“Great location and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We stayed at this hotel in October for 3 nights. The hotel is very well located on the street corner on the river, only a short walk to the centre of town. The rooms are great for the price and very comfortable. The rooms a have a fridge and are well air conditioned. it was 35 degrees every day during our stay and our room was always comfortable. The breakfast at the nearby cafe was great. Dont be put off by the walk as it is only a short stroll. Special thanks to the very helpful girl on reception who helped me with my local SIM card. I could not get the internet data working on the SIM card I had bought and she generously gave me (free) a spare one she had that worked immediately. All I needed to do was top up the credit for 5000 kip (65c) to start making calls and sending international SMS's!! All in all, great value for the price.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs with verandas are great.

Very impersonal reception, uneven bed and for USD$45 a night there are better deals else where. Location wise is good though. The rooms have verandah but the view is not scenic except the street. So in terms of value, I would rate them as average. Breakfast is provided at a cafe nearby. My future visit will be else where.

Came for 5 days and stayed for 10. We got a large room top floor overlooking the Mekong for $35usd at nite, the price drops to this after 6.30pm.
Staff very friendly and helpful, great shower and bathroom, next door can get your laundry done for 10,000k per kilo.

Situated right on the riverside and close to cafes. Staff are helpful, internet available free in lobby. Breakfast is via a voucher redeemed up the road at a little cafe. Just a bit further up road is the spot to observe or take part in the daily early morning alms giving parade with at least a 100 monks. Recommend the river trip to the Pak Ou caves and many people enjoyed the elephant sanctuary where you get to wash the elephants. Children especially will love this. Easy to get these trips arranged at the hotel or at the many nearby travel shops. Bike hire opposite hotel is good idea although easy to walk to the markets etc. Would recommend, clean rooms and bathroom, laundry service.

A good, simple and clean hotel, along the street that follows the Mekong river.
You can have your breakfast in a "Cafe" just on the corner.

Stayed here for five nights during a very quiet week in Luang Prabang.

The place and the rooms look amazing and are very clean. Bathroom was great, although the shower lacked pressure. Staff was friendly and helpful. WiFi was present but extremely slow

Good place to stay if you want to spend the money (50$ a night)

Stayed here recently over Lao New Year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay by the Mekong in Luang Prabang.
