I stayed here for one night in the end of May 2014. We got small room for $25 per night so i think it is not so expensive but not so clean too. The receptionist was helpful and showed me every kind of room that was provided by the Hotel patiently, khop jai! The location is nice because it is near so many restaurant that u can choose so that u cant get starving.

Room Tip: Choose one with window, wide window. You will need it as the room is too small in some ways.

We went to Funky Monkey Hostel, took one look and went over the road to this place. $20 in off-season, not too bad. Great location and do your washing over the street for 5,000 kip/kg less! Rooms were comfortable and clean, but had a few stains on the sheets and ants on the wall. Nothing serious!

Our biggest disappointment with this Hotel is we booked it because " It was the last room left" ( if you travel you understand it is never the Last Room ) and it was stated as having a "Rare River View" . What they really meant to say was a , "Rear View" meaning no view whatsoever at the back of the hotel. The rooms (3) I saw were all pretty clean but please note these we the smallest room. I had on my 39-day trip in Asia. First room was first floor, second room I saw was on the third floor with a fully broken bathroom door, finally got a room on the 5th floor at no extra charge but it took me 30-minutes plus to do it and it was late at night, my girlfriend was sick and we had just spent 9-hours on a Van ride and were looking for a nicer place. The young guy at the reception spoke and understood very little English & I speak and understand some basic Thai but no Laotian, so all of that ended up being a negative experience for us. On the positive, hum...because the room was small and the air condition worked the room stayed nice and cool in the hot sun and we did have a City View. The location is also good but please nite there is Not an elevator if you pay extra for the "City View" or "Temple View" rooms, good luck!

Room Tip: If you want a view you need to climb the stairs Rooms are all very small in All classes! "Rar...

This was a great place for being in the tourist strip, lots of handy eateries & street food stalls. The room was small & not cheap. However, the staff were helpful despite not speaking much english. The air conditioning worked well if you wanted a respite from the heat outside after a busy morning of walking.

Having stayed in Vientiane several times, this was one of the more expensive places, but certainly not the best. The hotel is in a nice location, and staff are friendly enough. We had a problem with ants and were quickly moved to another room. The biggest problem is the maintenance. Rooms aren't thoroughly cleaned, very dirty under the bed, marks on the walls etc. Our second room was much nicer than the first but I don't think you really get value for money here. I know you can get better for this price in Vientiane.
