The boss is horrible. You can feel it when he enters the room, all the staff have to change. They become tense and unfriendly, as if terrified of doing anything wrong.
Luckily the boss is barely ever there.
The room was okay, but the bathroom stank. Luckily we had air freshener to make showers bearable.

This place was totally awesome. Room was clean, bathroom flawless, price cheap, service was even better. We rented bicycles from there for the whole day and return without a problem but had to give up our passport to them. We were treated very well. I guess treat others the way you want to be treated.

Worst stay in Laos.

Managment was rude and unhelpful. When we had a problem, the manager got so angry with us that he started shaking. A fuss blew when we plugged in our computer (used the plug all over Asia without problem - its the right voltage). The manager accused us of opening the fuse box (which was screwed shut -- and no, we did not unscrew it, mess around with it and then call the manager), told us it was very expensive, and then threatened to make us pay for it because he thought it was our fault. He wanted to kick us out of the guesthouse at this point because he said we were so much trouble, even though we had paid.

Bathroom smelled awful. It was so bad we had to open the doors to the room to try and air it out. It got worse throughout our stay.

Front desk staff was also not helpful and couldn't explain their policies (like why you had to leave your key, but the hotel didn't have a safe).

On the plus side, the room was ok (if you could get over the smell, which I couldn't) and was in a good location. But please, don't stay here. Managment treats its guests horribly.

The front desk staff was very helpful and attentive. They attended to all our needs. -- The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a good shower. -- It was easy to walk and bike to local attractions and restaurants. -- Free Wifi is available in the lobby with a coupon from the front desk..We were very satisfied with this accommodation. - My only "complaint" would be that the bikes could not be rented by the hour or half day. We had to rent for a full day.

( We arrived in Luang Prabang a day earlier than expected. We were not able to find a vacant room....even after searching for 3 hours. -- We had reservations at ThanaBoun for the following 3 nights so went there to ask for help. The desk manager was sympathetic. He called his brother. His brother arrived and took us to a friend with a small room available. We were very grateful to be off the street during the Chinese New Year celebration. When we checked into ThanaBoun the following day, we received the same level of great service.)

The room I ended up staying in was really nice. Double bed (comfy) with ensuite and spacious. Location very convenient. The shower curtain needs a change, the shower head could be higher up, and the floor was a bit dusty but otherwise good.

At the very beginning the owners didn't seem very friendly so I do agree with other reviewers, but I liked the room, and they seemed ok enough so I decided to stay. They were quite good after a while and helpful when there was internet connection problem.

If you want a good room, fuss-free and good location, this is a good place to stay. If you want great service and lots of smiles, then it's not.

Room Tip: I don't know what the other rooms are like, but my double room was upstairs and had a double (queen?) four-poster bed. The window also lets in natural light. I liked having cable TV and internet connection is good there.
