Bed is rocksolid and not very comfortable. Rooms are smelly and there is fungus growing on the walls although they try to hide it. Everything comes loose, like the doorknobs, showerholder, towelrack, etc. Then there is the cleaning wich they did at 7:30 in the morning. We needed some rest and wanted to sleep atleast two more hours, but when...

I can't comment on the guest house itself, but the outdoor restaurant near to the river is some of the tastiest food I had in the whole of Laos - deliciously tender beef. Service was friendly, though their wifi didn't reach some of the outdoor tables.

Stayed here for 2 nights. In my opinion 130.000 Kip for an aircon room is too much for what it offers. Everything is old, it's dark and it smells funny. The matress is aweful. Wifi worked fine and mostly stable. Location is perfect directly on the riverfront close zu plenty shops and restaurants. There is a construction site not far...

Room with fan on the 4th floor for 350 TBH -reasonable price. Restroom s outside and very dirty and messy. Felt like DiCaprion in the beginning of "the island" movie. wifi doesn't work as well though they give you a password for each floor. Big bad but holes in mattress. Located near the night market and the big river, don't...

Room is okay, bathroom is very tired and tiny.I'm now used to cleaning bathrooms before using them, the price one pays for budget hotels/guesthouses. Amenities, towels were provided, TV in...

Passport and cash were stolen from room and manager refused to call police. There was cctv in guest house but it was conveniently switched off. Staff were unhelpful to say the least. I think the fact that the room was entered during the night when we were asleep speaks volumes as to why they were very reluctant to call in...

Spent the first few nights in a fan room on fourth floor. Very nice, had natural light and a view out the window. The wi-fi worked well and even had a desk to work at. Then the neighbours arrived, screaming and shouting all night waking me up at 2, 4 and 5, everything about them was loud so I had...

Awesome restauant with lao-chinese food downstairs. Budget rooms are run down and in another building, they dont maintain them because they have more expensive luxury rooms. Rates start at 80.000 kip which is very steep for Laos for such a so-so place but the cheapest we could find in downtown Vientiane. Shared bathrooms were disgusting and never cleaned, but the...
