The friendly welcome was a nice touch on arrival after a long journey. We arrived a few hours before our check in time and they allowed us to put our things in the room and then quickly made it up. The owner's English is excellent and he is more than happy to chat and help out if needed. He will happily store your valuables in thier safe. We stayed in building 1, which is the older of the two. The rooms are of an okay size for two people and the bathroom was adequate. Our room had no fridge or television but that didn't bother us. Breakfast isn't included but there is a communal tea and coffee area and space to sit outside if you want to. It is in a great location. Two seconds from the river and a few minutes from the other main part of the old quarter were there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Also, easy to get to all the main attractions from here. Overall, we felt it was decent value for for thirty five dollars a night.

Room Tip: Apparently building two has bigger and brighter rooms but you will pay more.

Small guesthouse in a nice traditional Lao wooden house, excellent location close to all the main temples, in a quiet street but close to Mekong and lots of possibilities for breakfast and restaurants nearby; very kind and friendly helpful staff

Ammata Guest House was an ok hotel but at $50 a night, it was simply too expensive for what you got. The room was clean and the shower had hot water all day. And it's right near the monks' procession in the morning which is convenient. But I had booked and pre-paid for a double room and they only had a twin available when I checked in. The TV only had RTV which is an odd selection for your one foreign channel. The internet was incredibly slow. And although the staff were friendly, they couldn't recommend much (travel agents, etc.). At the end of the day, you got a private room with a clean bathroom for $50. There are much cheaper options in LP that give you the same things.

We stayed in the Ammata Guesthouse (Building 1) in a double air con room for three nights at a rate of £27 per night. We were impressed on arrival by the warmth of our welcome and the look and feel of the accommodation which is clean and has lovely wooden floors.

Over the course of our stay we concluded that the accommodation was expensive for what we received. There was no television in the room, the mattress had some broken springs and the internet connection was poor. The toilet paper provided was really poor and came apart in hand (and anywhere else!) when used. None of these problems were significant enough to be cause for complaint but they did undermine the overall value of our stay.

The guesthouse is really well located for all that Luang Prabang has to offer, and you can watch the monks receiving their alms from 0600. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we did enjoy our stay; nonetheless, we could enjoyed more for our money elsewhere.

I spent 3 nights here and payed $35 a night through agoda. It was a lovely guesthouse with nice and professional staff, in the best part of LP (IMO). The room was small but nice with a shared balcony. The bathroom was adequate. No breakfast, but coffee or tea in the morning. It was a peaceful stay, and I didn't mind the noise of people getting on with their day in the morning, as I'm an early riser. Couple of issues though. If you need dependable wifi, it was not. The air conditioner at different times spat out small chunks of ice, or dribbled water. All at the head of the bed. And most disturbingly, the toilet would make a horrible plunging sound whenever someone in the building would flush, and cough up TP :(
Overall though it was a great improvement from where I had been staying and I would return.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights! The hotel was clean but most important, the a/c was amazing! My allergies were acting up while I was in luang proang and so glad to find this hotel at such a reasonable rate with air conditioning. The owner was also nice and always had a smile on his face, especially when my husband referred to him as "boss." lol. It was a great trip and nice stay, good location and comfy bed!

Family manage and with personal touch. Owners are very friendly and sincere. Good location, where you can see the monks every morning passing by receiving their alms. Close to town and river front. Though close to attractions, you can still be assured of a good night sleep with nice beds and quiet street. The garden before the reception is extremely good for a drink or reading a book. Free flow of tea and coffee at the reception. The staff did a wonderful job in keeping the place clean especially our room. Will definitely stay there in future.

Room Tip: Chose a ground floor as you have can access to the shady garden.
