            Our best hotel in Vientiane. Highly recommended.”

            Recently we come to stay here once or twice every year. The price is very reasonable with considering its level of service and facilities. Front & lobby staff and room service persons are very competent. Unfortunately, an attitude of some staff at its cocktail lounge would be inappropriate for a state-flagship hotel of Laos. Sitting down and fingering mobile phone while they are in duty -- just like an attitude of a street stall's clerk.

            They provided warm-hearted & detailed service, so, I can say "a best & recommended hotel in the area". In addition, as seen on the photos on Agoda site, hotel facility & hardware could be said "OK". You are kindly informed the following things: (1) No conditioner, razor, or tooth-cleaning kits would be provided. (2) Free Wi-fi is available only in a certain area (2F pool & fitness counter). We are much satisfied with our stay in Lao Plaza Hotel.

            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.

            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.

            Top Hotel in Great Location”

            Location is great, rooms clean, nice facilities

            This hotel is in an excellent location, only minutes walk to the riverside and popular restaurant area. The facilities were good, nice pool and great food and service. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

            good location by the bank of the river”

            good view ,hotel located at city center

            Great hotel, probably not the best in Vientiane, but I really liked it.Near the river (short walk) and loads of bars and eateries.Not the most happening place in Asia, but excellent for a quiet relaxing holiday or business.

            5 stars in Laos”

            location
            getting old

            Considered one of the best hotels by the local. In an excellent location, just a walk to the main cafes and restaurants. Beautiful hotel with clean comfortable rooms and helpful staff. The pool area was fine, but small and water was little cold. Breakfast was standard but nice, only complaint (as mentioned above) was the cooking oil used for the eggs was unpleasant.

            Stylish Hotel in center of city”

            Beutiful hotel, good beds
            A lot of business travellers Swimming pool dosnt hav much shade

            This is a beutiful hotel and we were very happy with our stay. The beds were confortable and the rooms well appointed. The swimming pool area is very nice but as the weather is so hot, the lack of shade mean we couldnt spend much time there. The change room area has saunas and a spa. The hotel location is excellent and it is a short walk to some good restaurants and teh river. I would stay here again.

            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.
