Stay at the Sala Inpeng for 4 days in November. (too many days for Vientiane, max 3). What can I say that hasnt already been said. Great central location, Fantastic wooden huts with Air con and TVs. But above all the most amazing, friendly, warm and welcoming staff ever. The girls that appear to run the resort are so lovely....

I booked the Sala Inpeng after reading tripadvisor reviews. The location and setting totally exceeded my expectations.... So close to the Mekong promenade and night market, and 5minutes from the restaurants, cafes and bars. The hotel setting itself also surprised me... In among the cityscape, it is itself a little green oasis that would be quite fitting in a countryside...

I stayed here for a total of 4 nights and I must say I was very satisfied. First, the bookings made received prompt replies. Second, the rooms were clean though thy are a bit tiny (I stayed in the economy and standard ones). Location was good as it was by the riverside and was in the heart of the tourism...

In the middle of a Vientiane rapidly morphing into China, here is the old Laos we knew and loved. A cool, shady garden shelters a collection of wooden houses, each with a balcony where your breakfast croissant and cafe are served. The rooms are simple, nicely appointed, with big clean white beds, mozzie nets, TV, AC, and showers that mostly...

Definitely recommend this place - very helpful staff with a good location, great rooms with balcony and green areas. Right by the river. Can't accept cards as payment so need US dollars or kip. Air con, fan and mosqito nets in our room.

I had seen this place on several visits to Vientiane and decided last time to go for it. The set up is very attractive with 9 or so individual wooden bungalows. The ones I stayed in were clean and comfortable, with a ceiling fan, (rather noisy) air-con and mosquito net (not needed for me), and it is very pleasant to...

The bungalows are beautifully constructed in a quiet, pretty garden in a sidestreet just a few metres from the road which runs along the Mekong river. Also not far are the sights, the main market, the buddhist tempels and a couple of pretty good restaurants. The hotel is very clean, well maintained & well-run, and my room was comfortable &...

The nine rooms at Sala Inpeng are built to resemble traditional wooden platform homes common along the river. Its a great concept in an area that is littered with boutique hotels and guest houses.. but nothing quite like this. The rooms are clean, homely and comfy, although the TV did not work very well. Who needs television when the mighty...

A very sweet cluster of wooden bungalows with great AC, comfy beds and chilled staff. Each room has a balcony where we were served breakfast each morning and slowly began our peacful days. Totally Recommended.

I can't say enough fantastic things about this place. We stayed here for two nights in July 2012 and were impressed by the place. The tuk tuk driver didn't know where it was but he saw the "intercity" hotel on the map I had printed from the Auberge Sala inpeng website and was able to figure it out. The hotel...
