Lani Guest House

The Lani Guest House is my favorite place to stay in Vientiane. It was the third place I ended up in on my first visit. It was the only satisfactory place I stayed in, that time. From then on, though, there was no reason to stay anywhere else.

They also own the Lani II guesthouse, but I've never stayed there and I think it's less conveniently located.

The front entrance.

The Lani is conveniently located in the middle of town between Vientiane's fountain circle and the crossroads which serves as Vientiane's Chinatown. All rooms are air-conditioned, and have ceiling fans, refrigerators, and attached baths. Desk staff are professional and efficient. Cleaning staff are friendly and unobtrusive. Breakfast is included in the room rate, and is served on the verandah. A great way to start the day.

Some of the breakfast tables.

The twelve rooms are priced by size, from US$25 to US$40. bookly and I stayed in a $35 room as a double. I imagine the $25 rooms are singles like the one I stayed in on my first visit.

The location is right, the price is right, and best of all, the air-conditioning works well.
