My first stay at the Lao Heritage Hotel turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Located just 15 minutes away from Vientiane International Airport, the Lao Heritage Hotel is slightly off the beaten path, but still within walking distance to hundreds of restaurants, pubs, shops and the Mekong riverfront. Rent a bicycle and you can get from the guest house...

This Guesthouse is now under new management. The previous owners had allowed this quaint Lao/French villa to run down. The new manager (Cecile) has worked hard to make this a tidy n relaxing place to stay. More work is planned, to renovate rooms and bathrooms. At the moment it represents great value for a central Vientiane Guesthouse. The villa has...

After staying in a couple of other guesthouses in Vientiane, I can definitely say that this is a small gem to be recommended. The new French owner makes all her guests feel most welcome. This traditional Lao wooden house is situated on a quiet street, yet is near to all the restaurants and sights. Would definitely return whenever I'm in...

The Lao Heritage Hotel is back on track. Featuring a top location right in the center of Vientiane it has recently changed hands to a new expat manager who is turning it once again into a memorable place. Come back and be impressed.

I'm surprised from the older previews, I guess the lovely atmosphere of this small hotel is justified cause of the new ownership by Cecile, the French woman that took over recently. Never stayed here before but right now I can say it is excellent value for money, especially compared to other same priced hotels and guesthouses around the area. You...

This place is average. Mostly, we were disappointed after being tempted by the beautiful pictures on their website. It did not live up to these photos. Its not a bad place to stay, but if your are looking to splurge, it is not the place.

My title says it all. The rooms are adequate but the breakfast and WiFi were terrible. The breakfast consisted toast bananas and coffee. That's it, that's all. I was hungry every time I was done eating. You have to pay for the WiFi service and it super crazy slow and often disconnects are doesn't connect at all. Make it fast...
