Stayed here whilst travelling a few months in Asia. It's a beautiful town, the location is idyllic you are just down the road from one of the 'must see' wats, lovely cafés bars and a wonderful relaxing amazing place. The staff here were brilliant, there was money exchange, you could book onward travel and breakfast was served on the terrace... More

We were fortunate to stay at Villa Somphong for a week in December, 2013. The staff were all particularly friendly and caring. The rooms were very clean and tasteful. We enjoyed the view of the street and river from the verandah. Breakfasts were most enjoyable, being served on the banks of the river. The hotel is in a very quiet... More

Nice room with verandah. Bed ok compared with others in asia. Staff/owner very helpful when any enquiries made. Breakfast very basic. Only western. Quite part of town, but not far to walk to get to busy area.

Agree with the other reviews here. Good, basic quality in the best location away from the noise and bustle of the main 'shopping/eating' area of Sisivangvong, which is just a short walk away. There are two properties side by side (photos show the smarter, larger option) and we were,initially, a little disappointed to find ourselves in the older, smaller property... More

The end of the peninsular, which is where Villa Somphong is located, is quiet, but Somphong is just up the road from Tamarind Restaurant (yum!) and just around the corner from the start of the general store/bar/restaurant/retail shop strip that is Th. Sakkarinh/Sisavangvong. It's also only a couple of minutes' stroll to the lovely little bamboo bridge which crosses the... More

Some rooms are better than others. In building with reception, you don't get a seating area outside and there is no sound insulation from the bathroom next door. Nice place, good location, but get one of the rooms in the other block. Otherwise you can get better nearby.

This was our first destination at the beginning of a long trip round SE Asia and was a very welcoming happy start. The rooms overlook the picturesque smaller river in Luang Prabang in a very quiet area that is still a short walk from most restaurants and sights. The good breakfast is served on a terrace right next to the... More

Hotel is priced right for quality. Rooms are basic but comfortable. On a quiet street off the bustle yet close to the main temples, museum, and on the river. The staff is very helpful with trip planning and taxis. Breakfast is good and has some nice options.

Luang Prabang has changed a lot since my last visit in 2008: Lots of luxury resorts, villas and gourmet restaurants have sprung up like mushrooms - to the extent that the UNESCO at one point thought about cancelling Luang Prabang from its list. Villa Somphong's location is what you pay for, because it is a three-minute walk from famous Wat... More

My wife and I stayed in the Villa Somphong for two nights during our visit to Luang Prabang. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us.
