This hotel is situated in the most perfect spot with amazing views of the river in Vang Vieng. It is close by to everything and the hotel bar and restaurant is an ideal spot to sit and watch the sunset.

Right by the river with a beautiful restaurant terasse, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Staff is really helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good. The hotel is located on a main quiet street really close from all the restaurants. Would definitely come back.

We had a wonderful time at this hotel. Located right on the river you can eat breakfast with the mountains in the background and have a drink in the evening as the sun goes down over the water. Our room had a balcony with fantastic views and the staff were friendly and helpful, able to organise day trips for us... More

This hotel is quite basic but makes up for that with it's great location on the river. The restaurant/ Breakfast area has wonderful views over the river to the mountains. This hotel supports the local community, providing employment and supporting education for the local people who work at the hotel. It was wonderful to sit and have breakfast looking at... More

We didn't stay here, but the staff seemed quite happy to serve a couple of 'drop ins' for happy hour cocktails and a curry on the terrace. We had a very enjoyable experience and from this perspective alone the serenity and peaceful early evening river scene with the silhouetted towering cliffs above would be hard to beat.

The glossy photos were taken some years ago. The rooms we stayed in, 2 because we insisted on a change, are tired, dirty and on the 1st night downright dangerous. Management did not appear to care about their guests or their concerns. The only redeeming feature, hence the 2 mark, is the lovely terrace, breakfast and the dinner we enjoyed... More

It's quite a journey to get to Vang Vieng but the view is simply breathtaking, and being able to soak it all in, in the comfort of our room's balcony makes it all worth it. Room's a little old, bathroom especially, but it's alright, cause this is not a trip about luxury and fancy things.

Stayed there with two friends for a couple of nights and it was actually the first time on our journey that we've got a very nice triple room with a large bathroom!

This hotel has a great location in Vang Vieng. It is right on the river. All the rooms face it and its bar and restaurant is right on the river too. The views are fabulous. Vang Vieng is a beautiful part of the world and this hotel takes full advantage of that. The rooms above ground floor all have balconies... More
