Appalling cold breakfast and poor staff service and rooms dirty and towels and sheets soiled and bathrooms not nice at all. . Not a great experience. Definitely could have done better. Staff need better training as ignorant and lacking any Polish.

Complaints are tools for management to improve the facilities and service. Please listen and don't give excuses for not having clean rooms/facilities, an edible breakfast, no towels for the pool and for poorly trained staff. Lift your game Vonsana Riverside Hotel you are a big let down to this this beautiful city and country. One plus was the free Wifi.

In fact I have not done a review before where I have rated anything so poorly. The room was below standard with regards cleanliness, the bed hard and uncomfortable, no towels available at the swimming pool, breakfast inedible...

The hotel room cost us USD60/night. At this price, the room...

I asked for a quiet room when I checked in and was told, sure no problem. They gave me a room on the Riverside which is extremely loud with live music and traffic. When I complained, they told me that the music will stop by 10pm. At 10:30pm, I asked again and was told that they cannot control street noise....

The hotel is located at the riverside of Mekong and had a great sunset-view and that is the only positive thing to say about this hotel. We had a spacious room but it was so dirty. The bathroom was dirty, the whole hotel was disgusting. Lots of dead insects everywhere, dusty and dirty. We found the staff sleeping and eating...
