Hotel in downtown Vientiane

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 26, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in October 2009. It is practically in the city center and within walking distance of banks, government offices, good restaurants, a couple of grocery stores and the Mekong river.

I think we paid US$33 a night for an air conditioned double room with attached bathroom which was quite comfortable and included breakfast. Our room was on the second floor, and we could see the lovely courtyard below where breakfast is served. It was a joy to have breakfast there in the mornings among the plants and trees. There is also cable TV in the rooms with multiple channels.

We didn't reserve the room in advance and just walked in. I think if you book ahead online you will probably get better rates.

There is a small restaurant just opposite the hotel where you can have snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. It is a good place to watch people walking along the street while having a leisurely cold beer or munching on a hamburger.

Besides Penang in Malaysia, Vientiane is one of my favorite Asian cities, and if we ever make it back there again I would stay at this hotel again.

Unique Quality: Ideal location in the downtown area, and within walking distance of restaurants and grocery stores.

Clean and reasonably priced

Reservation was made online and was paid in advance. But the staff was nice enough to adjust our booking since there is a vacancy on the room that we preferred. Usually this guesthouse is always full and they don't entertain walk-ins.

We paid USD44 (or less than USD15/pax) for our triple room. The room we were given had had adequate ventilation and there is hot water in the shower. The room was clean, had a mini-ref, cable tv and a view to the garden/breakfast nook. There is also free wifi. :)

Unique Quality: Mali Namphu Guesthouse is conveniently located near most of the restaurants, banks, shops that cater to tourists. It is also within walking distance of the river park and other tourist attractions in Vientiane.

by written on September 2, 2006

This was just a charming place. Clean, quiet and only 14 USD for a single room with A/C, hot shower, en suite, TV and breakfast. This was the nicest place I stayed during my Laos trip.

I reserved in advance through the service on travelfish and yes, I got a prompt reply in perfect English and my reservation was honored, very nice indeed.

Unique Quality: Beautiful courtyard, outstanding service, breakfast included.

Directions: Near the fountain (Nam Phu)

relaxing place near the center

When we arrived in Vientiane, we first looked for another guesthouse. But most of them were already full, or didn't look good enough for the price you had to pay.
To enter the guesthouse, you first walk through a hall. Here you find the reception. Then you enter a garden, where you can have your breakfast in the morning.
The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated.

Unique Quality: The garden in the middle of the place, where you can eat, surrounded by flowers.

Directions: Near the Nam Phu square.
