We stayed at Villa Somphong four nights in December 2014. The hotel room was ok for the price, neat, but quite small. There was a great choice of breakfast and the location is perfect. The bonus was the owner who was extemely helpful and nice.

Nice little guesthouse in a great spot right on the Nam Khan river, near where it joins the Mekong. The rooms themselves are nothing special, very thin walls and smelt a bit damp but were clean. Breakfast was on the terrace overlooking the river which was lovely and the owners were great- super friendly, with a travel agency built in... More

I researched many similarly priced and situated guest houses in Luang Prabang and was very satisfied with my decision to stay at the Villa Somphong. The room, service and breakfast were all exactly as I anticipated and the location was superb. The owner and staff where all very helpful especially in arranging for our touring activities. The only drawback was... More

The little guesthouse is in a peaceful location by the Nam river, it serves very good breakfast on the terrace by river side. The staff is very nice and helpful. Only thing is the walls are very thin so one can hear TV/people talking at next room. This seems to be the case in most economy guest houses. The night... More

My wife and I liked the stay at this accommodation because it is located at a quiet place on the river front of Nam Khan river yet near to the shops and restaurants. If you are looking forward for a laotian hospitality with personal touch this is the place. Their English is good and they are striving to improve their... More

We stayed at Villa Somphong for 6 nights in October 2014. We are retired couple in our sixties, we travel often. We found the hotel disappointing, the room is small, there are no Tea or Coffee making facilities, there is no hot water in sink, only in shower. The breakfast was nice across the road overlooking the river. We found... More

Villa Somphong is a pretty building facing the river on the peninsula. Good English is spoken, the rooms were very neat and clean and cleaned each day, the rental bikes were very good, the position is great very near to the temples and the monks' morning procession. Breakfast is taken over the road looking over the river. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Villa Somphong on the Nam Khan river in Luang Prabang for two weeks in December 2013 and were only too happy to return recently. We enjoyed it just as much the second time. Peaceful, yet vibrant location in the old quarter, surrounded by beautiful temples. Each day began with breakfast on the river, watching the locals fish... More

I've been in hundreds of places; visited over 50 countries, and have never felt so warmly welcomed and received at this place. It was like being an honoured guest of note in someone's home. The people employed there were heaps gracious and hospitable, internet perfect, breakfast special (recommend a cautious adventure of Lao breakfast), times with them all were among... More
