This hotel has probably the most friendliest staff i have ever stayed at, they were always polite and so helpful, they always had a conversation with us at the restaurant, most of them came and said goodbye when we left, a special mention to Khoon who was the afternoon reception boy, he was so kind and helpful and spoke very good English, when we arrived he took us to our room and showed us how to use all the facilities, when we discovered we could only get 3 tv channels, and the Australian Network Channel was not clear, he upgraded us to a deluxe room at no extra cost, the rooms were about 40 sq mts, and so clean, i have read many reviews here about the mosquito problem, but we had none in our room, there were plenty outside and at the restaurant( it was an outdoor one with only a roof), although we did have plenty of ants when we left something sweet out, the pool was fantastic, and there are not many hotels here that have a pool, as it was so hot at this time of the year, it was the main reason we stayed here, big and clean, although it is supposed to close at 7.30 Khoon said we could swim until 10 pm, and we did with no problem, the breakfast was included but was nothing to write home about, only eggs and bread and fruit and some asian dishes NO cereal or bacon, but it was served with a smile, the worst part was the location, it was a bit far from town( about 15 minutes by tuk tuk) they had a free mini van to and from town but only at 8am 12 pm 4 pm and 8pm, so outside these hours you had to find your own way back, a tuk tuk cost us Baht 120( A$4) but you have to bargain with them, they wanted Baht200( A$7), but you have to expect this in Asia,they have free bicycles that you can use if you want to, but all in all i would recommend this hotel to anyone, we stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. the trip from Vientiane to Luang Prabang is a NIGHTMARE, it is only about 330 klm's but takes about 9 to 10 hours, it is very mountainous and very winding road, my partner was so sick she had to use a plastic bag for most of the trip, so on the way back we paid the extra and flew the 30 minute flight, it was so much better than the bus.
