The Ansara Hotel in Vientiane, which I noted in a post a while back, now has some ‘green season’ (marketing-speak for rainy season) special offers. The basic deal is, if you stay three nights, you only pay for two. More discounts are available for longer stays. See the Ansara Hotel web site for more details.

I just found out about a new hotel in Vientiane that sounds very promising. The Ansara Hotel has just 14 rooms, two of which are large suites, built within a compound of colonial styled buildings. Room amenities include – get this – a complimentary laptop as well as free wi-fi. Soft drinks from the mini-bar are also complimentary. Even though it’s a small hotel, Ansara has three food and beverage outlets: the Lobby Bar, the casual dining Terrace Lounge and the fine dining La Signature.
The location for Ansara is quite good. It’s close to the river and within an easy stroll to the fountain area as well. Compared to Vientiane’s only other POSH option, Setha Palace, Ansara probably has a much better location.
I’m not sure when I’ll be back in Vientiane again, but I’ll definitely be checking this place out when I do.
