Accommodation options aren't all that great in Vang Vieng. I do feel like I paid too much for this room. However, I think the other options are worse. The room was clean, the AC worked well and the beds were fine. Staff weren't particularly interested in speaking with us. We were placed in a single room until I made it... More

Nice Hotel in the center, close to all shops and coffee shops (Cafe Eh Eh is part of the Hotel and serves and excellent Espresso). Nice spacious rooms, Ac and fan, and a big shower. The view from the restaurant overlooking the mountains and the river are to die for. One can very well spend a relaxing afternoon just contemplating... More

Stayed 3 days here. For the price we were not impressed. They can't help the building site next door that starts at 6.30am, but they can do something about the rooms and service. They don't seem to care about their guest needs. Staff need to be trained better in hospitality and english. When the new hotels start up this hotel... More

Stayed here for two nights and found the place to have both positives & negatives - PRO: - we had a two-for-one cocktail hour which was well used. You did have to get the same cocktail but we worked around that by ordering in pairs (& choosing different drinks) - bed was extremely comfortable and you got two pillows which... More

I didn't care too much for this place. No elevator, and of course we were on the fourth floor. They said they were very strict about us not wearing our shoes, but the hotel staff and several other natives were wearing shoes in the hotel. A rat chewed through my bag. I guess that was my fault for having food... More

We chose this hotel on the basis of a recommendation from friends who had travelled a few months earlier. The only good thing about the room was the view, however you could get the same view at other places and for much better value for money. There was no hot water and despite it being reported, there seemed no urgency... More

The Elephant Crossing is a great place to stay in Vang Vieng. The hotel is tucked into the river side so the views are great and you are buffered from the overall street noise. There is a nice sitting area in the lobby with surrounding gardens. The staff speaks good English and the attached restaurant also has good food. TravelingNinjas... More

We loved the atmosphere and vibe of this place. Right on the river with riverside dining to boot! Casual , relaxing place with friendly staff and well appointed rooms at a steal of a price. They've been around a while for good reason ! Location is also prime right in town but tucked away enough do it's quiet.

I spent here 2 nights, I have to say that the view from my room (ask for an high floor) is breathtaking.. seriously amazing, maybe the best that you can get in town. In overall the hotel needs maintenance, definitely the lobby and the garden is nice, but the room was small and the bed was ok. Also the breakfast... More
