If you look something "old style semi-conservative colonial-style" hotel, but anyway easygoing, calm atmosfere, execellent service and food..peaceful area, anyway walking distance to everywhere. Whort of money! I just got good feeling and memories afterwards. Perhaps the history of the hotel knows how to serve clients ?

I have stayed in at least 10 different 5 stars hotels in Asia, especially South-East Asia, and I'm pretty sure that this Settha is very far from 5* and too expensive, even though I'm not a difficult guest! This is my second stay, the first one was in summer - it was not great but still acceptable. But this time,...

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I would like to note that Laos is experiencing unusually cold weather these few days and because it is so rare, the hotel just didn't have the equipment to safely heat up a room. Rest assured that we have provided extra duvet blankets in the rooms for this...

Amateurs , trying but just amateurs. No understanding of service, mattress very hard, had to watch over them to get boiling water, restaurant badly run ordered two dishes - not available then they ran out of butter. Creaking wooden floors (wakes up your partner). Location not great NOT value for money.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It is like an oasis of calm in a fairly gritty city. It's in the center of the city with many restaurants within walking distance. (Side note - the local restaurants may have no ambiance but they have the best food. The touristy places are not only overpriced, they also serve horrible food.) The...

Hotel is situated on edge of town which makes it more peaceful although there are a...

The hotel was amiable located in the heart of the city. It’s very accessible to the local stores and others in the area and can walk from one place to another. The hotel’s location is what draws tourist in or back packers. I don’t know but maybe it was just me or the service was just poor. The staff need...

The first thing that I noticed when our ride dropped us off the Settha Palace Hotel was that it was straight out from Colonial picture. It has an antique feel and yet I fell in love with the place instantly. As soon as we went inside the place 2 guys who I know worked there opened the doors for us...

Perhaps the only colonial era hotel in Laos still operating as such, the Settha Palace is a small gem. Its public and room spaces are quietly elegant, and very large by any comparison. Now that it provides free internet service, all is as it should be in a property that prides itself on its long history. Although cost is always...

The hotel emits an agreable colonial atmosphere, with a perfectly restored building, nice pool area and a magnificent diner room. The rooms are very well soundproofed, you don't hear a single sound from the bustling city just ouitside. Major attractions and restaurant area is just 5 min away on foot. You can very easily reach the Mekong boardwalk. We dind't...

Very quiet and peaceful stay. Had great 2 room suite on 2nd floor. Hotel did not seem very busy and restaurant was a morgue. Had a delicious meal with good service one nite and came back for drinks another nite. Old world charm but not too lively. Used the pool which was fine but nothing extra. No fitness room.
