Dragon Lodge

An oldy but a goody

What we say: 4 stars

How standards have changed and expectations risen in Vientiane over the past decade. This was once a top flashpacker spot in Vientiane, but due to stiff competition, it now feels old and a little rundown, although in reality it still is a decent option, mainly due to price. Dragon Lodge is a colourfully painted building with a dimly lit bar/restaurant on the ground floor and dated rooms upstairs. All rooms are clean, well furnished, and have an attached bathroom. The air-con rooms have TVs and some open onto a shared terrace, though it's beside the road and gets a bit noisy. The young staff may seem a bit clueless, but they're a friendly lot and eager to make you feel welcome. Prices continue to plummet here and have done so on our last couple of visits. Although the rooms feel dated, the value offered in the air-con rooms is difficult to beat. Look for the noticeboard in the restaurant where people post their travel tips.
