Inter City Boutique Hotel Vientiane Reviews
Nov 22, 2012
This hotel gets mixed reviews. I'm not sure what most people's expectations are but I found it to be fine. The hotel information is a as follows:
Boasting excellent views of the Mekong River, the riverside Intercity Boutique Hotel features Asian décor and antique furnishings. In Vientiane, it is a 15-minute drive from Wattay International Airport.
Rooms at Intercity Boutique feature free Wi-Fi and several windows opening toward the Mekong River. Each air conditioned room has a TV, a minibar, and a private bathroom with a bathtub or shower.
Guests can arrange day trips at the tour desk. The hotel provides car and bike rentals, laundry services, and airport transportation.
Inter Stone Steak House Restaurant & Bar offers both Asian and European dishes. Light snacks are available at the bar and they provide room service.
The rooms seemed clean and spacious. Maybe a little outdated but that doesn't bother me as long as outdated isn't code for dirty. I had to ask them to reset their routers because the wifi wasn't working upstairs. Once they did, which they did quickly, it worked fine. So if you enecounter this problem jst tell them to reset their routers.
Breakfast was free and decent. Eggs to order plus other sides plus juice and coffee.
Staff seemed helpful and I had no complaints.

Inter City Boutique Hotel Vientiane is Haunted Aug 09, 2011
Picture are truly a million worth to the marketing media. But if only it was complimented in such ways to prove its worth by the cleanliness and orderliness of the place, surely everything else are alright.
We arrive midday at the hotel from the airport after a 10 minute taxi ride.
The hotel is situated right in front of the park across the mekong river. The mekong river itself is a venue to look forward to and become part of the hotel's privilege by its view.
The facade of the hotel do not manifest itself a hotel nor a boutique. The signage of the hotel is not visible. Traps of wiring covers the dilapidated balcony and the mini plants landscape outside is not maintained at all. Upon entering the main lobby, you cannot see but dusty but beautiful collections of hand-made wooden craft. Carved woods and irregular objects made from stones. Indoor plants are arranged in such a way that everything inside the place is a combination of garden and collections of crafted materials. In short sovereign items. What I don't like is the dusty chairs and flooring. Though they look unique and impressive, it seems perhaps it had been sometimes they were not moved for re-arrangements.
The lights are dim. There is a store for collectors item but have no lights to notice. In fact when I passed by, I never notice there was someone, a staff sitting in the table writing something. There is a business table beside the elevator with one pc for guests use. If the elevator is busy, the stairs can can be used by the guest and is it noticeably that the foundation is not stable. It creats pounding sounds in every steps, the more if the guest is in a hurry going up and down. Or even the hotel's staffs.
Our room has an ample space overlooking to the mekong river. But it is not safe event to stay in the balcony because the live swerve electrical wiring's dominates the entire space. It seems that the balcony are not for use either because the garbage long forgotten are still in there.
The place is like a home. Our neighboring rooms, are free keeping their doors ajar despite the fact that they did not known us yet from the other room. I notice they were old couples. The bathroom has an open window that was just covered with a cellophane. I can even hear the sounds of the next building music.
Everything else are simple and fine.
In the morning during our breakfast we notice only few are staying in the restaurant located just in the inner back area of the hotel. It must be open to the public on the other side of the street any time of the day for outside customer. Still the area seems very dim. Despite the fact that they are using wooden materials for their table and chairs, the area is dusty.
They serve the usual omelet and bread and bacon. But the juices are not fresh.
The staffs are lovely and very polite.
The location is awesome compare to the rest of the hotels across the main street facing the mekong river.
