What we say: 4.5 stars

Mandala Boutique Hotel, formerly known as Le Leela, is simply stunning. It's a boutique hotel in every way and feels special from the moment you enter the grounds. The 1960’s building was once the private residence of a French family. These 1960’s era villas are highly desired in Vientiane. The owners have made the most of the mod architecture giving the place a chic contemporary update mixed with classic touches.

Even the standard rooms are special and refined. Dark hardwood floors and black and white tones are paired beautifully with a bold accent colour. Rooms get plenty of natural light and you have all the modern amenities including WiFi, flatscreen TV, plush four-poster beds, French press and kettle. The bathrooms are a dream with high-end fixtures and finishings, a rain shower and hairdryer. When you’re done examining the glass cabinets of pottery and Chinese ceramics in the hallways, head out to enjoy a quiet drink in their fabulous leafy tropical garden.

Mandala Boutique Hotel is located in the eastern outskirts of the town centre, on a quiet lane running between Setthathirath Rd, a seven-minute bike ride to central hub of restaurants. The price is right and it’s a pity to have to mention the following: the woman at the front desk who may or may not have been the manager was so frighteningly cold and unfriendly it was unnerving. The bricks and mortar are gorgeous but the hotel needs some work on its soul.
