This hotel is very central. Rooms were good but initially had a corner room 16 which was bigger and excellent. Returned after a trip to room 14 which was not so big . Breakfast freshly cooked . Small issue with shower dealt with that day. Would recommend this as a reasonable family run hotel.

Well located in the city the hotel has good sized rooms with full en-suite amenities and the outside dining room caters for all tastes at breakfast. The beds were large and comfortable and the service good.

The Villa Chitdara is a little laid-back, like the whole of Luang Prabang. It is situated half way between the Mekong and Nam Kan Rivers, and a few minutes away from the main street at the end of which the night market takes place. The building is sort of colonial French, built mainly of highly polished wood. The rooms are... More

In a quiet sidestreet, yet close enough to all the action to reach pretty much everything within a five minute walk. The rooms are small, but very comfortable. Very clean. Good lighting to be able to read in the comfortable bed. A small balcony with a table and two chairs. Capable aircon and a ceiling fan. Hot water in the... More

This place is magical, friendly, welcoming, comfortable, convenient - and hosts that has been the best experience in Laos so far. It is walking distance from the river, night markets, temples and restaurants. The monks also pass here in the mornings for Alms Giving. I would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast is great and there is free WiFi. Even... More

The rooms as this lovely guest house have beautiful teak furniture. The place was quiet and comfortable, very centrally located, and the staff very friendly and helpful. Included breakfast was very good, with some options and some items that are relatively unusual in this area.

This is small but beautiful guest house, friendly staff and lovely room. We stayed here for 2 nights, it is near the main street and easy to walk to night market and taste local food. Dont forget to get up in morning to view the monks collect food from local people.

I only stayed one night but I liked it here. Very clean, presentable rooms with their own balcony. Excellent location, good wifi, room safe, fridge and TV. Easy walk to the Mekong river and to town. Mini mart on the corner of the road and do try Khaiphaen which is a restaurant around the corner - it's really good. Recommended.
