“Very Enjoyable Experience”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

An experience in a guesthouse of Luang Prabang is a must. The hospitality and the dynamic compared to a hotel are totally different.

First, the city of Luang Prabang is magical. The serenity of the temples, the charm of the narrow walking streets and the simplicity of the habitants create a unique peaceful atmosphere. Just strolling slowly around the peninsula is a pleasure.

Second, the guesthouse where we stayed is located in the city center. We could come back to our room several times during the day since it was close to everything. Furthermore, it is located directly in front of the Mekong River with a superb view on the mountains and the small pirogues crossing the river. On top of that, every morning the monks walk right in front of the balcony for the alm procession. Needless to say, it is an ideal location.

The guesthouse is brand new and we were probably one of the first customers. It is mainly made and decorated with dark wood. It is equipped with air con, hot shower, cable TV, free Wi-Fi, a desk-top computer at your disposal, free coffee and water. Everything was very clean : the room, the bed, the private bathroom and the communal areas.

Our room was on the small side : there is enough space to walk comfortably, but it is a little bit narrow once our personal effects were laid on the floor. The bathroom was big enough.

The contact with the owners is what makes this guesthouse special. The guesthouse is run by a small family of locals. They know everything about Luang Prabang and gave us numbers of recommendations. Their English is limited, but once we got beyond the initial shyness, we had memorable discussions on the balcony. The owner told us that many visitors came to Luang Prabang once, and decided to come back permanently. He wanted to make sure that we enjoy Luang Prabang. We could really feel his genuine sincerity and honesty. His wife even took the time to show us the neighborhood by walking.

We will be back to Luang Prabang and to Tha Heua Me !
