Revamped from the ashes of the indifferent ‘Xaysana Hotel’, the new Salana Boutique Hotel only opened in 2010. It is now a contemporary, chic hotel which is more often than not rated at no.1 by Trip Advisor in Vientiane. Its central location on a corner of Chao Anou Road, a district of colonial villas and temples close to the river, provides a perfect base from which to explore the capital.
A contemporary Lao style pervades, with most of the furnishings softening the real timber used throughout the hotel. A tasteful attention to detail is notable, as is the outstanding devotion to service, making the Salana both welcoming and extremely stylish. Boasting a total of 41 rooms, each is equipped with the finest amenities including whisper quiet air-conditioning, flat screen TV’s with endless channels and Laotian artwork on the walls. The ‘Salana Corner’ café/restaurant on the ground floor has a pleasant outlook to the street whilst the ‘The Horizon’ bar/library on the 4th floor provides a more elevated, though equally agreeable, vantage point.
Salana Boutique Hotel provides excellent accommodation in an outstanding location close to the Mekong River and nearby attractions.
