I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It is like an oasis of calm in a fairly gritty city. It's in the center of the city with many restaurants within walking distance. (Side note - the local restaurants may have no ambiance but they have the best food. The touristy places are not only overpriced, they also serve horrible food.) The breakfast selection at the Settha Palace was not grand but it was adequate. After all, one has to keep things in perspective when in a country like The Peoples' Democratic Republic of Laos. I'm afraid I didn't have any other meals at the hotel. The bar service was very good, however.
My room was very clean and comfortable and was decorated in a simple but charming French Colonial style. I didn't use the free form pool but I found it to be quite large and the gardens were well maintained.
English skills among the staff were unfortunately lacking. Trying to ask for something as simple as an ash tray for the balcony was more difficult than necessary.
