We turned up in Luang Prabang at a hostel which had overbooked and booked here last minute. We couldn't have picked a better place. Just as cheap as a hostel and the room/service we got was amazing. Perfect location, just off the river, near all the nice restaurants/bars. The family that looked after us were very helpful and always had... More

lovely hotel and great staff for a great price, but right next door to a silver smith, so you get banging all day. Really annoying. really need to have industrial factories NOT in the middle of accomodation areas. Great location and can't fault anything apart from the noise

Nice place to stay. Unbeatable location in Luang Prabang's old town, close to everything and 10 meters away from the alms ceremony route. Jimmy is a great guy, extremely helpful. The rooms are good. Make sure you get one in the 2nd floor.

The Apple Guesthouse in Luang Prabang is hands down the best place to stay in the town. The owners/staff are super friendly and will help you out with anything you need. They keep everything very nice and tidy. Recently, they just had a daughter and their daughter is very cute. Makes your trip more personable!

I booked this hotel for two nights by "booking.com" and was disappointed by the place, compared to others. The best point is that it is close to the river and the "central street" (where the night market and most of the shops are).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Apple Guest House offers quaint, personalized and friendly 10 room accommodation in the heart of this unique UNESCO heritage city, just behind the main tourist street and two doors from the mighty Mekong River and its varied restaurants for all budgets. A short walk will get you to the major attractions; temples, restaurants, tourist information, tours, and morning and night markets are just around the corner. Rooms are spotlessly maintained; many in teak, which is the traditional Lao style. All have air conditioning, fan, free Wifi, LED TV with CNN, BBC, HBO and the Australian network. The two superior rooms each have their own private balconies overlooking the quiet streetscape. One superior double room has a fantastic brand new private bamboo porch creating a stylish romantic atmosphere for people like "YOU". Our family rooms are very spacious. And the customer service by Lao owner Jimmy (a former Buddhist monk and who has lived with his Australian family for 12 years) and his beautiful wife "Nou", is truly exceptional. They both speak excellent English, have good local knowledge of the city and countryside and are very helpful with Tuk Tuk, travel and tour bookings.  The common balcony upstairs overlooks the alleyway’s activities, where you can sit and enjoy free tea, coffee, cool water and magazines, and is a popular place for people using the free WiFi.   Nou and Jimmy invite you to come and experience our warm hospitality. ... more   less
