“Very good but not great”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Excellent staff and very clean rooms. There were a few minor annoyances that made our stay a good one instead of a great one. The wifi was a bit spotty and we could not access it in our room, the cable TV did not work, and they do not accept credit cards.

These issues were inconvenient and annoying but I would still recommend this guesthouse as the staff really was amazing!

We stayed in this lovely guest house at the beginning of the April. We really enjoyed the quiet location and lovely service that we got. We had included breakfast, so it was no rush for us to get up early. We always ask for the bicycles, which we rented from the guesthouse for free and ride around LP all day. If you are looking to slow down, for beautiful, well maintained and clean place this guest house is a great choice.

Thanks to the advice of other travelers we meet in Northern Laos we booked this guesthouse. And it did not disappoint. After traveling through SE Asia for the last three months we have seen a variety of guesthouse and hotels and the hospitality we received here was some of the best, if not the best. Upon arrival we were treated as if we were the only guests here and all questions were answered with a smile and the desire to make sure we were completely satisfied! For example, one morning when we asked where we could find a motorbike to rent, without hesitation the owner made the arraignments for a drop off and pick up of the motorbike at the guesthouse for the time and day we wanted. And for days when walking around town didn’t suit us we had free use of pedal bikes.
The room we stayed in had nice view of the garden with a view of the Nam Khan River thru the various trees. The room was very clean and provided enough space and storage for two travelers with backpacks. When we first arrived the temps were just over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and having both air con and a fan made for a quick cool down and with the mini fridge to keep the two complementary bottles of water cold was a nice little luxury to have. Another great plus was the soft beds (always a nice treat when traveling thru this part of the world for us Westerners), daily housekeeping which included clean towels and linens every other day. Breakfast also was included in our rate and we used the laundry service twice with great results and for 12,000 kip it was ready by the end of the day with an early morning drop off.
The location was another big plus as it was across the Nam Khan river, which is accessible by bamboo bridge (this time of year) or the pedestrian bridge just down the road, so it made it much easier to explore more than just the main city center. This also made for a different experience in watching the monks collect alms as we saw no other tourists and unlike the collection in town were able to hear the chants after they collected their alms.

My partner and I have just stayed here for a total of 5 nights and couldn't be happier.

The guesthouse is clean, comfy and quiet and the staff are so helpful and really lovely to chat with. It's located just on the other side of the bamboo bridge which we loved walking across each day. Once you cross your basically right in the centre of town so we just walked everywhere, except when we went to see the waterfall and the guesthouse helped organise scooter hire for us.

We left the guesthouse to do a two night elephant tour and they happily took care of our large bags so we didn't have to take them with us, which was a huge help! They also arranged pick up and drop off at any bus/airport.

We would 100% stay here again. Thank you for having us!

This is a fantastic little place, a short walk out of the busier part of town. The owner and all the staff made us perfectly welcome and we were always glad to head back to cool off in the ac room or relax in the beautiful building. Rooms had everything you could want and it was great value for money. The airport transfer and help organising a motorbike made things that little bit easier that make all the difference. Ask about the midnight bowling out of town if you want a fun and random night out in L.P. with the backpacker scene.

We only stayed here two nights but the people made us feel so welcome and were so friendly we wish it could have been longer. Yes it's not on the right side of the River but the short walk is no problem and you will want to cross the bamboo bridge anyway. The bathroom was a tad small but the place is well furnished and clean and breakfast was lovely too.

We stayed several nights exploring LP, headed north for 3 nights then came back for 3 more nights. This guesthouse has been most comfortable, the staff are exceptional, they are exceedingly friendly and helpful and Mr. Kamphone will do anything and everything he possibly can to ensure that your stay is comfortable. The location is excellent, a few minutes walk over the bamboo bridge to town but far enough away that there is little noise. There is an excellent lunch shop 50 metres from the gate, the lady makes exquisite chicken fried rice and fruit shakes. There is a shop directly across the road for small items and a high class restuarant near the bamboo bridge. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar, sometimes the pillows are very large.
