        Beautiful hotel, lovely and helpful staff”

        Pros: the room was spacious and had colonial charm. Comfortable furnishings and clean. Pool was great, set beside a large garden and grass area. Cons: air conditioning was not very good, and we visiting during the hot season. Massages were not available due to maintenance on the rooms. Overall, was a great place to stay and any cons were easily overlooked by the many pros.

        Calm and classy”

        Had a great stay at Settha Palace to attend a conference in a nearby hotel. Despite being a little further way from the 'centre centre' of Vientiane, it was very well located. I was able to walk to all places of interest without requiring taxis/tuk tuks (Vientiane is small!). Staff were above and beyond friendly and helpful - very professional and always ready to help. I was very impressed. Gym and Pool were a great bonus to relax after a day's work. Thanks for an enjoyable stay at Settha Palace.

        Good stay in centrally located hotel”

        Historical, luxurious, good service

        This is the best hotel in Vientiane, and I would definitely return. It is a historically significant building, and the rooms are quite spacious and feel like you are stepping back in time, even though the modern amenities are there and acceptable. It is not a cheap hotel relative to other options in town, but it is extremely centrally located and has a very nice feel. The dining options are good, with a nice breakfast. Perfect for either a business hotel or weekend couples getaway. You don't feel like you are in a poor country when staying here!!

        A really special place to stay - truly lovely hotel. Great staff - very friendly. Amazing room, beautifully done out in a very elegant style. Lovely colonial type bar area - could have spent hours there! Great food - breakfast and main meals. Lovely pool area. Whilst there are a number of other new, clean, nice-looking hotels in the area, this is a really memorable place to stay.

        Many.
        Lighting in the hotel is a little dark

        For those going to Vientienne, this is THE hotel in the city. Its quite exclusive and small, the rooms are reasonably well appointed, the staff are just amazing and the whole place is quite relaxing. One thing we did find was that the lighting in the hotel tended to be a little too dim and dark. Certainly, I couldn't read in the public areas. The pool is good. Breakfast's are adequate. Nothing to rave about. I was a little disappointed as there is some wonderful food to be had in Vientienne. Certainly, lunches and dinners were very good. The staff are wonderful.

        Living on borrowed time”

        The Sethha Palace is living on its reputation as a grand dame in Vientiane. It is a period property in nice grounds, but the rooms are showing their age. If you value a garden and pool area to sit in, as we did, then it is worth considering. Otherwise I would suggest trying some of the newer arrivals in town. Restaurant was expensive and disappointing.

        A friendly and welcoming place to stay. ”

        This was my third stay at Settha Palace. I always return here because of the lovely feel of the hotel and its location. It is a small, boutique hotel with a pool and gardens. The location is centrally located which means a short walk to most things and also far enough away to offer a quiet retreat. The staff are welcoming and helpful and really contribute to the unique feel of Settha Palace.

        Will not come back!”

        So very disapointed , I chose this hotel based on reviews over other hotels that i wanted and it was a disaster!!! No porter, nobody to tell you where is parking ( in the back , with locked gates, you have to circle around to get back to the reception entrance) , nobody shows you to your room, no elevator, old creeping floors, old rooms, bathroom with mold in shower curtain and ceiling and tiles.... Air conditioner doesn't do anything even though the room was small... Lunch another deception, ordered tradicional lao food and it was probably cooked by a foreign... It was not edable, paid $50 for Lao food that we didnt eat, the same food outside would be $10 and it would be great! I am not one for complaints. I do my reaserch so I now what I am getting... But went in to this hotel expecting the 4 stars (for Lao standard) and wouldnt give 1star Pass this on!!!!!

        This hotel did not disappoint. It is classically stylish and we liked being welcomed with frangipani necklaces and cold towels on arrival. The rooms are decorated with high quality furnishings. We enjoyed relaxing around the pool and had lunch there too. Dinner at Le Belle Epoque was wonderful. The staff were very attentive. Overall, a great experience and I would stay there again. Travelled with older children and a grandmother. Ideal hotel for this group.

The rooms have all the necessities, nice, cleanly facilities, comfortable beds, colonial decor, and what seemed to be 14 foot ceilings. The staff is very helpful and attentive.

        The stay was lovely. We actually live in Vientiane and came to Settha Palace as an anniversary getaway. The staff found out it was our anniversary and sent a bottle of champagne to the room. A very nice touch. The poolside area is spectacular - quiet, relaxing, lots of shade, nice food. It was lovely.

        Outstanding service provided promptly and with great enthusiasm. This wonderful heritage building has been restored to its former glory and is proudly cared for and maintained to the highest standards

        Couldn't recommend Settha Palace highly enough. For anybody wanting to add a bit of luxury to their stay in Vientiane - this is the place to be. Centrally located to many of (walking distance) the major monuments and Wats. Staff take pride in their customer service and it is a great help if you need advice or something arranged. If you are lucky enough to stay there - enjoy.

        VIENTIANE'S MOST FRIENDLY HOTEL”

        Staff, food and friendliness.

        Fantastic hotel. Three days after I left the Settha Palace to go elsewhere in Laos, I contacted them to ask if I could come back for lunch and a swim because I was due to spend 4 hours lie-over in Vientiane Airport. They not bnly readily obliged, but sent their famous London Taxi, which is a signature vehicle of the hotel, to collect me and take me back again after lunch and swim. Great service. Great hotel. Lovely staff.

        A grand old dame who is showing her age...”

        .but great location and wonderful staff who is eager to please.

        We only stayed one night. There were 3 of us: my sister, my daughter and myself. We took only one room for the night so we had an extra bed. This arrangement would not have been tenable for any longer than 1 night because the room was on the small side and we barely had room for the 3 of us and our luggage (1 large piece + 1 carry-on each). The room had only a shower stall and smelled on the musky-damp side. But it was clean and the hotel has the elegance of a by-gone era. The hotel is well located and within easy walking distance of shopping. We ate in the hotel restaurant which advertised a special Valentine's Day Dinner for $50.00. By the time we got there (9:30 pm), one of the two advertised appetizers was no longer available. The rest of our meal was less than satisfactory and over-priced. I would recommend that one eat elsewhere. I cannot comment on the breakfast because we left at 5:00 am the next morning. However, the front desk was kind enough to fix box breakfasts for us containing fruit and rolls. The hotel grounds are lovely and the staff was well trained and eager to please.
