Please update your hotel listing. The hotel we were in had a name change and was not on your pick up listing. Laotel Vientiane used to be Mercure Hotel.

Bus was fine. The destination is NOT any hotel, they drop you off in a central hub and you will need to pay a tuktuk to drive you to your final destination. Cost us an additional $6

For the price, it was a very good service. Have been on a few mini van journeys since then & the bus journey was much more comfortable. No complaints!
