“Too far from the center of town”
Reviewed 16 May 2007

We stayed here for two nights in early 2005. The hotel itself is rather new and rather sterile. But, overall, it was fine as a place to sleep. Quirky little things that you commonly find in Asian hotels
existed. For example, our room was on the top floor and our room looked out on the vaulted roof - and I mean it was nearby. You could literally open the window and scrub the tiled roof!

The big downside to the Manoluck is its location. It is too far to comfortably walk into town so you are always having to grab a tuk-tuk. Since it is not a resort, by any stretch of the imagination, there is no advantage to being so far from the center. Instead, you get none of the advantages and all of the disadvantages of being far from town.

We left after two nights in order to stay in town. We liked the guesthouse that we stayed at on the main drag of Luang Prabang much better and it was cheaper, too. From our new location, we were able to watch the procession for morning alms right from our balcony.

Reviewed 17 November 2006

I stayed at the Manoluck for 4 days over New Years (Jan '05). On the positive side; the rooms are clean, the service staff are very helpful & friendly.

On the negative side; it is expensive, there is no sign of room service or a fitness centre... so if they DO exist, I was totally unaware of it over the 5 day period I stayed there.

There is also a lot of "neighbourly" noise from adjoining properties (roosters crowing 24/7, and the odd outbreak of EXTREMELY loud Karaoke).

On new years eve the staff had a party in the restaurant, to which all guests were invited to participate (and eat) for free. This turned out to be a truly enjoyable experience, and one of my fondest memories of Laos.

To the Staff at the Manoluck, thank you for a wonderful visit, you deserve a BIG pay rise :-D
