I am currently a guest at Villa Maly and am very satisfied! The young manager bends over backwards to be accommodating, as does his colleague at the restaurant and the friendly staff from Laos. The breakfast is lavish and quite chic. For their airiness and views over rooves and treetops, we would recommend upstairs rooms if available.

Near enough to all the eateries and the tuc tucs are always outside anyway. Good sized rooms and bathrooms, clean and well provided with all the necessities including mosquito nets.

I liked my room, breakfast and sitting outside (with spiders?). Did not swim. Location was not central but I liked it because one saw how was it outside “concentrated tourist district”. It is walking distance to everywhere who can walk 45 minutes in one direction. I have mixed feelings. First evening I sat outside, after dinner, and smoked cigar. In... More

We arrived at this boutique hotel after suffering two record cold, rainy days on a Mekong cruise. The hotel had gone out and bought oil space heaters for every room which were extremely welcome to our bone-chilled group. Meals were still outside since this part of the world does not expect such cold weather, but they provided a blanket for... More

A fantastic stay in Villa Maly with very helpful and welcoming staff. The general areas (e.g. pool, bar, breakfast room, reception etc.) of the hotel as well as the rooms were beautiful. The Walking distance to the city center made it easily accessible.

This hotel is superb in every department. I was made to feel so welcome and the staff were so keen to help and to do anything extra to make my visit pleasurable. I was given a free upgrade on arrival, and the room was opulent luxury. Highly recommended hotel in a wonderful location.

It was a short walk to the main strip in town, but enough off the beaten path it felt like a secret. Staff was very attentive (we asked for an extra towel) and the croissants at breakfast were the best I've ever had. My only regret was that the weather was too rainy to make use of the lovely pool.
