บรรยากาศดี แต่การเข้าถึงค่อนข้างลำบากนิดนึงค่ะ It's really good location of relaxing place for our trip in Wang Wieng but the accessment is too difficult and didn't get any help from staffs when we're checking in. The price we booked was included B/F, but actually you could find food very easy nearby this place. Another point is that you couldn't get good connection even... More

River View Bungalows is located on the Nam Song river side. Resort is surrounded by the mountains, and also is on the centre of Vengvieng city. This one is the best point that I choose to stay here. The bad thing is that any body came to the resort for seeing view point. It made us no privacy. The room... More

Hotel is river view the best location.You can walk to the city center in 5 minutes. Breakfast is neutral.Hotel's wifi and room is ok. The bad thing is other people who is not hotel guest can go to hotel so not private and feel awkward some time.Over all I recommend this hotel for who would like the best location.

We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 4. These accommodations can be reached by footbridges from the centre of town. Even though it's close to everything, it's very quiet during the day and night with direct river views. Good service as well as an on site restaurant right next to the river.

This was our 4th time staying at River View Bungalows. I always enjoy staying here because the bungalows we get are right on the river and look out at the mountains. The bars can be noisy if you stay on the river but I sleep through it fine. Service has gone down a little bit since the town has grown... More

Amazing place , very nearby to street food , money changers , marts, Restaurent , pubs , cafes etc . Food is good but what's best is the view of the river and the mountain . It's really breathtaking . You have to cross a small bridge to get to the place.

The location is great. You will see river view from your windows. I can sit all day at my terrace for my relaxing. Food is delicious especially Laos food. Not much for green from trees here, just river view is the best. Staff is OK. WiFi will be available at the restaurant and your room.
