        Great hotel in the heart of Vientiane”

        The location is central, the rooms are clean, the beds soft, the breakfast good, and the staff friendly

        After trying other hotels in the area we were glad to have found the Lao Plaza Hotel which was by far the best hotel we stayed in while in Vientiane. It is a bit more expensive than other hotels in the same district but the value you get for just a few more dollars is worth it. We really appreciated the friendly, English speaking staff. The beds were the most comfortable we stayed on in Vientiane and the free breakfast was the best. The best part is its central location from which you can reach temples and the riverside with just a short walk.

        Location, breakfast buffet, staff

        I stayed at Lao Plaza for two weeks in July 2012. I found the hotel to be well located to downtown Vientiane and the Mekong. Lao Plaza staff were wonderful and a pleasure to deal with. The gym & pool and the breakfast buffet are great. My room was a good size although my colleagues' rooms which were at a corporate rate were smaller. The food and drinks in the bar restaurant are expensive relative to the many cafes etc nearby.

        Nice clean hotel. Nice, well equipped rooms. Good breakfast and dinner buffets.

        The Lao Plaza Hotel is probably the best hotel in Vientiane. The rooms are quite nice and well equipped. The location is OK and the staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is good and the dinner buffet is very good with a broad array of food selections. The shuttle bus to the airport runs at only limited hours (I had to take a 5:15 AM bus in order to wait over an hour at the airport before being admitted to the ticket counter to check in for my 7:30 AM flight).

        A very good hotel in the Laotian capital”

        Good location, spacious rooms, spotlessly clean.

        First impressions of the hotel were very favorable. The lobby was large and impressive, the staff were efficient and friendly and check-in was very quick. Our room was very clean and the decor was nice with attractive Lao style bed furnishings. The decor did, however, verge on the dark side, and with the day being overcast, lights were necessary during the day, but not a problem as far as I am concerned. The bathroom was not terribly large for a hotel of that quality, but certainly adequate and spotlessly clean. Comfortable bath towels and slippers were provided. After returning back to the hotel fairly late our first night we were treated with some suspicion by the hotel staff who erroneoulsy assumed my young looking Thai wife may have been an 'unregistered lady of the night' so I had to provide my room number while staff checked the computer to ascertain there were indeed two of us registered there. The second night I am pleased to say it was pleasant smiles and good nights all round. The breakfast buffet was very good, with plenty of choice of both western and Asian food. It was well laid out and well-stocked and both mornings we practically had the dining room to ourselves. Location was good, being walking distance to the river side area, the National Museum, the Presidential place and Wat Si Saket. There are much cheaper places to stay in Vientiane but all in all we were satisfied with our stay there, and would stay there again if we can get another good deal on the price.

        The Lao Plaza Hotel was specific chosen by my colleagues and I, as we will be meeting up some potential business people here in Vientiane. Overall, the hotel did fulfill our criteria and need. The room is spacious, tidy and clean. Along with a comfortable bed, the room has a working desk . The breakfast is good. Plus, there is ample of areas in the lobby to sit and have business chats. More importantly, there is free shuttle to and from the airport. Nevertheless, this is not a hotel for budget travelers, or those who prefer something different. It is a 5-star business type hotel is the a very rigid and mechanize way.

        5 star service”

        Orientated towards the business traveller they have all the facilities needed to stay in touch with the World.

        Vientiane, although the capital of Laos, retains the feel of a small, provincial town with a colonial French atmosphere. The Lao Plaza is certainly one of the best hotels in Vientiane and tries hard to give facilities which are on a level equal to a leading hotel in other, more Western countries. Friendly service, good English spoken, facilities including Internet in the room - though relatively expensive at $10 per day! Really nothing to fault as a business traveller. All the amenities I needed were available. Will certainly use again.

        No wireless internet, only wired (cable) internet that you must pay for. .

        This was my first stay at Lao Plaza (i have stayed at other hotels in Vientiane over last 2 years). Overall, I think this is the best all-round, when you consider the location, magnificent foyer, and comfortable bed. I did not have dinner, but breakfast was very good, with both Lao and western foods on offer. My room had a good view of the nearby soccer pitch.

        You won't be disappointed at the Lao Plaza Hotel”

        Easy listening evening live music in the lobby--piano, guitar and vocal. The breakfast was one of the best in SE Asia.
        Bed mattresses are too hard for our taste.

        We have lived in Asia for seven years now and have traveled extensively and stayed in many hotels, resorts, and a few guest houses. The Lao Plaza Hotel though not as elaborate as some other five star hotels in other SE Asian countries, did not disappoint us. The breakfast was one of the best we have experienced--lots of variety for East and West but all very tasty. (Try the banana pancakes.) We have yet to find comfortable beds in Asian hotels equal to the Western Standard we are used to, (husband has a tricky back) but they certainly were not the worst for comfort in a five star hotel in SE Asia. Loved lounging in the lobby listening to the "easy listening" singer, piano and guitar.

        This is very famous Hotel in Vientiane and it must be highest level. This is located in the center point of Vientiane down town. The room condition is good and all staffs are kind everywhere in Hotel.
        The cost on hotel fee, restourants et. al. seems to be highest among other hotels.

        If you will visit Vientiane at the first time, I would like to recommend this hotel. The location is quite convenient. It is the center point of Vientiane downtown and it is also near Mekong review. In addition, you can find out many good restaurants around this hotel.

        Centrally located. One of the very few places with a swimming pool. Excellent gym. Good buffet breakfast.
        Internet is very expensive compared to the many guests houses which give it free or cafes just over the road which do likewise.

        The Lao Plaza Hotel is an ideal hotel on arrival in Vientiane for the first couple of days until you get your bearings. During this time you could then decide if you think the hotel is worth the difference in price between many of the excellent mid range hotels. It is located well. Is clean and would rate as a four star standard in most western countries. Overall pretty good value for money and clean and tidy.

        I stay in Vientiane alot, normally at cheaper places. But sometimes i like to stay at the Lao Plaza as they are probably stil the 2nd best hotel in Vientiane. Their gym and pool and Sauna are top rate and mostly thats why i go. Location is perfect. Sercurity if first class and the i didn't eat any of the hotel restaurants, Alot of HiSo Lao types seem to frequent the place. It always has a nice atmosphere.

        The Best Hotel in Vientiane - Laos”

        Elegant Design and cventraly located

        hotel lao plaza is easily the number one hotel in this small country. its design is so elegant the hotel lobby is one of the best and front desk staff are efficient and lovely. the rooms are awesome and breakfast was just great. i would love to stay there over and over again. the only complain is that with all these great things they still lack ome basic service that is on offer in even the smallest and cheapest of hotels and that is free wifi. this hotel does not offer free wifi.

        Solidly Descent Hotel”

        The room, the carpet in the elevator, the lobby

        The rooms were very modern with all the essentials: a comfy bed, a safe, a refrigerator and a clean bathroom. However, they were a bit small, but I don't specifically have an issue with that. I found the breakfast to be adequate, but nothing special. The coffee was just awful, however. In another hotel in Vientiane where we stayed, we got nice, brewed-by-the-cup coffee, here was out of a pot, and it tasted as though it had been brewed hours earlier. I think my favorite thing about this hotel is that each day, they change the carpet in the elevator to read the day of the week. We found it to be funny and sweet. I guess the bottom line is that you can't go wrong with this hotel, but it isn't one I will think about to.
