As all the other reviews have said, this is a great place to stay in Luang Prabang. I stayed in Chitdara 2 Guesthouse for 4 nights in the end of August. The guesthouse is in a very convenient and beautiful location. By just walking for 5 or so minutes you will get to the main road of the town - night market, cafes, restaurants. I would recommend renting bicycles in summer though just because it is much faster and it was no fun to walk around under blazing sun.
The river is right across from the guesthouse and you can have your breakfast by the river if not raining. Breakfast was simple but nice with strong coffee, baguette and some fruits.
Staff are very nice and speak good English. They got us welcome drinks and detailed map of the town as soon as we arrived. I had many questions and they were very willing to help beyond the regular hotel staff duties! The owner of the place has live in France for 30 years or so and I am sure his French is very fluent too. (Though I can't speak the language so I wouldn't know for sure) He took us for the giving ceremony in the morning and explained to us about the temples, religion and history of Laos, which was greatly appreciated.
Room was clean, well-maintained and has everything we needed for the trip - small TV, refrigerator, comfortable and clean beds. Cleaning service was very nice too. They actually have upgraded our garden-view room to a river-view room, which was really nice. I highly recommend river-view room if available.
I have only good things to say about the guesthouse and am looking forward to traveling in Laos again!
