We stayed at the Luang Prabang Hotel for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Perfect location at walking distance from pretty much everything, the staff was super friendly and helpful. They helped us hiring a motorbike (to visit the amazing Kuang Si falls) and the breakfast was delicious. It was quiet and almost felt like home after a few days.... More

May be going by the name Luang Prabang Hotel. This place has a recurring issue with sewage odor in the hotel. They are "working on it,". I would advise you check with the manager first before booking a room. Our toilet gurgled and bubbled every time someone else flushed their toilet. The manager and owner both told me they have...

We arrived early and the hotel was really helpful by giving us a room that we could shower and relax in until our own room was ready. We were a little disappointed as the room we moved to was not quite as nice as the room we’d been allowed to use that morning but it was still fine with a... More

I had just come from a similar priced 4 star hotel in Cambodia and I wasn't prepared for the massive difference in accommodation standards in Luang Prabang. You just don't get much for your money here and bargains require a good scout. Once I got over this, I really enjoyed the Villa Merry 3. I loved the sweet and kind... More

My stay at Villa Merry III some time ago surpassed most of my expectations. For what you pay here, you get a very nice room, in a very well located building, managed by very friendly and helpful staff. It might not be the fanciest option in LP, but I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for reasonably priced, clean... More

Stayed in Luang Prabang for two nights, three days. The staff at Villa Merry Lao III were more than accommodating. We didn't arrive until 9pm, after a 27 hour bus ride we were knackered, the staff changed our room so we could have a double bed. Situated near great restaurants and bars and a street away from the night market.The... More

We found it difficult to find good accommodation in Luang Prabang until we came across this gem. The staff were brilliant and so friendly. Always offering us bananas, water, tea and coffee free of charge. The rooms were simple but did the job for the fair price especially as breakfast was included. The breakfast was a choice of omelet or... More

We stayed four nights at the Merry Lao and enjoyed it thoroughly. The room was quite acceptable, with a comfortable bed, spacious full bathroom, and even a window overlooking the town. The staff, though, are what makes the place special- they provided absolutely top-notch service from the moment we arrived and really made us feel at home. Our only complaint... More

In terms of staff and cleanliness this place deserves 5/5, but 4/5 does justice since, of course, being more on the budget side it doesn't offer the luxuries of a 5/5. Having stayed at many hostels and guesthouses in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos, it was great to find somewhere that genuinely did what it said on the tin. Simple double... More

My partner and I enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very helpful, the breakfast was excellent! You get free water or tea/coffee all day. Our only complaint was that we saw a cockroach in our room!!
