Central boutique hotel with a pool
As of mid-2015, Champa Garden Hotel is brand new, boasting rooms outfitted with modern city hotel furniture and finishes.
The location down off Francois Ngin Street is great, as is the pool that the hotel wraps around – this is one of the few downtown hotels with a swimming pool. There are also plenty of sun loungers to relax in.
The 24 rooms and four suites all contain a wardrobe, desk, bedside table, wall mounted flat screen TV, fridge and a safety box. Bathrooms have modern fixtures and a large shower stall with rain shower. Guests can look forward to new white linens and reading lights, and a red bed runner and colourful throw pillows warms everything up. WiFi and breakfast are included in the rate. The rooms’ large front windows are the only source of natural light. If you’re in a ground floor room and have the curtains open, passers by have a clear view in. You will need to draw the curtains for privacy, but then miss out on any sunlight.

Cindy Fan is a Canadian writer/photographer and author of So Many Miles, a website that chronicles the love of adventure, food and culture. After falling in love with sticky rice and Mekong sunsets, in 2011 she uprooted her life in Toronto to live la vida Laos. She’s travelled to over 40 countries and harbours a deep affection for Africa and Southeast Asia. In between jaunts around the world, she calls Laos and Vietnam home where you’ll find her traipsing through rice paddies, standing beside broken-down buses and in villages laughing with the locals.
