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 The furniture was a bit outdated and the room looked quit sober.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

I stayed at Phoomchai for 4 nights and couldnt have asked for a better place in Vang Vieng. It is a little bit off the rowdy tourist area (10 Minutes walk, no problem), so it is really quiet and calm at night. Rooms are nice and clean and at 60.000(fan only, 100for AC), a great value. Really liked the two... More

We stayed in the phoomchai guesthouse for two nights and we enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. We had a a/c room for 100.000 kip and it was simple, but clean and big. It is located five minutes walk from the centre, so that was fine.

A great place and value just on the edge of the backpacker hustle and bustle. These little bungalows are spacious, clean, and have a front patio with a table and chairs. The price was super reasonable and the owner was great. He arranged to have motorcycle dropped off for us (no passport required) and made sure that our stay was... More
