“Perfect location, good guest house.”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

This place was slightly more expensive (£15 for a twin) than most other guest houses in the surrounding area, but for us it was worth it. Rooms were of a decent size, as was the bathroom - both very clean. Good air con, tv and free wifi. Perfectly located off of the main street which plays host to the night market. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The proprietors were friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable if a bit dark on the ground floor. The room had airconditioning, a television, and a clean bathroom. There was not a breakfast included, but the hotel is not far from many choices to eat. In the small lane in which the hotel is located there was a morning market, and it is only a half block to the street where the night market is set up every evening. A good if not remarkable place to stay.

We greatly enjoyed our week long stay at the Golden Lotus. The staff service was excellent. We were pleased that there was ample hot water for a good shower. Just outside the door is a wonderful morning market that is a feast for your eyes, nose and ears. The night market is just a very short walk from the guest house. The museum and a significant temple are around the corner.

We were please to have found the Golden Lotus.

This hotel was not bad value for money, although I think we might have found better in this price range. The rooms were neat and clean, amazing shower, but the bathroom had that horrible drain smell that permeated the whole room if the door was left open. We also found it difficult communicating with the staff and couldn't check out at 7.45am as there wasn't a staff member in sight, even though they knew we were leaving early. Good location though - right near the night markets.

I visited Luangprabang for about 10 days and spent about 7 of this days moving from guest house to guest house because I couldn't quite find the right place. Of the places I stayed before Golden Lotus, they were a bit old and dingy, beds were uncomfy and springy, and I had a hard time communicating with the staff since I'm American and don't speak the local language.

I found Golden Lotus while walking through one of the alley ways during the morning market and heard someone speaking English!! Low and behold, it was the Manager Tommy talking to some guests. So I went inside and asked if I could see the rooms and what they look like. The place has about 9 rooms, was built in late 2009, has nice tiling, COMFY beds, clean floors rooms and bathroom, Air conditioning units, hot water, and free hot breakfast with tea or coffee. They also have a cute dog!

Immediately I fell in love with this place because it felt like home away from home and probably one of the best places to stay in a "rural" place. I travel for business and pleasure a lot in the states and internationally so I'd like to think I've experienced it all, the good and the bad, and this place is by far the best in town.

It was an amazing stay because Tommy showed us around, told us about the must see places, and was so accommodating. Since we didn't know anyone, We asked him to go eat with us and to also go to the (nightclubs) and he was more than happy to join us!

I normally don't write reviews but I had to for this place. You can also find the guesthouse and email for reservations through www.luangprabang.com. I'll be sure to return to this guest house next time!

If three stars is average and 4 stars is very good I would probably give this place 3 and a half stars for good but I don't have that option so I've rounded up to four.
The location of this place is a real winner if you like to be in the centre of things. It's in a little laneway just off the night market area. The laneway can be a little smelly and noisy in the morning because it has a fresh produce market but that doesn't affect most of the rooms as they face the back.
Rooms are OK. Medium sized, clean enough (although a little more attention to the damp in the bathroom wouldn't hurt), with a noisy aircon and an LCD TV on the wall (only one I saw in a three week trip to Laos). The manager speaks good English.

My friend and I visited Luang Prabang in late May early July 2010. We were walking around town searching for a guesthouse and came across Golden Lotus Guesthouse. This guesthouse was just opened in late 2009. The rooms are clean, with airconditioner and the bathroom is also clean.

There's a TV in the communal area, with free coffee and tea for the guests. There's also a computer with internet connection at the reception desk, which is available for guests to use.
Tommy, the owner is very friendly and helps us to get a van transport to the airport. Also chit chatted with us when the weather was just way too hot to step outside.

The location of this place is one of the small market lanes of the morning market in the town, and just a stone throw away from one of the main roads in the town. You'd expect it to be quite noisy, but it is actually quite the opposite, making this place really very convenient. It's also just a few streets away from the street-food-night-market.

Totally recommend this place for anyone who wants a good value of money, and accessibility to many of the attraction site. Best part is that it is just about 10-15 minutes walk to the morning alms activity.
