Decent in town option
A hop skip and a jump from Mai Chau lodge and the roadway to Poom village, Valley View is a cheaper alternative to the lodge for those not bothered about a pool, spa and fancy restaurant.
All eight bedrooms have great views across the valley – opt for a higher room for better views, as long as you don't mind the stairs as there's no elevator – and although lacking in character rooms are spacious, smartly decorated with light wood furnishings and equipped with TVs and air-con. Bathrooms come with good sized shower cubicles and modern fittings. Breakfast and other meals can be taken in the open air restaurant on the ground floor.
