The owners of Saynamkhan Hotel have done a great job running this small hotel on the Khan River in historic Luang Prabang. You will often see them at the front desk or overseeing breakfast to make sure of the quality and hospitality provided. They are happy to give recommendations for dining and activities. The rooms are in 2 buildings, a... More

I just finished staying 5 nights here. I liked the location the best…overlooking the Nam Khan River, a 2-minute walk to the main street in LP and to Joma's bakery along the river, and near Phousi Mtn. I probably stayed in the cheapest room in the hotel overlooking a side street. The room was clean and big enough with a... More

They gave us a special price since we stayed a while, upgraded our room to river view and kept it for... More

The location is perfect, it is within walking distance to everything. The Hotel has much charm, but just the bare minimum of essentials. The breakfast was shockingly meager but eating it on the veranda while watching the monks walk by...lets you almost forget about it. The rooms in the newer part are smaller than those in the wooden house. The... More

I was not overly impressed by this hotel. The staff didn't seem to care whether you were there or not. The hotel had a nice restaurant, yet the morning coffee was not hot and the breakfasts were very boring. The omelets consisted of eggs and nothing else. They provided a kettle in the rooms, but no coffee and only water... More

I booked a room with a balcony but it was really just a patio with views of the trees separating the hotel from the road. It was OK but not really worth it. I was in the older part of the hotel and I suspect the newer part is better. The room was OK but walls thin and near a... More

On the bank of the Nam Khan river and overlooking the bamboo bridge [dry season only]. We had a superior room right on the corner of two roads and with double glazing the room was not noisy at night. No safety deposit box is a pain! The free WIFI didn't work one day so we complained. It was back and... More

If you can definitely get the river view with balcony at the bottom. We only booked 2 nights but ended up staying 4 and changed to the balcony the last 2 nights. Far better, a lot more natural light as the lead in is pretty dark. If anything stay here for the location! The rooms and clean and comfortable. The... More

We spent 2 nights in Luang Prabang and this was a great place to stay. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. Great location and friendly staff. Only downside was the rooster nearby which started crowing around 5am.
