We have stayed on this quiet side of Luang Prabang before overlooking the Nam Khan river but wanted to try one of the many new guesthouses a springing up along the river. The location balances peaceful setting, especially evenings and at night with close proximity to most major temples and some restaurants and shops.
We negotiated the only room (number 1) with a river view balcony direct with the hotel at usd60 per night which was fine. However our subsequent booking made through Booking.com for our daughter was lost causing some inconvenience finding accommodation elsewhere for the last night. The hotel's booking 'system' was rudimentary to say the least.
The rooms were quite large for the money, though about 5 usd more than the average. Beds were fine, cleaning so so (cobwebs and resident spider, finally disposed of), but breakfast was a great disappointment. No juice, only fruit was banana and sliced toast, despite existence of French bakery 5 minutes away. It is a pity, considering the pretty eating area outside overhanging the river bank.
Others have commented on unfriendliness of staff but I put this down to lack of language skills. They were generally amiable.
