As you walk around Luang Prabang, you will notice that there are many guesthouses with a charming exterior that look immaculately clean. I won't say that Villa Chitdara 2 is the best guesthouse in town, but it is certainly a great place to stay. The location is hard to beat - it is on the Mekong side of town within short walking distance of everything and has second-floor rooms that overlook the river (request one of these). Breakfast is served on a little patio across the street directly above the river. The room and bathroom were well furnished and always clean. One time, much to my embarrassment, I tracked some dirt through the guesthouse. I went back a few minutes later to apologize and inform Vong, the owner, but it was already all cleaned up.
As others have noted, Vong is extremely nice, very helpful and will assist you with whatever you need. You should certainly take him up on his offer to watch the alms-giving at 6am. He also organized a sunset cruise for us.
Breakfast is good but pretty standard by SE Asia standards - you get a drink, fruit, fresh baguette, and eggs (including omelette). The WiFi can be pretty unreliable as well.
