I stayed at Villa Merry 1 for eight nights. My room was very comfortable, the shower was great, and the breakfasts (banana pancakes for me) were enjoyable and reasonably priced. The outdoor decking overlooking the river is a relaxing place to sit and watch the river world go by. Friendly staff and the owner is very helpful.

This is a lovely little guesthouse. We ended up staying here six days. It is set in a quiet neighborhood, overlooking the nam khan river, and easy 15 minute walk into the old town. Staff, and the owner mr. Sam, are gracious and helpful. Rooms are nice with good bathrooms. Breakfasts are reasonable and tasty. Thanks!

This hostel is right on the river bank of the Khan River. The views are breathtaking. The rooms were a bit small- Upgrade to room with balcony. The bathrooms are the downside to staying here. It is very difficult getting into the shower/ you have to step over the tub. The breakfast was good. Staff is friendly and speaks English...

We stayed at Villa Merry 1 for 3 nights during a short stop over in Luang Prabang and it was one of the finer hostel experiences we have had. We booked a double room which was huge. It had an AC unit which worked great and a mini fridge to keep your beers (or water) cold. The room and bathroom...

We (family of four with children ages 11 and 8) stayed here for three nights. We had an enjoyable stay and found the owners very knowledgeable about the area.

The staff here are friendly and most of the staff are English speaking so no difficulties getting advice for the area.
