The original guest house we wanted was fully booked and settled on this as was rushed in booking. Stairs up to rooms 301.... are like climbing a mountain. The door is secured by a padlock when you go out, guess that means no one is getting in. The power situation is bordering on illegal even for SEA terms. The beds...

Basic problem: Champa Lao and Champalao the villa are two different hotels in close proximity on the same street. Reviews of each are conflated in the Trip Advisor listings, so it is conceivable and likely that you will (as we were) be deluded in your expectations. I think this is a perfectly okay little place to crash if the guest...

The price was high for a simple room with ac and a rather basic bathroom. supposed to be budget I think but more like mid-range without the mid range features The communal areas were pleasant, sitting in the garden to do work on the internet was good. Internet does not work well / at all in most rooms. The staff...

This accomodation is easy to walk to find food, attractive sightseeing place and tour agency. House decoration with original style I feel like stay at home. There is coffee shop and breakfast next to house that I can enjoy eating there. The owner and staff are friendly to give me advice about transportation back to Thailand. This trip was impressive.

WARNING! DO NOT BOOK THIS GUESTHOUSE I booked here and they had deliberately overbooked and put us in a hotel across the road that was dreadful, and having looked it up was far cheaper than champalao. Complained to the manager and was told that couldn't refund as we'd already stayed in the room across the road. No staff outside of...

My boyfriend and I had booked 3 nights in Champalao The Villa approximately 5 months before our trip. We chose this guest house based on its good ratings on Booking.com. Once we arrived, we were told that Champalao was fully booked and consequently we were given a room in a different guesthouse on the other side of the road. The...

This is the 2nd time staying here. Last September, it is the first trip in Vang Vieng. I stayed here for 2 nights. It make good impression for me. Staff and owner are helpful and friendly.

Managed to book the 4-br villa amongst my friends for a good price - <SGD30 pp. The "villa" is essentially a private space with 4-br and a common space with hammocks, benches and coffee table to hang out with friends. Lovely space. It's really going back to basics in a wooden lodge, with just the basic necessities (well ok, soap,...

For me the room is clean enough. I love the small garden and the cafe. It's lovely with some bookshelf that you can enjoy reading while sipping your favorite drink. The location is quite good because it's 5 minutes walking to the town where you can find Lao foods and some souvenir at the local market. What I love the...
