We stopped at The Legend for 3 nights enroute to Laos by boat down the Mekong. The hotel has pleasant gardens running down to the river with seating for an evening drink (or whatever you wish) with non obtrusive guitarist playing in the background. We didn't use the pool but it was clean with recliners all around. The breakfast was...

This hotel is set a bit out of the main town area so it is better if you have a car or are happy to use a tuk tuk or minivan to get around. The upside is the fact that it has large grounds and is set on the banks of the river, some very pleasant seating areas on the...

I don't understand the recent criticisms of this hotel - we thought it was great. The room was spacious, the shower room was enormous and the garden setting was beautiful. We chose from an extensive range of food for breakfast and the staff was efficient and friendly. Perhaps the reviewer who was surprised that the staff couldn't tell him the...

The Legend is located in a great position, riverside of the Mae Kok River. The architecture, gardens and setting are quite stunning, particularly when lit at night. The rooms are well appointed, very comfortable and are fitted with rather funky bathrooms. The food at the restaurant is above average, but... And it is a big but! The service is almost...

There is a really big difference between daytime and night time in this hotel. Both are very relaxed, but at night time the place is MUCH more beautiful, during the day I would like to expect more. The pool is very nice and the internet didn't work too well (which one only can use in the lobby). There isn't much...

This place has something for everyone, we splashed out on a one bedroom villa with private splash pool. Situate on the banks of the river it is not ideal for visiting town its a long walk) but transport is available. Haven't eaten here yet but it looks tempting.

Not the 'boutique' hotel we expected! Clearly they now cater for tour groups so you don't get that personalised service, and at breakfast it can be a scrum to find a table. We opted for Deluxe Studio was we thought it would be huge but found it rather cramped and badly designed - eg the bedroom and sitting area was...

After a short drive from the airport you arrive the entrance to this wonderful tranquil hotel, laying on the banks of the river. The open space at the reception with the view throughout the garden restaurant is just marvellous. The rooms are perfectly cleand and the stuff is overwhelming friendly.
