Many people dream of waking up on the banks of the mighty Mekong river and at the La Seine by Burasari Vientiane you can do just that.
We had an amazing 3-night stay in their Vientiane hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It is a large spacious, boutique hotel with excellent staff. The position is also brilliant if you are wanting to explore Vientiane.

The rooms at La Seine by Burasari Vientiane
There is a touch of France or maybe just Paris in the layouts and the presentation of the gorgeous boutique rooms. They are crisp, clean and very spacious with a large bathroom off to the side that will make any young lady jealous of their’s at home.
The room we stayed in had a large and very comfy King size bed for the adults and a large king single for the girls. As we are a travelling family of 4 we were able to get a roll in bed for our youngest in the room so we all had a good space to sleep in. She said it was very comfortable and it fits perfectly into the room without compromising on our space. This is where to stay in Vientiane with kids.
Over in the corner of the room, we hade a small table and chairs that we could sit and work on if we were not down in the ultra-spacious lobby.

What is special about La Seine by Burasari?
La Seine hotel Laos has a touch of Parisian flair, I really felt like I was staying in a gorgeous hotel in Paris.
After months of not having a glass of wine and a lovely cheese platter to enjoy it was wonderful to sit and relax in the lobby and enjoy a platter together knowing the girls were safe up in our room on the 3rd floor.
The girls were always welcomed by the staff when they decided to join us and were always made to feel very welcome.
We would love to sit in the window chairs and look at the Mekong River flowing beside us remembering our trip down it to reach Laos from Thailand. This was really one of the best hotels in Vientiane.
I really enjoyed our stay at the La Seine by Burasari but here are my top three.
I love a good breakfast and the kitchen at the La Seine knows how to start your day off really well. You could choose from an assortment of things like eggs Benedict, fruits, fresh bread, tea and coffee as well. The girls always went for the crepes and fresh fruit every morning while Mark and I enjoyed our eggs, Benedict!
As I said the La Seine is located on the banks for the mighty Mekong River. You can sit in the lobby in the windows and look out over the Mekong River.
Some rooms have river views or I hope in the future a rooftop bar will be opened for people to enjoy a drink out there and watch the sun go down.
The Red Rose Restaurant
The weather in Vientiane when we were visiting was a staggering 40+ every day and it stayed hot into the night. One of our biggest struggles in Laos was finding food that we could all enjoy.
We did not have this problem while staying the La Seine as the Red Rose restaurant had all that we needed.
Mark and I would enjoy a traditional Laos Curry while the girls had rice or a salad. It has a great menu and we found the prices very good for the brilliant, tasty meals that we got.

Any suggestions I could make?
I really hope in the future a bar will be opened on the roof as the sunset over the Mekong River is a beautiful sight.
We had some laundry done and while we were told it was a pay per kilo service it ended up being a miscommunication and it was a pay per item service. We had roughly 2kilo’s of laundry and it cost us around $85 AUD to have it done at the end which was a bit of a shock!
