“nice but average”
Reviewed 28 February 2008

hotel and room style & design: nice / personal / good internet access / pool: little
location: near to the center but you need a tuc tuc / beside of the hotel is a smelly laguna wich should prepare serious mosquito problems during the summer period
staff: friendly but mostly unqualyfied (no wonder, some of them get 50 $ per month and have zero training)
food: western: not good / asian: ok / breakfast: average
check in: ok

We arrived at Vientiane in the evening, fairly whacked after flying in from London,and were collected from the airport by the Hotel transport and driven through the deserted streets to Green Park.

It looked lovely, all lit up for the festive season and we were made very welcome and, after a complimentary drink, show to our room. The sign of a good hotel is how they respond to problems and the front office performed admirably.

The beds are firm but they provided extra under blankets within 5 mins. The water in the bathroom went off (it is pumped) and they fixed it, again within 5 mins, and they phoned to check everything was OK.

The rooms are well furnished with TV.Air Con. (not needed at night in the winter) safe, great bathroom with massive tub and a balcony overlooking the central pond area or pool.

The pool area has 10 loungers and is popular from mid afternoon when guests return from town. The hotel grounds are full of tropical trees and plants

The Spa is very good with Lao massage at $15. The first floor dining room with outside deck area serves excellent breakfasts with a wide choice and good lao coffee.

At lunch there is a snack menu, again with a wide choice - the tuna sandwich with fries is as good as it gets.

Dinner menu is a mix of Asian,Lao and Western dishes - highly recommend the sweet and sour fish and the peppered steak , also the goat cheese salad. The service is "relaxed", this is Laos after all! The wine list is pretty good and the house white (by the glass) in fine but steer away from the Portugese house red -grim!

New Years Gala Dinner at US$35 (including unlimited wine) was great vale and enormous fun with live band and Lao dancing. Many of the tables were taken by non resident expats which made it a really good mix and a fun atmosphere.

Whilst it a little way out of town it is only 10 mins walk to Talet Sao indoor market - one of the best, and cheapest in SE Asia. You can see its' roof from the dining room balcony.

Tuktuks wait outside the hotel and cost $3 for a down town trip, Vientiane is so different to the rest of Asia with the French influence of pavement cafes, wide roads on a grid pattern but the big thing you notice is the calmness of the traffic - all very sedate.

We used the hotel car ($10 an hour for driver and English speaking member of staff) for our own tour - try to get to the Kaysone's old house (behind his Memorial) situated in what was the CIA's "Six Klick City" compound - a real time warp.

One of the great things about the Green Park is the smiling and helpful staff, inspite of their limited English (and French). We had originally tried to get into the Setta Palace but having visited it we are glad it was full as we much prefer Green Park.

In summary - good place to stay, good food, nice position and smiling staff - what else do you want?

  • Liked — Smiling friendly staff and good food.
  • Disliked — The house red!

Due to a late flight, we did not arrive at the hotel until dark, so the next morning when we went out for breakfast we were surprised to see the very lovely grounds and pool area. This is a relatively new hotel and service, food and staff were all well above average. Seems to cater somewhat to the businessman but stlll meets all the needs of the vacation traveler.

  • Liked — The upstairs restaurant--very good food.

Stayed one nights at the Green Park Boutique Hotel.
I must say this is a Western class standard Hotel in Vientiane.
The rooms where amazing, beautiful timber, tradional look.
Wonderful service, could not fault it, nice court yard gardens & pool, with all the rooms facing the pool court yard.
the restraunt was upstairs, with indoor outdoor deck set up, very nice, though the view was nothing special, being of the town itself.
this property is a definate must if you want just something a little bit more special if you are in Vientiane.
I would not hesitate to stay agian, just be aware though that Hotels are cheap in Laos, comparing with Thailand, but you do not have the same amount of properties, so i think this pushes the prices up in Laos.
Thailand being more established for the tourist dollar, so you have far more oppotunity to find a good bargin there, this property is not cheap, (approx $140 US) there are many other cheaper hotels in town, but not to this quality I'm sure.

Stayed here 2 nights in early Nov 07 as part of an Indochina tour. Owing to so little time and so much to see elsewhere in town, did little else other than wash, sleep and eat breakfast - without complaint. Would have liked to check out the attractive pool. Despite previous comments, found the breakfast to be all we expected - but agree the juices are not the best feature. The staff are very courteous and willing but clearly have not had the opportunity to receive the standard of training a large, multinational organisation can offer. But their smiles, politeness and attentiveness make up for a lot.. Very much liked the style of the place. Despite being out of the centre of the city, rooms on the road side of the hotel can be a little noisy early in the morning from the trucks heading from out of town towards all the main markets which are not that far from the hotel, so try and get a room away from the road if you wish a lie in. While the location is not the best feature of the hotel, somewhere a little more central might have been preferred, we were able to walk easily in daylight into the more buzzy part of town - everything is relative! - past the market and major colonial buildings such as the post office. Don't do it after dark unless you have a torch/flashlight as there are too many opportunities to twist an ankle. And, you'd miss the fun of negotiating a tuk-tuk driver down to $1 per person for a thrilling ride. Did not try the restaurant as it was much more fun to eat down by the Mekong each night.

Not being able to secure rooms at the Settha Palace which had been recommended to us we decided on the Green Park. It was an excellent choice : the staff is VERY nice and helpful, the hotel has wonderful rooms overlooking a beautiful garden and pool. The hotel is slightly out of the center of the city which turned out to be an advantage . We did not have any meals at the hotel so I am unable to make any commentaries in that respect.

Green Park hotel is a little bit out of town in Vientiane but there are not many good choices closer to the centre. In any case it's only a 5-10mn tuk-tuk ride to the centre (about $5).
The hotel is very clean, nicely decorated, and the staff and management are extraordinarily friendly and helpful.
Breakfasts are very good and our kids enjoyed the pool after a hot day's visiting Vientiane on foot.
We would definitely return there when in Vientiane.
