“what a view!”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

one of the only accomodation places with high views over the river to the mountains - get a room on the second or third floor - no lifts but worth doing the stairs. very large rooms by asian standard - good hot showers, air con, tv, fan and fridge. good location, can walk to town centre in 2mins. big breakfast menu - would stay there again

Room Tip: ask for room with view of the river - cannot see the river from the bungalow rooms

We only started looking for a place to stay when we arrived in Vang Vieng. At first we booked 2 nights at this other guesthouse. We stayed there for one night and thereafter we started looking around just to check the prices and comfort level at other Guesthouses. We came across Vilayvong and found that if we pay just slightly more for a night, we could get a room that was twice as big, a view and very comfortable beds. The room was also clean and it was a really pleasant stay. It was a nice guesthouse to go back to especially after visiting the caves and mountains during the day.

We are definitely not spendthrift when travelling abroad; we spent SGD $690 (inclusive of flights and accommodation) per person for a 11 day trip in Laos. However, we just had to forgo the cost we paid for the first guesthouse for the second night and we went for Vilayvong Guesthouse instead for the remaining 2 nights we were in Vang Vieng.

The toilets in all the guesthouses are about the same, but the size of the room, the view and cleanliness plus the cloud bed (that's what I call a really comfortable bed).....you should consider staying here, it may not be the best, but it's a good option.

Good hotel, we has room 406, treck up to it as no lifts, but worth it for the view. As this room was on the end, you could see up the valley to the right.
Lovely to sit in balcony watching sunset, and see the kayakers returning.
Staff friendly, breskfast basic, eggs, fruit, baguettes lovely.
Would stay again if in Vang Vieng.

Room Tip: Ask if 406 is available, best view.

This was a nice quiet guesthouse located on a side street of Vang Vieng and away from the noisy bars. We had a top floor room with a view to die for, overlooking the river and mountains.

Pros: very large room, very large bathroom and a balcony with a lovely view. Centrally located yet quiet and close to the river, free wifi and breakfast. All staff we encountered were friendly although some issues with English communication

Cons: there are two reception areas - one down a driveway and one on the main street. We didn't know about the one on the main street so waited at the one down the driveway for eternity before someone showed up. Better signage would help. Free wifi, but the signal is not strong, breakfast is pretty 'basic' and the towels have seen better days.

Overall value for money score - 8/10. For $26 a night for a large double its fantastic value for money. You kind of forgo any right to complain at that price !

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room on the corner overlooking the river. You wont regret it !

Pros: great views from top floor, nice big room, tv, fridge, friendly staff, good location far from noise but easy walking distance

Cons: dirty (lots of ants everywhere)

average: breakfast

conclusion: top floor rooms are a bargain if you can handle some grime in the corridors

We spent four nights at this hotel. The rooms were basic, but huge and the spectacular views were free. Position is just far enough away from the hustle of the town centre. The rooms were clean and serviced every day. Good quality beds and a generous balcony. Breakfast was basic, but there was a good choice. Service from the staff impressed us for the price we paid - overall great value. Bookings for local attractions can be made at reception, and currency exchange can be done. Bathrooms were basic, but clean - everything worked ! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor in building B provided peace and quiet and a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains a...

This hotel was clean and tidy with good sized rooms. Our room had a lovely balcony and looked out to the river and mountains. Lovely spot to watch the sunset. It was away from noisy bars etc but close enough to walk to dinner and sights. Staff were helpful and breakfast was excellent and included.
