Villa Meuang Lao

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This is a great place to stay in Luang Prabang. Good location, friendly staff, charming rooms.

The only minus is that our bed was a bit hard. But better than most places in Lao.

We came back after a trip to Hua Xai:)

Family owned Villa around the corner from the food market and the royal palace. Internet works well and the rooms are large with lovely timely decor. The only thing to I saw to improve was cleaning under/behind the bed etc..
Overall great value and highly recommended!

**Be aware that the location on trip advisor is way off. Agoda has the right location on their map.**

There are lovely old homes and hotels in French colonial style and nice cafes along the riverbank. There are many restaurants and jewellery and clothing stores. The night market is great. There are lots of monasteries and temples in the old quarter, many are worth visiting. There is a great museum that used to be a royal palace

I booked upfront 3 nights in this hotel/hostel based on the good recommendations, it was the worst decision I had!!!
The location is great, but it's such small town, so it's not really matter, there were no really hot water in the bathroom, breakfast is very poor, the owner who is normally in front desk is really not nice, they up charge you with everything - laundry, bike hire.

There are lot of better places, so save yourself - go else ware!!!

Room Tip: go else ware

Dear,

Thank you so much for your comments, we do appreciated and we hope that our villa is not the worst hotel in all of your travel in southeast Asia.

we just want give you some small words to your comments;
1. we do have real hot shower, presumed that you don't know how to operate it, each hotel quite different how to operate it.

2. We agreed our place is small and run by local family and breakfast is not luxury like big 4*-5*hotel. but we think it's worth your money.

3. We will find out our staff who's not nice and friendly to our clients and he/she will be warned.

and please not that we do only laundry service but not bike hire.

Best regards,
Khamsouk

The Villa Meuang Lao was a great little boutique hotel in a fantastic location. The staff were super friendly, the location was great, they did a great job with our laundry and the breakfast was tasty. Great value for the price!!

Yes it is clean and centrally located but so are many others. Not sure worth the price though. I had room 8 -very little natural light unless you want to open window to outdoor hallway where anyone can look in. Overall ok but nothing to write home about.

We stayed at this guesthouse for 3 nights and enjoyed our time there. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the included breakfast was great and just what you need. The staff here are all family and very friendly and happy to help. The location was great, very close to the royal palace and within walking distance to everything. Would definitely stay here again.
