We stayed here for a couple of nights when we were in Vang Vieng. The room was basic and clean, it had a tv (poor reception though) and AC. The shower was hot and the WiFi was good. It was a 10 minute walk from the town center and some of the guests were a little noisy at night. I... More

It is a nice place in a good location, just outside the main drag so you can easily walk there. Seems very clean but we discovered bed bugs on the first night. Staff was generally very friendly but not interested at all in the problem (offered us a more expensive room). Only go there if you are equipped with chemicals.

This place is brilliant. The owner is seriously the best - we came back soaking wet after a day of tubing and he offered us a free shower even after we had checked out. The rooms are lovely - such a good value!! I had food poisoning from street food in Vientienne and was actually quite comfortable despite my obvious... More

We stayed in a deluxe double (bigger and with air con) and also a standard double (fan room), both were very clean (although the larger room had ants in the shower when we first arrived!) but we actually preferred the standard room- it was a bit further from the main entrance and with traditional decor and very good value at...

We recently stayed at Phoomchai and due to my own clumsiness had a minor injury that required medical attention. The owner and his wife immediately drove us to the hospital, stayed the entire time and translated the doctors information. His kindness and support was truly above and beyond and I am so thankful for his help. The accommodations were lovely,... More

Very friendly owner, helped us fixing the aircon and the shower. He also organised a new years eve barbeque with free food and drinks, this was really great! The... More

We stayed here for five nights at everything was quit alright. We had an aircon room, which was quit specious. The furniture was a bit outdated and the room looked quit sober. The bathroom is basic but has hot water. The lights need replacement, since they're noisy. The ambiance is very good and it has a very nice owner! He... More

we changed after one night in another hotel to phoomchai because for half of the price we found everything we needed. spacious proper bungalows, little nice terrace and especially a warm, helpfully owner. no luxury accommodation but great value for the money.

We have stayed in Vang Vieng just for one day, as we have been too disturbed by the destruction of quiet and charming Lao culture in this town, happy pizza offers and drunk people creeping along the roads. Therefore we likely cannot justify our accomodation seriously. Anyway, smiling friendly owner warmly welcomed us and brought us to more than basic... More

Do not stay here. Or if you do; do not use their "safety box" because the staff will steal your money from your safety bag. They didn't even care to fix things. Otherwise, the room was tolerable for two nights, if a few spiders or gang of ants don't bother you.
