We have stayed in this guesthouse for five nights during our trip to Laos. And we felt very at home here. The guesthouse is located in a beautiful old building in the fantastic old town of Luang Prabang. From the rooms upstairs you have a fantastic view onto Mekong river. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine (the Baguette... More

We recently stayed at this guesthouse for several nights. The manager, Xia, went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. The only problem was that there was either a mood or sewage problem with our bathroom and it really stunk! The only reason we didn't change hotels was that the town was full and Xia was so nice.

This is my fifth visit to Villa Chitdara 2 but it's my first time here without the two owners, Mr. Vong and his wife Ms. Ty, who are on unanticipated extended leave out of the country. From scores of other reviews, it's clear that this property's high rating is mostly because of the service provided by the owners. Therefore I... More

Overlooking Mekong river (though no sit out) - excellent staff. Very nice location with all attractions at walkable distance (for local sight seeing, just walk - no need to engage a van). Decent breakfast spread. Only bathrooms are a bit small. Excellent for a budget traveller

The room was beautiful, overlooking the Mekong. The staff was friendly, helpful, delightful. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was complete and freshly prepared. The bathroom was the issue. I am not a fan of mildew. We left the fan on at all times and that helped to clear the air. The shower curtains really needed to be replace. My... More

I found this guest house on Tripadvisor and booked it based on the great reviews and lovely comments about the owner, Mr Wong. The reviews were all right - the guest house is in a great location, close to restaurants and bars but also quiet. The room was spacious, clean and had a great view of the Mekong river. Breakfast...

In May , 2013, my wife and I booked a 3 night stay in a double room for November with a request to upgrade to a river view room if one became available. Yae at Chitdara 2 confirmed the booking the same day. On Sept. 24, I sent a 2nd email to confirm the reservation and again request the river... More

We stayed here for 6 nights recently. It was a mostly pleasant stay & I really have no complaints. Mai greeted us with a welcome drink on our arrival & showed us to our room overlooking the Mekong River. He certainly made our stay excellent as he was always on hand to assist/recommend/advise! The room was spacious & well appointed... More

I stayed at Villa Chitdara 2 for four nights in Luang Prabang. It had good trip advisor reviews, so I booked a room. To be honest, I found the place to be a little dark and musty. My bathroom had a terrible smell to it, so I kept the door open as much as I could to get some air... More
