This was our second stay at this hotel, October for 4 nights. Previous stay was 2012. A great setting: lush manicured grounds, stunning colonial period buildings, a tranquil part of the city, parallel to the Mekong River and next to a temple. Our first room, one night, was a villa. It had 3 inconvenient levels joined by a steep staircase....

This hotel is conveniently located on a quiet street but a very short walk to the main street and the Buddhist monastery. Our bathroom ceiling was leaking something black so we were moved to a 2-story suite. The first room had a nice living room with a TV, bath and large bedroom with TV on one floor. Room was fine....

This is the last residence of the Laos Royal Family and it shows. Every room is beautifully done and it sits royally on the Mekong river.

We did not stay but it looked lovely whilst we were there. We came to watch the first film made about Laos called Chang. It was a fantastic experience and is a good film and I would recommend that people come to see it.

We stayed for five night in the Mekong Suite, which is lovely. The view of the river is obscured by trees slightly, but having a sitting room and verandah was a delight.

Well, the architecture is a little unusual. And the buildings are set back so that one really does not have a river view. The rooms, though very well appointed, are a little cramped, especially the duplex ones. The restaurant, on the other hand, is superbly situated, and serves very good food. Al fresco dining on the terrace overlooking the river,...
