“Perfect”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

It's good location. Away from the noisy and easy to reach for the foundation as a mark point to go to riverside. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Always smile and give you a direction for what you are looking for. Just the room a bit small but very clean and nice decoration. If you want to get an hotel to stay this is one of recommend.

We made the booking via Booking.com for 1 night ( not much vacancies in Vientiane in July this year) But ended up staying 5 nights.
Have quite bad reviews , which is unfair. If you book a cheap room, well then don't expect 5 star accommodation. We paid a little extra and got a lovely room with balcony facing the quiet street.
wifi, satellite TV , the smallest bathroom I've ever seen - but it worked fine.
No meals served, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby.
Good service in the reception with at least 1 person speaking reasonable english .
We found out on arrival, that we could have had the room cheaper if just had walked in. When we pointed that out, we got an extra bed for free....
The Xang Koo restaurant nearby is strongly recommended !

Room Tip: Balcony room facing the street

We stayed 4 night's at iHouse and were extremely unimpressed with the whole experience. The staff barely spoke English and were very rude and uninterested with any of our request's or question's. There was no breakfast offered. We found the bathroom to be in a unsatisfactory state. The shower is in the toilet and after showering everything needs to be wiped down in order to use the toilet. Also toilet paper can not be flushed down the toilet as it blocks easily so it must be place in the bin provided which we found to be extremely unhygienic. We also wanted our laundry to be done which proved difficult. They took our laundry and when we went downstairs to leave for the day we were told that they did not wash underwear and that we would have to take it next door. Another thing that was a joke was that it is clearly signed in the hotel that they lock the doors at 12am although each time we arrived back at the hotel after 11pm the doors were already locked and we had the wake the man sleeping in the lobby up to let us in. The only thing this hotel has going for it is the fact it's in a great location with many great restaurants nearby, so our suggestion would be to find a different hotel in the same location.

the hotel is located in center of vientiane, this is ok. Room is too small and without any window. Toilet is 1 square meter, dirty and outdated. I have picture to proof my review. Wifi connection slow.

Room Tip: If you want go this please Ask room with window or balcony.

My partner and I stayed in this place for two nights. We probably had the best room in the place with good views, however, it was not the best atmosphere. The shower is basically in the toilet and the water did not drain properly. The breakfast is a joke and the staff not very friendly. The location is pretty good.

Room Tip: many rooms don't have windows to the outside

We only stayed at iHouse for one night despite intending to stay for three. The Wi-Fi wasn't working in our room, when we informed them of this they didn't seem to care. Later that night we informed someone else on reception of our problem but again, they didn't care - so we left!

The room was ok, big comfortable bed and felt fairly spacious despite the lack of a window (which wasn't mentioned at the time of booking). No window did however mean that the room was quiet and dark so made for a good lie in.

The bathroom was small with the shower directly over the toilet basin but the shower was hot and powerful.
