call mumbled something about having to discuss this with their manager who comes in at 10, I dont think this kind of reply is good enough for the level the hotel is claiming to be having.)
For this reason I wouldnt recommend AV Hotel even when the construction work is finished. Its a place where they dont seem to care much for their guests. Its the biggest disappointment in my two month long trip. We really heard great things about this hotel and was so disappointed.
