Reviewed 24 August 2014

Bring insect repellent! the hotel is right next to a lake area (mosquito breeding ground! and you have breakfast less than 5 feet from the waters edge!).

But that is the only negative really. as long as you are wearing repellent, you will have a great time. rooms not spacious, but not small, well decorated (for Laos) and full of substantial furniture. the wifi works well in communal areas, not so well in rooms.

Staff are friendly and helpful and will give you advice on where to go to eat. For breakfast, i used Joma Cafe rather than the hotel but that's just me, my friends said they enjoyed the omelettes and coffee.

I stayed at this hotel while on a tour so I can’t comment on the price or value. The room I had was good (room 204), with a large bed (very firm), a wardrobe, a large flat-screen TV (not used) and a couple of chairs. Lighting was good. There was plenty of hot water. Unfortunately, the shower floods the whole bathroom. Air conditioning was available but was not used, as the weather was cool. There was no heat in the room but it didn’t get too cool and there was adequate bedding. Fast wifi is available free of charge, but probably doesn’t get to all the rooms; otherwise you can use it in the common area near the router on the second floor. Breakfast was cooked-to-order eggs or an omelet with toast. Some noise from the street but away from loud clubs, restaurants, etc. About a 15-minute walk to the old town area (2 ½ long blocks).

The hotel is fine, nice bed. The wifi reaches some rooms. Breakfast was fine, nothing special. I just felt it was a bit out of things, and I prefer to be closer. You do get a bit more sense of the town by walking out there. The people were helpful with light bulbs and laundry.

More of a hotel than a guesthouse, spacious well furnished rooms, en suite, AC and fridges, TV's in all rooms, Wi fi available free of charge but had to use in communal area as unable to use in room. However, room was not cleaned thoroughly on arrival, sink in en suite was stained with toothpaste . Also room had a bad drain smell ( room 107 on ground floor) and despite running the water and blasting the AC the smell was still bad. The room although having two windows these look out onto a high brick wall which is only a few feet away so room was very dark and had to use electric light. We mentioned the bad drain smell it to staff and we were moved to a different room on the 1st floor - this rooms was fine, bright and airy and no smells. Breakfast was lovely on the terrace every morning and all staff so very accommodating.

Room Tip: Avoid room 107 on the ground floor even if no smell from drains the windows face a high brick wall a...

We stayed in 2 different guesthouses before we found this one. Both had problems with cleaning and staff. We had no problems on both counts here. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are more hotel than guesthouse with daily cleaning and everything you need- AC, TV, fridge and ensuite bathroom with plenty of hot water and even a shower curtain (very rare in Asia). The bed was very comfortable and the hotel is really quiet. Free WiFi- not good in all rooms but there are sofas next to the router. Our AC packed up one night and the staff couldn't fix it so moved us to another room. We were getting the night bus out of luang probang and were able to stay in our room until 6 for a small fee (most places charge full room rate). Alternatively they allow you to stay in the communal area and have a shower before you leave. We checked out a lot of accomodation in LP and this place beat them all.

I think the guesthouse has a great location. It's two long blocks (5-10 minutes walk) from the main attractions (market, temples, cafes) and busy roads. It's far enough that your sleep isn't bother by loud and busy activities. The room is spacious with air condition, wi-fi, clean, and the bathroom is nice. I spent four nights at Villa Kiengkham and I didn't find anything wrong with it. The staff are really nice and helpful by telling where to go and what to do. I would highly stay here again if I ever visit Luang Prabang again. Restaurants are located in every direction and there is a diversity of different kind if you're not feeling up for Lao food.

We stayed 3 nights here and is was a good base for seeing Luang Prabang.Room was large,with heavy dark furniture typical of Laos and an adequate shower room. No view but breakfast served in the garden by LOVELY staff.Night market about 5 minutes away and plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
