I don't mind roughing it if I'm paying to rough it. This place was filthy. The shower was broken so you had to hold it to get clean. The bathroom was dirty. The mirror looks like it had never been cleaned and the tiles had mould in. The shower unit was primitive. The bed was the hardest I've slept in...

The location is very close to the busy area of bars, restaurants, night vendors, massages, and mini-marts. The amenities provided by this hotel is sufficient and are of acceptable quality. Clean room. The breakfast is a set of eggs (omelet, fried or scrambled) and a large piece of baguette (a very very common type of bread here in Vang Vieng)....

Pros: 1) The view from the balcony is great. 2) The room is spacious and clean enough. Cons: 1) Although the view is great, you can only really enjoy it from a balcony. Because the windows are covered with ugly gratings and nets. 2) The room itself is all dark-brown, looks too gloomy for me, taking into account the nets...

A very pleasant guesthouse down the quieter end of town away from the bars. Very clean, timber floors, great view of river and mountains. Good air-conditioning. Helpful laid back staff. Easy place to spend a couple of days exploring round Vangvieng.Good overall value.

I was just staying in this hotel for two nights and found it easily with a couple of steps from city center (or where the tuk tuk dropped). The room is ok but the bathroom is quite dark, not ventilated and dirty. Our room has the street view not river view, thus I do not know how good it is...

I can't recommend this hostel. Someone based stolen my 400.000 lip approximately 40 dollar from my room. They make it very clever and took just a small bit of the hole amount so that the people think that the people won't count they money. They have also camera but somebody turned the camera and during the period where the money...

Plusses: The view from the terrace is great. Short walk to downtown, but is out of the hustle bustle. Good price ($15 for room, queen bed, fan, private bath). Minuses: The drain from the sink goes right onto the floor. ??? No outlet near bed. Power goes off when key is removed, so you can't recharge while out. Interior decor...

This hotel has a couple pros which I'll list first: -the view is amazing, from essentially any room, but if you are on an upper floor you can laze away with views of the mountains and rivers for hours. -the location at the end of town means you won't be kept up till 3am from parties if that's now what...

“Fan rooms with open windows should keep the room cold enough throughout most of the year. Ask to see the rooms before committing, some are nicer than others.”
