We pre-booked this based on the reviews here and were not disappointed. It's an attractive well-built building with good-quality clean rooms and lovely dark shiny wood. First time round we stayed three nights in a road-facing room so we could see the monks pass from our balcony, although we ended up going downstairs to watch from a respectful distance. Breakfast in the garden dining area was simple but decent enough and the staff polite. After a trip up to Nong Khiaw we returned to Luang Prabang for another two days and were happy to stay again. This time we asked for a garden facing room which was identical, my own preference was the tranquility of the garden view. References elsewhere to the noise of the cockerels had me fearing a cacophony but they weren't disturbing at all. If I had one improvement to suggest, it would be for the balcony seats to be more comfortable, I'd have enjoyed sitting out longer! The Chitdara was fully booked for our second night back so we stayed two doors down at the Villa Lao Wooden House, which was also very good (and $15 cheaper!).
The location is great and there is plenty to look at just wandering a few streets radius. There's a little shop opposite that also does laundry which was useful.
