I stayed here on the strength of the reviews and the price. I was very pleased with the result. The room indeed looks like the photos. They are spotless. The staff fall over themselves to make the stay comfy. The breakfast consists of fruit, yoghurt, breads, eggs any way, coffee and juices. You can opt to have breakfast over the road overlooking the mekong river which is a treat. All Bottles of Water are complimentary. There are mini marts and money changers near by. Across the road are a range of very good quality places to eat for even the most frugal. You are also right next to some of the better temples and the main boat ramp for tours.
The location is in the heart of the old town but far enough off of the Main Street, two small blocks up a gentle hill, to make your sleep quiet and uninterrupted. It also acts as a respite from touts.
My only criticism is that the larger room on the bottom floor sits right off of the dining room come foyer. This can add some noise traffic from comings and goings and at breakfast time as well as road traffic. But given the small number of rooms and hence guests as well as the sleepy nature of the roads in luang prabang it was not much of an impediment. I also stayed on the upper floor with views to the Mekong. A smaller room but deathly quiet. That would be my pick.
Vong is an attentive host and will delight you with a chat and a tour of the local temple and procession of monks at alms giving as he goes to pray.
Even the quaint practise of not wearing your shoes inside the guest house added to the experience as it gave a better feel for the life in what is still and traditionally minded town.
I felt is was good value for money and provided a safe, comfortable, attentive base for my stay in Luang Prabang.
