“Avoid, please!”
Reviewed 2 March 2008

When I looked at their website, I have a good impression on what to be expected: it looks stylish. I booked 2 rooms at the rate of $40/night. But when we (4 of us) arrived in the GH, we were totally dissapointed as the rooms were more of backpacker's level, dark, damp, sheet had not been changed from previous guest, no towel provided. Not worth the money at all.

Reviewed 23 January 2008

The tum tum cheng guesthouse is located very conveniently only a few steps from the boat arrival point and literally next to the Wat Xieng Thong, one of Luang Prabangs main sights. It's also on the smaller "back street" and not on the main street which is nice because you can observe the monks giving alms ceremony from the hotel garden in an authentic setting instead of the touristy main street.

The guesthouse itself has 10 rooms. They are fairly small and the shower/toilet combination is very basic. The toilet will be totally wet once you took a shower and it won't dry quickly like in other places we've been. There is no breakfast included in the room rate. The room is very basic and there's not enough space to put things. On the other hand the staff is very friendly and they help you with things such as laundry, infos etc. I think there are better options in Luang Prabang for the money we paid. One couple stayed for 9$ and had breakfast and a nice room while we paid 30$.
