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

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 The furniture was a bit outdated and the room looked quit sober.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
