“Centrally Located & Small (6 Rooms)”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

This is a small (6 rooms), family run establisment located off the main street in LP. We stayed in the rooms upstairs as previous reviews had noted the lower rooms can be slightly noisy with footfall but to be honest you will be woken by the roosters at 5am. The rooms are dark (I think this is the case in a lot of the accommodation in LP) but the beds are very comfortable with plenty of hot water for the shower. The breakfast was adequate and is served in the courtyard. The owner is friendly and helpful. We arranged our own mini van trips to the waterfall (50,000 Kip) and to Nong Khiaw (80,000 Kip) via a travel agency next to the Post Office (both were very good and worth using).

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are carpeted to reduce noise transfer to those people staying in the rooms below...

Our family of three stayed at Lao Wooden house for 6 nights. It is central enough to be walking distance to most of the things you want to get to, but off the main strip, so it was quiet. We concur that Vong and his family are extremely helpful and did many things to make our stay easier, including a trip out to the Kuang Si Falls with a special stop at the newly founded Butterfly Farm and arranging a packed breakfast for our slow-boat trip. We would absolutely recommend this place.

This is a small hotel with just six rooms. The owner cannot do enough for you. We had him arrange tours for us and even drive us to the Waterfall and Bear sanctuary. The breakfast is freshly prepared and served in the nicely decorated courtyard. It is very central and even the morning parade of monks (at sunrise) passes by the front gate. The only drawback is if you have a lower level room the noise of the people walking on the floor above can be quite intrusive. Overall a great little hotel run by great people. I would certainly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the upper floor

My family (including two teenagers) recently stayed for five nights at Lao Wooden House. It is a charming guesthouse with just six rooms. It is located in a quiet street and is an easy walk to both the rivers, the night market and all of the restaurants. The guesthouse is owned by Vong and his family who were extremely welcoming and very attentive. Vong is very efficient and happily organised a number of outings for us. The rooms are comfortable and clean and a good size and the price is very reasonable. As others have mentioned, there is a peaceful courtyard where breakfast is served and gorgeous verandahs where you can relax after a day's activities. I would highly recommend this guesthouse and would definitely go there again if we ever have the chance to return to the wonderful Luang Prabang.

My husband and I just returned from a five week trip to Cambodia and Laos. The last week we spent at the Lao Wooden House and we loved every minute of our stay there. The location could not be better as we seemed a world away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist attractions but it was actually just a short block to either the center of town or the riverfront shops and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and generally served on the very pretty front brick patio....juice, fresh fruit, bread that was delivered every morning, eggs, and ham if you would like. Almost right across the street their is a small convenience store, a laundry, and a place where you can get a traditional Lao massage. All in all our week in Luang Prabang was a wonderful experience and, if we are very fortunate, we will go back again and stay at the Lao Wooden House!!

Service was excellent, from the owner and his family who were very friendly and could not do enough for you. Breakfast was freshly made every morning in the court yard which had a peaceful atmosphere. The building itself has lots of history and original features, rooms were comfortable and clean. Location is central close to river and night market. Great value for money advertised as a 2 star but more like a 3 star - thank you for a lovely memorable visit.

Stayed at Villa Lao Wooden House for 4 nights, and loved it. The traditional wooden house is beautiful, and has a quaint little courtyard that is perfect for starting the early morning in a restful manner. The guesthouse is in a perfect location---easily walkable to all restaurants, night market, and both riverfront areas. The staff are quite helpful, and Mr. Vong in particular is hospitable and willing to drive guests around (for a fee) in his truck.
