-Really incredible views - leaving the windows open and waking up to a view of the mountains was pretty special.
-Nice wooden interior to the hotel.
-Decent bed/room quality for the price.
-Good location at the northern end of the town, near the island.
-The person who checked us in did not speak any English, called someone else who got on the phone to me, asked whether I booked twin or double, and A/C or fan - I told him - the lady then escorted us to a room with the opposite bed choice to what I had asked, and an A/C that didn't work.
-Wi-Fi only worked in the lobby.
-Shower was broken so that you had to hold it with one hand in order to shower.
-The broken A/C and extractor fan that opened up to the mountains made me worry that mosquitos could get into the room pretty easily.
-Bathroom had an ant infestation on the final night.
Overall, at 200,000kip, the room was not the worst value in the world since we booked for views and location and it delivered on both counts. It's just a shame that there is no proper staffing here, no one to help you with any queries or even check you into the correct room, etc. Plus the bathrooms are in need of repair and I can't see the owners caring much at all.
Despite the wonderful views, if I return to Vang Vieng I will seek an alternative guesthouse. I would not recommend Mountain Riverview and will definitely never stay there again.
