The reason why I would suggest to stay in MayLyn GH is the breathtaking view from the private wooden bungalows. It was one of the best I've ever had (for only 40,000kip, that's like almost nothing) and I stayed in a lot of places. Just stay on your little balcony, take a couple of beers and enjoy sunset. It is really amazing!! (see also our pics!).
The room is just a simple wooden bungalow, with a good safe and an attached bathroom (the one we had). There's no hot water, but if you want a hot shower, you can use one of the shared one. It's supersimple and clean.
Another reason to stay here, it is out of the touristy area which is a really good thing! Vang Vieng itself has amazing surroundings, but the city centre is loud and it's more like a party place although the tubing is fun!!
If you stay there, rent a motorcycle and do the 30km-loop to the caves and blue lagoon. It's really really nice!! (ask the owner, he'll help you).
The food is ok, don't expect something extraordinary.
And a last tip, take the footbridge. It's free (also possible with motorcycle) !
Have fun and enjoy the view!!
Only tip for the 'resort': a hammock (or 2) on the balcony would be so awesome!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a budget guest house/mini eco resort.We are on the edge of a village our rear faces towards the Karst mountains. We are located next door to the beautiful and expensive Vieng Tara Hotel. We have a variety of rooms some are simple basic timber frame and bamboo bungalows for people who want a more authentic SE Asian experience and we do have more conventional masonry rooms for those who need them. The main appeal of our place is the location, the views and of course our Garden which at times is full of butterflies. Early wet season is best for the butterflies. I recognise that we may not be what everyone is looking for but many people love us.. ... more less
