Stayed for 3 nights here. Positives: the price was good, room had a balcony with chairs looking over the street, the room was large and reasonably clean, and the guesthouse is a cute old wooden house. The staff were friendly. Negatives: the bathroom was pretty bad, a lot of mold and seemed like it hadn't had a proper clean in... More

It's about a 15 min walk to the night market and a few minutes to where the bars are. - The price was slightly cheaper than... More

Stayed in a back main floor room and apart from the bathroom being outdated, the room itself was clean. Very quite at night and for the price and location it was great. Very nice staff. Very close to utopia bar

We stayed four nights in Muonglao guesthouse and would recommend if you're looking for something really good located and cheap. The rooms are not really clean nor pretty but with a great location so it's a good option. Nice staff but bad laundry !

We had a good sized, nicely decorated room with balcony overlooking road, only let down by a dirty, mouldy bathroom and a weak Internet connection. The hotel is a fair walk from the main town and yo need to circumvent the hill to get to the night market and riverside, though there are restaurants and bars nearby. The major let... More

We arrived as a party of two couples and stayed in two double rooms. The place was expensive at 18 dollars per night so we were looking forward to a nice, high quality place to spend 4 nights. The first room we were shown smelled very damp so we asked for another and got two rooms on opposite sides of... More

Don't get a ground floor room here. Desperately needing renovation, and the room smelled musty or moldy. Great location, friendly staff, and really cheap. don't confuse this place with Muonlao riverside by Xandria.

We got to Luang Prabang really early in the morning after a night bus from hell, but luckily they let us check in when we arrived so we were really grateful to get in and shower and sleep! We had a triple room, which was really really dark as all the windows were covered by shutters and closed with masking... More

We had a room that overlooked the street out front. There was a balcony out there too if you opened the door you could sit. But the noise, and dust, and traffic below made it not a very pleasant place to sit. The room was large and a good value for what we paid but if you have to keep... More
