          Quiet and Comfortable Guesthouse”

          Stayed 2 nights when we first arrived in Vang Vieng. We saw a staff member straight away so that we could check in - this was lucky as we didn't often see the staff around much for the rest of our stay but this doesn't bother us. Room was decently sized with a very big and comfortable bed. Nice clean private bathroom. Room came with A/C, fan, TV and decent internet. This place was pretty quiet and comfortable considering it is so close to some of the main streets.

          Soutjai is right in the centre of Vang Vieng and is a 2 minute walk to the bars, restaurants and market of Vang Vieng. The room was a good size with a comfy bed and warm shower. We didn’t really have anything to do with the staff, but they were always around and seemed nice enough. I would recommend Soutjai to anyone looking for a no thrills base for a couple of days that is easy on the budget. The only minus point was a couple of light switches weren’t working properly.

          This guest house is fine for what you pay for. The rooms are large with air conditioning and a rack to hang your wet clothes. The bathroom was large and clean. The room was quite stale when we got there and the rooms weren't serviced in the 4 days we stayed. But overall quite good. Sout Jai guesthouse is central to the main street where all the restaurants and activity agencies.

          Very good”

          The room was surprisingly good. However, the staff is hard to find. Also the attached restaurant on the first floor seldom has any guests

          Smell from BBQ restaurant”

          Old building and room with very hard bed. Air conditioner didn't cool but luckily they have fan in the room. No elevator, steep stair. Staff look unfriendly and unhelpful. Big problem for us is room has smell from BBQ restaurant at 1st floor (we got room on 2nd floor). Location is good, lots of street food and restaurant nearby. Anyway, with cheap price, you get what you pay for.

          The room was clean and tidy with everything you need. Located very central to everything. Would definitely recommend for any travelling couples who are looking for decent budget accomodation that is away from noisy hostels and bars!

          nice clean no-frills accommodation: central locati”

          bedding was super fresh, nice windows, bar downstairs

          Simple clean rooms with private bathrooms. Bit hard to find (address on agoda is not enough, it is opposite a yellow bank near central crossroads, not riverfront), staff lacking but helpful when requested. Might need extra blankets though in winter. Good price.

          Very basic but good location and value”

          Room was okey and quite clean, bathroom was very old and had a lot of geco droppings all over the place suggesting it may not have been cleaned in a while! The only window in the room was sealed with toilet paper which was a bit odd and led to the shared balcony so if you want privacy you may have to keep your curtains closed. No tea facilities, toiletries or housekeeping so after 5 nights we were happy to move on!

          Nice view, free pool, food and drinks available

          The room was comfortable with high ceilings, ventilation and river view. A part from the bed there was not furniture at all. Staff very relaxed and lied back. They have a nice restaurant and bar with 2 tvs and free pool table.
