Ansara Hotel, Vientiane, Laos
The Ansara hotel is ideally located on a quiet lane right in the center of this historical capital, offering easy access to Vientiane's most popular sights and attractions. The colonial inspired Ansara has only 12 rooms and 2 suites adding to the intimacy and personal service all guests receive on arrival and throughout their stay. The decor is a subtle blend of traditional and contemporary; from the hand-woven silk headboards and cushions to the wood and rattan furnishings, rosewood floors and striking black and white photographs depicting scenes of Laotian culture.
Every room has a private balcony overlooking the garden, widescreen television, complimentary use of personal in-room laptop and internet access as well as complimentary soft drinks in the mini-bar. The hotel has a charming open-air terrace and lobby lounge for breakfast, light meals and refreshments, and a fine dining restaurant serving a selection of international and Laotian dishes which is popular with expats and locals alike.
