The hotel is a beautiful hardwood building on the riverfront that may be enjoyed from the balconies or the veranda downstairs. Our room had a comfortable bed, a minibar, wi-fi, and a bathtub. The hardwood means the room can be dark, but that was fine for us as we got a really good night's sleep. It's a family owned establishment, really friendly and courteous. The proprietress is a very professional and intelligent woman who speaks great English. She's running the hotel for her parents, who have had to return to Vientiane for medical reasons. As an indication of the hotel's commitment to service, even though breakfast isn't normally included they decided to make it for us anyway every morning because there weren't many guests at the time. There are plenty of dining options within walking distance, from cheap noodles and rice on the waterfront to more upscale eateries.
One note, when we first emailed them we didn't get a response. Their server had been hacked or something though (as of October 2012), so until the issue is sorted out it could be hard to reach them by email.
