The Elephant Crossing Hotel, Vang Vieng
Not sure if it was a glitch or mine - anyhow we booked 2 different hotels for the same night. When we showed up to check in to Elephant Crossing - they said we had a no show yesterday. Nothing they can do now. My girlfriend was sick and we asked them to try to help us, as this was an obvious error in booking. Nope. Bye bye.

Amazing View of River
Absolutely stunning river view from the balcony! Restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. Breakfast was great. Cooked to order eggs, good variety of fruit, many dishes in the buffet. Staff was very helpful.

Absolutely Amazing View
The view of the river from the balcony on the upper floor rooms is absolutely amazing. You can spend hours just watching... especially the lanterns launched from the riverbank. Breakfasts are great. We really enjoyed our stay.

Hotel with stunning view
I loved the “Elephant Crossing” when we stayed there 6/7 years ago. It had a stunning magical feeling. Although it’s different now, it still has a wonderful view of the amazing karsts and river. Unfortunately we had heavy rain so the karsts disappeared for part of our stay. Vang Vieng has changed the excessive backpacking era has gone however in its place there is adventure tourism and a lot more development which has destroyed the calm of the area near the river. The Elephant Crossing has most amenities as well as a stunning view. Breakfast was good, WiFi in our room was flacky but ok in reception area. They don’t have a pool but you can use the pool at their sister hotel “ The Silver Naga” for a small fee. We stayed at “The Silver Naga” for one night as the “Elephant Crossing” was full up, it is more expensive and except for the pool in my view not worth the extra.
