Anou Paradise Hotel Vientiane Laos.
My office booked me in this Hotel as all other Hotels we use were fully booked due to some ASEAN Major conference going on in the Capital.
Am not sure what star rating this is but would maybe put it as a 2 Star.
Located centrally with fairly easy access to anywhere you may want to go, the Building is pretty old and a little run down, slightly difficult to converse with any stay in English, so speak slowly and repeat yourself. I was booked into a VIP room which sometimes is referred to as a Suite online, $40 a night.
Have to say the room is pretty large and spacious which is something I like, the bed was fairly comfy not like many of the Asian beds which are like sleeping on a concrete floor!!
Rooms are cleanish, not spotless and many little areas not given the attention they should do in this customer orientated business, but again, not too bad, acceptable really but nothing special.
Bathrooms as the main rooms are pretty outdated and need some attention, but again scrape by inspection.
Very small TV in room which is difficult to see from the Bed, a few English language channels which are ok, HBO, AXN and a few news Channels and also a couple of Sports Channels.
Not sure how the Laundry actually works, yes they do laundry, but I think one of the Cleaning ladies does it as a side-line! No receipt or written bill, but it is very cheap and she does a good job, you will need to pay her cash though, 1 Pr Trousers, 2 Shirts, 2 underwear and 2 socks only 20,000 Kip !! And nicely done and pressed!
Breakfast is very basic, American = 1 two inch sausage 1 egg and tiny bit of Ham, but at least you get something, Coffee, Tea and Toast also available.
They also have a small in room food service of basic Asian food, Rice, Noodles etc, and they have the Restaurant downstairs with a slightly better selection of food, it is ok but nothing special, and again it is fairly cheap.
Lots of great places to eat in Vientiane though if that is a priority.
The Lift !!!! Well how do I describe that ? A very small 2-3 person lift which I am convinced will fail badly very shortly !! It groans, creaks, bangs against the side, Jolts frighteningly so !!! That bad that I stopped using it and used the stairs !! Leave that one to your own choice, but you have been warned. (Safety is not a priority in Asia)
Nice Quiet relaxed city.
