Jammee turned out to be a huge disappointment. When we arrived, the Australian man was not there for several days and the wife does not speak English, Son, the owner was not available, so we were shown to the room, but were not able to get any information about Vang Vieng, no hotel orientation etc.
Month and a half prior the arrival we booked a specific room no 7, then reconfirmed it couple days before the arrival. When we arrived, the owner was away and his wife showed us a different room, when we corrected her we were put on a phone with a husband who told us that the no 7 is occupied by a man whose wife was taken to a hospital and it will be available for us the following day.
We stayed in a room on a ground floor, which we do not recommend, you get lots of noise from the hallway, the wall with a hallway is actually huge window covered by a thin curtain, so even if you would like to sleep, you get lots of unwanted light.
We went to explore the surroundings the following day and upon our arrival found out that we still do not have the confirmed room. This time the owner started to create a smoke screen first saying that he has someone who booked this room for 6 nights, then told me I would have to pay $25/night to have it, instead of confirmed 100 000 kip.
We decided to stay in a different room on the 1st floor with a balcony as we did not have time to look for another place to stay. It turned out that the owner lied to us about the guests wife being in hospital, the same couple stayed in the room no 7 for the whole time and my guess is that the owner did not want to tell them that the room has been reserved for us.
One evening we asked if we can have a breakfast at 7:30 as we had a tour to meet at 8am, when we arrived to the breakfast area, there was no one there and when Son arrived he ignored us, so thanks to that wee were very late for our 8 am tour.
There are few pluses of this GH, it has a nice quiet location and the views from the balconies are nice. But after our experience I would never stay here again.
