In Asian terms this is a good hotel. For Europeans I offer 4 star for facilities and 2 star for management and breakfast. The rooms are very clean and the staff try their best. The disappointment for our group related to the quality of the breakfast, the noise within the hotel grounds which spoilt the potential tranquility and the price...

Spent a wonderful week at this hotel. The management and staff were very obliging and warm without being familiar. Nothing was too much trouble and their tips for restaurants and antique shops were reliable and given with the interests of the client at heart.

Candidly, I was charged $500 USD for 2 nights at this hotel via booking.com and willingly accepted. After 25 days of backpacking, I was ready to indulge. It was not the case. There are over 20 hotels closer to the main road where you will get equal levels of service/quality. This review is not about quality of service or staff...

The hotel is a small complex of single storey chalet style buildings set around the main house which also has accommodation on the first floor. It is very much in the old French colonial style, comfortable rooms but not large. The toilet in our room in the main building was not much larger than on the aircraft! The gardens and...

Booked though a travel agent, this was without a doubt an excellent choice on their part. Very friendly staff all around, stylish, nicely furnished rooms, enjoyable pool to escape the midday heat, … A safe bet for your stay in the region.

The very best Body Lotion in Asia. Nice surrounding with very friendly staff. Very high steps to the first floor. The Speed of the bar staff may be accelerated. Kill the rooster of the neighborhood. Efficent Management.

My sister and I stayed at the Villa Malay as part of our trip to Laos and Cambodia. The hotel was lovely, so peaceful and the staff were so helpful and friendly. I even got a Birthday Cake! It is so close to the town yet so quiet.

The property was very tranquil and quiet, even though only 7 ft/min from the exotic night market! Staff top! French colonial furnishings are very attractive! The temps at night beginning February were unusually chilly but a specially furnished room heater provided comfort! Try the exquisite Lao barbecue poolside! All in all very well done!!
