Rooms are large and dark because they are all dark wood. Location is really good, one building back from the river and close to food and night markets. Breakfast was basic, but ok. We found it to be very quiet apart for the usual morning roosters! Fairly basic but comfortable.

We booked to stay 4 nights at this guest house but there was some muddle up and when we arrived we were put into a room at the next door guest house with many apologies and a promise of the front room upstairs when we moved in the next day. And so it was. They upgraded us to a lovely... More

I was very pleased with my stay here, the staff are friendly, and helpful . The bedroom is spacious and comfortable too, I would recommend this hotel to others . The hotel is situated at a very convenient place , walking distance to the Mekong River, where the restaurants are located. Also the market place is close by.

We stayed one night and were so impressed with this lovely place that we decided to return after a trip up river. We needed four more nights and were offered an upgrade for the same price. The staff especially the guy who took our breakfast order were so helpful and pleasant. It is a good spot for the river and... More

I did not like the location of the hotel I stayed in for my first days in Luang Prabang. Walking along the town, found this nice guesthouse which proved to be a very nice alternative, for a much cheaper price, actually half of what we were paying. The superior room is not spacious. In fact, there is too much furniture... More

Definitely one of the nicer places in town. It's not on backpacker alley, so the noisy 20-something crowd and cheap eateries are far away. Sadly room 101, a king bed, is the first room adjacent to the check-in counter and dining tables for breakfast. By 7am, you'll hear a lot of clinking of cups and plates from the included b'fast....

I booked through the hotel website which required me to open an account with a third party booking service and pay for the rooms using my visa. I did this and received confirmation from the company that I had paid; however, I did not receive confirmation from the hotel. I emailed the hotel and was told I would have to... More

A lovely guest house on a quiet and clean street conveniently located near the night market. The rooms were very clean and well maintained with beautiful wood paneling and comfortable beds. Helpful staff. Breakfast ok.

Lovely wooden guesthouse centrally located just off the river in Luang Prabang. The rooms are very tastefully finished, and our room had a gorgeous balcony. As others have mentioned the showers are superb. The staff are very helpful and went out of their way to find me help with my car when it had problems. For those driving here ten... More
