Nice guesthouse”

Phouna Guesthouse is a nice place to stay in Vang Vieng just 5 minute walk from the busy and loud center. Rooms were clean. Staff didn't speak much English, so we couldn't discuss things to do in the area.

Cosy large rooms

we originally booked 2 nights at phouna guest house but extended out stay to 6 nights as the area was great and the rooms comfortable. staff were very friendly however we only had our room cleaned once out of 6 days and we had to ask for fresh towels daily. other than that we really enjoyed our stay and would happily go back if we were in the area again.

Cheap and cheerful”

Comfy beds, mostly good wifi

I enjoyed my stay here as it was pretty chilled out and for the price you cant go wrong really. Owners didnt speak much English but were always helpful when asked and very cheerful. I was there a week but my room wasnt cleaned in that time, although I always felt if I asked then it wouldnt have been a problem. Felt like the owners were just happy to give guests their space and not disturb, which I felt was great. Id stay here again definitely. My score is probably low as I had to put 1 for food/dining as as far as I was aware there was none

Nice hotel in a quiet area of Vang Vieng”

Quiet hotel, good value

this is a good value guesthouse with friendly owner. room had plenty of space and was clean. location is about 10 min down south the main street past lao telecom and directly behind beebee guesthouse if you have trouble finding it. bathroom had drainage issues, so it would take at least an hour after a shower for the water to clear up. there are similar quality guesthouses around this place in the same price range along the main street, notably the one directly in front (beebee), which i found to have nicer rooms.

great hotel with friendly staff and decent price”

decent air con, tv, helpful staff and quiet but not too far from the bars

the hotel is on the first road that you get to when you arrive, it took us a little bit to find because it was tucked behind another hotel. decent beds and air con with a fan too, working flush and a tv with hbo channel showing films and stuff. the staff are helpful and friendly and there is a free watercooler in the common areas which is refilled everyday. all in all nothing to complain about and a lot to recommend.

Great hotel with staff willing to help ”

More than accomadting staff with great family fee. Room decor were slightly dated but gave it more of a homily feel.

overall, i would reccomend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. for the price there was only one aspect of our stay that could be faulted, being the need to ask room fresh towels. other than that, we enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay by 4 nights. in regards to location, no more than a 5min walk to centre of town.

this place was quite nice, and very good value. its near all the action, but far enough away that your not kept awake by the loud music. the staff are friendly, but dont speak any english, and the rooms dont get made up while your there, but for the price you pay it is well worth it

Clean Basic Room”

Clean, good beds

This place has the basics covered: Clean, comfortable bed (at least the double bed), a/c (for a little extra). I think the a/c rooms where we stayed are part of neighboring PANY Hotel. The location is a little on the outskirts but it's a small town and you can get anywhere within 5 - 10 minutes walking. My wife & I liked this place well enough we stayed here again on our way back through town a week later. Summary: clean, comfortable bed, cable tv, hot shower w/good pressure.

So so.. Far from the river but cheap”

Quiet, if u like quiet area.. Oh, and the bathroom was clean..

This hotel was just not suitable for me. The area was so quiet. And it is a bit far from the river, which is the main attraction here. I understand that this hotel was cheap, and actually for athe price per night, this hotel was not that bad. As the bathroom was clean, hot water run well, wifi is pretty strong. But if i could turn back time, i will consider to pay a bit more, to stay in better hotel with a better english receptions, or at least receptions who willing to try to understand, to make the communication easier.

Not very nice”

Wifi and free drinking water from a collet allowing you to top up your own bottles

Room smelt musty and the bedding felt damp. Bathroom had dried blood on the floor and walls - not puddles, but slivers which once you noticed one you noticed them all. Nowhere to hang anything to dry and bedding was not big enough for the bed. We asked for a second sheet and got a blanket. 3 mins walk to the bars/restaurants at the start of the main strip, 10 mind to where you pick up the tubes - you won't want to take shoes on the river so it's quite a walk in bare feet. There were much cheaper room available nearer to town, but can't comment on their condition.
