Nice hotel, especially for couples
Design, room size, cleanliness, hotel staff
We had a great time at this hotel.
It seems to be completly new, and the design is just remarkable, very modern/stylish.
Room has big tv, big bathroom and shower big enough for two.
The shower can be seen from the all part of the room if you open the paper curtain...some couples might find it quite a nice feature :-)
Hotel is calm, staff is friendly and quite helpful.Had a problem with WIFI but it has been fixed quite fast by a staff that has a good knowledge of the system. They speak also a good english.
Location is nice, in calm street next to Lane Xang avenue, with two minimarts very close and many restaurant.
Mekong is a 10 mn walk away.
Be careful when telling the tuktuk where you go, because there is another hotel called Lane Xang..this one is Lane Xang Princess, so insist on the "princess".

Pleasant Stay....no frills or bonuses
Quiet rooms, relaxing lobby
on a 3 day visit to vientiane and although not my usual first choice (they were sold out), found this property on agoda at a reasonable rate.
lobby is pleasant, open with a sort of gift shop, hand bag accessory, jewellery boutique shop kind of feel to it.
night person was very nice, young guy, very little english which was okay. got us a room on fourth away from the elevator.
quiet room, no windows, simple decorations, medium sized room, good t.v. with enough channels to entertain us.
breakfst was included and good on both days. first day was menu options, with plenty of choices, traditional western style breakfast, rice soup, gaprao with fried egg, fruit plate, coffee, tea, bottled water and juices were also served.
second day was buffet style and although okay with nice mixture i preferred the menu options myself. portion sizes were normal, which some people in the morning complained were too small. by north american standards, yes, the portions would be considered small. however for the normal person there was more than enough.
a couple of minor issues for me:
car parking - street parking - have a night watch person but every time we came back they were asleep. 10pm or 2am did not matter. neighborhood seems okay but with it located in a darker street right across from the morning market there were a few rough looking characters about.
hot water - very little hot water in the shower. always ran cold after about 2 minutes. not a big issue as most of the time i use cold water but for some people could be a problem
bottled water - charged for 1 bottle water in room. although it does not state it is free of there is a charge i assumed it was complimentary but was again proven wrong.
good location, quiet rooms, if you get it on a sale rate, no problem. i would not pay rack rate or stay during high season without a discount.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Ask for the deluxe (same as other hotels standard classification) room they have no windows but offer a quiet space if you are looking to have a good nights sleep.

Decent sized rooms, but a little overpriced
Clean and tidy, helpful staff
The first day the hot water wasnt working so had to take a cold shower after a long flight which wasnt so great. But the guy reception fixed it for us as promised and the stay was fine from there onwards. The rooms are clean and tidy but I feel a little overpriced, and no windows! The hotel itself is a little away from the main area around the Mekong river.

Quiet,good breakfast,great Air-Con
Hotel is a 10 min walk away from main front,right near the Indoor Market,a bit more pricey than others but rooms were very big & spacious but our one didnt have a window.
Next to Indoor Market

No restaurant open near the hotel after 9 PM. Plan your arrival accordingly.
hotel is around the corner from bus station (bus to Udon in Thailand only takes 3 hrs and is probably easiest / cheapest way to get to Vientiane from anywhere in Thailand other than BKK).
Had to change room 3 times when checking in - first room was never cleaned after previous guest, 2nd room has a non-working safe.
most rooms do not have windows

Nice, clean, spacious rooms. Random hotel
Clean room and nice bathroom
the hotel is located at the edge of the city center making going to and from the hotel a bit of a walk (20 mins to get to the centre by foot). it is however, very close to the morning market.
the hotel looks a bit random (all kinds of colours, pictures of laces all over the world, not a real laos-atmposphere).
the rooms (we had a suite) a nice, clean and very spacious. the quality of the bathroom was one of the best we've seen in laos.

Lovely staff, Yummy Food and Beautiful Room
Great location, Free breakfast, Friendly staff and 5 star service
we were greeted by lovely receptionist, her name is ngoc. she gave us the keys within 2 mins followed by a friendly smile. the room is nicely decorated, the a/c is very strong, and they give free 2 bottled water everyday.
they have a few choices for breakfast and we chose asian breakfast that consisted of chicken rice, oj, water, coffee, fruits and lovely condiments.we love the breakfast wholeheartedly!!
ngoc and her manager always made us feel very welcome and taken care of. they arranged our 4am airport transfer for us$10. the price is slightly higher because no other driver was available to drive before 6am.
we are very happy of the hotel and all the staff. this hotel is also located across talat sao mall/market and very close to main temples.
many thanks to lane xang princess staff and manager.
