      The staff were very friendly and helpful, the facilities were very clean and the room was very spacious.

      No swimming pool. Breakfast was below average.

      Very friendly and welcoming staff. The room spacious and very comfortable. Opposite to the right there is a local restaurant on the river with live music. I really enjoyed it there

      It is a 15-20 minute walk to the centre. As a female solo traveller the road is dark and quiet so best to take a tuk-tuk if out late.

      The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a free airport transfer, which was excellent. Views from the restaurant were stunning, especially at sunset.

      I got a very nice, big and clean room (actually I was upgrated) in the Sengtawan Riverside Hotel for my three days stay. If you don't want to stay in the middle of the action, the hotel is a very good choice and value. By bicycle, it's just 5 or 10 minutes to the center. The view from the restaurant down to the river is great and I think one of the best in Vientiane. Compared to other hotels in Vientiane, it has more style.

      The price for renting a bicycle in the hotel is extremely expensive comared to the price outside the hotel. It was not possible to bring local woman in the hotel. I know it's against the law, but other hotels do allow it.

      This is a perfectly adequate hotel, rather far out of town for a tourist. A shuttle service to town would help. It was very quiet. The staff were all helpful and friendly.

      It was far out of town. I found the breakfast over ambitious. There was too much choice on offer and some had been sitting out for far too long. The restaurant is already looking somewhat shaby and the hotel is fairly new. The hotel is excellently placed on the river. There is potential to use the riverside location as a feature of the hotel, ie, riverside bar restaurant, or to revamp the rooftop restaurant for the evenings.

      The Staff were very Friendly, they all tried very hard to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The Food was good, the Room was big, the Service was great.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Definitely a good value: large rooms, good beds and bathroom, friendly staff and a pleasant breakfast.

      However, the hotel is actually located away from the town center, the street in front of the hotel is unpaved and often muddy. We needed to take a taxi into town, and the cab rates were high. You would be better off in a hotel nearer to the center.

    • Group of friends

      Loved the rooftop restaurant/bar and the view from there. Was very happy with the chance to explore Vientiane from a comfortable base.

      Found it a little difficult from the website to know whether the rooms were suitable for friends to share comfortably. Would have sometimes liked to have easily found transport into town from there... It was quite a walk at times!

      Any of the staff was very good! Good when they pick me up in the airport Little far away from centrum

      Not good breakfast! All was louder! I couldnt sleep1 I could hear allfrom another room!The first evening I was in the rest and very bad service!The bill had twa meals but I eat only one!

    • Older travelers

      Hotel in proximity to the airport (max 10 min ride). Complimentary shuttle to and from the airport. Good sized rooms and bathrooms (hygiene articles are provided). If you can, ask for a room with river view or higher than the 3rd floor!

      We stayed in a room on the the 2nd floor without river view. It turned out to have no view at all. Seems as if they had planned to have a balcony, but it turned out to be a kind of confined space with high walls which could not be accessed other than via the window (no door). - Restaurant rather drab and presentation of breakfast no very appetizing, for lunch and dinner we went to the Highlander Bar 50 m to the right. - Rather far from the city centre (forget walking - tuktuk will charge 15.000 kip p.p. to go there). - Not much to see in the neighborhood.

      Very nice buffet breakfast and the deck that looked over the mekong for breakfast was very serene.

      The hotel & staff were lovely but it was advertised that the hotel picked up the guest at the airport. We booked but the hotel shuttle was not waiting for me. It did not come till I found someone to call the hotel and pick me up.

      The hotel is very poor facility. I stayed for two night and No hot water in a shower room.

      I like the restaurant patio view overlooking the Mekong River. Unfortunately when it rains the patio section is all wet and unusable.

      The bathroom drainage could be improved.

      Reception staff were excellent and helpful during my entire stay. Enjoyed the restaurant, very good food & view of the Mekong River! Cleaning staff were friendly, courteous and neat. I actually extended my stay by 2 nights because of the service!

    • Group of friends

      The roof top restaurant is great. The riverside is peaceful and beautiful. The staff were very friendly and efficient and the whole place was very clean.

      Unfortunately, the road along the river that runs in front of the Sengtawan is not yet completed. But this was not a real problem, just a bit muddy after rain.
