Paid $22.50 a night for a double standard room. Booked it online after previously coming to Vientiane and struggling to find a room when I arrived late. I was aware that the room and bathroom would be tiny and that the rooms had no windows so there were no surprises in that department.
Pros are, good location, a minutes walk from the fountain.
Good daytime staff who speak good English. They were nice enough to phone our transfer service to Bangkok to reconfirm our pick up times.
Good WIFI connection on all floor.
Good plasma tv with quite a fee English speaking channels.
2 bottles of compliemtary water given daily.
Cons we stayed in room 558 which was on top floor.
Worst soft mattress ever! Slept on the first night as I was so tired but didn't sleep at all on the second night.
Cutting corners as our bed sheets had patches of materials sewn on everywhere. The sheets also looked very old and worn away.
Grey flimsy towels. No hand towels given.
When I tried to complain to the night staff I gave up as he could not understand a word I said. He finally said is hotel fully booked.
Huge amounts of dust under the bed. Rest of the room very clean. I can imagine it would be very hard to clean under the bed as the headboard were ver heavy to move.
I stayed in hotels and guesthouses in Asia that cost between $8-20 a night and they were all better than this one. If I stayed longer and had to stay here again would certainly test the mattress beforehand and the shower before taking the room.
