“Best Western Vientiane ...Great Place to stay !”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

This was our second trip to Vientiane after an interval of about 2 years.

The Best Western is located right within very close walking range to many good restaurants, both Western and local restaurants!

The rooms in Best Western is sufficiently big though we were initially a bit concerned about the proximity to the road. However, it proved to be no issue and we got decent sleep every night though our rooms were directly facing the road.

The breakfast, though not the buffet type, was quite good. Guests could chose one main course from the Menu, and then help themselves to all the bread and other bakery products such as croissants etc with free flow of coffee and tea. It was very relaxing, to say the least.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly. What we liked the most was the location. Really ideal and we didnt need to make much use of our hired van and driver Khamla. We only used him to take us to Buddha Park, the reservoir and Van Vieng this time around.

It was another good holiday in Vientiane and the next time we are back in Vientiane, we'll likely stay at the Best Western again !

We expected this hotel to be of a decent standard because of the rate and it delivered. The staff were welcoming and efficient. My room was excellent and comfortable and the pool area was a pleasant place to relax after a hard day's sightseeing and also peaceful post breakfast. I can also recommend the restaurant even though you'll pay a little more than you would outside.

Room Tip: I was on the street side but I wasn't disturbed and there were lots of photo opportunities.

This place is an absolute bargain, with huge rooms, free wifi, nice balconies with a view of the street below. Breakfast was fair, but with so many restaurants, cafes and street food within a 2 minute walk, you don't need to eat in the hotel.
Even the arrogant, lazy guy in reception didn't spoil the experience.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back face a brick wall

Maybe it was because I was apprehensive about the low rate charged here that the very nice stay there surprised me and why I am giving high grades for Best Western Vientiane.

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Vientiane's tourist district. Yes, it can get busy, with all the restaurants, bars and traffic in the area. It does not have any expansive space. It is just a building by the road.

As a business hotel, it is, for my money, excellent value. The room I got was only about US$70/night but it was big, clean, had modern amenities, and had great sleep quality because of the plush bedding and pillows. The hotel also gave free Wi-Fi, which was a necessity for business clients.

The breakfast spread was fine, but not outstanding. Actually, you do not need a great restaurant here because of the eating options just outside.

The standout feature here is the remarkable service. Everyone had genuine smiles, were patient with requests and were always helpful.

Overall, Best Western Vientiane is a great base from where to explore the city and conduct business. Highly recommended.

breakfast was fine and staff friendly.I looked at several downtown hotels and many were not up to much.

Room Tip: Back if you dont mind no view is quiet

We booked this hotel last year as part of a six week trip. When staying a few days location is everything The room was large and clean It had a balcony so we could look down onto the street and a sideways view of Mekong Delta. I would say the room was tired and needed freshening up especially the bathroom.

The pool was the reason we booked this hotel but a good clean was needed. It was very dry and dusty with some building work going on in some neighbouring buildings but

i feel as the pool is this hotels USB it should have been perfect.

Opposite hotel is a lovely restaurant very reasonable called full Moon Cafe we went gain following other TA comment. We loved it.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor facing street so some noise but more relating to individual people pass...

I have always loved Laos and the Laos people and have a home across the bridge in Nong Khai so Laos is frequently on the agenda.
We flew in from a holiday in Langkawi and unfortunately the hotels forgot to collect us from the airport but this a wasn't an issue they refunded the monies without a problem. Our first room no 2013 didn't have a balcony and the net curtains could have done with a good soak and a wash... We asked to be changed and were given room no 2012 which fared better!... . Both rooms had some interesting antique furniture .hence " old glory" . Lovely staff who greet you with lovely smiles and very pleasant service. Great location near the Mekong , opposite " Sticky Fingers". A lovely bar with wifi... We have eaten two nights in a row at the Japanese Restaurant Fuiji which is attached with excellent prices. Sitting outside watching the world go by has been. Great experience.
Enjoyed a Tuk Tuk ride for 10 bucks throughout the city for 3 hours.
