Wat That Guest House
Ranked #54 of 70 Hotels in Luang Prabang
Reviewed 18 October 2011

We stayed there for 8 nights in February. We pre booked from Hanoi at 120,000Kip per night which we realised was far too much when we got there. Noy was a nice hostess but has since left. The rooms were very average but clean. It is central to everything you would want to do but we would not stay there again. There are numerous guesthouses in the area of a much higher standard at a considerably less cost.

I have stayed here again in 2009 and 2010, I did not get to Luang Prabang in 2011 but will be there in 2012 and will be staying at Wat That Guest House where I have stayed for many years. It is like coming home!

I really, really like Luang Prabang. It's been compared to the south of France and southern California. It's definitely one of the prettiest cities in Asia.

As far as I'm concerned, there's only one place to stay in this fabulous city. Wat That Guesthouse is the perfect combination of cozy and comfortable, with private bathrooms, wireless internet, and a central location. At 80,000 kip ($10), it is a good value.

What makes this place stand out is the people. The main proprietress, Noy, is a charming young woman who speaks great English, is an excellent cook, and has a rare ability to make everyone present feel like old friends. The rest of her family is really welcoming too. Her father has an encyclopedic knowledge of the northern Laos, loves to joke around, and is a devout Buddhist who volunteers his time at Wat That at the top of the hill, a 450 year old temple dating back to the reign of King Xetthathirat.

I honestly think about this place every day, and recommend that everyone interested in seeing how friendly Lao people can be stay here for at least a few days. My family is planning a trip to Laos around Wat That Guesthouse, and I guarantee they'll have a great time.

Set on a quite side street near the river, Wat That Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a small guesthouse with wonderful people, clean and comfortable rooms for a good price!! Noy is a beautiful and kind-hearted hostess and made us feel like we really belonged in Luang Prabang - besides that, she's a great cook; able to whip up fantastic breakfasts, a Lao BBQ, Lao coffee or even pour the Beerlao or Laolao to make you smile! Everything is within short walking distance to Wat That but it's location, just out of the way from the busier tourist area, is ideal! We left to tour the north of Laos for a few days and returned to stay at Wat That for 3 more days - it was like coming home!!

I stayed at the Wat That Guest House in April 2006 and again in January 2007; This is a clean budget guest house just a couple of minutes walk from the night market and the river. It is family run by Noy and her parents, Noy is a wonderful friendly woman who speaks good English which she learnt from her foreign guests. I pay $8 per night for a small room with double bed and its own shower room with hot water and a toilet. There was a fan in the room but no aircon which I don't find a problem in Luang Prabang.
Noy also serves excellent food and drink in the area in front of the Guest House where there is also a TV and DVD player with plenty of movies should you require it. I will always stay here because of the friendly atmosphere that prevails; Noy looks after her guests as though they were family and is always on hand for advice. Though there are many excellent places to eat in Luang Prabang I found it hard to beat Noy's Bamboo Chicken freshly cooked to order washed down with a Beer Lao. It is a safe and relaxing place to stay in a lovely part of old Luang Prabang. I hope you will stay there and enjoy it as much as I do.
