“Great view but could improve its service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The view from our river view room was breathtaking like something out of a postcard. However on the whole the place was disappointing. Rooms were clean but bathroom was dated and air con was so loud I had trouble sleeping. Pool was a nice relief from the heat but staff did not put away used towels nor drink glasses/bottles left around by guests so looked a little unkept. On one day our room wasn't even cleaned and I needed to request we get new towels and that the room be cleaned. Breakfast was bad. It was open air room and staff did not adequately cover the food so had flies allover it - not very appetising. This hotel could be so much better if it improved its service.

Our 3rd time staying here. I still like the place but it needs a bit of work. We stayed here when it first opened and it was amazing. Not quite as nice now but a good hotel nonetheless. The bad reviews here I don't understand.

We booked the Vansana through internet (I think it was via booking, but could be via Agoda). We paid 60 USD for the room.
When we arrived, we were given a room with a view, but in the first floor in front of the parking, so really we couldn't see anything....
After complaining, they offered us another room, in the same floor like reception, with a better view from the river...
Room is simple, with a fridge and big bathroom. It was clean, but everything was a bit old (check my photos from the lamps and the towels...)...
Breakfast is not good. I guess they cater lots of koreans and the options are limited...
There is a swimming pool, which we didn't try.
Air con is a bit noisy.
After one night, we walked in the city and we found a cheaper hotel with bungalows just in the river, so we changed without any doubt.
Would I recommend it? Probably not if you are travelling alone. There are better options in town.

Stayed here for one night on my travels through Lao and although not the best hotel in Vang Vieng was worth the price I paid. They showed you the room before you accept and if they had better rooms advised of that. The rooms were clean and big enough for the one night I was staying although a tad out dated. We had a balcony over looking the river which was great to relax and have a nice cold beer or glass of wine. The pool was clean and also big enough to take a dip if that was your scene. If you plan on staying here make sure you get a room with a river view.

We stayed two nights in this riverside hotel and enjoyed the views sunset and the relaxed atmosphere. Food was good and we also made use of the small meetingroom. Friendly service and nice rooms although not all with riverview.

Only had one night but we had a massive room with large bathroom. Very powerful shower. All very clean. Good toiletries provided. Beautiful view of the river especially in the morning light. Obviously caters a lot for groups but as independent travellers we were still well looked after. Great baguettes at breakfast but coffee not as good as elsewhere in Laos. Cooked options available. The hotel was very quiet to be in even though a lot of guests. Pool looked great but we didn't have tme to use it. SunBeds could do with updating. Good location for walking into town for bars and restaurants. Would have liked another night to explore the area more
