The rooms are nice enough, and the bathroom was recently renovated and clean. The pool is also clean and well-maintained.
The place is also only a few blocks from downtown and the night market so the location is pretty good. The view over the Mekhong is quite spectacular, but only if you can stand the noise (see below).
At night the riverfront comes alive with streetside BBQ restaurants that all have loud music and bands that run until ~11pm. After that it quietens down a bit, unless they have a function in the hotel itself which apparently is allowed to run until 3am or so. That is just ridiculous and rude.
The staff are friendly enough, but speak practically no English so be prepared to either learn some Lao (really you should do this anyway) or use patience, a smile, and lots of charades to communicate anything other than simple requests.
Breakfast is a somewhat greasy affair and will go cold if you get there late, but is plentiful.
If you want to be in amongst it and don't mind noisy late nights then I definitely recommend this place. If you are an earlybird and like sleep, then probably not.More
