Built circa 1932, the luxurious Hotel has been restored to its former charm. Re-opened in 1999, the French colonial architecture, its period furniture and its landscaped gardens with a free-form pool, complemented by modern facilities, are some of the features of this historical landmark in the heart of Vientiane. If you see a London taxicab cruising the streets, it’s theirs, used to ferry guests around. They have an excellent restaurant “La Belle Epoque” and an open air sidewalk café.
Room rates from US$ 105.
Totally renovated in 2004, now a boutique hotel. Ask for a room with a view of the river. Has rooms and corridors filled with countless statues with fierce faces, which generates a spooky feeling for some. Rooms are equally spooky, so check out the room before you check-in. WiFi is provided for free and there are also two free computers in the lobby.
Room prices from 35 US$ (standard room) to 61 US$ (deluxe)
A newer boutique hotel built in Lao style – several buildings in a garden setting. Nice pool. It is somewhat away from the center, but ideal to “get away from the bustle”. Recent guest complaints about lost or stolen items have been verified by local authorities. Be careful with your belongings at this hotel. (Shuttle bus to downtown area every hour until 22.00 PM).
Room rates depend on season and start at 100 to 125 USD (single); 110 to 130 (double)
