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

Others have commented on the humour and good character of the receptionist/manager/owner. He is not the owner - he claims that his elder brother owns the guest house. Another guy working there for a short time said that he, not the funny middle aged guy, was the manager. Whatever he might be, he is the backbone of the business, on... More

We stayed here for a two nights on arriving in Vang Vieng. The guest house is in a nice quiet spot at the end of the main road away from the noisy bars. The bungalow cabins were really quaint from the outside and we liked having a small terrace out the front of our room. The owner was really nice... More

The receptionist was very nice and cheerful. The rooms has an authentic wicker like build and are comfortable and well maintained. The location is just a couple minutes from all the pubs area and saves you from all the noise , good for people who wants some peace and quiet.

Quiet guesthouse only 10 minutes walk from all the action. Lovely owner always with a smile on his face. Room was small but clean, with a comfortable bed and hot shower. Walls are very thin but other guests were quiet. Wifi worked well in our room near to reception. Highly recommended as a peaceful place to stay if you're in... More

This was a delightful bungalow, close to town but far enough not to be awoken buy parties. The man I cannot put into words. Lovely man. Would go back mainly to see him, lovely sense of humour. Clean room, nice beds, cold showers but perfect for the heat. Would recommend to anyone and personally return. Only $10 a night
