We arrived from Vang Vieng after a long bus ride and discovered that they had given away the room we booked with a double bed. Instead they offered us a room with twin beds. The shower did not work properly in the room (nozzle wouldn't stay in the holder on the wall), the room was dark and dank, and we... More

This hotel is a central choice in Luang Prabang, and right around the corner from popular Joma cafe. Walking distance from most of the old town. Room was tidy with good-sized bathroom and good water pressure. Laundry service offered at 10,000 kip per kilo (and was done same day!). Overall decent value given similarly priced places in the area.

Really close to night market and close to the river. Very clean rooms, slight issues with water pressure (sometimes none!) but it was new year and everyone was using water to splash each other. Only thing we would say is that they don't do breakfast for the price you pay. This feels more like a homestay than a guesthouse which... More

We stayed at 'Hoxieng Guesthouse 1' twice and really enjoyed our time there! The location is great - not only very close to the Mekong (we could even see it from our balcony on our second stay!) but also to the old town with the night market and all it's attractions. WiFi worked mostly fine. Water, hot beverages and bananas... More

Compared to the 2 other places we stayed at in Luang Prabang this was excellent. It's very clean, and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We were only going to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 5. Free coffee, water and fruit, great sleep quality. The shower was slightly difficult - water pressure is up and down so when... More

We stayed at Hoxieng Guesthouse 1 for 4 nights. We got dropped off in the area by our tuktuk driver from the bus station. We wandered down the street asking for price and availability. The rate we got at Hoxieng 1 seemed to be in the average low range of prices for the area (20$/night). They have a sister guesthouse... More

We stayed in Hoxieng (1) for 4 nights while in Luang Prabang. The rate was reasonable but we didn't receive anything special for the money. The location was just fine, a short walk to the night market and main tourist street of town, and a quick walk to he river as well. The family was friendly enough after our initial... More

Arrived from Hanoi with nothing pre booked. Hoxieng 1 was full so stayed elsewhere but booked 3 nights from the next day. In the morning the room wasn't ready-plied us with tea/coffee & bananas!! Small but bright double room, spotless, good hot shower, v good value. Such a quiet, pretty lane, 2 mins from breakfast by the Mekong-25,000 for eggs... More
