    Lovely staff, nice clean room and good location . Beds are rock hard, so if you are used to sleeping in a comfortable soft bed this is probably not the hotel for you. Otherwise everything else was perfect!

    Great views and kind people ”
    Upon arriving after the long trip from Vang Vieng, we were surprised to meet Mr. Souk, who offered us a shuttle service to the hotel. He was so kind, spoke great English, and later became our Plain of Jars tour guide... highly recommend booking with him, although a bit pricey, worth every penny! He really helped make our stay in Phonsavan excellent and kept us well-informed. The views from the hotel were excellent. The dinner food was really delicious and reasonably priced. This is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Phonsavan!

    Amazing huge rooms!”
    Spacious rooms, amazing view, lovely staff.
    This was a lovely hotel with enormous rooms (separate sitting room and bedroom, plus large bathroom, immaculately maintained. The food was generally excellent. The hotel provides a free bus service to drop you wherever you want whenever you want and will also collect you, either at a prearranged time or if you call them. Free airport pickup and dropoff. The hotel will arrange tours of the Plain of Jars and other attractions - not the cheapest but probably the best quality of all such tours. Ask for Tey as your guide, if possible. Only a few reservations: service can be a little haphazard at times and WiFi is only available in the reception area - the only hotel we stayed in in Laos where WiFi was not available throughout.

    Above average”
    The hotel in itself was very clean and comfortable. We also had a separate sitting room which was a bonus but the hotel was a long way out of all the activity and it was some way off the main road up a very rough unmade up road with no lighting. The position was very good for views though. Front desk staff were unable to speak very good English which made it difficult to arrange things with them. So yes would recommend for something’s not for others.

    Vansan is about the best hotel (3*) you can get at Poonsavan, the town nearest to the Plain of Jars. Rooms are clean, good wifi and meals (and wine)were reasonably priced.

    Beautiful location to relax but a 30 minute walk to town. However a shuttle bus was provided. The restaurant seemed nice but did not cater for vegetarians. Overall a nice stay and good location for plain of jars, however I would recommend looking outside the hotel for your tour as the tour offered was very expensive. We got ours through Kong keo guesthouse for just 200000 KIP.

    Not much choice in Phonsavan”
    This is currently the best hotel in Phonsavan. However I see quite a few hotels being built, but it will take time to tell whether they will have adequate hotel standard service. Not much amenities here but the rooms are big and they will shuttle you to restaurant row and to the airport.

    Disappointing with Vansana Chain of Hotel”
    After visiting Plain of Jars Site 1, we headed to our hotel, Vansana Plains of Jars Hotel in the late afternoon. The staffs have low morale, nobody seemed keen to work, no reply from the hotel for booking confirmation, breakfast was limited due to low occupany. Supposed to have nice sweeping views of the valley but it is blocked by withered trees. The best views of the valley will be from the breakfast area.

    Nice hotel, but cold in the winter”
    Nice hotel. We booked a deluxe double room close to the reception. This room is in fact a suite with bedroom, bathroom, living room, cloak room and balcony. The staff is friendly and restaurant offers good food, both French and Lao. There is a fire in the living room, but unfortunately no heater and it was 7°C when we stayed at this place. 7 Celsius outside means almost the same inside ... The 350 m road from the main avenue is terrible, one the worst we've seen in Laos.

    Mr Souk the tour guide is the highlight”
    I spent two nights here coming to see the Plain of Jars and other local sights. I was met at the airport by Mr Souk, even though I hadnt asked for a pick up and he took me to the hotel. Mr Souk has excellent english (and in fact teaches local kids English at night in his own house) and although prices are fairly high for tours, his tour in the van is excellent and I would recommend it. The hotel itself is quite large but when I was there was very quiet (off season), they did a good breakfast with nice crusty bread, fruit, eggs and tea. The rooms are large with good aircon. Rooms are a little dated in their style and feel a little spartan but still quite good. For me the bed is far too hard and it would be great if they could offer a few rooms with softer more comfortable beds for softy westerners like me!

    Staff didn't speak much English but try to help as much as possible. Hotel was very empty when I was there - for one night I was the only one. Breakfast was good. Shelves to put toiletries inside the shower should be added. Easy to get to town with the free shuttle services provided.

    location, scerery, quiteness
    Considering other options in Phonsavan, and contrary to other reviewers, we found this hotel more than acceptable. We stayed here for 2 nights after the long drive from Luang Prabang. The rooms in the villas were large with a separate lounge, walk thru wardrobe/storage room (with safe, fridge, and storage) to a large double bedroom. Beds were lovely and firm as are most in SE Asia (wonderful for the back). The bathroom was fine. WiFi worked perfectly. The views from the hotel where very good, sitting on a hill with 360 degree views. We ate in the dining room on the first night and the meals were adequate. Breakfast was fine with eggs, sausage, bread rolls etc. Staff weree helpful. The walk into the main street was on gravel streets and the walk to Bamboozle restaurant was about 15 minutes. Our program had us away from the hotel, so we didn't see much of the town during the day. Visiting the MAG and Quality of Life shops was depressing to say the least as the Laotians are still battling the after effects of the prolong wars with American, Chinese and Russian XMOs still wounding and killing people.

    Was in Xieng Khoung in end Nov, hence the room was quite cold at night. There isnt any electronic heater within the room but I found out when I check out that you can request for a portable heater! The info shld be placed within the room somewhere. Internet is reliable.
