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.
