Reviewed 29 May 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights. We arrived by bus and caught a tuk-tuk to the hotel. Our driver had no idea where the hotel was and drove around the city for an hour before he found it.
We were greeted with with fruit shake.
Our room was so small; barely enough room to open our bags. The air conditioning didn't work properly and took hours to cool the room down.
After 2 cold showers we figured out how to turn the heater box on- we just assumed it was broken. The drain for the bathroom was blocked, so there was always close to an inch of water in the bathroom!
We were woken each morning to the sound of a jack hammer at the near by building site at 6am...
The hotel was centrally located which is good.
We were also able to book our bus tickets from the hotel as well.
But the icing on the cake was that my shoes were taken from the front of the hotel :-(

We stayed there 1 night on our way to luang prabang. The bedroom wasn't amazing. Bed was large and comfy but bathroom wasn't great at all. Shower is mouldy an no pressure at all (one of the worst shower we had in Laos).
Breakfast was nice. Welcome drink was appreciated. For the same price I think you can find better and nicer.
The customer service is not the best: we emailed before our arrival to know if they could organise pick up from the airport and they emailed us back saying "thank you, see you tomorrow". So we arrived in Vientiane not knowing if we should wait for our pick up or not!


One thing we didnt like is the fact that their 5/6 years old daughter was working: it's her who took us to our room, and in the afternoon she was cleaning the hallway and staircases... No comment

We stayed 2 nights in Vientiane at the end of our laotian trip and stayed at souphaphone hotel and I think this is much better value for money
I still recommend this place but not for more than 1 night

Staff was very friendly and greeted us with a bowl of fresh fruit and shake. There were ants all over the table we were eating on, but it's Laos. Our room was decent and had a t.v./air-con unit. However, we had two twin beds instead of a double/queen that we booked. We ended up having to push the beds together, which made sleeping a bit rough. Mosquitoes consistently found their way into the room. No matter how many we killed, there always seemed to be more. There is only wifi in the lobby (not in rooms). It's a short walk to the main attractions and there are several restaurants nearby. We did book our overnight bus to Dondet through the hotel, and discovered that we were overcharged in comparison to every other person on the bus (60,000 Kip). Overall, not a bad place for the value.

My friends and I booked Naphavong on Agoda.com, we check in at 12h:00 am. The hotel is really nice. Our rooms are very clean. Hotel staffs brought our bags and showed us the facilities. They were very friendly and helpful, we walked around the city with their recommend places.

I felt very happy when stay there. Travelers should try this
