Stayed at the Ansara during our first trip to Laos. Lovely boutique hotel, quiet but central to everything. Excellent service and staff always so helpful. The pool was clean and lovely. Great to cool off after a day of sightseeing.

Down a small sidestreet, a couple of minutes' walk ('99 metres'|, a sign says) from the Mekong riverfront sits the elegant Ansara hotel. The reception, bar and restaurant are in handsome colonial building, while the rooms are in newer buildings arranged around a lushly planted courtyard with a swimming pool (which is new, apparently). The rooms are spacious, clean and...

This hotel is in two distinct parts. At the front of the site is an immaculate white painted French colonial mansion, which serves as the reception, lounge, bar and breakfast area, with a shady dining terrace adjoining. At the back is a series of low rise modern buildings ranged around a leafy garden and (recently completed) pool. Everything has been...

If you get a chance this is a must stay hotel. From the service, the food, rooms, property, and pool! The previous reviews on the noise are so wrong. They are expanding and the construction is not an issue. The garden is lovely and very pleasant when waking up each morning. Centrally located and a short walk to great restaurants....

I booked through agoda and when we arrived the hotel didn't have a booking under our name. They were helpful though and gave us another room. It's off season so no problems. The hotel itself is beautiful and the room was equipped well. However...we ran out of toilet paper immediately as there were about 2 squares left in there. We...

Ansara hotel was the perfect choice for our long weekend visit to Vientiane. Tucked away on a nice quiet side street, but easy walking distance to the night market, riverside promenade and dining options. We stayed in the Chanthabury Suite and it was very charming. The hotel added a very nice welcome touch with a free bottle of sparking wine,...

We enjoyed our stay here. The room and balcony were lovely as was the pool area. We did have to ask for towels and pool chair cushions every time but they brought them pretty promptly. Similar to a previous customer we kept having to ask for extra drinking water so maybe bigger water bottles would be a better idea. However,...
