We've stayed at Ock Pop six nights and it was a very good experience. We got a non-view room and it was well decorated with textiles from their factory (which is in the villa also), windows that open, comfy bed, a jar of water everyday. The room is not very big and has no TV or fridge, but it wasn't a problem. Everything was very good taste and delicate. Bathroom was also nice, with amenities and good shower. Room also has a great lightning system, what we appreciated. It's very cozy and clean.
The place itself is sweet, with river views, lots of opportunities to take pictures from the local artisans, textiles store and a nice restaurant serving tasty plates at lunch (unfortunately they don' open at night, but can order delivery for you). Breakfast was by order and very good, their baguette and tamarind juice were delicious!
The villa is a 15 minute by bike from the city and 5 min by tuk tuk. They have some bikes that you can use for free. Only one day we had a problem with some annoying guests who decided to keep the bikes for the whole day - I was very angry because we told the staff in advance that we're going to use the bikes that afternoon (we had an appointment at city) and they were nice enough to call a tuk tuk for us, for free.
Staff is very nice, speak good english and gave us a great restaurant recommendation (blue lagoon).
The place is not cheap in comparison with other hotels in Luang Prabang, but worth paying if you like arts and want to enjoy a charming place while in charming luang prabang. Highly recommend.
