      (++) 1. Good place, exactly in the central city, easy access to restaurants, shops, famous places on foot. 2. Kind and friendly staff 3. Very clean 4. Have breakfast 5. Not very expensive 6. Can buy bus ticket to travel to the other cities in Laos or to other countries. We don’t need to move to southern or northern bus station which is far from the central city. Buy the ticket in Avalon B&B Apartement (same street, same hotelier) (+/-) 1. Basic breakfast (break, croissant, eggs, jam, butter, 2 kind of fruit, coffee, orange juice, water) but it is much better than many other hotel in Vientiane 2. Need to bring your own soap, shampoo, conditioner => recommended to be a good choice to stay

      We had a lovely stay at Avalon. It is probably the best budget hotel I have stayed in - and there have been many! The location is quiet(apart from the obligatory cockerel and dogs)and yet quite centrally located. We could walk to all the main features of Vientiane from there. There are some fabulous places to eat nearby. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are very clean - and smell clean too. There is a fridge in the room for you to keep food/drinks. A very nice extra feature! The atmosphere there is ideal for a relaxing stay. It was most excellent, and we will be staying there again.

      location, cleanliness, service
      non that come to mind

      The Avalon is located on a short side street very close to the Cultual Centre and a short, very pleasant walk to the river (action) area. The hotel does not have a restaurant but does serve a delightful breakfast (included) on the front deck / entrance of the hotel. There is an abundance of excellent, multi cuisine restaurants a block from the hotel. The roof top deck provides a nice view of the surrounding city snd is a pleasant spot to sit and read your favourite book in the solitude. Top rating for the value fo money here. All in all a good well located and well priced hotel.

      New furniture, nicely decorated bathroom, convenient location

      The Avalon is a great place to stay in Vientiane because it is within easy walking distance of downtown, restaurants, and the river, but it's situated just enough off of the main street to be quiet and peaceful and not directly in the middle of the tourist zone. The fixtures and furnishings in the room are both new and nice, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Oh, and the price is extremely competitive compared to the alternatives. My one and only complaint was that the breakfast wasn't that great, but you should be eating baan mi for breakfast in Vientiane anyway!

      Hotel Avalon is an excellent choice for a short stay in Vientiane due to its location on the edge of city centre and close to the river but in a quiet street. Well managed, modern clean facilities, helpful staff.

      First class for reasonable price.
      None, and they took account of my previous suggestion that they have Ovaltine available at breakfast!

      This is a medium-sized, very pleasant, first class hotel for a reasonable price. Management is excellent...one can always tell by the attitude of staff, positive, welcoming, and concerned. Management also took account of my only 'Con' last stay in August 2009 to provide hot chocolate as a drink alternative for breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel. I would certainly book there again on my next trip to Vientiane.

      A spotlessly clean little hotel with a central but quiet location

      This was my second stay at The Avalon and I really like this charming little hotel. The rooms are a little small but spotlessly clean and quite comfortable with good bathrooms, hot water and AC. The lift is a little small but can fit 2 people with small luggage. The hotel staff are helpful and friendly and will assist with arranging transport around town or to the airport. The WiFi is free and works at an acceptable speed in the rooms and very well in the lobby. Breakfast is served on the front patio and is excellent with eggs cooked to order, fresh baguettes and croisants and fresh fruit. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. It is one of the best vaklue hotels I have stayed in anywhere in Asia.

      This is a good hotel located in the heart of Vientian, close to wide range of good restaurant for selection. Local transport like taxi is easily available just outside the hotel and no worries about over charging. Foot massage and body massage services is also available just round the corner of the hotel, very covenient. Airport transfer is only 54,000 Kips which is USD6.5 per taxi.

      Nice little hotel”

      Staff very pleasnt and helpful.Rooms were tastefuly decorated. Clean.
      Location hard to find.

      A little hidden gem, had a bit of a problem finding it though. Even the taxi driver didn't know it. The rooms are small but very homely. Breakfast(buffet) was good, however a bit on the small side for people with big appetites.Around about ten mins. walk to the river. There was a bit of a noisy bar, not connected to the hotel that was a little noisy, having said that, it was Laos new year. Would go back again though, this was my 10th. trip to Vientiane, and i would say it was probably the best little hotel i've stayed in.

      Good place”

      room, location

      I had a nice stay at Avalon. The staff were very friendly and helped to arrange onwards bus tickets for me on short notice. The hotel is fairly new with good rooms and bathrooms. The included breakfast is a good way to start the day. There is some construction nearby, so you may have some early noise, but it's not a big deal.

      Nice middle-class hotel”

      Clean room, good value

      I stayed three nights in the Avalon Hotel and was satisfied. The room had a good size for one or two persons and was clean, the bed was comfortable. The location is o.k., to the riverside you have walk maybe 10 - 15 minutes, the best option is to rent a bicycle. It is not possible to rent one in the hotel but you can do so in many places next to the riverside (10.000 Kip/day, passport is required). The breakfast in the hotel was basic and nothing special, they don't serve the excellent coffee from Laos, just 3 in 1, and some bread. Just getting a sandwich on the street (for about 10.000 Kip) is a better choice. The staff was o.k., not very friendly, but that's normal for Laos. I think the Avalon Hotel has a good value for the money, I consider booking it for my next time in Vientiane.

      Excellent Location”

      Location, good breakfast, and clean

      the avalon isn't the closest hotel to the mekong river and the action down by the river; however, it is a 5-10 minute walk and it is very easy to get anywhere in the city from the hotel. the room was very clean, and there was adequate wi-fi available for free. it was a little noise from the street, but at night it was quiet. the staff wasn't the friendlist but not rude either. would definately stay in the hotel again!
