Spent 2 nights here in one of the larger rooms with a separate lounge (not that we remember booking that). Plenty of space and a lovely night sleep on both occasions. Certainly can't fault the hotel when it comes to the room or the staff and the style of the building is very colonial. Couple of downsides though, the breakfast... More

Sabaidee and kob jai lai lai for your comments. We are glad that your stay with Mandala Boutique Hotel was a memorable one. We are trying to improve on our breakfast for our guests and hope that in the near future our breakfast spread would be better. We hope to see you back in Laos soon. Thank you. More

Peaceful. Elegant. Relaxing. Stayed 2 nights after a week cycle trip. Staff were friendly, professional & knowledgable. Hotel is close to town centre but far away enough to be secluded & quiet. Room was opulent & well decorated but reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. Colonial style hotel situated on the outskirts of Vientiane. It is a good 20-25 min walk into the centre. The night market is close by 10-15min walk. Having arrived from Thailand the day before we found the Hotel expensive and clients are not catered for as well as previous hotels in Thailand.... More

We spent two nights here whilst we explored Ventiane. We were lucky to have the executive room at the front of the hotel with a huge private balcony. The room is very large, the decor is striking, but tired. The bathroom was tiny compared to the room. The first night we had no hot water, despite following instructions to leave... More

Mandala is more a large Guest House than a Boutique Hotel. My wife and I stayed here for two nights and were lucky enough to have the large suite with four-poster bed and large balcony. This made our stay very comfortable. However, the bathroom was very small and basic and the shower was luke warm (nearly cold!) Mandala is clean... More

We had to change rooms because they lost water in one of their buildings. The room they moved us to had no hot water. It was very cold. I would not recommend this hotel. The facility is nice enough but the water is a serious problem. We are moving to another hotel before our reservation is complete

We spent 2 nights in the Mandala having moved from another Vientiane Hotel without spending a night there. Mandala has lovely clean rooms, courteous and helpful staff- some of whom speak English which isn't always the case in Laos, and an exceptional breakfast in a lovely room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As Vientiane changes, so does our villa. Originally built as a private residence for a French family in the 1960s, the site became a school with up to 500 children in 1992 before it was turned into a hotel at the beginning of this century. Despite the changes, our guests still can feel the privacy and comforts of home in each corner of the hotel. The four original buildings host 23 newly designed rooms and are surrounded by a green and cozy garden with seats under large shady trees. The Mandala Boutique Hotel is located in a small side road away from the busy streets of Vientiane, but within walking distance to the city center and just a 15-minute drive from the airport. ... more   less
