“Great Location, Clean Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

We stayed there for 4 nights in January 2013. The location is great, close enough to walk to the Talat Sao market, to the bus station, to riverfront, Wat Sisaket, fountain square.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast was mediocre, nothing to shout about but enough to start the day with.

Where do I start? One positive is loction - quite close to the main streets and riverfront. Apart from this, there's not much else going for it. The room smelt like cigarette smoke and was very lack lustre - bare white walls with old furniture and the huge four poster bed... it seemed rather instituitionalised, like an old dorm? The staff at reception were all rude and/or compalcent. Not one of them smiled or seemed welcoming. For $60 a night, anywhere in the world, not worth it.

For the price we paid for the executive suite this is very good value. We had a very large airy room , clean linen and towels , modern tv, fridge, but a very basic bathroom (tiled) no shelves, mirror or hooks. There are no frills in the bedroom, reception or dining room but hotel is clean and air-conditioned. Breakfast was very basic and there was little attempt to fill empty dishes. Most staff do not speak english however everything went smoothly during our trip and we had no complaints with the hotel.

The hotel is quite new and the room that we stayed is quite big and clean. Most staffs at the reception can't speak English except for one or two. Food prices in the restaurant is not appealing and you can easily find yourself something within walking distance.

We have stayed many times in Vientiane and have found that the AV hotel is not only in a great location being at the end of the main street in the old town but very good value for money the rooms are very clean and come with a nice hot breakfast, the hotel it close to Fountain Sq (now that it is finished it is a must to see at night) and what we think is one of the best restaurants in Vientiane The Cave.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are very good no need to upgrade

We stayed for 15 nights and found the hotel really good value. The complementary breakfast was always fresh and more than adequate. We really appreciated the thoughtful design of the rooms, the amenities in them and the space we had! We were easy walking distance to many of the city's attractions, night market and restaurants. The best value hotel around the CBD and we'll be choosing it for our next Stay in Vientiane.
