We enjoyed our 4 nights stay in every single minute. The room is just perfect, clean, big, charming. The neighborhood is quiet but everything in walking distance. We would totally recommend this hotel. You can watch sunset from the balcony over the mekong.

Le Calao is a nice budget hotel on the Mekong side. My parents and I stayed in the family room right next to the front desk for two nights. It was noisy during the day and it was very basic. I would give it 3 1/2 stars. The family room layout can't be beat for the price though. Enough space...

Stayed there a few years ago and booked recently 3 nights for friends of mine. Hotel itself has a certain "morbid" charm (what I liked) but meanwhile it seems a bit too "dead" ... Staff is not very motivated and as there are only a few rooms (left). Obviously maintenance of the rooms and of the building as a whole...

Big room but layout usless. Bathroom horrible - nasty brown stain on wall - see pic, toilet seat not attached to toilet. Requested fix but no action. Clothes wash - whites came back grey and ruined - not ironed, sad. It seems the helpful young guy who mans reception is also the cook, laundry and room cleaner. Very old hotel...

Went to le calao inn after a friend who had stayed there three years ago recommended it. Unfortunately the place seems to have changed owners and gone down hill since then. When I arrived in reception there was no one there and despite them telling me over the phone they were fully booked meaning my friends could not stay I...

We checked in after moving out of a not so great guest house. $85 including breakfast and wifi. Room was lovely with a fantastic balcony overlooking the Mekong. WiFi didnt work as the hotel had either used up all it's allowance for the month, or not paid it's bill. We asked every day but the internet was always going to...

I am happy that I did not read these reviews before I came to this hotel. We just walked in and got a 50 dollar rate after negotiating a bit (without breakfast) . We stayed for three nights and loved every bit of it. We liked especially the nice seats on the balcony, the very good beds (hard to find...

Researched LP onsite 10 years ago and this was the most favorite place to stay in my book. So couldn't wait for this time. But so sorely disappointed; must be new management; bed linen and pillows (4) were first rate. Hot water terrible; on and off; balcony nice but ceiling fan only on the balcony not in the room. Terrible...

The location and rooms are really great. Very nice view from the balconies. The breakfast is nothing special, but you dont expect a big buffet at a small Hotel. With 80 $ a little overpriced, but for a memorable experience in Luang its worth the money. Staff is nice and very friendly. The only inconvenience: The door is closed at...
