This is a small (I think 10 room) guesthouse in a great little side street location in Luang Prabang with fantastic low season deals. The entire place is super clean. The rooms are simple, but have everything you need -- comfy beds, good aircon, decent wifi. No breakfast, but a lot of nice touches like jugs to refill your water... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Apple Guest House. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Great to have you stay. And thank you for your kind words. The silversmith has been there for many generations so it comes with living in the heart of a Heritage Town. But the beauty of the whole of Luang Phrabang is just asking to be explored. Hope to see you again Wayne More

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 Our bathroom was a bit outdated.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.

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.
