    quiet spot”

    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.

    Clean hotel and friendly staff”

    Clean hotel, friendly staff, and good breakfast

    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”

    Clean, quiet, location

    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.

    Spotlessly Clean Hotel with Big Rooms”

    Good Breakfast plus Airport Pick-Up if Prearranged

    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.

    Location

    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.

    Helpful staff

    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.

    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.
