My friend and I booked this place through booking.com. We were asked to use s credit card, and per usual we thought it was to make sure we showed up. Well, when we did show up, they had already charged all 3 nights, and all I had to do was sign my already charged receipt. Then, the non English speaking...

To be fair, I looked at rooms in about 5 different guesthouses and bungalows in his area, and found this one to be the lesser of all evils. Reasonable price, and the cleanest bathroom of all I'd seen (speaking relatively). Clean tile floors, solid walls and the cleanest linen I'd seen (although still, this all relative). They offere TP, towels...

I stayed here for two nights and had no issues. they are located in a great area close to the main strip, tubing centre, restaurants and shops. The rooms with a view are well worth it. I had wifi in my room but apparently it only works close to the reception area. Some of the areas could use a bit...

We arrived and got shown our room which was pretty dark as it had no sunlight coming through due to window facing a wall! Our toilet was blocked and when I asked they simply passed me the plunger to clear up someone else's mess! Staff were really not helpful and overall I would recommend having a room with a view...

I don't like giving bad reviews and wreck somebodies business, but I have to be honest. Yes, we got the room 'cheap' for US$19 two days before, through agoda.com, but it was not worth it. Our room was outside back at the bottom, facing two water tanks. If we walked further out we could see the river but out of...

I have stayed in this place. I left 280 USD in my room. The point is that I didn't leave my key to a lobby but I took it. However, there was no 280USD anywhere. What makes me sure is that I had 280 USD, korean cash, gift cards, and my credit cards in my wallet but ONLY 280USD was...

First, the river view is great and it is easy to walk to the river too. Second, It is in the city center and it is easy to find tour agencies and good restaurants. Third, room and bathroom are clean. Yes, it is guesthouse and do not expect fancy interior or room service. Compare to the price, the it is...

The guesthouse is located in the very centre of Vang Vieng. Our room was clean and cheap. The bathroom was just ok and they should work on their wi-fi too, as works only in the lobby. But it's the views that make it all worth it!

So apart from the amazing river views, this hotel was very, very basic!!! The rooms were ok but did look like they needed a good clean and the bathrooms even more so!! The staff who worked here were nothing but rude and could not care less about customer service, more interested on sitting on their phones. This guesthouse is in...
