I read a lot of nice review of this hotel so it was quite a disappointing experience. The rooftop view is very nice, and I can add the size of the room is quite big, but otherwise: - The AC is really really noisy. - The bathroom is very basic for this kind of hotel and has a smell. No...

Booked on advice of a friend living in Vientiane. Overall average room setup. Wifi did not work so the hotel to their credit provided me with another room that did have wifi. Hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the city's river main foreshore and night market.

Functional, and a great place for a view of Vientiane and the river "One of the top 10 best views in the world" Really...?, certainly not in April during the rice field burning and pollution. Professional enough, and a handy place to be close to town, and out of it. Fairly souless except for the restaurant/ bar on the top...

The view is awesome. It's very close to the city. I got a good view to see Mekong river. It was nice to walk along the river in the morning and the evening too. I didn't spend much time in the room though I just went there and sleep. Also, the Restaurant on the rooftop was beautiful. The food there...

The room has no hot shower despite special request upon checking in and no immediate attention given after complaint. Staffs generally do not understand English well half of the time. Bewares of high charges if you happen to ask for the hotel staffs to arrange local tours for you, can be as high as double outside price. Despite the these,...

Room we had was large and all the facilities you need, no view – but I didn’t go to sit in the room. There is a rooftop bar and restaurant with stunning views of the Mekong and across to Thailand. The buffet breakfast was excellent and loads to choose from; just sit outside and absorb the view as you eat...

After landing in Vientiane we got a tuk-tuk to take us to the hotel for about $5. Beware because the drivers there try to tell you your hotel is booked and your room is unavailable and try to make you go to their friends' hotels. We just had to be straight with the driver and tell him that's where we...
