Even though a little out of town, this hotel did not present any problems. It takes 5 minutes by tuk tuk which was free anyway. It is run by Porn and his mother who made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very dark but clean. Breakfast was fresh with cooking done to order straight to the table. The management did like guests to be back in the hotel by 11.30 which was a bit odd but again after a days travelling we were back before then anyway finishing off with a beer back at the hotel. All in all very good value for money.

We had a few choices of where to stay in LP, but eventually settled on this based on booking.com and trip advisor reviews, we (a group of 4 friends) are sure glad we did.
Although it is a wee bit on far from city center, the tuk tuk ride/ bike ride is short and let us see in to the lives of the locals and more of LP. Bonus!

We arrived one dreary rainy evening, but were so warmly welcomed by this mother and son who runs this hotel. We were given welcome drinks and a quick lowdown of LP and were oriented quickly to the city.
Tuk Tuk down the street into town is free by the hotel, and it was how we met a wonderful Australian couple who introduced us to some fantastic Lao massage and eats.
We also were able to rent some GREAT bikes with zip up baskets (courtesy of our hotel mom) for a day ride around town. The bikes had headlights, and were just such a fantastic way to see the town. Hospitality here is second to none, any questions we had were knowledgeably answered.
The guy's room had a wonky shower, and they were without any problems given a new room.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room, for a good balcony view

We had a really enjoyable stay at this well run family property. Nothing was ever too much for the owners (run by mother and son) breakfast was lovely and the free wifi and bicycles were a bonus! The property was a short tuk tuk ride from the night market and tours, day trips were always recommended by the owners- great for those who are travelling with no plans! Room was really nice and I would highly recommend this boutique hotel for anyone travelling to Luang Prabang. The owners were always very smiley and seemed genuinely happy to help you. Great service and value for money.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights We had booked a deluxe room and the owner's son admitted he didn't have one available. We were shown two rooms. One was smelly and not very clean and the other was slightly better but right next to the building work that another reviewer mentioned. The room was dark and grubby. Nothing worked as it should and in order to get to the toilet I had to squeeze past the bed. I knocked myself every time on the bed corner. We said the room was unsuitable the next morning and we were moved to a slightly better one but although it had a little terrace it was impossible to sit outside as there was a mosquito infested pond just in front of us. Perhaps the people who give this hotel a glowing review stayed on the first floor but we cannot recommend it and we heard others complaining while we were staying so it is odd that there are all these glowing reports on trip adviser. We regretted not staying in the historic centre of Luang Prabang and yes he does offer free tuktuks but it is a pain being out of town. The breakfast is ok and the family is friendly but there is no way that this is a three star establishment.

Staff are lovely, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about things to do in the area. We didn't have a booking, and when we showed up the staff greeted us warmly, offered a welcoming drinks and took the time to show us their types of rooms. Rooms and very clean and there's a nice garden in the back of the hotel to stroll in, if you're into that kind of thing.

This hotel which is run by mother and son,couldn't be any better.
Their was nothing that paul would not organise for us,be it a tooktok into the main street,a hiring of a motorbike or a late night couple of beer laos.
Their genuine happy and freindly nature made our stay so pleasurable

I highly recommend this hotel. Why?
Because the owners (Loatians - family run) have the best hospitality I have ever encountered.
We were made to feel like family the moment we arrived. My room was comfortable, breakfast was tasty and filling. I was always offered more than I could eat. Beautiful hotel, with meditative grounds. The hotel manager is a great guide, who is always willing to help no matter what time of the day.
Free strong wifi connection.
Free bikes or free tuktuk into town.
I was actually sad to leave.
I will return next time I AM in Luang Prabang.

Mama we miss you!!!!
