Luang Prabang Hotel by Villa Merry Lao III
Reviewed 15 March 2012

If you were thinking of booking this hotel because of the great reviews, think again. This simple hotel is on the tiered side.it is across from a club that plays very loud music until 11:30 pm. Our room was # 21. We were not provided with 2bottles of free water which is customary. There was no shampoo or body wash in the dispenser. A small bar of soap was all we got. The toilet splashed water when the room above us flushed! Best to move off quickly if you just happen to be sitting there at the time. Unfortunately, I woke up the second morning to bites all over my body. I informed the staff and they came to change the sheets. I told them I had used the blanket from the closet and I thought it should also be washed or cleaned. That suggestion was ignored. The blankets are still in the closet. Although the sheets had been changed and I did not use the blanket again, I woke up with many more bites. Four days later and I still have itchy welts.
Luang Prabang has many many nicely decorated, clean rooms for less. It's worth it to dig a little deeper for something much better.

Room Tip: Avoid room 21.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Okay stay - although probably a bit on the pricey side. Interior is a bit old. Staff were very helpful and friendly - makes a world of difference! If I went to Luang Prabang again I might consider taking a look around at other accommodation.

We turned up for a twin as per the booking. No twin ! The very friendly lady helped us to another hotel and made a contribution to the additional cost. Very reàsonabe.

We stayed in the Villa Merry Lao III Hotel for 5 days. The staff was very nice and the breakfast yummy. Our room was big and always clean but sadly the rooms look a bit old. Maybe the owner should renovate them. The hotel is located near the center and all the main attractions can be reached easy by feet.

A small hostel located right in the centre of Luang Prabang. The room is well-designed and cozy. Above of all, the staff in the hostel was excellent, Ms. Thu manager was so friendly and helpful, she went out of her way to help customers with a big smile, always! She recommended us her brother's hostel in Hanoi which is brilliant - may de ville backpacker hostel. You should definately come here for your trip to Hanoi after Laos!!

To Thu and her colleagues, thank you so much for making us so special stay in your hostel!
