The hotel is set in a quiet cul-de-sac. The rooms are basic but clean and for the price good value. It is easy waking distance to the morning market. There are restaurants and there is a coffee shop on the road near the hotel. The staff are friendly and transport to the airport is available, $7 (usd) For breakfast there is a choice not substantial but a good start to the day.
Best hotel in Vientiane”
Our stay was excellent.Room was comfortable,breakfast was very nice, and location was perfect.Hotel was quiet,and cosy.There is not a speck of dust in this hotel, the staff are constantly cleaning,inside and out,the floors and furniture shine.Also, this was the first none airport hotel where we have been provided with free transfer both directions.This hotel is excellent value for money, and highly recommended-not fancy- but simple,secure and welcoming.
Very nice hotel”
Really liked this hotel. The exterior looks so nice and the room is very comfortable. Lot's of windows and the room was very clean. Location is a bit far from everything though, except the banks and embassies.
comfort and convenience”
it was so good. bathroom is clean and feel comfortable. near patuxai, can walk just 5 mins. from here walk to river side only 10 mins. but last night in laos my cover bed and billow had a bad smell. if have a chance, will come back.
Clean hotel and friendly staff”
This is a very clean hotel located in a quiet location. It's a bit tricky to find. From the main road, after Coca Restaurant, turn right into an alley and there's a gate at the end of it, then you'll find Aroon. The hotel is a bit far from the riverside area where most of the restaurants, cafés, and tourists attractions are located. Taking the tuktuk to and fro the hotel is expensive. It costs 20,000 kip per person. The hotel has only 2 floors and it doesn't have a lift. But the staff will definitely bring your luggages to your room. The owners, Alex and his brother, are very friendly and accommodating. They have good Lao breakfast choices. They arranged our sleeper bus tickets going to Luang Prabang for 180,000 kip per person. But when we got to the bus terminal, the ticket to Luang Prabang only costs 150,000 kip per person. Anyway, the hotel to the bus terminal transfer was already included in a supposedly minivan. The minivan fetched us from the hotel and transferred us in a bigger non-air conditioned, huge jeepney-style vehicle, and crammed 14 passengers with huge luggages in it. But we were able to get to the bus station on time though. :) Other than that, everything was fine.
Convenient and pleasant walk to city centre”
We had a good stay at Aroon Resiidence. It was a pleasant ten minute walk to the city centre and tuk tuk were always around, costing $2 to most places. Windows had blackout curtains which were great. Good choice of breakfast, we had fruit, yogurt and toast with decent coffee. Bit of a mix up booking bus to Vang Vieng with them, maybe it was the language but we understood we were going in the hotel minivan but actually ended up on a very big old, uncomfortable bus, paying more than everyone else so maybe book your bus somewhere else? Apart from this we would recommend this hotel.
Good stay for 4 nights. Not expensive. Breakfast has 5 sets same menu everyday. Dinner hard to find a restaurant. Have to walk around 500M to nearest one. The hotel is little bit old style but clean. Overall is pass.
Value for money”
enjoyed our stayed over in aroon. we took the executive b rooms which is huge and clean. the location is quite far from the riverside where all the activities are located. walking is still possible in the cool weather
Spotlessly Clean Hotel with Big Rooms”
This was our first stay at the Aroon Residence as the normal guest House we use in Vientiane was full.If prearranged Alex the manager will do a free Airport pick-up (not mentioned by Agoda but stated on other booking websites). This is handy otherwise it would be very, very difficult to find being set back from Saylom road with only a narrow road leading to it. The published email address seems to have been discontinued. The hotel is spotlessly clean with big rooms and a good breakfast. It is a 10 minute walk to the nearby Morning Market.
cosy compact and friendly”
This hotel is set back from the road and a genuine pleasant surprise. It is close to a number of sites such as the morning market, Pa Tu Xay and several temples. There are several restaurants close by.
This hotel is great for value and they come to the airport to pick you up and sent you to the airport when you depart. tha staff is friendly and the rooms are big and clean. Unfortunately no swimming pool. The breakfast is quite nice but is a fixed menu with a few choices. Coffee is great. Most attractions and restaurants are walking distance but a bit hot in the afternoon. Transportation in Vientaine is not so convenient but the hotel can arrange a pick up.
The Aroon Residence is great as the staff and location is good. First of all, they offer free airport transfers which takes the hassle of haggling with transportation at the airport. The hotel is located fairly centrally and most places are a few blocks away. The market and gate is just a block away. The hotel is we'll kept and the rooms are clean.
Lovely hotel and service with à smile”
very nice clean rooms. breakfast is from menu, food is ok. not far from the centre like 10 min walk. central location to visite the main attractions. we had à nice stay, big bed and nice bathroom. they have good restaurants near the river to eat, very cheap. we visite the budha park to kill the time, after 15 minutes you have seen it, so it is not worth the trip, only if you have à free extra day.
Nice hotel, service was great, location good”
we were waiting for our visa stayed for 4 days. first 2 days room was great then we were transferred to another room on 1st floor which was exactly the same but no hot water... if we weren't transferred everything would have been perfect. we didn't complain.
Shiny clean, nice room, free upgrade, will be Back”
Without requesting, I was upgraded to a room with a separate seating area with desk that was very comfortable and meticulously clean. Same for the bathroom, with steady hot water. Super value for the I paid.
Clean and well-run hotel outside main district”
i stayed a single night here en route down from the far northern mountains; found a well-cared for hotel, quiet residential neighborhood 20' walk from mekhong river main district, stable and reliable free wifi in room. i will return here, surely.
Great hotel at a reasonable price”
I stayed there for 4 nights and used 3 types of rooms. Both Executive A and B are quite good with large and comfortable rooms. Standard room is a bit old. All are clean. Menus for breakfast are simple in compare with other hotels at the same level.
quiet hotel at a good price”
The aroon hotel is a good place to stay. The room was simple but had comfortable bed, aircon and ensuite bathroom. It was good value since it included breakfast, airport pickup and wifi/cable internet. Everyone was friendly and helpful there. The hotel was close enough to walk to the centre in about 15 minutes. This may not suit everyone but for me it was good to have a quiet location and I enjoyed the walk. Later I came back in a tuc tuc and I am sure I was overcharged but still cheap by international standards.
