Settha Palace Hotel
Nestled in the heart of central Vientiane in a tropical garden setting, The Settha Palace Hotel is a magnificent, family-run, boutique hotel that is a nostalgic reminder of the days when travel was romantic and beautiful as it was exciting. Now celebrating over 80 years in business, the Settha Palace Hotel has maintained a tradition of high-quality service that established it as one of the first 5-star hotels in Vientiane.
The hotel has been updated over the years to include a well-equipped fitness center, as well as a business center and meeting rooms to serve business travelers. The hotel has preserved its charming ambiance with Italian marble floors and rosewood furniture in all the guest rooms, but entered the 21st century with the satellite LCD TV in every room as well the free Wifi they offer.
