Hi, a friend and I spent four nights at the Sengtawan recently. I won't deny it's well sited on the river, the staff are nice and helpful (a few utterly daft front desk staff who couldn't use the eftpos if their lives depended on it), the rooms spacious the beds comfortable and reasonably good furniture, airport transfers are free. However!...

I went to Vientiane for 2 nights as I needed apply for a visa for Thailand. I chose this place as it was reasonably priced, reasonably near to the city center and reasonably rated in the public. As a whole, I was satisfied with my choice, especially thanks to the incredibly helpful staff, yet my stay was harmed by some...

The hotel is situated in a great position right on the banks of the Mekong River out of the city centre. Its great location on the riverfront gives immediate access to the riverside walk, and the centre of Vientiane is a walkable distance. In the evening outdoor cafes set up along the riverside and there is a great choice of...

This hotel is convenient to access main attachments of Vientiane.Otherwise, I think there is no special than a standard hotel for one or two nights stay.That's all. I marked it as 4 points with 01 bonus point for the Rooftop restaurant, specially when you have a beer there at dust.

Slightly away from the actual center of the Sengtawan is quiet. But you can take free bikes and then they reach the center. The breakfast buffet is simple but they are certainly satisfied. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The room is good (kettle, fridge and care utensils). But at night it is at a reasonable time then quiet....

Love the roof top restaurant, day and night. Vientiane is a sunshine city, in roof top can enjoy the warm and wind , see the birds fly on the river. And the brilliant of restaurant line up on the river bank at night time, full of festival mood and enjoyment. Should be an attractive spot to be visit.

This is a very basic hotel, but the location is very good. The hotel lobby is very welcoming, however the rooms are very dated and run down. It was a bit musty, but the air conditioning worked and helped to ease the musty smell, but the a/c was a bit noisy. The hotel was acceptable enough for the one night,...

Having been to Bangkok and now at Phnom Penh it's plain to see how far the Sengtawan has to go. The bedroom we had was quite large but laid out in a very odd way. We had one bedside table in the right place but the other was on the room. The safe couldn't be opened, there was a coffee...
