There are nearby local restaurants and Pizza Hut, so should not have to worry about food. Located next to local night club. Checking-in and out are easily done, staff performance is good. Room is clean and in OK condition. Reasonable price and quality.

            The perfect hotel for the Thai consulate”

            Location perfect for the thai consulate, good value nice clean spacious rooms,

            This was my fifth trip to Vientiane and second time Ive stayed at Lao Golden. It would have been my third time, but last trip it was fully booked. This hotel is a great location if you are is Vientiane for the Thai consulate. It's nice to have a hotel nearby for a few reasons. 1. Taxi's / Tuk tuks in Vientiane are relatively expensive compared to Thailand and you have to go through an annoying routine of haggling them down on price every time you want one. So avoiding using taxi's unnecessarily for trips to the consulate will save you a few coins and all the bother. 2. It's also useful to be close by if there's a long queue at the consulate, I had quite a long wait, so walked back to the hotel for an hour and a half and relaxed there with air con, showers, breakfast and TV instead of sitting miserably at the consulate in the heat and monotony. There's also small shops nearby, a few restaurants, including a pizza company all of which serves me fine for the two days I'm there. The rooms are really nice, clean, white and spacious and a decent TV. Generous breakfast is also nice - buffet with plenty of choice. Quite honestly I've seen all of Vientiane on previous trips, I'm not bothered about seeing it again, I don't relish the thought of going there, but this hotel makes this mandatory trip just a little easier / happier. I will definately be booking again.

            Breakfast, Hote room, Friendly staff

            It was better than expected. The hotel is located 10 minutes walk away from the Thai Embassy. Hotel staff are friendly. However, they do not understand English well but can be spoken in Thai. The staff are friendly. The buffet breakfast was simply great for the hotel in this range. I wasn't disappointed with it for a day throughout my stay. However, there is a temple next to it and they beat the drum at 3 in the morning!!

            Great Hotel Near Thai Embassy”

            Price, Staff, Comfort

            It's a great hotel. Really friendly staff and classic room design. The breakfast is pretty great. They do such a good job and regularly change up the dishes to keep it interesting. While there is no pool or fitness room, just down the road is Sengdara. 6 dollars gets you an outdoor pool with jacuzzi tubs, full gym with machines and weights, sauna and a massage. That's hard to beat. Once you get here, ask them what price they'll give you at the desk — sometimes they'll give you a really good discount in person.

            I would say it was a wonderful stay. It is not located centrally you may take tuk tuk 10 min to reach river side. As a business traveller access to offices is very short distance. Try fish and chips..it was really great dish. No fitness room :-(

            However, is just far enough from the city food center areas that you can't really walk. So you decide what's more important. Close to Thai embassy or close to restaurants. The young manager was very attentive and helpful. The buffet breakfast no great. But if you order a la cart, the food is quite alright.

            Best priced quality hotel in the region. ”

            The rooms were great and clean, the staff and management were awesome and work very hard to please. Manager is onsite and extremely helpful in many ways.

            For just a few dollars more than I had spent several nights in the backpacker inns, I found this awesomely nice place just a short distance off the beaten path, yet convenient to all the excitement and more that one would hope for just a short distance away; including but not limited to the riverfront, fine dining, wild nightlife and the rest yet not robbing you of your rest at this location. I actually believe that after traveling many countries this is probably the most "bang for the bucks," I have ever received. Truly a nice place and very convenient if not the most convenient to the Thai Embassy. Cures your visa woes at a greatly discounted first class hotel. Tell them Wade from America sent you! It's truly a great quality and very comfortable.

            Needs some work”

            Staff are friendly and helpful. Door entry card did not work for the week, TV reception a bit poor and wiring needs replacing, some power points either did not work or were just hanging out of the wall. Limited Western food. Despite all this I would stay there again.

            Won’t come back again.”

            I hv already paid but I can’t get the room. Even they gave my money back , but in late night how could I find the another room at the moment. Hotel price was not cheap and always had a problem with air-con. Firstly, I liked this hotel becz their staff and their location. Since then I thought I wouldn’t be back to this hotel.

            Great hotel”

            We stay in this hotel every year during our Thai Visa update. It's located very close to the Thai embassy, only 5 minutes walk. Last time we went with kids and took a family room with two beds. Room was clean and service was great as always. The only problem was Wi-Fi signal very weak in the room on the 5th floor.
