Everything was good. The owner will do everything so his guests enjoy a nice time. It's beside the Mekong River and near of everything. The decoration it's charming, the bed are great, and the sheets are very high quality. There's no breakfast, but right in front of this guesthouse has a lot of very good places to have breakfast with... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse. The location is just a 5 minute walk from the central street and night market area, and right next to the Mekong. The man who sits at the front is very friendly and welcoming and keen to make you feel at home, telling us of things to do in Luang Prabang and Showing... More

We stumbled across this guest house after hours of searching for a space that accommodates the four of us. It is super clean, central, safe and the host, the brother of the owner, is really sweet and speaks good English. We paid $24 for two rooms on the ground floor, quite a nice surprise in Luang Prabang. We stayed on... More

This guesthouse is simple but very sweet, and right in the middle of the old town. The price was good, the breakfast (at a nearby cafe) good, the wifi decent and the water hot! Definitely better to stay in this place more centrally than a posher hotel further away!

We stayed here on the second part of our trip in Luang Prabang - the town is really peaceful and sleepy and this friendly guessthouse slots into it perfectly. With only 5 rooms it is very small but value for money and in a great location. it is located right next to the river and up a little side street,... More

my friend and i were very excited to find this place! cheap and simple family run establishment. UNFORTUNATELY on our second day there, i accidentally left money in the room. it was inside a bag in our locked room (i know this is not a smart travel move, but it was my birthday and i was feeling very trusting). however,...

I'm not really sure what all the fuss is about with this place. It's a small dark-wood guesthouse - rooms at the back must be very dark (I had the 'light' room #1). They could certainly put more furniture into these upstairs rooms as they are large but only contain a bed and a couple of side tables. Because there's... More

Booked one night here on a whim and ended up staying for 5, what a lovely guest house! Tucked away down a quiet lane near the river, we didn't see any other tourists while we were there. It seems to be at the opposite end of town from the very cheap backpacker places, so if you have had enough of... More

This guest house is very good value for the money. We were in room 2 upstairs and it is a lovely big room with a double bed and a single bed, a fridge and plenty of hanging space. The room is however, quite dark. It also was very hot when we arrived and the aircon struggles to keep it cool.... More

Tucked in an alley between the Mekong and Wat Nong, this small guesthouse is reasonably priced ($15, $18 with breakfast) and in a quiet location that feels like a little neighborhood. I stayed in Room #1, which has several windows to help the darkness of the room (I have a feeling the rooms are dark here; the upstairs rooms are... More
