“Great Staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

We stayed at Villa Merry in May of 2011. My boyfriend was very sick with food poisoning that he had gotten in Hanoi the day before. The staff was incredible. Chou (I hope I'm spelling this right) was awesome! She took me to the pharmacist and helped me get medication. She switched our room immediately when the aircon didn't seem to be working (our new room was perfect and they fixed the other room the next day). We left to go on an elephant mahout training excursion and she kept our bags for us and let us pay for the stay when we got back (as we were staying another day upon return). The morning that we got back we were eating breakfast and my boyfriend fainted. She rushed us into a room on the ground floor and made him tea. When he was able to get up again she asked the staff to remake his breakfast for him. I can't say enough good things about her. She was very good company for me when he was sleeping as well. She speaks good English. The rest of the staff are really nice too, though they don't speak English. However, they were always smiling and happy. Chou made our stay in Luang Prabang even better! Definitely stay at Villa Merry Lao-Swiss!

Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very spacious and clean. Bathroom was roomy and fit for purpose.

Breakfast was delicious, can definitely recommend the banana pancakes.

Went on excursion booked through hotel, good value and excellent service.

Literally, when I arrived hot, tired and sweaty the first and only thing I wanted was a shower. After getting a few dribbles out of the tap I went to reception to get told there was no water as they were fixing the hot water heater. Couldn't have told me before I paid could they.
AC then also was not working but at least this was an easy fix.

Stayed 3 nights here and found it comfortable and clean. I recommend it if you don't mind climbing stairs or walking a bit to get to the more interesting parts of town. I'd consider staying here again but would also look at some of the smaller guesthouses.

The young man, Paul, who is the receptionist/porter/short-order cook is incredibly friendly and efficient. When I checked in, the first room had a funny smell in the bathroom, the next one had a rattling air-conditioner, so he patiently escorted me to a third one.

The place is quite good, but you could probably find equally good places at the same price closer to the main street. The roosters mentioned in earlier reviews continue their morning crowing but what do you expect, this is not the big city.

We booked this hotel online ahead of time and wished we had waited and found something when we got to town. It was ok, but we definitely could have found a better deal in town. The location is good. There is a great bar and traveler's book store (with free movie showings) across the street. Everything is in walking distance. We felt safe walking around at night. The staff were extremely friendly, but often gave us incorrect information (he didn't seem to have any idea where a laundry shop was, but spoke confidently when he told us directions). The rooms were also ok/reasonably clean/a bit noisy. Breakfast was slim, but the banana pancake was incredible!
