We stayed here for two nights as part of a G Adventure trip through S.E Asia.
So to cut to the chase, it's a really nice place albeit a bit basic. But I don't mind basic if it is clean, safe and well located. The bathroms were a bit grim but in fairness, the room was very clean and had loads of character - it was a two story wooden chalet, plenty of room and really quiet.
It represents very good value with a decent breakfast included each morning. The staff were very helpful - when you could find them! The reception was nearly always deserted! It tookm us most of the first day to realise there are two receptions! One at street level (always manned) and one down at the car park level where the rooms are.
The main strip in Vang Vieng is about a ten minute walk but there are plenty of shops and eating options along the way. To be honest, Vang Vieng is an absolute hovel, you are better off being a little outside like this pace where it is quieter! You only go to Vang Vieng vfor the tubing and the excursions out in to the magnificent countryside. The Tower Karst scenery is quite incredible. But the town itself is horrible, full of impossibly drunk people wandering around lost in their swimming gear after getting back from tubing drunk as a skunk.
So, if you find yourself planning a trip to VV, then this place comes well recommended!
