The toilet ”
The facility in the toilet is too old.
Overpriced and not well maintained”
We stayed here for two nights. The room was close to clean, but the facilities were not well maintained. The bathroom was old, the head of the shower fell off every time we showered and there were exposed electrical wires directly next to the shower. When entering the building it smelled like pee. The staff did not really care about us. The location is good, but you probably get better service for the same money elsewhere.
Make sure you get the front of the hotel rooms”
We thought it wasnt so bad like what others say here if your polite and ask for a riverfront room you will be given a polite answer. The beds are very comfy the rooms are basic with tv you can see a nice view of the river
it is such a wonderful place”
The hotel located close to the river and we can see the river and mountain view. We were lucky that we stayed in the side which can see the river. We loved it. The hotel's room were clean and large. It was very nice place to stay for taking relaxing time with someone special. The price per room is cheap and the staffs in this place were very kind. It was wonderful trip in Vangvieng with good hotel. We were impressed!
Like most places in Vang Vieng, this place was basic and not well taken care of. It wasn't dirty but it wasn't clean. Bed was meh and bathroom was meh...just don't look up at the ceiling. The sink leaked water all over the floor. I think this town is transitioning from hardcore party scene to a different type of tourism and places are slow to catch up. Maybe one day this will change.
Super dirty! and broken door”
I stayed here 2 night but the first day I checked in. The room look like somebody already used it but they didn’t clean. I found the cockroach dead in the toilet, the soup and shampoo were used and still there around the sink. Toilet door is broken. It can’t be locked then the door handle falling down after. Also the toilet floor is super dirty! The water is very smelly like rust. The aircon is not cold and no sign or light when you open and also smelly. The handle of room door is broken also. It can spin 360• I can’t open the door and it’s locked. I call the owner to help and she knows that so many things are broken but still ignore like nothing happen. If compare with other hotel in this area. I will never stay here again. It’s not worth!
Centrally located in the travelers area but noisy at night.”
This guesthouse is in a convenient location for short stay in Vang Vieng (3 days) but it's noisy at night as the locals tend to drink out on the street and play loud music.
Room is just for sleeping is okay for staying. No drinking water availble in room for the service.
Great river view”
River view was the only one reason I chose to book this gh. Comfortable beds, Nice wifi on the balcony, water's not hot(but if u turn the water flow down, it's getting hotter). Entire guest house smells.
Don't expect working WIFI as it will work only 5% of the time... And if you pay for balcony don't expect it either... you will get there and be told you have to pay 10 extra dollars per night if you want the balcony, and you'll have to hear them complain about how agoda is wrong and it's not their fault that you paid for balcony, etc. They also put us in a room where the A/C didn't work, which they knew but tried to fool us into thinking it was just starting so we had to wait ... and after 12 hours the room was still boiling! Finally moved us to a room where the AC kinda worked, although it didn't really reach the temperature it was saying in the screen, we had it at 16 degrees and the room felt like it was 27! Also I am allergic to eggs, the breakfast consists of two eggs and a baguette, I asked if I could have rice instead of the eggs, and she brought me a place with rice and HALF a baguette whilst she proceeded to eat the other half in the room next door... I am obviously not going to starve because of half of a baguette but it's just not a nice thing to do.
Barely an average place, needs TLC”
I paid only $12 to the standard double with balcony but when I arrived I was given a ground level room with a wall view and no balcony. Owner asked $5 extra for a room with a balcony. Wifi was very weak throughout the ground level and did not work at all in my room. Breakfast was bread and omelette with butter/Jam which was fine. I give a barely-pass to this property for the money paid but staff just relax whole day instead of trying to improve the facility. I suggest not paying more than $12 for this hotel
good location but..”
it locates at the riverside, good location. Can walk to restaurants , bar and tour company. It's like the center city of Vangvieng. The view at this room i book, can see beautiful view at barcony. BUT the WIFI wasnt work. i cant use it in the room. NEED to walk out from the room and use it only at the barcony. not comfortable.
Room river view”
This hotel has best location. On the river and right near all nightlife, tourist Sites and reservation tour shops. Rooms 21, 22 and 23 second floor have great views. And that is strong point of this hostel. The owner is willing to help if you need something from him or room. But dont expect socializing, which was fine for us. Their dog though is most sociable dog around. Low side is that wifi dont work in rooms, only in lobby.
loved everything about it!”
The room was large and clean! The hotel is close to everything. There's a very lovely dog at the hotel named Soi(?). A white furry dog. She's so happy all the time. I miss her already! Oh watch out for her poop outside your door in the morning!
I have been to Vanvieng 3 times and this hotel was the most expensive and worst. The only thing that was good about this hotel was location. The room was kind of dusty from outside construction. The TV my room was broken and removed but no complain about thag since there was nothing you would wanna watch anywhere. I wouldnt recommend this hotel to anyone if you want a little bit more than just good location.
It was perfect place to stay in Vangvieng. The location was really good and hot water was always available. And I could enjoy lots of time in hammock looking over the river in the balcony... It was one of my best time :) I didn't have any breakfast in this guesthouse, because there were a lot of stores if I walk a few steps away. It was a fantastic place of a nice river view and convenient location and facility. If I go to Vangvieng again, I would stay here again.
Bathroom in poor condition”
Place was in poor condition, room power cut once even with the key in place (but would sometimes remain powered with the key removed). I had to ask at reception for soap because none was in the room when I checked in. Bathroom sink plumbing was in pieces on the floor, so the basin drains directly onto the floor. Toilet plumbing dripped (clean water) so bathroom is always damp, lots of mosquitoes. Otherwise it is in a good location and the staff were friendly. Some of the rooms have great views (but not mine).
Great view, clean room”
It's located in riverside and you can see the river from balcony. My Room was clean and bathroom was good too. It's close to the main street and easy to go to many popular restaurants in the city. And you can enjoy nightlife too.
Popular view guesthouse, non-river view room. When I got there, they charged me 10$ more for river view. But the view was terrible. I couldn't see the whole view of the river. The price was non-reasonable because there was no room with that much price in Vangvieng. The owner of the accomodation overcharged me because I was wholy stranger there. Don't go POPULAR VIEW ever. They are totally crafty.
Budget Hotel ”
It was ok for budget hotel but they should maintain cleanliness and materials safety first. The bathroom door cannot be locked. The bed sheet, pillow, blankets foot cloth were not changed for ages. There were small ants on the bed and TV is not clear. Wifi Cannot be used in rooms. I would choose other bunglows with great view ( even cheaper this guesthouse) in the future. The priice is much higher than its actual service and cleanliness .
