“Pleasant staff member but rooms need some work.”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Sok xay thone Resort, Luang Namtha. Tel.: 856 86 212 078; www.sokxay-thone-resort.com

Luang Namtha is just starting to develop its tourist industry. We stayed in this hotel for two nights in January 2012 on a recent tour of the tribal villages in the area. The hotel is set in a park-like setting in the city. The rooms are in bungalow style, with two rooms to a unit. Unfortunately the appearances are somewhat deceiving. Our room (as were all of the others used by our group) was very cold and damp. The hotel does provide extra duvets to keep warm at night. The temperature in mid-January was about 3 to 4 degrees at night. So we sure needed those extra duvets. The room was large enough with a nice deck facing the inner courtyard. The bathroom was very small but with a separate shower. It could have used a real good cleaning. Hot water was the biggest problem. Either it was scalding hot so as to be dangerous or very cold when people started to use it. For example I was lathered up in the morning shower with nice hot water when it turned ice cold. Breakfast consisted of eggs, a small loaf of bread and Lao coffee – thick and very strong.

One staff member, a young man, could speak English. He was very pleasant and helpful. He made our stay more enjoyable by being so available. For example on arrival he had all of our keys ready for us. He looked after us at breakfast. He helped with the hot water problem. In other words he was the go-to person and he smiled and provided assistance with pleasure. He seemed genuinely pleased that our group was staying there and was a credit to the hotel.

Laos is underdeveloped and very poor in this area. So this hotel is probably a good choice to make when in Luang Namtha. It served its purpose.
