Slightly overpriced budget hotel
The Vientiane Star has friendly management and modern looking private rooms catering to budget travellers.
A nifty courtyard area tucked away from the street is the perfect place to hang out, drink a beer, surf the internet and meet new friends. This is also where the included breakfast is served. The rooms are tiny and come with a super rock hard bed, flatscreen cable TV, bedside table, WiFi and clean tiled floors. The position of the shower in some rooms is inconvenient in that it sprays against the bathroom door and water runs down into the bedroom. Vientiane Star straddles a place between backpacker and flashpacker. A pretty good place to stay, but in terms of price and value, there are a few better such as Mixay Paradise.
