Villa Saykham was not my favorite hotel in Southeast Asia. In fact, I'd only mark it down as "okay."

The good:
- Location was great, on a quiet side street in the middle of town and right on the route where the monks walk each morning.
- Breakfast had limited options but the omelet was cooked to perfection, no easy feat!

The bad:
- Room was dark and smelled a bit musty/moldy
- WiFi did not work in the rooms and barely worked in the courtyard. Could perform only the most basic functions, such as check email and glance at a few light-load sites.
- Most of front desk staff did not speak English. Even those who did, could not really help with tour suggestions and travel arrangements.

LOVED Luang Prabang. Just wish my hotel was a bit nicer.

Lovely hotel with well appointed rooms which were spotlessly clean...air con, mini fridge, cable TV and a smart bathroom with plenty of hot water...it looks recently put together and well maintained...
Fantastic location...quiet on a side road but a few metres from the main street on the peninsular...the monks pass the front as they collect their alms in the mornings..lots of bars, restaurants, shops and the night market nearby...
Breakfast was served in a courtyard in the open and eggs cooked to order..fairly basic but good enough...
The hotel was near to a temple and our room was located right next to it but we did not hear anything during our stay...
This place is rightly very popular...so much so we would have stayed a week but had to move as they were full...
Highly recommended...

Booked on Agoda 60usd per night for triple room for 3 nights, arrived at 4pm to find that they are booked out and sent us down to their low-grade hotel down the road for the first night only, which was dirty and small. Receptionist very apologetic, it was not her fault.
Breakfast nice in the courtyard, stay seated as they bring the food to you.
We stayed next two nights above reception as none of the nice villas available at the back. Room was good, great to be so close to the Monks, we could watch from our room and the drums did not bother us.
Excellent location, close to Mekong, town and night market.

Visited: November 2010

We stayed multiple nights. The room was very clean and comfortable with nice wood floors and good air conditioning. It was on the 2nd floor with 3 sides of windows and the bathroom had a bathtub. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a refreshing drink. The location couldn't have been more convenient. It's on a quiet side street a few buildings from the main road, yet it was within walking distance to everything (monks collecting alms in the morning, restaurants, shops, temples, market). The staff were friendly and kept the place very clean. A very comfortable place to stay at reasonable rates in Luang Prabang!

There are a lot of overpriced hotels in Luang Prabang, certainly if you compare LP with Chiang Mai. So, carefully select your hotel or B&B in this city. Villa Saykham gives value for your money.
We stayed here for 4 nigths at 55$/night including breakfast, november 2011, after slowboat trip from Thailand. Centrally located but quiet in a side street, 400m from Royal Palace and other temples, 100m from Mekong river. Villa Saykham opened in 2007 : 2 blocks, each of the blocks ground level and first floor, total : 10 double and 5 triple rooms. Although our room was not particularly large (25m²), the room was super clean, bright and comfortable. Good and clean bed, sheets and pillows. Silent airco, fridge, TV CNN. Free WIFI. Very clean and good bathroom. Good make-to-order breakfast in open secluded courtyard.
Concering the drums in the wat at 4.00AM : during my other visits to Thailand I think that drums are only used during 2 early mornings of fullmoon (and possibly also during new moon).
