Henri and Kham run this place as a professional business. They gave me a local phone with their numbers on speed dial should I need them, other than that I could also choose my privacy. The internet works, and they supply tea and real coffee. The upstairs apartment is the better of the two in my opinion, brighter and with a small balcony and view. There are some basic shops very nearby for food and beer. It is a 10 minute walk into town, or a $2 tuk tuk. Moto rental is about $13/day so much more than Thailand and Cambodia for example, though still worth it. LP is a great base.
We had a great stay! Luang Prabang was our last stop in Laos, and we had just had a negative experience at our previous guesthouse and Henri and Kham's hosting and apartment was like a lovely haven, rescuing our holiday feeling! The apartment is fantastic! Spotless, fully equipped modern design, colours and furniture, tasteful and comfortable! Splendid views from the balcony too! The bed was very comfy, the shower great, fluffy towels a washing machine- generally the best spot in Laos for me! The kind, thoughtful hosting is a large part of the positive, Henri collected us in town when our bus driver wouldn't drop us, they provided a mobile to contact them if we needed it, they gave us great advice on the sights, prices to pay tuk tuks and other great local info. They also very kindly let us leave our bags, and then wait for our flight long after checkout time. It was really nice to be in a more local area rather than in the touristy parts, we really enjoyed experiencing the rhythm of regular people. If you don't like walking remember you are about 15 to20 mins walk from the centre, but it is easy, just avoid the heat of the day, or catch a tuk tuk. It was fantastic to have drinking water provided too, and we enjoyed the shutters and fans-didnt need aircon much! I highly recommend this lovely apartment, and wish Henri-Pierre and Kham lots of success, they are delightful people. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Home from home. One of the best put together apartments we've rented in South East Asia. Most have usually been lacking a few things but here you have everything you could possibly need. Like an oven so you can cook roast beef or a casserole through to free coffee & water so you don' have to go out looking for your 1st morning fix.
Just sit at home watching the morning mist roll down the mountains to the rear. The location is is excellent, a 5 min walk to Phousi food market to buy all your supplies & 10 min walk to the main tourist drag.
Excellent & well thought out.
One of the best places we've stayed. The bed is super comfortable, the kitchen is very well-equipped, the AC will keep you cool at night, and the view of the surrounding hills is perfect. The apartment is a 5-minute tuk tuk ride to the city center. It's quiet, friendly, and safe. There are roosters, dogs, and kids going to school in the morning. There's also a grill setup in the afternoon with delicious sausages just a few feet from the front door. Henri and Kham are super helpful and responsive. If you need a scooter or motorbike, they'll help you out. If you want to go give alms to the monks (you should do that), Kham will get up and go with you and tell you about the tradition.
One of the best experiences I've had with season rentals. The owners are very attentive, the apartment is beautiful, clean and well maintained. I recommend it and if one day return to Laos I will stay at this place again. Thank you for all!
We spent a while looking for hotels in Laos but couldn't find what we needed - so we went to Airbnb and found Henri's apartment. This truly represents, to us, the best value for money place to stay in Luang Prabang. The apartment was modern and spotless, the bathroom was clean and new, the bed was soft and comfortable. Down the road was some Lao BBQ with the best sausages EVER; and we even had the benefit of housekeepers who cleaned up midway (which for this price we did not expect but were extremely grateful for) and lots and lots of drinking water (which even 5* hotels sometimes do not provide). In the bathroom there were all the toiletries you would need including toothbrushes and laundry is provided for as well as a very handy mobile phone which we used to make reservations and call Henri etc.
Henri is a very friendly guy and we were very happy that he took such great care of us. We would highly recommend his apartments and will absolutely be back! :-)
We stayed 1 night at Herni's apartment. The decoration is very cosy and comfortable, and the bathroom has a great shower.
Henri and his wife are extremely attentive and helped us with any need we had in our stay there.
The location is not in the city center but easily reachable by foot or scooter (Henri was very kind to provide us with good rent a motorbike service).
