The staff are charming, the location is excellent on this quiet alley. For 150,000kip per night you will struggle to find much better in high season. Much better than the other hotel we stayed in for the same price. It is not fancy, but it is very clean, quiet and secure. We liked it so much we extended our stay... More

This was our second guesthouse in Luang Prabang. We had to keep moving over the Christmas period where everything was booked up! This was the most disappointing of the guest houses we stayed in. The bathroom needed some maintenance. The toilet hose leaked continually so the bathroom floor was always a wet mess when you went in. The shower head... More

Stayed here for 3 nights after arriving in Luang Prabang a few weeks ago. Lovely traditional style guesthouse with comfortable and clean rooms including AC and fan, en suite bathroom with hot shower. Fantastic location in Ban Hoxieng - close to the river and also lots of nice restaurants close by and cafes including Joma. Mr Chanthy the owner was... More

I checked out of this guesthouse after one night. Really wanted to like this place, as I had pre-booked online due to the great reviews but unfortunately, I didn't have the most pleasant experience. While the location is great and the family is friendly, cleanliness was a major issue for me.There were two bugs in my bed upon arrival and... More

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
