Villa Maydou is a magical place in Luang Prabang. The traditional houses are real little museums where we have the impression that time stopped a century ago. The garden and the green swimming pool give a very pleasant atmosphere. The welcome of the staff and Noy and Patrick gives you the impression to be in a big family house where the cousins meet. The breakfast is perfect before going to visit Luang Prabang by bike. The stay was too short and we can't wait to come back.

A bit far from the city center but not a problem, it is walkable in 15 mins. My room is on the ground floor but not noisy at all. Staffs are friendly, especially for white people. Room is huge and spotless, there is no TV in the room, Wifi is available but the signal is poor. Breakfast is included, food was beautiful and they service local tea.

We traveled as a family for the Lao New Year festivities. Our stay at the Villa Maydou offered us the opportunity to really embrace the very unique atmosphere of the city. The buildings are dating from 1925-1930 and were renovated by following the local techniques. Plus, the magnificent garden makes it a serene oasis. Located just beside a temple, the villa is at walking distance (15 min) of the peninsula. It is also very close to the Lao Red Cross were massage are proposed. Bicycles (very recent and in good condition) can be borrowed on the spot, making the discovery of the city and it surrounding very pleasant. We had a wooden room at the first floor with a nice balcony looking at the green swimming pool which integrates in the surrounding vegetation. Rooms are super clean, decorated with style without ostentation. Breakfast is really good beyond expectations, proposing home made delicacies, local products and Lao coffee from northern provinces. Hat off for the staff who is very kind and professional. Villa Maydou is a charming gem !

We stayed 3 nights in one of the deluxe tradition rooms, they are really pretty. Its like a green oasis and also good located. Breakfast is okay, nothing too special. After this 3 nights we went to a lodge further up the mekong and came back for 2 nights at villa maydou. For those 2 nights we got a extrem downgrade roomwise!! We payed for the deluxe room but we just got a normal room, which was full of Moskitos and the refrigerator was super loud and the wifi didnt woWe asked the staff at reception if it’s possible to change the room, but apparently he wasnt able to do that. So we asked if he atleast can spray something and we could change the next day and he said yes. but after asking 2 more times still no one of them could help us. And for me at this point customer service would be to find someone in charge and come to us to offer us a solution. They sprayed some chemicals at least but then left all the death moskitos in the rooms, that was quite grose. So i have mixed feelings about this place. Its always such a bad feeling you get, when you actually like the place, its pretty but no one helps you.

Dear nuumi, Thank you for your constructive review. I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay the first time, and deeply sorry about what you experienced the second time. Unfortunately, I have not been told about your issues when you were there so I investigated your case through our team which is the reason why I am only answering you now. According to your saying, I still have difficulties in finding your booking with us. Nevertheless, I sincerely apologize about this experience and the fact that we could not provide an solution that was effective enough. Concerning the mosquitoes, we are currently considering new options to keep them away without using chemicals. As for the breakfast, we provide everyday fresh products from local partners and homemade cakes, jam, fruit juices, yogurt etc. as well as salty dishes like eggs cooked on demand, sausages of Luang Prabang or Lao noodle soup. Our Lao coffee and our 3 different teas (green, black and red) are also available to go with the breakfast according to everyone's taste. I would really like to hear more from you about what happened so I invite you to contact me through our email address : reservation@villamaydou.com Again I apologize for not being aware of your experience while you were with us. Kind regards, Gaelle, Guest relations manager

This is beautiful hotel. Well beyond my expectations. Intimate, relaxed and restful. This is the kind of places where you make yourself at home right away. Attention to the details and care to the guests seem to be the main rule and every single staff member deserves congratulations. They are so friendly and helpful. Many of them are working and studying at university at the same time. Rooms are tastefully decorated inspired by Lao traditions. The pool is green, - perfectly integrated in the garden - clean and refreshing. The location is perfect – within walking distance is the tranquil Luang Prabang, the Wat Visoun and the old metal bridge -. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore them by bicycles. The bikes are available for free. All in all, I had a really good experience in this brilliant hotel – I stayed several times in different places of the city and this hotel is definitely my favorite -.

We spent three nights in Villa Maydou, as part of an extended southeast Asia trip. The room looked OK but the toilet was terrible the WC was so squeezed that you barely had space to sit and the shower wasn’t working properly. Besides, it smelled like a closed space. We were on the ground floor and the upper floor had a wooden floor: any step of the occupants of the upper room would wake us up at night...and furthermore they didn’t have the intelligence to ask the cleaning ladies not to clean the room at eight in the morning after the early check out of the previous occupants. Internet wasn’t working at all in the room so we had to go to the reception every time we needed it..and a lot of other things were not working properly and make your stay unpleasant. Also, the location is quite unfortunate if you’re planning to spend your time in the old part of the city. My personal recommendation is you find yourself a different place to stay

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your time in Villa Maydou. I sincerely apologize for this water incident. As the bathrooms are mostly built with wood, the material can sometimes move and warp with humidity, and so can weaken the water tightness of the bath tub. Our team is currently waterproofing it. Kind regards,
