      Charm at a reasonable price

      Another "boutique" hotel that was highly recommended by Lonely Planet. Very charming and under-stated in a newly renovated French colonial building. Appreciated there was both a fan and air con in my room because it cools down at night and air conditioning isn't really necessary. Friendly staff and yummy breakfast, especially the continental: hot, fresh coissant, fruit and creamy yogurt with honey. Also good location on the edge of the action so quieter than some hotels. Reasonably priced (about $35 CDN/night).

      Great but odd service

      From a flashpacker's point of view this hotel is a definite 5-star. Great clean rooms with nice showers, very decent breakfast included and a good location close to the river. The reason I only give it 4 stars is that the reception staff does not offer a great service. Now, I don't need overbearing, smiley staff offering me drinks everytime I walk in but we got no information, no maps, no helpful tips, nothing. Even when asked.
      Perhaps this was particularly noticeable due to when we were there; the city was in the middle of its huge celebrations around the end of Buddhist Lent, with the Water Festival in full flow, etc. The hotel was right in the middle of this (super noisy until late but that was just because of the holiday, normally I'm sure it would be pretty quiet) and we were obviously curious about the itinerary of events, what was open, what was closed, etc but the staff was not able to give us more than one-word answers. I think Khamvongsa wants to be a business hotel and therefore put on a very professional, serious attitude (not rude) but it just feels odd; I think they need to think about their overall 'tone'. The breakfast staff was quite nice though. All in all I'd definitely come back to this hotel if visiting Vientiane tomorrow so that's what matters.

      Amazing apartments on two levels. We had a very comfortable stay here and the staff were very helpful. Well situated near the Mekong and walking distance to most places.
