I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Luang Prabang! The hotel is pretty small, however perfectly set up to offer an enjoyable stay. I had a corner room upstairs, with balcony facing the street and windows on 2 sides to get lots of natural light. It was perfect, no noise from the street, other then the nearby roosters. The room was perfectly clean, had wooden floors, air conditioning and a fan, a great queen size bed with firm mattress for a good night sleep, free wifi, safe, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast was served next to the garden, and it consisted of fresh fruits, bread/toast, made to order omelettes, tea, coffee, juices.
The location was perfect, as right along the tak bat route. I would wake up in the morning 5 mins before the monks procession arrived, and go down on the street to take photos right in front of the hotel. It wasn't crowded with tourists as it appears to be in other locations in town.
The hotel is within easy walking distance from everything (Mekong River, temples, shops, restaurants) however renting a bicycle is the best way to go around, especially in the hottest months.
The hotel provides airport transfer for $8. Opposite the hotel you can have your laundry done on the same day for 10,000 kip per 1 kg.
Unless you are looking for luxury and a swimming pool, Villa Chitdara is the perfect place to enjoy Luang Prabang and the morning monks procession.
