Quite, clean and simple bungalows with river view and surrounded by a garden. The bungalows are made of local material and all the linen and furniture are made in a local design. The restaurant is very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The guesthouse is out of town with the convinience of no traffic noise and the possibilty to get... More

The guesthouse is in a nice position near the river a bit far from the town. It is a very basic accomodation, but it is fine. The restaurant of the guesthouse is excelent both for breakfast and dinner.

The Boat Landing is an interesting place to stay, by a river with every bedroom having a view of the river. When we stayed there the weather was very cold and with no heating in the rooms we were a little chilly. However, we were fine once in bed as there were lots of blankets. The food is amazing a...

Great position and pleasant staff but the bungalows are in need of a refresh. We had plenty of space in possibly the largest bungalow but the ants in the loo and its resident ghecko were unwelcome at night and it was dark and gloomy inside.

This eco lodge would have been amazing in 1999 when it was first set up by its American founder. However since he left 7 years ago it has not been kept to the original standard (eg gutters falling down; termite attacks on wood; dust and dead bugs on windows and walls). It has a fantastic restaurant with authentic Lao food... More

Peaceful bungalows on the river, good and copious breakfast, and fun kayaking available nearby - an excellent place to wind down and relax after some hard goin' trekking in the Nam Ha NPA. Definitely our first choice in Luang Namtha !

This hotel could be great, it just isn't. The good points are that it is in a lovely setting on the river and the food in the restaurant is amazing, the main issue we had was with the rat excrement in the room. When we arrived it was isolated to the bathroom, when we went back to the room after... More

On the positive side (and unlike some of the other places at which we stayed in the area), the hotel has running hot water (solar heated) that is hot enough for a shower and flows also from a tap in the sink. It also has generally good northern Laos food and wifi in the lobby/restaurant area. On the negative side,... More
