I was first assigned room C-6 on the 3rd floor which was a small room with a double bed. It had a nice view of the river and mountains. I had a chance to look in room C-7 when staff was cleaning. This was a much larger suite-type room with the same view. I paid an extra 200,000 kip ($25.)... More

Love the place, great staff... The room is clean, well furnished, too bad I only stay there for one night.

The hotel is at one end of the resort making it a really quiet place to stay. The hotel is run by an Aussie lady and her husband. They can't do enough for you, they are also putting back in to the local community and environment. All rooms have a balcony. We could get wifi in the room even though... More

We stayed there for two nights and had a positive impression of the hotel. It is some minutes away from all the backpackers and tube staions and the staff is very nice. The room was ok, we booked a deluxe room and for our impression we had a good value for money. The room is clean and has a nice... More

Apart from the glorious view of the limestone peaks across the river--a view available from many other riverside inns--the best feature of this place is that it is somewhat removed from the ridiculous spring break-meets-"Deliverance" scene that is the main reason for Vang Vieng. Like all buildings in this slapped-together-overnight town, this hotel is not particularly attractive or well constructed.... More

Great location and staff very helpful, but the rooms are very basic, we had booked the best room they had, with a river view, but it was on the second floor and had very limited views. We had two rooms while we where there and both was very basic. A real shame and not very good value for money

Most fabulous views from this small friendly hotel. It is small and simple hotel but with clean adequate rooms but all is made up for with the view across the river to the mountains behind. Perfect place to stay for a few days or when passing through,

We arrived at the hotel late at night and were unable to see the view. Next morning we opened the curtains to a fabulous view. The hotel is situated on the river with a beautiful, typical rock formation on the other side. Breakfast was taken on a terrace overlooking this view. The hotel was excellent and the service very good.... More

Stayed only one night. Very comfortable rooms but not very big. Fabulous view of the river and the mountains. The restaurant has the same magnificient view. A small stroll into the village center.
