We booked a room on the internet during the Chinese new year period. When we arrived, the person at the desk said that they had "no rooms", and therefore none for us, while the booking was confirmed on the booking.com website. He said that he could not honor our booking because the internet at the hotel was not working, which... More

This hotel did not honor a booking from booking.com as they had overbooked. The chap at reception asked me to cancel the booking on booking.com which I refused to as I I would have been charged the cancellation fee. Anyways booking.com cancelled it a few days later for free but it did mean I had to spend a morning looking... More

Stayed at this place for 3 nights on a tour group (of 3 people). The staff were friendly, although a little reserved. Breakfast was meagre - not much choice, but adequate. Didn't see many other guests so perhaps not a lot of breakfast food provided. Otherwise, it was a pleasant place to stay and not badly situated - only a... More

Bring insect repellent! the hotel is right next to a lake area (mosquito breeding ground! and you have breakfast less than 5 feet from the waters edge!). But that is the only negative really. as long as you are wearing repellent, you will have a great time. rooms not spacious, but not small, well decorated (for Laos) and full of... More

I stayed at this hotel while on a tour so I can’t comment on the price or value. The room I had was good (room 204), with a large bed (very firm), a wardrobe, a large flat-screen TV (not used) and a couple of chairs. Lighting was good. There was plenty of hot water. Unfortunately, the shower floods the whole... More

The hotel is fine, nice bed. The wifi reaches some rooms. Breakfast was fine, nothing special. I just felt it was a bit out of things, and I prefer to be closer. You do get a bit more sense of the town by walking out there. The people were helpful with light bulbs and laundry.

We stayed in 2 different guesthouses before we found this one. Both had problems with cleaning and staff. We had no problems on both counts here. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are more hotel than guesthouse with daily cleaning and everything you need- AC, TV, fridge and ensuite bathroom with plenty of hot water... More

I think the guesthouse has a great location. It's two long blocks (5-10 minutes walk) from the main attractions (market, temples, cafes) and busy roads. It's far enough that your sleep isn't bother by loud and busy activities. The room is spacious with air condition, wi-fi, clean, and the bathroom is nice. I spent four nights at Villa Kiengkham and... More

We stayed 3 nights here and is was a good base for seeing Luang Prabang.Room was large,with heavy dark furniture typical of Laos and an adequate shower room. No view but breakfast served in the garden by LOVELY staff.Night market about 5 minutes away and plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
