Green Park Boutique Hotel
Ranked #6 of 93 Hotels in Vientiane
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 November 2008

All I heard and read about with regard to high class hotels in Vientiane was Settha Palace this and that. Well, I'm sure Settha Palace is wonderful but they could not--until the last minute--find availability for both of our nights in Vientiane so we booked at the Green Park. We paid about the same or a bit less than Settha Palace but I was very, very satisfied.

From the start, I found the airport pickup and the drop-off/pickup service to town very flexible and comfortable. New cars, nice drivers. The lobby is well air-conditioned with helpful, smiling staff.

Our room was well-appointed, had a great view of their absolutely exquisite pool area, and their bathroom was modern and fascinating. I wish I had a photo but basically, they have a glass wall adjacent to the length of the tub in the bathroom. On the other side of the glass wall is basically a fully-private, 100% enclosed garden that you cannot enter. It could sound a little exhibitionist/voyeur-like but trust me, it is none of that and only very cool and peaceful even.

The hotel location is very convenient. We walked practically everywhere with no hassle and felt safe doing so. I say this because I recall reading people saying the hotel was out-of-town, etc. It is a 5-min. shuttle from the center of town on the hour in the evening with a pickup time of YOUR choosing. They will shuttle you to the airport at no charge. The walk to the main temples is less than 10-15 minutes. I don't deem this an inconvenience. It's also a 5-10 min. walk from the main market, which is fun to shop at and the biggest in Laos.

The pool was not only stunning but comfortable. The pool towel service could be more attentive though. The business center is sufficient with two modern PCs and is free. The spa was alright but I'd recommend going to a place in town as you'll get at least as good a treatment for a better price.

Finally, check out Caruso Lao crafts while there. www.carusolao.com. Owner Sandra Yuck is delightful and makes the best quality silks, woodcrafts, and silver items you'll find in Laos and probably the best you'll find in all of SE Asia. Plus, she is fluent in English having grown up in Canada though has lived in SE Asia for nearly 40 years now.

We stayed here for three nights on a private tour of Laos. After a glitch in the pick up arrangements at the airport, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and excellence of the hotel grounds and room.

It is located a little out of town, but within walking distance and there are always inexpensive taxis available.

The rooms overlook a central garden and pool area, well designed and well maintained. A good restaurant and bar complex completes the quadrangle. Prices there were a little higher than 'downtown', but acceptable.

We would stay there again, but it is hard to see why we would want to go back to Vientiane - the locals were surprised that we had allocated three nights for it, and so were we.

After initial difficulties booking with the hotel direct, they finally rung us in England to confirm. The rooms are stylish, with all the facilities that you would expect for a 4 star hotel for tourists or business people. Just about near enough to walk, 20 minutes into the centre, passed all the Government buildings in French colonial style.
Breakfasts were good, but dinners were average in a lovely restaurant on the first floor with balcony overlooking the garden and pool area.
We were not disappointed - this is Laos !

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?

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.
