Great Dining Options right outside the hotel

Location, View, Service
The hotel is a little off the centre of the night market, but this means we are away from the noise and grime. However, it is still within walking distance of the night market. Right in front of the hotel are numerous seafood restaurants and bars with river view. Will stay here again!

Pretty average

The view, the bed, that´s it
Pretty average hotel. Little too far out of the river road for my liking. Near impossible to control water temperature, either cold or burning hot, but experienced that before in Laos so maybe that is common. Order a starter and a main course in the restaurant, got the main course first, but that's also not unusual in Asia. My recommendation for the restaurant is one of the soups, very big bowls, and delicious.

Good location over looking the Meekong!

Staff, location, location
This is my tenth time at the hotel. Things have not changed much other than that the price had increased. I was informed that there were new a Japanese owner. The hotel is in need of renovation and upgrading given the increase in price.

Could do better

Location,location and location
It was OK but frustrating. The lift never went to the correct floor and the hot water was too hot as the cold mixer did not work. The bath took over an hour to cool down and the shower was too hot to use. The staff seemed ill at ease with foreign visitors and that is why I say it is frustrating as this hotel could do much better. The location on the riverside is excellent and the roof top restaurant offers first class views if only the food was better. The rooms are clean and spacious but only a few have a river view. I would give it another try.

Nice hotel, but have room for improvement

Good services in all areaa (reception, restaurant, house-keeping, van-driver, security, etc)
Enjoyed my 6th returned stay here. This time my only complaint is that the bathroom hot-water shower is very problematic. Very hard to adjust to preferred level, so water is too hot or just cold water. Management should replace the full set of taps urgently.

First time at Seng Tawan

Cleanliness, Staff Performance, Good Location
I came from Pakse via sleeping bus so I got to the hotel 4 hrs earlier than regular check in time. The staff did not only give me an alternative room to the one I originally booked but also gave me a free upgrade. The room (302) was very spacious with a king size bed. The restaurant on the rooftop is a fantastic place to dine. Buffet breakfast in the morning was very good. The Massage place at the basement stays open till 11pm. I will definitely stay here again eventhough price is higher than other hotels beside and it is about 20 minutes far from the night market.
