We had a couple of nights here, and it was great to be so centrally located that you could just wander around town and back to the hotel so easily - it really is in the centre of things. And when you wanted to relax, we could sit out on the deck and watch the passing traffic on the river. The rooms themselves weren't overly big, but fine. The beds were comfortable, and the shower and aircon were both plenty strong. Breakfast (overlooking the river) was both extensive and enjoyable. We also ate a couple of lunches here, and they were reasonably priced and tasted good. The only real drawback was the noise from the surrounding building sites - although it may have finished by now. It definitely wasn't the most peaceful stay, but it wasn't too disturbing. If I got a good price, I would definitely go back!

Let’s get the few positives out of the way: Nice breakfast with good selection overlooking the river and nice sunset drinks overlooking the area. Fast wifi but our room was also next to the lobby. Cute dog lives there and is available for pats. Negatives : Uncomfortable beds, stained sheets, stained towels. Cold showers. Construction work happening outside the rooms on the main floor , which isn’t supposed to start until 9 but the workers were out there at 7am. When the construction is finished the room will be looking at a parking garage. Entire hotel needs an upgrade, tv was still a grainy tube tv. Would not recommend

I stayed at the Elephant Crossing Hotel whilst on a group tour, we stayed for two terrible nights. There was no hot water at all which resulted in us having freezing cold showers in the middle of Laos winter. I asked staff if they could fix the hot water, in which a staff member came to our room and stood with the shower running for 30mins waiting for it to get hot as they didn't believe us. The shower never got hot, but according to the staff member it wasn't cold anymore and I just had to turn the shower on 30mins before I wanted to shower...and it was still cold! Absolute joke. Also we were promised a river view, but instead were facing a construction site and scaffolding, in which I could literally reach out and touch the workers from my balcony, no view at all, and very loud noises as work commenced early in the morning. The bathroom was also still dirty from the previous guests, as the mirror was covered in toothpaste and the bench. The staff did not help in any situation and implied that we just had to deal with it, despite us paying to stay here. Seriously would not reccomend this hotel to anyone, super noisy, no hot water, neglectful staff, filthy and poor quality.
