we spent two nights in the Thavonsouk which is beautifully located on the river Song with a view to the picturesque mountains and valley entrance of Vang Vieng. If you want to stay away from the noisy town centre and the hammering disco sounds further up stream this is a good budget place. We had a simple room with a... More

Stayed two nights in a riverside 'bungalow'. More like a dark wooden box, with what Ruth described as an 'orange box' for a bed. Very basic amenities - no tea and coffee or safe. 2 iron sunbeds with no cushions on the small balcony. (Although the manager did bring us two later telling us that was 'all they had in... More

We spent three nights at the Thavonsouk. We had booked a river view bungalow here and certainly weren’t disappointed with the wonderful view from our balcony. (The rooms without a river view didn’t seem like they would be worth it – they appeared to be quite small and dark.) When we first checked in, the reception was a bit cold.... More

Not worth of the price. I paid USD 45 with such a room in Vang Vieng ! the only good thing is the space of the room and the view. Check the picture.... Walk-in price is cheaper (or for different room type? worse than the room i stayed?)

We were lucky enough to be in one of the riverfront bungalows and had a fabulous view of the river and mountains. We also had our own balcony, which was nice to sit out on and enjoy the serenity. The room itself was spacious and had a comfortable bed. Quite open and bright as it had glass doors and windows... More

We had a bungalow type on the 1st floor so we had a great view of the river and mountains. The room was beautiful and the bathroom as well with both shower and bath tub - however there was no kettle provided and the bathroom was kinda flooded when you shower as the water seeps out from the shower area....

The hotel sent a tuk tuk to pick us up at the bus station. By the time we got to Hotel Thavonsouk , it was just about dark. It is located right on the Nam Song (Song River) with some of the lower height karsts and cliffs directly across the river. However, I was very disappointed when we were shown... More

We stayed at Thavonsouk Resort for 2 nights. I wish I could rate this resort a 3.5 instead of 4. I think overall it is better than "average" and with a little TLC, and better booking policies, it would deserve a "very good" review. Let me explain why. We had some friends visiting and decided to book our rooms in... More

Worth staying here, lovely views from river rooms with a balcony and seating. Rooms large and cool, bathrooms ok and nice beds. good breakfast but tend to run out of things quickly - typical Laos hotel. WiFi in lobby.

I booked this hotel the day before arriving. The first night I stayed in a garden view room and the second night I moved to a river view room. The river view room was better value for money in my opinion but still felt a bit old and worn inside. The breakfast at the hotel was good, once James let... More
