Malany Villa 1

Centrally located budget accommodation

More on Vang Vieng

Malany Villa 1 is a budget hotel located on the main road smack dab in the middle of town.

Travelfish says:

Ignore the sullen unfriendly reception because it’s great value at a central location. The very big rooms are clean, and come with old cable TVs, windows, WiFi, bedside table, mirror, springy beds with clean threadbare sheets and ensuite hot water bathroom. Most budget travellers will find the rooms here more than acceptable especially when you can throw air-con into the equation for so little extra. Its smaller sister hotel, confusingly named Malany Villa, is just across the street, less than 100 metres away beside Gary’s Irish Bar. It offers similar rooms for the same price.
