Lao Silk Hotel
Comfort at a good price
What we say:
Lao Silk looks like many other Vientiane hotels from the front but once inside you realise that it's slightly more modern and clean than most. The rooms contain comfortable beds with crisp white linen and tasteful Lao weavings for decoration. The hot water bathrooms are small, but they look nice with sparkling tiles and clean surfaces all round. Rooms come with flat screen cable TVs and some have views overlooking the road in front. Overall this is a great place for people wanting a little bit of comfort at a good price.

Lost a little shine
As is often the case with new buildings in Southeast Asia, despite being new the Lao Silk Hotel is already showing some signs of wear: a bit of damp, marks on the one white walls and so on. That said, it's still clean, reasonably comfortable and well located so certainly worth considering if you have a mid-range budget. I will say though that we opted for the cheapest room ($25 online - we wanted to book in advance and were glad we did as it was full when we arrived) as we were just staying a night so weren't bothered about a view. The room was really small - I mean, just space to move around the bed - and there was no balcony, just a window overlooking a wall and an air-con unit. As I say, I'm not bothered about no balcony or view but some might think the description ''rear view'' suggests the rooms are on a par with those at the front, just with a different view, and this isn't the case. I did manage to peek into a front room though and it didn't look much bigger. So in summary, a good place for flashpackers but not for a long stay as the rooms are too small.

Place is definitely new and very comfortable. I didn't actually find the bed as soft it was billed to be, but the room was definitely nice for the price. They have three tiers of prices -- $30 for ''river views'', $25 for ''city view'' and $20 for ''rear view''. I looked at one rear view room, but it was up 5 flights of stairs and decided to spring the extra $5 for a city view room on the second floor. Very clean, although the room did smell a bit musty. LCD flatscreen TV, lots of mirrors, wood furniture was a nice touch. Western toilets, good water pressure, hot shower. Staff was friendly, though I found better prices for the services they offer at local agencies. Recommended!
