Thalwil, Switzerland
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

A three night stay we enjoyed very much. From the upgrade to a suite our friends received, to the prompt action taken when the air conditioning wasn't working properly to the attentiveness of two extra chairs magically appearing so we could enjoy sitting outside the adjoining rooms together. Spacious rooms, good beds and good shower. A bit outside the center...

The Mandala Hotel was recommended to me by friends, but I must say I was a bit disappointed. One issue I had was the location of my room, which was right by the walkway with people passing by all the time as well as staff sitting outside my room on a bench. As a result of this, I always had...

We loved this wee hotel. It's a lovely old building and was a little like staying in a museum. It's not the most mod con of hotels, but that's in keeping with the ambiance of the place. The staff were very sweet and helpful. We had a huge room and balcony so loads of space and we're very comfortable. It's...

A beautiful period building that has been denied love and care for too long. We were unexpectedly given a suite which would have been lovely if it had been cleaner and repainted. Just all a bit tired. The staff were untrained with no local knowledge. The breakfast was a farce. Poor location also.

Hotel is exactly as advertised but the location forces you to eat at their restaurant "Blu". Just spent a night sick as a dog from their food. High priced French imitation and clearly no turnover. I thought I was just eating early as there were just two other customers...wrong!!! The locals know to avoid this place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As Vientiane changes, so does our villa. Originally built as a private residence for a French family in the 1960s, the site became a school with up to 500 children in 1992 before it was turned into a hotel at the beginning of this century. Despite the changes, our guests still can feel the privacy and comforts of home in each corner of the hotel. The four original buildings host 23 newly designed rooms and are surrounded by a green and cozy garden with seats under large shady trees. The Mandala Boutique Hotel is located in a small side road away from the busy streets of Vientiane, but within walking distance to the city center and just a 15-minute drive from the airport. ... more   less
