We stayed at this guest house for 4 nights and was very impressed. The guest house is only a few years old, however built in a traditional colonial style, so all facilities are new and to a high standard. The rooms are nicely decorated, with good air con, satellite tv and good, consistently hot showers. Free, good quality bikes are provided to guests. It takes under 10 minutes to cycle into the centre of town at a very leisurely pace.
The baguettes for breakfast are by far the best I have ever eaten, arriving fresh each morning. In addition to eggs, there are local options such as rice congee and Lao style Pho soup. All meals come with juice and fresh tropical fruits.
Mr Kampone is a very accommodating host and went out of his way to provide suggestions for our itinerary. His local knowledge was invaluable, and we feel we were able to get more out of our stay in Luang Prabang thanks to his advice. Each night when we returned he was there to great us with an offer of LaoLao (a famous Lao rice whiskey).
We returned one night covered in mud following a mountain bike adventure. Mr Kamphone told us not to worry, he would have our shoes cleaned for us, however I felt bad for someone else having to do this so did them myself, but it Is an indication of the lengths the staff go to at Phone Praseuth. We did get a load of laundry done, and it came back spotless and smelling fresh, which was a nice change after our laundry experiences in Vietnam.
Overall, I can't fault our stay. 4 days in Luang Prabang was too short, I am already making plans to return.
Thanks to Mr Kamphone and his team for the best stay of our trip so far!
