We spent a lot of time searching for accommodation in Luang Prabang before we finally plumped for Phasith Guest House.
The guest house is supposed to be quite new although it didn’t look like a recent construction. Nevertheless, our room was spacious, had good air-conditioning, a television with a choice of English language channels, and, best of all, a balcony with views of the Nam Khan River. The guest house was also quiet despite being close to a number of restaurants including the recommended House which serves good breakfasts.
There were some negatives. The room looks quite clean at first but on closer inspection there are areas that have not been cleaned for a while. Also, while staff were friendly we sometimes had to remind them several times in order to get them to carry out tasks. Furthermore, we suspect that maintenance is not a high priority as some repairs were needed despite this supposedly being a new property.
At the moment this is a good place to stay if you are not too fussy about cleanliness or you can persuade the staff to clean to a proper standard. We would probably have stayed for the duration of our time in Luang Prabang but decided to move when we found out all rooms had been booked for a few days hence.More
