I can't say enough good things about this charming guest house on a quiet lane in the heart of LP. I will start with one thing that did not bother me but may bother fussy travelers: in my room, there were lots of tiny ants everywhere. They are perfectly harmless, and I was told that since it's the rainy season,... More

The guest house is in a centrally located position but is in a lane way so is very quiet. Beds are the typical hard beds you encounter in Asia but a sheet is provided, not just a doona which made a nice change. Rooms are on the small size but there is a nice common area balcony. Downstair rooms can... More

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.

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.

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

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
