We stayed 3 nights in the Apple Guesthouse. The price-performance ratio is unbeatable. The staff and the manager are kind and helpful. Jimmy (the manager) really cares about his guests. You can also do trips organized by him, like going to the waterfall, as we did. The only negative thing is the bathroom, which is not what we expected.

Apple guesthouse is a good place to stay when you're in Luang Prabang. The location is great and manager Wayne has been very helpful. We stayed in a room on the ground Floor (room 4) and it seemed that the rooms upstairs are newer and better. Our bathroom was a bit outdated. However, we enjoyed our stay here.

I had a great time staying at Apple Guesthouse. Location was great and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. I loved my room.Wayne and Ai were very helpful. Wayne arranged for my half-day tour and cooking class, and they were good as well. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to my friends.

From the moment I arrived at Apple Guesthouse, I felt very welcomed and comfortable which, was extra nice after a long day of travelling. The owner Jimmy, his family, and the receptionist, I (not sure how he spells his name), were extremely helpful and friendly throughout my stay.

We had a lovely stay here whilst in Luang Prabang. The owners, their family and the other staff were all really helpful, friendly, and happy to sit and have a chat. The guesthouse is in a quiet side street right by the river, and a few minutes walk to the town. Our rooms were really comfortable, and clean, air con... More

Hi there, Hope you got home safe and so glad you enjoyed our beautiful Luang Phrabang and your stay at APPLE Guest House. It has got hot now but the afternoon rain helps cool everything down.

Thank you for taking the time to write a well informed review.

The place is a good choice. Staff was really friendly with good english. The room was small and simple but enough for 1 people. It was clean but they not clean daily. Location is perfect, almost riverfront and close to the main street.

Hi and thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and we have noted that people are not observing the no smoking signs. A new nonsmoking area has been made available downstairs outside, under shade. I have to disagree about the size of our rooms because people forget we are only supposed 2.5 star guest house... More

Apple Guesthouse is on a quiet lane that allows foot traffic and the occasional motorcycle to move from the main Old Town tourist streets to the river. This makes it ideal for walking around the historic section of LP, and along the Mekong. Management is Australian-Lao, so communication isn't a problem, since Australian is quite a bit like English.

I stayed at Apple GH for 2 nights with a friend and we fully enjoyed our stay. We were in Room no. 3 (twin beds) on the ground floor, and had no issues with noise etc. There was probably no view out the window, but by the time we got back to the GH we were exhausted from our explorations... More

We booked on internet a room for 35$, and we were surprised that the room didn't look like the pictures on the website. This wouldn't have been a problem, but the price is realy too expensive for what you get( no breakfast,no fridge). You can get the same or better room at half price just in front of the guest...

Sorry Marius, If your room did not look like our pictures then it is because you are in one of our new rooms which are larger than the old rooms and have a much better bathroom with separate shower & toilet.
