Inter City Boutique Hotel
Ranked #60 of 97 Hotels in Vientiane
Reviewed 17 July 2017

Past its prime -- and they'll be no bringing this one back. Too far gone, although they keep patching it up to state of functionality. We stayed previously in 2011, but since then so many new places have opened. Anyway, about the Inter City: only reason to be here is if you get a riverview room on higher floors. The view is good and overlooks the night market. Noise wasn't an issue (and we are about as noise conscious as it gets). Is there any other place half decent with river view like this? We didn't see anything. Try it for a night and get a glimpse into old Vientiane. Meanwhile, you can inspect the environs to choose something you really like.

Room Tip: river view only

I've requested an airport pickup that I never had because of really stupid reason, they didn't want "to take the risk that I could miss my flight and the driver would wait for nothing", really upsetting. Then it was complicated for them to get me a TukTuk in front of the hotel to pick me up when it was raining hard in Vientiane...
Breakfast is not really good.
Internet is horribly slow, hopefully I could connect to the coffee shop below, they had a better wifi...
Probably nice for a night but would not recommend it for more...
On a good side, location is great, room was clean.

Sweet location, though it can be a nit noisy if your room is near the street front. The breakfast was great, I loved it. It's easy to reach there from the airport and it's easy to go around anywhere from the location. You can also loitering around the area, as there are many shops nearby, very convenient, plus it's next to a temple, so you will never miss your morning pray!

Room Tip: choose room at the back all at the top, and the noise level would be fine.

Had the misfortune to book this shabby filthy squalid little place. Check in was OK (that's it for the good stuff) the room was a disgrace. Paint bubbling and peeling from the walls. Air con so weak it would take months to cool the room. We had booked a river view room. The river is a cross the noisy main road out front and more of a glimps than a view. Bathroom was appalling grout black with mould. Literally left the room in 15 minutes to find a bar to get over the horror. On the walk came across the best western (See that review) and decided to cut our losses and move hotels. When we informed the staff we would not be staying because of the room they seemed to take it on the chin, we are not the first to walk away apparently. Final warning I would not let my dog stay here. Plenty of other options available in close proximity.

Stayed: June 2017
