My husband and I recently stayed 2 nights at Lani's House by the Ponds. It is in a great location within easy walking distance to amenities and restaurants but is hidden away from the chaos of the city in a peaceful and perfect garden of calm. Perfect for our needs at the time! Our bedroom and bathroom were large, well equiped and comfortable. The breakfasts were really lovely and the staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this Hotel.
In this city with its pollution, noise and chaos it was wonderful to return in the afternoon to this quiet place with the big garden with shadow. It was also here we had breakfast in the morning. Nice and spacious rooms, good breakfast (we loved the coffee in small pressure pots, and the homemade yogurt) and friendly staff. And really fair price. We could have used a safety box, though - an advice for the hotel is to install this. We choosed to bring the valuables with us, when we left the hotel.
Lani’s house is the perfect place to stay for those who like peace and tranquility. Despite its central location its an oasis of calm. An ample breakfast is served in the outdoor dining area and garden. The room we were in was spacious with air con and tv. The en suite bathroom was also spacious with a decent shower. A great place to stay. There’s even a monastery next door !
After the frenzy of end of semester tasks and a three day trip to get here, a place to just relax was our key objective for this part of our Laos tour. Lani's was perfect. Our room was beautifully reminiscent of a Graham Greene novel with a comfortable bed and an amazing bathroom. And then there was the balcony...pure joy. A view of the temple next door, lovely furniture, and even a fridge for keeping something cold to drink handy. Some afternoons we spent hours reading and talking there before venturing out into the neighborhood for something to eat. And this was never a problem as the location is within quick walking distance to a fabulous collection of eclectic restaurants. Our mornings with a bit more energetic with a boost from breakfast on the terrace. French press coffee, homemade jams and yogurt, and eggs made to order. The neighborhood begged to be explored and just wandering always brought new adventures. The building and grounds were full of details which conveyed the care and thoughtfulness of the owners. Lots of wonderful art both old and new. The staff were kind and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. We highly recommend this spot if you need tranquility in the middle of this beautiful city.…
I spent three nights at this lovely place last August/September and have fond memories of it.My room was very spacious,super clean and was serviced daily.Breakfast was served on the terrace at the front and was very substantial.I want to pay tribute to Mr Lai who took my reservation over the telephone and handled check-in.He was friendly and helpful and was available to offer assistance when needed.This guesthouse is in a very central location and yet it offers great sleep quality....I am happy to recommend this guesthouse and gladly give it 10 out of 10.
