    Spectacular view”

    River at your doorstep

    I read most reviews about the hotel before I departed. All claims the hotel has spectacular view. But I was wondering how come not many people booked. And some people claims the music is too loud from the restaurant next door. Well, the view is exactly what they said. Love it. Love the mountain and the river. It is the best location in Vang Vieng. Like what they said, you can get off from the "tubing" at the hotel door step. The problematic music is not from the hotel restaurant but from the resort "the other side of the river". ( really annoying, spoiled the clam and relax atmosphere.) The hotel room is common. Clean enough. No fridge.

    Lovely bungalow with great view”

    What can I say, we simply loved it here. The view is stunning, the bungalows are spacious, clean and with their own terrace. The 'authentic' wooden house was charming. What people might dislike: Right across the river is a so-called river bar where the tubes come in during the afternoon. This implies loud music for a few hours in the late afternoon (not during the evening or night). We did not mind though, it fitted the blend of hectic Vang Vieng.

    The Best Bungalows in Vang Vieng!!”

    Excellent scenary, good location, clean room & clam environment, reasonable price, convenience transportation

    River View Bungalows is located on the little island in the middle of Song river (behind Saysong Guesthouse but face directly with Song river & mountains). My sisters and I stayed in the Mountain River View room (Triple single bed), we can see the Song river and beautiful mountains from the windows. The room is very clean, not too small for three persons and well equipped with standard facilities. The staff & owner are also warm & friendly, they all can speak well English, Thai, and Lao. WIFI service is available at the restaurant and lobby area. (However, it would be better if the WIFI is avaiable from guestroom.) The breakfast is also very delicious and big enough to make you're full until dinner time!! We love it!! There is a Convienience Store in front of the guesthouse where you can buy the personnel care products, snack, beverage etc. Money exchange & Bus ticket to Vientiane & other cities is also available there with reasonable price. There are a lot of local & international restaurant around there. The outdoor activities such as Tubing, Canoeing, Kayking, Cruising, Bicycling etc. are also avaiable. The bungalow is very easy to find & close to everything. It seems that everyone there know this bungalow & Saysong Guesthouse (This bungalows is at the same place of Saysong GH (close to Tubing station). We think the bungalows is suitable for everyone who would like to have a rest or escape from the busy city. ชอบเฮือนพักหลายๆ .. จะกลับไปเยือนอีกแน่ๆ เด้อ!!

    Belated for check in around 22.30 pm due to trouble of our minivan to vang vieng. Though most of the room looked OK, but the room we got were the only two rooms on the first floor of the separated bungalow next to the restaurant. The toilet smell, poor quality of pink toilet paper. The view from the room is fantastic, should be better if we got the second floor. Could not imagine if we got the city view bungalow, Don't book it!! Breakfast area is on the bank of Song river that you can enjoy the beautiful mountain and river but quality of breakfast is as the price .

    Attracted by the river view and pool to book this hotel, everything is over my expectation, the view from bungalow is priceless, fantastic pool and river view, hot air balloon in the morning and evening is a bonus, few balloon flies over, clear view from my bungalow. The pool is big enough, breakfast provided with porridge, toast and eggs, free flow of coffee and tea, some fruit as well, is really relaxing to enjoy the breakfast next to river. The location of hotel is not said centrally, but is all walking distance as the town not really big, just less than 10 minutes walking to night market, lots bike rental, convenient shop and restaurant nearby.

    The mountain view rooms are best.”

    The view; little else

    Overpriced for what you get. The highlight here is the view, from the 'mountain river view' side. You get to look over the river at the wonderful limestone karsts, lit by the sun in morning and framed by sunset at night. The room is basic, with a 'wet' bathroom, but it was OK. We paid for a double but got a double + single, which gave us some more space to unload. It's on the island, so the noise from the clubbing will last until 3 or 4am, at which point the roosters will start crowing. In short, if you're going to Vang Vieng for the clubbing, you can get something cheaper that will serve you just as well. If you're NOT going to Vang Vieng for the clubbing, somewhere further from the party places will serve you better. Or better still, avoid Vang Vieng altogether - the gorgeous setting is spoiled by the ugly, offensive tourists. Other parts of Laos are a much nicer

    The manager is quite helpful and even upgrade our room from city view to mountain view room. The service from the staff is quite okay even the amenities can not be compared with the city hotel since it is a country guesthouse. The location is amazing as it faces the river which all the water sport activities are there. A good place for relaxation, taking photos and is also an ideal place for lovers.

Hair dryer and toiletries including tooth brush, tooth paste and comb, bath towels were provided. Free flow of refill drinking water from dispenser. Location is walking distance to night market, tubing and many motor bike and bicycle shops and bus tickets agents. Breakfast is 2 fried eggs with 2 slices of bread and cucumber and tomato, straw berry jam and 1 bowl of pork porridge. Tea and Coffee are free flow. Dec is cold so warm clothing is needed. Cons: No shower screen so toilet and wash basin area is wet after bath. Door of bathroom cannot close, door ajar when occupied. Noise from boat on the river at about 7am through out till about 4pm. - it doesn't bother us though. Swimming pool is only filled up to about 2ft so no one can swim here. There was 1 night where there was noise from workers hampering stuff at about 6am.
