Be sure to look at the photos in my review. This is by far the worst place I've ever stayed in 25 years of travelling. When we arrived we were met with total apathy before being shown to our room by a 10 year old boy and were appalled at the room given to us. The hotel looks unfinished as...

The Guesthouse located in great location with nice river and mountain view. Guesthouse is near bars, restaurants, tour operators, supermarkets and tube-rentals. However, now the guesthouse having renovation and outside the road does not maintain.

This guesthouse has a great location in the middle of Vang Vieng near bars, restaurants, touroperators, supermarkets and tube-rentals. You can easily go by and visit all the things you want to visit. The staff is kind of grumpy and doesn't make you feel welcome at all! Pay, go to your room and go away is the service in this...

It seems clean, but strong smell inside the room, the bathroom is poor, even without a ventilation fan. Of course without any disposable products. When i get up, itched my body, maybe bitten by insects, too terrible.

The Popular View Guesthouse has everything you need for a most comfortable stay and if you book a balcony room over looking the river with the mountains behind, you have found Paradise. If the Popular View Guesthouse does not have it, there is a motor bike and laundry next door, just come out and turn left and your there, you...

So you have to take into account this is cheap for the area. It is ankh be a disgustingly disrespectful club that will blast the music as late as it can which is 1:30. Then drunk people yelling at the tuk tuk drivers followed. We had a roach crawl on the bed and then had to do a full room...

The rooms are nothing special. We book one double with the river view and its ok. The view is stunning but the room nothing special, the bathroom not very nice (but you don't spend much time in the right?) And the rooms don't get cleaned (we only stayed 2 nights though) the other twin room was bad though. The room...

My friend and I booked this place through booking.com. We were asked to use s credit card, and per usual we thought it was to make sure we showed up. Well, when we did show up, they had already charged all 3 nights, and all I had to do was sign my already charged receipt. Then, the non English speaking...

To be fair, I looked at rooms in about 5 different guesthouses and bungalows in his area, and found this one to be the lesser of all evils. Reasonable price, and the cleanest bathroom of all I'd seen (speaking relatively). Clean tile floors, solid walls and the cleanest linen I'd seen (although still, this all relative).

I stayed here for two nights and had no issues. they are located in a great area close to the main strip, tubing centre, restaurants and shops. The rooms with a view are well worth it. I had wifi in my room but apparently it only works close to the reception area. Some of the areas could use a bit...
