            Great Location”

            The location was great and the staff were friendly. There is a grocery store right across the street, lots of street vendors, and tuk tuks nearby. The hotel is old, but clean. Breakfast had more options than expected, but the food was not hot. The air conditioner in the room was cool, but the water pressure in the shower was terrible!

            Good Location and Friendly Staffs but Below Expectation”

            Pros: Hotel is located near to many attractions and there are food stalls and convenience store nearby. The staffs are generally friendly however has limited command of English. Cons: t This is a very old hotel with only sleeping and showering facilities to me. The WiFi is usually disrupted, TV has no receptions and mosquitos in the room everyday. no buffet but only bread, fruits and coffee served on days when there is no big number of guests. The room and bathroom is not clean and lights are very dim. Generally it was bearable for me but I would definitely choose another better hotel in future visits.

            Disappointing”

            Positive: Friendly and helpful staff and the location is quite good. Breakfast was okay. Negative: Didn't like the room at all. Cold light, a wall of another building just in front of my windows, dirty old carpet. The bed sheets were clean though. The worst was that the room was full of mosquitos when I moved in. The planks around the fish pond in the hotel's patio are so rotten that I was afraid to break through. In conclusion, I wouldn't stay there again.

            location, old fashioned charm, good staff

            The hotel is in a nice part of town. It seemed safe and short walking distance to other attractions. The hotel is old,(some fresh paint and new carpets would help) but it has some character, carved wood panels a bit colonial, i liked it. Rooms were a good size, comfortable and air conditioned, my room had a bath and neat bathroom. A huge courtyard garden with fish pond, breakfast was OK, I had the egg and bacon. The lady at reception was helpful, she had a good map for me and highlighted some places to visit, always a nice smile when i returned through out the day.

            Nice room overlooking courtyard with fish pond. Room had cable TV, fridge, water, a couple of lamps (great for reading), aircon, big windows overlooking courtyard. Bathroom had a bathtub! Shower hose was a little short though and I'm only 150cms tall. Helpful staff that were happy to point me in the right direction. Free computer with internet in the foyer is an added bonus, although the connection was not always reliable. Breakfast pretty good. I would stay here again.

            In it's heydays, this must have been a truly classy and impressive hotel. Alas, it's not the case anymore. Everything looks worn out and old. Stains on the carpet and all over the walls and the bath. Little flies and mosquitoes everywhere... On the other hand, the staff is very professional, the breakfast was simple but good, the garden very beautiful with a nice pond and lots of fishes. It is also well situated, not far from the night market and some very nice temples.

            Location, location, location

            We booked this place last minute for 1 night. We booked a budget place since it was only 1 night but we intentionally didn't book the cheapest and went for something moderate hoping for slightly better quality. We were so disappointed. The bathroom was so terrible we had to laugh. The shower head didn't stay mounted to the wall so we had to take turns holding it for each other, but even still the bathroom was soaked by the end because where there used to be a cheap shower curtain liner there now hangs a shred of moldy plastic. Seriously, it was a scrap. I don't know why it was even left hanging. The bathtub, ceiling, floors and toilet were all moldy and stained. I don't know why you bother folding the toilet paper into a pretty little triangle when you have such a filthy toilet. It was tragically funny. The beds were hard as rocks (and we are NOT picky) and the sheets were stained...or just dirty. I hope stained. The carpet was worn down and moldy. There was a pair of flip flops in there and I couldn't tell if it was meant to be a courtesy or if they were just left behind because although they were nicely lined up next to the door, they were worn down and discolored. The hotel itself is a strange old building which could add character, but instead it's just weird. It was a 4 floor walk-up which was okay for us, but not mentioned at the time of booking. There was a multigenerational family that seemed to live there and they were shouting and arguing all night. I'm pretty sure the door locks were just for decoration. We wished we would've just stayed at a $6 guesthouse. Vientiane is lovely, but avoid this place unless you're entertained by dim, dirty buildings and confrontation.

            The hotel is in a bit of a time warp but don't let this put you off staying here. The L shaped hotel overlooked a koi carp pool which did have some tables near it. There was a verandah outside our room which ran past all the rooms and each room had their own table and chairs on it and overlooked the carp pool. Room was comfortable enough. Nearby Russian restaurant and bar was good.

            The location was good near the city which is central to everything. We arrived early around 10:30am and no one was there in the reception so we have to wait for few minutes even after we rang the bell. The staff has poor command of English and he couldn't find our reservation details. He gave us a room near the reception which was fine after few minutes we realized the room didn't have towels so we ask him to give us one but instead he told us to move to a different room. After 15minutes of waiting he gave found a room for us with towels but without television. We settled in the room even without it as we were already tired and just want to rest. The room was slightly bigger and the toilet was a bit nicer than the last room unfortunately the airconditioner was not fully working. We tried to asking to be move to another room but he couldn't give us any more room as everything else was still not clean.
