The Best Western Vientiane was a last minute find. Not having booked a hotel before arriving i was pointed towards Rue Francois Ngin street which had a good choice of cafes to get a drink and use their wifi to find a hotel. The Best Western is on this street and offered a great deal per night with free internet access and complimentary breakfast so after checking out the room this was my choice for the next five nights.
I was given a room on the fourth floor with a balcony looking down onto the street below. The room was very spacious and well appointed. Air conditioned of course which worked very well and the room also has a large bathroom. The bed was comfortable and made it easy to get a good nights sleep.
The service at the hotel was great. All of the staff were very willing to help with anything i needed and apart from sometimes coming up against a language barrier, all of my needs were met with a smile. The breakfast was average and is the only thing that is any kind of drawback with the hotel. But there are so many places to eat on the doorstep, all of which are so cheap it really didn't cause an issue.
The location couldn't have been any better. The street the hotel is on has a fantastic selection of cafe's and restaurants to choose from including Turkish, Italian, French and more. The Turkish restaurant was a favourite as was the Sinouk cafe at the end of the street nearest the river. There is also a French style baker on the street which has the best croissants i have ever had! You won't be short of great places to eat and drink on Rue Francois. The night markets next to the Mekong River are just a short walk away as well and definitely worth a visit.
The Best Western turned out to be a great choice and i would definitely stay there again.
