City Inn Vientiane
Ranked #13 of 93 Hotels in Vientiane
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 February 2011

The service was extremely friendly, gracious and welcoming. The door guys met me where the cab dropped me off, and carried my bag in, clearly without expecting a tip. The check-in process was fast and yet she took time to answer my questions about the area, and afterwards made the effort to take me to the front door to show me where to go.

The City Inn is less than 2 blocks from a central fountain that is ringed by streets filled with restaurants, cafes, stores and bike/motorbike rentals. Orientation is so easy that I was able to go out the first evening in town and walk along the Mekong River, through several bar streets and stores, find an ATM, deal with the airlines on upcoming flights -- all by foot, all within 2 hours, and all without getting lost.

The room itself was great - spacious, clean, cool and well-lit. The bathroom / shower were clean and had good pressure: shampoo, soap & conditioner all provided. Free wi-fi! Only issue was the bed - the mattress was a little too thin and hard. Also, for a fairly high-tech hotel in Laos (free wi-fi, online reservations), they do not have the universal plug fitments, just standard American two-pronged outlets. Hotels are increasingly using the universal plugs, which fit electrical plugs from every country.

Breakfast was a range of offers: fruit, toast/bread/croissant, eggs, yoghurt & milk, flakes or muesli / granola, and Asian offerings such as noodles and vegetables, juices. And great Lao coffee, regular coffee or tea.

I stayed there twice, and the first time they ended up giving me an upgrade when there was an opening.

We stayed at the City Inn the first few days of January. We stayed in the Junior Suite and it was wonderful. Great value, large room with a small area with a microwave and water heater. Two aircons and two televisions. King size bed and huge bathroom with tub and shower. Fantastic value.
Breakfast was included and was very good as well. Highly recommended and we would stay there again without question.

Stayed late Dec 2010 for a few nights, loved the location (like minutes from everything, Lao Plaza hotel, black fountain...) but Hotel, though new, would need a bit of refurbishment. I agree with previous comments that somehow Laos is a little bit more pricey than Thailand and I think we overpayed the hotel as the standards are clearly lower than what you find in Bangkok or chiang mai, but hey, i can't blame them, it is a new destination so I would say the City Inn is OK, I would give it 3.5 stars. One thing is staff is very helpful and friendly...

This hotel is very well managed and we had a great stay. The staff are helpful and the rooms not over done, but stylish. We had a nice veranda facing the quiet backyard so we could enjoy a peaceful sleep. The location is also great with walking distance to nice restaurants and cafes. We would stay there again.
