My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. I booked this place because of the decent reviews but this is the worst hotel experience I've had in Laos or in the US! This place is more expensive than the other nearby guesthouses. We probabaly would have been better off paying less money and probably enjoying that hotel more. I...

The hotel is well located in the middle of the city. The rooms are fine. The prices are reasonable. Breakfast is far below expectation. What really offends me is that no one in this hotel is able to speak only a few words English. No question can be answered no clarification can be followed up. This is really a no...

We stay their for 1 night. The room was very nice and was clean. The bathroom was also good. The people are friendly, but in the restaurant they hardly understand English. The breakfast is simple. The dinner was good.

We stayed the for one night. This hotel fulfiled its purpose. However, don't expect anything "charming". Like the city, this hotel is nothing spectacular. A clean hotel with nice rooms and good service. While we were there, there were works in the backyard which probably somewhat reduced the charm.

Stayed here for just one night while driving through Laos. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with stylish decor. Restaurant was very good for our dinner and a simple breakfast in the morning. It's a good location surrounded by shops so you can easily walk around them. Across the road is a park where you can enjoy the green also....

On the positive side, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, there is running hot water, and free wifi is available in the lobby. (The hotel is fairly new.) On the negative side, the bathroom is tiny and the water is just barely hot enough for a shower; the walls between rooms are thin and the buffet breakfast is...

After spending a few nights in northern remote areas of Laos I was looking forward to a hot shower and nicer rooms here. I was pleasantly surprised to find swan towel art on the bed and working TV, faucet and clean bedding until I went into the shower. Unfortunately the water was lukewarm and was too cold for a full...

"Utmost Luxury Hotel in Oudomxay Province" as it calls itself, this hotel is still a pleasant surprise in an otherwise dusty and unintesting city. Oudomxay just happens to be a great starting point for great hilltribe trecking, boats and other adventures. So yes, this place is well worth it's price. Bedrooms are clean, everything works decently well, incllusive free wifi,...

This is a modern hotel with comfortable rooms. The toilet and shower are in a separate room which is quite small. If you are sitting, you cannot close the door. There is good hot water and pressure and good air conditioning. There is also fairly good (and free) wi-fi. The public market is two blocks away. At night, there is...

“All rooms face the courtyard. Music is played from 1900-2100 hours each evening. There is no lift / elevator in this three floor hotel.”

“As there is no elevator, the 2nd floor is the better option.”
