Our tuk-tuk driver took us to this place first upon arrival in Vang Vieng, but none of us inspected the place, not trusting the driver. We wandered into the center of town, and after going to some 10 guesthouses settled down for the night in a Dok-something place. I didn't like it, not the atmosphere, and walking down the street, checked out Phoomchai again, and fell in love with it!
For 60,000 kip, we got a bungalow, twin beds, hot water, gorgeous wooden rooms, and a lovely balcony in front. Throw in free coffee and bananas too! We took the non-AC room, which came with a table fan, and it was fine for us. I had no complaints about it being away from the town - walking 5 minutes is not being away for me, and in fact, it was a blessed relief to be away from the touristy trap that surrounds the center of Vang Vieng. Owner was friendly, affable, and really, this was just a deal. The best place in Laos for me - by a long mile, for that price.
