Stayed at the Elephants Crossing mainly due to lack of alternatives. Read a review about the rudeness of staff and dismissed it, but when we arrived the receptionist was actually that rude. We checked in and asked to book a Bus ticket as the sign advertised that the hotel could do this. She said no not today come back tomorrow. We straight away went to town and got one at a travel agent.
The room and bed were fine and clean. The bathroom was terrible with bare piped taped up with electrically tape and not clean at all.
Breakfast was good and the view of the river and mountains are awesome.
TIP: Vang Vieng is a backpacker party town and the music is pumping till way into the early hours and can be heard anywhere.
The place next door to the Elephant looked nicer.
