Very basic and quite clean. Bed was large but hard, which seems to be the norm, but for $15/night and the location we were relieved to find this place straight away. There is quite a lot of music from nearby bars but it didn't worry us too much (earplugs for me and fan on drowned out he sounds). It was a good base point for all things adventurous. The talking birds are a big hit. After reading the bad reviews of this hotel all we can say is... follow the rules, hand the key back to reception as they request and avoid the issues.

I was surprised this place has only got 3/5 rating. It is atleast worth a 4 out of 5. We paid 100,000 and stayed 2 nights we got a twin room on the top floor and had amazing views of the limestone karsts and the river below. The fan didn't work at first but the man fixed it within 10 mins. The bed sheets were slightly stained but they were not dirty. The shower was good and hot and we got a tv aswell. We thought the music next door was loud but it seemed to stop just after we got in about 11ish. They had 2 birds that talked to us and we had lots of laughs, I'm surprised that there not a you tube sensation lol. Overall good stay, didn't really deal much with the staff so unsure about all the reviews about rude and aggressive staff.

Settled here for 100,000 kip a night, for two nights. For that price we had a fan-room with a balcony facing the river - great view for sunset. Just a few doors down from the infamous bucket bar. Room was good until we found the bed had dirty sheets (with neon paint all over them) and when we asked for new ones, the lady scoffed at me and just handed me an unfolded pile of new sheets to change myself. She also booked our bus tickets, and her driver picked us up extremely late and we nearly missed our bus and got stuck with awful seats in the back.

Pros: nice view on balcony
Cons: staff, wifi in lobby only
Overall: decent but i'm sure you can find something better
Tips: No matter where you go in Vang Vieng expect to treated like a deviant, due to all the drugged out tubers. Have fun but always be respectful.

A bunch of friends and I went to stay at the Grandview Guesthouse. It seemed night because it was big and the owner seemed nice, BUT that soon changed.

After we misplaced our key to our room, he pulled a knife waving it at our friends. Over a misplaced key! He went crazy, threatening us and our friends. Took our passports and extorted us, making us pay for them back in the range of thousands of American dollars.

Be careful! Do not stay here. He also owns the Domo guesthouse next door.

Please be careful and stay somewhere else.

This hotel would be ok if it wasnt for the staff! The staff were not to be trusted and when you have a problem they dismiss it, also while we stayed the room was never cleaned in 4 nights which wasnt a massive problem but when we ran out of toilet paper and we asked at receptionbfor another the man behind the counter said i had to pay for one, and i said we was stopping there he said they were expensive, never heard anything so ridiculous when we payed to stop there. So i asked to see his manager and he then got aggresive and said he was going to phone the police because he had a friend in the police! OVER A TOILET ROLL!! Also the shower in the room hardly worked and was not hot!!! And leaked!! And early in the morning they decided to do contruction work including cutting metal with an angle grinder right next to our window!!!!! DO NOT STOP HERE!!!!! Also do not book any trips or buses through them, they are NOT to be trusted!!
