Massive big room. Good shower and comfy bed. Very clean. Great breakfast and lovely place to sit and enjoy the sun. Location wise it's quite far from town, we enjoyed the walk though. Really nice place to stay.

amazing staff. rooms are no frills, the rest of the hotel is wonderful. location is a bit out of town, but worth the walk. the spirit house is close by, so that was a bonus!

Above average”
I don't know about the other rooms but my room had a twofold door with glass panes covered by hanging bamboo blinds. One from outside can clearly see inside the room, especially in night time when outside is dark and the light in the room. Felt like no privacy. No TV or fridge. Shared bathroom (maybe becoz I booked the cheapest room they have). It's a bit far form city center. Otherwise, the palace is literally in the the garden and a nice place to relax. Breakfast was also nice.

Appalling location, Decent Property”
After staying in hostel dorms, I decided to treat myself to a nice traditional Laos Villa in Vientiane. What they show in the pictures is true. What they don't show is the appalling access road and the sad, depressing location of this hotel. I reached at night. It was 9 pm. I'm a city girl so 9 pm is okay for me but for Vientiane and for that particular place it was almost like way past midnight. As my taxi turned into this slummy looking lane, I was greeted by two butt naked, pants down locals (possibly drunk) from the seedy looking bar in the corner. Didn't look good. NOPE!! Especially for a girl traveling alone also, pretty scary. So it’s big NO to Villa Lao and all in all, money not well spent :(

Villa Lao was great. Nice spacious rooms, staff was extremely friendly. they helped book buses, Tuk Tuks, and even retrieved some boots I left on one tuk tuk. They went above and beyond. Would recommend staying here!

A hidden home away from home”
Villa Lao isn't easy to find although it is near the city center. However, when enter it. immediately you feel at home. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the atmosphere is warm and cozy and the food they prepare is superb! All of that for a very cheap price. Not only I recommend it to everybody but also I plan to stay there again and bring family and friends. It is worth to discover it.

Quiet place, 2 bus stops from the airport but not really in the center (you'll need to take the bus, which stops running around 11). Staff is OK, they don't talk much and don't understand everything but their nice and there's always someone around. Breakfast is good and complete (til 9:30 though, bit early) When I asked for the airport, there wasn't a included option so I had to take the bus. Not sure if it was a misunderstood, but I've been there twice and never had free shuttle. Anyways, if you don't mind being a bit out of the center, the place is lovely and really quiet.

Nice hotel and nice rooms, though a bit far away from the center”
We only stayed one night in the city since we were leaving the next morning. When we arrived and the taxi took us to the hotel we entered into a dark alley and behind the alley there was the hotel. So first impresion was a bit scary. However the recepcionist was nice, spoke fluent english and the room was nice. Bathroom is outside the room, so it’s a bit awkward to leave the room naked or similar. The resteurant for breakfast was simply okey. All in all a good place if you stay only one night in the city.

More suited to those of a beatnik, backpacker , cheap & cheerful hotel mindset. Good breakfast, and 10 minute walk from river and bars, eateries. 20 minute walk in city itself.

Great place to stay. The entrance from the street is quite misleading but once you are in its very nice. The room was huge for the price, basic but for the price very comfortable. The communal area is very relaxing and peaceful

Quiet heaven in Vientiane!”
Very nice and charming hotel in Vientiane. One kilometer or so of the "main" riverside area, but still only a few minutes tuktuk ride! Renting your own scooter in town might be a wiser choice. A bunch of cute cats roams on the property 😝

Booking Problems But do not tell clients.”
I booked a room with Agoda successfully, and with the confirmation of booking neat as well, when my family traveled to the hotel receptionist told me that, no room for me, the room I booked to other customers already, I'm so disappointed with the service here, when the problem of booking, no notify me in advance of my trip, I told the receptionist that I had to solve the problem, take some time, so the receptionist. Do not stay at more expensive than the original, make me and my family happy. Suggestion 1. Management and reservation is not effective. 2. If a problem should immediately notify the customer immediately, customers should not wait until the last minute to stay, I'm so disappointed with the service here. 3. Very loud air conditioner And sleep disturbance. 4. Rooms are not clean.
