I stayed at the Phousi with a group of students. The guesthouse was chosen for its location, next to the old palace, now national museum, and the block of restaurants in the city center. Apparently, this once family-owned business has been sold to Chinese investors. The rooms are not well maintained. When I turned on the air conditioner, water poured... More

Phous Si Guesthouse is a remarkable corner of history across from Luang Prabang's Royal Palace and National Museum. The staff are some of the most warm, welcoming and professional of the places I've stayed in Laos and Southeast Asia. They treat guests as family in their laid-back Laos style.. If you've any questions or concerns, staff and the proprietor Ms.... More

The best feature of the Phouse Guest House is its convenient location. Do not confuse it with the big Phousi Hotel nearby. Just across the street is the National Museum. Around the corner is the night market and also the Mekong River, where there are many restaurants overlooking the river. Other than that, the Phousi is pretty basic. There is... More

I brought a large group of tourists to this hotel and upon arrival dropped off my laundry. When I picked it up the next day there were 2 shirts missing. There only response to this was, "We don't know where they are." Not "sorry" or "we apologize for this." It was like they couldn't care less. When asked if they... More

stayed there for a night with my sister and mom. the room was nice and clean, the location is very convenient as it is in the middle of everything (a block away from Khong River and the night market, right across from the national museum and mount Phousi). breakfast was really yummy; ordered rice soup (porridge) with eggs and it...

Staff was friendly and helpfull, the room was very nice and clean, breakfast was good. The building itself was very beautiful with stairs and floors of wood, would definitly stay again.

strange service, feel like you are imposing - not very welcoming. Restaurant very overpriced. Rooms ok but better value available elsewhere.

We had dinner here on our first night. The menu had lots of choice including a varied vegetarian selection. The food was good, the service friendly and the glass of wine although small was good and the cheapest in Luang Prabang. We didn't stay here but we picked up a card as we will probably stay here when we next... More

We checked several guesthouses in LP and this was the best we found for that budget (9 euro for 2 persons, privat bathroom). The staff is friendly. We left our big backpacks while we went to Ngoi Kieuw for 2 nights and found our bags and all our bellongings back.
