“A stroke of luck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

At 9pm after a long bus ride we found ourselves stumbling around Vientiane trying to find somewhere to stay. We chanced down the alley beside the completely full backpacker hostel next door and found VGH. It was a little out of our budget but the manager generously gave us a mate's rate! For what we paid for we were thankful for the luxury.

We were two couples coming from a long night bus travel from Luang Prabang. As we were planing to arrive early in the morning, around 4am, we booked two rooms for that same night so we could get some sleep and rest as soon as we arrived.

We booked and paid for the rooms at AGODA.COM and still we called them the day before to notify about our arriving time to avoid any confusion. But for our surprise when we got there at 6am (our trip took longer than expected) there was only ONE room available. The guy at the front desk told us, calmly, to leave our bags together at one room and wait a couple of hours until the other was ready. But, if he had already paid for it and called to inform our late arrival, why did they give our room to someone else????

The guy asked us to wait for the manager to come, which he did only at 8am (two hours after our arrival). The manager gently apologized and was willing to pay us back 30 usd while we had paid 50 usd for it. The reason? The fee that he needed to pay to Agoda for using the services. Unbelievable! Then he agreed to give us all the money from that night back, but we couldn't get in the room before check in time anymore. He didn't even tried to compensate all our trouble. After much talking, he agreed to pay us back and let us into the room. It was almost 9am.

That being said, the hotel is ok. The room was clean and the bed was big and confortable. The bathroom was tiny but the shower was ok. Air con working perfectly. Safety box inside the room, mini bar. The balcony they advertise in the website is nothing more than two chairs in the hall.

The pool was ok, but not worth paying more for it. The breakfast wasn't anything remarkable and was served in an absolutely charmless place. We didn't even bother to eat there, just went straight to one of the french bakeries where I could have a real coffee, and not nescafe.

I would recomend it to people, but after all that stress on the first day its hard to make compliments...

Never mind that pool, which looks much bigger in the pictures, but still a decent size for a stroll and clean.
The place is very clean. I arrived at 2:30am, and 2 guys were sleeping in the lobby waiting for my arrival. They even checked in a Japanese guy without reservations, whom I met on the buss.
The room is spacious with a big bed, even mini bar and decent size shower head.
Breakfast was included, and I couldn't complain about the options available.
Lastly I stayed here a few days earlier, and they allowed me to shower by the pool late afternoon after my friend had checked out the room already.
The room is spacious

Having spent 20 years in the international oil & gas industry, I have stayed at 5-star hotels so much, I avoid them now. That being said, the friendliness of staff, the service, and attention to detail at Vientiane Garden Hotel is 5-star. This is a small business doing all the right things. The rooms are new with contemporary decor, it is quiet, the open area is full of trees and the grounds are constantly maintained and cleaned. It is an 8-10 min. walk to the day market and shopping areas, the major restaurant area, and several temples.

This hotel is in a good location with nice restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The staff were very friendly and professional. Upon my arrival, they greeted me with a papaya and watermelon juice. The breakfast was much more than expected with many different selections. The rooms were standard and bathrooms were just ok. Oh, and be sure to get a room near the back because the restaurant near the street can get a bit noisy.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back will be quieter.

It was clean, elegant and new. The hotel property was small, but it lived up to its name, because of the lush vegetation that it has with all the trees and plants surrounding the hotel. It was also nice to have trees around the swimming pool where it looked like an oasis of some sort. We had a great short stay here for 2 days before we moved on to a different city. We spent a total of 1 week in Laos, and this place really eased our aching joints and muscles. It was a relaxing and calming experience, with the great atmosphere and the helpful staff. We were thrilled to be here.

We stayed here when we travelled to Vientiane, and we had a very enjoyable stay. My favorite thing about this place was the hospitality that they showed us throughout the entire stay. They picked us up from the airport and then drove us back when we left towards home, and the staff was highly friendly and helpful to us during the entire time. The room was also very comfortable, and the overall settings were really nice, cozy and creative. I believe that this place is one of best you could find in this area, and I strongly recommend it to everyone.
