We are currently here for three nights and are very happy with the great location in the middle of central Vientiane. The signage on the street could be improved with the Pepsi sign removed and the shared driveway before Lani's gate smartened up however Lani's House is a lovely building in a well maintained peaceful garden. Our room is just...

We stayed 3 nights in the Mango Room on the ground floor which is very spacious with ensuite. It's off the main road location is quiet. The homemade yogurt and marmalade were delicious along with the fresh fruit for breakfast on the outdoor patio. The management were great and very helpful with places to visit.

Lani's was the absolute perfect place for us right when we needed it. After many loud nights in big hotels in Malaysia we arrived at this gorgeous, quiet and peaceful house in Vientiane. We had the mango room right off reception and were worried about noise but we had none (other than the Buddhist drums at 4 or 5 each...

We very much enjoyed our stay at this excellent little B&B set in a beautiful old house in very well maintained lush gardens which is set off the main road. The Mango room with attached big ensuite was huge, comfortable and attractively decorated. The excellent breakfast was a lovely start to each day - served on the outdoor terrace -...

Simple yet attractive guesthouse, small and quite pretty garden, very well-located in the centre of town and yet peaceful (not counting temple drums all through the night!). We arrived after a hard slog all day from Luang Prabang, and were only staying one night, and it would have been absolutely perfect had it not been for the indifference bordering on...

I spent a week at Lani's House. ideally located, surrounded by 3 temples; the colonial style house is big and offers a much-expected quietness right in the heart of the city (which i very handy, late ... at night). I came 4 years ago and the whole place has, since, been renovated. Breakfast and service have been greatly improved too...

this old colonoal style but refurbished house is the address to stay when one wants to be in the centre of Vientiane yet be away from the ustle of it. the beautiful garden, the pleasant staff, the morning and evening temple bells next door...this is what I like in being in Vientiane.

I like this kind of hotels. Colonial style, gardens around. The rooms all with different names are very spacious and well equiped. Breakfast on the terrace near the entrance. Next time Lani's Guesthouse will be my choice again.
