We recently stayed at Charming Lao Hotel. The hotel is comfortable and an excellent value for money. Our room had everything that we needed. The thing that made our stay though was the amazing service and helpfulness of the hotel's general manager. He was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the city. Even prior to our arrival, he went out of...

We didn't expect too much in Oudomxai, and were very pleased with the hotel. Center of the city, staff helpful. The rooms had everything we needed. We had our meal in the garden with a bit of live music. The food was very tasty. The wifi is a bit unreliable but, the news being what they are, it was restful...

The person who gave this a terrible review has never traveled outside of Western Europe, this is a great hotel for this area, the manager is very nice and helps all around the hotel. I enjoyed the free massage and the room was really pleasant. I was here before I went trekking and it was the best hotel we found...

The Charming Lao Hotel in Oudomxay is a blessing for any traveler who is obligated to stay in this dusty and expanding town. The hotel is a beautifully renovated building that espouses the charm of Luang Prabang. The coffee shop is a franchise of the well-known Sinouk coffee chain in Laos. The coffee is very good Lao coffee from the...

Welcome relief to spend an overnight here. Rooms are large, tea/coffee making facilities, spotlessly clean accommodation and bathroom, lovely welcoming staff, and really good dinner. This has possibly the most comfortable bed and lovely linen in the whole area.

Our tour agency booked us into Charming Lao for 2 nights because the Muang La resort was full. We had low expectations for hotels in Udomxai (say, where??) but were pleasantly surprised - it's a perfectly decent 3-star hotel with nice, well-equipped rooms, an open-air courtyard cafe and pretty good food. And the staff were charming Lao! Our spacious twin...

1 h Massage per day included in the Hotel price. Since I never intended to use that service I actually paid about USD 10 per day too much without knowing it. Overall Staff performance is very weak, they are absolutely not trained and helpless to serve customers. Only the manager speaks a bit English ! Breakfast on the 1st day:...

Used to stay in Oudomxay for business, I was this time on vaccation travelling with my Mum. We've stoped to this new hotel in Oudomxay and it was a great surprise to be welcomed by an attentive staff. Rooms built under occidental standart are brand new, spacious, clean and convivial. Service worth a 3 stars hotel. Massage and spa room...

“All rooms face the courtyard. Music is played from 1900-2100 hours each evening. There is no lift / elevator in this three floor hotel.”

“As there is no elevator, the 2nd floor is the better option.”
