“Nice hotel in a quiet locaton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

The hotel is located within easy 5 min walk to the town main street and the riverfront. It also very near to the morning market. Hotel room is clean and large and bed is comfortable. Staff are friendly and there is free flow of nice Lao coffee and tea and banana. You can enjoy your nice cold Lao beer sitting on the front garden or up on the balcony.
Its value for money.

Villa Meuang Lao was a beautiful host for us during our time in Luang Prabang. The location was so central - we could walk anywhere that we wanted to go. The property itself is clean and comfortable and particularly good value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place and would happily return. My only note would be that if you are looking for a homey atmosphere, you are NOT going to find it here. Don't bother asking for help, directions, recommendations from the front desk. They really don't give a care and even if they did their English isn't really up to snuff for anything but the basics. We didn't mind the privacy and didn't have any trouble, but if this would bother you then maybe find somewhere else. Overall though accomodation is excellent and as I said, highly recommended.

A really nice little place right behind the Wet Market and near Wat Mai and the Mekong. The only thing I could have used in addition to the other amenities would have been a guest computer. It would be hard to beat Villa Meuang Lao for the price in LPQ. My room, #5, had 4 windows that were protected from the rain by wood shutters and an overhang, and was even better looking than the one pictured on top of this page. Very friendly service here!

Villa Meuang Loa is well situated in the city. It is around the corner from the morning and night markets, yet just enough removed that it is a quiet area and you can sleep. The rooms and the service are good, the place is clean and well kept. Stay here if you're looking for a basic room in a great location. (Word to the wise maybe don't do laundry here, my white things came back pink, I don't look good in pink!)

I love this place and there's nothing much to pick upon.

The hotel is situated at an excellent location. It is just 1-3 minutes from the morning wet market, night markets, restaurants, monks collection of alms, trekking companies and royal palace, 

The rooms are pretty and extremely clean. The beds are comfortable and the TV is big with many channels. Wifi in the room is smooth. Service is excellent. There's even a tea corner at the lobby where you may help yourself to beverages and fruits. The only catch is that breakfast is not provided.

This hotel deserves a higher rating in trip advisor and I would definitely recommend this place!

Villa Meaung Lao is located right smack in the middle of the main street in LP. The morning market is right at the door step and the night market is just 5 minutes walk away. Most of the main attractions are outside the doorstep too.

My stay at VML for 4 nights was absolutely fantastic. The staff there were very friendly and helpful and seem knowledgeable. The room was fantastically clean and quite cosy. Standard of staff english was very good too. It would have been perfect if the hotel served breakfast too!

Friendly helpful staff, rooms are a good size and very comfortable with air con and fan. Good standard of cleanliness, hot showers, and free wifi though a bit slow. No food available but plenty of good options in town. Fantastic location - two minutes from the main street in town with access to all the shops, night markets, temples and museum and two minutes from the riverfront too. Nice and quiet too. More expensive to book online in advance than on spec but the hotel was fully booked so worth it if you want to guarantee your room.
