Fodor's Review

This colonial landmark has been through many changes: it was built by the French at the turn of the 19th century, converted into a hotel in the 1930s, and expropriated by the communist government in the 1970s. It became a hotel again in the late 1990s. Although it underwent extensive renovations—the marble floors and fixtures are new—the owners have respected the original design. Rooms have high ceilings, hardwood floors, Oriental rugs, and period pieces; the executive suite has a large and comfortable sitting room as well. All rooms have tall windows that overlook lush gardens surrounding a large pool. The lobby, decorated with fine antiques, is adjacent to a small bar and elegant restaurant, La Belle Epoque, which specializes in Lao and French cuisine. City tours are available via the hotel's London taxi, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel (not free).
