I stayed here only one night and that was enough for me. Location - on the banks of the Mekong you can see Thailand on the opposite side. Nice for morning and evening walks. The staff were friendly enough, the hotel was clean, the room on the top floor was large but very basic, the bed was comfortable enough, the...

The room is okay, basic condition as other hotels in Vientiane with similar price. The roof top restaurant is good. While the wifi doesn't work at all in my room. I have to go to the lobby to use the wifi. Generally it worth the price considering it provides free airport transfer service.

Stayed at this hotel for six nights. We got a room on the top floor which is the same floor as the restaurant but the walls were paper thin. We can hear every cough and every sneeze from our neighbors. Good hot shower but low pressure and the smell from the drain was very bad throughout our stay. Wifi in...

Comfortable hotel on the water. Breakfast was one of best we had on trip with many options and a wonderful view of the Mekong. The rooms are standard and the hot water worked in the shower. The walk to the city is only 15 minutes. There's plenty of good massages close by as well.

Even though it was on the top floor, the a/c did not work very well during the day, but very strong at night. The view from the restaurant is nice, and at sunset. The breakfast was excellent. The guy at the front desk was not too helpful with the a/c issue. The room was huge, the bathroom a cave, but...

This is actually a small 2-star guest-house type Hotel. there are several other Hotels like this closer to the city centre. The room was large but very basic. The bathroom...

I read a lot of nice review of this hotel so it was quite a disappointing experience. The rooftop view is very nice, and I can add the size of the room is quite big, but otherwise: - The AC is really really noisy. - The bathroom is very basic for this kind of hotel and has a smell. No...

Booked on advice of a friend living in Vientiane. Overall average room setup. Wifi did not work so the hotel to their credit provided me with another room that did have wifi. Hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the city's river main foreshore and night market.

Functional, and a great place for a view of Vientiane and the river "One of the top 10 best views in the world" Really...?, certainly not in April during the rice field burning and pollution. Professional enough, and a handy place to be close to town, and out of it. Fairly souless except for the restaurant/ bar on the top...
