Khem Khong
Ranked #25 of 269 Luang Prabang B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 8, 2008

View Khem Khong is OK, but not worth $25 USD. I rang the hotel a week ahead and was asked to confirm the day before. Not a problem. However, despite confirming the day before and on the morning of our arrival, they gave away our room! Their solution to this was to "create" a new room by converting their storage room into a hotel room. Whilst this solved the problem, it was less than ideal and not worth the price.

Situated on the Mekong River, this hotel is perfectly situated. Their best room, 909, has a balcony and costs between $60-70 depending what time of year you visit. The room is lovely and has all the comforts you could need including fridge and satelite TV channels.
The owners are very friendly and helpful. Their restaurant across the road overlooking the Mekong serves the breakfast included (which is copious) but does tend to shut early as most do along this stretch, making it a quieter area to stay.
Although there is no curfew, the owners do go to bed early (they work very hard) as do most people in Luang Prabang. There are few late night haunts to keep you out but if you do, the owners do not mind letting you in 24hrs.
This guesthouse is thoroughly recommended and you should ring in advance to book, as they have few rooms (despite having a room 909!!) and are regularly full.

Read about this spot in the Lonely Planet. Arrived from the airport in Luang Prabang and hoped for a room. We got the last one. This is a small guesthouse located right on the Mekong River. The owners speak English and are very helpful. There are about 10 rooms. The one we stayed at was small (basically, fit a queen size bed) but it had a nice private bathroom and is perfect for sleeping after a long day in Luang Prabang. It only cost $12 a night and was well worth it for clean sheets and it also has AC!
