We picked this hotel by walking around and stayed 3 nights. It was a great catch at 45$ per night for a room one floor up with a balcony and with a view to the Mekong, very well located, very central. The service was limited, but it was quite clean and there was always someone on duty to help if... More

This is a very basic hotel. The furnshing is sparse (as is the lighting in the rooms). They are fairly clean. We got a room facing the Mekong but the view was not very special. Breakfast is at a nearby cafe but very boring food and lacking variety. The staff are very slow and seem very confused. The locating is... More

We stayed at this hotel in October for 3 nights. The hotel is very well located on the street corner on the river, only a short walk to the centre of town. The rooms are great for the price and very comfortable. The rooms a have a fridge and are well air conditioned. it was 35 degrees every day during... More

Very impersonal reception, uneven bed and for USD$45 a night there are better deals else where. Location wise is good though. The rooms have verandah but the view is not scenic except the street. So in terms of value, I would rate them as average. Breakfast is provided at a cafe nearby. My future visit will be else where.

Came for 5 days and stayed for 10. We got a large room top floor overlooking the Mekong for $35usd at nite, the price drops to this after 6.30pm. Staff very friendly and helpful, great shower and bathroom, next door can get your laundry done for 10,000k per kilo.

Situated right on the riverside and close to cafes. Staff are helpful, internet available free in lobby. Breakfast is via a voucher redeemed up the road at a little cafe. Just a bit further up road is the spot to observe or take part in the daily early morning alms giving parade with at least a 100 monks. Recommend the... More

A good, simple and clean hotel, along the street that follows the Mekong river. You can have your breakfast in a "Cafe" just on the corner.

Stayed here for five nights during a very quiet week in Luang Prabang. The place and the rooms look amazing and are very clean. Bathroom was great, although the shower lacked pressure. Staff was friendly and helpful. WiFi was present but extremely slow Good place to stay if you want to spend the money (50$ a night)

Stayed here recently over Lao New Year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay by the Mekong in Luang Prabang. Ted Dorotheos Tzovaras

This is indeed a riverside hotel, but it also sits across from a spot where a lot of tourists seem to congregate at night and drink and make a lot of noise. During the day, the tuk tuk drivers seem to hang out and make a lot of noise as well. We asked reception to try to deal with the... More
