My friends recommened to stay here when i came to Vientiane Laos. And it was not dissapointed me. Thanks, because i had travelled in many places, so that's nice place to stop and take some rest before continuing the next.
The hotel is nice, the room is very clean and the most important is the service.we were helped by pro staff and friendly.
I will tell to my friends that's great choice.

The five-storey building is located hundred meters from the very trendy meeting point on Mekong riverside. This specific spot is, in fact, ugly and dirty but many people occupy this magic place, because of exceptional climate, low prices for beer and food and nice sunset over the Mekong river.
Our room was nice with beautiful wooden floor and comfortable bed. The only problem was to set up the air con, blowing exactly on the bed. In the room also: safe box, free internet access, complimentary water. The bathroom however was rather basic, but clean and roomy.
The breakfast, quite common, but served on the shadowed terrace, with the view on the street and river. And finally very attractive price - 45 $ for double room, including breakfast.

I regularly travel to Vientiane for my job. Since a few years, I always stay at the Lao Orchid. If I can get a room, that is. The place is always fully booked, so be warned. Book ahead well in time. The rooms are meticulously clean, the bath room is big, with a wonderful huge shower cabin, the staff is very friendly, addresses you by your name, and the breakfast patio, in the open air, is kissed by the morning sun. The bed is very comfortable, the place is well isolated and well maintained, the TV has 49 channels including HBO, Star Movies, CNN, BBC. TV5 etc, there are free computers in the lobby etc etc. One additional advantage, to me at least, is that all the rooms are similar, so you know exactly what you'll get. If I cannot get into the Lao Orchid, I usually stay at the Day Inn, but they have a wide array of rooms, some excellent, rivaling the Lao Orchid, but some others are pretty horrible. If I know I need to stay there, I try to get my preferred room (I'm not going to tell you which one that is) but if I just show up on the spur of the moment, I may have to make do with whatever they have, which can be OK, or not. Never such a problem at the Lao Orchid.

Small hotel 1 square from the Mekong River near the strip of beer gardens that line the river bank. Good breakfast on the front patio. OK rooms w/some view of the river and the Wat across the street. Busy street w/ some traffic noise. Good shower. Adaquate TV channel selection. Helpful staff. Parking under the hotel.

Stayed here for 6 nights on 3 different occasions on our 3 week trip to Laos. The hotel is the cleanest place I have ever stayed and has a great location, right by the river and close to lots of places to eat. The staff is helpful. The free breakfast has eggs, fruit, noodles, rice, toast cold cuts and cheese and cereal and is very good. The regular rooms are $45.00 a night, but spring for the 5th floor suites for $65.00, the room was huge and well worth it. The king size bed was so comfortable and the A/C units in the living room and bedroom were ice cold. And that is very important in Laos! If you travel to Vientiane stay here.

We stayed here both on our inbound trip and outbound trip to Luang Prabang.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable with good facilities. There is free high speed internet at the reception area.

The staff were very friendly. The hotel is in a great location - near the river and close to restaurants and shops. It's about a 5 min tuk tuk drive to the market.

It's also only about 10 minutes to the airport and the staff arranged free pick up and drop off for us.

Would definitely stay here again and have no problem recommending it to others who are looking for a good standard of accommodation that won't break the budget.
