We stayed at the new Elephant Crossing Hotel (actually it was still being finished outside when we stayed) for one night as part of an organised tour. The hotel is excellent in every respect. The room we had was spacious with a lovely balcony and very efficient air con overlooking the river. There's an excellent pool and a super terrace again overlooking the river. Vang Vieng is a strange place that seems to have grown too quickly (the Hotel brochure said that 10 years ago there were 2 Guest Houses in the town now there are over 100) with only backpacker Guest houses and poor quality eateries; we also noticed quite a lot of noise in the town on the night from 'night clubs' although the Hotel double glazing meant this didn't stop us getting a good nights sleep. The shower in the bathroom was excellent although we (and others in our group) found the spray had a tenancy to spread across the floor into the bathroom entrance- perhaps longer shower curtains could help. Unfortunately one of our group broke her arm tripping over the slight step into the bathroom, personally we didn't find this a problem. One slight problem was that staff on reception didn't spak hardly any English at all.
