“Nice guesthouse with a great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We stayed at 'Hoxieng Guesthouse 1' twice and really enjoyed our time there! The location is great - not only very close to the Mekong (we could even see it from our balcony on our second stay!) but also to the old town with the night market and all it's attractions.
WiFi worked mostly fine. Water, hot beverages and bananas are free! We stayed in two different double rooms and both were spacious with aircon, hot water and daily room service.
The family is really nice as well and so welcoming! They even got us some birthday candles for my boyfriend's birthday! :-) We would definitely stay here again!

Compared to the 2 other places we stayed at in Luang Prabang this was excellent.
It's very clean, and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We were only going to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 5. Free coffee, water and fruit, great sleep quality.
The shower was slightly difficult - water pressure is up and down so when it's down the shower cuts out for safety. But all in all this place is brilliant, I loved it. And WiFi was stable and good, not quite good enough for Skype but fine for everything else. we also stayed at The Liberty and The Symoungkoun, this place is heaps better than either of those.

We stayed at Hoxieng Guesthouse 1 for 4 nights. We got dropped off in the area by our tuktuk driver from the bus station. We wandered down the street asking for price and availability. The rate we got at Hoxieng 1 seemed to be in the average low range of prices for the area (20$/night). They have a sister guesthouse across the street which is fancier (35$/night). The location was great. Within walking distance to all attractions and restaurants and the street was quiet at night. We had a room on the second floor. It was spacious. The bed was on the comfy side for your typical SEA hard mattress. The room was clean but the bathroom was ready for a good scrub as there was a lot of spiderwebs and dust as well as lots of black mould on the shower curtain. The smell in the bathroom was also a little strange but manageable. We were provided with two complimentary bottles of water daily and there was always tea, coffee and bananas available. The wifi worked good for the most part. The AC also works great. We had our bus to Phonsavan arranged through the guesthouse and we were satisfied with the minivan service we got. Overall, it was a very good stay in a nice location at a fair price for the area.

We stayed in Hoxieng (1) for 4 nights while in Luang Prabang. The rate was reasonable but we didn't receive anything special for the money. The location was just fine, a short walk to the night market and main tourist street of town, and a quick walk to he river as well. The family was friendly enough after our initial awkward meeting upon arrival (they couldn't find our reservation, didn't communicate to us what the issue was, and seemed generally uninterested in us being there at all). We booked our transport to the Kuang Si waterfall through the front desk but couldn't really trust them enough with our bus ticket to Vang Vieng. There were power outages during the day but I don't think this was limited to our guesthouse. Our room was sufficient but here was a constant smell from the bathroom though. Otherwise the bed was comfortable and the room clean.

Arrived from Hanoi with nothing pre booked. Hoxieng 1 was full so stayed elsewhere but booked 3 nights from the next day. In the morning the room wasn't ready-plied us with tea/coffee & bananas!! Small but bright double room, spotless, good hot shower, v good value. Such a quiet, pretty lane, 2 mins from breakfast by the Mekong-25,000 for eggs bacon bread butter jam tea/coffee fruit/juice - don't need lunch! Top of lane JoMa 's bakery-mocha cake sugar fix!!! So nice we decided to stay for another 2 days-5 in all & it was a joy, v happy place to be in Luang Prabang. Jo B

We stayed in Hoxieng Guesthouse for three nights. It's a lovely guesthouse in a nice neighbourhood in Luang Prabang. The rooms were simple but clean, and big enough. Bathrooms were really basic, but with hot showers. The owners are really nice. Coffee and bananas are offered for free.
