About Settha Palace


Built in 1932 and restored to its former charm in 1999, the French colonial-styled 43-room hotel is ideally located near the city’s commercial district. The Settha Palace is just a 10-minute drive from the Wattay International Airport and a 25-minute drive to Thadeua on the Laos side of the Mekong River. The rooms feature beautiful Italian marble floors and crafted rosewood furniture, which together offers a comfortable and luxurious environment. A great place of stay, guests can relax by a free-form pool and indulge at the excellent dining venue, La Belle Epoque. Located right in the city center, the 5-star hotel is within walking distance to the commercial district, where guests can enjoy the many markets, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions. Some of the features of this historic landmark include period furniture and landscaped gardens. It is the ideal hotel for travelers who want to experience the rich history of Vientiane.

A friendly and welcoming place to stay.
This was my third stay at Settha Palace. I always return here because of the lovely feel of the hotel and its location. It is a small, boutique hotel with a pool and gardens. The location is centrally located which means a short walk to most things and also far enough away to offer a quiet retreat. The staff are welcoming and helpful and really contribute to the unique feel of Settha Palace.

Just the characteristic that was worth but nothing else. Breakfast was at standard level, not more than that. The staff was cold and was not concern on guests. We had no one greeting at the hotel door when come and no one carry your luggages when go. When we asked for more drinking water in room ( had three times call to the service counter) they asked whether I willing to pay for the water. I think The hotel which this range of price should has a better service.Why should we repeat our stay?

Will not come back!
So very disapointed , I chose this hotel based on reviews over other hotels that i wanted and it was a disaster!!! No porter, nobody to tell you where is parking ( in the back , with locked gates, you have to circle around to get back to the reception entrance) , nobody shows you to your room, no elevator, old creeping floors, old rooms, bathroom with mold in shower curtain and ceiling and tiles.... Air conditioner doesn't do anything even though the room was small... Lunch another deception, ordered tradicional lao food and it was probably cooked by a foreign... It was not edable, paid $50 for Lao food that we didnt eat, the same food outside would be $10 and it would be great! I am not one for complaints. I do my reaserch so I now what I am getting... But went in to this hotel expecting the 4 stars (for Lao standard) and wouldnt give 1star Pass this on!!!!!

Classic comfort
This hotel did not disappoint. It is classically stylish and we liked being welcomed with frangipani necklaces and cold towels on arrival. The rooms are decorated with high quality furnishings. We enjoyed relaxing around the pool and had lunch there too. Dinner at Le Belle Epoque was wonderful. The staff were very attentive. Overall, a great experience and I would stay there again. Travelled with older children and a grandmother. Ideal hotel for this group.
