“Old World Charm in a good way; great value.”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The Villa came recommended so we went to check it out for our last 2 nights in Vientiane.
We immediately liked the look and feel of the place.
The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The manager was friendly and fun to deal with, and his singing is not too bad either :). The pool was lovely after an afternoon in the heat. Breakfast could do with an 'upgrade'.
A/C, fridge, wifi (intermittent). Off-street parking. Good location in a quiet alley; about a 15-20 minute walk from the restaurants.
Very good value for money.

I have been visiting Vientiane for the past 10 years and Villa Manoly is my new favorite hotel. It's a little off the beaten track, but only 15 minutes' walk from the center of town or a cheap tuk tuk ride away. The best thing about it is the pool, a real oasis after a hot day of sightseeing or just walking around. Service is friendly and efficient. Breakfast is the same every day, but that's okay if you're not staying too long. Rooms are spacious and clean and all have balcony or patio. Showers are hot and water pressure good. For the price, it's one of the best deals you'll find. I will definitely return!

Four of us - two couples - stayed at Manoly for three nights in December / January and it was a great experience. Yes, there were mosquitoes, but funnily enough not one of us got bitten! The rooms, while a little basic, were spacious and comfortable and brilliant value for the price. The other guests were interesting and friendly and the staff just lovely. We had a wonderful time there and loved the fact that it was a haven of peace and quiet away from the city centre. I would highly recommend it as a place to stay.

Room Tip: We had one of the garden rooms on the ground floor, handy to the patio and pool with a little area f...

Excellent little hotel away from the centre but within walking distance. Pleasant relaxing gardens and pool. Friendly and entertaining ( jokes and music) receptionist who will also help you arrange further travel. Guay was most helpful and solicitous.

Room Tip: Choose those with a garden view and small private balcony.

Traveling with 2 children the Manoly was perfect. Large gardens to run around and a pool, great to retreat to after full days sightseeing. There are two family rooms which are adjoining rooms, we stayed here twice on this trip rooms 205/206 are slightly better than 203/204. Can recomend this hotel for friendlyness and location, just far enough out but still close enough. With kids would recomend hiring bikes for the duration of stay in city then getting anywhere is a breeze and kids loved wizzing around.
also round the corner fromteh hotel is the must see Cope Museum, not well publicised but not to be missed.
Guay is a star, the owners should value this young man as it is his personality that makes this hotel especially memorable. When Guay has a day off the service standard declines.

Fantastic place to stay! The best things about this hotel were the beautiful, quiet garden, the big size of the rooms and the lovely wooden decor. Villa Manoly was a great place to relax.The downside of the beautiful garden is that there are LOTS of mosquitos. If you're planning to stay here, you'll definitely need to plan for how to avoid getting bitten and get a good night's sleep. Luckily we'd brought a mosquito tent with us, so we had no problems. Maybe email ahead and ask the hotel to prepare a mosquito net for you.

What a charming colonial style home with character, looks lived-in, with overhanging vines, shrubs, a pool, and a nice outdoor eating area where breakfast was served. Guay (I apologize if the spelling is wrong) was our host, had a great sense of humor, and made our stay memorable. Our room was on the first floor in the old wing for $25.00 a night and included a nice little terrace with chairs to relax after a day out and about. While on the first floor, the terrace and room felt quite quiet and private, perhaps due to the surrounding shrubbery and landscape design. Our bed was comfortable and the room clean. Another perk of this place is the sweet and charming cafe located a block away called Kung's Cafe Lao. Be sure to go! Ask Guay about how to get there if you're not sure.
Willa Manoly is about a ten minute walk to central Vientiane and we couldn't have chosen to stay in a better area. It is a bit removed from everything but not far or out of the way by any means! Perfectly placed, quiet and a nice walk to and from the central area.
