    Great location near the middle of the city center and the river area. These rooms are nice, but would be lovely with some updating. The lobby is very nice, as is the pool area. The pool was not lovely though, as it seemed to have been some time since the pool was properly cleaned. Breakfast was nice. Decent location, decent value. Again, with some updating and a bit more attention to detail, this could be a prime spot to stay in Vientiane.

Only slight safety concerns with the height of railings on balcony and corridors. Also the pool badly needs the water changed, I dared not swim in the dirty pool.

    Really get hotel, location OK.I stayed in five different hotels on this trip this hotel was in the top two. The rooms are comfortable, staff amazing. The Internet is not so good in the rooms. The location is not awesome, but it’s OK. If you’re going to the night market for something like that be prepared for a bit of a hike. However, the hotel itself is very nice and I recommend it.

    Needs TLC. 🤕If you could wind the clock back when this hotel was at its prime it would of been a great hotel. It’s just so tried but it wouldn’t take much to put it back to its prime. Staff were very friendly , if you take time to get to know them. If wanted to use the ground floor pool,you will be disappointed as my wife was. It’s getting a revamp may be things are looking up.

    Dated property that needs upliftment. The lady receptionist was helpful. She gave us an early checkin. Nice pool to chill but hotel needs a restaurant, as places to eat are 15 minutes walk away. So for lunch we had to step out in scorching heat.

    No water in the shower or sink in the mornings. No telephone in the rooms so you have to go back and forth tot he front desk. Desk staff does not provide correct information needed for a tourist. Cable was out for half a day. The driver of the hotel spoke the best English and was able to explain or inform me about where to go and what to do. I was suppose to stay for 4 nights l, end up leaving after 3 nights.

    The hotel is a little off of the main touristy roads, but if you are ok with walking 5 mins then it's no problem. Good parking lot if you drive as well. The pools were nice to cool off in and the breakfast was better than your average hotel breakfast

Great views of Vientiane from all sides, balcony safe large, bike hire available from the hotel is great, and short day trips are easy to organise through this hotel. Definately will stay again

    It's a bit run down, and it's a bit out of the way — but I like it. Massive bath tub is a plus. The breakfast isn't bad at all (someone gave it a bad review, and I don't know why). My room is spacious with a big balcony, hot water, great maid service... The pool is serviceable. If you don't mind being in an older place with noticeable aging, it's got charm and the staff is sweet.

    .First of all let me say that the staff were very helpful and the most friendly in every way. The breakfast (included) was a buffet style with a cook standing by for you to order eggs cooked your style.I booked the Hotel Golden Sun after reading the reviews from other travelers on line and I am glad that I did. The hotel may need a bit of an upgrade by replacing the old carpets in some areas but as I was there they were upgrading many of the old style areas including the carpets' will be staying there again in January or February. I give it four and a half stars.

    Future customers should be advised not to use the tuktuks located in the hotel car park. They attempt to charge outrageous prices well in excess of the local rates. Get a local driver to come to the hotel or ask hotel reception to get you a tuktuk or a full taxi.
