A quaint hotel perfectly set in central Vientiane. Walking distance to many temples, shops, restaurants, bars and the Mekong River with its outdoor markets and an extensive number of food options. The rooms are good sized and clean as is the lobby area and large covered porch. The grounds are well-kept, shaded and private. I recommend Lani's to everyone.

Lani's House by the Ponds offers personable service that made this a home away from home! Every single day our group was greeted by the kind staff who went above and beyond to make sure we had a comfortable time in Vientiane. The staff never hesitated to help us figure out tuk tuk or van pick-up arrangements for a large...

Accomdiation is good. But there was so an lousy event in the temple near by hotel. I woke up two times (3:00 am. 6:00am). I wish hotel should explain the deatil about the temple but not fully explained. Except that, everything was good. 무슨일인지 호텔 근처서 절에서 행사를 크게함. 새벽 세시에도 행사를 해서 좀 놀람. 잠을 두번깼지만, 전체적으로 나쁘진 않았음.

I stayed alone, so chose the basic room 'Lychee'. It was actually more of a suite! Massive bathroom, seating area and large comfy beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. They arranged a tuktuk to take me around the city sights, and an airport transfer. Breakfast was the usual - eggs, fruit, baguette. The addition of the home-made yoghurt was...

Lani's by the pond has just been well renovated. This typical old Lao Guesthouse is smack in the center of town next to temples that add to the charm. Behind the entry gates lies a little beautiful garden where breakfast is served. A real secret hideaway in the city. We were traveling with several parties and had meetings and often...

A hidden heaven in the heart of the old Vientiane area, surrounded by lushness and temples. The staff is friendly and very efficient, the rooms are well furnished with good taste and very clean. The breakfast is very good, with natural products: you can take it on a nice terrasse in the garden. A very good experience, perfect for families,...

We had luck to be invited to this marvellous and charming guest house. It is set in a tropical garden next to the temple Vat Hai Sok off the Settathirat Street. We had a very comfortable suite with all conveniences. Breakfast was served on the serene Terrasse. The furnishing created a historic ambiance. The staff is very friendly and helpful....

Lanis House is great. It is a nice old Asian building with well appointed rooms and a lush yard Our room was huge (mango room just off the foya). Good aircon, great WIFI.

Rowan 916 has written an excellent review describing the interiors of the guesthouse, so i shall not repeat. The location foxes you as its in a lane next to a wat and I-Beam, a great place to eat.

My only complaint about Lani's is has to do with the name. There is a big sign right out at the road that has been there for decades that reads : Lani House. That's how it is known by the locals, cab drivers etc. There is also a minute sign with the "on the ponds" name but if you ask...
