Nice little hotel with beautiful rooms and balconies. Rooms even have air conditioning, if it works. In our room it didn't work for two days, on the second day they finally repaired it. We were the only guests because the staff had a problem with the housekeeping which meant that none of the rooms got cleaned and they turned down... More

We ended up staying four night in their biggest room. The room was one of the best off our whole trip in Laos. A big room, with large, comfortable bed, free water, wifi, a/c, balcony. Nicely furnished also, but a bit too dark (strangely, a problem we frequently encountered on our trip). The bathroom was big, with a good shower... More

Room was lovely. Stayed there for 3 nights. Bathroom could be better maintained. There was a slight stench in the bathroom but the 2 exhaust fans (one in the bathroom and one in the room) minimize the stench. Shower head was broken and I couldn't turn on the shower tap too much otherwise the entire bathroom would be wet. Breakfast... More

Although this hotel has potential and some good features (friendly staff, ample size rooms, good breakfast) its positives are outweighed by the lack of management and some basic features that a good hotel room should have. The bathroom in our room had a shower and a toilet with no division so the entire bathroom floor would got soaked every morning... More

We used this lovely hotel as a base for a week's stay in Luang Prabang, leaving to go out on trekking and kayaking trips. The rooms were very nice. Large comfy beds, good bathroom and most have balcony. For $20 we had a really nice room. Staff were very friendly and helpful - though the late night staff could not... More

This hotel is really clean, had very friendly staff, and free internet access in lobby. The location was perfect--right by great little restaurants up the street and across from a huge temple. The room was clean, with hot showers and air conditioning. What really made this hotel was its staff... Especially its night manager, who speaks English, Thai, and is... More

Very nicely decorated rooms but also very dark. One girl on the front desk spoke very good English and seemed very nice. Roadside rooms have a nice balcony overlooking the main road but this made it very noisy in the morning with motorbikes zooming past, and at night a bar was playing loud music right next door. Hot water was... More

Nice hotel about the equivalent of $12. The one girl there in the morning was very sweet and spoke great English. The other girls did not speak as well but it was never a problem and it was something we had gotten used to after travelling around SE Asia. The rooms are very charming, with nice décor. The patio out... More
