We stayed here for 5 days in January 2015, the guesthouse itself is okay albeit a little run-down but has lovely views of the rivers and surrounding mountains. The rooms are extremely dated to the point where they make you feel ill waking up in a morning and the door to our room didn't lock, we explained this to the...

The staff was extremely unhelpful! They had no intention to make the stay comfortable for the guests or help them out in any way. The only thing they want is get the money for their rooms which are mediocre. I wouldn't stay there again!!

A nice enough guesthouse and good value for money (in low season). The rooms are clean and well maintained.Good hot water shower. Wifi a little dodgy and not available in all the rooms, however there is a nice communal veranda/balcony with nice riverview where wifi works well. Nothing special but functional and in a good central location (next to the...

Situated on the Saysong Island we had a room next to the restaurant (food is ok). It was a two story concrete building with 4 rooms, probably from the 1980s. And it shows. These rooms are way beyond their physical and economical lifetime. The room we had was painted a headache purple (inside and outside). The room looked and feels...

We stayed in one of the bungalows on the island with good views of the mountains and river. The bungalow was reasonably clean when we arrived. We stayed for four nights, the towels were changed daily and a new toilet roll and drinking water were also changed daily. The room was not cleaned during our stay, nor was the bed...

We arrived in Vang Vieng with no where to stay and at a cheap rate we decided to stay here, the owner was a little abrupt and arrogant but we over looked that HOWEVER late one evening while laying in bed there was a huge rat running around our room.

Paid for the best room, out on the island - this was washed away on the night we arrived (we were out at the time). The dubious bridge that led there which we joked about collapsing, did collapse, (we narrowly avoided falling into a raging and rising river in the pitch black). Do not stay on the island, its unsafe....

There was really noting good about this hotel except from the river view. We stayed in one of the more expensive rooms with aircon and balcony. The outdoor furniture was broken and we had only one chair. The room was so filthy I don't think it had a real cleaning in the last couple of months. We tried to get...

We paid 80,000 kip for an en-suite room, with TV, WIFI and aircon. It was not that bad but, the bed was rock solid, the bathroom was tiny, and the windows didn't shut properly. On the first night, I awoke to find a huge cockroach in my bed! Yahoo! On the plus side, you can padlock your door, the shower...
