“Absolutely perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

This place was perfect! Far enough away from the 'party' island to not hear anything, but walking distance from everywhere. We loved this place and would definitely stay again. AC, WiFi, mosquito nets, balcony with view of the river and TV (not that we used it). Also there was somebody there 24 hours day at the counter, so we felt totally secure

Worth noting - i accidentally smashed the porcelain lid on the toilet.. the next morning the owner was totally fine and charged me an easy $20 - no hassles.. PERFECT

Stayed in an economy cottage for 3 nights. Would stay here again next time I'm in Vang Vieng.

There were no problems with the room. It was clean, spacious enough, had a working A/C and hot shower. The cottage was very nice looking, both inside and out, and looked like it was built in the last few years.

The location was central to the city core, and close to all restaurants.

After a disappointing night at the Elephant Crossing we found this guesthouse. Much cheaper, spacious room with balcony and view on the karst mountains. Room was spotlessly clean, very nice people at reception. Breakfast was a bit poor but sufficient (tea/coffee, toast).

Indeed there are some building activities around the guesthouse but they did not wake us up :-)

Very friendly reception staff who did all they could to help. Rooms were spacious and clean, and had lovely big balconies overlooking the magnificent Karst scenery with just a glimpse of the river. The hotel was south of the town, so a fairly quiet location, but within easy walking distance of the town.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor, west facing room for good views

We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2012. We stayed in the main house with a riverside view. Unfortunately, the view is totally obstructed by trees and bungalows so it's impossible to see the river. The room was ok but not as expected from the photographs on Agoda. The building work taking place was an eyesore but this couldn't be avoided and didn't actually affect our stay.

The hotel is well located within short distance of the 'madness' further in town but far enough away to be quiet enough for a good nights sleep.

Our room was opposite the reception and was quite noisy in the mornings. The accommodation resembled more of a backpackers but with hotel prices. I suppose this is in keeping with Vang .

Overall comfortable accommodation if not slightly overpriced

I enjoyed my stay here but it was a little expensive. The cable tv included in the price does not have any English channels which isn't a huge problem given the amount of outdoor activities on offer. The aircon was good, rooms were clean and all rooms appear to have a balcony. The hotel is being extended but there was minimal noise from the building site. Quiet location.
