It is a palace which has not been utilize by the King himself, and it has converted into a hotel as of today.
The hotel itself is also a tourist attraction which not many tourist will visit. If you like a quite place to sleep, this could be good option apart from hotel along the streets.
Is a 30 plus year old building, so do not expect it to be in tip top condition. Within the building, you can actually see some unique Laos architecture filled with dragons and royal features. Some furniture still preserved from its origins, but not many (the King didn't live in the palace itself, therefore there were not many luxury items)
Behind the palace, there is a stairway downwards leading to a prayer area. is very quiet but nice place to take few nice pictures.
The rooms are very standard and spacious, the only thing lack is the lighting, is a bit dark in certain areas.
The inclusive breakfast is not too bad, you can taste some of the local flavor like kafir lime fried noodles. Coffee, Laos coffee, quite good not too strong.More
