While we tend to seek places a short distance outside the center of town that are clean and comfortable with basic amenities and a pleasant staff, this one barely made it. It was cheap for sure at $7 a night so we couldn't expect much. The dirt road leading to it was pretty awful (dead rat and huge potholes) so... More

Had a bit of a hard time to find it at first, I believed it couldn't possible be in this small unpaved road, but then I followed the water and drove a bit further into that "trail" and voila, there it was. The rooms are nothing special, but however it's just the atmosphere, hanging around and doing absolutely nothing. I... More

Rustic bungalows with gorgeous views of fish ponds. Lee, the guy who runs the place, is super nice. Just don't expect typical guest house services like travel assistance, bar/restaurant, laundry, or English. Drinking water and hot shower provided, as well as a tiny TV if you can figure out how it works. Internet was off and on. Sheets smelled funny.... More

A little bit disappointed after my night there. 2 or 3 couples arrived in the middle of the night, speaking loud and then having sex loud... Beautiful view, nice owners, quite clean room, bed very hard. 50.000 khip.

This guesthouse is located 5 minutes' walk from the centre of town but the view makes it feel remote and secluded. If you manage to book a bungalow then you get a balcony overlooking rice paddies and mountains, not a bad sight to wake up to. The service is Lao style, that is to say verging on non-existant, but when... More

I lived in this guesthouse for a little over a month. There are never any staff there and they only have one key per room so you have to be there if you want it cleaned. But it's cheap as anything, comfortable and has amazing views of farmland and the mountains. The few times you do encounter staff they are... More

Honestly, when people start complaining about things you would think they were paying a fortune. You are not in the United States, you are in Laos! You are paying 6$ or 5€ or £4 a night. You get what you pay for. We booked online,the owner was waiting for us, and had reserved us a nice bungalow overlooking the water.... More

We stayed here in Nov. 2012 and were completely shocked that it was rated as the #3 hotel (at the time) on tripadvisor. When we arrived (we had already booked a room through their website), there was no one to greet us and we ended up walking around the grounds for about 10 minutes saying "sabai dee" (hello) apprehensively before...

Me and my wife stayed here for three nights in October. It's a ten minute walk outside the village center, which is just fine. We took a bungalow (low-season-rate, 50.000 KIP) with a beautiful view over de rice-fields. The room was just fine, the bathroom dirty. Tai Dam Guesthouse from the outside is still very nice. From the inside, it... More

We stayed in this guest house the three days spent in Luang Nam Tha. We arrived with the bus from Luang Prabang and, even if we arrived at 4 o'clock in the morning, the receptionist gave us the room without paying the day. The cost was 50.000k per night (in low rainy season). We got the boungalow number 6, with... More
