10/10 Exceptional

Great hotel, modern and clean, excellent location. The night market can be a bit loud but i was fine with earplugs in. Decent breakfast spread. The food night market is a couple blocks away and well worth it!

8/10 Very good

The property is new and clean. Great location where you can access to night market and lots of good cafe around. The breakfast taste good but may have limited options, although it‘s reasonable with the price you pay. The only thing that bother me is in the bathroom, there‘s no separation from the wet and dry area on the floor and therefore, it can be a bit messy and wet all over.

Clean hotel with extra nice hosts
Nice hotel next to river in Vientiane. The people that worked here spoke good English and were very nice and always helpful. The room was basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was quite delicious with a mix of Laos, western and Thai influenced dishes. The hotel is located across the street from the night market so very convenient to find food and do some shopping in the evening.
