Now I loved Luang Prabang. Such a beautiful calm little city.
And Meung Lao is the perfect place to stay. I won't harp on too much about the exceptional location, plenty have been said on this topic and its all true. The location is fantastic. I wouldn't stay anywhere else cos many of the other guest houses are based altogether so you will get a lot of street noise, especially as there are many young backpackers travelling there and they tend to get noisy at night after a few drinks...
No breakfast included wasn't a big deal as there are plenty of options nearby and everything is dirt cheap.
The rooms are big and comfy, we got the upstairs room right at the front it was great cos we had the I compromised corner view. Very lovely place. Highly recommend.
As always, things are never perfect and my usual gripes are with the bathroom.... Weirdly positioned shower that seemed to get everything wet. Not enough racks/ hooks on the wall that was away from the water and poor drainage. It was tricky having a shower cos the water was running too fast for the drain to cope and as there isn't a bathtub to catch the water.... It became tricky to manage the water flow so that it wouldn't flow outside of the bathroom! Also the water temperature was hard to maintain and control. Hot/cold, hot/cold.... It just couldn't make up its mind...
By yes, cute little place, with great staff. Not all spoke English well but they do try to help where they can. I like that.
