Reviewed 3 July 2014

I stayed here for about 10 days, the hotel was nice and clean, Wi-Fi was good, bed was nice, shower was large and quite nice, air con worked well.
The hotel has an elevator from the car park that bypasses the reception, on floor 2, so it makes it nice and private.
Breakfast is nice and the laundry was timely / professional.
The best feature of the hotel is the location, close the the river markets and lots of boutique restaurants

Room Tip: Ask for strong Wi-Fi, and off street would be quiter

We arrived here after deciding to abandon a really bad hotel choice in Vientiane.
We would have gone to Ibis, but they were full.
This is about the quality level of an Ibis hotel, but the rooms are bigger.
We had a balcony to the street, and it was the first "whisper" quiet aircon in 3 weeks travel in Asia. - and properly positioned so it didn't blow on us overnight when sleeping.

Nice buffet breakfasts, and when I lost my wallet containing all my cards and i-Phone, the hotel was ready to step in, even bringing in a sister of the manager (I think) who had excellent English, and said all calls to New Zealand for assistance would be no charge.
By great miracle, it was picked up by an honest maid of a visitor, who emailed us at the addresses on our personal cards in the wallet.
When I picked this up on the hotel free computers, the hotel rang the guy for me, then ran me around to their location in a hotel SUV.
They seemed nearly as happy as me, and were astounded I got back everything intact, JUST as I was about to start the card cancelling calls.
Location is good, within the "quad" of ring roads.
Tip: about 3 doors down towards the riverbank are a few local restaurants, with only Lao names and menus.
One of them you can recognise as unique because has half as an air-con room and beside it, open to air seating inside. - very few places around town have air-con, let alone a cheap and really good tasting local one.
We ended up eating dinner there twice.

TulTuk drivers hang out 40 metres away on the corner with the river road.

From this hotel you can walk to almost all the good restaurants and nice shops, so the location is really good. The service was also really good, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was good to (baquette, egg, yoghurt, milk).

Room is clean and relatively big. Beds are huge. Bathrooms are spacious too. Good wifi.
Buffet breakfast has good choice of both Asian and Western food. Location is close to the riverside, night market, and main tourist shopping area. Also within walking distance to the night food market at Boulevard Khounbolum (where you can pack cheap and tasty local food). My only complain is that the room is not well lit. A restaurant next to hotel serves good noodles and rice salad.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of hotel will face the temple and Mekong River, while those at the back faces hom...

This hotel is across the street from a beautiful temple and half a block from the night market and the promenade that borders the Mekong River. Our room was comfortable and air conditioned. The hotel offered free wifi and breakfast was included with the room. It was hot when we were there, so we chose to have room service instead of eating in the restaurant, which is open air and not air conditioned. All in all, a lovely hotel in a great location.

Room Tip: A room on one of the higher floors facing the street will give you a view of the temple and the Meko...

Stayed only one night but it was enough to want to get out of there the sooner the better.
The crew at the front desk did not gave a damn of what we were asking them ( we asked for a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood, they just shook their heads, we asked for a restaurant-even not nice- same result, so we looked for ourselves, there is a restaurant just next door )
Wifi only at the desk level.
Bathroom ( and room ) is spartiate.
We have been travelling for 6 weeks in all kind of hotels and guesthouses, this one is very expensive for what you get.
So try to find better place, it would not be difficult to find one.
