Big rooms - poor management.

by Guy P on 16 Dec 2016 (Friends Traveller)

Situated on the "new" street along the Mekong river, west of the town center. Rooms are (very) big and reasonably clean. Breakfast buffet is on the top floor: sit on the the terrace and enjoy the view over the river. Our group of 9 was splitting up in Vientiane: some left 1 day earlier by air, others left the same day both by air and by bus ... and this was apparently a major issue at reception where they obviously could not handle a straightforward hotel-situation like this. Endless discussi...

Don't believe the knockers

by Alan-Holden on 13 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Many reviewers complain about the staff but I found them very helpful especially as I accidentally left my ATM card in the machine at the airport and they frantically made phone calls and ran me to the airport and back with fuss or charged. The room was comfortable but noise from the bar band next door is extremely loud until they finished at 11pm. Shower wasn't hot enough for my liking. Rooftop bar was great for sunsets and probably eclipses Bor Pen Yang since the market arrived.

Moody Hallways, Strange Room Design, but at Least it has a Great View

by hopper_globe_2010 on 01 Nov 2016 (Family Traveller)

Stayed here for two nights. Pros: It's got a great view of the river and the night market across the street room if you had a suite with a balcony and riverside view, so there's that.

I don't really know how to explain it, but the bed and nightstands and chairs seemed to be randomly dropped into the room without any rhyme or reason. It was just...weird. In order to charge my phone I ...

Pleasant hotel

by Bernau8 on 20 Oct 2016 (Friends Traveller)

Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. The hotel is old. Rooms are locked using keys. No electronic security here. The rooms are fairly large. Old wooden furniture fills the room. The bed is large and comfortable. Slightly on the hard side. Bathroom is well appointed with the usual toiletries and plenty of water for a hot shower. The television is old but carries many channels including BBC world servuce and CNBC. Breakfast buffet is adequate but not lavish. Don't expect muesli o...
