“all nice and good host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

we stayed 3 nights at loays place and where feeling good there. nice and quiet, off the main street and still close footwalk to the "centre" and bars. loay was really helpful with explaining things to us and his small daughter is adorable! payed 50.000 instead of 80.000 on the website so it was all good, and, after it was available, even one of the two rooms facing the water with spectacular sunset views :)
thanks for the nice stay loay

I have stayed at Mesah View Guesthouse the last three times i have been to Vang Vieng and have absolutely no complaints whatsoever! Loay and his family make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door, the Guesthouse is in a good location, the rooms are clean and comfortable with good bathrooms, and there is great views of the river and mountains! Excellent value for money!

I look forward to going back to see Loay and the family in Vang Vieng again next year!

Mesah View Guest House is a lovely place!
great prices, very good location, amazing view to river and mountains!
But nothing is comparable with the friendly staff... everybody around is extremely friendly, you will feel like home at Mesah View!!

Cant wait to get back to Lao and spend some days chilling at Mesah View!

Thanks for your positive feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

We hope the following gives readers some help in making a decision in whether to include Vang Vieng on your itinerary:

After a spate of alcohol related drownings, the government tore down the riverside bars, which was the main attraction for many backpacker. This severely reduced tourist numbers, although tubing is still a popular activity.

About 6 weeks ago we used a tripadvisor announcement to put in a link to an Australian documentary showing the adverse effects this had on tourism on Vang Vieng. Since there is so much else to do in Vang Vieng and it is such a beautiful place, the downturn has turned out to be temporary. There are people now who had previously never heard of Vang Vieng who are coming here to see what all the fuss was about!

Here is the link to the SBS documentary on Australian TV

We found the place when we were passing the street. We have asked for massage and it was very good. Next day we have checked at the hotel. I was travelling with friends. We spend 4 nights, here. The owner (Mr. Loay) is very friendly, informative and great guy. He and his wife (Fai) also running the business. I had a room next to the terrace. It's awesome. I've enjoyed the panoramic view and the coffee in the morning. I got nice hot shower. The Room is basic but clean. The young boy (Pokhee) is such a lovely boy. He is learning English. I could recommend Mesha View Guest house. We've enjoyed our stat here. I might come back here. Friends don’t miss it.

Room Tip: Rooms with the terrace have a great panoramic view.

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the positive feedback! We hope to rise up the rankings as reviews like yours indicate that people enjoy staying for a bit longer to get to know some of the local Vang Vieng people, not just to socialise with other visitors. And to encourage people to stay a little longer, please check out our Special Offer on tripadvisor or on our website.

Our time at the Mesah View Guesthouse was great. The location is great and the staff are wonderfully friendly. I would recommend Mesah to any who would like to be closer to Laos locals. Being just up the road from the night life also means it us a nice quite place to rest on those days you just don't have the energy to party.
