Friendly staff + cozy room + perfect location = wonderful stay. The owner Jimmy and his wife Nou are very helpful, his mother Robyn is very friendly. In short, Apple guesthouse is a highly recommended place to stay when travelling in Luang Prabang.

My partner and I stayed here for 7 nights in total. Jimmy and his wife Nua, Jimmy's parents Robyn and John are very friendly and very willing to help out, give advice or just have a chat. They helped us book an elephant tour, which was the highlight and helped us with transportation to Nong Khiaw. The beds are comfortable... More

We stayed here in April 2015, choosing the Apple Guesthouse on the strength of other people's recommendations and its location. We booked for two nights, but liked the guesthouse and Luang Prabang so much that we stayed for five. The owners, Jimmy and his wife Nua are very friendly and helpful and they both speak good English. The rooms are... More

My hubby an I stayed there beginning of May.Like in any establishment in Laos, we were asked to leave our shoes outside. The room was clean and comfortable. They only service it for free every 3 days, which I think is great, saves water and keeps our privacy. the hotel employee arranged a scooter for us to go to the... More

Location is in the most beautiful & quiet laneway running off the road beside the Mekong. As we approached it the first time our thoughts were, 'I hope this it' which is often not what runs through your mind as you approach some hotels in Asia. The people who run it are the best!!! Jimmy is a legend. His wife... More

This is a nice comfortable guesthouse very close to the Mekong River. The hotel prides itself on very kind service by the owners Jimmy and his wife Nou. When they are not around they have assistance from their parents Robin and John. It is a cute clean family ran hotel. Don't worry that they don't include breakfast. You can walk... More

I stayed here for three nights. Jimmy, the host, and his wife are so nice. They tried to help me when I was sick, and invited every guests to their party during the new year's day. Location is okay.

We only stayed for one night in this guesthouse, but this place has given us remarkable memories. Located in the alley so we don't have to worry about the unnecessary loud or noise, but still very close to the river, restaurants, night market, Phousy hill, and to see the alms giving. Just as many guesthouses in Luang Prabang, with wooden... More

After travelling Thailand and Laos for a couple of weeks, we arrived in Luang Prabang after a hellish busdrive consisting of more than 20 hours. We used to check Tripadvisor for a lot of our decisions in the past, for example, while travelling Tuscany, sometimes experiencing some of the worst dining moments ever. However, in Luang Prabang, a lot of... More

My second 4 week stay here in 6 months, Apple is my home away from home. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
