“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We had 5 nights at Villa Meuang in late June & found the Guest House to be in a good location, clean & comfortable and good value for money
It is well located close to the river, restaurants, the night & very interesting morning market. The staff were very friendly & helpful & it is an easy walk to most sights in the city. It is located in a quiet lane that is away from the busier (if there is such a thing in LP) streets.
Recommend hiring of a bike to get around the city at your pace (USD3 for the day) as it's very flat with little traffic
We loved Luang Prabang & would definitely recommend & stay again at Villa Meuang

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs at the rear are quieter

Firstly, the location is excellent. Right on your doorstep you have all the main sights of Luang Prabang.
The accommodation is good, pretty building on a quiet lane with traditional wooden detailing.
Now the bad...
The air con was ineffective, the room was an uncomfortable temperature for the three nights of our stay.The shower was without exception stone cold. The bed was hard (as is the theme in most guesthouses),The wifi was next to useless...
For nearly $30 a night there is better value to be found elsewhere.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you very for your good comments for our villa ! and we will improve whatever you suggested for coming future ! Our villa is family run, and we hope we will learn from your idea to develop our service and more,...

But, as we had experiences :
1. Air condition - we found quite a few guests that did not know how to operate the remote control to have a good air as you wish. there are 2 systems; one is for cold weather that you need more heat and one for for warm weather that you need more cold. So, if you pressed bottom for cold weather then it will be warm.
2. many guests said to us that they had a full hot showered, maybe you just did not adjust it the right position.

anyway, thank you so much for your advise and we will give you more infos about our villa when you com next time.

many thanks,
Khamsouk

i stayed here recently for 5 nights, had booked room for first night in nearby Mekong Holiday Villa but did not want to stay further nights there. Discovered the Meuang Villa down a lovely peaceful leafy lane, and it was a delight to stay there. lovely spacious, clean and well appointed rooms and a general relaxing feel to the guesthouse. Very well located to everything in the town. Good value.

I spent three nights here. It is a lovely little hotel. The room was definitely comfortable for two and there are also tables and chairs on the outside walkway/balcony to sit and read or sip on some coffee in the morning. Everyone was very kind and helpful. There is no breakfast, but there is always coffe, tea and bananas available in the reception area. There is also a nice morning market on the street perpendicular to the street the hotel is located on. The hotel is very centrally located to many things you will want to see and do in Luang Prabang. It was a bit tricky to find, so here are some directions. As you are going east on Sisavangvong, watch for The National Museum/Royal Palace Museum. Make a left BEFORE the museum. Follow the small street and make the first left (as I recall). You will see a side gate to the Royal Palace Museum and a small guard booth. Next make the the first right and you are there. You will have a nice, peaceful stay here.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in May. It is in a perfect location up a little lane from the Mekong and a stones throw from the morning wet market and the very colourful night market.
It is easy walking distance to all of Luang Prabang's many sights and of course the delightful eating and drinking places. The building is beautiful so much rose wood. Our room was clean spacious and comfortable and from one of the windows we could see the top of That Chomsi Stupa (Phousy). The staff were helpful and very laid back typical Laos style. Tea coffee and fruit continually available in reception area. They do not provide breakfast but being so close to cafes and restuarants it did not matter. Had a very pleasant stay and would stay again if ever lucky enough to get back to the beautiful Luang Prabang.

Thought not by the Mekong river, the location is relatively good. Easy to orientate and about 5-10 mintues to the main street where all the restaurants are located. Value for money. For the amount we paid, I thought the rooms were clean, spacious and well-equipped. Wifi could lapse at time but generally good. Workers at the front desk speak good English and provides good service. Much better than those we met in the main city, Vientiane.

I stayed at Villa Meuang Lao for one week in May 2013. The hotel is a family-run local business. Location is great as it is within easy walking distance of most of Luang Prabang's sights. Morning and night markets are just around the corner. I was in a back room upstairs and there was no street noise and total privacy. Staff were keen to respond to any questions or requests. The room was spotless. The TV, air con and wifi worked well. There was fruit available at reception and purified water for refilling water bottles. I had no problems with bugs. Just wish I was back there now!

Room Tip: My room upstairs at the back of the building was very quiet and private, but the hotel is located on...
