“Great view in a quiet location”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We stayed at Ban Sabai for about six days. We had a nice bungalow, #13, right on the river. The bungalow had windows on the side as well as in the front, providing both great natural light and a wonderful view. We could lie in bed and watch the boats go by. The room itself was somewhat shabby but pleasant enough. The more expensive bungalows appeared to be bigger and had nice, new chairs (unlike ours) on their porches but lacked the great, unobstructed view directly onto the river. Breakfast was included and served at tables along the river. Decent food but the tea was never hot. There were lounge chairs by the river and by a small swimming pool. Staff were pleasant. The location was not only beautiful but quiet. No noisy partiers anywhere near.

We stayed here for one night in the bungalow with our five year old daughter. Our friends stayed with their baby in another bungalow. It was amazing!!!!
It was such a peaceful place, didn't see any of those young party people anywhere. The eating area was so beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer! If we ever go back to Vang Vieng, I would love to stay here again.

The rooms/hotel was a bit run down and requires some maintenance. The location and view is really good, however I think it's not worth what we paid for. The stuff were also not that friendly as other places we had stayed.

The bungalows are on the river side at various levels and facing the karsts on the other side of the river. The setting is very beautiful. We walked along the river and saw all the hotels with a view of the river and liked Ban Sabai the best because it looked boutique, shady with many trees, green and clean. Wifi works very well in rooms and outside. The rooms are neat and clean with the AC working very well. In the evening during sunset recommend you sit along side on their recliners the river and enjoy the colors.

Room Tip: I think it is better to choose a room on the higher end away from the river than close to the river...

Gorgeous bungalows on the river, lovely quiet location and friendly staff. Breakfast included was delicious and great value! Would recommend it to couples, friends and families looking to stay in Viang Vieng.

Ban Sabai has bungalows on the river with a nice grounds and a restaurant and an easy walk to everything. The view is beautiful and it's nice to sit by the river at the restaurant for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful - happy to give suggestions on things to do and book any trips/buses for us. The bungalows were nice and clean. The balcony to our room did not seem very stable.

Ban Sabai represents reasonable value for money, but you are paying for the location rather than the quality of the rooms. Older rooms at the top are getting a little tired, bathrooms are small and the balconies look like they are ready to collapse, but they are clean, provide beautiful views over the river and Ban Sabai is right in town. Breakfast is served on the terrace by the river, which is lovely, but can be cold. The breakfast itself is good but not the best we enjoyed at similarly priced hotels elsewhere. Overall, we were satified with our choice of Ban Sabai and would stay there again but in a different room.

Room Tip: Avoid room 1. It is an older room and is adjacent to the open corridor of the hotel next door. We...
