We got off at the bus station, unsure of where to stay in Vang Vieng decided on the Malany Villa because it looked appealing. It was a good price for a double room 60,000 kip without aircon, 80,000 kip with aircon. The rooms were spacious, it is on a road just off the main tourist strip but is not noisy at night. Towels, toilet paper, a TV with about 5 english cable channels and wifi were included. We enjoyed our stay here.
In a town with a heap of accommodation to choose from, this was low key, layed back and good value.
Note: there is an air-conditioner in some rooms - but if you don't pay for it (extra 20,000 kip) it is switched off.More
