We stayed in this charming guest house for a total of 5 nights and were very satisfied with everything. Souk Lan Xang is a small family run guest house with very friendly and competent service. There was always at least one person present who spoke good English, so communication was never an issue.
Our room was very clean and cleaned daily upon request, had a comfortable bed, good AC and a TV with some cable movie and news channels in English, as well as a WiFi connection (that could have been a little faster but was okay). Two small complementary water bottles were provided on a daily basis.
The guest house was also very well located in historic Luang Prabang, close to Wat Nong and next to the Mekong River. It is in a quiet back alley, indicated from the main street along the Mekong only by a little signpost. If you are interested in seeing the monks collecting alms in the early morning, you just need to walk around the corner past Wat Nong to the central main street. Both handicraft and night markets are within walking distance, as well as plenty of restaurants and travel agencies.
For all the above reasons Souk Lan Xang is also very good value, with breakfast included (only the fruit platter could be a little more generous). We would definitely stay there again.More
