Really enjoyed staying here. As others have said, perfect location and good comfy rooms.
Air con slightly noisy but you do need it. Shower and bathroom is OK but Mossy screens in Bathroom need replacing really - a bit taped up but in January, no big issue.
Friendly staff and comfy bed at very reasonable price.
Would stay here again. Loved Luang Prabang - well worth a few days.

For an expensive city, villa meuanglao was very budget friendly and all I was looking for was good wifi, working ac and a hot shower and it easily provided all three. The staff were so friendly as well. They also provided complimentary coffee, tea, bananas and rice cake snacks in the lobby all day which was helpful. The location really couldn't be beat. Very quiet but literally steps from the morning vegetable and fish market and night market, half a block from the mekong and national museum, as well as being a few blocks from the alms giving ritual. I would definitely stay there again. Because they leave the shutters and windows open when rooms are empty, sometimes there are a few Mosquitos in the room on arrival, but it wasn't any kind of problem. Similarly, when I left a cup of coffee out overnight, the next morning there were maybe 10 note sized bugs on and around the cup but when I wiped those out they were gone. Clearly not any kind of problem there and more my own fault than anything. Otherwise it was clean, spacious, quaint and wonderful. I still unquestionably recommend the hotel to anyone headed to lp.

As everyone else has said, this is a great place to stay in Luang Prabang. Most importantly for us it was extremely quiet. The room was comfortable and the shutters meant that it was completely dark at nice which was great.

The location was excellent, just a couple of minutes walk away from everything and right next to the morning market. After the market, the street was a little dirty but if you wanted to avoid that it would be easy to walk the other way out of the guesthouse.

The only problem with this place is that the shower was not so good. However, it was good value for money and I would definitely stay here again.

This place is rated as one of the best value guesthouses in Luang Prabang and it deserves its reputation.
Its located up a small dead end road off the main Mekong River road only a block or so from the National Museum complex, so very central but quiet.
The room was very spacious with a large flat screen TV and ceiling fan as well as AC. The bathroom was particularly nice with a partition separating the shower and a counter around the sink - two features very much appreciated.
The bed had a wonderful duvet and was very comfortable.
The rooms are modern with tiled floors, but there are nice decorative touches to soften the feel.
The front desk clerk spoke good English and was helpful. I wanted to stay on longer but alas, the place was booked up. Highly recommended.

Lovely guest house with very friendly staff. Great location a few steps from the Mekong, and just around the corner from the early morning fruit market and the night market food stalls. Big clean rooms but the shower could have been better.

This hotel is in a great location, it was easy find. We were near the river, night market, tourist attractions & some nice restaurants. The hotel its self was nice and clean, the staff were really helpful, They spoke English, I think it was family ran. We got our laundry done and it was done extremely quickly which was important to us as we had onward travel plans. We had a room on the second floor, it was clean, spacious and comfortable.

Unfortunately breakfast wasn't provided but there was plenty of places around for breakfast. I would highly recommend Joma cafe and le cafe ban vat sene. The breakfast was just that little bit more expensive in le cafe ban sene for breakfast but definitively worth it.

We chose this place due to positive revues on TA plus the price was right. We stayed here for 8 nights. It was perfect for us. The rooms were clean and very well appointed. We had a table and chairs outside to enjoy a glass of wine, relax or read. It's small (9 rooms) and quiet, located off the main road. It's steps away from the morning market and the Mekong. From this location you can walk all over town safely.
The people who work there are friendly and helpful. Comsouk speaks fluent English and is a wealth of information. He also took us on some tours of the area which were memorable and informative in every way.
It was so hard to leave. We love our guesthouse and we love Luang Prabang!
