“Friendly lovely place”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. This hotel is only 5 rooms, nice location on Sakkaline road and the same street of night market. This hotel is quiet, suitable for people who want to rest. Staffs are really nice and helpful. you can borrow the bicycle to ride around the town. the only weak point of it is the hotel doesnt serve any food, even snack. anyway, still a very lovely place to come back

What is there not to like about this place for the kind of traveler who is on a moderate budget, wants a nice, clean, conveniently located place that is well lit, secure and has hot/cold running water, cool a/c and quiet rooms and clients. There are only a few rooms, but during the low season, it was not a problem.

Maybe the best part about this place is the location. If you like a good stroll, then this place may suit you well. Just about 4-5 minutes from the center, it is an enjoyable walk to and from town. The morning alms giving procession passes right in front your hotel...you can take pictures from the patio table or go across the street to the Scandinavian Bakery and have a hot beverage with a croissant and take in the early morning scenery.

A good morning stroll can be had by walking along the river front. Stop by the Riverfront Cafe for the best breakfast view in town. You can then head up the main street or continue your walk depending on the time of day and coolness of the hour.

Weather wise, September was quite nice and not terribly hot. Being the low season, rooms were readily available and longer stays merited a discount. Do not be afraid to ask. You will more than likely be rewarded for your efforts. Courteousness is the rule when asking.

Room Tip: Up stairs and back...maybe room 2? Ask to see a room first if one is available. No hotel has ever...

We stayed two nights at the Chang Inn Hotel after already staying 7 nights in other guesthouses in Luang Prabang. The Chang Inn was defInitively the best place at reasonable price of 30$ per night. The staff was very friendly and supportive, we directly got cold drinks after arrival and our luggage was taken care off. But even better was the room: large, absolutely clean, a comfortable bed and really tasteful wooden furnitures and lovely decoration and artwork. The same in the bathroom: very clean, seperate shower, beautiful tiles and organic shampoo in handcrafted bottles.
The Chang Inn is located next to a Vat, where at about 04:00 am a big drum wakes up the inhabitants. That's the reason why we didn't gave 5 star for the location, but with earplugs no problem. And when you want to attedn the daily procession of the monks at about 06:00 am you just have to go out on the street.
Overall great price-for-value location!

We did not book this hotel, but turned up and they had a room available for us

Room: It was a downstairs room, very small, double bed, not much room for our suitcases. We did leave Luang Prabang for several nights and came back to the Chang Inn and had an upstairs room for the same price which was very spacious.

Breakfast: was decent, nothing too special but enough to get us going, the coffee was great!

Storage: They dont have a luggage storage facility, but when we left for several nights and came back they did let us keep our suitcases in reception (at our own risk), but we came back and they were still there, nothing missing from our cases.

Check out is Midday (I think) however my husband was feeling very unwell so they let us stay in our room till 4pm before we had to leave for the airport, and at no extra charge. They even came to the room to check on him and gave us some more bottled water at no extra charge.

Location: is handy to the markets and all the main shops and bars. However it is right beside where the monks live and we were woken at about 4am both mornings to their prayer chimes (which was very loud).

We would stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel several days. We preferred it as other hotels are too high priced in this town. We had room No. 7, which is the best room we have seen in this hotel. The rooms are clean and the staff is very nice. A little disadvantage is the breafast, which easily could be improved by serving state-of.the-art cafe latte.
We loved the woodel floors and the antique interior. We would certainly come back.

Room Tip: Room No. 7 is best. Stay more than 1 night? Ask for discount!

We stayed here for two nights following six nights at the Ramayana, also in Luang Prabang. It seems to me that some of your reviewers have succumbed to the dreaded fits of hyperbole. Descriptions of cave like rooms so dark that people were bumping into things seem a little far-fetched. If this is the case, a trip to the opticians may be in order. I was able to read my book with no problem, and this is coming from a person with only one eye! The rooms were small but comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The lack of television was a blessing.
The hotel is located on the main road that goes through the old town about five to ten minutes walk to the bars, cafes and night market.
The breakfast was adequate although you would be well advised to stick to the tea. Overall, for the money, this is a good hotel.
