Luang Prabang is stunning place with a very colonial feel, this guesthouse echoes the same. The guesthouse is a lovely building away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms and facilities are very good and clean.The owner and staff were both very friendly and attentive. The guesthouse is a little out of the town, around 15-20mins walk, this is made easier with the bamboo bridge. Just check that it is available. Would recommend this place for a stay.

We recently stayed here for two nights and were very happy with our choice. The GH is extremely relaxing with a lovely open/covered area upstairs and attractive rooms. The staff are extremely friendly and upon checkout were all ready to walk into town for the start of a trip and the owner/manager offered to drive us - very kind and a welcome offer at 7.30am before a journey. As the bamboo bridge was not yet constructed it was a 15 min walk into town. Not an issue and of course they offer free bikes. I think he said they expect the walkway to be in place by the end of the month. All in all, highly recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a great stay. Good size room, air con worked well, descent curtains to keep the light out in the morning. Good breakfast provided and free bicycles you could use any time and all day to get to and from and around Luang Prabang. It is slightly out of the town but when the bamboo foot bridge is erected (which we believe is after the wet season is over) you are just a foot bridge away from the centre, if no footbridge the bikes obviously come in handy and it only takes about 5 minutes to get to the centre.

The staff are very helpful, you even get transfers to and from the hotel in a lovely luxury van, some staff English levels are a bit weak but you can get by. There is also wifi and if you need a computer to use the owner lets you use his laptop. Really enjoyed our stay.

Be aware that you can not use credit card to pay your accommodation, cash only.

The guesthouse is on a nice house, newly built, in french colonial style. Comfy clean rooms. Good breakfast, including juice, tea, (soluble) coffee, fruits + one set that you choose from many options that include lao style soup or other western choices...
Transfer to and from the airport is complimentary!
It's located across the river from the city of Luang Prabang, from witch it should be connected by a bamboo bridge (not there in november, by the time we went). However, the complimentary bikes they offer make it easy to reach the city center in ~ 5-10 minutes...

Fantastic guest house. Nice and friendly people, clean and neat rooms. Peaceful place.
Air-co and ventilations are in every room.
When it's raining, you can stay in middle of the guest house to read or chill.
The center is just a little walk. Restaurants and bars are 10 minutes from the guest house.

A must to stay in this guest house.

Friendly greeting,

Joram

My days here were probably the best days of all my three month trip. This is the most welcoming place I've stayed. The location is good, away from the crowds and traffic but still an easy walk or bike ride to where ever you want to go. The owner and his staff are most helpful and really go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible.
As the other reviewers have said the rooms are very nice, breakfast is excellent, the bikes are in very good condition, and if you need help with tours or sightseeing ideas the staff is there to help.
The only complaint I had was having to leave and start my return home.

Room Tip: The building is only two story and the stairs are large and easy no problems with baggage.

This guesthouse was a little pricier than other places we have stayed in SE Asia, but it was worth every penny for all the extras: delicious breakfast, free bicycles (in excellent condition; they even have wheel-powered lights for biking in the dark!), water bottles every day, very clean rooms, and exceptional service. We thought the location might be an issue because the bamboo bridge to downtown wasn't up yet, but in the end I think it was better that way: we were a one-minute walk from one of the best restaurants in town (Dyen Sabai) which I bet is a lot busier when the bridge is up, we got to see the monks' procession in the morning without any other tourists around, we got to ride across the coolest bike/motorbike bridge several times a day, the neighbourhood was nice and quiet, and downtown was still only a few minutes' bike ride away (i'm guessing about 1 km). I would most definitely stay here again!
