Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Location was good, rooms were decent, but the housekeepers stole from my bags TWICE. Also, the breakfast was terrible. Very unbecoming of a self-proclaimed "4-star" hotel. Avoid at all costs, especially if you are a Westerner.

Tallinn, Estonia182 contributions86 helpful votes
It's a large building , fairly modern in Asian architectural style. It stands right on the embankment or Mekong and looks good. In general it's clean and rooms are large. The style of furniture is not my liking however seen all over Asia. The minibar only had 2 bottles of water and the cafe is not actually operating. My room was not cleaned when I appeared at the room when cleaning service arrived but the never came back. Breakfast choice is OK as long as you take noodles or eggs straight from the cook as all the other food that should be hot is not heated therefore inedible. I went to the nearby market instead, much better. The pool is large and clean enough but only had 4 chairs so if ever there were more company you had no place to lay or even sit down. Overall this property is not well maintained and is deteriorating slowly but firmly.

It is a lovely hotel and their staff do them great credit. What I found disappointing is the lack of basic maintenance, in places, to their building. Good range of foods for breakfast. Would stay again. 1200 baht a night. Probably should give 3 stars but the staff were lovely.

Dear penlowarth, Thank you for having stayed at Arawan Riverside Hotel and for the compliments you express in regards to our free included breakfast as well as our staff members who are delighted & grateful to read your positive comment about them. We are of course very concerned with your comment in regards to the building maintenance, and your concern has been shared with our management team so that we can continue to improve our product and services. We are classified as a local 4 star hotel and we can assure you that in this category we offer one of the best facilities in Laos/at Pakse, starting from the rooms or the Chinese restaurant to our very own fantastic Riverside view and Biggest Wedding/Events Hall in the Champasak. The hotel has many room categories that can match with the different desires & needs of our guests, each room category has its own different amenities, rate and location, rates also slightly change in each different season. We hope to have the chance to welcome you back in the future to show you our continuous efforts on improving our services and facilities. Thanks again for your recommendation, support and the 4 star rating. Best Regards, Peter Ghaly.

This grand and fairly modern hotel has a view over the Mekong towards the gold Buddha on the hill opposite. It is attached to a large Chinese supermarket at the back, with shelves fully stacked but no customers. All the furniture in the hotel’s public rooms is intricately carved, in best Lao style. There is a beautiful Chinese restaurant serving delicious food, but we were its only customers. The bedrooms are spacious, with teak furniture and bathrooms with over-designed showers which offer only hot or cold water. Breakfast downstairs, included in the very reasonable price of ThB 1200, offers a wide variety of hot dishes, a toaster for white bread, and only two types of fruit. Breakfast had more customers but the room was not full, and this is High Season. Happy to stay there again but how do the owners expect to get a return on what must have been a considerable investment? What’s going on here?

Dear duganc2017, Thank you very much for having stayed at Arawan Riverside Hotel, and for your time spent writing such a detailed informative interesting review that would be of a great interest for other travelers who likes to check hotels at TripAdvisor prior to their visit or holiday. We are happy to read your positive comments about the Mekong River View, Chinese Restaurant, bedrooms and the Free included breakfast. In regards to your other concerns kindly note the following: 1) We are glad and pleased to receive both leisure & corporate travelers in our hotel, but unfortunately, we are not a shopping center destination and thus we are not expecting many guests in the attached super-market, we in stead make sure to deliver and provide whatever our guests needs in place for their own comfort and convenience. 2) Our Chinese Restaurant is not only open during meals times, but it's operating and serving guests from morning till evening (non-stop service) which provide our guests with more convenient and comfortable dining experience, guests will not miss the lunch or dinner if they are late to meals times, we do accommodate and welcome all guests in the restaurant at all times, thus providing best personalized customer service to each guest as we do reduce the restaurant traffic and crowd by non-stop service and operation. 3) Please rest assured that the owners, the management, and all the team members first priority is delivering the best customer service and exceeding all our guests expectations, we are blessed to create great revenue and profit but still it's not our first priority or target. Thank you again for your recommendation to other travelers and we are looking forward to welcome you again in the future. Best Regards from Arawan Riverside Hotel, Peter Ghaly.

We walked in and had a riverview room on 6th floor for about 37USD. Has 2 free bottles of water and very basic toiletries. Everything in room is old except the tivi which we never watch even at home. The buffet breakfast is quite good in a huge restaurant but coffee is just the instant sachets. Hotel has free shuttle drop off (one way only) to airport which is 2km away and to downtown Pakse which I didn't go. Hotel is next to a shopping mall but I didn't visit. Thanks for being flexible to send us for free to Km8 bus station so we can go to Nakasang by local songthaeww at 11am for 40,000 LAK per person.

Dear Wsea3h, Thank you for having stayed at Arawan Hotel and for having taken the time to post a review. We are glad to hear from you that you liked your whole stay in general and specifically the breakfast, staff helpfulness, and TV. We take your valuable feedback into consideration to improve, as we attach great importance to our guests' feedback which draws our attention to areas that can be upgraded. Kindly note that our hotel provides free round airport shuttle bus service (2 ways), but it has to be provided only upon request, as not all our guests arrive and depart through the airport, some guests use other different land transportation means at their trips. Once again, thank you very much for your review. We hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the future to show you our continuous efforts on improving our services and facilities. Best Regards, Peter Ghaly.

Great view of Mekong River. Breakfast was average. Conference rooms are decent. Rooms themselves are simple and do not offer much amenity. They are dirty and missing some key areas during cleaning. The outdoor area by the pool was strange, almost abandoned. Decent pool and view, but strange experience.
