“Charming and convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2009

Xieng Mouane is hidden down a little street in Luang Prabang. We were the only people there when we turned up, and thus got the "suite" room at a cheap price. This was a very big 2-room space, and pretty comfortable for what we were paying. The room was decent, although a little faded in terms of it's furniture etc - but very charming. The room was cleaned daily, and everything was pretty spick and span. The aircon was a wee bit hit and miss. Sometimes the air vents would fall closed and the air con would cool down nothing but itself!

The staff were all really friendly - always a smile whenever we saw them. While we were there, the bathroom door handle broke, fortunately one of us was not inside at the time as the door wouldn't open! The staff quickly organised a locksmith and all was sorted within an hour or so.

The location is good - a short stroll from the main street, and if you want to watch the monks collecting alms they go right past the front door (convenient for that 5:30am wakeup that you'll need to see it!). There is a wat right across the road as well, adding to the charm - just watch out for the monks banging that drum first thing in the morning!

Unfortunately there is no internet access or breakfast included - a shame as the pretty little garden courtyard would be a nice place to eat.

My wife and I stayed at Xiang Mouane GH for 10 days. The room was spacious and clean. There is no heat in the rooms but the heavy blankets kept us warm. We were in Luang Prabang in mid January and the evening and mornings were chilly. The Guest House had a charm of its own with a nice garden and two talking birds. The staff were helpful and the over all ambiance was special. For those looking for good value in a quiet location with friendly helpful staff this is a great place to stay.

  • Liked — The ocurtyard/garden
  • Disliked — No heat ifr those chiily evening and no TV.

We stayed 3 nights at Xieng Mouane Guesthouse, not in the main villa but in the building at the back. The guesthouse is really on the center of Luang Prabang, in a very quiet street.

The staff is friendly.

Our room was small, with view on the garden, and a nice decoration. it was very clean and pleasant, no air conditioning but a fan was enough for November.

The rooms in the main building are supposed to have more character with colonial style and wooden floors.

For 30 USD per night, the value was very good and I definitely recommend this place. For now, there is no breakfast, which is a pity, as the garden is nice.

  • Liked — Everything
  • Disliked — I would have prefer breakfast in the garden
