“expensive and nice change”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

I arrived in Luang Prabang after the two day boat trip. The Sokhdee, which I stayed in last trip, was full. As I meandered down the roadsm, it was apparent everything seemed booked. Eventually, I walked into Choumkhong which had a vacancy at $30 US. At the late hour, I took the room knowing I would have a great night's sleep, and downgrade next day. It was a peaceful oasis, nice bathroom, superb bed, fresh fuit, all the amenities including a host who made me a cup of coffee.

Room Tip: I was fortunate to have a corner room which included additional French colonial windows.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2010

Stayed at the Choumkhong Guesthouse for 3 nights whilst on a tour of Laos and Cambodia. Couldn't have been happier with my stay.
Choumkhong Guesthouse is quite sweet - tucked up a quiet side street with a gorgeous little balcony at the front. The guesthouse is opposite the lovely Wat Choumkhong and only about a 3 minute walk to the main street of Luang Prabang (and the night market). Guesthouse and room was quite basic, but extremely good value for money (and clean/tidy). Private bathroom was of a good standard.
Owners kept their distance, but were helpful/friendly when required. They provided an extremely cheap (and good) clothes washing service. Air-con was available for a small fee if required.
I absolutely LOVED my 4 days in the picturesque Luang Prabang - now one of my favorite places in the world! Make sure you get to Kouang Si waterfalls - a must see! And staying in this comfortable, simple guesthouse made my stay in Luang Prabang even more enjoyable.
