“Veru Good, Excellent LOCATION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012 via mobile

We are very luck to book this giest house as there are only 8 rooms in this guest house. The staff and owner are very friendly to help and offer tour information for us.

The guest house is located in only 3 mins to National Museum and night market. And the monk will pass by this guest house at 6 am every day.

The room is wooden style, very clean and comfortable. The free breakfast is wonderful with Lao Coffee and season fruit, bread, eggs,

I strongly recommend when you travel Luang Prabang, this guest house is the only choice. When I come back, I will stay here again definitely.

This is a very nice guesthouse in a great location and close to the pier with restaurants close by. The property is very nice and the terrace area has some tables for breakfast and is a nice place to relax. We had read that the rooms are a bit small, but in fact showed larger in. The room was extremely clean and the bed was quite comfortable.

The included breakfast is delicious with a selection of sandwiches and eggs served various ways with a baguette. You also get a selection of coffee, tea and a fruit place.

Honorable mentions would be the mini fridge, complimentary water, coffee & tea station on the terrace, the free map and glass of juice upon arrival.

Coming back to Villa Laodeum feels like coming home. The owner and staff remember me, though seem as helpful and friendly to new comers as they are towards me. True the second floor rooms have more space and I always request one of these. The place is just a block from Mekong River and near the night market, ideally located to explore Luang Prabang on foot. Rooms are on the small side, but cozy, clean and nicely decorated, with very comfortable beds. Nice terrace for hanging out during the day, good breakfast and free wifi and airport pick up and drop off. Nice touch is 2 free bottles of water a day that come in refillable glass bottles, so they don't contribute to plastic bottle waste.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms in general better than downstairs rooms, though in some cases no difference

Staff is first rate, location superb, a block from Mekong bluffs. One block to Night Market, perfect location. Family run with attentive and kind staff who aimed to please. In the early morning, the monks file right by the guesthouse with their alms bowls. Great breakfast on the veranda, wonderful budget wise room rates, A/C, television (BBC, CNN, etc.) endless hotwater, giant shower. The owner speaks excellent English, will make local arrangements for bike rentals, day touring, river boating, etc.
I've stayed here several times and certainly will again! Sok Dee, Sayvanh!

This is the first time trip advisor reviews let me down. I don't understand the rave reviews for this place. The rooms are miniscule - barely enough room to move around the bed. The bathroom is equally tiny. Most rooms have only one window - and it looks onto ugly tin roofs. I tried to get some light into my room, but the shade would not stay up. The walls are paper thin. I heard every word of the phone conversation of the person in the room next to mine. I also received incorrect travel information from one of the employees - this was simple information - I asked about boat travel to Nong Khiaw. I was told the river was too low. In fact, the boat was leaving daily to get there. Breakfast is adequate - nothing notable. For the same price, you can do much better in Luang Prabang.

Room Tip: There is one upstairs room that has a street view. That is probably the best room.

We stayed at Villa Laodeum three separate times - first for three nights, then for one night after returning from a three day side trip, then for two more nights before we left for home. Every visit was very enjoyable. It's difficult to imagine a better location, but it's the friendly and helpful staff that make this place a wonderful place to stay. Example - we'd originally walked to the guest house in the hot afternoon sun with our packs from the boat station, and were greeted with cool orange juice and a time to rest before checking in - this was very welcome. Breakfast has many selections, giving you variety over your stay. We received many helpful suggestions for things to do and how to best accomplish them - good value for a traveler. They can provide sticky rice for the monks if you want to participate in the morning alms ceremony, but are not pushy on this (but do watch out for street vendors around their corner who sometimes try to push their food on you while the monks are coming by.) While the rooms are small, we all agreed we didn't come to Laos for large hotel rooms, so we really didn't consider this a detriment. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms are nice in that you don't have to climb the somewhat steep stairs, but can be...
