Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights. The room is really good sized. We had the ground floor which was very convenient. The morning alms is just next to the hotel. The morning market and night bazaar turn right. The mekong river and river front restaurants turn left. Both sides just 2 mins walk.

There is a money exchange just opposite the hotel. Turn right and it is located just next to the lane where the morning market is.

Service is great. Friendly staff. They have awesome helpful reception be it night or morning staff. Pricing is reasonable.

Right next door is safron cafe. Really good coffee place. They are open at 7am.

Only con is that the bathroom has a funny smell. The management should seriously do something about it.

I stayed in the new building which fronts the street and paid 25$/night, I was very happy with the room , looks very new and clean, good wifi in room and location can't be beaten, steps away from the Mekong River and its multitude of restaurants and the Night Market at the other end of the street. While it's true that the staff are not service oriented, I think it's more a case of being unfamiliar with speaking English, whenever I asked them they tried to help and were always friendly. I had booked 4 nights in advance and ended up staying 2 extra nights and would stay again. LP is a great place.

Room Tip: stay in the new building

We were in the new building, which is apparently much nicer than the old. Our room was totally adequate: decent air conditioning, terrace access, TV and warm water in the shower. The entire building (including the room) was poorly lit, giving it a dirtier look. Although the staff was friendly and tried to help us, it was tough because they spoke almost no English. The location is good, although the town is small, so pretty much anywhere in the old city is in a good location. For less than $20 per night, we got what we expected.

To stop the bathrooms smelling in cheap guesthouses turn off the extractor fan after use! The laws of physics says that if you leave air being blown out of a room then air will need to enter the room from somewhere. If the only place available to supply this air is the drain then you can expect some nasty smelling air!

This guest house is no exception!

The rooms are big and the beds were comfy. The room was made up and towels renewed every day.

Do not book travel here though. We booked a mini-van to the waterfall and the driver tryed to squeeze 13 people in 9 seats so we got out and walked back. The staff at the guest house thought this was all very funny and only offered a 50% refund after a bit of a stand-off.

Overall, worth the room rate, just don't book anything with hotels.

I stayed here Three nights, First of two nights i staying at the old building the room have window but not good view. The third night I moved to new building every thing is ok except the staffs. I think that they not have service mind.

The room clean the location is perfect because the Mekong river is only far away 50 meters.
Near the local morning coffee shop "Pracha Niyom" I walk to there every morning.

BAD Topic. I request and then getting an email confirmation about pick up transfer from Lung Prabang airport to hotel. When i arrived and I wait at the meeting point but nobody to pick up me. 30 minutes passed I decide to catch a shuttle van to the hotel. I paid 200 THB per two persons. This rate is same price as the hotel quoted us. Please do not make appointment with them, I believe the you will go to the hotel by yourself with non expensive transportation.

I stayed 1-4 May, 2013

Room Tip: If possible please choose upstairs at new building standard double room# 4 or 5.
