Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a nice stay at Philaylack Villa. I was hanging with some budget travelers I met on the slow boat and they thought it was a bit too expensive, but I thought it was great value (they were very young and on a tight budget). The room was a very nice size and had some character to it. I felt quite comfortable here. The staff were very welcoming and even allowed my friends to use their WiFi. Also, the location was nice and it is a short walk to several dining options. Only two slight negatives about the stay, but only one of these the staff can do much about. I agree with a previous poster about mosquitoes. However, I just made sure to never open my windows or back door and did not get many in my room. Second, make sure to get back before curfew (there is a loosely enforced curfew in town)! I went out a bit late on two occasions and they had locked up the front gate. Somehow, I was able to awake the front desk guy, who just lays out a tent in the lobby and sleeps there…lol. But I was worried for a moment I would not be able to get back in.

It was a good hotel, we got the best room with the balcony so can't really talk for the other rooms. It was a bit worn down but everything worked. BUT there was a LOT of mosquitos in the room and in the hallway at night, would recommend the hotel to put up a mosquito net over the bed. Fair prices for renting bicycles and motorbikes!

Stayed here twice, first for 3 nights (double room) and later that week for 1 night (twin room). Both rooms were pretty much the same (except for the bed); not too small, clean, comfortable bed and asian style shower setup. Staff are friendly and helpful (helped us booking bus tickets and renting a scooter). Location is good, within walking distance of the main area (night market) and very close to the river. Would recommend.

The location of this Villa is convenient, near the night market and riverside and also if you want to watch the alm-giving ceremony, it is also very nearby too. The facilities are good and strong and consistent hot water with relatively good wifi. Towels are changed everyday so you don't have to worry about that. Overall a very comfortable stay.

Located 500 meters only from Luang Prabang Night Market and less than 150 meter to Alms Giving Ceremony location, this modest affordable hostel is surprisingly clean and comfy. This hostel's rooms are large with private fair size bathroom. The hostel's location is still walk-able to many interesting destinations in Luang Prabang. The hostel also have affordable sharing shuttle mini bus facilities to Kuang Xi Waterfall and tuk-tuk facilities to airport. Rental bicycles are available as well. My point plus to this hostel also given to the staffs whom were so nice and helpful.

The Philaylack Villa is located in the centre of Luang Prabang, within 2 minutes walking distance of the Night Market and 1 minute to the riverside. It features clean, beautiful wooden rooms that are cleaned every day. Each day you also get new towels, two bottles of water, a roll of toilet paper and a set of shower soap. The villa also offers a bicycle renting service for 10.000 kip (approx. 1 euro). The staff is very friendly and eager to help. The villa is locked down with a gate every night for safety but guests can ring a bell to enter. You also have to remove your shoes before entering which makes the place more hygienic. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

Easy to find and about 5 min walk from the post office, tourist center and night market. Excellent value for money for backpackers as the place is clean, spacious room and with hot shower, very helpful receptionist and good wifi connection. They have bicycle or motorbike for rent, priced fairly. The Villa along with the community is charming and quiet. Reception can arrange tours for Kuang si Waterfalls, cave or even booking for bus so its hassle free. Stayed for 2 nights. Overall, this villa added to the pleasant and magical stay in Luang Prabang where you can just walk or bicycle to wherever your heart desire.

It locates just 3 mins walk from city and night market. I like the way that hotel decorates the room, looks charming. It is very clean. The price is reasonable. I have stayed at this place for 4 times.

Room was not the newest but was really clean. Hot water, AC and fan, free wifi. They even have a water dispenser outside that you can refill your bottles from for free if you ask. Location is great, really close to the mekong river and the night market. They have a tour desk to book tours to the waterfalls, cave etc and buses to other destinations. We took a bus to Nong Khiaw for 70k kips.
