Fantastic hotel. Recommended.”
We stayed at The Lao Orchid for 2 nights and were very pleased with every aspect of our stay. We had spent a night at another hotel which overall was good, but we felt overpriced for what was provided. We changed to The Lao Orchid (around $10 more) and were very happy that we did so as the quality was much better. The staff are excellent. Professional and helpful. The location is great. Right by the river and night market, but our room (on the fifth floor) was quiet. The only noise we experienced was one morning from a temple but nothing the hotel can do about that and it`s just part of the experience. The room itself was great. Very spacious with the most comfortable bed I`ve had in this region for a long time. Bathroom was clean and good. Internet was intermittent however this seems to be the case at every hotel we have used in Laos, and it was availalbe often enough to not bother us. The buffet breakfast was very good. A good selection of food, clean, and quite tasty. Terrific hotel which we will use again if ever back in Vientiane.
Comfortable stay. Decent breakfast”
Situated on Chan Anou Road, Lao Orchid Hotel is conveniently located near the Vientiane Night Market street. At night, food carts are set up along the streets. The number of grills leads to the air being very smokey. In the hotel corridor which isn't air conditioned, you can smell it. I had a superior room for 2 days. The stay was comfortable. Pillows were plush, and the bed provided sufficient support. I was told that the minibar is free for consumption. There were two Scwepps, one minute maid and one 100plus. The balcony provided a good view of the street below and the night market. There was cable TV which included AXN and Fox movies, perfect for watching during the hot afternoons. Every day, you get 1 1.5L bottle and 2 600ml bottles of water. There is a small safe inside the closet. The toilet was a simple affair. Toothbrush and toothpaste, shower gel and shampoo were provided. Face, hand and bath towels were provided too. The water pressure for the shower was a little weak.
A very, very pleasant stay in Vientiane”
You can feel the warm, welcoming Lao vibe the instant you step into the room as the floor and quite a lot of furniture are made of wood. We had a free upgrade to a deluxe suite on the top floor. The room was very spacious (like apartment size) and very nicely equipped. There were also a spacious kitchen and a huge balcony (enough to hold a party) overviewing the entire Vientiane part of Mekhong River. The bed was very comfortable and the powerful air-cons can cool down the entire apartment in just a few minutes. The staffs were friendly and everyday we were given 4 bottles of water. We were well hydrated during our city tour and excursions. The breakfast buffets were good too even though most of the selections are Asian. Surely you can find other boutique hotels that have more exquisite decorations and facilities, but the prices are also much higher. Having stayed in numerous hotels across Vientiane, I would say Lao Orchid is one of a few that has the loudest bang in buck!!
My top choice every time in Vientiane”
Lao Orchid is as good as its name. The Orchid symbolize beautiful and strong flower. I have been to VTE a few times for a business trip and Lao Orchid always been my top choice. The location, the staffs and the feeling of the hotel itself brought unforgettable experience. I recommended Lao Orchid to all my friend that visiting Vientiane. Thank you.
This was my second stay at the Lao Orchid Hotel in as many months and I will happily stay there again. It's great value for money in the heart of the CBD but far away from any night life to ensure peace and quiet. Clean, good beds, great pillows, and decent towels. Sometimes the wifi would be off with little to no explanation but you get that in SE Asian hotels. My only suggestion is more training for the front desk personnel. Always friendly but need to be trained to communicate better when presented with a question they don't know the answer to (question was why the internet wasn't working). Culture aside, I would much rather be told "I don't know but I will find out the answer" than made to sit through 5-10 minutes of trying to look busy before I have to leave the desk out of frustration. The joys of travel, will happily stay here again and will recommend to others.
Very good hotel, with excellent service”
I enjoyed my stay at the Lao Orchid ! The location is perfect, just near the riverfront, the rooms are spotless, and the service is great. I had a problem with the safe in my room and they immediately came to solve the issue ! Breakfast is a generous buffet with eggs cooked to order. Transfers to the airport were efficient and on time. Really good value for money
Two satisfied customers”
I have stayed at and looked at several other hotels in Vientiane and nothing was as nice as Lao Orchid. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend especially with no pool facilities. It is close to everything down town. The breakfast buffet with omelet bar was a nice treat. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything on premise was clean and nice. Staying here helped make our special weekend more special.
Great location, nice hotel, and good staff.”
This place is great value for the money. It is a high-quality room at a reasonable cost in a great location with good views. The staff is more than willing to help you with any of your travel or activity needs. I stayed in the Mekong Hotel when I returned to Vientiane (crap hole), and I wish I had returned to stay at the Lao Orchid.
