“For a nice and decent Home stay experience”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

I have stayed in Vanvisa Guest house for more than 2 weeks. I suggest this place for budget travelers of all kind. If you want to have home stay experience with Lao hospitality, this is a good place. The vanvisa family are very very nice and warm hearted especially Madam Vandara and the little cutie Pepsi. The tariff is reasonable and you will get the comfort of what you have paid for. The rooms are bit small but it is clean and with good wi-fi connection. Moreover it is only 5 to 10 minutes walk to the city center and restaurants. If you are a person who likes the slow pace of life, appreciate the goodness of people and careful in spending- then this is your place. You can trust my review.

Room Tip: Rooms in the first floor has more privacy. In Vanvisa 2 the Balcony is much better that the Vanvisa...

We were booked in but when we arrived at 9.00pm our room was not ready and we were told to go away and come back in an hour then maybe our room would be free. Someone was sleeping in the entrance and there were various hangers on watching tv. Plus the place stank. Needless to say we walked away and hopefully we will get a refund for the three days we have paid

Room Tip: Avoid it like the plauge

I had booked a double bed on top floor, and was given a twin bed on ground floor(noisy!).I was told I would be given the correct room the following day, buit this never happenned. Also the room had not been cleaned ever during the stay!
I had booked an airport transfer as this was apparently offered by hotel. When I got to Luang Prabang, nobody was at airport, and taxi had no idea as to where the guesthouse was located
Again location was given as town center on Agoda. That is town center after you have been walking for 15 minutes. Location not good either!
highly NOT recomended!!!

A Guesthouse with no breakfast possibilities, WiFi only in the entrance area, no AC, it is authentic to see four generations live under one roof; yet the rooms on the ground floor are pretty narrow and sticky. Rooms upstairs a bit better, yet in the end we did not get it why this place should deserve special mentioning in tour guides

Room Tip: Get rooms upstairs, they are spacier and have real windows

I found Vanvisa through the Lonely Planet and booked in advance of arriving at Luang Prabang. I ended up staying just 1 night as I felt it was over priced and the location was not ideal.
