Aham Corner Guesthouse (Aussie Sports Bar & Guesthouse)
Ranked #83 of 265 Luang Prabang B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 January 2013

I moved to this guest house after spending my previous night in a pretty nasty place just out of town. After a heavy New Years party I was in need of some quality comfort and a decent meal...
John the owner and his staff provided exactly that.... My room on the 1st floor was big,clean,had a big hot shower, good wifi,tv and air con...these rooms upstairs also have a really cool balcony area that runs along the two front sides of the building looking out over the street,a perfect place to chill out.... The restaurant here also serves some delicious food,and lots of it too.... And if its desserts that you're into, then just try one... They are awesome!!!!!

Room Tip: Pay a little more and go upstairs...!!!

After the 2 day slow boat from Houay Xai arrived at the aussie sports bar, john the owner i think could tell we were exhausted and get us straight into our room.. we got one of the cheaper rooms downstairs and it was awesome and comfortable(made me wonder how good the rooms upstairs are) Straight into the proper rain shower which was an unexpected luxury. Decent sized flat screen tv with hbo movies, cnn, bbc and on epl night had 4 games showing on different stations concurrently! Bed was abit softer than the average se asia hotel room and along with the 2 sets of doors to block out light/noise and modern quite aircon made for a good nights sleep! My only qualm would be that breakfast is quite expensive once you add in a basic bacon and eggs and a juice or coffee for 2 people maybe even if breakfast isnt included a discount could be offered to people staying at the guest house. Food at the bar was invariably good western food with large portion sizes and make sure you get a dish with the homestyle chips! Staff were all very friendly and felt safe and secure (they offered to take my hired moto into the bar after lockup behind where security guard slept!) Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms downstairs are great value!

And stay at the Aussie Guesthouse.

Home comforts while traveling abroad are hard to come by and after nearly four months in S.E. Asia, I had all but given up on finding any - then I walked into the Aussie Guesthouse with their beautiful, spotless rooms, breezy wooden porch, and smiling staff. Proprietor John, despite running a restaurant downstairs (that whips up some DELICIOUS plates - especially the Chicken Parmesan and the breakfast sandwich with BBQ sauce) was endlessly helpful with dining recommendations, pointing us in the direction of some unforgettable establishments. Our plan was to stay for no more than three nights, but after one day of the Aussie Guesthouse's charm, we extended our stay to eleven nights and loved each one.

A wonderful place for weary travelers to relax and recharge. Thank you, John and the Aussie Guesthouse for helping us regain our travel gumption!

We moved to this guesthouse as the rooms were a much better quality than others we had stayed in in town, and were cheaper too. The location is great, your not far from anywhere, everything is withing walking distance in the town. The rooms are also really good, for $20 you get a clean room hot shower, big tv, and aircon, and though the breakfast is not included it is pretty amazing! What makes this place really special is the owner, he was so helpful and friendly, I would without a doubt stay here again!

Room Tip: around $20 for a room downstairs and more for a room upstairs but the downstairs rooms are really gr...

We spent about 5 nights with John, Jenny and the ever smiling team at the guesthouse in May 2012. John is a great source of info on the area (although he still hasn't climbed Mt Phu Si....can't blame him, it nearly killed me!) and can steer you in the right direction regarding prices and where to go- and not go so you avoid any dodgy food etc.
We were in Rm 4 I think which was comfy and had everything you could need- A/C, flat telly, fridge and good rainfall shower which I could actually stand under (6ft5 so its rare in asia).
The bar downstairs is a great spot to sit and people watch with a cold Beer Lao before heading out for the night....and the food- still the best burger I've had in SE Asia, and better than most back in Aus.
All in all it was a real home away from home, and is probably a lot to do with why Luang Prabang has been our fav place so far on our trip.
Thanks Guys!
