“Nice cozy guest house”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

The guest house is nice, within walking distance to most sites and night market. Room is small but clean, they have a safe which is good. The shower water pressure is low though. Breakfast is simple, you can choose different types of eggs eg scrambled, omelette, hard boil. They will give you bread, fruits, coffee/tea. By the river has a barbecue buffet that cost 60,000kip/ head. Cheap and good. Wifi is provided, though strength is low.

Overall experience is good.

Luang Prabang is spendy considering the part of the world you are in. Finding an affordable spot was not the easiest thing. This place was not on either river but close by the Mekong. And pretty affordable. In case you read our other reviews you will see we prefer places with character over new or stale environments. This place had rooms with character. The staff was extremely nice and very helpful. Breakfast (included) was good. Incredibly close to morning market (measured in mere meters) and only one block away from the evening market.
We had three rooms (five adults) and all of us liked the place.

We would most assuredly stay here again.

I spent 3 nights here as an introduction to Luang Prabang. It was a good choice!

I was in room number 2, which was on the ground level. It was clean and spacious and the one thing I would change was that the windows had 2 sets of wooden shutters which, for security, pretty much needed to be permanently closed. This made the room dark and gloomy with no natural light. It was, however, perfectly comfortable and roomy.

I was assigned a twin room (for single occupancy) in spite of a request for a double being on the booking (done through a consolidator rather than with the hotel direct) and I had to run with that as I couldn't make the staff understand what I wanted.

The staff were a delight and were so friendly. The boy in the evening had a good command of English and was keen to chat to improve his language skills. As a single traveller I liked this and it was a definite bonus and not an intrusion.

The hotel is 2 minutes from the Mekong River in one direction and 3 minutes from the Night Market in the other. Absolutely everything in the Old Town is in walking distance.

Breakfast wasn't included however the hotel has changed its policy and now includes a simple breakfast for all guests. There was tea and coffee plus bananas in the lobby all day.

Room Tip: Nothing to do with the hotel but please be careful when exchanging money in the town (there are lots...

Good location between the centre of town and the river...5 mins walk gets you to the heart of Luang Prabang and the Mekong is a stone's throw away. Good airy rooms, simple but tastefully furnished with tv, aircon etc. Breakfast is also nice and the staff friendly. I will definitely be back.

We found the location of the guest house convenient for walking to all historic areas of Luang Prabang.Our bedroom was well furnished with a comfortable bed and the bathroom facilities were acceptable. The patio area made a pleasant breakfast location.

The cleanliness of the hotel was of the highest order and the arrangements which the staff kindly made for us for the taxi to collect and deliver us to and from the airport worked extremely well.

This hotel was a great overall value. Just steps from the Mekong river, just abut everything you need is within walking distance... restaurants, bars, shops etc. Plus it seemed like every day there was a temporary street market popping up in Luang Prabang.

Most importantly, the room was clean. There is free wifi and it works well. The décor was modest but not cheap, in fact the teak window shutters were very nice. given that you are in town and this is a small guest hotel, do not expect spectacular views. However, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable jump-off point for your adventures in Laos, this hotel will serve you well without breaking your budget. For what I had planned, the Villa Meuang Lao was perfect.

Room Tip: Room 6 was off the street, but given that this is basically a pedestrian street it probably makes li...
