I do not where to start....the family is an over priced crampy and sewage-smelling small room. The bathroom is a hole on the floor, direct to the river. There is a construction site next door (read: awful view and noise). The breakfast is barely edible, with a choice between an american one and a british one: do not overthink about...

We came in and the staff was sleeping and very uninterested, they took us to the room without one word. Did not even say hello. We had to walk past a constrution site for the expansion of the hotel. A lot of noise. At 9 pm we could not buy a drink, fridge was locked. And no fridge in the...

This place looks great in the photos, but they are so old. The location is great but where do I start, walk in it's like a building site, paths covered in building materials. Know idea where the check is, walk across a deck that's not nailed down. Finally get our rooms, and you have a family living on site with...

บรรยากาศดี แต่การเข้าถึงค่อนข้างลำบากนิดนึงค่ะ It's really good location of relaxing place for our trip in Wang Wieng but the accessment is too difficult and didn't get any help from staffs when we're checking in. The price we booked was included B/F, but actually you could find food very easy nearby this place. Another point is that you couldn't get good connection even...

River View Bungalows is located on the Nam Song river side. Resort is surrounded by the mountains, and also is on the centre of Vengvieng city. This one is the best point that I choose to stay here. The bad thing is that any body came to the resort for seeing view point. It made us no privacy. The room...

Hotel is river view the best location.You can walk to the city center in 5 minutes. Breakfast is neutral.Hotel's wifi and room is ok. The bad thing is other people who is not hotel guest can go to hotel so not private and feel awkward some time.Over all I recommend this hotel for who would like the best location.

We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 4. These accommodations can be reached by footbridges from the centre of town. Even though it's close to everything, it's very quiet during the day and night with direct river views. Good service as well as an on site restaurant right next to the river.

This was our 4th time staying at River View Bungalows. I always enjoy staying here because the bungalows we get are right on the river and look out at the mountains. The bars can be noisy if you stay on the river but I sleep through it fine. Service has gone down a little bit since the town has grown...

Amazing place , very nearby to street food , money changers , marts, Restaurent , pubs , cafes etc . Food is good but what's best is the view of the river and the mountain . It's really breathtaking . You have to cross a small bridge to get to the place.

We stayed 3 rooms (view river) for 3 nights and not much to complain. Toilet was clean, shower and air-con were active. Staffs are friendly and have service mind. View in front of the room made us too relaxed!!! Note: 3rd night we had to move our room to the back area (view town) and the problem we found is...
