Settha Palace Hotel Category: Deluxe 5-star city hotel 5-star city hotel Vientiane, Laos General information In the heart of bustling Vientiane stands a remarkable hotel. Built in the early part of the last century, circa 1932, and painstakingly restored to its former imperial glory, the Settha Palace Hotel serves as a testament to the long-lost era of classical elegance, gracious service and French colonial charm. Once more owned by the same passionate family that ran the hotel in its heyday before the change of regime in 1975, no stone has been left unturned and no expense spared in the quest to bring this Vientiane landmark back to life. The Hotel is located right in the city center, within walking distance of the commercial district, shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. It is a 10-minute drive from Laos Wattai International Airport and 25-minute drive to Thadeua on Laos side of the Mekong River and the border bridge to Thailand. If your travels bring you to Vientiane. We truly hope to be able to welcome you to Laos and wish you “Sabaidee!” (Hello and Welcome!).
