HD video tour of a Standard Twin Room at the Landmark Mekong
Riverside Hotel in Vientiane, Laos. Filmed on 21 January 2013, this video
shows you what a Standard room is like.
What it does not show you,
is that the hotel is (at press time) not really finished. It has
opened mainly to accommodate media delegates attending the ASEAN
Tourism Forum 2013 (ATF) taking place 21-24 January 2013, and is
likely to close once they leave.
It is also believed that what has been used as
the temporary lobby at the back of the hotel will move and an open
air style lobby - similar to resorts in Phuket, Thailand - will
open at the front of the hotel.
The Standard room, as can be seen in the video
below, is large and very well laid out. It features a walk in
closet, large bathroom that has a separate show with both fixed
and hand-held shower heads, a large bath tub that also has a hand
held shower head, a wash basin and a toilet which features an
emergency help cord. The bedrooms are large and most plus sockets
in the room are multi-socket. A small balcony provides the perfect
spot from which to watch the beautiful sunsets.
Once the hotel is complete, it will have a
completely different ambiance to what it does today, but at least,
from this video, you can see what the Standard rooms are like.
One of the hotel's best selling points, is
the amazing sunsets, as the sun sets opposite the hotel on the
Thailand-side of the Mekong, and can be enjoyed in peace from the
guest room balconies.
