The Don Chan Palace in Vientiane Lao, tried hard but fell short of a luxury hotel. Went I returned to the capital I found better. It was clean enough, and the food was okay. Location, Vientiane, is the smallest capital city in the world so no matter where you stay you are well placed. If they just tried a bit...

Visiting for a major conference which meant the hotel was full. This put a significant strain on the infrastructure, from food venues, through to internet. The internet systems were not able to keep up with periods where it was virtually impossible to connect to the wifi. When it was possible the speeds were appalling. Early in the week before most...

Nice hotel on the Mekong riverside. Affordable cocktails. Some expensive shops. It is likely the highest building in Vientiane more or less 15 stories I would guess. One of the rare hotel that has personalized match boxes!

The service we received was always excellent from all staff. They were knowledgeable and helpful and responses were very prompt. The front desk staff spoke good English--something that can't be taken for granted in much of southeast Asia. The lobby is beautiful and well-maintained. The rooms show a bit of age but were still in good condition. My wife loved...

Great service, nice views, Mekong River in front and close to some important tourist destination in the city (Night Market only at 5 minutes walking), walking by the river is quite pleasant, the sunset is amazing from there.

It is located about 10 min walk from night market where almost all small hotel and guest house located so it is not the most convenient but walking by the river is quite pleasant. The room is so so, but the breakfast is good. It has a lot parking and the river view is the best which is totally unavailable...

This hotel stands out from the rest due to its location (out of the centre, on the Mekong), its size and its grandeur. It will provide a 'generic' hotel experience and caters for many large tour groups.Rooms are large and clean; TV with channels in many languages; wifi worked OK, bathroom a bit dated but fine. The hotel is away...

My wife and I stayed on the occasion and it became one of our favourite hotels in the world. The receptionist was particularly helpful. It is worth taking a room suite. We have stayed in other hotels in the town, I cannot remember their names, bur they did not measure up to this hotel. We enjoyed stays here!

“Ask for a corner city-view room since it gives you a river view but is cheaper than the riverside rooms.”
