Moved here as we decided to stay longer in Luang Prabang and wanted somewhere a bit cheaper. Mistake. Grotty and tatty rooms, lethargic staff who had to be roused from a sofa in reception to hand over room keys... Lethargic during the day that is, they found the energy to have a party on the reception desk at 3am before...

Rooms are fine but the cleanliness was not good (especially not for this price range). Dust everywhere, bathroom wasn't clean. Especially for 25$ (which is a high price for Luang Prabang) I can expect cleanliness. Good features: aircon, tv, big balcony, wifi (very slow, almost useless), 2 bottles of water every day, very friendly staff, helped us all the time...

Rented lower room with side door entrance. Room was a good size. Bathroom was a good size as well with divided shower and toilet areas. The room was a bit dark but very clean. Had a bit of confusion at check in. The guy couldn't locate our online reservation. They gave away the double river view room we booked and...

We had the front balcony room and paid $60/night, including breakfast. We were here for a week: Nov.7-14,2011. Yes...the location is a 10. Lovely street and a walk to everything. This room is atmospheric, but dark. Bathroom is a definite disappointment too. Breakfast is served in an open area across the street. Some mornings it was REALLY cold out there....

Liked the location and staff were helpful. Room was clean and managed to get some hot water from shower - which is more than can be said for many other places in the area. Accommodation in Laos is not very cheap and this was one of the cheapest I found. If I was going to go to Laos again, I...

Great position with breakfast on the deck overlooking the Nam Khan river. Good sized room with large bathroom with good water pressure and reliable hot water. Large shower recess separate from toilet & hand basis, so shower did not wet the other parts of the bathroom which is common in modest priced hotels in Thailand & Laos. Clean and comfortable...

Refreshing to find a modest price ($30 - breadfast $3.50 extra). We had downstairs rooms on the side. good size rooms and bathrooms, good hot water, good beds. Breakfast on deck on Riverside very pleasant. Quiet location that many places in this delightful world heritage French colonial town. Excellent same day laundry service at reasonable prices.

We stayed here for 3 nights while in Luang Prabang and wished we stayed longer. The guesthouse is on the Nam Khan riverside in a very quiet part of Luang Prabang, but only a few minutes walk to many restaurants, and a few more mins to the night market area. I loved the tree lined street and view across the...

This is a small guesthouse that we found after we checked out of our reserved hotel which was way out of town. We had a small room without a balcony as the room with the balcony was not available. It is very clean and comfortable although the beds are quite hard. It is in a great location overlooking the river...

We stayed for 4-nights at the Villa Riverside Nam Khan in November as part of a tour of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Based on other reviews we had decided to book the upstairs ‘luxurious VIP’ room with full length balcony. We had arranged for taxi transfers from the airport at the time of booking. The guesthouse is well-sited overlooking the...
