Les Jardine de Vang Vieng: Nice Riverside Accommodation

The riverside bungalows here are superb and relatively new. The staff are friendly. Although it may be a bit more expensive than accommodation in town, its definitely worth it for the great views of sunset, the Nam Song River and the surrounding karst landscapes. The staff there can also arranged for kayaking tours and help you get the bus tickets to Vientiane and Luang Prabang etc.

US$5 or 50,000 KIP per pax.

Riverside Bungalows: Amazing views from your Balcony

There are about 22 bungalows spaced out over a beautiful garden. From our balcony we can see the cliffs and the river. Beautiful butterlies with amazing colour are plentiful. We are in the top end bungalow at $10 a night with double bed, air con and fan and attached bathroom. The bungalows are fairly spacious and clean. The reception will lock your valubles away for you. You can also arrange tubing and your VIP bus from here.

Double fan bungalow is 6.60$.

I only wish I had taken a photo. I was going to, but kept putting off and then it rained!

Clean bungalow with amazing views, just away from the main roads so it is very peaceful.

Bungalows Riverside (?): away from the main road

Away from the center, which is pretty noisy. This is about 10 to 15mins walk along some dusty tracks, but well signposted. The A/C wooden bungalows have hot showers and a fantastic view of the river and carsts.

Les Jardins Organique: Nice huts, extreme hard beds

After we'd arrived in Vang Vieng, it gave us trouble to find 2 rooms (we're a family with 3 children) Finally we arrived at Les Jardins Organique. The huts looked nice, but they only had one hut with one room available for us. We decided to take it, as it looked rather nice. They placed a big double matrass on the ground for the kids. Later on we found out, that these beds were the worst ones we ever had on our 6-week trip through Thailand and Laos. They were extremely hard, our backs hurt after just one night.
So we decided to move to next door (Villa Nam Song) and pay the extra money for a good night rest.
The bungalow huts of Les Jardins Organique are situated in a lovely garden near the Nam Song River. You have a nice vieuw on the mountains, the river and the tollbridge.
We payed 10$ (8$ for the bungalow hut and 2$ for the big matrass

Very nice bungalows, but quite umcomfortable!
Lovely garden and nice vieuw

Viengchaleune GH: Accomodation near river..

You can get your accomodation near the river. However I dont think there is anything very special about it except most of the guesthouse near river are in chalet type.

The guesthouses near river, of course will be more expensive than those in the village.

I stayed in Viengchaleune GH which I think is a good one, 3USD with an attached bathroom. The only disadvantage is the distance from the GH to the other end, where night lifes hold is around 5-10 minutes walk. It could be a little bit inconvenient at night.

Bungalows Riverside (?): breakfast in the sun

Had breakfast outside, with nice views of the carsts. Breakfast was not the best, eg. they had run out of butter, toast and jam!! But with these views, and the friendly staff it was OK.

Guesthouses

Most of the guesthouses in town are modern places that are cheap and very clean. I have been there twice and both times i ws very happy with the accomodation. I paid about $4 for a single room and $6 for a twin (between 2) with bathroom and fan.

Bungalows Riverside (?): the view in the morning

It was very chilly in the morning, and the blanket wasn't enough. I think thermals would have come in handy! But the view was stunning.

Malany Villa: Malany, affordable and friendly

When we re-visited VV with my parents, we took rooms in Malany guesthouse - quite a large place, two buildings in fact in the centre by the main road. It's not the cheapest place but it is still very affordable: AC room with private bathroom cost 120 000 KIP, those without AC are for 80 000 KIP, all with hot shower and clean (in 2009) - if you're not there in hottest months of a year, you most probably won't need AC anyway - a good way to save few thousands KIP. Staff is very friendly and helpful, almost everybody can speak English. In case you come by car there's also a parking lot by the GH.

Unfortunatelly, that price won't include breakfast. For delicious local food you'll have to try one of many restaurants of food stalls which are especially good in preparing fresh fish and vegetables.

Dokkhoun 2 guesthouse: by the airfiled

This is newer place than DK 1 and higher with more rooms. It's very clean and affordable and it's possible to negotiate a price if you stay longer than 3 days. Normally they charge 60 000 KIP for a room with fan and double bed and hot shower. There's also satelite TV in rooms or AC. Beds are quite comfortably and rooms have large windows with screens. Older part of the same compound has little bit smaller rooms without TV but it's ok for a night or two. These are cheaper and have view to the neighbour's yard. Staff is helpful and friendly; they are willing to do room service if you ask by the reception.
Place seems to be popular with Lao students groups on their trips.

You can enjoy views over the air strip from common balcony. It's quite nice there, quiet when there aren't too many guests in the place. more quiet than guesthouses in town.

PANS PLACE: FORGET IT !!!

We decided to stay here as it was given quite a good write-up in the guide book, so we checked in as soon as we arrived. We paid for a private bathroom with hot shower, so after relaxing for an hour or so after our trip from Vientiane i decided to take a shower. Standing naked in the shower no water was forthcoming, let alone hot water. So i complained at reception and they sais i could take a shower downstairs. The next morning there was still no water, and again i was informed i could take a shower elsewhere, at which i informed them i would check out, why should i pay for a private bathroom with no water. The girl at reception said this was always a problem with the upstairs rooms. During the night we were woken up by noisy guests returning from a drinking spree.They also had an internet cafe which informed us that the price was 300 kip a minute, same all over town, but if you bought a card for two hours they would only charge 200 kip a minute. However although several places in town charged 300 kip it was not too diffivult to locate a place for 200 kip. I guess this place made its name a few years ago, but is a bit run down and takes advantage of the travelers. BEST TO AVOID THIS PLACE!!!

Dok Koun 1 GH: Budget accomodation

This GH charges $US6 for a twin with private bath and fan. The rooms were clean but basic. We didnt last 1 night as we found the noise from surrounding bars and restaurants just too much.
We paid our money and left the staff were fine, we had already put our washing in so we agreed to pick it up the next day. They are very trusting we never paid and considering we had been travelling a bit our clothes were not exactly anything we couldent live without!! The same with the room we never filled any paperwork out they just gave us a key we paid when we left. I suppose if we were less honest we could of just left without even telling the staff.
They also have a travel agency which assisted us with travel arrangements when we wanted to move on.

The staff obvioulsy have a sense of humour whenever we walked past them they always asked us if we needed a room!!!
If you are young or young at heart and intend to spend most of your time out this GH will be okay for you but if you want a nights sleep without the noise forget it.
I have ticked somewhat unsatisfied only because of the noise factor.
Can't remember the the exact location but I know it was off the main drag.

Banana Bungalows: peaceful place

We stayed 3 days at this place, which is located just across the river passing by the small bridge. The staff were friendly and the compound consisted of a grassy area with perhaps twenty bungalows situated around the boundary. We had a bungalow with hot shower and balcony for70,000 kip but basic bamboo bungalows were available for 30,000 kip. New bungalows were being constructed. The owner also had a restaurant across the bridge where guests would get a free coffee with their breakfast, or a free bucket with their supper. Very peaceful setting and quiet at night
