We stayed 3 nights here and chanced walking up as it was low season. Thankfully this worked as we got 20k KIP knocked off the online price for an A/C bungalow. I'd been in this town many years ago before and a tubing hangover is best undertaken with the benefit of air conditioning. Such is the heat at this time... More

Most of the rooms were bamboo style huts on stilts. We had a little porch at the front where we could chill which was nice. The owner was a very cheerful chap. He was always very happy to help with anything, even willing to take you into town to pick up a baguette. There was a little noise however from... More

It took me a very long time to find a place in Vang Vieng that had consistently good reviews. This guest house lived up to everything great written about it. The owner is such a nice gentleman! He is so kind, friendly and is always available if you need anything. He always welcomes you with a smile when you arrive... More

We had a really nice stay! The room is small but really clean and they have a veranda with table and two chairs. The owner was very friendly all the time. We got clean towels and he even lented us a dry bag for tubing.

Stayed here for 3 nights in an air con room and no problem recommending the place. Rooms are basic, pretty clean by Laos standards, spacious and do the job just fine. A short walk from all the action nd by that I mean about 6 to 8 mins. Friends of ours who stayed at a hostel also switched over to... More

Basic place with good wifi. Guesthouse is located in the outskirts of the city (no more 10 minwalking to main área of restaurants and bars. The área is quiet which is a plus in Vang Vieng. The place is managed by a guy who tries to help you, bike rentals, tickets, sightseeing. For a couples of nights is fine.

We reached Vang Vieng around 7pm and arrived at Phoom Chai without any prior booking, but were very warmly greated by the main man (I didn't get his name, but he's the same guy that all the previous reviewers have been commenting on - wonderfully helpful and friendly). We were shown an A/C bungalow first, which is a bit more... More
