We had a fantastic time in Luang Prabang and this guesthouse was very much a part of this great experience.
We stayed for 3 nights. Made a reservation through email and got response from Peter quite quickly. The location is great. Right in the center of the old town, you can do pretty much anything on foot. We had a bit of trouble finding it though, since it's tucked away in a quiet little street, but if you prepare a little you shouldn't have that much trouble.
The service is very good as well. Peter and Manichan are very friendly and helpful as well as the ladies who work in the kitchen and keep the place clean. On checkin you will receive a map and some tips on things to in and around the town.
The rooms have everything you need (a nice bed and an AC/fan) and are clean. We had a room with a communal bathroom, which is good and clean, though the water pressure is a bit low.
The breakfast is also very good, with a lot of options. The breakfast area is basically a big table where everyone sits, which is great because you will meet your fellow guests and share stories and tips. Also a great place to meet people to share taxi's and boats with to the attractions that are a little far from town.
Also the free tea, coffee and water is a nice little perk.
Enjoyed our stay here massively and would definately stay here again should we return to Luang Prabang.
