5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Good location,near by the main streent in Luang Prabang.and It’s only about 5 mins walk from Wat Xieng Thong.
We spend 5 nights in Symoungkoun.Every mornig you can weak up in the temple alms, and just walk out to the GH you can watch the monks collecting the alms. The room, alought very simple, but is clean and bright. Breakfast is not served. and no hair dryer >< that’s really Inconvenient for girls.The house keeper is very frindly. Alought he seems to not talk well in english, but still do his job well.We all very enjoy this trip, and really thanks Symoungkoun’s people a lot.

我們五個人是在2012年1、2月到龍坡邦6天自助行 全程都是住在Symoungkoun這家民宿 房間屬於簡單 較小 但非常明亮 乾淨 管理人員非常和善 可以用簡單的英文 加 一些肢體動作 來溝通 沒有吹風機是我們覺得唯一不方便的地方 有冷氣、電視、有熱水可以洗澡 沒有早餐提供 可以租腳踏車、機車
住在這間民宿真的是很棒 位置相當的好 清晨可以聽到寺廟的鐘鼓聲、讀經聲,民宿網頁上介紹有名的僧侶托缽 真的就在民宿前 你只要早點起床 就可以看到。另外 很有名的景點如相通寺( Wat Xieng Thong )就在附近 走路只要5、6分鐘就可以到(只可惜 我們去的時候 它正好正在大整修)
我們非常享受這次的旅行 玩的很開心 感謝Symoungkoun民宿的朋友幫忙 強力推薦

We spent 2 nights in this guest house. The room is clean and price is reasonable. Sometimes there was no eletricity & water in the afternoon but it does come back short while. Good location, we enjoyed cycling at morning across the street & near the river. The staff is nice & helpful.

I love the place which faces Symoungkoun Wat, every morning I can see the morning alms in front of the guesthouse. It's also near from the market, many Wats, National Museum and Mt. Phousi. The people there are nice, they are so helpful, thanks KC and staffs!

Room Tip: if you want to see the monks parade, then choose the front room, but abit noisy in the morning (bell...

It cost 120k Kip or USD15 for a twin bed room.

We stay one night and decided to move to another guesthouse based on 2 reason, first the price is out of our budget and the price that paid is not really worth the value. Second, the water is very small and always run out of water especially in the afternoon.

Overall, the staff is nice and helpful. Room is clean. The major issue is the toilet. Unless you don't bath else you might facing short of water. The shower water is super super small (not sure is it only the room I stayed), but this guesthouse water supply is base on the water level which around 6pm only can get water if you finished the water earlier than 6pm, you have to wait.

Location consider fine. Advantage is near to the temple which you can wake up early to see the monk walk pass infront of the guesthouse.

Everything is good, beside the water and the worth of value. Water is very important to me ! :p

We stayed here after arriving pretty late in Luang Prabang due to slow boat breakdowns.
We were a group of 4 and the manager agreed to let us have a triple room for 160,000kip - so 40,000 each.
The beds were comfy enough & the room & bathroom clean enough. The sheets were somewhat threadbare and the shower wasn't hot but after 45mins of looking we were just glad of a bed for the night. Also, if like me the mozzies love your blood, there aren't mozzie screens on the windows.
Free tea, coffee & water apparently - though we forgot to chek this out. Check out time in the room stated as 12 noon but a sign on the stairs says 11:30 - if you stay here I'd double check with the staff........
Good view of the Monks' alms parade from the street side windows.
Not sure if reccommed this place, but I wouldn't avoid it.
