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

We stayed in this charming guest house for a total of 5 nights and were very satisfied with everything. Souk Lan Xang is a small family run guest house with very friendly and competent service. There was always at least one person present who spoke good English, so communication was never an issue. Our room was very clean and cleaned... More

We booked Souk Lan Xang in Luang Prabang to celebrate Lao New Year. The location of the guesthouse was great. It is difficult to find, only a small sign points you down the alleyway to the entrance. The rooms are large with air con and hot water. The staff is friendly but doesn't speak English very well at all, so... More
