    Nearly Perfect
    Great location, amazing rooms and good service. Receptionists kind and friendly, knowledgeable about the city but a bit lost when asked about outside tours, waterfalls, etc. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

    Very Good 8.0
    Great service and location!
    This was our first time in Laos, so we decided to stay at this hotel based on their reviews. The location is great if you are willing to walk to look at their local temples and street vendors/night market. The hotel physically itself is decent. The decor in the lobby & room is very nice, but the technology is very undeveloped compared to other hotels. To open the door, you need to use a physical key that’s attached to a long and bulky keychain, instead of a card key. Also, the TV doesn’t work well, it has lots of static and only about 10 channels. Staff is super friendly, and always welcomes you when you walk pass by. Breakfast is good, you get to pick from a menu, and they make it hot and fresh for you which I like. If I was to come to Laos again I will most likely stay here.

    Outstanding hotel

    Absolutely loved everything
    We loved everything about this hotel. The spacious rooms, the large bathroom, lovely bed, the lobby, rooftop bar, the infinity pool... Mr. Hylton was super attentive to us and so was all the other staff. We liked very much the style: Urban/Industrial, but warm. Breakfast was very nice too. Will stay there again at our next visit to Vientiane. Thanks again to all staff for everything.

    This place is truly unique!
    This was the best place to stay! All of the modern conveniences right in the old part of town. The hotel easily could be a 5 star hotel and the rooftop infinity pool that looks out onto the Mekong is wonderful. The staff was superb!

    Exceptional 10.0
    A lovely stay in a bustling neighborhood
    A great location, right in the heart of the French quarter and within walking distance of many sights and shops. We had an incredible driver (pm me to get details) to take us to other sites when we wanted to get out of the city or to/from airport. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was very accommodating. There seem to be a few "tweaks" being made to service by management that will help in future. We booked spa treatments for our final day and the masseurs were very well trained in massage

    Good 6.0
    Thin walls
    Location makes it good for walking around Vientiane to all the central sites, and you're a couple of roads over from the night market and a few tripadvisor tourist recommended bars (pass on Earth.. horrendous service). Downside of the hotel is the walls are made of paper. The couple next door were fairly active majority of the night, which sparked the couple the other side as well so it was a fairly sleepless night with a very vocal party. The beds were made use of. Alot. Many times.
