“Reasonable guesthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

Overall a nice place to stay. My room led onto a shared balcony. Staff were friendly and room was clean and had some cable channels so I could watch English football after the bars closed.

For the $25 a night based on other hotels the room could have been bigger. Kept banging my leg on the bed and bottles of water were not provided. Showers were Luke warm but that seems to be everywhere in Laos.

It is located in the bar area, so if you are an early bird don't stay here.

Excellent character guesthouse in a great location near bars restaurants and sightseeing spots such as Mt. Phousi.
Only seven rooms so a nice cosy vibe, and the Manager K.C. is supremely helpful with advice, bookings and general banter. It is true that there are bars next door but the noise spots are 11pm on the dot so not a problem for us 20-somethings. We really enjoyed the five nights we spent here.

Booked in here initially in room 5 upstairs, was pleased to find it had a bath however don't expect to be able to have one, no where near hot enough water. Reflective of price I suppose though. Location very good for the bars, reggae bar is right next door. Moved downstairs to a much nicer room as we extended our stay by one night, as my partner was ill which also meant we missed our pre paid mini bus to vang vieng. However, the owner managed to book us on to the next days bus for a small fee despite us cancelling last minute (we expected to have to buy brand new tickets) very helpful. Good laundry service too and cheapest mopeds we found.

Room Tip: Personally found downstairs cleaner, quieter in terms of the reggae bar and better bathroom. Room 6...

We stayed here a total of 4 nights and the staff were very good with giving us a discount for staying longer. They were very helpful with washing, providing tourist information and hiring a motorbike (they had the cheapest price for motorbike hire that we found in Luang Prabang). The staff were very friendly and they booked our onward travel for us. The rooms were clean and well looked after, we had probably the fanciest bathroom we had come across in Asia that far. Unfortunately for this place, the quiet street during the day turns into a loud one at night so sleeping wasn't as peaceful as we would have hoped however we still did sleep quite well. We would definitely stay there again.

This guesthouse would definately be one of the best options to stay in LP.The owner is very friendly and together with his staff he will arrange everything for you from a tuk tuk to renting a moterbike or tourist information. The rooms are very clean and nice. So are the bathrooms.

We stayed there for 4 nights. The room is clean and lovely. The owner and staffs are nice and kind also. My requests of water fall tour and autobike were well arranged. After exploring Luang Prabang whole day, we always could get rid of tiredness with the air con and hot water.
The location is good also. Bars and resaurants are around it and you can reach Khan river bank by walk in one min.
