The guesthouse is in a great location on the bank of the river, about 5 minutes walk away from the bar/restaurant scene. We paid 50,000 kip per night (approximately $6.50), which you pay for upfront. This room was was clean and tidy although a little cramped. The fan worked well (no need for A/C). Was had a small issue with...

The owners of Mesah View are amazing! They made every effort to make us comfortable during our stay!! They allowed us to prepare our own food in their kitchen when we are tired of eating out. They shared their alcohol with us for a casual drink outside and told us the best places to eat around town. It's far enough...

Great location -- a 5-minute walk from town so you get all the conveniences without the noise and the crowd. Because Mesah View is perched by the Nam Song river, we got to enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the balcony of the guesthouse, at a fraction of the price you'll pay at a nearby villa. Mathias and his staff were...

First off, I did not stay at Mesah View Guesthouse. While I was in Vang Vieng, I needed to take a time out from outdoor trekking and climbing to get some work done. My hotel's WiFi wasn't cutting it, but another traveler the previous night had told me that Mesah had great internet. I headed down the street to find...

Everything that you could ask for backpacking it. Cheap price, clean safe premises, helpful staff and a river view to die for (try to get the river view rooms) Air con for an additional not-very-much. A little bit out of the main drag ( 7 minute walk) but then you probably need it, you've been traveling for awhile and you're...

Great to hear that you had a good time. Just to let the world know that Mesah View Guest House is now under new management, Mathias is now the manager, so the contact details have changed.... The great views over the river will remain the same, and I am sure Mathias will make you as welcome as Loay did. This...

In terms of money/value Mesah is not unlike many other places around. Location is good, not in the centre of the town, but not too far away to make getting anywhere a hassle. You will not be hearing music from bars. Rooms are not exactly clean. I was sharing mine with spiders and their webs in the corners, however we...

Hi Alex. Firstly thanks for staying at Mesah View and for taking time to write a review. As I put in response to a previous review, Loay and Phai do not own the guesthouse but lease it, and cant do too much (as in stained walls) as it is leased a year at a time. They spent a lot of...

Glad you had such a good time! This is Arthur here, Loay's Australian friend who made the website for him! Glad to have clarified the issue that Loay will provide a pick up service provided he knows which bus company you are with as they each stop at different places around town. The previous review referred to insects. The open...

The mosquito net in the room was tied up with a huge cockroach inside. I wonder whether the bed was not cleaned, or the net had a huge hole? We moved rooms, the bed sheets were really stained with big oil patches which smelt brand new so the sheets had definitely not been changed. The pillow cases had numerous hairs....
