We arrived in Luang Prabang at 6 AM with no prior arrangements. After checking out multiple places in the backpacker hub we headed toward the peninsula. Just as we were about to give up a friendly face appeared and asked un-aggressively if we might need a room. A quick walk through and we fell in love with this place!
Thida is run by a WONDERFUL family who does everything in their ability to make you feel welcome and taken care of. The rooms beautiful, immaculate, and absolutely secure, and the complimentary coffee, tea, and fruit on the upstairs terrace is a charming detail. The location turned out to be perfect; off the backpacker path but very convenient proximity to everything else. There is also free wifi- whenever it would disconnect they were right on top of getting it back up and running.
While slightly more (100,000 kip/room) than the mattress-in-a-box places on the other side of town, it is absolutely worth it, as the quality surpasses those places exponentially. We intended on staying 2 nights, but extended up to 4.
Overall, a lovely place to stay in a beautiful town.
*They originally put us in a room upstairs, then apologized and insisted we move to a bigger one downstairs because they were concerned the construction next door would be a bother. Very thoughtful people.
