Booked this room the day before on agoda at a cheap price. It's not really walking distance from the main tourist area, so it could be a positive or negative depending how you look at it. We didn't want to be surrounded by a lot of people so it was a positive for us. Since it's a family run hotel away from the main area, there is no free shuttle from the airport and some taxis may not know how to get there. So if you do book with them, print out a map and/or phone number so they can drop you off. If you want to go to the night market, they will provide tuk tuk service and call one of their contacts to come get you and drop you off for free.

As for the hotel itself it's pretty clean, quiet and comfortable. Air conditioning worked and I have no complaints about hot water, although I don't remember it being very hot by western standards. I stayed in the standard room and it was fine for me. While it was in a quieter part in town, there actually was a rooster next door that was making some noise during the day and there's a crazy lady across the street who sings loudly when she gets drunk, but those are things the hotel can't control and will change day to day.

Best asset of this hotel is the friendly staff, but that may be the case with me since I speak Lao. The owner is a nice woman who you'll see walking around taking care of daily maintenance. She chatted it up with my mom and told her how they know they can raise their price on rooms, but like to keep it affordable. The reception desk is run by her son who loves technology and will befriend you on facebook and/or skype if you have an account. There is free wifi, but reception is spotty and strongest in the restaurant in the back where you can sit for free. They'll even bring out water or orange tang for you too. In the mornings there's free breakfast which wasn't outstanding, but since it was free it was good.

Full disclosure - when I signed onto skype 2 months after my stay, the manager asked me to rate his hotel on here, which I am happy to do and recommend to others. Would stay here again.

I would highly recommend going to Vangsavath hotel not only was the service excellent, but the food was unique and delicious. They offered generous proportions and the staff was helpful when I needed directions getting around town. For transportation they have free "Tuk Tuk's" (three wheel taxi’s) to take you around Luang Prabang. The Tuk Tuk was exhilarating because I’ve never been on anything like that before. There are motorcycles available as well if you prefer to travel alone. The exterior of the hotel is beautiful as well as the interior. Vangsavath has an exquisite garden and is one of my favorite places to read. It was peaceful and I love plants and animals. It was a little place I could go outside to clear my thoughts and enjoy a good book. The room I stayed in was gorgeous. When I stepped outside onto the balcony I viewed the beautiful scenery of mountains. I loved the Jacuzzi and bathtub. It was quaint yet relaxing. There is free wifi included in your stay which is convenient. Overall my stay at Vangsavath was terrific and I hope your stay will be as pleasant as mine.