Lovely Hotel with views of the Mekong”
This hotel was a great location for central Vientiane. The staff were very welcoming and the breakfast area is lovely and open with a variety of choice of food. We had a room with a balcony to the front of the hotel which looked out of a Wat and the Mekong which was nice. The only bad thing that I would have to say about this hotel is that you can hear outside noise as the door and windows to the balcony did let a lot of noise in so if you are a light sleeper, be prepared as dogs bark constantly and traffic can be busy outside the hotel. The rooms are lovely and we are highly likely to visit Laos again as we have a friend who lives in Vientiane and I would definitely be looking at staying here again.
Be careful with the Crockery!”
We stayed at Lao Orchid for 2 nights at the beginning of our Lao trip and rebooked for a single night just before leaving. This is a basic hotel but provides everything for the traveller passing through Vientiane. Two streets away from the main thoroughfare and just across the road from the river and night market. Unfortunately during our first stay we accidently dropped and broke a cup and saucer (plain white, hotel crockery - nothing fancy). On check out we advised of the breakage, expecting to pay a couple of dollars (if anything) so horrified to be charged US$15! A bit over the top, we could have bought a nice dinner set for this... Regardless, I would recommend this Hotel, just don't break anything.
I had been really busy and wanted to celebrate with my wife. I only had a small window so we stayed locally. The Lao Orchid is in the midst of the cities best dinning and shopping. The staff is the friendliest around and most helpful. Some places you feel like you are bothering the staff but at the Lao Orchid they reach out to you. The big comfy rooms were clean and nice. The breakfast buffet was a nice treat. It was a little pricey for our budget but was worth it to celebrate.
Nice hotel, great location, friendly staff”
Enjoyed the stay at Lao Orchid hotel, nice room, view to the Wat next door and the Mekong river, a few steps away from the night market (not THAT interesting a market). Breakfast was very nice too, with both Asian and European options. Hotel offers free parking, which was great for us!
Great Location and Service”
Lao Orchid has a great central location, close to restaurants and shops, and good value for the money. The rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable. The free mini-bar drinks and daily fruit platter were a perk, as were the helpful staff and good internet connection. My colleague and I were able to work with very few internet interruptions, which is a big perk for Laos! The breakfast could use a better selection, but it's adequate. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would definitely recommend to others.
One of Vientiane best”
I cannot say enough nice things about the Lao Orchid. We stay in a very nice and expensive 'boutique' hotel our first time this trip, but I would match the Lso Orchid against any of them. Staff just take care of you. And room was quiet, clean and roomy. I will use this hotel again!
I am partially disabled, and the hotel was extraordinarily helpful and considerate. They sent staff to make purchases of food and medicine for me, and did everything to make my stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. I have been making business trips to Laos since 2010, and the Lao Orchid is by far the best hotel in which I have ever stayed.
Great place to stay in Vientiane”
Great place to stay next to the river and the night market. Balcony is a plus, especially for smokers. Breakfast buffet had a good variety. IN the afternoon staff brought some seasonal fruits. Internet was sometimes slow or off. When Internet was working, Skype was possible. Lao Orchid is not cheap, but worth the money.
We have stayed in many different hotels. The bed in this one was one of the most comfortable we have ever experienced. That is a key ingredient for a great hotel stay. The service was kind and prompt. We were provided daily with a delicious fruit platter. The bathroom was a cut above the typical Asian wet bathroom in that there was a sliding door and a partition that did not allow water to spread all over the floor. The room was kept clean, and the morning breakfast was more than adequate. For the price, this hotel is an excellent value, and we plan to stay there the next time we are in Vientiane.
Great Place to star”
Great hotel. Near to many sites including the river and river walk way. The walk way is probably about 10 miles long. Maybe more. There is a night market . Very good breakfast and a pleasant area to enjoy it in. It is a buffet type of breakfast with eggs cooked as ordered and all the coffee you want to drink plus other items that caters to an international crowd. We will stay again if in the area. Please consider tipping the staff at what ever hotel you stay in or restaurant that you eat at.. Often their paychecks must cover the needs of their extended family and pay is not high in Laos. We see it as an opportunity to help others and a way to express our gratitude for their serenity of service.
One of the best nights in Laos”
I couldn't be happier with my stay at Lao Orchid hotel. People were beyond nice and the facilities were very satisfying. The location was amazing.
Great spot, enjoyed the stay”
Lao orchid staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean, plenty of space. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of choices. Really close to the night market. Highly recommend the Tangerine Garden spa on the next street!
