            Convenient for bus station”

            I actually stayed in Avalon Resudence2 which is a new property and only open for 2 weeks. Everything is new. There is a small Swimming pool and children’s play area adjacent to off road parking. I arrived late (22:00) and was able to check in (paying cash but I did not have enough KIp but they would accept Thai baht. I went out to find a local restaurant/bar but on return all gats to the hotel entrance were locked. I had to knock on the window for the night porter to let me in. There was a good choice of 6 breakfast types which was then freshly made. The hotel was a 200m walk to bus station. The staff were friendly and helpful.

            Great hotel”

            Pros. Great hotel not too far from the Thai Visa Embassy. You could walk it in 20 minutes but depending how hot it is! 5 minutes walk from the bus station. We booked the suit which was huge. Beautiful and clean. A few restaurants and bars nearby. Cons. Had a leak coming from kitchen sink in the room and safe wouldn't work properly. Gave up in the end. Breakfast was average but a young lad had an attitude problem. He didn't want to do anything apart from play on his phone and eat. When I asked for another cup of tea he didn't rinse the cup or even throw away what was left. So I got a dirty looking cup of water with a teabag. He didn't like it when I asked him for a new cup of hot water for my teabag! The other staff in there were lovely.

            Yes I would do it again”

            This was my second time staying at the Avalon Residence, my wife and I go each year to Lao to renew my Thai VISA. The Avalon is a short ride by Tuk or you can walk if you are young and fit from the Embassy. The food served at the cafe' or the restaurant next door is not to bad. Last year my wife and I got a standard room with a large private balcony, which I preferred over my choice this year. This year we stayed in a large suite which was nice, TV, sofa, chairs, kitchenette, all those things if you were going to stay for several days with children. Yes I Would recommend the Avalon.

            great hotel ”

            Really comfortable, really clean, hot water (extremely hot) flat screen TV. manager very helpful, very polite. Did help a lot and answered all questions. Real American breakfast of many choices + lunch and dinner foreigners and local food. Wi-Fi works really good. (the person before who made a comment about it that it didn't work. They had a problem with the router, it was changed last week right after his visit. Air conditioning is almost new if you are in the new hotel. (so it doesn't make noise) The older hotel as some French colony /indian style.(they have 2 building) Cross the street from the buses station. 2 minutes walk. I was on the fifth floor so I got a huge terrace with the city view. Aura residence is also the same building. Far from Royal Thai embassy. 30 minutes walk in this heat. Beware of tuk tuk...seriously! While you're here, if you need a message, when you exit the hotel, on your right walk all the way to the traffic lights. Cross the street 10 meters on your right she is the best message hands down from all over Asia. 50,000kip 1 hr... I took 2 hrs. If you need to do laundry, I had difficulty to find a place. At the same traffic lights walking from the hotel turn right and walk all the way down pass the temple. On you right, you should see a wood panel fence.. I didn't see any sign but just say Sawadee and she will come to you. Clothing smell really good and she press. 2000kip per pieces. Been here 2 days and so far I didn't see anything to do. I walked around lot, even in the heat but didn't see anything much interesting. For sure I'll come back to stay in this hotel for visa purpose.. Hope all this help you.

            Proximity to Thai Consulate General”

            Avalon residence is perfectly situated within easy walking distance to the Royal Thai Consulate General in Savannakhet. I requested a large bed (firm but comfortable) and a high floor (I got a room on the 5th-top floor), both of which were accommodated. Check in is listed as 2pm but our room was ready by 12pm which was great as we arrived early. The elevator is a bonus and the staff are very friendly & go out of their way to try & make your stay as enjoyable as possible 10/10 for customer service from the staff with a special mention for Laa who is very laid back & has an excellent command of English. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, however, we were able to use the urn in the lobby area to make a hot cuppa in the morning & coffee mugs were provided. Air-con chillingly cold if you suffer from the heat (I eventually settled on a setting of 24 & used it in conjunction with the pedestal fan in the room). The water pressure was fantastic & hot water was plentiful. Shampoo & soap provided. The room had a large balcony, great for a drink in the evening & convenient for smokers. Cleanliness was 10/10 throughout the hotel & is a short walk to a market which has a variety of Thai/Laos/Isaan dishes & a few foreign options. The only drawback was that the flat screen TV reception was very poor, but, my wife & I weren't there to watch TV so had no impact on us. WiFi Internet access was good in the room (it appears as though each floor has its own dedicated router) & streaming was intermittent which I think was more due to climatic conditions (Thunderstorms & rain several times a day). If you're wanting to visit the old city where you'll find more bars & restaurants catering to western tastes, it's approx. 2km away & a short trip by tuk tuk. I highly recommend this hotel if visiting the Thai consulate & will definitely return on my next visit to renew my visa for Thailand.

            VISA RUN”

            Actually Laos is the great country for visa run especially Savannakhet City it's lesser hassle than Vientiane. So if anyone would love to do their visa run in this simple city (Savannakhet) I recommend you to pick this hotel "Avalon Residence" just close to the Thai Consulate, you can either walk if you are that sporty but if just arrived from the trip which is really exhausted. You can just take tuk-tuk outside the consulate, doesn't cost you that much but still be aware of scam and over pricing. The hotel's staffs are very helpful and could understand English as they speak as well.

            If you arrive by bus, just come out of the bus station and you will see Malay Gold Shop. Keep that at your right side and the hotel is only about 80 metres. Very convenient for the Thai Consulate - less than a kilometre. DO stop halfway there and buy a filled baguette (6000 kip) from the lady who has a street stall. Mmmm! Hotel TV had only 6 channels and 3 of those were not watchable.

            The hotel is nearby the Thai Embassy, but a little outside the center of Savannakhet. The hotel has a small coffee bar / restaurant, which is convenient, because in the nearby area are not many other restaurants. And this bar is at least counting a fair rate if you pay in Thai baht, in contrast to most of the other shops and restaurants in Savannakhet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was hoping to rent a bicycle for a day, but unfortunately the bicycles have to be returned before 4pm, but still I'll definitely go back to this hotel next time.
