We arrived at vang vieng bus station in torrential rain so picked a hotel from the lonely planet. Thavisouk sounded great in the book and although slightly more than we would usually pay we didn't want to walk around in the rain looking for somewhere. We were dropped at 'thavisouk hotel and resort' which is slightly out of town and...

The sheets had holes and stains of all colors. We even found a worm in our bed. When we asked for a new bedsheet we were told they ran out. When I insisted on a new sheet they asked to check. They never answered. In the end i just slept without sheets. The ceiling in the bathroom was leaking brown...

We stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas 2012, I booked through booking.com in a rush as we were worried about availability over the Christmas period. I then read through the reviews on here and was left very confused as there are VERY different views. The problem seems to be there are 3 hotels/guest-houses in the area with similar/the same...

They tried to clean it, but it didn't help too much. Not all of the staffs can speak english, just one of two of them. After cameback from...

I decided to tay at this hotel however I got a bungalow (not the main hotel which looks a lot nicer). The bungalow was terrible, it was dirty and not in the slightest bit comfortable, It could do with a proper clean. The mattress even felt damp, the bathroom was disgusting, the power to the fridge didn't work and the...

We booked this hotel as it was abit out of the main town to be away from the standard craziness of Vang Vieng. The room was spacious and clean with a nice bathroom. The shower only went half way up the wall so you ha to crouch in the bath if you want a shower. We had a balcony out...

I stayed here in August last year and it was a great hotel. The room was very comfortable and clean. It is within walking distance of the town area and many other attractions. One must understand that we are travelling to Laos, a land where not many have been before, so for whatever's worth, I really think that the place...

We stayed here because the bus dropped us off here and as we were only staying 1 night we didn't want to waste time looking around. Big mistake this place is like staying in a bus station, big buses dropping off large groups of asian package tourists who delight in nightly karaoke at the restaurant which is about 1 meter...
