Alounsavath Guesthouse
Ranked #44 of 268 Luang Prabang B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 March 2012

If you are looking for a great location, value for money and fantastic owner and staff, this is the place. I especially loved eating breakfast overlooking the Mekong River, which is right across the street where the dining area for breakfast is located or you can enjoy the table and chairs for lounging and watching life go by...The owner is outstandingly helpful in getting boat reservations or just overall information...Wish we could have had one of the front rooms, but given how popular the place is (thank you TripAdvisor), we couldn't arrange a nine night stay for two rooms. Our rooms were clean, comfortable, but quite dark. Who wants to spend time in the room anyway!...Be sure to book a head as we saw numerous travelers turned away. There are only seven or so rooms.

Room Tip: Two rooms upstairs have balconies and if you have a chance book one.

Experience a front room to feel the peacefulness of the city and the beauty of the river. Would stay there again. The staff was most accommodating.

we stayed 4 nights in room 7 on the ground floor facing the Mekong river. The room is very nice with a kingsize bed. The room is on the street but we had no problems with noise. We enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the river. The people are indeed friendly, but the service could be better.

Room Tip: book room 1 or 2 if available

Spent 4 nights here with my family. The 2 rooms with balconies look right out over the river. The location is perfect: 2 blocks from the main street, but still located on a quiet block across from the river. One thing I want to add is how nice the people are. One of us got sick and the staff (they are all related) drove us to the local hospital (which is a whole other story in itself) and made sure that the hospital staff provided treatment. This was above and beyond and was greatly appreciated. Check your bill, however. I think the people are very honest, but they do not have the best record-keeping system. There are just little pieces of paper and notes in a paper book. If you pay one person for something it may still show up on your bill later. I found this throught Southeast Asia, and they made mistakes in my favor as well so I am sure the mistakes were unintentional.

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it.
The rooms with the balconies are spacious, clean and comfortable.
The view is great, the breakfast was simple but enjoyed on a little terrace overlooking the Mekong.
Great stay!

We stayed for 4 nights including new years eve. The we're in room 2 upstairs, balcony overlooking the river and street. Not much noise of a night time. Phon and her staff were very nice. The room was clean and tidy, bed was typical for asia , hard. Breakfast was a simple affair, choice of eggs boiled, scrambled or fried, baguette, fruit, coffee and juice.
The booked reasonable priced tours for us and no complaints. I would probably try somewhere different next time mfor no other reason than I see other properties that I would like to try.

We stayed two nights in the rooms 5 and 6, including New Year's Eve. Both rooms were spacious and clean; beds were comfortable. As stated by other reviewers the rooms were noisy during the day but didn't present too much of a problem at night. However, the cooling system is very noisy and couldn't be left on when you were trying to sleep.

Phon and the other staff are what makes this place special and worth a recommendation. When we arrived we needed to pay for our Elephant Camp overnight stay at the Shangri Lao. Phon took us to the office to pay and found us a retaurant for New Year's Eve, (this wasn't a great experience, however, but definitely not her fault). Location is excellent - close to everything, yet very quiet.
