Quality rooms, affordable prices
Vayakorn Inn is US$6 more a night than its sister hotel Vayakorn House, but the rooms at Vayakorn Inn are far superior in every respect.
The bright, very spacious rooms have more polish and poise than other hotels at this price, with shiny hardwood floors and quality wood furniture such as a big desk/vanity, wardrobe and luggage stand. Big windows mean lots of sunlight. You also get a narrow private balcony, safety box, TV, WiFi, and fridge. Crisp, clean linens and new pillows adorn the comfortable spring mattress. The modern bathrooms have a sink with a counter and a shower stall with good water pressure, though the shower is slow to drain and tends to flood. The quality rooms at an affordable price and the convenient location does make up for the lacklustre, less than welcoming service at reception. There’s no shortage of manpower but everyone seems more interested in Facebook and their phones than eye contact or service. Breakfast is also not included.
The hotel is located on a narrow lane running between Hengboun and Setthathirath Roads. The lane is dark at night and, as is the case with any street at night in downtown Vientiane, people should be aware of their surroundings as bag snatchings are on the rise.
