It took me a very long time to find a place in Vang Vieng that had consistently good reviews. This guest house lived up to everything great written about it. The owner is such a nice gentleman! He is so kind, friendly and is always available if you need anything. He always welcomes you with a smile when you arrive... More

We had a really nice stay! The room is small but really clean and they have a veranda with table and two chairs. The owner was very friendly all the time. We got clean towels and he even lented us a dry bag for tubing.

Stayed here for 3 nights in an air con room and no problem recommending the place. Rooms are basic, pretty clean by Laos standards, spacious and do the job just fine. A short walk from all the action nd by that I mean about 6 to 8 mins. Friends of ours who stayed at a hostel also switched over to... More

Basic place with good wifi. Guesthouse is located in the outskirts of the city (no more 10 minwalking to main área of restaurants and bars. The área is quiet which is a plus in Vang Vieng. The place is managed by a guy who tries to help you, bike rentals, tickets, sightseeing. For a couples of nights is fine.

We reached Vang Vieng around 7pm and arrived at Phoom Chai without any prior booking, but were very warmly greated by the main man (I didn't get his name, but he's the same guy that all the previous reviewers have been commenting on - wonderfully helpful and friendly). We were shown an A/C bungalow first, which is a bit more... More

I was leaning towards skipping Vang Vieng because I hate the party crowd, which seems to be the first thing mentioned when VV is brought up, but I wanted to break up the trip to Vientiane and was interested in seeing a few sites away from tubing. Arriving in town without reservations, I saw the sign for Phoomchai almost right... More
