We stayed at Phoomchai for a week and loved it. The huts are really cosy and have a great deck out front that you can relax on. The guy running the place is super friendly and helped us out with bus tickets, a well-priced tuk tuk to the Blue Lagoon and other info about stuff to do in Vang Vieng.... More

We stayed 3 nights here and chanced walking up as it was low season. Thankfully this worked as we got 20k KIP knocked off the online price for an A/C bungalow. I'd been in this town many years ago before and a tubing hangover is best undertaken with the benefit of air conditioning. Such is the heat at this time... More

Most of the rooms were bamboo style huts on stilts. We had a little porch at the front where we could chill which was nice. The owner was a very cheerful chap. He was always very happy to help with anything, even willing to take you into town to pick up a baguette. There was a little noise however from... More

I was given a room without a manual lock (it only had the lock on the door knob), so I requested for one with double locks. The staff was nice enough to fix a manual lock on the room beside, and he gave me that room instead. I asked if they had a room further in (my room was right... More

He is so kind, friendly and is always available if you need anything. He always welcomes you with a smile when you arrive... More

We had a really nice stay! The room is small but really clean and they have a veranda with table and two chairs. The owner was very friendly all the time. We got clean towels and he even lented us a dry bag for tubing.

Basic place with good wifi. Guesthouse is located in the outskirts of the city (no more 10 minwalking to main área of restaurants and bars. The área is quiet which is a plus in Vang Vieng. The place is managed by a guy who tries to help you, bike rentals, tickets, sightseeing. For a couples of nights is fine.
