I really enjoyed my stay at the Village Lao Wooden House, especially the location. It is very centrally located (one block to the Mekong River, one block to monks getting alms, one block to restaurants), but it is on the least busy street so there was no road noise to speak of. There were some sounds of life in Luang...

This converted French colonial home has retained the magnificent wood paneling from floor to ceiling, providing a lovely ambiance to the room and making you feel like you have stepped back in time. The room furnishings and bathroom are modest but clean, and the courtyard garden out front where you take breakfast is very pleasant. The owner and his family...

Lao guest house was perfect. Great Location. Short walking range to almost all of the city landmarks, but at the same time quiet and away from the main streets. The hospitality and warm welcome of the owner and staff was second to none. I felt immediately at home and wished I could have stayed longer. The building itself was beautiful...

Villa Lao Wooden House is a great place to stay, right in the middle of Luang Prabang's charming older district. It's a block or two away from both rivers, the Mekong and the Nam Khan, and five minutes' walk from the sacred confluence of the two. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. The place is small -- two stories,...

I stay since 6 years every year a full week at the Wooden House and will certainly return again. The location is very good right in the middle of the UNESCO protected area and the court yard of the guesthouse is a perfect chill-out zone. The rooms are a bit dark based on the wooden colors but everything else is...

We has this accommodation as part of a tour we were on. It was a great place to stay being walking distance to the town and to the river (to watch the sunset). Breakfast included in stay was lovely and the staff friendly. The owner picked us up from the airport and nothing seemed to be too much for them....

Although the rooms are all timber and therefore on the dark side, there is a good feel to this place. Nice relaxing outdoor area where a nice American style breakfast is served as part of the deal. And of course the location is a winner. Scores of monks trudge past at 6 in the morning to collect alms - one...

We arrived at 5.30AM and we were really really tired because of the bus ride. We were already prepared for the fact that we would have to wait until 7PM before we could check in, BUT thankfully they opened the gate for us at 6PM already; I was so gratefull because we could sleep for another few hours in a...

We were coming from Vientiane for the weekend and had a last minute booking as we couldnt find available villas that were centrally located. Luckily, Mr Vong the owner of this villa promptly responded via email and we were able to get 2 rooms for 4 people. This is a small, family-run villa with very limited rooms. Very reasonable prices....

Very good value for what we payed. Great location, good wifi, decent breakfast, clean rooms, and friendly staff. Also a very short walk to the main street and night market. For what we payed, we couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend for anyone on a tighter budget.
